Announcement – New Two Hour Transport venue: Ada’s Technical Books Capitol Hill!
Note the Date & Time Change: Wed. Nov. 29th (last Wed. of the month), 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Nicole and I are delighted to announce that we have reached out to Ada’s Technical Books to host Two Hour Transport, and Ada’s has responded enthusiastically. Ada’s mission is connecting community, learning, and collaboration, and especially the technical sciences arena. Their mission dovetails nicely with supporting the community that we have built as Two Hour Transport. We’re excited to bring the inspiring, spine-tingling, and sometimes outrageous writing that has been the heart of our reading events to Ada’s!
To help smooth the transition, we would like to share the following information:
DATE & TIME CHANGE: We will meet at Ada’s on the LAST Wednesday of the month, (note: not the 4th Wednesday as before): this month, Wed. Nov. 29, 2017. This (slight) change made our event fit better into the Ada’s calendar. Also, we will be rolling back the clock and starting THT one hour earlier – so, it will be:
- Open Mic sign-ups: 6:00 pm
- Open Mic readings start: 6:30 pm
- Invited Readers – (no invited readers this month)
- End of event : 8:30 pm (Ada’s closes at 9:00 pm)
The earlier time start is an opportunity to come right after work, grab a bus from downtown, bike or rideshare or get a (free) street parking spot, pick up a beverage or bite to eat, sign up for open mic and read, and then head out at 9:00 for whatever comes next in your evening!
REMEMBER: November THT is all open-mic! Everyone is welcome, and consider bringing your reading on one of the three optional themes:
- “Gobble, Gobble, Tweet!”
- “An Invitation to Dinner – in space! with aliens! with Zombies or the Undead?”
- “After Thanksgiving dinner, you and a friend decide to explore the neighborhood. At the end of the street, you notice a giant pile of leaves. Together, you make a running start and leap right into the middle of the pile! Suddenly, the ground opens up beneath you, and you find yourselves sliding down a steep slide. . . .”
PARKING: Street parking is free, and there is usually ample open parking a few blocks north of Ada’s along 15th Ave E (it might be a bit scarce immediately in front of the venue).
ACCESSIBILITY: Ada’s has a wheelchair ramp accessible from the front of the property at street level that feeds immediately into the bookstore and reading space.
FOOD & DRINK: Ada’s Café offers a full range of café food and tempting sweets, as well as espresso drinks, beer and wine, and other non-alcoholic beverages.
As co-curators, we are excited about this new chapter in Two Hour Transport. Thank you, everyone, for your flexibility in moving with us to our new venue, and we look forward to hearing even more of your inspiring SF/F work!
