Palo Alto meetup!

Sat September 12 at 3:00 PM, Antonio's Nut House
321 California Ave, Palo Alto, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Hello Bay Area Mefites! I have just moved to the area and Internet Fraud Detective Squad, Station Number 9 will be visiting for a few days. We would like to meet some of you! UPDATED DETAILS: Saturday, 9/12, 3pm-a while later, Antonio's Nut House in Palo Alto.
I have confirmed the meetup for Saturday afternoon, 3pm until later, Antonio's Nut House.

We will be around for a few hours, so those who could only come in early evening should definitely show up! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Constraints:
-- I don't know any places around here, but:
-- Preference for venue: sit around and drink beer, unstructured seating (easy to mix), not too loud.
-- Must be accessible from Stanford (no car but willing to be intrepid).

I don't know when people will be available! Daytime Saturday might be a good starting point for negotiations, but we are flexible as to day and time.

Looking forward to hearing from y'all.

Welcome! I'd love to get drinks and finally meet you! I'm not familiar with Palo Alto bars so I'll leave the suggestions to others.

In a perfectly lovely turn of events, I'll be in the Palo Alto area this weekend for a family get-together and would love to join you all! Saturday daytime works best for me but I'm not exactly sure what time yet. I could probably make anything work but I'll comment again when I find out more detail about my schedule, if we haven't already settled on something. Yay!

I'd love to meet up with you all if the schedule works out, but most of my Saturday afternoon is blocked out.

I'd love to come, but my Saturday days are always booked until 5-ish (6-ish, if you don't want me showing up somewhere all sweaty and still in LARP garb). If the meetup runs into the evening, I'm in.

Probably the best place that fits the bill for casual seating is Antonio's Nut House on California Ave.. We've had metopes there before. Palo Alto has been losing a lot of its less fancy bars and restaurants lately but the Nut House is always a good bet for larger groups.

I'm flexible schedule wise, looking forward to it.

Anyway, welcome to the 'hood, grobstein.

OK, looks like I'll be free all afternoon, and I'd just need to leave by 7ish - so anytime before then works great for me!

Any day other than Saturday would make me a sad panda.

Saturday afternoon would work well for me too, anytime before 7.

You know what? Forget Lovecraft- I think I might actually dedicate my life to living like an Edward Gorey character.

Briefly?

The Dutch Goose is great but a little further away. If it's the afternoon we could probably snag a table or two outside at the Rose & Crown which has a good beer selection.

Hype taken.

You are now carrying:
  No tea
  Hype
  A dilapidated dressing gown (being worn)
  A thing that your aunt gave you that you don't know what it is

We are in the back at the long table by the pool tables.

We've moved outside, at the tables out front.

We're still here! If you're thinking about showing up, do!
posted by Going To Maine at 6:14 PM on September 12, 2015


Okay people: If you've left the Nut House, post the new destination soon, because I've now fed and retrieved the hellhound, and the two of us are about to get in the car and head back over there.
posted by tangerine at 6:44 PM on September 12, 2015


We are still out here, right outside!

I couldn't make it, but hear that my delegate had a lovely time. It smells like there was a dog present.
