posted June 29, 2014 7:35 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Tue July 15 at 6:00 PM, Molly Malones (Highlands location)
933 Baxter Avenue, Louisville, KY, USA (Map & Directions)
MeFi Meet-Up for MetaFilter's Fifteenth Anniversary!
WHO: Louisville and Kentuckiana MeFites!

WHAT: MetaFilter will celebrate fifteen years of bean-plating on July 14th! It's the week before Forecastle, and therefore the perfect excuse to get together somewhere and drink, eat, and enjoy our fellow MeFites.

WHERE: Molly Malone's, 933 Baxter Ave, Louisville, KY 40204.

WHEN: Tuesday, July 15th, 2014. Cocktails: 6pm - 6:30pm Dining: 7pm - ?

OTHER: Based on response thus far, I'm not doing anything like booking a separate room. We'll just get together and grab a table and some beers. :) Please note that while Molly's does not have an actual plate of beans on the menu, they do offer White Bean Hummus and Black Bean Burgers.

All that said, I just found today out that I'm going to have to work Tuesday evening, so I won't be there (sadface.jpg). If someone else can please take the lead to be the Head MeFite In Charge at the restaurant, getting people together, wearing a MetaFilter t-shirt, and/or otherwise identifying yourself to others as someone who spends far too much time on this web site, I would appreciate it!

Molly's and a board game night sound fantastic!

I could make it on the 12th, but will be out of town the 13th-19th. If it happens to end up being on the 12th, count me in! Otherwise, catch you next time.

I'm in.
I think I can work around any scheduling you do.

I'll call Colin and see how late he typically stays open for the LGS's Board Game night. I haven't been in a while, but believe he usually stays open until 10pm or so.

I'm in if it's Tuesday (15th). Monday doesn't look so good.

An update!

I spoke to Colin, and he says that board game nights during the week he stays open until 8pm. It's only on Saturday nights that he stays open later.

So if we get together for supper at, say, 6pm on the 15th, that wouldn't really give us much time for board games.

We can pick another date, or drop the gaming. What say you?

I am interested in the meetup--pretty flexible with dates and anything (Molly's or wherever, games or no games) sounds fun. Holy Grale especially ;)

mags, I say drop the gaming and have that as a separate meetup another time (excuse to have another!) in which we all just go in dedicated to a quick meal and then hardcore gaming.

So it's Molly Malone's at 6 on Tuesday? Count me in for dinner.

If only this was the Molly's across the hall from my office, I'd lead, but I'm also utter shite in social situations.

Would the St Matthews location be better for anyone else but me and deezil? Sorry if I'm just trying to mess up a good plan.
posted by acorncup at 11:41 AM on July 11, 2014

acorncup, my thought was to pick a central location, one that inconvenienced everyone, so to speak.

That said, if others want to move the event to St. Matthews, I have no objection whatsoever and will update the event accordingly.

Since the notice has went out, I'll head to the other Molly's. I think it will inconvenience me just a touch instead of a lot. I'll just plan one next time so that I can choose somewhere in St. Matts.
posted by deezil at 4:56 AM on July 14, 2014

Just a reminder that the event is tonight! Have fun on my behalf! :)

(Can't believe that the one time I plan an MeFi Meet-up I have to work! Grrar!)

here's me today. Plan accordingly. I'm off to Molly's in the highlands

I was there and now I'm home. We'll try it again next time!
posted by deezil at 5:00 PM on July 15, 2014

I'm so sorry, I got stuck at work. Next time!
