Weekly Brooklyn Meetup
posted December 2, 2011 2:49 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed December 7 at 5:00 PM, The Brookyn Inn
138 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Weekly meetup at the aptly named Brooklyn Inn. Pool table, jukebox, chairs, tables--what's not to like?
Well, it's cash only. I don't like that. I think it'll be good though.

I expect lots of mefites to show up at 7-ish, but I will be starting at 5pm!

Looking forward to seeing all of you and meeting some new people.

Thanks, functionequalsform, he is way cuter now that he's not in my uterus. And a lot more independent!

I will be the hell at this. Can't wait to see everyone it's been too long!

Can't this week, doing a re-recording of a podcast interview. Next week, though!

If this is a weekly thing, maybe I'll be at next week's.

I might be able to come a little late. I am really hoping to make it to a meetup one of these days. Thanks for organizing a weekly one, which should better my chances!

Excellent. I've been meaning to go to a meetup, and now there's one in my backyard!

I can't this month, but I hope this will continue into January!

I work untill nearly 8 but will pop over after that to see if anyone is there and drunk. The Inn should be nice and uncrowded on Wednesdays.

Yes! Mr. Thinking and I go there all the time anyway, so we'll be there...probably every week (around 7). I will be happily amused if other regulars we know from the pool table turn out to be mefites.

I will try to show up for a meetup on this side of the continent at last.

whir, where are you usually at meetups?

(Over) Thinking, do they let you bring food in?
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:16 PM on December 5, 2011


everyone else: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY (pretend like I said that with quiet dignity)
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:17 PM on December 5, 2011


I somewhat recently moved out here from San Francisco (to Carroll Gardens, actually, so pretty close to the Brooklyn Inn).

Naturally, I have injured myself right before the big dance meetup and will not be able to make it as I'm trying to do as little walking as possible. Have fun, everyone!
posted by griphus at 10:32 AM on December 6, 2011


I shall endeavor to be there!
posted by brina at 2:04 PM on December 6, 2011


the young rope-rider, yes, they let you bring food in

Looking at rain all day. If I get bonesoaked I may not show.
posted by vrakatar at 6:57 AM on December 7, 2011


I'll be there if people will still be there between 7 and 7:30.
posted by sweetkid at 7:31 AM on December 7, 2011


I may be there this evening (all the way from London - yep, that's just the way I roll...)!

I'll be there. I'll probably be showing up after 7. See you all later!

Woah, London! Well, welcome to New York. I hope you like mosquitoes.
posted by the young rope-rider at 11:18 AM on December 7, 2011


Mosquitoes?! What the hell?

/me races back to JFK, slips up on a puddle, and gets eaten alive by mosquitoes.

I'll be there for 5! :) Can't stay long :(

I know it's small but still.
posted by sweetkid at 1:35 PM on December 7, 2011


I'm sitting at the bar. With gin. :)
posted by Salamandrous at 1:57 PM on December 7, 2011


Is there any food there?
posted by adrianhon at 2:01 PM on December 7, 2011


No, but there is an ATM. I'm at the bar in a grey sweater or black & white striped shirt drinking a stout!

I think next time we'll start later as I'm the only person here!
posted by the young rope-rider at 2:43 PM on December 7, 2011


Oops! I'm heading up there, belatedly. I have a brown jacket and a tree t-shirt on.
posted by whir at 3:21 PM on December 7, 2011


Heading over in a little bit. See you then!
posted by defenestration at 3:36 PM on December 7, 2011


You're not belated, I'm early!

The lighting here is really flattering, by the way.
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:36 PM on December 7, 2011


We're in the back
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:46 PM on December 7, 2011


are you still there? I would be leaving now and getting there in about 30-too late boo?
posted by sweetkid at 4:08 PM on December 7, 2011


Still here will be for a while
posted by the young rope-rider at 4:37 PM on December 7, 2011


Pooped. Enjoy.
posted by sweetkid at 5:51 PM on December 7, 2011


Wow, amazing turnout! Next time we'll start at 7 officially...
posted by the young rope-rider at 6:04 PM on December 7, 2011


Sounds like it was fun! I was helping The Pink Superhero deliver MetaFilter's Christmas gifts that we wrapped on Sunday, and it took a long time. But this is WEEKLY, so I'll see you next time. :)

(Y'all should have seen the face of the woman who was receiving the gifts to store them for the kids; she couldn't believe how many there were.)
posted by ocherdraco at 6:47 PM on December 7, 2011


that's so awesome ocherdraco! I can't come next week, but will try come in two weeks. Yay Brooklyn!
posted by sweetkid at 6:58 PM on December 7, 2011


Next week

When you get home, let me know what you all think about the time/location. I went ahead and posted next week's meetup but nothing is set in stone.

I loved the venue; it was convenient and we were able to basically take the whole back area over.

I was dry untill 7ish, then it picked up and I got well and duly drenched, so I beat cheeks back here.

I'll be at the next one, drenching willing. Pray for snow!

I will try and beat cheeks to the next one.

That was fun, thanks for making it happen!
posted by Phredward at 8:13 PM on December 7, 2011


That was great (except for the part where I got drenched in the rain on the way home). Thanks for organizing, the young rope-rider!
posted by mlle valentine at 8:25 PM on December 7, 2011
