Sat January 28 at 2:00 PM, Two Fools Tavern
3211 Central Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM, USA (Map & Directions)
Yeah. I can't believe it either. But then, here we are. Wanna think? Shall we drink?
Yeah. So. This year, AMIRITE?!?

Saturday, January 21st. Say, 2PM?

You may drink what you want. Chances are, I'll be with coffee in hand. Let's meet, greet, and commiserate on just what the Hell we're supposed to do now.

One Fool? Two Fools? Take your pick.

Cause I've already disowned my family.

Seriously, Two Fools on Central is a great, friendly place with good coffee for those who have run dry, like me.

A meetup would be wonderful.

annsunny, do you have a favored venue? Would Two Fools be agreeable?
posted by PROD_TPSL at 11:50 AM on December 29, 2016

There is a protest in Albuquerque on the 21st. I think it's from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. I hope o be meeting up with Old Lesbians Organizing for Change. There is also a protest in Albuquerque on Jan. 20. Could we do this Jan. 22, or the next week?

Maureen, Thanks for that info about other actions that weekend. The 22nd would be totally cool.

Would love to meetup but I am going to the march in DC. Maybe the following weekend?
posted by nikitabot at 9:58 AM on January 2, 2017

I'm open about the time and venue. Sorry, I have been very distracted the past few days. The 22nd is fine with me, and have never been to Two Fools. I love trying new places.

I'm up for something. I'm sorry I haven't followed through with prior meetup initiations.
posted by filthy light thief at 6:39 AM on January 8, 2017

Nikitabot, you bring up a very valid point. To accommodate those who are participating in demonstrations, I think that the following weekend would be best. How does the 28th or the 29th sound to everyone?
posted by PROD_TPSL at 3:09 PM on January 9, 2017

Either the 28th or 29th is good for me.
posted by maurreen at 7:34 AM on January 13, 2017

If it's at 2 pm, either the 28th or 29th, with a slight preference for the 29th.

BTW, the 28th is Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year).

Two Fools sounds about right -- oh, and the restaurant by that name is great too! And it's nice to support a Central Avenue business in the construction area too.

Yes, please!
posted by annsunny at 11:08 PM on January 21, 2017

Maurreen, I'll make the call today for the reservation on Saturday the 28th... just to make sure they EXPECT US.

posted by PROD_TPSL at 2:21 PM on January 23, 2017

Looks like it's first come, first serve. It could be cool... or it could be a blood bath. I told'em that we might have as many as ten just for good measure.
posted by PROD_TPSL at 7:08 PM on January 23, 2017

Thanks for setting everything up, PROD_TPSL.

I'm looking forward to this, my first MeFi meetup.

Yay! This is my first time scheduling one! Does this mean I've matured?!?
posted by PROD_TPSL at 6:17 AM on January 24, 2017

If there were MeFi badges, you would have earned the "Scheduled a Meetup" badge, which I will now mentally subtitle "It could be cool... or it could be a blood bath." :)

We're officially in! Is it a kid-friendly place? We have two boys, a five year old and a 2 year old. If it is kid-friendly, we may be a posse of 4 adults + 2 kids (my parents-in-law, my wife, myself, and our two junior associates). If not, it'll just be me and my wife, and we'll bring my PIL some food and beer as thanks for boy-sitting.

I'll mass-MeMail folks tonight, to get the word out to other MeFites. Thanks for putting this together, PROD_TPSL!
posted by filthy light thief at 2:05 PM on January 26, 2017

FLT, it's kid friendly as you and your wife will be present. Booyah!
posted by PROD_TPSL at 4:51 PM on January 26, 2017

Thanks :)

A handful of MeMails sent out just now, we'll see if anyone checks in between now and then. (I forgot how many "ghost" MeFites there are around here - some folks haven't been active in over a decade, if they ever were.)
posted by filthy light thief at 11:33 AM on January 27, 2017

FLT, a brave soul you are... calling out to the "Ghosts"...
posted by PROD_TPSL at 1:01 PM on January 27, 2017

I tried, once. They didn't reply. Now I leave them to their solitude.
posted by filthy light thief at 1:25 PM on January 27, 2017

OMG I am soo glad I checked the meetup! I had it in my mind it was on a Sunday. See y'all tomorrow!
posted by annsunny at 8:13 PM on January 27, 2017

I'll be there... well... because I set this whole shindig in motion. Look for a tall man in a black leather jacket, blonde hair, and a big nose.
posted by PROD_TPSL at 9:55 AM on January 28, 2017

We are en route, just the two of us - I'm tall in glasses and a faux fur hoodie and ... Arms? It makes sense when you see it. My wife is has long dark brown hair and a grey jacket.
posted by filthy light thief at 12:33 PM on January 28, 2017

Jeans and a maroon t for me. May be late, depending on traffic.
posted by annsunny at 12:48 PM on January 28, 2017

Huzzah! I call today's meet up a resounding success! We will have to congregate more often for awesome times of awesome.
