MeFites in the Research Triangle--how about brunch on an upcoming Saturday/Sunday? SNOW DATE - Groundhog Day (Feb 2)
I made reservations at Milltown for Saturday at 11 am. Just say you are there for "Metafilter" when you arrive!

See you all there!

I love brunch!

Great idea - let’s do it!

I am all for this!

Some thoughts: Parker & Otis can be hard to get enough seats at. It's all about the timing, and I haven't eaten there recently enough to know when the busy times are. Grub doesn't have much indoor seating so it might be tricky in the cold months.

As things stand any weekend on the list looks good.

Hi all,

I'd love to meet some fellow North Carolinastan MeFites. Put me down as a "hopeful I will be able to attend!"

PS - I'm in Carrboro, locations there would be ideal but Durham can work too. Thanks y'all!

Lived here 3 years; just learned how to spell Carrboro !

Leaning towards Jan 26 or 27, with a snow date on Groundhog Day (Feb 2). Let me know what you think!

Depending when folks want to meet, Copa in Durham could be a possibility, and they take reservations.

There’s also Mama Dip’s.

No particular preference on dates.

I may well be in town around this time, so put me there as a maybe!

I’ll be honest, that is too early for me on a Saturday, I’ll see y’all next time!

Still trying to decompress from the holidays, but for now I'll say maybe!

Would 11/11:30 be preferrable for folks? I don't really have any preference on this, just picked an arbirtrary date/time from the list so it is on the books.

Any of the times so far suggested will do for me.

I genuinely have no excuse not to come to this and I haven't been to a meet-up in a while. Barring unforeseen calamity, I'm there.

11:00 or 11:30 would be better for us on a Saturday.
posted by oceanjesse at 2:14 AM on January 5, 2019

I'm still a maybe, but leaning towards yes.

Seconding everything Thivaia said. Barring disaster, I’ll be there.

My book group is meeting that day to make signs/carpool to the Women's March in Raleigh. Exact time TBD, but as long as it doesn't overlap, I'm in.

ooooohhhh.....maybe I'll actually possibly finally potentially come out to one of these!
I'm a soft maybe for now, and generally very flexible on weekends!
posted by Dorinda at 9:32 AM on January 13, 2019

@basalganglia, thanks for mentioning the March. You'll need delicious brunch to fuel the protesting!
posted by tealcoffeecup at 7:04 PM on January 13, 2019

Looking forward to seeing you guys!
posted by thivaia at 10:39 AM on January 24, 2019

I'm excited!
posted by Stewriffic at 5:22 AM on January 25, 2019

I'll be there, but it will probably just be me without the fam. Kiddo's got band practice.
posted by Rock Steady at 9:25 AM on January 25, 2019

So, I’ve had a surprise out of town guest. I am trying to convince her to come to brunch with me, but it’s possible I won’t make it today. Which is a total bummer.
posted by thivaia at 6:12 AM on January 26, 2019

I am also withdrawing my attendance. For those of you who don't know me, I am a freelance commercial translator. Which basically means I work whenever clients send me work. WHENEVER. Guess who got a project last minute that is going to have her working over the weekend?
(points at self).

Sorry gang, gonna miss this one!

Ten minutes away!
posted by oceanjesse at 8:01 AM on January 26, 2019

:( You will both be missed! Next time.

That was really fun! Amazing chicken and waffles. Great to see all of you, and nice to meet you, tealcoffeecup!

Agreed! Let's do it again real soon. I do like the potluck idea...
posted by Rock Steady at 4:23 PM on January 26, 2019 [1 favorite]

Great to meet you all too!
posted by tealcoffeecup at 5:51 PM on January 27, 2019

Sad I missed this. I threw out my back last Tuesday, so putting on pants hurt pretty bad. Didn't make it out of the house all weekend. Maybe next time!
