All I want for Xmas is a meetup...with mathowie
November 19, 2007 6:58 AM   Subscribe

mathowie and allkindsoftime will be in San Francisco December 15-16. Meetup?

I know we just had one - and I missed it (and the one before, etc.), but mathowie and allkindsoftime noted in the Whistler thread that they'd both be in SF that weekend. So, meetup? I swear I'll actually turn up for this one.

Ooh! Ooh! I want to meet #1!

For best results, you'll need to rephrase in the question in the form of an actual plan:

1) Email mathowie and allkindsoftime to see which date works best for them and which parts of the city works best within their transportation constraints;
2) Find (solicit suggestions if necessary) a suitable venue within those constraints, noting that easy BART access tends to draw more East Bay folks like me;
3) And then post a firm plan of time/date/location, by fiat. Spare nothing but rueful "next times" for those who can't make it. Show up early, and cross your fingers and hope that others show.

As the LA crowd demonstrates, anything less is just madness catering to the flakes.

Good luck -- I'll be there if I'm in town that weekend. Haven't made holiday plans yet.

Going to San Francisco for a meetup? Pfft! - that is soooo last weekend, you losers.

Nowadays all the cool kids are hugging their DaShiv photos and rocking gently back and forward in their bedrooms and whimpering "so lonley ... so cold ... so lonely ... so cold".

....and mathowie's free on Friday evening, December 14th.
posted by rtha at 8:25 AM on November 19, 2007


Well, I am free that weekend, though friday evening might be hard to make from down here. Anyway, I'm all ears.
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 8:30 AM on November 19, 2007


I'll add that because I am lazy and a creature of habit, I go to the same couple of places for drinks all the time, and am perhaps not the best resource for choosing a place. Sadie's Flying Elephant is great, but not BART-friendly; Zeitgeist is a nightmare on a Friday (if the weather's good); Toronado is both too small (maybe) and not very BART-friendly...etc.

My first thought was the Edinburgh Castle, which is yes, in the Tenderloin, but not a far walk from the Civic Center BART station.

Other suggestions are more than welcome.
posted by rtha at 8:46 AM on November 19, 2007


I'm free Friday night, the rest of the time kind of booked.

How about Frjtz, over on Valencia between 16th and 17th - just a block or so from 16th & Mission BART?
posted by jasper411 at 9:15 AM on November 19, 2007 [1 favorite]


I'm in for Frjtz, I was friends with the owner long ago and their fries are ever so delicious. I'm coming from Marin, anyone want to carpool? Or I can pick someone up on the way into the city.
posted by wzcx at 9:24 AM on November 19, 2007


Frjtz! Great idea - I've been to the Hayes Valley location, though not in a while.

Ok. Unless there are compelling objections:

Friday, December 14th, at....6:30pm? (does that give folks time to get home from work etc.?) At Frjtz.
posted by rtha at 9:26 AM on November 19, 2007


I'm definitely free. Frjtz it is! Friday, December 14th at ... 6:30 it is. I might even get there on time.

That was the first SF meetup? I was there! I told my girlfriend at the time that my username was MiguelCardoso, just to throw her for a loop (this was around the time that Migs was getting flamed a lot for posting something chatty to MeTa like every other day). She'd never read the site before and got the idea that I was some sort of pariah. I am so old school

God damn it do I want to go. But there are too many obstacles to cross (apparently, finals are "mandatory" to "passing," and also -- get a load of this -- you have to be physically present to attend a meetup).
posted by spiderskull at 6:19 PM on November 19, 2007


It is entirely possible that I will show up. You have been warned.
posted by trip and a half at 8:05 PM on November 19, 2007


I might just show up. It's been too long since I've seen Matt's meatbeard.



Further - please note for your SF considerations: I've been feeling kind of festive and social - thus I have been considering how to invite MeFites to my crazy-fun communal studio-space for, well, whatever.

It could be as simple as drinks and open DJing on the big sound system, or as complicated as an open jam session or some kind of interactive art project. Also, our dancefloor is killer, and we've got the speakers to shake it and shake it good.

The goods are odd but the odds are good, and it's an all-hours kind of place, which makes (private) afterparties or all-nighters just fine.

If there's anyone interested in something like this - whether for this meetup in particular, or in general - drop me a message or email. Also feel free to do so if you just generally dig electronic/experimental music/art, are curious about it, or are otherwise curious about this "art space" I speak of.

O dam. Here I am honored to be listed in the same line as #1 for a meetup, and my flight won't be getting in until late that evening. I'll try to change it. ANY time later in the weekend would definitely work for me, but I'll see if I can get in earlier on Fri in the meantime...
posted by allkindsoftime at 11:52 PM on November 19, 2007


Worst case...hopefully I can still make the afters as loquacious' spacious art space.
posted by allkindsoftime at 11:54 PM on November 19, 2007


Cool. Ok, I'll doublecheck the calendar to see if there's any conflicts for Friday the 14th on into Saturday. (As far as I know there's nothing scheduled for that day.) I'll post an update when I get an all clear.

