Fri March 23 at 7:00 PM, Good Karma Vegan Cafe
37 S 1st St, San Jose, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
beekept lamented the South Bay's lack of meetups compared with San Francisco so I suggested we hold our own.
The venue is Good Karma Vegan Cafe at 37 South 1st Street, San Jose. They have a nice selection of unusual beers on draft.

Street parking is tough, but the cafe validates for the garages with the Pv symbol [PDF]. I'll be biking from Willow Glen. MeMail if you want to coordinate.

Original proposal so the first 12 replies make some sense: ...beekept is carfree and downtown, so it's close for her. Scheduling's tricky, but we're going to try for a Wednesday or Friday evening. Comment with your vote for March 21st, 23rd, 28th or 30th.

If it's March 30th, we can go way past downtown SJ. (Cesar Chavez Day = a California librarian's day off.)

And I'm more than happy to offer transportation if anyone prefers a ride to walking or public transportation.

If the timing is right, I will represent the East Bay Mefi Chapterâ„¢.

Wednesdays are out for me, and so is the 30th, but if it's the 23rd I might be able to make it.

(I first read the last sentence of the original post as "beekept is carefree," which I hope is also true.)

My perpetual maybe applies here too. :)

Either the 21st or 23rd would work for me! (The 30th, alas, does not, which is a shame because I love that beekept has the day off.)

I should be able to make any of those dates. I definitely like that cafe.

I'm up for any of 'em!

I can't do Fridays, but I'd like to go if it's a Wednesday (any Wednesday, really).

I've tried to make it to a few of the SF ones, but haven't been able to. This sounds fun!

Hmm. I can't do either Wednesday, but I could probably do either Friday.

Like tangerine my brain auto-corrected to "beekept is carefree" which I thought was a lovely thing to say while proposing a meetup.

Wish this'd happened when I lived there. Maybe even with tax season upon me I can make it.
posted by BrotherCaine at 6:27 PM on March 8, 2012

I'd be a first timer and miiiiight make 21st or 23rd!
posted by anateus at 10:40 PM on March 8, 2012

Whee, this will be the closest meetup to my house yet. I can make the 21st or 23rd.

This will be fun! I predict good times. So spoke beekept the carefree.

It's on! I'm 6'3" w/ brown&grey curly hair & I'll be wearing a red Maker Faire t-shirt. No MeFi shirt because the big sizes always sell out too fast. Grrr!
posted by morganw at 10:38 AM on March 23, 2012

I shall be there!
posted by zsazsa at 10:42 AM on March 23, 2012

Can't make it tonight, guess it was just not meant to be. Perhaps another time, my south bay comrades!

Here's that solar eclipse I was talking about:

Also, I would have properly formatted that link but I am still tipsy from the meetup.

Surely this.

Glad I decided to come, it was a treat to meet you guys--and even though zsazsa and I have already met he continues to be a pleasure!

While we're linkifying: The City Museum!
posted by zsazsa at 11:56 PM on March 23, 2012

That was fun! I'm glad I didn't go for a 3rd beer; my tolerance is heck-a low.
Great to meet all of you. I hope we'll do it again-- maybe Dish-Dash in May?

Sorry for the delay getting the pictures up, but there they are!
