Thu June 5 at 7:00 PM, Original Gravity Public House
66 South 1st Street, San Jose, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
There are a lot of neat new restaurants and bars I've been wanting to try in downtown San Jose, and it would be nice to hang out with some MeFites. How about helping me kill two birds, stone-wise?
A few options (all light rail friendly for non-drivers):

Paper Plane
ISO Beers
Farmer's Union
Cafe Stritch

But after hours of discussion, we'll meet at Original Gravity at 7pm on Thursday June 5th.

Hope you can make it!

Oh my god, Paper Plane looks UH-MAY-ZING.

I would be into Thursday. I have a night class so I wouldn't be able to get there until after 8.

I'm into this! I've heard really good things about Paper Plane. I've been to Original Gravity and Cafe Stritch, and both would be excellent choices. Stritch is pretty big and should have more than enough seating for everyone, though there's often live music that could make conversation difficult. Original Gravity has a really nice selection that caters to beer snobs (high ABV tho, careful!), and plenty of outdoor patio space.

Thursday sounds good, and I was leaning towards Original Gravity anyway because I have been there, and it's pretty good. So I'm gonna confirm it, and anyone else who is lurking or on the fence can join in.

Oh darn it, *this* Thursday. I'll try to swing by after doing some stupid PTO stuff.

Aw, now I feel like a butt for not realizing there's another meetup up in the city on the same day.

Not gonna cancel, but hey, now you all have another option.

Not sure if I'll make it, but OG is great. Dress for the weather - there's a nice beer garden and not much space inside.

My lovely daughter may have infected me with some kind of deathly illness but assuming I am not a pile of snot I will see you all tomorrow, after 8. Post here if you move locations, please!

Can't make it, working this evening. OG and Paper Plane are both great (they're owned by the same people) and they're about 20 steps away from each other so it'll be easy to visit both if you guys want.

ISO beers has an excellent beer fridge and plenty on tap. I have only been there once and it didn't have the same social bar feel that OG does. But definitely worth checking out if you're into beer.

The patio is a bit crowded, so I'm at a table near the front. Yellow shirt, munching fries, drinking a Hell or High Watermelon. You can call me Sam, or tweet at me @sambosambo

Glad you guys could make it out!

As promised, here's the pilot episode of Archer with Archer replaced by a Raptor!
