Sat March 22 at 5:00 PM, The Ruck
104 3rd Street, Troy, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Mefites of New York's Capital District, Adirondacks, Hudson Valley, as well as Vermont, Western Mass, Western Connecticut, &c., let's meet up!
I just moved to Troy, NY in December and I'd love to meet any mefites in the area. I propose an afternoon at Troy's best dive bar, The Ruck, on March 22 at 5 in the afternoon. This will be early enough that the bar shouldn't be super crowded.

Aaand I'll start it off. I'm going to say that the weekends of Feb. 15 and March 22 aren't good for me.

How do people feel about the weekend of March 1?
posted by gauche at 6:53 AM on January 23, 2014

I work every other weekend so for me, March 1 is out. I could do the weekend of Feb 22 or of March 8.

I'm in Oneonta, so the Capital District is much more doable than Mass/CT/downstate for me.

March 8 is good for me. Anyone else in the area want to chime in?
posted by gauche at 7:15 PM on January 25, 2014

I'm in Philly on March 8th and February weekends don't work for me at all due to work.

I could do the weekend of March 22. Shiny blue object?

Anyone else?

I'm in, pretty much any day ought to be fine.

Hearing no objections, March 22 it is!

I just updated the event to confirm details. I'll probably bring a board game or two just in case and I'm not opposed to others doing the same.

Dog willing and the scheduling dictates of my job, I'll be there.

Yeah, March 22 should be doable. I'm glad it's late afternoon because I'm probably working Friday night.

Hi everybody, I hate to do this but I've had a thing come up on March 22 that I really can't miss. Any chance I could push it back a week?
posted by gauche at 11:54 AM on February 10, 2014

Sure, the weekend after March 22, which would be March 29, works better for me anyhow. If we can do this March 29, then I am more of a yes than a maybe.

Later works, earlier would work too. This meetup is pretty much constitutes my entire social schedule for the foreseeable future...
posted by The Prawn Reproach at 2:18 PM on February 12, 2014

Thanks! I've memailed everyone who indicated interest and will leave this open another day or so to get more feedback before changing the details. Sorry to pull this.

Can't do March 29, that pesky every-other-weekend work thing.
posted by shiny blue object at 6:46 AM on February 14, 2014

OK, when is this thing now? I am in Rah Cha Cha, but from the Capital District, so I would like to come. But I need to plan the weekend.
posted by oflinkey at 9:29 AM on February 15, 2014

Dudes, are we March 29? Or do we want to try to come to a better consensus where potentially everyone can come?
posted by lakersfan1222 at 7:38 PM on February 28, 2014

I'm sorry. I'm not able to pin down another date that works for me for sure in the next six weeks or two months.

Please folks, go ahead with planning and I'll update the details with whatever date works for you all if someone memails me.

I'm going to be a "maybe" at my own meetup. That's got to be a first.
posted by gauche at 5:32 PM on March 12, 2014

I'm not able to attend tomorrow, but I can do next week I think if anyone is still planning on coming out.
posted by lakersfan1222 at 6:18 AM on March 21, 2014

Stupid Job. Okay, so tomorrow (3/22) is now undoable for me. If anyone is available next weekend (3/29), I can head up that way (I'll be coming from souther Ulster County). Otherwise, Ad Proxium Convivium.
posted by KingEdRa at 4:02 PM on March 21, 2014

Did this ever happen, I wonder? Does anyone want to try again?
