Sunday, March 5th afternoon got the most votes (3), so that wins! Let's say meet at 3:00 PM at Civil Life. I'm open to different times if that would work better for people.
Original post:

Let's keep it simple: when the weather gets warmer, but not too warm, let's go somewhere with outdoor seating and beer. I'm open to anywhere in STL city or county. Who's with me, and how soon do you think we can take a chance on nice weather?

If this Sunday is anything to go by, I think it'll be warm enough pretty soon!

I’m down. I’m a freak who loves cold weather so I’m not to be trusted for a decision on when it’s warm enough!

That's critical mass to me. What sorts of days and times are good for people? It's actually easier for me to meet between 9 and 3 on weekdays because my schedule is weird, but since that's probably tough for most people I'm happy to try to make any day and time work.

Also feel free to throw out suggestions for places to try. I'll throw out Urban Chestnut Midtown or Urban Chestnut Grove just because I know they're good but I've been to them before and I wouldn't mind trying a new place.

Rockwell beer has outdoor seating and they also have a beer garden in Francis park that opens for the season in March.

Rockwell would have been my first suggestion, since I've been wanting to try the Francis Park location, but it has (allegedly) been engaged in some sketchy labor practices.

My vote is Urban Chestnut (either location) or Civil Life.

Civil Life has a pub? I have to go. Speak now if that's a big problem for anyone, otherwise that's the spot. Now we need dates. I threw together a signup so people can indicate days they might be interested, each day has an afternoon slot and an evening slot. The times aren't firm, I'm just looking for happy hour vs dinner:

Whoops I will be 15 to 20 minutes late but I will be there. See you in a bit!

I’ve arrived, in a dark blue down jacket

Oops again, it occurs to me we never came up with a way to find each other. I'm wearing a green t-shirt and a gray hoodie and for the time being I'm sitting at a table outside. Wishing I had bought some MetaFilter merch to wear!

We figured it out and had a great chat over a beer. Civil Life is a good spot for future meetups!