Also, if you're interested in the afterparty but don't think you can make it to the meetup itself (like allkindsoftime) then please be sure to email or message me so I can send you directions and/or info. Go on, don't be shy. I don't bite. Much. Hell, I'm getting so old I'm halfway to toothless, anyway.

Directions/info will be available only via email, phone or in person at the meet, and will not be posted within the cast of the google-light, first rule of Fight Club, etc.

This invite also extends beyond the meetup date itself. Contact for an appointment.

Are we going to DDoS the place with 20 people showing up? The previous location could barely fit that many people.
posted by mathowie (staff) at 11:45 PM on December 11, 2007


lol DDoS irl.

The one on Valencia is a lot bigger, but I'm not sure by how much. Flickr photos suggest we'll be fine as long as it is not the place to be that Friday (I mean it is because we'll be there, but besides I mean).
posted by wemayfreeze at 2:11 AM on December 12, 2007


Are we going to DDoS the place?

I was wondering the same thing after walking by the new Fitjz location a few nights back. It's kind of a small-to-medium sized place similar to a Just Desserts of the mid to late nineties. The Elbo Room is just a half-block away and might accommodate the spillover, maybe? The upstairs has a DJ and a cover, but the downstairs bar area tends to be pretty chill on weeknights, and up until peak hours on the weekends. It's not my favorite bar ever but it's still near BART and has booths and stuff. Besides that I don't know of many places in the 16th St + Mission area that are both accommodating towards bigish crowds and not already filled with hoi polloi, but I'd be interested to hear about them if they exist.
posted by whir at 2:19 AM on December 12, 2007


The Elbo room is often really loud and crowded. What about Casanova? Less popular ...

Well, now that I've found out where and when, it turns out that I won't be there. I'm starting to feel unwell, and immediately prior to Thanksgiving I managed to turn a sore throat into a roaring sinus infection, largely by, er, going out and socializing.

I'm about to head east for two weeks (on Wednesday), and I have a well-founded fear that going out tomorrow night, as much fun as it would be, will do exactly the same thing. Which I really, really don't want.

This sucks, but I don't want to get sick again, and even my deeply seated desire to assault hug mathowie is as nothing in the face of my fears.

I'll be starting in San Jose, so if you're on the way (or even a slight deviation away) I'm happy to give you a lift if you can stand my absurdly mainstream taste in music. Feel free to MeMail me.

Actually the AskMe that was posted was not about HIV at all. The AnonyMe about AIDS is, to the best of my knowledge, legit, please don't goof on it.

I am not that great with names so sorry if I forgot your name, got your name wrong, or just couldn't recognize you in infrared. mefimail me any corrections, and I'll update the captions (or I guess you can comment, but that requires registration, which is probably more work than it's worth)

It was fun. It was like attending The Last Supper or something. The afterparty probably woulda been fun too. 'Cept I handed my directions to Whir so someone could write them down. And then I turned around and they left with them.

I was there in spirit, though. :)

Photo links - awesome!

The only slightly bummer thing about the meetup was that the table(s) was sooooo long and skinny. Without dedicated shuffling, it was hard to talk to more people than were sitting right next to you. But it was a lot of mefites to cram into one space, anyway, so I don't know what could've solved that.

The IR photos are very cool - they make us all look a little dead, but in a cool way! This one's me - it looks like I'm singing, or something.

Ok. Time to drink some coffee, and then I'll post some photos.

asavage, in case any of you were wondering, is HI-larious. =/I (was that it? The "emoticon" that got invented at that bit of table? Now I can't remember.) If you are reading this, Mr. Savage, please mefimail me your friend Steve's website url, since I can't remember that either.

I didn't even get to meet mathowie! Although I shook his hand as he was leaving. Hi, again! Glad you could be there!

Also, I wish I'd spent more time talking with Lore. But I guess I could wander over to the Million monkeys thread and do so there.

roll truck roll, there's been talk about a meetup during the MacWorld thing in january. It's somewhere in the grey...

loquacious' space is awesome; it manages to be industrial and homey and slightly menacing (but ina good way!) all at the same time. Thanks to loquacious and the other folks there for letting us hang out.

Now I have to go to the St. Francis for breakfast. Photos, and the recipe for the triple ginger cookies, later. Really.

Very cool, Kim. Thanks.

Could you also prepare a seating chart real quick? I'm kicking myself for not making more of an effort to get around to other parts of the table. I only talked to the people sitting around me, and of course didn't catch hardly anybody's name. I didn't even realize that you were iamkimiam when I was talking to you! We hanged out at the bottom of the viking thread, and I was looking forward to meeting you.

Great time, great folks. Can't wait for the next meet-up.

Fun evening, it was grand to meet the celebrities (#1 and asavage) and more of the hoi polloi, hello to the folks I know from the skinless bodies meetup, sorry I missed the MeFites who showed up later and loq's afterparty, and a big thank-you to rtha for arranging the event!

