Columbia, SC Meetup?
posted September 18, 2012 8:19 PM   RSS

Hey guys, I am new to the area, and was wondering if there were any MeFites in the Columbia, SC area? I'd be really interested in meeting anyone in the area, as I have attended multiple meetups in other cities and have found them to be genuinely awesome. Any feedback would be appreciated!

I live about an hour down I-20 and would definitely come if I could fit it in my schedule (which has so far not been doable. I know there were enough Colubia mefites to have a 10th Anniversary meetup, so perhaps some more local people will chime in with location suggestions and so on.

Oh wow! Usually when I get the IRL memail for an event close to me, it's for events in Asheville! There are at least a few other locals lurking around here.

Anyway, I'm in Columbia and could potentially hang. Daytime on a weekend would be best for me since I have a kid that still needs mom to go to bed most nights.

It's awesome that there are at least a few mefites here! Hopefully a few more chime in ad we can get something off the ground!

I live in Greenville, but I'm game. Daytime on a weekend would be perfect.

I could come as long as it's not the 29th, I'll be in Georgia that weekend.

I relocated to Columbia last year and am also surprised to find Mefites here. Anytime outside the usual M-F 9-5 is good for me. Were you thinking of a hanging out eating/drinking type thing, or an activity type thing? There's a Rothko exhibit in town if anyone is interested in going to that.

Just in case anyone was interested, I will be checking out the Rothko exhibit at the columbia museum of art this sunday since admission is free. Hit me up if you want to meet up and join!

Aww, I am going to the Rothko exhibit on Friday... but mefites are welcome to join my group as well.
