Cheese and Booze in the OC

Sun February 9 at 5:00 PM, Knafeh Cafe
2941 West Ball Road, Anaheim, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
After the LA meetup recently I have decided to have another go at organizing an OC/South LA meetup. And what's better for a meet up than cheese! I want to try Knafeh (A near eastern cheese pastry, deep fried with syrup and covered with pistachios) and Anaheim's Knafeh Cafe seems like a good place to give it a shot. I figure we could start off these for cheese and hit some nearby bar for drinks after. Let me know if metafilter is interested before I hit the place on my lonesome. Ok, the place is listed above, and we're on for February 9th, at 5 PM at 2941 W Ball Rd Anaheim, CA 92804! Hope to see you all there!

That would be a good name for the meetup.

Should we just start throwing out date/time ideas? I'm generally free most evenings except Thursdays. What'd you have in mind?

I'd like Sunday or Monday if possible, as those are my days off. 8D

Sundays or Monday evenings would work for me.

I mean anytime on Sunday, but only Monday evenings would work for me.

Anytime Sunday or Monday evening works for me. Should we just pick a day and time and switch this over from proposed to scheduled? Might get some more interest once it's finalized.

Ok, how about 5 pm on Feb 9th?

5PM on Feb 9th works beautifully for me.

Works for me as well.

Great! Will change!

According to google this is within 5 minutes of where I live so I should be able to make it.

In that case, Gooch, have any suggestions on where to go for drinks afterwards?

On Feb 9th afternoon I'll be in Long Beach. I don't know how long I'll be in LB, so I'm putting myself down as a 'maybe' for now.

Haven't been to a lot of bars right in the area but a quick glance at yelp makes it appear there are quite a few options

Bit of a trek for me, but will see if I can make it out on "a school night." ;)

What samthemander said. Great idea, though!

Looking forward to trying these cheesy pastries out! See everyone in a few hours.

Unfortunately, some last minute issues are going to prevent me from attending. Thank you for planning this bswinburn and hopefully will be able to make the next one.

Me too Arbac, see you there!

I'll be in Jeans and a black leather jacket. Mrs. Arbac is in Jeans, white top, and dark green sweatshirt.

I'm wearing blue/green cords and a blue shirt. And I'm leaving now!

I'll be wearing a black shirt and grey hoodie. I'll be there before six

I want to thank everyone for making it and refurbishing my dented belief that an OC meetup could ever happen.

I especially want to thank Deoridhe for making the longest drive!

The cheese was melty and sweet and oh-so-good and all you people who didn't show really missed out!

It was a great meetup, good to see some old and new faces. Good sweets and coffee.

Good to see everyone, and I think next time I should totally get presents for making the longest drive. ;)

That was delicious! bswinburn, thanks for organizing it!
