Community Conversations at 7am

About Us 


Morning Fill Up

We believe open dialogue, and an exchange of ideas, can make communities greater. So, we created a platform for conversation... at 7am every month. Join us. 

Local, regional and national leaders come to Rapid City for a 24-hour blitz of conversations and collaborations through Morning Fill Up, a series of public gatherings intended to inspire and engage members of The Garage coworking space, as well as residents around western South Dakota, to put their creative energies into action for the betterment of the entire community. The series was founded by The Numad Group after a brainstorm the three founding principals had one morning over coffee while on retreat in Como, Italy.


The Garage

A space for community and coworking we dreamed up in the historic East of Fifth neighborhood in Downtown Rapid City, South Dakota.

The Garage is more than an office. Yes, people work here everyday. But we also hold intimate concerts with international acts, show movies and bring writers and directors in to talk about their work, showcase artwork by renowned artists, and host the occasional party.

On the National Historical Registry, The Garage has traditional features found in a more corporate setting—including meeting spaces, a kitchen and a conference room that anyone with a membership can reserve. High ceilings, contemporary lighting features and lots of natural light from the large windows and garage doors provide the perfect space to spring forth new ideas. Garage doors, automobile signs and other characteristic features of the building have remained, and old doors, counter tops and lighting fixtures have been refurbished and reused in the new space.
