Emoji Hour at Ivar's Whalemaker Lounge
posted August 3, 2013 12:17 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed August 7 at 7:30 PM, Whalemaker Lounge at Ivar's
401 Northeast Northlake Way, Seattle, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's meet up at Ivar's Whalemaker Lounge to hang out and enjoy the view of Lake Union! Oh, and remember to bring your emoji.
I'm visiting Seattle and wanted to catch up with grouse, who suggested we hold a more general meetup. I have booked Ivars for Wednesday and can adjust the start time as needed.

Why Ivar's? It's awesome, and Mefites met up at Ivar's last September.

Hokay.

I think I can do this one.

I should be able to make it as well.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 9:22 AM on August 5, 2013


I may drift in around 8-ish. No guarantees, but it'd be nice.
posted by ChrisR at 12:21 PM on August 5, 2013


I may or may not make it, but THANK GOD you just straight up picked a time and place.

Seriously, I usually don't even make it to the point in IRL of the event being scheduled, because it's nothing but, "my father's in town and my friends are coming in from Spain and blah blah blah...".

Gods speed to you my decisive MeFite. I will try to make it.

Kinda conflicts with my aikido class, if I'm too pooped to do that I'll probably come along!

Also what lattiboy said.

Yay! Thanks; I wasn't sure how such an autocratic choice would go over. I'm excited to meet everyone who can make it :-)
posted by honest knave at 11:00 PM on August 5, 2013


Another +1 for benevolent dictatorship. I actually might make this one, though it depends on my son's fever being under control (pretty sure it will be).
posted by rouftop at 11:31 PM on August 6, 2013


Despite Slarty's lovely callout in the Big Hug thread, I'm not going to be able to make it. Which sucks.

Have a good time y'all!

Looking good for actually making this one.

You island folk will be missed, though.

I may make an appearance. How long does it take to swim there from SLU? Seems preferable to traffic
posted by qxntpqbbbqxl at 10:29 AM on August 7, 2013


Alright, I'm coming. Won't be there until around 8, but I will be there. Also, another MeFite (and SO of MeFite) are very possible. Just an FYI for table getting early birds.

Son #1 doing better, but son #2 has caught the bug. May not make it after all.

😞 (U+1F61E :disappointed:)

About to head up.

Reference pic for referencing.
posted by Artw at 6:12 PM on August 7, 2013


Already? Fuck, what happens if Artw gets there before I do? This aggression cannot stand.
posted by Errant at 6:16 PM on August 7, 2013


I am on my way too and hope to arrive spot on. I booked space for 10. Reference pic here.
posted by honest knave at 6:59 PM on August 7, 2013


Did you confirm that the space is at the bar, rather than the restaurant?

I hope we can sit outside today because it is incredibly nice.

I'm here. Parking is...challenging. What is the name on the reservation?
posted by Errant at 7:06 PM on August 7, 2013


I'm guessing it's under honest knave's real name? (On his profile page.)
posted by grouse at 7:09 PM on August 7, 2013


I'm on my way, should arrive in 10 min–15 min.
posted by grouse at 7:11 PM on August 7, 2013


In a miraculous turn of events, son #2 fell asleep early! I'm in the car about to head over from north seattle.
posted by rouftop at 7:12 PM on August 7, 2013


Checked in under honest knave's meat name, should only be a few minutes.
posted by Errant at 7:14 PM on August 7, 2013


Leaving. Be there in 20, traffic allowing
posted by lattiboy at 7:27 PM on August 7, 2013


Walk in, go straight until you're almost entering a back banquet room, go down the ramp on the left, you'll see some roguish prime what be ourselves.
posted by Errant at 7:28 PM on August 7, 2013


Reservation confusion. Now have a table in the whalemaker lounge, back right by the windows, with a mefi sign.
posted by honest knave at 7:37 PM on August 7, 2013


Ok, I am here - not seeing a sign.
posted by Artw at 7:39 PM on August 7, 2013


Ditto
posted by rouftop at 7:42 PM on August 7, 2013


We now have a handmade sign.
posted by MoonOrb at 7:44 PM on August 7, 2013


Found art at least. We're at the right side of the bar. Help!
posted by rouftop at 7:45 PM on August 7, 2013


Found them! Technically I would argue this is not the lounge.
posted by Artw at 7:58 PM on August 7, 2013


Ok kids are asleep. I'm on my way. Time how long it takes me to get there, this is literally the closest meet up to me ever. Ready... mark.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 8:14 PM on August 7, 2013


...and I'm here. Where da nerds at?
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 8:23 PM on August 7, 2013


I think we are progressing to the Pacific Inn.
posted by Artw at 9:32 PM on August 7, 2013


Have fun at the Pacific Inn! I think I am done for the night. Good meetup. Enjoyed the Tat-hattans. Thanks for organizing, honest knave.

Good times, thanks honest knave!

Great night!
posted by Artw at 11:47 PM on August 7, 2013


I had a great time. Thanks everyone for a fab evening!

(Also, fascinated that three of us happened to grow up near the same town in central PA)

Last one.

Oh also, did anyone happen to pick up the envelope with "Metafilter" written on it. It has a bunch of stickers in it that I need.
posted by honest knave at 8:45 AM on August 8, 2013


Last one.

An unchallenged record.
posted by Artw at 9:08 AM on August 8, 2013


Boy was I lit. Fun ride home on the bike.

Just wanted to point out for anyone who missed it: ChrisR (whom I'd never met) and I discovered our kids are friends with each other and in fact my wife and son had been to his son's birthday party.
