I'm blowing in like a storm

Tue December 29 at 7:00 PM, Speakeasy, Omni William Penn Hotel (Lower level)
530 William Penn Pl, Pittsburgh, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm a prodigal MeFite, in town for a bit of time, and wanted to see if any MeFites lived here these days. ***~~UPDATE~~*** MeFites do live here, so I'm confirming location and time of meetup.
I'm thinking Tuesday, December 29th but I have some flexibility next week. The Pittsburgh new bar/food scene is great, and though I have some favorite haunts, I'd really like to hit up one of the many places I haven't had a chance to make it to (or even heard of, the pace of change is happening so fast). So right now I'm thinking drinks and food though I'm open to suggestions if something cool is happening.

And if you've not done a meetup before, I encourage you to come on out. Get out of the house. I've done tons of meetups, and they're lots of fun and no one is ever mean.

Merry Christmas!

I have out of town guests coming in on Monday, so I can't make it . . . boooooo.

I'm a new transplant to Pittsburgh, and I'm out of town until the 31st.

I'm here, on vacation from work and happy to meet up on Tuesday.

I'm free until about 10pm Tuesday.

I could do Tuesday evening.

I'm working during the day but free anytime in the evening!

Tuesday evening it is then! Any thoughts on venue?
posted by unannihilated at 8:31 AM on December 28, 2015

I'll go just about anywhere that makes a decent cocktail.

How about Speakeasy downtown at the William Penn? Any objections or counter proposals? 7pm work for all?

Here's a link to Speakeasy's menu: look like it's drinks only and just to forewarn people, these are fancy cocktail prices. (I see some six buck beers as well.) If any one is being held back by the prices, please let me know privately and I will be happy to buy you a drink. I'm also not married to this venue by any means. I don't want the drink prices to be the reason someone can't attend!

Speakeasy at 7pm will work for me.

Neat! 7 PM works for me as well.

I should be able to make it.

I haven't been able to kick this cold, so I'm gonna take a pass rather than cough all over everybody.

I made a valiant effort - ran and everything - but still missed my bus by 30 seconds. So my ETA is now 7:15. I'm a blonde with purple lipstick, turquoise coat. See you soon!

I'm here. Sitting in main room. Dirty blonde hair, red glasses.

For any late-comers, all here!

Great meetup! Thanks for attending!

Thanks for organizing, unannihilated, that was fun. Pittsburgh really should have more meetups (and I should probably step up and organize them).

Oh man! We just flew back into town yesterday, otherwise nakedmolerats and I would definitely have been up for this. Pittsburghers, we should definitely get together sometime soon!

Blast. Missed this. Definitely interested in further meetups, even if I'm not actually on the site much anymore...
