Stewriffic makes it a trifecta!

Sun September 29 at 5:00 PM, Bar by Madame Tam
320 University Avenue, Palo Alto, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Sunday, September 29, Stewriffic will be back on the Peninsula for another visit. Let's all get together and say hi!
She's staying at a hotel in Redwood Shores, and I'll be picking her up, so let's find a place somewhere between San Carlos and Palo Alto. Definitely open to suggestions. It's a school night, and she'll be on East Coast time, so let's start early, say 5pm.

(And yes, I am aware there is a meetup in SF and a meetup in Berkeley that same weekend, but not on Sunday, so all the SF and East Bay MeFites are welcome to join in. In fact, anyone who makes it to all three meetups that weekend, I will buy you a drink.)

Hey, had a lovely time the last time we did this. I selfishly vote for Palo Alto (suggest Bar by Madame Tam because Pho). In Redwood City I like Martin West (gastropub) which is downtown.

Do we win some kind of prize for most consecutive meetups? I hope so!

Pho or gastropub sounds good with me if Palo Alto is OK.

I've been watching for an East Bay meetup since I loathe driving into SF or to SF.

Not sure if I'll be free for this…but we'll see.

Another vote for Palo Alto.

Welp, time is coming soon. Since I am basically without transport outside Ambrosia, I am game for wherever. But should we set a place?
posted by Stewriffic at 2:49 PM on September 22, 2013

I've been thinking about this too! There seems to be a consensus for Palo Alto. Last time we did Antonio's Nut House, but maybe someplace different this time?

There was a suggestion for the Bar by Madame Tam. Never been there, but happy to give it a try. Other Palo Alto alternatives: Scotty's, The Old Pro, the Wine Room, The Rose & Crown.


Everyone remember to set your DVRs for the final episode of Breaking Bad.

I'm going to see my cousin for lunch, and I'm telling him to have me back to the hotel by like 3. I'll check in and then will be available to do more!

Trifecta! If I'm not too meetupped out, I'll be there!

I've never been to any of the above suggestions, so... they all sound good to me!
posted by zsazsa at 9:15 PM on September 23, 2013

We're driving there no matter what, and I don't know much about good locations around there, so I vote that ambrosia just chooses a place and announces it and then we all show up there!

I'm a weak maybe at this point... I'm not sick, but some family members are at this point and I don't want to infect anyone! :(

I brought back a cold from the east coast. I'm getting over it, but I have no idea how I'll feel by tomorrow. Which is sad, because I'm pretty sure this will be the only nearby meetup in the next 3 years.

OK! I'm here! ambrosia, i'm going to memail you my number. Anytime to come by is fine. Just let me know.
posted by Stewriffic at 1:53 PM on September 29, 2013

Bess and I are on our way now!
posted by Space Coyote at 5:09 PM on September 29, 2013

I'll be there around 6:30.

I assume this totally happened.
posted by Nomyte at 10:13 PM on October 1, 2013

Yes! It happened! It was lovely to see Stewriffic again, and tangerine, Space Coyote and Bess. We missed those who couldn't make it, and agreed to have another meetup in the reasonably near future.

Another meetup in the near future would be great. I'm bummed I missed this one.
