Tue June 5 at 7:00 PM, Ramsi's Café
1293 Bardstown Rd, Louisville, KY, USA (Map & Directions)
People of Louisville: Come meet MetaFilter's griphus and blisterlips (also one another maybe) at Ramsi's!
Blisterlips and I will be in Louisville between June 4th and June 6th visiting (MetaFilter-loving) friends. Let's have a meetup! Suggestions as to the night and place welcome.

I could do either the Monday or Tuesday evening. TONS of options for venue ... what part of town will you be staying in?

I've never met anyone from Metafilter.

Another item off the bucket list. One day closer to death. (I'm flexible on days as well)

I wish you were coming a month earlier! In two weeks I become a San Francisco Mefite. Have a good time!

I've been told I'll be staying in the Highlands.

Perfect - that's the bohemian/hipster epicenter of Louisville. There's an AWESOME restaurant/bar there called Ramsi's Cafe on the World. There's also, just across the street, a great dive bar called The Back Door (which is notorious for very strong drinks), and an attached arthouse movie theater.

How about 6/4 - Monday night? Would love to meet some local MeFites.

Not to take this thread off topic, as I live in Chicago now, but I lived in Louisville for a year 15 years ago, so happened to click in when I saw Louisville in IRL. I would seriously consider coming down to Ramsi's for dinner, meetup or not. I'm just glad to hear it is still open (I actually already knew it is because my ex, who I lived in Louisville with, was down there recently and was pleased to find that it lived up to his memory's hype.) and beloved by at least one MeFite.

I will mention Ramsi's/Back Door/etc. to our hosts. Everyone involved has some sort of dietary constraint, so we (as in my girlfriend and friends) need to work around that.

Ramsi's is one of the better places in town to deal with that. (Except maybe gluten, I'm not sure if they do gluten free, but they're very Vegan friendly.)

Is this a done deal, even if not Ramsi's? I wanna make sure my wife doesn't reschedule me

Well, we are definitely going to be at a Louisville bar one of those nights. Just have to sort out which night. I know they had something that wasn't a bar planned for us one of those nights, so let me find out which night that was.

(If I use the word "night" two more times, I get a free sub.)

Ramsi's should have no problem with gluten-free, if that's a factor - they've got a gluten-free chapati bread you can get any sandwich on, and sandwiches are really just a small part of the menu. I might be there but it's my first day at a new job, so it'll be a day-of call.

Okay, let's make it the evening of Tuesday the 5th starting at about 7:00 PM at Ramsi's. I think we're going to grab something to eat on our own beforehand, but don't let that stop the rest of y'all.
posted by griphus at 8:14 PM on May 28, 2012

Not sure if I can make it--I might be out of town that evening--but I'll do my damndest to be there. If people end up going for drinks or something after dinner, I could likely do that; I'll be back in town about 9 or so, I think.

Either way, though, have fun! Louisville MeFites, show 'em a good time!

Griphus and BlisterLips: have a blast! Tell all your friends about how great we are here!

To anyone showing up, we're inside in the room to the right of the entrance.

Griphus and Blisterlips and JBickers, it was nice to meet ya'll.

Uhh, what was the other guy's handle? I done forgot.

Great meeting y'all as well. He's Mothra Pisces.
