Tokyo Meet Up for ovenmitt

Tue April 14 at 7:00 PM, Magical Animal
3 Chome-8-34 Minamiaoyama, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 107-0062, Japan (Map & Directions)
Mefite ovenmitt is going to be in Tokyo pretty soon, and mentioned she'd like to stop by my new shop in Omotesando. I've seen a good number of Tokyo Mefites in the last two weeks, but pretty much just one at a time. Maybe we can get together and have a proper meet up? We were mailing back and forth, and Tuesday, April 14th seemed to work best.
For my part, my shop is where I am all the time, and while I asked the mods if it would be okay according to guidelines, I understand if people aren't thrilled by the idea of having a meetup here. On the other hand, if it is okay, I think it would be great if we could get together and give ovenmitt a proper Tokyo welcome.

So, it seems like things are pretty set. Our place is across from Brooks Brothers, in the Pop-up@Aoyama complex. We're in Box C at the back, past Brimmer Beer (Box A, good beer) and Iro Kara Karaage (Box B). Looking forward to seeing you all!

Yeah, I think I'm in (although I might be on the late side ...) Can't really have too much Magical Animal in one's diet. (Or can one?)

Definitely interested. I was meaning to drop by your place sometime, and this will get me off my butt. What time are you thinking?

Not quite sure what ovenmitt's schedule will be like, but maybe something like seven? Dinner, beer, and the like?

Ok, I'm confirming.

April 14th is no good for me, but I'll need to drop by the shop another time!

I think I will be able to make it, and maybe get jetmanifesto out as well!

Hi! I would like to come along and say hello, too. I know a few Tokyo Mefites IRL but would love to meet more. Plus, I like beer and meat!

Consider yourself welcome, jet_manifesto. The more the merrier

I'm in. It's been too long since we've had a proper meetup!

Ohayo gozaimasu. I know this is kind of late to confirm but would there be enough room for me if I dropped by tonight? It looks like rain and I'm not sure what the roof situation is like there.

There is plenty of room, and the deck in front of the three boxes is covered. I was hoping for better weather so we could use the deck upstairs, but yeah, it looks like rain.

Aw, man, after all that pressuring people to go, I've gone and caught a cold. I've been trying to get over it, going to bed at 9:00 every night, but it looks like it's here to stay, so I've gotta cancel.

Sorry to hear that. I was definitely looking forward to seeing you again. Take care, and get yourself some chicken soup.
posted by Ghidorah at 9:26 PM on April 13, 2015

I'll definitely drop by the place on some regular day. I was planning to anyway, and then this came along.

Thanks to everyone who came out, it was great to see you (and meet new people). I'm not sure if anyone noticed the sign out front, but I forgot to mention it. Our sign out front is drawn with chalk, and with our lovely weather, it's pretty much all washed out, so I figured I'd put up a metafilter and seasonally appropriate sign, hence the arrow pointing to the "A Summer in a Day reading group"

Seriously, thanks again for coming out on such a lousy weather evening. It was great to see you.

Thanks for a great night out folks!

lonemantis and I can't thank y'all enough for your warm welcome on a cold night. The food was incredible and the company more so.

As our thank you, please accept this gift of sunlight and warm temps.
