Ooh, the bar menu looks tasty.

It is tasty, and the place has lots of room and a great atmosphere. I cannot vouch for the mixed drinks, though.
posted by the young rope-rider at 5:54 AM on February 6, 2013


The mixed drinks are very good. (I usually order off their cocktail menu.)

Sometimes I go to the bar side because I like the grilled cheese and tomato soup better than the veg option on the restaurant side.

Yes, happy advanced birthday, (Over) Thinking!

My first-ever MeFi meetup, despite being a member for 10 years. And the meetup has a subtext!

Also the food at F. Farm is AWESOME. Foodies will be happy.

THERE ARE TWO B's.

but the second b is silent

Good, because a scrub can't get no love from me. A Scrubb, on the other hand, is eligible for moderate amounts of love, affection, and/or politeness as the situation dictates.

That goes for everyone who doesn't hang out of the passenger's side of their best friend's ride trying to holler at me, BTW

I'm going to be in town for a few days and looking for a way to assuage pre-interview anxiety. So if out-of-towners are welcome, I'm in.

We welcome out-of-towners!

Great spot. This is in the crook of my neck of the woods.

oh hey, practice was rescheduled to Friday, right before our show.

Looks like I'm not going to make it to Flatbush tonight - had to leave Loki at the vet yesterday evening so they can run a bunch of tests today and get him stabilized, so unless they for some reason need to keep him a day longer I'll need to go home after work so I can get to the vet before they close at 8.
posted by oh yeah! at 4:57 AM on February 13, 2013


I can probably come but kinda late - think you'll still be there at 9 or 9:30?
posted by (Over) Thinking at 12:44 PM on February 13, 2013


Yes!
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:57 PM on February 13, 2013


Also, sorry oh yeah!
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:58 PM on February 13, 2013


I'm also out - I seem to be coming down with some kind of creeping ick and am going to chill and see if I can make it go away.

In the bar half, the door to the left of the giant FARM sign, in the back room in the near right corner. I'm wearing a sweater!
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:22 PM on February 13, 2013


Two of us are here!
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:23 PM on February 13, 2013


I will also be a smidge late - work emergency
posted by eustacescrubb at 3:59 PM on February 13, 2013


I will likely be there around 8:00. Yay! My first Metafilter meetup!

If you're still there like 10p I'd like to wander in.
posted by grobstein at 4:16 PM on February 13, 2013


Be there in 40 mins!
posted by mlle valentine at 5:34 PM on February 13, 2013


Last minute thing came up, sorry to miss out. =(
posted by Eideteker at 6:39 PM on February 13, 2013


Oh hey grobstein, we were still there but a bit tipsy and not checking our phones, I think.

Speaking of, I realized this morning that I didn't come to the bar with cash so there's no way I put in for my drink :(

So if anyone feels like they put in too much, let me know, and I'll get it back to you (I owed approximately $10.40 (including tip and such))

Love you all, it was one of the best meetups yet I think
