8th through 12th of October, yes?

I like to meet mefites, I'm up for something.

I'd be up for dinner & drinks, or just dinner, or just drinks, most of those nights.

The one time I went to an out-of-town mefi meetup while traveling was awesome. I hope something gels here.

I'm down. I used to go to a bunch of bay area meetups, haven't been to any in Minneapolis since I moved back.

Sorry, yes. October.

I'm staying at the LuMinn/Hotel Minneapolis, but I could take a ride share to somewhere else.

I'm in!

I'll be in town for work stuff so I'll be busy between 9 and 5, and I imagine my hosts will want to take me out on Thursday so let's start with a proposed evening of Wednesday the 10th, 6:00 pm, at Hell's Kitchen. Looks affordable, and the food looks good. I've made an easily cancelable reservation for seven people. Would that work?

If cost is a deterrent I could probably pick-up a check or two. Would be happy to do it.

I just bought a mefi t-shirt which I'll be wearing at the venue. I have a long braided ponytail and a beard.

I may be there we shall see

I live exactly four blocks from Hell's Kitchen, so how could I refuse? I've not been there but also heard good things. Looking forward to meeting some Twin Cities Mefites; I've only lived in town for two months.

Sounds like fun! I'll be flying back in that evening, so likely won't make it this time, unfortunately.

If you have the opportunity, stop by. Who knows how late we'll be there.
posted by Stanczyk at 4:39 PM on September 27, 2018

Hey, I'll be at home! Adding it to the calendar and will try to make it over.

Just want to confirm that this is definitely on October 10th and not October 4th?
posted by triggerfinger at 9:08 PM on October 2, 2018 [1 favorite]

No, it's the 10th. Fixed.

So I'm here in your fine city and very much looking forward to seeing folks tomorrow.
posted by Stanczyk at 4:38 PM on October 9, 2018

I just realized that I forgot to pack my MetaFilter t-shirt so look for a hippy in a brown hoodie instead.

With apologies, I was in Duluth for 12 hours yesterday for work and I'll be in St. Cloud tomorrow similarly so I am going to have to bow out in order to crash from yesterday and get ready for tomorrow. I hope you will come through town again, Stanczyk, and I hope I will get another chance to meet the rest of you sometime soon.

I'll be there just after six. Tall man with glasses and blondish-brownish long-ish hair, black coat with a black lives matter pin, orange and white pinstripe collared shirt and gray slacks.

(minus the plus one, she's feeling under the weather)
posted by Kwine at 11:55 AM on October 10, 2018

I'm so sorry, but I am in day 2 of some kind of a horrible lurgy and won't be able to make it. I was hoping to feel better by tonight (I <3 Hell's Kitchen) but I can hardly drag myself off the couch, plus my voice is gone so I wouldn't be a great conversationalist anyway. :( I hope you all have fun though.

Got here early -- have beard and blue button-up shirt, sitting at bar.
posted by paper chromatographologist at 3:43 PM on October 10, 2018

Running a few minutes late; see you soon!
posted by Orange Dinosaur Slide at 3:44 PM on October 10, 2018

Big thanks to those who were able to attend. Had a great time. Hope to see you again soon.
