I don't know how far I can crawl these days but I could find my way to the east end for at least part of it unless it's the weekend of the 29th and 30th since I'll be out of town.

I'm totally in. I'm out of town November 3-7

I'd be interested in at least some of the places; hell, it's been almost five years since my last Sharp Edge disaster, I might even try there again. I'm out of town from November 15th to after Thanksgiving, though.

I'm in as long as it's not Halloween or Thanksgiving weekend.

I'm interested, though I might not be able to crawl far. I'll also be gone from the 3rd until the 7th of November.

(Sorry to hijack, but does anyone know any fun, baby-appropriate Halloween activities in town? I have a child to dress as a hamburger and no where to take her. We could have a Mefi Jr. meetup, maybe?)

I'm interested - it will depend on what your final date is if we're available or not. I won't promise the ability to crawl everywhere, but a few look likely.

(Alison - too young for the Zoo Boo?)

Whoa! Zoo Boo is exactly what we're looking for! Thanks!

I can't do November 11th - 13th and it looks like most of the weekends before then have a conflict.

Let's plan on November 19th. We'll start at 8:00 pm at the Sharp Edge, and perhaps scale down the number of stops.

I'll make an official 'New Event' sometime today on the IRL page. I'm looking forward to a good night out!

FlyingMonkey - we'll plan another one for December or January so you can join us then.

Aw, thanks for thinking of me :) Sorry I won't be able to make it; I'll be sure to stop and raise a glass to y'all from Washington.

I'm in (and maybe will be showing up a bit early to catch the tail end of the awesome Sharp Edge happy hour)! Can't wait to see you all!

Darn, I'll actually be on vacation in California then. Catch the next one.
posted by octothorpe at 10:23 AM on October 24, 2011

I'm in, although I'm not sure how long I will last.

(I'm also amiable to a MeFi Jr. Metup at some point.)

I'll be out of town, unfortunately.

But the zoo boo looks great; I had never heard of it!
posted by chinston at 3:01 PM on October 25, 2011

Glacoun, just to clarify - is this for the 18th or the 19th? The schedule says the 18th, but your comment says the 19th.
posted by theBigRedKittyPurrs at 6:28 PM on October 26, 2011

Just to be safe, we should probably all show up both nights.

I meant the 18th here. The Friday. Sorry for the 19th in the comments.

So, hooray 18th!
posted by glaucon at 1:43 PM on October 28, 2011

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the 18th is Light Up Night. I mention it only because every year this is a major traffic fiasco for me, so for planning purposes.

We're still in the maybe camp, but the 19th would have been a definate no, so I'm glad it's been clarified. :)
posted by librarianamy at 11:14 AM on November 1, 2011

Perhaps. I'll try.
posted by stubby phillips at 4:39 PM on November 1, 2011

Yeah, I just found out about Light Up Night. I may be vanishing at some point to head downtown for the fireworks. It doesn't look like they've posted the time for fireworks this year; anyone remember what it was last year?
posted by punchtothehead at 9:28 PM on November 1, 2011

I'm new to Pittsburgh, enjoying it so far. Hope to make it.

Sooooo...has everybody already met each other in person or is there a secret hand sign we're supposed to give, or...?
posted by unannihilated at 3:47 PM on November 12, 2011

Since we're meeting at the Sharp Edge, let's plan on meeting at a table in the back. So, walk up the ramp past the restrooms and there is a back room. I'll pick out a couple of tables in the middle.

I have a beard and I'll be wearing an orange fleece. My wife does not have a beard and I do not know what she'll be wearing.

It was wonderful seeing everyone! Here is the list of Pittsburgh blogs from octothorpe that I mentioned during the meetup today.

Also, it looks like we will be having a mini-meetup for those with holiday craft projects in early December. I'll try to set up a space with more than one sewing machine. Keep your eyes peeled for the meetup proposal if you're interested.

Sorry we missed yinz. California is nice though.

Ugh, I ended up with a horrible stomach flu and am just now crawling back to the internet... sorry we missed everyone.

A mini-meetup for crafting sounds fun. (I spent today making my holiday wreath & have the glue gun blisters to prove it.)
posted by librarianamy at 6:22 PM on November 20, 2011

Can't wait for a crafty meetup!! It was wonderful to see everyone. Memail me if you would like to come to our crazy housewarming on the 9th! It would be great to have some mefi people there.

Just in case the email notification is a bit off, I started a thread for Pittsburgh Crafty Happy Fun Afternoon.
