Hey Neighbors!

Wed May 25 at 7:00 PM, Jupiter
2181 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I just moved up to Berkeley and I'd love to meet all my neighbors. I no longer have to schlep it up to a meet up. Weeknights are generally open for me. Who's in?
yay! So hopefully I'll see most of you next week!

As always, depends on the timing. Work schedule craziness, etc.
posted by mollymayhem at 10:01 PM on May 17, 2011

I may or may not schlep it all the way out to the east bay depending on the timing.

Actually I'm sorry about that completely unhelpful comment. Later evenings are easier for me (like 7 instead of 5). I don't care too much about location, though if they don't serve food, I'd arrive even later still. I don't know the good spots in the east bay well enough to suggest something more concrete, sorry.
posted by aubilenon at 12:24 AM on May 18, 2011

I'm probably in- though I think I might be trying to move to a new place in 2 weeks, so I won't know for a few days.
posted by Zophi at 2:40 AM on May 18, 2011

We were just in the East Bay last night, and now we have to go back? Okay fine.

Yes, I'm in, barring scheduling conflicts and such. Weeknights are generally good. I'm happy you're here!
posted by rtha at 5:46 AM on May 18, 2011

Hooray! Welcome to Berkeley! Since I live here, I think I kind of have to make an appearance. And you know, I want to and stuff...

I'm free weeknights except Mondays and Thursdays.
posted by chatongriffes at 7:54 AM on May 18, 2011

Any time after 6 is generally good for me!
posted by brundlefly at 8:04 AM on May 18, 2011

Yay! In! What rtha said.
posted by gingerbeer at 9:00 AM on May 18, 2011

oh, yeah, I'm in as long as this happens in May. (I'm disappearing on 6/1. Not permanently! Just for a couple weeks.)
posted by madcaptenor at 9:01 AM on May 18, 2011

Two more "definitely, assuming work etc. doesn't get in the way" from Pirate-Bartender-Zombie-Monkey and myself (with the first "work getting in the way" factor being that PBZM is currently on the road for work until next Tuesday. )
posted by Lexica at 9:47 AM on May 18, 2011

How about Thursday, 26th 7pm at Jupiter (has food and is close to Bart)?
posted by special-k at 9:54 AM on May 18, 2011

er just noticed that chatongiffes cannot make Thursdays. How about Wednesday, 25th then.
posted by special-k at 10:01 AM on May 18, 2011

Works for me. Somewhere BART accessible, please.
posted by gingerbeer at 10:16 AM on May 18, 2011

Yay! Wednesday and I'm in!
posted by chatongriffes at 10:56 AM on May 18, 2011

I'm in for Wednesday.
posted by madcaptenor at 11:07 AM on May 18, 2011

posted by rtha at 11:15 AM on May 18, 2011

Wednesday works for me too.
posted by asterix at 11:31 AM on May 18, 2011

I think I can make it! Yay!
posted by aubilenon at 12:53 PM on May 18, 2011

Aw. I can't come because I'm going to BE IN GLASGOW!

Sorry I'm a little excited about my vacation, but I am sorry to miss the meetup.
posted by grapesaresour at 4:13 PM on May 18, 2011

Schedule permitting, I'm in.
posted by zippy at 10:11 PM on May 18, 2011

Well, hell, if the SF contingent can make it, so can I!
posted by The Light Fantastic at 7:22 AM on May 19, 2011

I expect another meetup in the east bay after June 20th. DO NOT LET ME DOWN!

(Have fun, y'all!)
posted by iamkimiam at 12:14 AM on May 20, 2011

iamkimiam: sorry this is the last east bay meetup ever.
posted by aubilenon at 3:41 PM on May 20, 2011

The meetup's still on even if we're all anti-Raptured to Hell, right?
posted by rtha at 4:11 PM on May 20, 2011

I think Jupiter will get anti-Raptured to Hell, too -- they have beer.
posted by madcaptenor at 4:35 PM on May 20, 2011

where did all the tags come from?
posted by madcaptenor at 2:58 PM on May 22, 2011

Presumably the tags came from special-k, since I don't think the rest of us can add tags. Unless it was a mod!?
posted by zachlipton at 12:52 PM on May 23, 2011

Do the mods know about frjtz?
posted by madcaptenor at 12:55 PM on May 23, 2011

where did all the tags come from?

