Fridge, chairs, partitions, and warm weather
CoworkBuffalo has entered a bold new age.
Orville's came by this morning and put the finishing touch on our new fridge: a working water line. It is new and frightening, this concept of drinking "water" instead of "coffee" or "tea," but we're willing to give it a try.
Then again, we now have far more space for our members' frozen meals, leftovers, treats they want to share, and ice cubes. And do you know what you can make with ice cubes? That's right: iced coffee. So much cold brew is coming.
The space has also become the proud owner of eight steel black hex keys (commonly known as Allen wrenches, but you are discouraged from using that term). Using those little fellows, we assembled eight new modern office chairs, with adjustments for arm rests, lumbar support, lean-back tension, and a few other things most of us have yet to figure out.
Our portable partition was delayed in stock and shipping, but should be here very soon. It should create a semi-private area for mid-day or after-hour meetings at our conference table.
Finally, in describing this miraculous new era, I will mention that we have also acquired 25 amazing cardboard tubes, with which we shall mail out all the remaining rewards. We apologize for the delay to our local recipients; we were far too ambitious in seeking to coordinate a mapped-out and synchronized delivery of your goods. We're straight-up shipping them out next week, and you should seem them very very soon. And we're making time to finish up soundproofing on our phone rooms.
There are 11 members quietly cranking out their work at the space today. We have quite a few meetings lined up at the space this month for community groups, sports leagues, events, hacking groups, and others. If you haven't had a chance to check out the space yet, it's getting close to the perfect time to stop in. Bike racks and traffic signs are going up on our section of Main Street, and the Metro Rail will soon be back to its regular schedule.
Thank you to our backers, supporters, re-tweeters, referrers, and everybody who makes this space possible. We've been at our new space for six months, and we're really starting to feel at home here.
