We’ll be having our first workshop at the Pop-Up tomorrow evening. Come by, meet some of our staff members, and learn more about our phones.


I thought I read somewhere that RW can validate parking with coming to the PU Shop, but when I was there on Friday evening, I paid for parking when I entered the parking garage that’s right around the corner form you. Where should I park?

–This is my RSVP because I do not like using Facebook.


Hi @apples2androids,

I’ll let the team know you’re planning to attend.

The two parking decks for which we validate parking are:

I’m not sure how it works if they are taking payment when you enter. I’ve only ever been when you get a ticket and then pay based on how long you park.


Thanks southpaw. If you walk out the front door of the PU Shop, look to your left & walk to the corner, the one that you can see straight ahead on the cross street–I think that’s Wilmington–is where I parked. –I’m guessing that the prepay was just because it was Friday night and a First Friday event.

Is this deck one of the two that you mentioned above?



I just parked there and am standing outside it now. The sign does indicate prepay on Friday and Saturday. It also indicates the lot closes at 7:00 on weeknights, so you might want to look for street parking.

Edited to add: There’s already street parking available on Martin just on the other side of Wilmington.


Ok, thanks!


Darn, I was held up behind a wreck and got there late and everybody was gone. :frowning:

I’m sorry about that. Did no one else show up?


Hi @apples2androids,

Sorry you couldn’t make it! We were there until just a bit after 7:00. (And that parking garage was still fully in operation!)

I hope we’ll get to see you at another event!


I made my first PU appearance at this event and enjoyed it a good bit. A very personal experience, great decor fitting for RW, and good coffee to boot! My prescription from tonight’s workshop: a Pixel or Z play. The Pop Up shop is a bit of a hike from home base (especially in rush hour traffic) but I certainly hope and plan to return in the future. I’d highly recommend any other local members do the same… you never know who you’ll end up bumping into (and, at least for me, it’s very cool to meet other members in person!)


I thought it STARTED at 7:00. I saw you guys there when I drove by but by the time I parked in the garage and walked over, all the lights were turned off. Darn! :frowning:


Mix 101.5’s Two Men and a Mom will be broadcasting live Saturday, 10/21/17 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM!

Street parking is plentiful on Saturdays. We hope to see you there!
