What do you get when you take some people who are into science, art, handmade goods, strange hobbies, and all kinds of media, put them in a room, and give them no agenda? Come and find out! We have been getting together for more than 5 and a half years now and having a great time meeting new friends, collaborators and people who "get it".

The Falcon Bar is a semi-permanent home for us, and with a few dollars of Graffiti Junktion credit to spend, we might even be able to provide some food this month.

Tell a friend, stop by after work, beat the heat of the afternoon and grab a craft beer or a glass of wine in downtown Orlando. You won't regret it.

Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!
