Wed August 25 at 6:00 PM, Farmers Market
6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm going into the hospital on Aug. 30 and will be out of commission for awhile, so would love to get together at Farmers Market after work with my Mefi peeps (or, as my boyfriend refers to you, "my imaginary friends from the ChattyWeb") before then.
I'll probably get there around 6:00, so come one, come all... the Market's open till 9:00, I believe.

Let's meet at the tables between Loteria Grill and the crepe place.

Awesome! (The meetup idea - not the cancer. Down with cancer.)

Count me in for any of those dates.

(And, if anyone has any interest and doesn't find it too boorish, I would love to discuss my half-baked legal theory regarding how to win the same-sex marriage case that I didn't want to put in print in the recent Prop 8 thread.)

I should also be available for those dates. My first meetup!

Now what should I wear?

Yay. Farmer's Market meetup! I am totally down. I've missed the last several, but will probably be able to make this one.

'After work' for me on Wednesday is 8, but the Farmer's Market is literally on the way home so I'll swing by if y'all still seem to be there. Thursday or Tuesday work for me too.

It must have been an interesting experience for your boyfriend, shaking this imaginary friend's hand. =)

Heh. I keep reminding him, "you've MET some of these people! They've helped us move furniture!"

I will *totally* raise a glass to your good health! I should be able to make it any day, but if you decide on Wednesday, Chris is out. (writer's group)

I would really like to be there - I'll throw a maybe in the hat.

I am SO there.

Count me in as another maybe (or more like a "hopefully," assuming it's Wednesday). I am all for raising a glass to kicking cancer in the ass!

Sounds like a plan. Count me in.

We're off in the midwest visiting family so I'll just propose my toast now: Fuck cancer!

Mr. F and I are tentatively in; I work until 6 in Venice and have to make a stop before I can do anything else.

Okay, I'm going to go ahead and confirm this for Wed. the 25th (sorry Chris won't be able to make it, space kitty!).

I'd love to be there, and I think I can make it.

I have been asked by my boyfriend to clarify that he has only once referred to you all as imaginary.

I had so much fun at my first meetup 2 years ago (so much so, I moved closer to The Roost), it's probably time to attend the 2nd.

That, and I love that crepe place.

'Sup! We're totally in! Not so sure about this IRL subsite bullshit, but we'll be there.

So excited to see you all!!

Would be convenient to anyone to give me a lift from USC?
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 9:21 PM on August 24, 2010


I'm definitely in, should be able to get there sometime in the 7:30-8:00 range.

I just saw this now. I'm trying hard to re-arrange things to be there later today but I'm not certain yet whether it will be possible. I'm doin' my best.

I appear to have grossly overestimated how long it would take me to go crosstown and am now wandering the market aimlessly. If you see a chick in a purple checked shirt with really bright pink hair, flag me down, woncha?
posted by ApathyGirl at 4:59 PM on August 25, 2010


We are at the tables in front of Loteria. Look for pink hair and a pregnant woman.

Man, I feel trapped. There in spirit, spirit-hugging scody, spirit-fucking cancer, spirit-hi-fiving alla y'all, and spirit-napping with my face in a plate of enchiladas. I'll be on my way in t-minus 44 minutes.
posted by carsonb at 7:16 PM on August 25, 2010


my meeting finally ended! hope you guys are still around, i should be there in about 20 minutes
posted by estherbester at 7:16 PM on August 25, 2010


Such an awesome time. Thanks, everyone, for coming out -- it was so much fun. And CANCER BEWARE! I have the ass-kicking good wishes of many awesome Mefites on my side. FEAR ME.

Did anyone else notice that this may have been the first ever meetup that Jason Lee has walked past? Bonnie saw him and his wife and kid go by around 8:30ish.

Actually, Jason Lee walks past every MetaFilter meetup, in every city, every time. But he doesn't read the site.

scody is out of the hospital and at home, doing well. I'm helping coordinate food delivery for her. If any of you are interested who haven't already signed up at Sara's Little Helpers, please feel free to join in!
