I'm new to the Triangle, and was hoping there'd be a meetup soon. I'm not sure if the barbecue down here in North Carolina will match up to what I'm used to coming from New England, but I'll give it a shot, I guess.

Well, it's my house too, so sure.

Sorry. I thought ya'll lived together, but I wasn't sure. Nothing like inviting people to someone else's house!

Ain't no thang. I'm used to it. I've been invited to my own parties before.

I'm absolutely interested and am happy to contribute on the faux meat + veggie end!

Indeed, I have a grill and a deck. As stated above the 23rd is good for me. And just so this doesn't seem too weird, I did volunteer to host this and you are all warmly invited. So what are we thinking . . . hamburgers/hot dogs/ veggie burgers? Anyone want to potluck side dishes?

I'll make it if I don't have a show. My May is pretty booked, but I don't have anything on the 23rd just yet. I'll try to keep it that way.

I could probably make it. I can't cook for shit but I'd be happy to bring drinks, cookies, chips, whatever.

I have to check the calendar to be extra sure, but I think I can!
posted by Stewriffic at 5:22 PM on April 15, 2009


I hope I can make it!

We are a possibility.

Oh, I'll potluck the HELL out of the side dishes.

Ok roomie Thivaia. Since I'm up the street pretending to work, we can discuss times here on the grey. 6? 7? I'm leaning more towards early, so we aren't cooking in the dark.

How about 6:30? In the meantime, if you're coming or think you might like to and have not already been to my house, memail me and I'll send you the street address/directions.
posted by thivaia at 3:53 PM on April 16, 2009


Ok. So 6:30pm on May 23rd at thivaia and greta simone's house. Memail either of us for the address/directions.

Oh. Hell. Yes.

If I'm in town, I'll come too! I've never been to one but it sounds fun. I can bring something too.

Hey, I'm not able to do any sort of organizing for a 10th anniversary meetup (moving, etc). I'd be able to and really would want to go, however! Can anyone take up the lead?
posted by Stewriffic at 6:59 AM on May 13, 2009


Something has come up and I will not be able to attend. Have fun and lmk if there is a 10 thing happening.
posted by rachelpapers at 7:58 AM on May 20, 2009


Hey everyone! Not that the meet-up is mere days away, I just wanted to remind all attendees to drop me or Greta Simone a line for directions, and let me know if you're coming so I can make sure to have enough burgers/veggie burgers/hot dogs, etc. Looking forward to seeing you all. The weather looks like it's going to be superb on Saturday.

Also, look forward to discussion of the 10th anniversary meet-up.
posted by thivaia at 2:58 PM on May 20, 2009


Grr. I am also not going to be able to make it this weekend, but I am blocking time off now for a big 10th party. Have fun all, I'm sure I'll meet you sooner or later...
posted by Rock Steady at 8:38 PM on May 20, 2009


I was so looking forward to coming, but now something has come up. I'm really sorry and hope to make one sometime!

I will be there with bells on. What can I bring?
posted by solipsophistocracy at 6:48 PM on May 21, 2009


pinky! I'll miss you!
posted by Stewriffic at 3:53 AM on May 22, 2009


Looks like I'm going to have to miss this one after all. Bummer.
posted by Rangeboy at 8:01 PM on May 22, 2009


Wish I could have been there! See you all at the 10th, I hope.

What a wonderful meetup! Thanks much to thivaia and greta simone for being such lovely hosts.
posted by solipsophistocracy at 6:31 PM on May 23, 2009


Sorry I missed the note. A friend came in for a surprise visit and I was off the internet for a change. Next time for sure!
posted by barnone at 7:30 PM on May 23, 2009


Good times! I was especially impressed at our long-distance travelers, odinsdream and partner (ohcrapIforgotyourmetafiltername).

hydropsyche said she'll get the ball rolling on the 10th.
posted by Stewriffic at 7:51 PM on May 23, 2009


And Stewriffic apparently drives faster than me, or at least opens her laptop more quickly after she gets in the house. The 10th post for Durham is now open for your participation. Thanks again to thivaia and greta simone for a great meetup.
posted by hydropsyche at 7:57 PM on May 23, 2009


Heh. I told you 15-501 was quick at night! I had time to put the dog out and feed him before I even opened up the laptop!
posted by Stewriffic at 7:59 PM on May 23, 2009


odinsdream and partner (ohcrapIforgotyourmetafiltername).
Ha! That's me! Had an awesome time, folks. Thanks for tasty burgers and lovely conversation. Hubby will be getting the pictures up shortly :)
posted by purpletangerine at 8:17 PM on May 23, 2009


Yay! Thanks, purpletangerine! It was great to meet you. Now I have to remember some of the other names. (I got the real names right, anyway!)
posted by Stewriffic at 8:21 PM on May 23, 2009


Also: glad to see you got home safely!
posted by Stewriffic at 8:21 PM on May 23, 2009


Awesome. Thank you so much everybody! Mary (purpletangerine) and I had a great time.

Here are the photos.
posted by odinsdream at 8:33 PM on May 23, 2009


So sad that I had to miss it, but I really didn't have a choice. We just bought a house on Friday, and we spent all day Saturday cleaning up, packing and moving. Lather rinse and repeat for the next week or so. Bummed I missed it, looks like you had fun.
posted by msali at 6:03 AM on May 24, 2009


Wow, great photos, odin. You're a pro - I didn't even notice half of those being taken!
posted by clerestory at 6:36 AM on May 24, 2009


Whoops - also thanks to greta and thivaia for hosting. It was really great to meet everyone, esp for a quasi-lurker. Plus - fun lit history trivia: was Frances Hodgson Burnett a Southern writer?
posted by clerestory at 6:42 AM on May 24, 2009


Hey all. Thanks for coming. We were glad to host and meet you meetup newbies! Please feel free to drop a line anytime you are in NYC! We can have a Carrboro meetup in Manhattan!
posted by greta simone at 3:44 PM on May 24, 2009


I am all for that greta. When you get there be sure to check out my favorite dessert bar. I hope you were able to snag some cake from the reception!
posted by odinsdream at 4:48 PM on May 24, 2009


I can't find my camera cable.
