Sun August 28 at 2:00 PM, Dog and Duck
406 W 17th St, Austin, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
It's time for Austin folks to beat the heat in some indoor, air-conditioned venue like the Dog & Duck on a weekend afternoon. I'm looking at the weekend of the 27th/28th, although I could be convinced to do Sunday the 21st or maybe the first weekend in September. Venue suggestions other than the Dog & Duck welcome, as well as date requests. ETA: After discussion in the comments, we have a meetup at the Dog & Duck on Sunday August 28 at 2 pm. See you there, Austin folks!

Just so long as it's not too loud to have a conversation. The Dog and Duck worked out pretty well the last time, so I'm down/up with that as well.

Hi! I'm in Austin for the summer and the Dog and Duck is a short walk for me. I'm down if it's sometime before September!

Hooray for folks who are in! Since we have folks wanting the Dog & Duck, I'll plan for the meetup to be there. If you want a specific date/time, speak up by Friday night. I'll finalize the plan on Saturday morning according to the best time for attendees, or my arbitrary whim if nobody has any druthers.

Sundays work slightly better for me than Saturdays, but I'm flexible.

I've been looking forward to a meetup since the sxsw one at Fado. I'm there.

I'm in, like Flynn. SAT or SUN... either one. The Dog and Duck sounds awesome.

We had a nice gathering there last time...

I'm in, and I'd prefer it not be the first weekend in September. Any of the earlier dates would work fine.

Up/down/in/there -- sounds like a quorum.
posted by Devils Rancher at 6:54 AM on August 6, 2011

I'll be there.

I'll be there too. It will be good to see everyone.

Man, I'm sad that I'm going to miss this. Looks like it's going to be a rager.

I'm going to have to be outta there by about 3:30, so I'm planning on getting there a little early. I'll snag the table we had last time, if I get there first and it's available.

Everybody dress light because it's supposed to be 110 in Austin on Sunday.

Yeah, let's hope the AC can keep up.

Hey guys, sorry I wont be able to make it. My ride flaked out. Take pictures and everybody have fun!
posted by Avenger at 10:12 AM on August 28, 2011

Where do you need a ride from? If it's not crazy far and you memail me soonish, I can come get you.

It's San Antonio and sadly, it's a bit too late. thanks though!

There's one guy at "our" table, but I think we can muscle him out.

As discussed at the meetup, this is the garbage-truck ballet I went to see last night. It was less dynamic than what I was expecting, but still fairly interesting.

Why am I not surprised that Graham Reynolds scored it?

We had a great time at It. Evening activities seem to have been a great success, almost as much fun as the meetup!

Sorry I missed the event, all.

I stepped out of my mind for a few days.

I'll be there next time.

I missed your righteous ranting, dude! Hope to see you at another one soon. Quite a few "attending" folks didn't make it, but it was still a nice afternoon of good conversation.
