Digital Dumbo 21
"Can I come in?" I opened the door slightly and said.
"You are the first person to show. Come in," said organizer Kaitlin Villanova from across the hall.
The Dumbo Loft is a great space. Free beer is a great idea. And Kaitlin announced later that Digital Dumbo was now "officially the number two tech meetup in the city," a designation I have been rooting for at this blog for months.
There is the usual working the room. You say hello. You ask, what do you do? You collect a few business cards. You meet people.
I walked over there. I tried to walk back, and got lost. And took the train.
Just before leaving I got in line to use the restroom. I was towards the back of the line. People were using both restrooms in gender neutral ways to speed up the line. When it was my turn, I went into the women's room. When I got out, there was no line, and a woman I had talked to for about five minutes early in the evening was right in my face, giving a mischievous smile.

"Did you pee on the seat?"
"Oh, no, no, no. I would never do such a thing. You know that."
I opened the door.
"You left the seat up!"
"Well, that. Yeah. Sorry. That I did."
