While the PPD may be on hiatus, it doesn't mean we can't still meet up for dinner. I've made a reservation for 10 at Hopsters
its a "brewery, restaurant, and unique adventure experience where you can brew your own craft beer." While we won't be crafting our own beer, we definitely can enjoy their selection of craft beers and great food.
Signups is on a first come, first served basis (in posting order). If we get more than 10 great, I will increase the reservation.
