Meet-up in Timonium, MD.? November 20, 2007 10:04 AM   Subscribe

How about a meet-up in Timonium, MD? As far as I know, it's the only unincorporated area of America to power starships!

We have several bars and restaurants in the immediate area of the State Fairgrounds that would be suitable. Bars include Hightopps Backstage, Padonia Station, and An Pointin Still (Irish, and they do serve poteen.) Restaurants are many, varied, and cover a wide array of cuisines...I'm thinking some weekend in the front half of December, or maybe after New Year's?

Powers starships? Is this city built on Rock and/or Roll, perchance?

Why not make it Baltimore?

You forgot about Dilithium, Kansas.

(There is no such place. I lied.)

Hey don't forget Sodium Azide, NJ. Lovely little place.

I could be interested in something Baltimore-ish in the "front half" of December if that would include 7th - 9th.

Baltimore on December 1st, you say? Why that sounds swell!

I have always wanted a meetup. depending on the date/loc I might be able to make it.

Because I live in Timonium? Because we have good dining and entertainment the equal of anything in downtown? Because downtown is very touristy on the weekend? Better parking (free!), better prices (Only if you order an artisan or microbrew will you get charged $5.00!), and better traffic (York Road is the main north south route in the county.)!

OK, that works for me. Any seconds?

I read the name as Titmonium.

That is all.

I'd be interested. Front half of December would be good. Weekendish would be better.

It's like a pandemonium if pandas had breasts.

possibly... Never actually been to Timonium.

Maybe. It is hard to leave the city limits without a car. (Downtown is touristy on the weekends? Not if you leave the Harbor...)

Also, are any of you attractive?

I've attracted a few flies in my day. I could hold off on showering the day of the meetup if that would help bring people out.

I'm interested, depending on how easy it is to reach on public transportation.

The Timonium Light Rail station is about a 1/4 miles walk from the venues cited. The #9 bus runs along York Road to the north of Lutherville. I'll consider this enough interest, and add this meetup to the roster.

If you're planning on the Stil, I might be in. But I'm way too old for Padonia Station and way too young for Michael's.

I'd come from Pikesville, but I can't make that weekend. Boo.

Flagged as insane.

Whether Timonium or Baltimore, willing to carpool from points south (MD/DC). Mefi Mail me.
posted by zennie at 2:55 PM on November 28, 2007


I will at this point declare the venue to be The Still. Anyone who needs directions or transit instructions please feel free to MeFiMail me, or post a comment here. Looking forward to seeing all of you.
posted by Fferret at 1:45 PM on November 29, 2007


Eh, so that would be The Still... here.

Since I looked it up anyway.
posted by zennie at 2:25 PM on November 29, 2007


I have poor luck with meetups, but am planning on driving up from Alexandria if anyone in that area needs a carpool.
posted by gsteff at 2:59 PM on November 29, 2007


Time in Timonium?

youcancallmeal, we still need to welcome mullacc to DC some time.

Speaking of Time in Timonium, Dec 8 is Pretend-to-be-a-Time-Traveler Day. Just in case, you know, you're not sure what to wear to the meetup. It'd be a great way to spot fellow mefites.
posted by mumkin at 5:32 PM on December 3, 2007


zennie has proposed two possible meeting times, since I was lax in not specifying one. 2pm or 6PM? Opinions?
posted by Fferret at 10:50 AM on December 4, 2007


More 6-ish, less 2-ish.
posted by Wolfdog at 12:38 PM on December 4, 2007


Then I'll be arbitrary as hell, and call it 6-ish until when.
posted by Fferret at 1:39 PM on December 5, 2007


I can't believe I'm doing this, but due to circumstances beyond my control, (i.e., a loss of a car temporarily and an obligation my wife must attend, I will not be present tonight. Enjoy yourselves, and I hope to make the next one.
posted by Fferret at 1:43 PM on December 8, 2007


Sheesh, you couldn't call Jimmy's for a taxi? I mean, these things happen, but I think it's incredibly bad form to skip out on a meetup when you've picked an out-of-the-way suburb as the location.
posted by dhammond at 4:12 PM on December 9, 2007


...wow. Shoulda staged this meetup in Sykesville.

Me and Wolfdog and ofButt and Wolfdog's finksburgian enjoyed the bacon salt.

Alas, we hadn't cameras.

Yeah, it was a bit of a bust as meetups go, but the four of us had a nice chat and some good food.
