It's Been A Long Time Asheville

Sun August 27 at 4:00 PM, Salvage Station
468 Riverside Dr, Asheville, NC, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's have a meetup! How about a Sunday afternoon / evening at the Salvage Station?
It's big and low key, kid friendly for those who want to bring them, there's a full bar, decent food, plenty of parking and you don't need a membership. I will get there a little early, snag us a picnic table out in the middle somewhere and put up a blue Metafilter sign. If it rains, look for a table under a roof - in the giant PBR can ideally.

I'm leaving our fair city in September for a year and it's been way too long since we had an Asheville mefi meetup - let's do this thing! Looking forward to it!

Either one works for me. I'll be coming in from East TN.

would for sure be into it- I expect to be in the midst of eclipse preparations on the 20th- lets do the 27th

I would love to make it; either day works but the 27th might be better. Historically I haven't been able to make a meetup yet, so put me down as definitely maybe, and don't worry about me when choosing a date.

I'm up near Boone, but we come to Asheville every month or two, so maybe.

OK! I'm calling it for the 27th and moving this from the realm of proposed to the realm of positive! Looking forward to it y'all it's been way too long.

Yeah, we tried the year it rained every day. I'm in. Kids ok? They are well behaved and really funny. Plus they read MF.

Kids are totally fine, the Salvage Station is something of a kid Mecca.

I'll try... 50-50 at this point.

Remember that film The Fugitive? There's a scene where Harrison Ford is being chased through Asheville and escapes into a dam, then that dramatic scene where he jumps off the spillway? That dam is about a half hour from my house, and apparently it's a much faster way to get to Asheville than I-40. Wish I could take that route. ;-)

Last night was board game night and I was asking about the Salvage Station and what it's like. Turns out one guy's band just played there last week, and another guy actually works there. Serendipity. See y'all next Sun. Are you going to have a sign, mygothlaundry, so we can find you?

Never mind. I just reread your info where it says you'll have a big blue Mefite sign.
