Mon February 13 at 7:00 PM, Hashigo Zake
25 Taranaki St, Te Aro, Wellington 6011, New Zealand (Map & Directions)
It is with great excitement that I propose a Wellington Meet up for Metafilter, to be attended by mathowie, in town for Webstock this year.
The proposed dates are either Monday February 13 or Tuesday February 14 – Sunday February 13 could also work, although i_am_joe's_spleen will be back from KiwiFoo that day and it would be a struggle.

The venue is Hashigo Zake .

I’ll fire this around a few local Mefites and it would be good to see you all and get together with Matt and Jessamyn, while they are in town.

Let’s agree the date – my starter is the Monday 13th – so as to not encroach with our loved ones on Valentines Day.

Oh, sad :( still though. I've spammed a bunch of locals, looking forward to meeting you IRL Mat.

Damn. I'm keen, but I'll be at a wedding lunch until 4pmish on Sunday and heading out from Wellington that night.

Probably, but Bronwyn will be late returning from KiwiFoo too so I'll be bringing my rowdy daughter along.

Yay! Count me in. Any of those days works for me.

Sunday I am on call, so Monday works well for me.

I'd love to come on Sunday, but I'll be in Chch for work Monday through Wednesday.

Hi I can't call myself a Wellington local anymore, I am living in Auckland with New England Cultist ... would love to be there otherwise :)

Absolutely in, and keen to go to Hashi. Wonder how much of a dent we can make in their stock.

I'm attending Erin Kissane's workshop, so my preference is Tuesday, but I can probably survive it post-meetup if we do Monday.

I should be able to make it on Monday!

Good for Monday. Was there last night, it's like a delightful temple of worship for beer-nerds.

The barman told me Hashiko Zage means 'Liquor Ladder' - it's the Japanese idiom for 'a night on the town'. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

OKay the consensus seems to be Monday February 13 at 7pm and this is now confirmed. Apologies to hootenatty and Paragon.

Gonna be a bit late (ie 7:30-ish).

Hey folks, very sorry, I'm not going to make it - feeling a bit under the weather :( have fun!

Thanks to all, that was a lovely evening. Nice to meet everyone.

That was great fun. Sam, thanks for organizing it and everyone for attending, it was fun to put faces on the names I've read for so many years. Thanks again for the gifts, those really mean a lot to me after learning all about them at the museum, I'll cherish them and remember the trip every time I look at them.

holloway, after so many years of our history together, it was especially great to finally meet you.

Yes, three cheers to Matt and thanks to Sam. Sorry I didn't get there earlier.
