@iancrowther @jkbits1 what's the budget & head count for food? Chilango says they can do it, i think i can negotiate it to £5/person or less.

yea, there's been some talk lately in some other meetups about providing soft drinks/water rather than alcohol might be more inclusive

its a learning environment, not a networking
although the latter still applies
you get my point

yep, agreed 100% :)
so around 40 burritos should do it? does the 40 include mentors
Ian Crowther
@iancrowther
May 31 2016 16:04
good question
i ask mentors to rsvp for food numbers
so yes thats including
we can push to 50 if we want, just means less food

at codebar we had them chop the burritos in half which worked pretty well. the burritos are actually MASSIVE and not everyone wants a food coma :-D
