No timeline but the new Psycho Suzi's is supposedly damned cool.

I like beer. I also totally bailed on the last one, so if you're lucky I will get y'alls hopes up and then dash them to the ground

If someone plans it, I'm totally in.

If I can remember to check IRL, that is...

Surly Brewing's 5th anniversary is in a couple of weeks and there are going to be several Events, I'm just sayin'.

It sounds awesome to me. I am away until February 1 though, any chance it could be a February thing?
posted by cabingirl at 5:41 PM on January 14, 2011

I'm there, so long as I know where there is!
posted by dinty_moore at 6:53 PM on January 14, 2011

Surly anniversary sounds really good.

Would love to attend but am out of state for the first half of February. If after that, I'd be in. Also, happy to help plan if you need the help.
posted by supercapitalist at 10:43 AM on January 15, 2011

lets just say end of February then. supercapitalist, help is appreciated and much needed. MeMail me for details.
posted by wheelieman at 4:08 PM on January 15, 2011

I would love to be involved in this. I would have totally missed it but for cabingirl's MeMail, tho, so maybe we should send more of those out to make sure people see it.
posted by norm at 10:36 AM on January 26, 2011

I would definitely be interested as well! I'm fairly flexible.
posted by superlibby at 6:04 PM on January 26, 2011

For those who like beer, I've started another meetup thread here. Not to steal wheelieman's thunder or anything. I think we, as a people, can handle two meetups in one month!
posted by cabingirl at 8:34 AM on January 27, 2011

Very much interested, but it will all come down to the specifics...
posted by nickmark at 11:19 AM on February 1, 2011

I actually had a dream last night about attending a MetaFilter meetup, so I figured I'd come back and ask - is an end-of-February thing still on?
posted by nickmark at 12:02 PM on February 9, 2011

Nickmark, I think it still is on. Lets hash this out over the next day or two, and see what we can accomplish.
posted by wheelieman at 7:23 AM on February 10, 2011

Huzzah! I'd prefer not the 21st, 22nd, or 24th, but I think I'm pretty available other evenings, with a bit of notice.
posted by nickmark at 1:22 PM on February 11, 2011

How about the last week in Feb? Any days work or not work for anyone?
posted by wheelieman at 4:54 PM on February 11, 2011

Week of the 21st? I'm out of town all week..back on the 25th.

Week of the 28th I'm golden.
posted by cabingirl at 9:22 PM on February 11, 2011

Week of 28 it is!
posted by wheelieman at 3:28 PM on February 13, 2011

I will request not on the actual 28th or 29th. But the rest of the week should be pretty good for me.
posted by norm at 1:00 PM on February 14, 2011

Er, the first even. It's not a leap year.
posted by norm at 1:01 PM on February 14, 2011

The latter part of that week should work on my end, provided (as I've assumed) we're talking an evening thing.
posted by nickmark at 1:23 PM on February 14, 2011

I will attempt to rally the troops again to check in on the thread. (It may be verging on spam at this point.)
posted by cabingirl at 7:35 PM on February 14, 2011

Consider the troops rallied, Cabingirl!

Also, I'm quitting my job. My last day is the 1st. A meetup seems like a awesome to start putting the "fun" in "funemployment." Thus, I'll put my weight behind norm and nickmark's suggestion of later that week.

This* is going to be great!

*Wait, do we know what this is, yet, or are we figuring out the date first and going from there?
posted by SemiSophos at 7:49 PM on February 14, 2011

I would be into this. Monday and Thursday nights are the best for me, weekends are a guaranteed no-go (usually.)
posted by louche mustachio at 10:26 PM on February 14, 2011

Sounds super-fun! The actual 28th doesn't work for me, but I can do any other time that week.
posted by superlibby at 9:25 AM on February 15, 2011

Was a day decided? I need to get a babysitter.
posted by supercapitalist at 10:15 AM on February 15, 2011

Okay, here's a poll where you can indicate what days work for you. I only included March 2 (Wednesday) through March 6 (Sunday) since we seem to have consensus on "the latter part of the week of the 28th."

Go fill out the poll.
posted by SemiSophos at 12:45 PM on February 15, 2011

Given the poll results, I'm going to go ahead and call this race for Wednesday, March 2nd. Sunday is the only thing that's really close, but Wheelieman, proposer of this here meetup, can't make it on Sunday. And I'd feel terrible if we were all like "Yeah, wheelieman, a meetup is a great idea. But we're having it when you can't come."

So, by the power invested in me by guilt tripping anyone who wants to hold the meetup on a day that the meetup initiator can't make, I hereby decree that Wednesday, March 2nd is the date of the most glorious and appropriate date for our meetup.

Poll closed.

Let's start the planning!
posted by SemiSophos at 4:39 PM on February 16, 2011

My votes are for either Kity Kat Klub in Dinkytownm , or Moscow on the Hill in St. Paul.
posted by wheelieman at 5:36 PM on February 16, 2011

Kitty Cat Klub sounds great to me.
posted by superlibby at 8:02 PM on February 16, 2011

I've never been to the Kitty Cat Klub. This meetup could fix that.
posted by SemiSophos at 9:33 PM on February 16, 2011

Kitty Kat Klub sounds good. I can probably be there around 8; gotta get the kid to bed before heading out.
posted by nickmark at 7:02 AM on February 17, 2011

I got stuck in the elevator lift last time, but hey I am willing to try again LOL
posted by wheelieman at 7:34 AM on February 17, 2011

Kitty Kat Klub works for me.
posted by cabingirl at 10:40 AM on February 17, 2011

I went ahead and made this official then. I said 8 pm, but we can ajust it if need be.
posted by wheelieman at 12:27 PM on February 17, 2011

And how will I know the group? I will be wearing a helmet. :]
posted by killingpretty at 9:26 AM on February 25, 2011

I will try to wear my Metafilter shirt. wheelieman will be on wheels. If all else fails, just start asking random groups "Are you with mathowie?"
posted by cabingirl at 6:54 PM on February 26, 2011

I'll try to remember to wear my NORM! t-shirt.
posted by norm at 9:03 PM on February 26, 2011

I missed the last one too, but am gonna try to make this one!
posted by Bourbonesque at 7:08 PM on March 1, 2011

Well shit, I'm out. Next time, MeFites, NEXT TIME! (Promise/ threat.)
posted by killingpretty at 1:08 PM on March 2, 2011

It's cold and I'm tired, so I'm wimping out. Sorry guys!
posted by dinty_moore at 2:30 PM on March 2, 2011

I'm still in!
posted by SemiSophos at 3:11 PM on March 2, 2011

Still looking good for me, too. I will be the nerdy looking guy who can't find his NORM! t-shirt.
posted by norm at 3:14 PM on March 2, 2011

I'm running ~10-15 minutes late :(
posted by SemiSophos at 5:46 PM on March 2, 2011

Wheelieman et al are here, up the stairs.
