Don’t forget to come party with us on Friday & Saturday

We’re gearing up for one hell of a meetup this Friday. Come join the party at Vaudeville Mews after work – just make sure to RSVP so we can get you a shirt!

We’ve been hard at work building things that have never existed until today. Come out for an exclusive look at the future of Dwolla, and give us your unfiltered feedback. No press, no pictures, no tweets. Just the people who started it all: you.

Saturday night we are having another party, but the theme is a surprise for now. All we can say is…

Are you feeling lucky?
