Meetup in Memphis on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Otherlands seems to be pretty centrally located.
I will have a Metafilter sign on the table.

Provided I don't somehow already have commitments I'm forgetting right now, I'm totally game. It'd be about damn time! If they can have Meet Ups in Alaska or wherever the heck it was, I think we should be able to pull this together!

Ok, so Otherlands on Saturday afternoon, 2/25? Say, 2:00? If that works for you guys, I'll move it over to the confirmed page. But I'm open to the date and time, if you want to chime in on t hat. Hey, three's enough for me!

I don't know if I'll be able to make it from Little Rock, but I'm interested.

box, had no idea you were Arkansan. If you can't make this one, just let us know ahead of time when you cross the bridge and we'll set up another one.

I keep thinking to myself, "we should have a Memphis meet up," but then I forget to do anything about it. So yay--somebody else finally did! I'm pretty sure I can make this.

Finally an event we socially awkward Memphians can look forward to. Yay!

Dang. Busy then, or I'd be there.

Have fun all!

I'd love to be there. I was at one a number of years ago at the blue monkey.

I actually thought to myself yesterday, "we should have a Memphis meetup sometime." I've already got plans to be out of town that weekend or I'd be there.

See everyone tomorrow!

Nice meeting you all in the flesh!

Thanks for the afternoon of great conversation. Can't wait for the next one.

That was fun. So great to meet you. And the surprise cameo by baby_balrog was cool. Quote of the day, "Sorry I called you a sentient fart."

I just noticed today the little note below this post box:
Note: You're going to see these people in real life.

And thought about you both. Did you notice he actually blushed a little?

UGH. Our brand new washer conked out on us and the husband called and scheduled the repair visit for today, smack dab in the middle of the meet up (you know, with the standard 4-hour window of time waiting around for someone to come). I assumed he'd be around to watch for the guy coming but he went off to early vote and got sidetracked at the library booksale, leaving me trapped at home. Ugh ugh ugh. Pleeeease schedule another one sometime soon...I hate being that flakey weasel. I really wanna do this!

Don't worry, we'll do it again soon. There were only four of us, but we had a really good time and want to see Memphis's name on that meetup list regularly. We finally tore ourselves away after two hours, so I learned to budget more time. And btw, I went to the booksale yesterday and my husband called to make sure I hadn't dropped off the face of the earth. There was a lot there!

Hooray, thanks for giving me hope.

Yeah, I couldn't stay mad at him--he picked up a James Beard cookbook for me!

Sorry I missed it--I got pulled into work yesterday. Hope to be at a future Memphis meetup, though.
