I will monitor this thread. 26th is out as we host a boxing day party. But the 27th is possible.

Thanks for calling a meetup!

As for locations I always default to the various craft beer spots in town. Last BTV meetup we attended was at Vermont Pub & Brewery. It worked well. For our group of 8-10(?).

It can get crowded, but I recommend downstairs at Farmhouse as another location.
Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town for the holidays.

I love the farmhouse but it can get pricey fast.

Sounds great! Both of those dates should work for me, though the 27th is definitely preferable.

The Gryphon might be worth considering as a venue, though it's not ideal for a group larger than, say, 8 or so. Good drinks.

Wait, you're from Burlington?!?

en forme de poire: No, but that's where I tell I'm from. (I'm actually from EJ.)

Well, let's call it for the 27th since that works for everyone so far. Let's say 7 pm because that's late enough that people can eat first or eat there.

As for location... I'm leaning toward Vermont Pub & Brewery or American Flatbread. Or does the latter get too crowded? Both should have good food for a reasonable price and lots of beer. What do you think?

maryr I'd be good with either of those choices - both have good food and good beer selections.

Anything happening here?

Checking back in on the 25th to say we are still a definite maybe. Awaiting instruction.

Sorry. I've been heavily involved in family Christmas preparations and watching cays fought. Calling it for 7pm at American Flatbread. I'll call tomorrow to make sure we don't need a reservation.

Sorry for the delays!

Though I had been considering coming down, I am in fact not able to make it.

And I hate to report that turtlegirl and I will not be attending. Absolutely cream crackered after last night and I have to work tomorrow. Very sorry to miss it.

I'd like to come, too, but other plans have arisen in the interim.
Hope we can try this again soon!
posted by Dr. Wu at 8:51 AM on December 27, 2014

OK, it's sort of inconvenient for me too, so I'm canceling. I'll try again another time. Happy New Year, all!

Bummer but yeah, it was going to be hard for me to break away from fam today too. Next time!
