Tue July 22 at 7:00 PM, Polite Provisions
4696 30th Street, San Diego, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Big gorgeous city, lots of mefites, and yet we almost never manage to have a successful meetup. Let's make it happen this month!
~* UPDATE: we have a couple folks who aren't available til 9:30/10. shall we bump it to 8pm to make their meeting us more likely, or keep the meetup at 7pm? I am open to either! *~

Tuesday, July 22nd seems like a date at least five of us are available (we can also bump it to July 23rd if that works better for someone). I opted for the delightfully speakeasy-like Polite Provisions, located at the intersection of Adams and 30th in Normal Heights. If you're hungry, you can order next door at Soda & Swine (yum) and they'll bring over the food. Hooray!

I haven't done a meet-up in a decade or so, so perhaps it's time. I also live in University Heights.

Yes please! I live in one of the Heights neighborhoods too.

Me too! I'm in North Park.

South Park, and I'm in like something that rhymes with 'in'!

hooray! so what times/dates work for everyone? weekday evenings are usually best for me.

as for where, if we wanted to grab a drink, Polite Provisions is central on 30th & Adams and has really fun cocktails. you can order from Soda & Swine next door & eat at PP if anybody wants food.

but I am totally flexible if anybody has another rec. so many options!

Maybe the best way to pick a time is to use and pick a bunch of dates that are good for you and then we can all vote.

Mission Valley. Never been to a MeFi meetup before. There was talk of a one around Comic-Con in 2012 that came to nil. July is busy for me but I'll be watching for this! :-)

any of these evenings work for you guys?
(thanks, Mo Nickels!)
posted by changeling at 12:52 PM on June 30, 2014

Sounds fun! I'm busy until mid-month, but I can meet up on the 17th or later.
posted by studioaudience at 6:53 PM on July 1, 2014

I'll be going! Looking forward to it.
posted by Mo Nickels at 10:03 AM on July 11, 2014

The Minotaur and I will be there.

Sounds like there will be enough of us to order a punch bowl. Ya know, if peeps are into that. (I totally am).

I was hoping this would be something I could attend, but with my birthday the next day and moving out of town the following week, things are going to be way too hairy for me to do it, and I couldn't pin my schedule down at all to contribute to deciding on a time or date to avoid all that. Too bad, because I work right down the street and could have easily dropped by after work under normal conditions. Have fun! Finally a SD meetup with more than 4 people! (pending)

I can swing by around nine-thirty, it looks like, and see if anyone's still there. Or any punch.
posted by Performing Without Annette at 11:38 AM on July 19, 2014

ugh, sorry, something came up and I won't be able to come unless you're still there by ten or so. I can stop by and see...
But let's do it again soon!
posted by exceptinsects at 11:14 PM on July 20, 2014

should we bump it a little later to make it more likely? I'll edit the main post so it notifies attendees...
posted by changeling at 1:34 PM on July 21, 2014

Things are looking unlikely for me; our dog just had surgery and someone needs to stay home with him.
posted by studioaudience at 7:13 PM on July 21, 2014

I can be there at 8pm!
posted by illenion at 11:59 PM on July 21, 2014

I'll be there tonight at the original time of 7 p.m. I'll see all y'all there.
posted by Mo Nickels at 11:14 AM on July 22, 2014

Well, we'll be there tonight at 7:30 with bells on and we plan to stay at least until 10, so latecomers don't renege!

Ima lame out, I'm feeling pukey :-(

Hmm, good question. We look like this. I'm quite tall and I'm wearing a black shirt today. (I considered wearing my MetaFilter shirt but thought it might make me "that guy.")

posted by The Minotaur at 6:22 PM on July 22, 2014

this is what I look like! :D pretty similar hair, & I'll wear a long blue skirt, black shirt, knit beanie. I'm aiming for 7:30 as well. hooray!

OMG grant Barrett! I think I met you at a party once!
At Dennis stein's.

Ok well...I am really bad at recognizing people and I didn't want to go up to some random strangers and be like, "are you from the internet?" I looked around but couldn't tell who you all were, sorry! I'll meet up with you next time I promise.
posted by exceptinsects at 10:00 PM on July 22, 2014

We are still here back corner! Come on by!
posted by artlung at 10:06 PM on July 22, 2014

That was great. :-)

Very fun! Glad I finally found you!

Yes! Very cool. Sorry to leave at 9:45 but I had to pick up my family at the Old Globe.
