I'm from Puerto Rico and don't make it to the states often. I will be in Philadelphia for a conference from Sunday May 6 to Wednesday afternoon on the 9th. Proposing a casual meet-up, beers or somethun, to meet actual living MeFites.

So long as no medical tests to prove we/I are living.

What's your poison? I'm a huge craft beer nerd. Scotch sometimes. If craft beer, there's a huge variety too, Sours, iPas, belgians, etc.

Hey, great! I’m definitely available on Sunday for a meetup.

Also, I’ve been meaning to check out Spin for a while now. Smack dab in the middle of the city, beers and table tennis, if there’s interest in doing that on Sunday.

Does anyone know if the PHS Pop-up gardens will be up by then? Those are a nice option for a meetup. Outdoors beer is civilized beer.

Okay, well, I'm flexible. And beers are only a suggestion. You all know more than me. Someplace where you can converse and be heard.

I don't know the protocol for voting for one over the other. My ping pong was decent, like 20 years ago.

The South Street Pop-Up and the West Philly Pop-Up both have soft opening of April 26th, and 'grand opening's on the 3rd of May through the 6th of May. The overall calendar isn't up yet so I'm not sure about whether or not they'll be open on May 7th through May 9th, though.

I would personally recommend against visiting the Grand Opening of the Beer Gardens on Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Maybe I'm just no fun, but they will probably be....chaotic.
