You’re Invited: A High-Flying Urbnlivn Meetup – Wednesday, 29-Aug-2007

By August 19, 2007

by guest contributor Carl Goodman

Join us at the aerie of Seattle’s tallest skyscraper for our fourth in an occasional series of Urbnlivn Meetups, where you can share your passion for, downtown Seattle and all things condo:


Wednesday, 29-Aug-2007
6:00 to 9:00 p.m.


Columbia Tower Club
701 Fifth Avenue, 75th Floor
(corner of Fifth Ave. and Columbia St.)
No-host soda and full bar – Hosted appetizers

If you haven’t attended one of our Meetups yet, here’s your chance to join us in building a true sense of community and augmenting’s consumer-empowerment potential.

Nothing beats getting to know each and sharing tips on how to deal with hard-sell condo marketing tactics, uncertain economic times, and flux in the mortgage world. New to condo living and wondering how to get a handle on an unfamiliar set of Conditions, Covenants & Restrictions? Come to the Meetup and find out how to thrive among the self-imposed rules promulgated by condo associations.

Our Meetups also serve as a celebration of our role in Seattle’s transformation into a denser, more vibrant, but still wild, metropolis. Plus, we’ll get to hear directly from Matt Goyer – his angst is our enlightenment – on the latest ups and downs he’s experienced in attempting to sell one condo and close on another.

Extra Special Incentive:

Thanks to the Columbia Tower Club for hosting our Meetup and providing some delectable appetizers. A no-host bar will be provided, with drink prices (including tax and tip), ranging from about $4 to $8. Not only will we be meeting in splendor, but all Urbnlivn Meetup participants will have the opportunity to join the Columbia Tower Club during the next 30 days and pay the reduced initiation fee of $250 (versus the standard rate of $1,500). Woo-hoo! And, as an extra-extra special incentive, there’s always the renowned Columbia Tower Club Women’s Room to check out. That’s the one with the sign out front: “Gentlemen: This is the WOMEN’S Room. If you’d like a tour, please see the concierge.” So, if you gotta know the secret, come to the Meetup.


Given the generous offer of Columbia Tower Club, we need to have a fairly accurate estimate of attendees. Please use the Comments to indicate if you’ll be attending and specify the number in your party.

What better way to spend a midweek summer night? Hope you’ll join us on the 29th!
