Anyone visiting Austin for DjangoCon and want to meet up with some Austinites? Sunday or Wednesday nights look like good times that don't conflict with planned conference events. UPDATE: This event is dead. Check out the event on the 27th instead.

April was a little crazy but I'm ready to see Austin's smiling faces in May sometime. Either a weekday evening or a weekend afternoon. Location is ideally downtown-ish or a little north and we'll be looking to replace the lamented Dog & Duck as a watering hole/munching spot. ETA: Black Star Co-op on Sunday, May 17, at 2 PM.

Anybody interested in a get together at some point before the end of October? Scheduling wise, who would be up for this? I'm open to any ideas anyone wants to throw out for venue, dates, and activities. I was thinking maybe something after 7:00 the week of the 23rd, just as a jumping off point.
So maybe you're in Austin September 16-18 for ACL. Maybe you wanna meetup downtown. Haddington's is a nice place on West 6th, with an outdoor patio and well made drinks. [more inside]
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!

As I've mentioned at the last couple of meetups, I'd love to do a Mefite karaoke happy hour at the Highball. If we go between 4:30 and 7:00 on a weekday, we can get a free room and happy hour prices on drinks. [more inside]
Team Austin ran out of gas on the white elephant exchange, but it would be nice to say hi sometime this month before the big SXSW meetup that is no doubt coming down the pipe. [more inside]
I'm visiting my hometown of Austin next week and would love to meet the Austin MeFites for the first time! Let's meet at the Dog and Duck Pub for some drinks.
Any interest? Thinking latter half of January, so folks can get their wind back. Preference for weekday/weekend? If weekend, would mid-afternoon or evening be better for you? [more inside]
Cherrywood Coffeehouse, Wed., Dec. 15th at 7pm. Come meet and welcome out-of-towner xenophile and in-towners all-the-rest-of-us. [more inside]
I'll be among the masses going to ACL this year, 8-10 October 2010. How about brunch on Sunday? Somewhere outside the park would be good, and those of us with tickets could head in afterward. I'm not a local, so ideas about a venue would be much appreciated, if anyone's interested.
