So I moved into town recently and am trying to get acquainted with the activists; looking at different groups to help out, going to events and demos, meetings, etc. Almost every time I ask where I can go in Olympia to find some folks to work with people say, "Well there's Media Island, but you probably shouldn't go there." When I would ask why I'd get a variety or reasons ranging from the building is unsafe, they allow sexual harassment, they don't respect their volunteers, it's just a "boys club", the list went on and on. Then I had done some searching on the group Media Island and found a review that seemed to back up most of what people had said (http://greatnonprofits.org/reviews/media-island-international-dtd-0391/90686/). I recently ran into some folks and asked them what they thought about media island; they said that it's a okay place but not many people go there and they don't know why. I was wondering, since this is the community of Olympia's blog, if anyone here had opinions on Media Island and could give me some background on it.

Hello fellow Olybloggers,
I have been working especially hard the past few weeks in preparation for the grand opening of my new holistic healthcare center in east Olympia, A Sound Body & Mind. I'm putting the final touches on the office in the coming week and want to invite you all to my open house party on Saturday September 27th.
From 6 to 8pm, the doors will be wide open. We will have tasty things for you to munch and sip as you check out the new clinic. Obviously, I'm very excited about it, as I'm hoping you will be when you see it. There is no need to RSVP, just stop by whenever you like. The address is 2747 Pacific Ave SE Suite A-12 Olympia WA 98501. There is also a map link on my website. I hope to see you all there.
To our health,
Chris Matyas, LMP
Hey y'all. I'm kinda new to Oly and yet I feel like I've lived here all my life.
I'm looking forward to meeting some cute babes once I get a real guitar and a few shows under my diaper.
Rock on Oly.
Recently, the New Moon Cafe (113 4th Avenue W. Olympia) has decided to open up its doors to the night-time crowd. New employees, a new menu and a new atmosphere have been expertly implemented in to the nightside equation! So come check out the raucous and risotto - prices are reasonable, and the food is ever so delectable. in addition to these epic changes, they have recently received their liquor license, which will be in effect very soon. Come have a beer and a burger! Meddle with the Nighthawks!

Nightside hours are:
Thursday - 6pm - 12am!
