We’re thrilled to invite you to The Urbanist’s second in-person meetup of the year! As before, it’ll be at Stoup Capitol Hill, an all-ages space with non-alcoholic options and a food truck outside (with delicious tacos).

This month, we’re adding a twist: a discussion theme. Join us and share your thoughts with neighbors on how you’re planning to engage with the Seattle Comprehensive Plan.

Urbanist meetups are a great opportunity to network, learn, and share ideas with like-minded folks. Whether you’re interested in transportation, housing, public space, sustainability, equity, or even if you’re new to urbanism, we invite you to join us. We promise we’ll always be hospitable, accessible, and thoughtful. Drop by to chat with some of your favorite contributors at The Urbanist.

The Urbanist meetups are held on the third Thursday of every month at Stoup Capitol Hill (formerly Optimism Brewing). Stoup is an all-ages space, and they have a small play area for kids.

The meetups will start at 5:30pm and end around 7, though you’re invited to hang out longer if you’d like. There is no formal agenda or presentation, though we hope to often invite those involved in recent Urbanist articles and activities. You can drop by anytime and stay as long as you want. And, of course, feel free to invite friends and colleagues who might be interested as well.

No RSVP needed — just bring your ideas and enthusiasm. We look forward to seeing you there!
