I'd say let's try to find space asap, since we'll likely have a
sellout crowd tonight :-)

It would be nice to have it together to work on improvements if we can manage it. Personally, I'd love to help & shoot video and ask questions about the construction whenever. I'd be happy to assist this evening if you don't mind being quizzed the whole time.
