"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.

Breakfast of Geeks

At 10AM (or occasionally other times) on some Saturdays, a bunch of like- (and a few different-) minded folk used to breakfast together somewhere in the Seattle area. Often, after eating, some of us played a boardgame or two (the discussion of which takes place on a smaller list). The location is announced by anyone who feels like it, and objections should take the form of an alternate suggestion. Want more information? There is a FAQ containing items that may or may not be correct, interesting, or amusing.

This has not been happening recently, due to a variety of factors that might be summed up as "getting old". This page is left as a memorial, and perhaps we'll start it up again someday.

at 10:00 AM on Saturday, 16 September 2000 PDT, breakfast was at:
Caffe Minnie's (Denny)

We are now seeking recommendations and proposals for next week's breakfast (10:00 AM on Saturday, 1 April 2017 PDT). The Random Breakfast Venue Generator suggests: Salish Lodge. Please nominate this if it sounds good, or something else if you have a better idea. And remember, nothing prevents you from registering your RSVP before a venue is chosen.

To announce a preference for a location, send mail to everyone interested, or to breakfast@dagon.net, which will re-send the message to all current invitees.

List of places we've been in the past.

These lists are not meant to be a limit on who is invited nor on what venues are appropriate. Anyone may add themselves to the breakfast list by sending mail to majordomo@dagon.net with the body of the message containing only the line subscribe breakfast, and anyone is free to show up if they like, with or without specific invitation. A venue may be nominated by anyone, but be prepared to defend its suitability for 10-15 poorly-organized attendees.
