Friday lunch time is an important time for new members to get to know each other and it has been a foundation of our community for over five years. Every Friday morning people starting jockeying on where they should vote to go for our group lunch. If you don’t  vote, Craig is going to suggest SliceWorks Pizza (great salads) or some place with BBQ.

On Friday’s there usually a group of ten or so members that go and it’s just a friendly environment that it is where more recently moved remote workers learn the ins and outs of their new city, make friends to play tennis with, and just chit chat about their favorite ski hill or coffee shops with board games. No matter where we go you’ll have a good time, but if you want to have influence on where we go then follow this guide for lunch on Fridays and any other day of the week. An educated voter is the best voter.
