First Mixer of 2010

NAAAP-Seattle opening mixer of 2010 signaled an eastward turn in direction, from the usual Belltown bars to Bellevue Grille.

Along with NAAAP-Seattle mixer regulars, there were many new faces and those who hadn't been to a NAAAP-Seattle event in awhile. By 8:15pm, 97 people had signed in and there was not an empty seat in the place.

I asked some Mixer attendees what they thought of this eastward turn. Comments include:

"I like that there's a lot of parking."

"Having it on the Eastside seems to attract a lot more Microsoft people."

"When it's Seattle, I can take the bus to the venue."

"I work and live on the Eastside, so I usually don't go to these events...but this time I did."

If you weren't able to attend, check out the photos snapped by Miles Matsumoto, NAAAP-Seattle's unofficial photographer, on NAAAP-Seattle Social Chair Jenny Xu's Facebook page:!/album.php?aid=146502&id=565614020

  1. Thanks for coming on Friday and making our first mixer a success. There were many new faces and I hope to see you again at our next event. Given the popularity of the eastside venue, I will likely alternate east and westside from now on. If you have any venue suggestions or are interested in help plan the next event, please email me at
