I just got an email from saying that we have been accepted
into Tech Week. We have our own event on Wednesday 8 May from 7:00 to
9:00 p.m. They also gave me access to their Eventbrite to advertise our
event (not that it matters for *us* per se). In any case, this would
just be an additional PLUG meeting between Central and North in May.

Since we have our own event and time slot, we can make it whatever we
want to. The initial application I submitted to them was intentionally
vague but definitely covered the lines of intro to open source, meet and
greet with local open source leaders, stuff like that. So a happy hour,
should we choose to go that route, wouldn't be too off base from that
initial description.
