If you want to skip down to the good stuff, stop reading now.
TONIGHT, Wednesday, March 22, 2022, we're squandering a bit of the Club's money to throw together an end-of-season Happy Hour, which is just another excuse to drink and schmooze with no clothes on if that's your sort of thing. Oh, and we'll probably have a fun little meeting with some fairly decent topics right after that, if we get around to it.
The Happy Hour part of the whole affair begins at 5:30. We'll provide a STARTER SUPPLY of cheap beer, discount Cheeze-Whiz, government surplus crackers, and a box or two of Cardboardeau wine. We're hoping that all our erudite, suave, well-mannered and good-looking members with BRING a SMALL finger-foodie snack dish to share, ALONG WITH whatever they'd like to drink themselves as we cannot possibly provide something to suit everyone's tastes.
After we've all schmoozed sufficiently, we'll probably kick off our regular so-called "meeting," which will go live on the internet and in the Clubhouse at 7pm ET. It's all going to go down in the beautiful, spacious and comfortable Clubhouse at Cypress Cove. Don't feel like you have to dress up -- or at all -- because we sure won't!
Can't make it in person? Then feel free to join us virtually on Zoom -- read on for the deets.
How to Zoom in from wherever else you may be:
If you can't join us in person at the Clubhouse tonight, you can pop in virtually from your iPhone, iPad or Mac -- or, if you have a friend who hasn't come over from The Dark Side yet, it's even possible for them to jump in from a Windows PC, or an Android smartphone or tablet.
Best of all, you don't have to bother dressing up, whether you're coming to the Clubhouse or Zooming in from afar! Here's how:
First, read full info on how you can get set up and ready before the meeting right here. You'll need a fairly-recent Mac, iPhone or iPad and a good, fast internet connection.
Read all the details in the link above, then keep the following info handy for the meeting tonight:
As promised last time...
Office Hours -- The Doc is IN!
- Fantastical: We plan to do a deep dive on a -- uh, FANTASTIC -- calendar app for Mac and iOS called Fantastical. It's a paid, subscription-based drop-in replacement for the native Calendar apps on Mac and iOS, and for many busy people, it is well worth it. We'll also try out an amazing new feature in Fantastical called "Openings" that lets you easily find and book appointments or meetings with groups of people, eliminating the rounds of back-and-forth emails and messages that plague our existence.
- Apple Media Event Recap: Apple unveiled some really mind-blowing new products earlier this month, and they are already changing the landscape of desktop computing. We'll have a super-quick look at what-all they showed off, and marvel at the times we live in once again.
For Cove Apple Club Office Hours, we set aside the 30 minutes prior to our meeting for anyone to pop in who needs an answer to a quick question or two, or a bit of advice on all things Apple.
So bring your device and your question(s) and be ready to queue tonight starting at 6:30pm when we throw open the clinic doors and Dr. Mac tries to answer your wacky questions!
