Thu January 3 at 7:00 PM, Taco Mamacita
109 N Market St, Chattanooga, TN, USA (Map & Directions)
We're New York mefites visiting for the holidays! We'll be staying in Chattanooga from Jan. 2-4, and we'd like to meet the locals. Let's get together on the evening of the 2nd or 3rd. Suggestions for venues welcome. (Vegan friendly preferred.)

I can probably make it from Knoxville-ish but can't help with a venue.

Oh, no-- I'm on call that week, so I won't be able to travel. Have fun, though!

Cool, I'm in. I haven't been, but Sluggo's has a pretty good reputation.

I'm in if it's the 3rd.

I think Sluggo's is one of the only full-on vegan/vegatarian places open for dinner. It's fine (I don't eat meat, but it's a little too crunchy-granola for my preferences if I were picking someplace solely for me) -- the food is better than the ambiance. I've been told (and HappyCow.net agrees) that Taco Mamacita has a separate vegan menu, but I don't see it on the web site. If so, that might be a fun choice. I've emailed them to see if they can provide a vegan menu for ocherdraco to peruse. More news as it happens.

Yay! And is there a day that y'all prefer? Either one works for us.

I'm in, also.

Since you can never have too much Cheese (let alone the Wrong Kind), I second the 3rd.

Okay, the third it is. Yay!

And I've updated the post with the date and the address for Taco Mamacita. If that turns out to not work, we can change it, but it looks great to me!

Hey y'all! We're looking forward to seeing you later this week. Happy New Year!
posted by ocherdraco at 6:56 AM on January 1, 2013


Happy New Year! I just wanted to let you know that there's an outside chance my client session might run a teeny bit long, so it could be 7:15p by the time I get there. But don't doubt my commitment -- nothing short of pneumonia or a blizzard will keep me away.

isawthat & workerant, are you still coming? I'm not seeing you in the "attending" column. I hope we'll see you!

Thanks for the heads up! We'll be seeing you!
posted by ocherdraco at 8:04 AM on January 2, 2013


Glad to see we're still on. I'll call isawthat and remind him to come.

We arrived this afternoon, after a stop at Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, and headed directly to Sluggo's, where we had a delicious lunch. Since then we've walked around near the waterfront, had beer at the Hair of the Dog, and more beer at Terminal Brew House. I had a Moon Pie, and multiple conversations with friendly shuttle bus drivers. Tomorrow we will See Ruby Falls, the incline railway and the Hunter Museum before we meet up with y'all. Yay!

See you in an hour or so.

Whomever gets there first should probably tell them to make the table for Metafilter, unless you all think you can pronounce "ocherdraco" correctly the first time. I'm not sure I can. :-)
posted by The Wrong Kind of Cheese at 3:09 PM on January 3, 2013


We're waiting at the bar, and have "Metafilter" down for a party of 7. We're sitting at the corner of the bar for now.
posted by ocherdraco at 3:40 PM on January 3, 2013


We are at a big table near the back. Ask the hostess for the Metafilter table.

That was amazing. I <3 Chattanooga mefites.

It was great to meet you. Hope to see you again soon.

We <3 you, too.

We made it to Illinois safe and sound. Happy New Year!

I had so much fun with all of you last night! I'll get those pictures up (somewhere, somehow) this weekend. Glad you guys got to Illinois safely -- travel well on the way home, too!
