I've just recently got into fountain pens so I'm quite a newbie. I live very close to Pittsburgh and think it would be interesting to go but not sure if I would be out of place being so new to the fountain pen scene. Is there someone I could contact with any questions about the meeting? Thanks

You'll feel quite welcome. We're all users, just ordinary people who share the same addiction interest. Bring the pens, or ink, or paper you like.

 

As Joshua noted its at the Panara at Bakery Square. 7 PM,or later if your schedule requires. We usually break up between 8:30 and 9.

Or when Panera kicks us out because they want to close for the night.... :rolleyes:

BTW -- you can park in the garage for up to 3 hours for free. I try to park on the side closer to the elevator for the Marriott (as opposed to the elevator closer to Google) because I generally have a bunch of stuff with me.

I would love to come to one of these but I'm not a very big fan of driving downtown lol. It would take some working up the nerves to want to go through the tubes, I try my best to stay out of the city. I live in Finleyville about 35 minutes south of the liberty tubes. I think I seen someone post that you guys meet every month? is that right? I might try to make it to the next one depending on my work load in school at that time. I don't have any nice pens yet lol but I would like to see what some nice pens are like, my most expensive pen is a Metropolitan lol so ya we can say I'm pretty new to the hobby and it doesn't help that driving to school and eating takes 99% of my money.

The meetings are in East Liberty, one of the neighborhoods east of Downtown (I live in the North Hills, so I'm coming from a completely different direction). I'm trying to think if there's a better way for you that doesn't involve the Liberty Tubes, but it's Pittsburgh -- where "the shortest distance between to points is under construction" as the old WQEX sign off said.

Bakery Square (where the Pittsburgh office for Google is) is off of Penn Avenue and I'm wondering whether if you had some way to take the Parkway East to the Regent Square/Edgewood/Swissvale exit, you could then take Braddock Avenue to Penn. But otherwise, yeah, if you're way down there the main way would be to take Rt. 88 to to Rt. 51 (you can tell I'm a non-native -- I know my way around more areas, and didn't give directions that included such lovely Pittsburgh-isms as "turn right where the Isaly's used to be... B)).
