Wikipedia:Meetup/Seattle is a meeting in Seattle which often, but not always, takes place on or around the second Tuesday of every month from 6-8 at Café Allegro in the University District. The purpose of the meeting is to collaborate Wikipedia projects among Seattle-area Wikipedia users and to share in-person Wikipedia training. The meetup is entirely volunteer run. Meetings are free to attend but buy your own coffee. If you intend to come, please put your name on the list!


Café Allegro is in the alley on 43rd between 15th and University Way, 47°39′31″N 122°18′45″W / 47.658519°N 122.312626°W / 47.658519; -122.312626. It is among the closest coffee shops to the western side of Red Square at the University of Washington. At night there is street parking on 15th. Here is Google's entry for the place and a map.

Please note that the cafe has two downstairs rooms and one upstairs one. The upstairs room was renovated and it is possible to reserve tables for free or to rent the whole room. Generally we will reserve a table or two. Look for us upstairs at first, but sometimes we will be in the back room on the first floor.
