So, how about another Philly meetup?

Sun September 19 at 7:00 PM, Cantina los Caballitos
1651 E Passyunk Ave, Philadelphia, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
The Philly meetup to see ludwig_van's band was excellent but small. It's time for another big one, I think. (Updated: Informal, probably-not-big meetup at Cantina tonight in South Philly.)
I'll start by suggesting a weekday evening at.... South Philly Taproom? Cantina? Not that it has to be in South Philly, I'm just trying to think of places that we've been able to bring our large groups to without great difficulty.

I'd love to make this one, but we're going to be away from the 11th to the 18th. Any chance of making it before or after then? No worries if not - I'll catch the next one. Thanks!

I'm not available the 23rd-28th. Anywhere in South Phily is good for me!

I'm actually going through Philly tomorrow (4th)... anyone up for a quickie Cheesesteak or Pretzel somewhere?

Oh, and if someone is interested in a meet n greet, my digits are in my profile.

I could come from a Monday through Wednesday night (probably). I'm a student in Philly during the week though I would prefer it to not go too late since I'll have to rely on Septa to get anywhere.

Fiddlesticks. If necessary, I could give you a ride. Assuming I can make it.

I'm going to throw out the 19th. Good Bad?
posted by Tomorrowful at 8:29 AM on September 6, 2010

I personally can't make it that day, for this awesome reason.

I am on vacation RIGHT NOW but am up for a meetup whenever and wherever, though if it's right after a work day it would need to be near public transport.

The 19th works for me...
posted by lagreen at 6:17 AM on September 8, 2010

Oh hi everyone, here I am again!

I am up for drinking, meetups, etc... but just to check, Sept 19th is a Sunday evening, i.e. not a weekday evening)... or is it a weekday evening because most people work on Mondays?
posted by polexa at 10:34 AM on September 8, 2010

I've always thought of Sunday as a weekday evening on the basis that you have to get up early in the morning, the way that Friday night is a weekend evening. This could probably be the basis for a borderline-chatfilter question, though.

I'm hopefully down for something this month. Depends, of course, on my wallet, but if where we go is cheaper than City Tap Room, I think we'll be good.

Okay, seems to be 19th-ish. Location suggestions? I'm still quite new to South Philly so if anyone has a contribution it'd be useful.
posted by Tomorrowful at 2:06 PM on September 11, 2010

Okay, enjoy. I'll try to make the next meetup I suppose.
posted by Deathalicious at 1:56 PM on September 12, 2010

I'd like to try to go to this one, so if it's wheelchair accessible it would be nice. I am, however, a big fucking flake in terms of committing to things, so no need for the accessibility dealio if it would cause plan crimpage.

By the way, I will have a Very Special Guest, All The Way From San Francisco, the one and only gingerbeer.
posted by desuetude at 5:47 PM on September 14, 2010

Okay, so I can't come, so worry not about accessibility issues, and have an awesome time.
posted by angrycat at 12:06 PM on September 15, 2010

So, I'm not really qualified to suggest anything in South Philly... but the 19th is only a few days away so should we talk more concretely about where to get together? Ideas?

(sorry you can't come, angrycat)
posted by polexa at 12:20 PM on September 15, 2010

Me too -- will try to be there next time fer sure
posted by angrycat at 6:54 PM on September 15, 2010

Ooops, I will have taken gingerbeer to the airport by then. And yeah, cheap is good.
posted by desuetude at 6:59 PM on September 15, 2010

Ack. Sorry for bailing on the thread I started. That'll teach me to try to organize anything during crunch time at work. Uh... what's cheap around here? *looks around South Philly vaguely*
posted by Tomorrowful at 7:57 PM on September 16, 2010

The menu at Cantina doesn't scream cheap to me, but it does have a wide range of prices, like an $8 chicken burrito to the pricier $16 mole. Also, looks like drinks range from $5 to $7. I've never been there, so I don't know how it would be for a group.
posted by lagreen at 7:32 AM on September 17, 2010

That looks a bit too rich for my blood, right now.
posted by SansPoint at 3:04 AM on September 18, 2010

Okay. If this is still a going concern, I propose Cantina tonight at... uh.... 7pm.
posted by Tomorrowful at 8:47 AM on September 19, 2010

Hey all, did anything happen?
posted by Deathalicious at 10:49 PM on September 20, 2010

Yep! It was the craziest meetup EVER. Tons of drinking, drugs and illicit behavior. Sorry you missed it! Just kidding, it was only me and Tomorrowful, sitting at the bar at Cantina having a nice meal (one drink each ;)) and chat. Hopefully more people will make it to the next one!
