Free Software Stammtisch

Restaurant change

December's Stammtisch will be at Spokes on Southern, near Southern and McClintock. In January, we will probably move to the newly opened sister restaurant, Boulders on Southern.

Social Box, nee Iguana Mack's, stopped working out.

Spokes on Southern
1470 E Southern Ave, Tempe, AZ 85282

Spokes' manager reached out to us to make sure we have a reservation. A much better experience is expected at Spokes.

About the Free Software Stammtisch

The Free Software Stammtisch is a social environment for GNU, Linux, *BSD and Free Software enthusiasts. We start arriving at 19:00 and hang out until at least 22:00, with several of us often there until closing time.

The Stammtisch in the east valley now meets in Chandler. There is also a Free Software Stammtisch in Prescott

If you are interested in starting a new Free Software Stammtisch, please contact der.hans, either in #PLUGaz on Freenode ( please specify a sane nickname and #PLUGaz as your channel ) or via You can also follow the Stammtisch at @flossstammtisch.

The Free Software Stammtisch is intentionally not tied to a particular group, but gets regular participation from members of groups such as the Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG), the AZLoCo, ASULUG and League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA).

You might have heard it called the Linux Stammtisch, the GNU/Linux Stammtisch, the FOSS Stammtisch or the FLOSS Stammtisch. That's us, we're just name flexible :).

East Valley


LUGY in Prescott has a Free Software Stammtisch on the second Tuesday of the month.

Former Locations

The Free Software Stammtisch originally met at Bandersnatch in Tempe for many years. Unfortunately, Bandersnatch was closed and bulldozed :(. The Stammtisch wandered around a bit. It still meets in the east valley, but now in Chandler.


There used to be a Stammtisch in Avondale. The person leading it got a job out of state and was unable to continue leading it.
