I'll be localing Austin during those dates and would love to meet you, visitor!

What part of Austin are you staying in? Do you have transportation? Then we can start narrowing down the when-and-where.

You know, it's been a while since we had a meetup here, and I was thinking I might need to propose one. Thank you for saving me from doing that.

Anyhow, I'm in.

Hoyay! I've been thinking it's time too. I may be in Houston the 11th & 12th (the weekend) for extended family fun, but if that's when is best for everyone else, schedule around me.

Depending on the day - i will be there!

My weekends are booked but if y'all are up for something on a weeknight, count me in.

I'm staying in the NE area near the Robert Mueller Airport, just east of Hwy 35.
posted by xenophile at 10:11 AM on December 3, 2010

That hasn't been an airport for about 11 years, but you're within walking distance of my house.

Places more or less in the area that might work for a meetup:
Red House (bar, pizza)
Cherrywood Coffee Shop
Flight Path Coffee Shop

I'd vote for Cherrywood, but then I've never been to Flight Path for some reason. I've never gotten good service in groups at Red House.
posted by fiercecupcake at 11:44 AM on December 3, 2010

We could go back to Hoovers.
posted by nightwood at 10:57 PM on December 3, 2010

Let's do it at a coffee house. Cherrywood already has a vote.

Yelp reviews:
Red House (bar, pizza)
Cherrywood Coffee Shop
Flight Path Coffee Shop

Not sure if I'll be in town or not, hope to make it if I'm in town, it'd be my first meetup.

i would love to see y'all again, and i nth the recommendation of the cherrywood coffee shop -- it's roomy, indoor/outdoor, good food selection but also good coffee and adult beverages.

I'm up for Cherrywood. And I agree that a weekday (or a Sunday?) would be best, since people usually have a ton o' weekend plans around this time.
posted by bluishorange at 7:21 AM on December 6, 2010

I'd love to get in on this. My schedule these next couple of weeks is pretty nutty, so I'll stay out of any time/date discussions and just hope things line up! I am pro-Cherrywood.
posted by dirtdirt at 7:58 AM on December 6, 2010

Evening is best for me. Let's get this ironed out, people. OP, how is your Saturday night the 11th or Sunday the 12th looking, or Wednesday the 15th? Since no one else has thrown out actual dates yet.
posted by fiercecupcake at 9:28 AM on December 6, 2010

Any of those times mentioned would be fine for me.
posted by xenophile at 1:05 PM on December 6, 2010

I've been in Austin since March, and have been quietly waiting for a meetup to happen. Any of those dates are great.
posted by jpziller at 1:26 PM on December 6, 2010

Since people have said above weeknights might be better, how does Wednesday, Dec. 15, at Cherrywood sound? Is 7 pm OK?

Oh, lord, does this mean I'm organizing?
posted by fiercecupcake at 1:33 PM on December 6, 2010

Seconded. Yes, you're organizing. Thanks!
posted by adamrice at 1:46 PM on December 6, 2010

Works for me. Way to take charge, fierce.
posted by donajo at 4:11 PM on December 6, 2010

Live in IRL! Yay.
posted by fiercecupcake at 4:22 PM on December 6, 2010

I don't see where I can add myself. I think xenophile has to make it live. But in any case Wednesday the 15th looks good for me.
posted by immlass at 4:46 PM on December 6, 2010

Thanks, everyone! See you all there.

Hey y'all,

Cherrywood has a cozy little side room (a recent addition), and I just inquired about reserving it for our meetup. It requires a $40 deposit (that will go toward the first $40 in food and beverages we order), which I'm happy to cover. It's available from 6 pm to 9 pm that evening. Shall we move the start time to 6:00? And then if anyone wants to hang past 9:00, we can just migrate to the main part of the coffeehouse, or go elsewhere.

Sound good? OK!

side room reserved!
posted by slappy_pinchbottom at 9:48 AM on December 9, 2010

Works for me.
posted by adamrice at 10:29 AM on December 9, 2010

I think I can make this. Looking forward to it.
posted by mattbucher at 1:09 PM on December 9, 2010

OK, see you all at 6pm Wednesday.
