In the interest of getting things nailed down, would Z'otz in uptown
be an acceptable location for this week's meeting?

They're at 8210 Oak Street and have a projector and space we can
reserve if we give them a couple days notice. If this is a good spot I
can give them a call tomorrow and confirm the time for this Thursday.
They are located about 10 minutes from our current meeting location

As for discussion: I've got a presentation introducing Ruby and some
reasons not to use Ruby on Rails and Dennis mentioned having some Xen
related stuff to show off, which sounds really interesting to me.
