Hey everybody, registration is now open for the jam...drop an email to either, or for a registration packet. There will be a cap of 100, so register soon!
who's excited, who's attending, and importantly does anyone in the area have a couch, floor, or backseat for two baristas from cleveland?
I've already got my flight booked. This sounds like such an exciting jam! I can't wait to be there!

any baristas looking to share accommodations? send me a message! (snoring ≤ 2.3 decibals, guaranteed!)
Alex, I was hoping to find somewhere extremely cheap to stay, but, haven't looked yet. Have you booked a room?

Any couches for coffee crashing in Easton, or, temporary hostels for hordes of hungry baristas?
