PyCon in Cleveland in May
posted February 7, 2019 7:34 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed May 8 at 6:30 PM, Ontario Street Cafe
2053 Ontario St, Cleveland, OH, USA (Map & Directions)
PyCon North America 2019 will be May 1-9 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Any other MeFites coming? Want to grab a beverage together somewhere in there? Note that the conference itself is close to selling out of registrations -- register soon if you want a ticket and you haven't got one yet!
The arts festival I'm running, with several plays plus a short video and some live music, will be the evening of Friday, May 3rd.

People attending PyCon: how about we try to grab a coffee together on Sunday morning May 5th around 11am, in the expo hall?

People not attending PyCon: how about Ontario Street Cafe like you did in March, on Wednesday night May 8th?

probably not attending pycon at this point, but I'm a local. :)

(also, if you haven't gone before; pycon is downtown and there's plenty of restaurants and bars within a 15 minute walk from the convention center (although the selection of places within a 5 minute walk is minimal).

Another local non-PyCon-attendee here, totally up for any Meetup in theory. A highly erratic work schedule means that I'll have to count as a "maybe" until we're much closer to the dates, though.

Local, code-adjacent, and prone to being downtown but not attending. I haven't seen you all since I was blonde, and I look forward to showing you my grizzled locks in person.

Local folks should of course feel free to hold a meetup sooner than May :-)

Local, non-attendee. Never been to a meetup! I could be persuaded.

I’d love to do a CLE-based meetup but I’m not attending PyCon.

So it sounds like there are a bunch of you who might like to see each other sometime soon! If y'all want to do something when I swing by in May, cool; in addition to that, may I suggest someone local propose a "come do this thing with me" (e.g., watch a play, knit, sing karaoke, play board games) activity sometime in Feb or March.

I'd also join a meetup in early May.

I'd be up for a meetup in May. I'm not a programmer, so I won't be going to PyCon.

Ontario St. on the 8th sounds good to me.

I can't do the 8th, but have fun!

It's on my calendar! My track record for these is, frankly, not good, but I'm making plans anyway!

Looking forward to seeing the folks who can make it tomorrow night!

Surprise! It’s 6th grade open house from 7-8. I think my son was hoping we wouldn’t find out. I’ll be leaving Key Tower at 5, if anyone’s up for an earlier drink though! Like I should be moving on at 6, but either Ontario St Cafe or even the stupid bar at the Marriott. Bonus: Fancy Business-dress Chesty!

Just saw your update, Chesty. Sorry I'll miss you.

Am at The Ontario now. Indian-American woman wearing a light tan shirt.

We are moving to ReBol in Public Square.

That was great fun, thanks for organizing this brainwane. (We eventually wound up getting drinks in the penthouse bar of the downtown Hilton with a fantastic view of the lake and a surprise guest appearance by ChrisR. And a cannolo with glitter chocolate chips.)