Mutual contacts of an OP can add tags to any post on Mefi/Ask/Meta etc.
posted by special-k at 1:16 PM on May 23, 2011

I'll follow you to the East Bay for an evening.
posted by frognuts at 1:42 PM on May 23, 2011

Wish I could be there, but I have plans tomorrow. Congrats on finding a place.
posted by danny the boy at 11:55 AM on May 24, 2011

Drat! Something came up and now I'm not going to be able to make it.

Have fun anyway, I guess!
posted by aubilenon at 2:17 PM on May 24, 2011

It won't be nearly as much fun without you, aubilenon, but we'll do our best.
posted by gingerbeer at 8:37 PM on May 24, 2011

There is an outside chance that Jenn and The Scrobbler will make an appearance. Since she scrobbles after 7pm, it's only an outside chance (7pm is bedtime routine time, yo).

I will likely be there no matter what.
posted by iamabot at 10:21 PM on May 24, 2011

Boo on aubilenon not being able to make it!

Yay for iamabot being able to make it!
posted by rtha at 6:19 AM on May 25, 2011

Unfortunately PBZM is still feeling a bit fried from being on the road and it doesn't look like we'll be able to make it. Next time!
posted by Lexica at 10:22 AM on May 25, 2011

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
posted by chatongriffes at 1:23 PM on May 25, 2011

me too!
posted by special-k at 1:36 PM on May 25, 2011

I've got rehearsal until 10 or 11 tonight. Boooo. Stupid opera.
posted by mollymayhem at 3:10 PM on May 25, 2011

aw, i saw this one a little too late. it's just down the street from me! have fun tonight, everyone.
posted by cognitio at 5:01 PM on May 25, 2011

Has anyone else noticed that you never see sambo and brundlefly at the same time? Thats a little suspicious, isn't it?
posted by sambosambo at 5:35 PM on May 25, 2011 [3 favorites]

We will be there early, btw, to see if we can fool our 7 month old in to staying tolerable for a little while longer,
posted by iamabot at 6:13 PM on May 25, 2011

Hey all, I just came here after work so I've staked out a couple tables on the patio. Turn left from the fire pit. I'm in purple.
posted by chatongriffes at 6:29 PM on May 25, 2011

We are inside just right of the front door. Will join you guys shortly
posted by iamabot at 6:52 PM on May 25, 2011

On BART and on our way.
posted by rtha at 6:55 PM on May 25, 2011

Were moving tables. Will update soon.
posted by special-k at 6:58 PM on May 25, 2011

Were right behind the hostess desk. Two big tables.
posted by special-k at 7:04 PM on May 25, 2011

I read that as right behind the hostages.
posted by iamabot at 7:51 PM on May 25, 2011

Can someone drink a pint with my name on it? Oh man, a beer sounds lovely right about now.
posted by mollymayhem at 8:48 PM on May 25, 2011

We shot the hostages.

Wait, what?

I'm sorry - I meant, we have given the hostages shots.

I mean.


I think I had your beer, Molly.
posted by Pronoiac at 9:49 PM on May 25, 2011

No mefites were harmed.
posted by iamabot at 10:40 PM on May 25, 2011

Unless by "harmed" you mean "had a lot of fun," in which case, I was severely harmed!

Btw, fake is moving here soon, so in addition to the various iamkimiam meetups, and the farewell meetup(s) for the 'bots, we have a "welcome, fake!" meetup to look forward to.

Btw, fake is moving here soon,

Yeah! I ran into him at Maker Faire last weekend.
posted by special-k at 11:08 AM on May 26, 2011

It was so great to see everyone! Mefites are the best.
posted by chatongriffes at 12:46 PM on May 26, 2011

Sounds like ya'll had a ball! Man, I wish I could have made it. I had a really crappy day at work and simply was not feeling up to being social.
posted by brundlefly at 8:29 PM on May 26, 2011

We certainly missed you. Give me a shout if you want to get together some other time. I can rustle up a few other mefites (at least one other local) on really short notice.
