Sun August 10 at 7:30 PM, Nitelite
1920 2nd Avenue, Seattle, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
Me and my beloved wife are going to be arriving in Seattle, Washington very soon before heading to Alaska on a cruise. We would love to meet the Seattle MeFi contingent on Sunday, August 10th. You all know what I like. We'll be staying by the airport, but we're willing to venture out.

Actually, according to pips, our hotel is really near the Space Needle.

Sounds awesome! Given your location, The Nitelite might be a good venue.

Pinball, lots of different food on the block, other bars if Short's is too full.

Shorty's is great, but it's lacking in the "big table" department, isn't it?
posted by palmcorder_yajna at 10:11 AM on August 4, 2014

It is to some degree. The back room at Shorty's is good for a larger group, but it's frequently occupied by a group with the same idea.

As a public service announcement, I would like to point out that the mighty Yob is playing El Corazon the night before so if anyone feels like a night of crushing doom I'm planning on doin it.

I will do what I can to be there. Will put some thought into what jonmc would be into, but this being summer in Seattle, we are all at the beach, blissed out on how lucky we are to live in the most beautiful city in the world. Could we get a BBQ and beach fire at Golden Gardens going?

Also, Bitterroot in Ballard has an incredible bourbon collection. I need to figure out how to get musicians back to my practice space later on.

I got a friend who captains a Ride the Ducks boat, too, if we could get y2karl to narrate a Seattle history tour, it could b epic.

Also, McMenamins is near the space needle and is a good place to slum it for a few hours.

I think dive bars, cheap beer, and punk rock are the historical pillars of jonmcism, but I could be wrong, it's been a while since Comparative Religions.

Go to Mike's Chili if you get a chance.

Me and puips have consulted and we've decided it'll be the Nitelite at August 10 at 7:30 pm. Be there or be rhombus.
posted by jonmc at 4:31 PM on August 6, 2014

Because this is summer in Seattle and I have fully assimilated, I'll be hiking that day. If I'm back in the city and up for it, I'll be there. After all, your number's lower than mine so: respect. I think it's been more than a decade since we've attended a meetup. Whatup.

Just so's everyone's aware, the Nitelite is cash-only. IMO, it's worth the inconvenience.

The Jimi Hendrix exhibit is still going on at EMP.

Show these two a good time!

"If you're not paying for it, you're not the customer, you're the" guy in the black t shirt at the bar. Work wrapped up a little early.

Running late, but on my way!

We're in the back room.
posted by jonmc at 7:58 PM on August 10, 2014

Alright, kids tucked in, I'm on my way.

It was super fantastic to meet everybody, that was one memorable evening!

Here is the Seattle Gamenight that I mentioned, everybody is welcome to join in -- the official website, on Twitter and over at Facebook. I hope to see your lovely faces there.

As always, a pleasure. jonmc, I will be looking you up in a couple weeks when I'm back east, I hope we can get something going.
posted by Errant at 2:01 AM on August 11, 2014

That was super excellent. It was nice to finally meet you after all of these years, pips and jonmc. Thanks to everyone for drinks and my share of swanky appetizers and cocktails at Palace. It was highly edifying. I don't get out much these days, much less for that kind of pretty luxe tastiness.

The rest of y'all are getting old and fat! Stop that! *sucks in gut and tucks in gray hairs nonchalantly, poker-faced* :)

Nah, seriously, I almost stayed home to avoid being social, so I'm really glad I didn't.
posted by loquacious at 2:23 AM on August 11, 2014

Yes! Y'all are so much fun to hang with! Safe travels to pips and jonmc!

Being busy with moving and not paying attention to IRL of late, I am so sorry I missed this.
