We hear that the organizer of a Meet Me in Poughkeepsie event did a great job of telling everyone where the event would take place, except for the place's owner. Somehow the organizer neglected to inform the establishment that the event would be there and just told them a few days ago to prepare for a wave of Vassar folks. Luckily for the organizer and everyone else, it all worked out.
Update 10/11: The event organizer tells us that she did in fact inform the manager of the plans, but that manager never told the person who was working on Saturday. Sorry!
