Fri June 5 at 8:00 PM, Mission Dolores
249 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area? I heard the 4th Avenue Pub was good, but I don't know the area, so I'm open to other venues, and any time between Friday afternoon and Saturday night is fine by me. EDIT: Let's go to Mission Dolores! If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.

4th Avenue Pub is drinks-only - I mean, there's the popcorn machine, and you can bring take-out, but they don't serve food, if you're looking for a drinks+dinner venue.

Yeah, can we please not do 4th Ave Pub? I'd be happy to suggest some other places, hopefully with a back yard in case the weather is nice. The only thing they really do is beer, so you can't grab a bite or a decent cocktail.

By "drinks/food" I meant "drinks and/or food" - if people want to go somewhere else, I'd be fine going somewhere else.

What was that bar we went to one winter meetup, where it was freezing because of the entry door/wall was mostly glass? I think it had some kind of outdoor courtyard that seemed like it might be better for a summertime meetup, and some of us got dinner first at a nearby place with a pickle-based menu. That was in Brooklyn somewhere, no?

That was my meetup, oh yeah! The pickle place is the Pickle Shack and it is across the street from Mission Dolores, the glassy bar. Threes, which is a bar with beer, cocktails, and a rotating food menu, is also nearby and pretty nice. (Unfortunately I am going to be away that weekend but hope you enjoy your stay, Rustic Etruscan!)

Mission Dolores is a nice bar. And they have a Theater of Magic pinball table.

Sorry I'll miss you, ferret branca! Mission Dolores seems nice, as does Threes. Any other ideas/particular preferences?

I'm obsessed with 4th ave pub because I only care about popcorn and beer so I hope I did not steer you wrong! Let me know if you need a place to stay or similar :) I might make it up the weekend this happens.

I will be there for this after all!

Mission Dolores sounds nice and I love pinball so that's my vote!

OK, then. So are there any strong objections to Mission Dolores or any strong preferences for a different place? When do people want to go?
posted by Rustic Etruscan at 8:54 AM on May 14, 2015

Five days is probably enough time to wait for objections/suggestions. How about Friday night at Mission Dolores around 8:00?

That sounds good to me.

I'm almost certainly going to get dinner at Pickle Shack to kill time between leaving work & going to Mission Dolores, anybody else interested?

Updated 'maybe' to 'yes' -- how do I recognize you all without usernames under everything you say?

Hi all - I decided to make it. Should be there around 9 or so. Please update if you move. Cheers!

Just made it to the Pickle Shack, see everyone later.

We're right in front on the right, in the courtyard.
