Potential plans also include a surveillance tour of the neighborhood led by some of the folks involved in the Domain Awareness Center campaign.

We'll conclude the evening with free drinks and dancing!

Sudo Room is located at 2141 Broadway St, two blocks from the 19th St Oakland BART. Curl left around the corner at 22nd - the entrance is on 22nd St. We'll be running from 12-6, so drop in anytime. Flier attached.
