[Noisebridge-discuss] Benefit

Noisebridge benefit noizparty at riseup.net

the member shelves or leaving drinks unattended, &c.


This is the email address I set up for this event: noizparty at riseup.net.

queries received to the appropriate personnel.

it up the other night when I was there. I think we can print a big
