BOL meetup: say goodbye to Tom Merritt

Updated with useful information, such as the correct date of the meetup and the actual time.

As you all know by now, Tom Merritt is leaving CNET and Buzz Out Loud, and his last day is next Friday. It seems only natural that we should send him off with a truly epic Buzz Out Loud meetup! If you'll be in or near San Francisco on Thursday, May 13, please join us at 5:30 p.m. at the Thirsty Bear Brewing Company at 661 Howard Street in San Francisco.

Tom Merritt, Molly Wood, and Veronica Belmont
Let's toast to the good old days (and beyond)

We won't be buying you beers, but we can all pool our pennies and get Tom some send-off brews. Bring along your favorite Merritt Moments from the last five years of Buzz Out Loud and let's toast to his past and future.
