I'm in if it's not this Saturday!

I would bowl, albeit poorly. I do like North Bowl. Probably the Mrs as well. Well, as long as it's after the 19th, because that's when the Mrs is officially becoming the Mrs. But don't schedule on our account.

Oh, but weekends are just...out for me.
posted by desuetude at 5:33 PM on March 7, 2011

I'm potentially in.

How about Saturday 3/26?
posted by dmd at 5:55 PM on March 7, 2011

Tentative Yes, depending on schedules, phase of moon, other variables. Sunday evenings are not good for me.

Would Thursday 3/24 or Friday 3/25 work better for people? Show of hands?
posted by miagaille at 6:59 AM on March 8, 2011

Thursday would be awesome! I work weekends so no Friday or Saturday for me :(
posted by Aubergine at 10:02 AM on March 8, 2011

Either day is good for me.

Sometimes I still read your meetup threads to imagine how much fun it would be to see everyone again, even just for a meetup. Sniffle... sniffle...

Thursday works for me!
posted by youarenothere at 12:13 PM on March 9, 2011

Ok, so -- hands up please for: NORTH BOWL, 3/24.

posted by dmd at 6:15 PM on March 9, 2011

Darling, we rather suck at the regular meetups without you. Come home, will ya?
posted by desuetude at 9:46 PM on March 9, 2011

[hand up]

It'll be tough for me to get there before 6:30 pm.
posted by desuetude at 9:48 PM on March 9, 2011

I'm down for either date, sounds fun.

I have to ask: why has no one turned on the piratebowling signal?
posted by Deathalicious at 7:25 AM on March 10, 2011

hand up!

7, 7:30?
posted by Aubergine at 12:01 PM on March 10, 2011

Yes please!! I am definitely planning for there to be more tater tots than we can advisably eat without assistance.
posted by miagaille at 6:05 PM on March 10, 2011

Can people please use the RSVP thing in the right column?
posted by dmd at 7:14 AM on March 14, 2011

The earliest I could get over there would be 9:30pm since I work late but I'll gladly come out if people will still be there at that time.
posted by Diskeater at 9:53 AM on March 15, 2011

I mean to respond earlier. Anyway, I'm gona try to be there. Bowling is awesome. Tatertots are awesome. Arcade machines are awesome.

I am visiting Philly for a few days and *might* stop by if my planned dinner starts late. That area is pretty safe for walking (single female), right? People tell me to stay out of north Philly, but it seems like that's referring to more north, like around Temple?
posted by bread-eater at 4:30 PM on March 15, 2011

bread-eater, the bowling alley is in a neighborhood called Northern Liberties -- totally fine for walking around solo.

For the most part, the neighborhoods in Philly give you some warning by way before they shift into "not so hot" walking territory.
posted by desuetude at 6:01 PM on March 15, 2011

Thanks, desuetude! Good to know.
posted by bread-eater at 7:45 PM on March 15, 2011

I missed this because I was out of the country so now I'm stopping in to say I'm SO there.
posted by Tomorrowful at 8:54 PM on March 15, 2011

I used to live literally next door. Yeah, it's safe. Well I'll be there if people will actually show up this time. Besides, you all owe me some beers.
posted by scalefree at 10:13 PM on March 15, 2011

Is it wheelchair accessible? If not, no biggie. If so, I will try to curb my flakiness and show up.

To eat tater tots. I think that wheelchair bowling would be a caution. Although I have a relative who is urging me to learn how to wheelchair fence. But then you just have a light sword thing.

Hey angrycat! Northbowl is, in fact, chair-friendly - there's a ramp to the lanes. So come on over!
posted by Tomorrowful at 9:34 PM on March 18, 2011

I will! Totally awesome!
posted by angrycat at 2:30 PM on March 20, 2011

Hmmm... I would love to come, but I don't know that I will be able to extricate myself from kids (especially if they know that bowling is involved!) (and tater tots!).
posted by mothershock at 10:27 PM on March 22, 2011

I will crush you all with my stunning bowling skills. Top 34 points, bitches!
posted by thymelord at 6:49 AM on March 24, 2011

Dudes. I was gleefully figuring out how I could work this in my chair, but I was felled by food poisoning earlier this week. I'm fine now, but I totally have to get on top of stuff I've neglected this week. Sorry I can't be there.
posted by angrycat at 10:52 AM on March 24, 2011

I'm in! My +1 is in! She's a Redditer so be sure to give her lots of crap.
posted by Diskeater at 3:12 PM on March 24, 2011

Just got here if anyone is still hanging out. Keep your eyes peeled for the chap in an ameican flag bowling shirt and say hello.
posted by Diskeater at 6:38 PM on March 24, 2011

Had a great time, thanks to all. Especially enjoyed the promised tater tots (voted best tater tots by the WTTO!). I'm not sure who all heard me babbling about movies so here they are: Ink, Endhiran & Pontypool.
posted by scalefree at 10:43 PM on March 24, 2011
