Sat September 22 at 6:00 PM, Liam Flynn's
22 W North Ave, Baltimore, MD, USA (Map & Directions)
It's been almost a year since the last meet-up in Baltimore. Let's do it again.
Last November, Sonascope led a brave group of MeFites to the top of Baltimore's Bromo Seltzer Tower. It was a beautiful evening, but I'm not aiming for anything as ambitious as that. Beers at Liam Flynn's on Saturday, September 22, at 6.

Hi, nice idea! I'd have a decent shot of making it to something on either of the next Saturdays.

I can dig it.

Sure, I'm down.

I have a pretty tight schedule the next few weeks, but I'm interested in attending my first ever meetup! Btw, I'll already be at Windup this Wednesday for a High Zero event if any other Mefites are thinking of coming to that.

I'd probably be down for something.

The Windup would probably work for me.
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 3:00 PM on September 16, 2012

Okay, so it looks like The Windup is the place. So, what days work best? Weeknight or weekend?

I'm leaning towards Thursday at, say, 6 or 7?
posted by Dalton at 5:39 PM on September 16, 2012

I could do Thursdays, but would probably be arriving late.
posted by codacorolla at 5:47 PM on September 16, 2012

You guys have a knack for picking the day I have to work late. I nominate any day but Thursday.

I just moved to Baltimore and would love to join a Metafilter meet up. As I am new here and have no friends yet, I am free anytime. :)

Baltimore is notoriously bad for meetups so I'm thrilled there will be one. I'm down with the Windup and the good part is that the other suggestion, Liam Flynn's, is just a few doors down.

Since Thursdays seem to be an issue, what about Wednesday?
posted by josher71 at 6:31 AM on September 17, 2012

Wednesday is good.
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 6:53 AM on September 17, 2012

I can only do weekends, I'm afraid.
posted by Faint of Butt at 9:39 AM on September 17, 2012

I'm definitely out for Wednesday.
posted by codacorolla at 9:52 AM on September 17, 2012

Okay, Liam Flynn's has a happy hour on Saturdays from 4 - 8. I think it'd be better to meet there. That way we don't have to worry about conflicting with some performance or other at The Windup. Also, it sounds like more people are free on the weekend. So, let's say Saturday at 6 at Liam Flynn's?
posted by Dalton at 4:46 PM on September 17, 2012

I could probably do Saturday at 6.
posted by capnsue at 7:25 AM on September 18, 2012

which saturday? the 22nd?
posted by ubiquity at 10:23 AM on September 18, 2012

I'm also definitely out for the 22nd, since I'm going to a friend's wedding on that day.
posted by codacorolla at 10:42 AM on September 18, 2012

Saturday the 22nd.
posted by Dalton at 3:10 PM on September 18, 2012

So, should this be moved to "upcoming" rather than "proposed"?
posted by Nomyte at 7:50 PM on September 18, 2012

We (pineapplecarver and I) could possibly join in for this Saturday, I'm on call so if I don't get called in, i'm in if it's a go.
posted by Asherah at 11:53 AM on September 19, 2012

Damn, I'm going to be in town from the Sept 24th-28th.
posted by larthegreat at 12:05 PM on September 19, 2012

Argh. On my way out of town for the weekend. Could make any other evening, really if it runs past 9.
posted by youcancallmeal at 2:37 AM on September 21, 2012

I have a 5:30 call for a show I'm in 9/22, and it looks like I'll be out of town 9/29. So my next two Saturdays are out. Actually my next three. Crap. Most of October looks much better for me, though, in case it doesn't happen 9/2.
posted by ImproviseOrDie at 4:39 AM on September 21, 2012

Looks like there's a bunch of Mefites who can probably make it to a cocktail hour in 2-3 weeks. Couldn't we make this a monthly thing, some sort of Monthly Mobtown MeFi Meetup? Are we not better than MeFi Portland?
posted by Nomyte at 8:59 AM on September 21, 2012 [4 favorites]

Nomyte, I think that's a great idea. As for folks who are showing up on Saturday, I'll grab a table and put a sign that says "MeFi" on it.
posted by Dalton at 3:20 PM on September 21, 2012

That sounds good to me, Nomyte.
posted by codacorolla at 8:03 AM on September 22, 2012

What happened?
posted by josher71 at 8:26 AM on September 27, 2012

There ended up being five of us there. We relaxed and talked about the topical issues of the day for a couple hours.
posted by Nomyte at 12:21 PM on October 2, 2012

Any plans for a follow up?
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 2:35 PM on October 2, 2012

I wouldn't mind doing something one of the weekends in October.
posted by Nomyte at 3:36 PM on October 2, 2012

I'm good with that. Maybe a weekday this time, for those who don't do weekends well?
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 7:21 PM on October 2, 2012

Feel free to suggest something. I'm driving in from DC and I occasionally work weird hours, so my availability is going to be pretty erratic.
posted by Nomyte at 8:30 AM on October 3, 2012

Perhaps the next boardgame night at the Windup Space?
posted by josher71 at 8:43 AM on October 3, 2012

Nomyte, what works for you?
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 10:10 AM on October 3, 2012

I don't know when those are, but I'm definitely game if I can make it. Sounds like fun.
posted by Nomyte at 10:12 AM on October 3, 2012

The last tuesday of the month, I believe.
posted by josher71 at 12:52 PM on October 3, 2012

I can probably make Tuesday 10/30, as long as it's 7 o'clock or later. Shall we put up a "proposed" announcement?
posted by Nomyte at 2:57 PM on October 3, 2012

Works for me (I think. Most likely.)
posted by ChurchHatesTucker at 3:41 PM on October 3, 2012

Alright, new meetup posted for the end of October. Come one, come all.
