Fri September 24 at 8:00 PM, In de blaauwe Hande
Achter de Hoofdwacht 3, 6511 Nijmegen, The Netherlands (Map & Directions)
Let's try this again: den Bosch, this Friday (24.09), 20:00?
My assignment is ending this week so I figured another meetup would be a good end to the trip. What say ye? The venue is up for discussion.

Of those, den Bosch is most convenient for me coming from Nijmegen.

Nobody else has spoken up, so den Bosch it is. I don't know the city though so you'd have to tell me where.
posted by geckoinpdx at 12:42 AM on September 23, 2010

Er, I don't know the city at all, either!

I'll ask around at the office today.

Den Bosch works best for me as well, but I'm from Nijmegen as well. Would that be an option?

Nijmegen as opposed to den Bosch, you mean?
posted by geckoinpdx at 5:00 AM on September 23, 2010

Exactly. It would involve a bit more traveling for you, though.

(And apologies: I'm at work so I had to keep it short and, apparently, unclear and badly worded.)

FWIW, I'm totally happy to do this all in Nijmegen and save myself the travel. geckoinpdx, how would that be for you? Are there others out there lurking who might show up? Jouke?

We could do Cafe Jos, Cafe Samson, in de Blauwe Hand... all decently walkable from Centraal Station, I should think.

Works for me. I'll confirm now.
posted by geckoinpdx at 5:46 AM on September 23, 2010

I had the date mixed up in the proposal; to be clear this was for tomorrow, Friday the 24th, not tonight. Unless all concerned want to meet tonight, which will work too I guess.

Tonight is not so good for me, tomorrow is perfect. Knile's choice of pubs is exellent, so no complaints there. How about starting of in in de Blaauwe Hand?

BTW how does this sort of thing usually work? Are we supposed to wear our mefi t-shirts? Because I don't own one and it's probably too late to order...

In de Blaauwe Hand tomorrow night at 8, great. Walking directions from Centraal

How to meet up is a good question. I've done a fair amount of meeting up with strangers in the past few weeks, and it's often pretty easy to pick out the bewildered-looking alone person. I am NOT the fellow who shows up in the top Google Image Search hits for my username... more details to come, or you can sleuth on your own ;-)

I'll make it easy for both of you; I'll have my MeFi shirt (standard blue version) for Sourisnoire and Archie McPhee hat for knile.

Google was no help, but your flickr stream proved useful. I think.

In the mean time, look out for a 6'2 bald guy trying hard to look bewildered.
posted by Sourisnoire at 7:04 AM on September 23, 2010

Oh, yes, that is linked from me profile page, isn't it? How handy.

I look forward to seeing your(pl.) bewilderment and hat.

gecko, can you edit the map to reflect in de Blauwe Hande? I don't know how these things work...

Dinner took longer than expected, I'll be late. On my way though.
posted by geckoinpdx at 10:02 AM on September 24, 2010

OK looks like I have to change trains at Den Bosch so I won't be there till closer to 21:00.
