ELi is starting a new tradition of monthly “Open Office Hours” on Monday, March 6, and you’re invited. We’d love to meet readers, donors, and folks who are curious about what ELi is and what we do.
On the first Monday of every month, Publisher Alice Dreger and I will be at East Lansing’s own Black Cat Bistro from 7-9 p.m. with free appetizers, and room at the table. Plan to purchase your own drink and join us for conversation. Options include beer, wine, mixed drinks, soda, and coffee made from Bloom Coffee Roasters’ beans.
We hope you’ll talk to us about whatever is on your mind, including (but not limited to):
· what ELi could be doing better
· what ELi gets just right
· story ideas
· how you can become a reporter for ELi
· issues in East Lansing
· issues facing news organizations
· how Alice and I are far more charming in person than you ever would have guessed
Black Cat Bistro is located at 115 Albert Avenue in downtown East Lansing, just east of Abbot Road. Parking is available in the Grove Street ramp or City Lot 1 across the street. We really hope you’ll come out to share a drink and some good conversation with us.
If you think you’re coming, just let us know so we can get a count. Click here to rsvp.