My hard drive died last night after I got home, and I thought "Aw, crap! I was just in a room with about 10 people who could probably fix it for me with a chopstick and a paperclip, but by now they're probably all too drunk. Bad timing, Quietgal!"

by popular demand, the recipe for my ginger cookies:

INGREDIENTS

* 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup molasses
* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons ground ginger
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
* 1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses. Combine the flour, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt; stir into the molasses mixture using a wooden spoon. Mix in the fresh and crystallized gingers. Cover, and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and place about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

NOTES
The recipe is from a Silver Palate cookbook. I made the ones last night with blackstrap molasses, and half regular brown sugar and half fancy molasses brown sugar. I also routinely put in more ginger, especially the fresh ginger, than the recipe calls for. It’s ok if you don’t have time to refrigerate the cookie dough – they still turn out fine.

Enjoy!

That was cool. I love this city. Pics here.

Thanks to everyone for coming out and getting most of my shopmates drunk besides.

I have a couple of awards to give out.

ryanrs gets the "First in, Last out" award for sticking it out till dawn when the market opened. He rewarded himself with gorditas.

"Most Reckless" goes to Ambrosia Voyeur for going about barefoot and arguing 4 rather dissatisfied hypernerds at once about the benefits of an American public education.

Honorary membership in "Team Bring It" is awarded to ryanrs and contraption for making the 7-minutes to closing time beer run with me on foot to the local winomart, keeping it going until everyone was well and truly done.

Everyone else give yourself one for suitably impressing my friends with your intelligent and interesting conversation and refined manners. We can probably do this again some time.


I made a few contacts with folks about stuff like the internet radio show we do or otherwise just coming over to work on stuff or revisit when it was less hectic - shoot me a message and remind me.


And thanks to lapolla, Miss Lynnster and tangerine for the little sneaker-net mail and note. That was awesome!

loq, we need to continue that education discussion sometime (like when I'm finally the empress chancellor of a UC). I wasn't saying the system isn't broken, but that it can be modified to match a much more diverse set of learning needs than it currently does, which requires a national level of financial investment, and for some people (example, myself) the current pedagogies are more effective than more anarchic models. Questions of evil acculturation are somewhat separate.

Okay. I've uploaded my tiny number of meetup photos to flickr. A few disclaimers: the camera battery died, which, given how bright the freaking flash was, you're all probably happy about; I've had this flickr account for a while, but have procrastinated doing anything with it until now, so if I've done something wrong, or confusing, or have tagged or named things inappropriately, or whatever, lemme know. I hope to spend a peaceful week between xmas and New Year's uploading things to my flickr account.

I still can't quite get over how much fun last night was. Thanks, everybody! Just remember, if I call you an idiot in a contentious thread sometime, I still like you, and would still go drinking/hang out with you! probably. heh.

I'm sorry I missed the first whole shift of you, and I wish I'd made it to loq's afterparty. Furthermore, I'm also sorry I didn't get to talk more to the people at the left end of the table before we shifted and slid away, and to another bunch of people on the squishy window seat, and to various other people.

But I'm going to stop right now with the sorries. I'm assuming that we'll do it again soon, and we'll eventually get around to picking up a few of those fragmented conversations again.

It was nice to see a bunch of you from the skinned people meetup, and from various other ones ranging deeper into the past.

It was fun. I really like you guys.

With a net gun. Err, I mean, just 'cause I'd like to show Mr. Savage the space that we had the afterparty in. It's a sort of friendly invitation if you look at it the right way. Not in any way a devious plan to gain access to tools and shiny things to decorate my volcano lair with.

My impression of that comment was that asavage didn't want the MeFi meetup to become a Mythbusters one, rather than just being full of himself *shrug*. Any TV show has it's rabid following, and the meetup could have easily become a couple of dozen MeFites sitting at their table, and 300 Mythbusters fans clamoring to get autographs and pictures of the red-goateed one.

I'm sorry but that's a failing grade. I'm surprised, considering you did so well on the initial quiz (I've heard rumors that someone changed your answers after the fact. I hope this isn't true, as that is obviously grounds for expulsion). There's still some time left in the semester if you want to submit some extra credit work, and I hope you are better prepared for the final exam.

Shit! I also didn't realize Lore was responsible for the limerick thread. That was probably my favorite MeFi moment ever! I was sitting across from none pizza with left beef and famous poems as limericks! I really need to study up before coming to these meet-ups.

yep, it never hurts to stalk up, dog-with-anxiety-problem–guy!

ok, team lowkey, now I had to go look up the limerick thread. Now I'm wondering how the hell I missed it the first time, because you're right. It's a great Metafilter moment. I just wasn't paying attention.

Thanks for mentioning it. Thanks too to Lore, obviously, and to everyone else in the thread.

See, I would think a linguist surfer would be more interested in the new word for cool than anxious dogs. How's that for stalking?

I just noticed the limerick thread again because Devils Rancher brought it up for some reason. I was unconscionably proud of my contributions, and loved reading through it again. I think there was an associated MeTa and even a podcast mention about how they intended to sidebar it.

No need to read that thread, the in-crowd already knows that I *am* the new word for cool.
