There are chairs and tables on the second floor if you want to bring your lunch to the meeting. That is where we'll spread out our pens and inks and hold our meeting.

We will have a mix of vintage and modern fountain pens, discussions of pens and pen repair, and a lot of pens inked up to try out. Needless to say, the inked pens will have many different inks for you to try out.
These meetings are very informal, just for pen lovers to interface and share information.

There are many places to eat around Tanglewood Mall, including an Applebee's at the mall entrance as well as a number of restaurants up and down Electric Road; Rancho Viejo, a nice Mexican restaurant. A great upscale international restaurant is Montano's, very close to the mall. They open at 10:00 AM, some of us will be at Montano's between 10:30 and 11:00 for lunch if anyone wants to join us.
