Wow, my last final is over at 4:30, then my daughter's Christmas play is at 5:30 (NO CRYING HE MADE FOR JESUS WAS ASLEEP ON THE HAY), and then I can probably make it. Hooray!

(in case you missed it from the other thread:)

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!

is it ok to bring an infant along? if not, i can see if her dad will come over to watch her. either way is cool, just trying to narrow down the options.

it'll be yay to see MeFites again - been too long!

(also might bring my brother - he really enjoyed the experience in March and this is on his b-day)

i don't see why you couldn't bring an infant -- i see people at Cherrywood with babies all the time, and the reserved room is spacious enough that there shouldn't be any problem finding a nook to attend to her needs if you need to.

Way to go, slappy_pinchbottom! Thanks!

righteous! we'll be there!

Will be there, hopefully with a future MeFite (Christmas gift membership for the ol' SO). So psyched!

Aw man, that's like 4 blocks from my house! It's my local coffehouse ('cos Thunderbird is lame). But I have to work that night and so I can't make it :(

I'll probably be showing up around 6:30 and will either celebrate or lament the semester.

With the switch to 6 PM, I should be able to make it for a little bit. I have a birthday function to go to which starts around 8 or so, so I can't stay the whole time. I'm looking forward to finally meeting some mefites after all these years!

dangit! we're possibly fighting colds, so we're going to keep ourselves quarantined.

see proposals for next month, though!

Ugh, I am really sorry to be lame but I apparently have a fever and Mr. immlass pointed out I should not infect every MeFite in Austin and beyond with whatever I have. Sorry to miss you guys and I hope to see Team Austin in January.

Good times, folks. The shout outs are posted.

It was great to meet you all last night and I love the coffeehouse. For those of you who were sick, I hope to meet you next time. Hopefully I will be a real Austinite by then!
