Fri August 19 at 11:00 PM, Faktory
Smiðjustígur, 101 Reykjavik, Iceland (Map & Directions)
I'll be back in Reykjavik from Wednesday, August 17 to Sunday, August 21st and would love to meet up. IRL. With you lovely people. Again.
So I haven't gotten around to planning anything firmly yet, although I'm thinking that any time on Saturday, sometime late on Friday (thinking about going to look at Jokursarlon so might not get back until like 10pm that night), or Sunday morning would work best. I'm on vacation though, so let me know what works best for y'all. Looking forward to seeing you!

OK, so...Faktory at 11pm on Friday, August 19th. Let's do it.

The map is ever so slightly off.

My time is very flexible, so pretty much any day, anytime works for me.

I'm quite flexible myself, if you'll have me. How about meeting up at Faktorý for drinks on Friday the 19th? I work there, and it's a nice enough bar. We could play Poolball!

OK, sorry it took so long for me to reply. I'm trying to sort some tours out and all that. I could do Friday the 19th but late late (like 11pm late), as I did end up booking the lagoon tour. Would that work?
posted by superquail at 5:26 PM on July 24, 2011

Yeah, that would work just fine for me.

I'm also going to be in Iceland between the 11th and the 25th: Count me in!

Oh, and if any of you folks are doing anything in that timeframe that would be made more awesome with the addition of a random American tourist, I might just be able to help you out.

(Help! I saw this post and decided to go to Iceland on a whim, but haven't yet made any plans beyond this meetup!)

Neat! See you there too!
posted by Kattullus at 10:12 AM on August 5, 2011

Hey! Yeah.

Might be a little tight for me, but I'll try my best.

At some point during this evening, can we go get waffles from the waffle truck?
posted by superquail at 10:03 AM on August 8, 2011

The Waffle Truck is an elusive creature. Pray to the right gods, and it may appear before you.

Clearly, the Waffle Truck needs to feature in more Icelandic tourist ad campaigns.

I went out looking for the Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, failed, but stumbled upon a clearing with several food trucks. Just as I was about to leave, dejected, I saw a beacon in the corner: The waffle truck!

Without you, Metafilter, I would've passed by that truck and kept searching for a pylsur. And I would've missed out on the most delicious choco waffle with whipped cream that I have ever had.

(It was at Lækjartorg... perhaps it will be there again next week?)

Hey guys, this is sort of annoyingly last minute but I might not be able to make it on Friday. I will try! But it's possible that I won't. Or if I do, it will be at like...1am. I'll keep the meetup up so as not to screw with people's plans.

However, if any of you guys are free tomorrow at any point and want to get food, coffee or drinks, I'm going to be kicking around Reykjavik for the day. I'll also be around late on Saturday night.

Sorry about this, some stuff got moved around.
posted by superquail at 2:47 PM on August 17, 2011

Sure, I'm available tomorrow pretty much anytime. I have to work tomorrow, but my time is extremely flexible.
posted by Kattullus at 3:48 PM on August 17, 2011

I'm also available any time whatsoever. Want to buy a Welcome Card and go museum hopping with me?
posted by SemiSophos at 4:30 PM on August 18, 2011

Wait, you posted that yesterday, didn't you? :(

Sorry, I went on a biking tour of the Westman Isles. It was pretty rad. Hope to see you at Faktory! Do you have an Icelandic phone number or a way to reach one of us if you do make it out? From last weekend, it seems like it can get pretty packed.

And for that matter, how am I going to find the rest of you?

I look a lot like my profile pic :)

Looks like there's a concert at Faktory tonight, 1000 kr cover. I'll still plan on being there. I can be contacted via MeMail, or at 846 0170.

See you guys tonight!
posted by SemiSophos at 12:03 PM on August 19, 2011

The concert should be upstairs, and the downstairs should be free to enter. I've MeMailed you my cell phone number.

Unfortunately I was totally incredibly unable to attend. How did it go?
posted by krilli at 3:50 AM on August 23, 2011

It was nice, but just me and SemiSophos.
