Sat December 3 at 4:30 PM, Falling Rock
1919 Blake St, Denver, CO, USA (Map & Directions)
Hello! I'm new to town, and would love nothing more than meeting a bunch of weirdos from the internet. :) ...Update: we'll be at Falling Rock on Saturday, Dec. 3rd at 4:30 pm. Come one, come all!

I would show up on either weekend.

ooh Denver! god I've been so bad at these things lately. This is what happens when you get married to someone who shares your same active lifestyle, and then start house renovations, it kind of screws up your social life...

ANYWAY. Yes, please! I'm always for Denver meetups, the closer in to central downtown, the better (from my POV, anyhow) because I live in Boulder and would need / prefer to take the bus and not have to drive.

Hmm. Weekend of the 10th (Saturday) is our big business soiree at my work. So I guess I'll vote for not that day.

Welcome to Denver, sugarbomb.

I was just thinking that we were long overdue a meet-up. Either weekend works for me... I think.

I can make it on the 3rd. I'm going down there to visit my lovely wife, and hopefully I'll be moving there soon, so it'd be great to meet some Denverites.

Like lonefrontranger, I too, have the Holiday Work Event the weekend of the 10th, presumably on Friday. Saturday of that weekend might work, but the weekend of the 3rd is free, as far as I can tell.

Where should we have it? Downtown seems to be the most central for everyone -- we could try Falling Rock again...

I'm planning to be in Denver on the 3rd and would love to drop by, if it'll be on that day.

Either works for me....count me in

I can probably make it the weekend of the 3rd. Another vote for downtown!
posted by ansate at 9:23 AM on November 23, 2011

So, do we want to make it the 3rd? That day seems to work for multiple people. Since it's Saturday, we could do a late afternoon start...
posted by heurtebise at 4:20 PM on November 25, 2011

Thanks, NailstheCat!

I'm free at any time the weekend of the 3rd except for the evening of the 3rd itself (going to The Nutcracker, which starts at 7:30). I'm fine with doing something that afternoon, though.
posted by sugarbomb at 6:01 PM on November 25, 2011

I'm in! Someone going to confirm this? I'm also a public transportation girl so another vote for downtown.
posted by cyndigo at 12:12 PM on November 26, 2011

I think the 3rd works great as well. My gf will want to go and I believe that works for her too! Saturday afternoon downtown sounds swell.
posted by Kitty Cornered at 1:35 PM on November 26, 2011

So since sugarbomb is unavailable on Sat 3rd that leaves Friday (2nd) or Sunday (4th). Preferences? Color me indifferent.
posted by NailsTheCat at 5:01 PM on November 26, 2011

Sorry--didn't read Kitty Cornered's response fully. Or Saturday afternoon then. I'm still indifferent.
posted by NailsTheCat at 5:03 PM on November 26, 2011

Sounds like Saturday afternoon in downtown works best. As the newbie, I feel like anyone other than me will have good suggestions for the exact locale.
posted by sugarbomb at 8:26 PM on November 27, 2011

Someone mentioned Falling Rock. I went there this weekend with my understanding, wonderful wife. It seems like a pretty chill place with lots of room for sitting and mingling, especially if we go there in the late afternoon, like 430pm or 5pm, on the 3rd.

Of course, if someone has a better suggestion, that's cool.

What does everyone think?
posted by Fister Roboto at 8:45 PM on November 27, 2011

Unless otherwise notified, I'll be at Falling Rock 4:30ish on the 3rd. Any Boulderites want to catch the bus with me?
posted by cyndigo at 9:12 PM on November 27, 2011

Works for me. See you all there.
posted by heurtebise at 8:09 AM on November 28, 2011

I've never been to be mefi meetup before, but I'm interested. My bf might be along as well - I'll have to check with him. Sounds like fun!

Welcome to Colorado, sugarbomb! I can't make the 3rd but I hope to see y'all next time!
posted by mochapickle at 12:18 AM on November 29, 2011

Cyndigo: sure I'll meet you for the bus ride. Which stop and what time do you want to meet.
posted by Confess, Fletch at 6:47 AM on November 29, 2011

Thanks, mochapickle. :)
posted by sugarbomb at 1:04 PM on November 29, 2011

OK I lied. The afternoon is a little tricky. My daughter's school's holiday performance (? she's 1½) is at 6pm. But I shall try and pop along for an hour beforehand.

