PARKING: There is parking after 6:30pm midweek on the same side of the road. There is also one space opposite where you can leave you vehicle anytime. Sometime the spaces can be taken. In which case you have to leave your vehicle up a neighbouring street.

ACCESS: No stairs. Just straight in and walk 100 ft to the back of the room.

No effective blackout


PARKING: There are two parking spaces next to the venue - but they are only available after 6:30pm. Other than that you have to pay for parking in one of the nearby one-ways streets.
