Frjtz joke clean up on aisle 7.

An excellent idea. How about Friday the 14th?
posted by gingerbeer at 10:11 PM on December 2, 2012


I'd be down! Has Elixir started their holiday cocktails yet?
posted by polexa at 12:03 AM on December 3, 2012


Friday the 14th competes with the Mythbusters meetup (which I can't make, but still).

Sunday the 16th?

Good point! Yes, the 16th works.

If it's a Sunday could we make it start early enough to accommodate the last CalTrain at 9:15?
posted by Space Coyote at 10:25 AM on December 3, 2012


Another vote for Sunday! (I work 'til late on Friday and Saturday.) Let's do it in the Inner Mission, because that is convenient for ME! (And also other folks.)

Dog-cow friendly venues are preferred.

Reading back, I second Elixir! I can bring the dog-cow and also I used to work there!

Bring the dog-cow!

The dog-cow has agreed to attend on condition that you and rtha are there.
posted by trip and a half at 5:00 PM on December 3, 2012


Sunday the 16th at Elixir (16th/Guerrero, suitably BART-accessible), early enough for some to make the 9:15 CalTrain. Say 5? 6? Any objections to that?

I have another event earlier that afternoon, so will arrive pre-festivated. That's a word, right?

It is now.

Please buy my upcoming book Gingerbeerisms. In stores for Christmas.

Will you be at this meetup to sign copies for us, mr. k?

The earlier, the better says I! 5:00 would be divine.
posted by mostlymartha at 7:54 PM on December 3, 2012 [1 favorite]


Yay, K and mostlyM! The dog-cow is very excited now, and earlier is better for us, too. 5p sounds perfect.
posted by trip and a half at 8:49 PM on December 3, 2012


Yay, dog-cow! Yay, mefites!

(Anybody else thinking of going to dinner/drinks on this Friday with Snarl Furillo)
posted by rtha at 10:20 AM on December 4, 2012


It can be even earlier, if desired.
posted by gingerbeer at 10:26 AM on December 4, 2012


I could also do a bit earlier, gingerbeer. I basically turn into a pumpkin at 8pm on Sundays (especially during this, my work crazytime)
posted by mostlymartha at 8:35 PM on December 4, 2012


So 5:00 on the 16th at Elixir? SOLD!
posted by spitefulcrow at 10:11 AM on December 5, 2012


We're there! If people want to move the start date earlier in the afternoon, go for it. I have another holiday event at another bar in the Mission that goes until 6, so I'll stumble in around then.
posted by gingerbeer at 11:16 AM on December 5, 2012


tentative RSVP here
posted by jander03 at 9:10 PM on December 9, 2012


radiofiance and I are very excited that we are actually moving to SF proper on Saturday, however we may be too exhausted (and/or crying over Ikea directions) on Sunday to come out!
posted by radioamy at 10:55 AM on December 11, 2012


Bring the Ikea directions and we'll provide drunken interpretations of them for you.
posted by gingerbeer at 11:18 AM on December 11, 2012


Drunken improvisational dancing interpretations, even! Wouldn't that make a hell of a "When we first moved to San Francisco..." story?!
posted by rtha at 11:25 AM on December 11, 2012


Now I'm envisioning an Ikea ballet:
"The Waltz of the Rotary Screw Lock Thingy"
"Tab A and Slot B's Tango"
"Lost Piece's Lament"

Sounds like fun
posted by asra at 8:04 AM on December 12, 2012


Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!
posted by gingerbeer at 10:51 AM on December 14, 2012


I'm going to do my best to still make it to my own event but this separated shoulder is making life awfully difficult.
posted by spitefulcrow at 4:00 PM on December 14, 2012


Dude. What the hell did you do?

Also, we can get you straws for your drinks so you won't even have to lift your glass.
posted by rtha at 4:08 PM on December 14, 2012


Oh you know, got hit by a car.

I'll try to back off on the Percocet enough to have a drink or two, or I'll just be drinking water.
posted by spitefulcrow at 6:42 PM on December 14, 2012


Damn spitefulcrow: ouch! Hope you heal fast and feel better soon.

And now I have an ugly and painful eye infection, which involved a super-expensive trip to the ER today, and depleted all monetary resources until payday on Thursday. So if the dog-cow and I can still manage to show up, I hope someone will offer to buy me a drink. Otherwise we'll just say hi.

What a day. Ugh.
posted by trip and a half at 6:47 PM on December 14, 2012


Oh no!

If you're up for the meetup (with or without dogcow) I will stand you as many drinks as you can stand. Feel better!

Fabulous, an SF meetup that I can actually make. I moved to the South Bay a few months ago and excited to meet other MeFites in SF!
posted by so much modern time at 11:02 PM on December 14, 2012


I'll try to be there a little bit after 7.
posted by special-k at 3:30 PM on December 16, 2012


Jaybeans and I are being uncharacteristically punctual. Should be there right around 5, depending on parking.
posted by mostlymartha at 4:43 PM on December 16, 2012


On my way.
posted by spitefulcrow at 5:03 PM on December 16, 2012


We'll probably get there closer to 6, but we're coming.
posted by grapesaresour at 5:04 PM on December 16, 2012


Im a few blocks away at a work meeting. Be there as soon as we finish dinner. Nobody leave.
posted by special-k at 5:37 PM on December 16, 2012


We are on our way shortly from another holiday drink thing, pre-tipsy. Lemme go round up gingerbeer.
posted by rtha at 5:40 PM on December 16, 2012


Afraid we're not going to make it. Between my body fighting the infection and the antibiotics wiping me out I'm exhausted, and getting liquored up -- even on someone else's tab (thanks, rtha!) -- just doesn't seem like the best idea.

Enjoy, and lift one for the feeble, impoverished, one-eyed old man and his faithful companion!
posted by trip and a half at 5:46 PM on December 16, 2012


Get two rounds of gingerbeer.
posted by special-k at 5:46 PM on December 16, 2012


We will drink to your health, and to the dogcow.

We're on the bus from holiday drinking event #1.

What she said, trip. Feel better, and smooches to dogcow, and see you next time.

Heya, we'll be stopping by before our dinner plans. See you in a bit!

This is tonight? Damn, I suck.
posted by mollymayhem at 7:20 PM on December 16, 2012


We're still here! Come by.
posted by gingerbeer at 7:37 PM on December 16, 2012


You do not suck! I object to that!
posted by rtha at 7:37 PM on December 16, 2012 [1 favorite]


Come! We're still here.
posted by special-k at 8:14 PM on December 16, 2012


I would, but it is cold, and my pants are very grumpy. Plus, I have to be up WAY too early to help a friend move an electron microscope that he bought at a garage sale.

I will raise a glass in your direction from over here, though.

This seems like exactly the sort of thing you'd have to do.

I couldn't make it, on account of procrastinating my cookie swap baking until the last minute.

:(

I added the one photo I took for Coldchef.