If anyone is staying late... I may sneak back out.
posted by NailsTheCat at 3:22 PM on November 29, 2011

Thanks, Fletch! A friend's making noise about meeting earlier downtown; I'll know if it's on tomorrow.
posted by cyndigo at 3:29 PM on November 29, 2011

Aww, can't make the 3rd. have fun all.
posted by craven_morhead at 12:34 PM on November 30, 2011

I will be there with bells on. but not literal bells. and I intend to stay late.
posted by freshwater at 3:44 PM on November 30, 2011

Have fun all, I'll be in an Nutcracker orchestra pit thinking of comfy couches, rare beer, french fries, and good conversation. Happy holidays!
posted by dr. fresh at 8:37 AM on December 2, 2011

Dr. Fresh: with the Colorado Ballet? If so, I'll hear you that night!
posted by sugarbomb at 10:40 AM on December 2, 2011

I have a work thing just prior to this, so I probably won't be there until 5. However, once I get there, I have nothing else scheduled for the evening.
posted by heurtebise at 11:45 AM on December 2, 2011

sugarbomb: not with Colorado Ballet, but with Boulder Ballet + Longmont Symphony. I love the show but don't think I could stand doing it 30 times in a month! We only do it twice which is the right amount for me.
posted by dr. fresh at 12:57 PM on December 2, 2011

boo. Wish we could make this!
posted by peachfuzz at 3:22 PM on December 2, 2011

I am tentatively in for this, and trying to convince mr. lfr to join as well (although tbh, he's a Redditor, so could be considered sleeping with the enemy...)

Will depend on the snow mainly, but if it's reasonable I'll be there!

Bugger. I left for the light rail and when I got near realized I had forgotten my wallet... doh. Since I would have had to leave at 5.30 anyway it's not worth me coming now. I'll check in on here later on. I should be able to get there by 8 if anyone is staying later.

Sorry not to meet you sugarbomb.
posted by NailsTheCat at 3:22 PM on December 3, 2011

Eh, some other time. Fister (grey hat, striped sweater) and I (green sweater) are here.
posted by sugarbomb at 3:25 PM on December 3, 2011

(We nabbed a big space downstairs. It smells weird...). I don't have a little MeFi flag or anything, so feel free to approach random people at the bar. :-)
posted by sugarbomb at 3:47 PM on December 3, 2011

Heh, something came up, so I won't be able to make it... Have fun without me!
posted by epimorph at 4:41 PM on December 3, 2011

dammit, I was hoping to join you but both the mister and I have been struggling with a head cold the past 24 hours :( Hope you guys have fun!

I will absolutely setup a meetup soon in the Boulder area, I promise! Plus if we do it close by, there's a really good chance I can persuade my better half to join.

enjoy - lfr!
posted by lonefrontranger at 4:52 PM on December 3, 2011

Anyone still there?
posted by NailsTheCat at 6:13 PM on December 3, 2011

Sorry to have missed you fine folks, but Kitty Cornered landed in the ER yesterday and was admitted. She's still there and I just got home myself. Hope you all had a great time tonight and that we'll all be able to gather again soon.
posted by FlamingBore at 7:37 PM on December 3, 2011

Although the service at the Falling Rock was interesting, we all had a good time. As several of us were discussing at evening's end, we should really make plans to meet more frequently.
posted by heurtebise at 3:27 PM on December 4, 2011

interesting...your waaay too polite.

But, yeah, that was fun....thanks Sugarbomb for setting it up.
posted by Confess, Fletch at 4:43 PM on December 4, 2011

FlamingBore--that's awful re. Kitty Cornered. I hope she's ok.

I'd definitely be up for / down with a meet-up this side of Christmas. Evening's work best for me.
posted by NailsTheCat at 11:14 AM on December 5, 2011

Thanks, everyone, for coming out! I wish FisterRoboto and I could have stayed longer, although the ballet was beautiful. I agree, we should meet up again soon.

FlamingBore: I'm so sorry to hear that--I hope she's okay.
posted by sugarbomb at 4:53 PM on December 5, 2011

Thanks NailsTheCat & sugarbomb. She was discharged yesterday after a couple of rough days, but she's on the mend now!
