The Professional Blue Danube

Thu June 16 at 7:30 PM, The Blue Danube
2439 N High St, Columbus, OH, USA (Map & Directions)
It's late enough in the season that I can tell a Crew game probably won't be worth $25 - let's get some food and beverages at the Blue Danube!
If we go early enough, we should be able to grab a booth or two!

That sounds awesome! I can supply homemade beer, mead, non-alcoholic kombucha, and possibly sake if we want to show up a little bit earlier and tailgate/picnic beforehand. Especially if someone has a grill.

I can't guarantee May 7, as I've got a friend graduating from Ohio Wesleyan the next day.

I'm agreeable to the idea, but my schedule is all over the place lately, so I'm not sure if I can suggest a date. I'd rather try to fit a date that works for everyone else into my schedule than the other way around. :)

I think that would be neat. I can't do the 7th - I'm camping at Forked Run that weekend - but any other Saturday is fine.

I'm game for whenever. Sounds like fun! Keep me posted...

Did anything ever come of this? I'm still interested in a meetup.

I am too, If we can pick a date reasonably soon I'd be happy to come along

Would anyone be interested in dinner or something at Blue Danube or another establishment that can fit decent amounts of people? I was unaware how expensive Crew games were and my weekends are terrifying for the next couple of weeks. What about the 17th or 18th of June?
posted by ChuraChura at 7:54 PM on May 25, 2011

I take it this would just be a meet and greet then? I'd be interested in that. Something in the evening or afternoon would work better for me due to the 2 hour drive.

There also seem to be a few microbreweries in the area, anyone know if one of them gives a good tour? I obviously don't really want to go to the Budweiser plant.

I had a good tour at the Brother's Drake Meadery.
posted by ChuraChura at 2:27 PM on May 31, 2011

Ah, it looks like we can arrange a private tour on request. I think that sounds fun, would anyone else be interested in that?
posted by graxe at 2:30 PM on May 31, 2011

Sure. If people would prefer that to The Blue Danube (and someone else wants to organize it), that'd be fine with me.
posted by ChuraChura at 6:39 PM on May 31, 2011

I would be interested in either, but the sooner we do it the more likely I'd be able to come. I''m headed out to Olympia for the summer

I'm out of commission for the rest of the week and will be out of town until the 15th, so the 16th is the earliest I can gather.
posted by ChuraChura at 3:03 PM on June 1, 2011

Damn, turns out I'm leaving on the 16th itself
posted by Blasdelb at 2:10 PM on June 4, 2011

I'm catching a Clippers game with a friend on the 8th. Otherwise I am fairly free. It seems we have some schedule conflicts though. Thoughts, suggestions?
posted by graxe at 1:40 PM on June 5, 2011

Looks like I'll be able to make it after all! I'll be here until the 18th.
posted by Blasdelb at 6:14 PM on June 5, 2011

Sweet :-)
The Wex is also showing Lost in Translation that night out in their courtyard, I think at 9. I was planning on heading there that night anyways if you want to come too.
posted by ChuraChura at 9:33 AM on June 6, 2011

Yay, something to look forward to! I can definitely join in on whatever folks end up doing.
posted by Leucistic Cuttlefish at 3:46 PM on June 7, 2011

Okay then we seem to be good to go. I'm unsure if I want to go to Lost in Translation afterwards as I'll still have to drive home. But okay, 7:30pm on the 16th, see you folks there.

Oh in afterthought, how shall we identify each other?
posted by graxe at 8:17 PM on June 7, 2011

Leucistic Cuttlefish and I should show up together and ChuraChura and I will recognize each other. I'll wander around asking people if they are friends of mathowie.

Does anyone have Kelsey's contact information? I owe her homemade booze from the last meetup, and I think I remember her saying she liked The Dube at one point.
posted by Blasdelb at 5:00 PM on June 8, 2011

Dube and my diet may get...problematic, but what the hell. :)
posted by BZArcher at 11:21 AM on June 12, 2011

I've been drafted to help my folks this Thursday and unfortunately won't have time to drive down. I hope everyone else has a good time.
posted by graxe at 3:05 PM on June 12, 2011

Crap guys - I'm stuck in the Baltimore airport :-( No Dube for me - I hope I get to catch you later this summer!
posted by ChuraChura at 4:10 PM on June 16, 2011

Leucistic cuttlefish and I showed up and asked around for friends of matthowie to bemused looks.
posted by Blasdelb at 9:16 PM on June 17, 2011

I'm wicked sorry!!! I hate airplanes and everything about them. Finally got to leave Baltimore around 8:30.
posted by ChuraChura at 6:46 AM on June 19, 2011

I'm gone until Fall, but I'll be able to donate a growler or half growler of delicious chocolatey coffee-esque stout I've left fermenting in my absence to the next meetup when I get back.
