Every so often, fellow journo Jimmy Guterman and I go out to grab coffee, and we invite along some interesting people. We call it Coffee for No Reason, and we're doing the only CFNR of 2011 on Tuesday, December 20th. It runs from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM at Voltage Coffee in Kendall Square. The event attracts all kinds of people who work in Kendall Square, and elsewhere in the local innovation economy.

There's really no reason to go, hence the name. But you'll probably expand your network And sometimes there's some surplus swag being given away. (Often, it's new business books that Jimmy and I have received as "review copies.") There are no sponsors or speeches. The only cost is whatever beverages or baked goods you'd like to buy.

Our special guests at this edition of CFNR will include:

- Steven Kane, LuckyLabs
- Adam Medros, TripAdvisor
- Niraj Shah, Wayfair
- Victoria Song, Flybridge Capital Partners
- Nicole Stata, Boston Seed Capital
- Bill Warner, Co-Flow Investing

If you can make it, there's no RSVPing. Just tweet (or mention in a Facebook or LinkedIn status update) that you'll be there. Use the hash tag #cfnr, and link to this post.

See you there!
