Thu December 12 at 7:00 PM, The Pickle Shack
256 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
A couple weeks ago at a meetup, I mentioned the Pickle Shack, a new bar that is a collaboration between Dogfish Head and Brooklyn Brine. It seemed like there's some interest in checking it out.
There will be beer and pickles and sandwiches maybe with pickles in them!

I'm picking a date far in advance since it's the day after my classes are over. I can change it if need be, though.

I thought we were waiting on this until unannihilated was back in town. Can we change the venue and go here after thanksgiving?

This is after Thanksgiving.

I've been wanting to go there ever since I first heard about it, but never could find any details on what they served beyond 'pickles and beer'. What other items do they have?
posted by jourman2 at 7:22 AM on November 20, 2013

I haven't been before so not 100% sure of details but I believe it's mainly (vegetarian) sandwiches with various interesting ingredients.

Here's an idea of what it's like: http://parkslopestoop.com/blog/food/lunch-plans-chanterelle-mushroom-egg-sandwich-at-pickle-shack

I didn't check the date. Ignore my previous comment.

Hactar was in one of his drunken stupors.

It's too late to ignore it. We already acknowledged it. You can make it up to all of us later. A round of pickles on Hactar! And then a round of pickles that he purchases for us.

Round pickles!

I appreciate Hactar remembering that I wanted to go. Thank you, Hactar.

It looks like I'll still be out of town recovering so I won't be able to make it. I suppose it's just as well, as I'm still far from being able to eat pickles and sandwiches. Enjoy!

Just to be petty and clear, mlle valentine _did_ remember. That's why she made it for this date. She even told me IRL that's what she was going to do.

Good luck on your recovery! When you're done with that, make another pickle meet up. Unless it turns out to be a horrible place. We'll let you know.

Unannihilated, I did specifically try to make it for a date I thought you could go. If you propose a better date I'm happy to change over.
posted by mlle valentine at 7:23 AM on December 5, 2013

mlle valentine - I know the later date was for my benefit since we initially discussed holding this meet-up at a previous meet-up – so thank you for remembering also.

I just wanted to thank Hactar for his concern about the date since someone else in the thread was bizarrely harping on him for getting it wrong.

I’ll be back in town the week after this meet-up, but right now I’m still so far from eating stuff like pickles that I think you should just keep your date and venue as is and let me know if it's worth visiting later. Thanks for considering changing it. Have fun!

Sounds good. Hope you are up to pickles and such soon!
posted by mlle valentine at 11:11 AM on December 5, 2013

Apologies if you, or anyone else, felt like Hactar was being attacked. It was all light-hearted, but I'll try not to joke around on the internet in the future.


(But actually sad if it was interpreted as malice).

If I am in town I would love to come to this.

ausdemfenster, where have you gone? Come back to town for less malice, more pickles than ever before.
posted by mlle valentine at 1:53 PM on December 6, 2013

Unannihilated, best wishes to a speedy recovery!

I've been in FL having extended sad family medical emergency times. I'm back in town for (hopefully) another week before returning there, so I'd love to stop by and see all you excellent people and eat some pickles before I go. Might also have an abundance of cookies to bring along!
posted by ausdemfenster at 6:29 AM on December 7, 2013

Sorry to hear that, ausdemfenster, I have been in that situation myself. I hope that we can see you!
posted by mlle valentine at 9:16 AM on December 7, 2013

Thank you, computech_apolloniajames. :) I'm getting there surely but slowly.

ausdemfenster, I'm sorry to hear about your family medical emergency and sorry that I'll miss you on your week in town.
posted by unannihilated at 10:01 AM on December 7, 2013

unannihilated, we'll have to be sure to be in town/healthy/free at the same time some day soon! I've got this insanely cute kitten who needs socialization, so I wish you a fast recovery so you can come cuddle her!

Pictures, ausdemsfenster, pictures!

Wow, their menu sounds stunningly delicious! I'm a big flaky maybe for tonight but thanks for posting this.
posted by Salamandrous at 7:04 AM on December 12, 2013

Salamandrous, if it's good we can go back if you can't make tonight. Everyone, I am excited for pickles! Also beer.
posted by mlle valentine at 8:04 AM on December 12, 2013

I am not quite over the sniffles I took a sick day for earlier this week, so, no pickles for me tonight.
posted by oh yeah! at 2:30 PM on December 12, 2013

Might be a little late, but I am ready for pickles!
posted by ausdemfenster at 2:38 PM on December 12, 2013

I'm here. It's a little more restaurant, less bar, but not gonna be an issue.
posted by mlle valentine at 3:58 PM on December 12, 2013

We are on our way. ETA 7:45.

Work crept up on me this week, sorry I can't join you this time.

That was a very fun time, and huge thanks to mlle valentine for organizing! Hope to see you all in 2014.

Yes, had a wonderful time! Good to see so many people make it out.
posted by wintrymix at 7:40 AM on December 13, 2013

That was great! I was also happy to see so many people make it despite the weather.

ausdemfenster, I require this kind of therapy.
