Don't have a place to celebrate? Just need a break from your relatives? Wanna be able to say you spent the day being thankful with a charitable organization? (LVL1 is a 501c3, after all.) Ben is graciously hosting the 6th annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner at LVL1 again this year.
You do not need to be a member to attend this event. You don't even have to have been at the space before. (First time visitors will need to sign a waiver for themselves and any minors they bring with them. Minors will need to be actively supervised -- we have power tools after all.)
We are providing all the basics and folks are welcome to bring side dishes, desserts, and drinks. While this is aimed at folks who don’t have a place to go, all are welcome! Please RSVP and let us know if you are bringing a dish so our organizers can plan for everyone. You can sign up on our Facebook event page here or by adding your name to our Google Doc here.
Did you know that LVL1 has a textiles area with sewing and embroidery machines? This Open Sewing and Suture Night is not a sewing class, but it is an opportunity to bring in a sewing project or learn about our machines while other like-minded hackers are here. This event is free of charge.
You do not need to be a member to attend this event or use our equipment to make cool things.
This Saturday, 28 October 2017, join us for our 7th annual Sumobot Tournament/Halloween Party. You don't have to be a member to attend this fun event. Watch autonomous robots try to push each other out of the ring. Costumes are encouraged. (And, of course, all kinds of nerdiness is encouraged -- costumewise or otherwise.) Festivities begin around 8:00 pm and last until way after the last robot is left standing.
The Sumobot Tournament will probably begin around 9:00pm. The party has no end in sight.
Across the world "Repair Cafes" are being founded to help people repair things and save them from being tossed in the trash. If you're unfamiliar with the concept check out this short video:
This is actually a large part of what folks at LVL1 have done in our space over the years, however it seems that we may not be communicating this effectively. There's been discussions online regarding starting a Repair Cafe here in Louisville but given that we already have LVL1 and we're already set up to do this we thought we'd just set up a formal time for folks to meet at our space specifically to work on helping fix each other's broken stuff.
Come to our space every Friday night at 8 and help volunteer to fix things or bring in something broken for us to try and fix. No guarantees but we'll see what we can do!
