Sat May 12 at 4:00 PM, Parkway Tavern
313 N I St, Tacoma, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
Hello South Sounders! Me and Mr. Miss Mobtown have recently arrived from the Bay Area and we have befriended a few Seattleites but very few Tacomans. I never took advantage of IRLs when I lived in SF, but I'm stepping outside my comfort zone to suggest a meetup in Tacoma sometime in early May for a beer. What say you?

I am a Tacoman as well - My wife and I moved here a couple of years ago, and many of my friends in the region are still in Seattle - so I understand your plight. :) Early may could work for both of us. Any place / area of Tacoma that you had in mind?

If you're open to suggestions, I'm a big fan of the Parkway Tav. Black Kettle Bites & Brew on Market Street is a pretty chill gathering spot as well.

Hee-hee: Tacoman...Taco Man. How did I not notice until now?

I'm very open to suggestions, particularly The Parkway, since I've been meaning to try it and their nice looking front patio!

Are weeknight evenings or weekends better for most?

Fri-Sat-Sun better on this end (I speak for myself and stet)

Looking forward to it!!

Very well! Let's meet for a happy-ish hour at the Parkway Tavern on Saturday, May 12 around 4 p.m. I'm utterly flexible if anyone has strong opinions about time/place.

I am 30000% down for this.

Hello again, I'll see you on Saturday. I'll be the unserious-looking woman with the bobbed hair and cat eye glasses. And I may find something blue to wear, the better to be theme-ish. Looking forward to meeting!

I'll be driving up from Olympia and should be there 4-ish unless the JBLM traffic is horrible. (Me: very short grey hair, glasses, will be wearing black "Trogdor the Burninator" t-shirt.)

I should be there at 4 but will probably be leaving by around 5:30 or so as I have tickets for a show later. I am incredibly generic and have no idea what I will be wearing, so I will be the woman looking hesitant and peering at groups of individuals.

...and when I say 4, what I meant is “I am super late and will see you at 4:30”

We are at a table right inside the door, four of us now.

Oh man, that would have saved me a bunch of awkwardness. ;)

Great spending time with everyone!

Fun times! Thanks for coming out, folks. I hope we can do it again soon.
