Northern Delaware Meetup

Wed February 15 at 7:00 PM, Iron Hill Brewery
147 E Main St, Newark, DE, USA (Map & Directions)
Tired of feeling left out by the Philadelphia and Baltimore meetups? It's time Delaware christened a meetup of its very own.
I got some positive response from people I randomly memailed based on their proximity to me, so I'm hoping we could get a large enough group together to merit having a meetup.

I've been wanting to check out 1984. I dunno if anyone else is into retro videogames. I'm pretty much up for anything though, not picky at all.

Maybe something on Main Street in Newark? What would be most meetup friendly?

I don't have any great suggestions for places to go because I don't go to bars very often, but either Wilmington or Newark is ok with me. I'm closer to Wilmington but I can get to Newark no problem.

I would prefer Newark. Perhaps Iron Hill? Or, is Two Stones Pub too far afield? Or, y'know, something that ISN'T centered on beer would be ok, too. 1984 isn't really my thing, but I would probably come, anyhow.

Any thoughts on what date?

I was thinking someplace like Iron Hill or Home Grown - I've heard interesting things about 1984 but it may be a bit busy for our first meetup.

Is a weeknight ok for you folks? Maybe a Thursday night?

I could do a Thursday evening. Iron Hill seems more meet up friendly than Home Grown, but either would work fine with me.

Thursday evenings are good for me as long as it's not the 16th. But Iron Hill sounds good to me.

Any day but Tuesdays is ok with me.

Is this Thursday too soon? Since next Thursday the 16th is out maybe we can do Wed the 15th?

If I don't see any objections I'll set a definite meetup post for Wed the 15th at Iron Hill in Newark.

I can't do Thursdays but If you do another one sometime I'll try to make it.

Wednesday the 15th would be great, I think, for me.
posted by inturnaround at 9:37 PM on February 5, 2012


I'm pretty sure I could do the 15th. Generally, Wednesday is not ideal for me, but every once in a while is ok.
posted by JMOZ at 4:33 AM on February 6, 2012


the 15th would be good for me too

I just found out I have to be at a school function Wednesday night until about 7pm, which means I won't be able to be at Iron Hill until 7:30-7:45ish. Forgive me!

Also, would the first person to arrive at Iron Hill just give the hostess the name Metafilter group/party so we can find eachother? Thanks!

So should we just push it back to 7:30? I certainly don't want to miss 25% of the potential table. :)
posted by inturnaround at 10:34 AM on February 14, 2012


Just let me know if you push it back because I was planning to drive straight to Newark from work.
posted by interplanetjanet at 5:55 AM on February 15, 2012


I can get there at 7:15 or 7:30, depending what people prefer.
posted by JMOZ at 12:06 PM on February 15, 2012


Also, I'm me-mailing acetonic since he might have stopped reading this?
posted by JMOZ at 12:12 PM on February 15, 2012


I'm thinking 7:30 is a good idea. That way none of us have to wait too long for the others as you, JMOZ can't get there to 7:15 at the earliest and amelliferae might not make it until 7:45. I say split the difference and make it 7:30. That's when I'll show up. I'll memail interplanetjanet to let her know.

Ugh, I'm sorry, guys. Something came up and I can't make it tonight. Please don't let this be the last one. It's fun to have something just for Delaware.
posted by inturnaround at 1:00 PM on February 15, 2012


I can there around 7:30. It gives me a chance to go home and feed the cat.
posted by interplanetjanet at 1:23 PM on February 15, 2012


I'm at a table at the bar area. I'm the guy with the shaved head and beard. Hopefully, I'm not drinking alone on a Wednesday night.

Last night's meetup was a success! Hope to see a few more of you there next time.

It was a fun time! A few more people next time would be great.
