Also, posted notice of the One-off Pi Day on Mastodon at https://fosstodon.org/@aaronco36/102783211989286089/

Hope that this helps!

Apparently, that new post went by default to https://berkeleylug.wordpress.com , so am unsure if/when it'll appear there rather than on Michael P's "new" balug (BALUG.org) virtual machine
host for https://berkeleylug.com -- note the additional "wordpress" text sandwiched between "berkeleylug." and ".com" in just the "old" site.
Here is my post from this morning, just in case the WordPress people (via https://berkeleylug.wordpress.com/2019/09/13/one-off-pi-day-and-search-for-new-locale/ ) or Michael P somehow aren't able to get it out fairly soon ...

One-off Pi Day and Search for new locale

One-off Pi Day

BerkeleyLUG is having a one-off Pi Day this Sunday, 2019-09-15 from 12Noon to 3pm at Cafe Blue Door.  The regular BerkeleyLUG Pi Day is still the first Sunday of the month (next one is on October 6th.)

As regular BerkeleyLUG participant tomrlopes wrote on the mailing-list within the past two months :

Same place and time as the Berkeley LUG meetings:  Cafe Blue Door from noon till 3 pm.  Raspberry Pi, Arduino or any single board computer welcome.
Enable ssh (headless):  create empty file ssh in the boot volume
Preconfigure WIFI: mount rootfs partition and edit /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf  so that it looks like this
: country=US
: ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
: update_config=1
: network={
:       ssid="Blue Door Cafe"
:       psk="bluedoor2019"
: }

Search for a new locale

Cafe Blue Door has gotten quite crowded with students on the last couple of regular BerkeleyLUG meetups, what with Cal's Fall Semester fully underway.

As regular BerkeleyLUG participant michaelpaoli wrote earlier this week in a Comment following the last post https://berkeleylug.com/2019/09/02/site-hosting-moved-httpsberkeleylug-com-now-on-balug-virtual-machine/ :

... meeting venue has been bit of an issue and there’ve been some changes on that. This past Sunday’s meeting (2019-09-08) didn’t work so well with venue … though still many of us did settle/”squeeze” in there after a while (and attempting some nearby alternatives).
We’re continuing to look at / research alternatives – both venue, and possibly adjusting timing (notably possibly starting earlier).

One alternative that may be worth exploring before/during/after the One-off Pi Day this Sunday is Wrecking Ball Coffee Roaster's 1600 Shattuck Ave shop in North Berkeley, at the site of what used to be a Philz Coffee.
As its East Bay Express writeup Wrecking Ball Coffee Expands to the East Bay wrote :

The downstairs level of the two-story cafe is full of light. Upstairs, there's a long communal table for studying, a couple of small tables, some armchairs, a couch, and a small outdoor area that'll be turned into a kids' play area.

Note from the respective Yelp pages https://www.yelp.com/biz/85-c-bakery-cafe-berkeley-4 and https://www.yelp.com/biz/algorithm-coffee-berkeley-2 that both previous BerkeleyLUG meetup venues 85C Bakery Cafe and Algorithm Coffee shut down within the last half-year.
