March Meeting Agenda

NOTE: New start time of 6:00pm for social pizza and 6:30pm for meeting!

The next Philly CocoaHeads meeting will be Thursday, March 9th from 6:00pm - 8:30pm at the Apple Store on 16th and Walnut. After meeting drinks will commence at Fox and Hound Sports Bar at 1501 Spruce Street.

Please RSVP via Meetup:

Because our main meetings have a seat cap and tend to generate a waitlist we ask you to make sure to keep your RSVP status up to date.

When you arrive at the Apple Store let one of the store employees know you are there for CocoaHeads and they will let you into the back where you can come up to the second floor briefing room space.

For folks who drive in and need parking one lot recommend by the store is from LAZ Parking on Chancellor Street.
