Sat July 14 at 12:00 PM, Karl Strauss
901 S Coast Dr, Costa Mesa, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I enjoyed the LA area meet up I went to recently, but it's in the far North of LA and that cuts out a bunch of the Orange County and South Bay mefis I see out there.

Ok, the time is noon on July 14th.
The place Karl Strauss
901 S Coast Dr Costa Mesa, CA 92626

I'll make a sign to make it easy to find us.

I feel like I said this years ago in a LB/OC meetup thread, but if y'all decide that Pike would be a good place to meet I'm there in a heartbeat.

I say Yay!

And that I can't think of any good places to meet.

In Long Beach Joe Jost's or Gallagher's also seem like they'd be good for a meetup. Congregation is a great place but can get pretty damn crowded on a weekend night.

Although it's up to you all, as I will be in San Jose for work in July. Have fun!

As I'm currently in San Diego, I'm obviously going to press for as far south OC as possible. ;) Beyond that, I'm cool with any place you guys come up with.

We had one at Joe Jost's awhile ago that worked out well. I love congregation but agree that it can get a little crowded. I'm in Irvine, so I'm open toward moving a little more south as well.

Sounds good, I'm in Costa Mesa.

I just saw this, and any Orange County location is great with me. I'm in Anaheim, but I'd be perfectly happy heading down to the south end of the county for a meet-up (it's definitely easier and less stressful to move from one end of Orange County to the other than to go up into Los Angeles).

Ok, it seems like the idea of southern OC is popular. Any ideas for locations down that way?

I'm in San Diego but would also like to come along! Hot Like Your 12V Wire, we might want to consider carpooling.

What about Haven Gastropub? I used to go there in college and it's awesome.

In South OC there's the Auld Dubliner at The District, Karl Strauss, Iron Press (I haven't tried, but it's in SoCo area), and they have a weekly nightly food truck thing (and they sell beer) at OC Fairgrounds on Wednesday.

Karl Strauss is always delicious and tends to have plenty of room mid-week. Never tried any of the other suggestions.
posted by Arbac at 10:30 PM on July 2, 2012

I was assuming people would want to get together on the weekend. We could do midweek to, in fact I know at least one person who that would be easier for. Can I get a quick headcount about who would like weekend and who would like weekday?

Otherwise I'm thinking noon-ish at Karl Strauss on the 14th.

Ok, switched from proposed to actual.

Sorry for the delayed response. I was outa town for the 4th. I'm not sure if I can make Saturday. Weeknights tend to be easier for me since I can stop by after work.

I'll see if I can make Saturday work. Where'd the rest of this thread vanish off too?
posted by Arbac at 11:01 PM on July 6, 2012

I have friends in town that weekend, have fun all :)

hmm...no one is even clicking on Maybe...

Perhaps I shouldn't have set a date so close to Comic Con. If no one else can make it maybe I should fold up tent on this date and give it another try later. Would that work better for everyone?
posted by bswinburn at 10:32 PM on July 9, 2012

Alright. This meet up seems to have fizzled out so I'm pulling out too. I may try again in a month or so.
posted by bswinburn at 12:33 PM on July 12, 2012

Yeah, ComiCon swallows up all possible plans, it seems. Up for trying again in August.
