Message-ID: <> has been meeting at Z'otz Coffee House uptown at 8210 Oak
Street <>.
Michael, owner of Z'otz, has been very accommodating and happy to have our
group meet there. He has offered to let us use his video projector at every
monthly meeting, provided we remind him a day or so ahead of time. The back
patio is a nice space. The video projection isn't exactly ideal (he has a
sheet that we put on the wall) but it works okay. I bet he would be willing
to let the NOLUG folks use his projector also. I will drop him an email and
see what he says.

Another place to consider is Fairgrinds Coffeehouse in mid-city. Perl
Mongers used to meet there. I've been meeting with folks
(we're starting a New Orleans hacker space) there every Tuesday for the last
couple months. Robert, the owner, let's all kinds of groups meet there in
his upstairs meeting room. I'll drop him an email and see if that Thursday
is open. He doesn't have a video projector, but if someone could bring one,
I think it could work.

Another place to consider are public libraries. A few months ago, I went to
a presentation about Open Street Maps at the public library in mid-city on
Carrollton. The organizer had reserved a meeting room and set up a
projector. I'm not sure if the projector belonged to the library or if he
brought it with him.
