COSE Conference This Week

Last week, I did try to attend one event, the Greater Cleveland Digital Marketing Meetup Group. Got to the location, a winery near Blossom Music Center, but it is now closed on Tuesdays. So the meeting moved to a local pub in the Akron area.

Problem for me, I got lost trying to get there. I do not have a smart phone or GPS, yet. So I went home.

I have been enjoying the Mackenzie Creamery toasted pumpkin goat cheese log I bought to share with the group.

The group has a locked this time on its next meeting location — Akron again! I hope this place is on Google Maps or Mapquest.
