Sun May 17 at 2:00 PM, Black Star Co-op
7020 Easy Wind Drive, Austin, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
April was a little crazy but I'm ready to see Austin's smiling faces in May sometime. Either a weekday evening or a weekend afternoon. Location is ideally downtown-ish or a little north and we'll be looking to replace the lamented Dog & Duck as a watering hole/munching spot. ETA: Black Star Co-op on Sunday, May 17, at 2 PM.
Sunday afternoons have been traditional (May 17 or 31?) but we can always do something different. I enjoyed drinking at the Driskill but am not married to that as a location. Thoughts?

May is crazy for me, but if I can make it, I will.

I liked that meetup we had at Black Star.

The Black Star is really great. Plus there is parking, which is not so much my experience with downtown.

May is also going to be a little mad for me, but I'll be in town until May 27.

My preference would be a Sunday afternoon.

Yeah, Saturday or Sunday afternoon, location agnostic. I was working well into the Cold Chef meet up -- weeknights are always bad for me.

Saturday or Sunday works best for me - I wasn't able to hang out long enough last time on a weeknight. I'll keep an eye on this and update my status when a date gets set.

I too can tout Sunday as a win. I am always up for the drive up the I35. Gets me outta my headspace and I get to see your lovely faces.

All right, let's plan for Sunday the 17th, and the Black Star. Call it 2-4 PM?
posted by immlass at 1:38 PM on May 7, 2015

Sounds good, it's on my colander.
posted by fiercecupcake at 2:40 PM on May 7, 2015

I like this plan. I may wind up leaving a smidge early for another meetup, but I should be around from 2-3 at least.
posted by sciatrix at 6:22 PM on May 7, 2015

I'll do my best to be there.

Awesome, myself and my wife will attend, and I wont be so crunched for time like I was before!

Terribly sorry, but something else came up. Have a good time, all!
posted by sciatrix at 1:48 PM on May 12, 2015

I'm going to try to start scheduling these regularly again so maybe we'll catch you next time, sciatrix!

ugh I just now noticed this on the side bar. My very irregularly scheduled D&D game is on Sunday.
posted by tofu_crouton at 8:47 AM on May 13, 2015

ok, got the D&D game pushed back until later so I can make it for the beginning.
posted by tofu_crouton at 6:43 PM on May 13, 2015

Yay! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hey, Austin, we're under a flash flood warning (not watch, either) this morning so please be safe and only come out if you have a safe way to the meetup. Turn around, don't drown! And as much as I want to see the smiling faces of our San Antonio contingent, you guys especially be safe because it's a wet drive to Austin today.

I've been watching the Doppler... looks like there is another mass of moisture moving from west to east... powered by high pressure just a few hours out from the last wave that raked us. I'll play it by eye in the sky and play it safe.
posted by PROD_TPSL at 10:02 AM on May 17, 2015

Please do! We'd rather see you next time than have you get stranded or something.
posted by immlass at 10:06 AM on May 17, 2015

I'm heading out shortly. I'm wearing a red t-shirt that says Everett School on the front.

We're stuck in traffic on 35 but are on our way. Look for the Viking and the woman with purple hair.
posted by immlass at 12:01 PM on May 17, 2015

We have a table outside.

My luck is my own. I have decided to stay in S.A. Got some pretty shots of the sky. You all have a blast.
