Yet Another Mission Meetup
posted August 9, 2012 7:14 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat August 18 at 7:00 PM, Mission Bar
2695 Mission St, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm doing a "Goodbye To All of That", so let's hang out in the Mission because I'm leaving for the East Coast.
I've skipped the last couple of meetups because of schedule conflicts, but I can't make an excuse if it's one I organize. Plus, the Mission Bar gives us access to all sorts of wonderful foodstuffs.

If we could find you an apartment off of street level would that possibly help change your mind about leaving?

Insert my usual blather about "maybe I have to work, but otherwise I'll be there" here.

Read in Rich Fulcher's voice, "Mee. Likee. YOOOO!"

(i.e., sounds fun. See you there)

Yes! I owe you some drinks.

I think my parents will be in town that weekend, but if I'm not hanging out with aubilemom (and, uh, my dad. I got nothin'.) I'll totes drop by.

Yes! I owe you some drinks.

Or maybe you can help her pack!
posted by sambosambo at 2:20 AM on August 10, 2012

Bring your parents!

I think yes we'll be there.

Hello, I've only lurked on MF so far, but I registered on MF just to post that I'm coming to this since it's like a block away from where I live. See everyone there!

After-party at Noisy Pink Bubbles' house!

Unfortunately, we have a wedding to attend and won't be able to make it.

PS At the bar, how will I distinguish MeFites from the unwashed masses? Is someone going to be wearing / doing something distinctive, for instance?

PPS Is there a way in MF to get notified when someone posts on a thread on which you have posted?
posted by Noisy Pink Bubbles at 7:13 AM on August 10, 2012

Excellent question. Look for the people that look like they're from the Internet. If you're running late, we're probably the largest group.

Alternatively, you could bring some noisy pink bubbles.

You can go up to people and ask if they're from the internet, or if they're friends of Matt's. I've done this; both work. You can also click the SanFrancisco tag and poke around in other meetup threads to see if anyone's posted pictures.

And to see what's happened in threads you've posted in, go to the top of the page and click "recent activity" - this only works if you're logged in, of course, but why would you ever log out? It's cold and scary out there!

But the best thing about being on street level, is that I can complain about having weak leg muscles.

You can spot me by my cloud of gloom and hipster wear.

rtha and I actually have tickets to a show that evening, but maybe we'll show up after, if you all are still drinking.

Whoops. Knew I'd forget something.
posted by rtha at 5:50 PM on August 10, 2012

If I'm there I'm the gal with the floppy (currently red) mohawk. If I'm not there, well, I still have the mohawk, but knowing that won't help you find the mefites.

I may show up with an ulterior motive: I'd love to bestow some fresh rosemary sprigs on y'all. My formerly-well-mannered rosemary plant bush tree has decided to take over the front planter box and it's already trailing on the sidewalk. TODAY THE PLANTER BOX, TOMORROW THE WORLD MWAHAHA! Anyway, if anybody wants a bunch of rosemary, just let me know how many board-feet you can use.
posted by Quietgal at 12:54 PM on August 12, 2012

Literal, actual board feet of rosemary would be awesome. I wonder if it ever actually gets big enough to make usable lumber? Sadly, you can't foist any off on me--I steal it from in front of the house down the block.

When you're ready to forgo your life of crime I'm here for you, molly. Bring a chainsaw.

Also of interest in the Mission this Saturday: the San Francisco Street Food Festival, which is on Folsom between 20th to 26th, from 11am to 7pm.

Now I want an onigiri.

Turns out I'll be out of town. Boo.

Have fun!
posted by potsmokinghippieoverlord at 10:30 PM on August 16, 2012

Hey, are any of you guys still there?
posted by aubilenon at 10:02 PM on August 17, 2012

Not until tomorrow, aubilenon. Though you did freak me out for a second, thinking I missed it.
posted by mollymayhem at 10:05 PM on August 17, 2012

Oh jeez! that explains why there's not a ton of chatter here. I guess I won't head over right now!
posted by aubilenon at 10:20 PM on August 17, 2012

Ugh. Just came home sick from work. Lunch and I are not in agreement. Boo. Looks like I might be missing this one.

If you're aching for my company, and also really wanna see some opera, we're doing the Stern Grove free concert tomorrow. Free opera, outdoors. It'll likely be freezing, but the music will be really nice. I will actually be backstage for the most part, but would love to pop out and say hi to anyone who happens to be there.
posted by mollymayhem at 3:23 PM on August 18, 2012

Things conspired to make me early, so I'll be there as soon as I get my burritoey goodness.
posted by zachlipton at 6:41 PM on August 18, 2012

I'm leaving the house shortly (with my museum piece of a dumbphone, so no further updates from me). If I'm the first one there I'll try to stake out a table. I'll be wearing a blue T-shirt and holding a big bag of rosemary - just follow your nose.
posted by Quietgal at 6:44 PM on August 18, 2012

I'll be wearing a blue T-shirt and not carrying a big bag of rosemary. (Also the shirt will probably be covered up.)

We're fighting over the third booth from the entrance. I somehow ended up in Giants colors today.
posted by loriginedumonde at 7:08 PM on August 18, 2012

We've taken over the first booth on the right! We own this bar!

Okay try #2: Hey, are any of you guys still there?
posted by aubilenon at 9:06 PM on August 18, 2012

Many of us are here!
posted by madcaptenor at 9:23 PM on August 18, 2012

Okay I'm heading over. Don't go away!
