MAGS is headed into Marietta On Wednesday to the Two Birds Tap House. Anyway – I’m headed down. If you’re in the Atlanta Area and care to joins us please show up.
We’ll be back in Grant Park to kick off the summer, but please note that we’re doing it on WEDNESDAY, and not Thursday, this month. Please come out and join us at the Memorial Drive outpost of Doc Chey’s Noodle House. This location has a full bar and, if the weather is nice, outdoor seating.

This month we’ll be at Mason Tavern on Clairmont, just off of N. Decatur Rd. They do a decent burger, and if you want to hang around after 9:30, they’ll have live jazz. And in case you’ve been under a rock lately, there’s a hole in the highway that no number of metal plates can cover, so unless they’ve installed the stunt ramps by then, do consider MARTA or rideshare if your trip there might be affected by the I-85 closure.

Good people – If you are around Atlanta in on the 19th of January 2017 show up. My plan is to make a quick jump down.
Wednesday, August 3, MAGS will be teaming with LocationTech (https://www.locationtech.org) to present a geospatial event at Ormsby’s (1170 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta), from 6 to 8 p.m.
There will be time for some 5-minute lightning talks, so if you’re doing anything interesting with geospatial technologies, definitely come prepared to present to the group. Otherwise, join us for complimentary refreshments (courtesy of LocationTech) and an opportunity to unwind and interact with other geospatial professionals.
Presentations will begin around 6:30, and A/V equipment will be available if needed.
See you at Ormsby’s on 8/3 at 6 p.m!
Date: July 21, 2016

Torched Hop Brewing
249 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE, Atlanta, GA
By late July, I hope everyone will be adequately adjusted to the heat and allergies, and finally recovered from the Esri UC, if you were lucky enough to attend. To kick off summer, MAGS will return to Midtown on 7/21, to enjoy the setting of the new Torched Hop brewpub on Ponce.
Torched Hop is in the former Old Spaghetti Factory space, a 5-block walk or ride east from the North Avenue MARTA station (and a block west of Krispy Kreme). If you drive, there’s a fair amount of street parking in the vicinity, as well as free parking in the Camden Apartments garage behind Torched Hop.
Because most people likely have plans to celebrate the patron saint of pest control on the 17th, we’re giving you time to recover by pushing our March social back one week to the 24th.
By popular demand, we’re doing another north-side social this month. Please join us at Southbound in Chamblee on March 24,at 6:00.
Southbound is conveniently located in the heart of old Chamblee, at the corner of Peachtree Road and American Industrial Way, and is just a few minutes’ walk north from the Chamblee MARTA station.
We’ll be in the “Engine Room”, at the front of the restaurant.
