Meetup in Abu Dhabi
posted January 16, 2013 11:38 AM   RSS

I'm new in town and would love to meet up with any nearby MeFites as I get settled! I don't have anywhere in mind and would really love suggestions if there is the possibility of a meetup.
I work a typical Sunday-Thursday week, so anytime on the weekend suits me just fine.

Does Feb. 1 or 2, or 8 or 9 work?

Anyone out there, er, here?

I lived in Dubai until quite recently, but I just moved unfortunately.

great! I'm happy to come out to Dubai if that's better for you (and others, if there are others?) as long as it's on the weekend.

anyone else?

I'll be back in Abu Dhabi by the 1st of Feb and happy to meet up then. Dubai is not usually feasible for me, unfortunately.

Depends on what we're looking to do. My son will be with me, so it needs to be a kid-friendly venue. Outdoor cafes are good this time of year, generally speaking.

arghhhhh. I have a work commitment on February 9th now. I apologize - I seem to have terrible luck whenever I am scheduling meetups! I always call them and then have trouble with picking dates. I'll cancel this one for now, and we'll try again in a few weeks, if that's alright. thankfully (?), there are only 3 of us :)

bardophile, I'll keep kid-friendly in mind for when we can get together!

There are 4 of us! I'm living in AD until June.

So, what are thoughts about meeting on the 23rd? I'll be out of town for a month after that, and by end of March, temperatures will start to rise, although still not in the uncomfortable zone.
