Who's up for a lunch meetup next week?
Good, because we're meeting up for lunch on Wednesday, the 23rd at 12:35ish.

Locos Locos is the destination.
Pretty good Mexican food close by.

Well shit.

Is dersins out-of-sync with PDX Metafilter, or is PDX Metafilter out of sync with dersins?!

My class schedule this term leaves pretty much no time for lunches, alas (and the only day I could do would probably be Tuesdays anyway).

I'm on campus monday-thursday mornings and tuesday-thursday evenings. I might be able to do lunch, but alas, I can't next week.

I'm available ALL THE TIME until I get a job.

ALL THE TIME.

I'm gonna play Skyrim now.

Christing fuck--how many of us are taking classes at PSU?
posted by dersins at 11:34 AM on January 16, 2013


I'm getting a masters in MetaFiltration, how about you?
posted by Secretariat at 11:46 AM on January 16, 2013


Unfortunately (fortunately?), I'm getting an even more useless degree than that!
posted by dersins at 11:47 AM on January 16, 2013


Something something journey more valuable than destination? And make stops along the road for lunch with mefites.

I'm getting my masters in MetaFiltration at my job, while taking classes at PSU for something useful.
posted by Lutoslawski at 12:13 PM on January 16, 2013


In fact, it might be the first useful thing I've ever done.

Also Christing Fuck is an incredible phrase and I will steal that.
posted by Lutoslawski at 12:14 PM on January 16, 2013


I'm kind of hung up on this phrase YOLO SWAGLOCK right now.

My M-W-F calc class gets out at 12:35 and my science class starts at 2:00.
Does this fit with anyone else's schedule?

I am a slowbie and so I am at PCC for another year+ getting my prereqs sorted out.
posted by curious nu at 1:17 PM on January 16, 2013


I'm such a slowbie that I don't even know what a slowbie is. Do you mean you're being smart and taking classes for less money? Seems like a good idea.

I'm good for whenevs.

Just a thought, for future options, we could do brunch on Tuesday or Thursday (my class is at noon). There's a good cafe a couple blocks off campus that serves Illy.
posted by nickthetourist at 8:25 PM on January 16, 2013


My classes are T & TH from 2 - 6:30 and I'm currently unemployed, so I can actually make pretty much anything work.
posted by dersins at 9:30 PM on January 16, 2013


Should we go to Locos Locos? It's across the street from Cramer.
posted by nickthetourist at 8:01 AM on January 17, 2013


I haven't been to Locos Locos before, but I would totally go there next week Wednesday or Friday after 12:35. (I actually get out of class an hour before that, but I can just work on some homework or something.)
posted by Secretariat at 2:43 PM on January 17, 2013


Of course you guys all start doing lunch at PSU when I no longer work there.

Locos Locos is ok, its not amazing burritos, but I have had many a lunch from them and they were tasty.

Reviews make it sound mediocre, but cheap. Sounds about right to me!
posted by Secretariat at 6:01 PM on January 17, 2013


I suspect it may depend on what you order. Last time I had a torta. It was good, but I've had better.
posted by nickthetourist at 6:17 PM on January 17, 2013


My wife used to work at PSU and ate many times at Locos locos. She agrees with what appears to be the consensus: She says "Decent. Nothing special. But decent. Cheap, too."

So. Sounds like it's better than dropping cinder blocks on your feet. Which is always a plus.

FWIW, I'd prefer Wed to Fri. Whatever time.

Ive set it for wednesday at 12:45.

Sold!

Oh hey, I can make this.

Oh hey, no I can't. Laaaaaame

Wow, it's like your legs totally just fell dead.
posted by Secretariat at 11:28 AM on January 23, 2013


You joke, but that's exactly what happened
posted by maqsarian at 2:50 PM on January 23, 2013


Well, that IS lame. I can't argue.

I may have sounded complainy at lunch since I wished my burrito had guacamole in it, but all and all I was pleased by the experience. A++ would eat again
posted by Secretariat at 5:19 PM on January 23, 2013


I don't know about A++, but Locos Locos is for sure solidlt in the B - / B range as "totally decent if not particularly interesting."

Which means by PSU-area standards it is exceptionally (and surprisingly) adequate.
posted by dersins at 12:17 AM on January 24, 2013


Ok, not A++. It's just fun to type "A++ would eat again."
