Mon January 24 at 6:00 PM, Anodyne
409 Central Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey Albuquerque! Want to hang out this weekend?
I'll be in town from Friday 1/21 until Tuesday 1/25, so if anyone's available to hang out I'd love to meet you!

Sunday or Monday evening work best for me, as I arrive Friday afternoon and have dinner plans on Saturday night. However if Friday works best for everyone else I won't say no. Who am I to refuse the Internet?

I grew up in Rio Rancho and and it's been years and years since I've been back, so I can't suggest any place to meet but it would be my pleasure to buy the first round!

I'm in. I still have not managed to make it to a meetup yet and would love to meet my local/visiting Mefites. How about somewhere downtown? Blackbird or Anodyne? Both on Central, both with ample seating. Sunday or Monday night works for me.

Alright! We have some life here! I was worried that with such short notice there wouldn't be anyone available. Either of those places looks pretty good to me. Let's wait a bit longer to see if anyone else chimes in, and then we can lock this down by Friday.

Also I vote for Anodyne. I love Anodyne on nights that are not Friday and Saturday so much.

Sounds like Anodyne then! Anyone have a preference for when? I'm chillin' here at PHX at the moment, so I'll check back in a couple of hours or so.

Monday works best for me, so how about 6pm? Do you guys have any recommendations for tasty local beers I should try while I'm out here?
posted by sambosambo at 6:59 AM on January 22, 2011

I know nothing about beer. I should note that Anodyne doesn't serve food though.
posted by NoraReed at 7:21 AM on January 22, 2011

Is it a problem if they don't serve food? Does Blackbird sound better? How about the time I mentioned? Does 6pm on Monday work?

So many questions, I know.

No no, that's fine! I just want to make sure no one shows up there expecting dinner, since beer for dinner is not usually very effective.

Okay, since no one's objected I went ahead and confirmed the meetup.

Is anyone planning on driving from Santa Fe for this? If so, I've had all my shots and can probably pay for gas. Send me a Metafilter message if you'd be willing to carpool with me.

Actually, no, nevermind. I have something else I have to do tomorrow night.

I'll be wearing a tie with a zipper on it and my hair will be up in chopsticks.

Thanks for a great time tonight, guys! We'll have to do it again sometime, so if you're ever on the West Coast let me know!
