Mefites in Richmond? June 6, 2010 4:18 PM   Subscribe

Richmond, VA meetup?

I just moved from DC. I don't know a lot of people. Are there ever mefi meetups down here?

I live in Fredericksburg. I'd make the 1 hour drive South for a meetup.

And I'd be interested in going to a meet up.

I live in C'ville, also about an hour away. Maybe I can come.
It looks like there've been a couple - but not since '07.

I'm in. There was a 10th-anniversary MeFi meetup last year. We met at Café Gutenberg.

My wife and I recently (well, 7 months ago) moved to Roanoke (190 miles away from Richmond) and am interested.

I'm up for one in principle, although I'm going to be out of town for essentially the rest of the month. Could do something in July though.

I would like to suggest Mekong as the meetup place. They have an awesome beer selection and great food. Lots of vegan, vegetarian and meat options to please everyone. It's been one of my favorite places for years.

I'm in. MaryD, great choice.

We definitely did have a 10th anniversary meetup, but there were only four of us in attendance.

My summer is a little up in the air right now, but depending on when it is, I might be able to make it.

I'll be there in spirit.

Missing RVA a lot lately.

I'm a wimp.

I'm in Williamsburg, but make it in to Richmond with some frequency, and came to a meetup ages ago (hi emelenjr, lalalana, and rainbaby, and anyone else I'm forgetting).

I'd definitely be interested in this.

I'm in Roanoke too and would be interested depending on when y'all have it.

C'ville here. Might be up for this if the timing works out.

I'm up for any day, so if the people with scheduling conflicts want to pick the day it's fine with me.

How does July 10 work for everybody?
posted by strangely stunted trees at 10:34 AM on June 8, 2010


July 10 looks like it will work for me.
posted by COD at 11:12 AM on June 8, 2010


That works for me.
posted by emelenjr at 11:17 AM on June 8, 2010


Works for me :)

Excellent! What time?
posted by emelenjr at 7:18 AM on June 10, 2010


We'll be in NC that week --- have a great time everyone, Mekong looks excellent!
posted by headnsouth at 7:23 AM on June 10, 2010


oh man i have to pick a time, too?
posted by empath at 9:12 AM on June 10, 2010


7:00. There. I picked a time. Does that work for anyone?

I'll be there in spirit.

Same here. Cheers from Tokyo!

7 PM is fine - it's on my calendar.
posted by COD at 6:04 AM on June 11, 2010


I will be there. We should get a head count and make a reservation though. Doesn't have to be too far an advance, the day before or the same day will work. Just to give them a heads up and have a table ready for us.
posted by MaryDellamorte at 4:42 PM on June 12, 2010


Sounds like fun. Count me in.
posted by QuantumMeruit at 9:19 AM on June 15, 2010


I'm a "probable" for this at the moment.
posted by Wolfdog at 2:31 PM on June 15, 2010


I'm a "likely." Yay!
posted by Alt F4 at 8:04 PM on June 15, 2010


I wanna play.

aaarrrggghhhh i will be out of town. next time!
posted by tarantula at 1:41 PM on June 23, 2010


If we're taking a headcount, I'm still a "yes".
posted by strangely stunted trees at 9:21 AM on July 6, 2010


So let's see.

If I'm reading this right, we have "yes" from:
empath
MaryDellamorte
COD
QuantumMeruit
strangely stunted trees
emelenjr
john m

And "likely" from:
Wolfdog
Alt F4

Sounds like a reservation for nine, then? Anybody I'm missing?
posted by strangely stunted trees at 7:57 AM on July 8, 2010


A solid "maybe" from me and my wife leahpeah, have to see how this week shakes out.
posted by artlung at 8:02 AM on July 8, 2010


I'm not going to make it.
posted by nangar at 8:25 AM on July 8, 2010


I'm still planning to be there, barring anything unforeseen.
posted by Wolfdog at 9:50 AM on July 8, 2010


I'm still planning on making it.

Hey, friends. Looks like I'm going to have to bow out. We have some out-of-town guests coming for the weekend, and it would be poor form for me to disappear Saturday night.

I'm sorry I can't make it. Have a great time, and thanks, empath, for getting the ball rolling on this.
posted by Alt F4 at 8:49 PM on July 8, 2010


I'm still in. Has anyone made a reservation yet? s.s. trees?
posted by emelenjr at 9:34 AM on July 9, 2010


I'm actually going to be a maybe.
posted by MaryDellamorte at 5:17 PM on July 9, 2010


I have not made a reservation yet, and somebody else probably should go ahead and do it, because I doubt I'll have a chance to until pretty late in the day tomorrow.
posted by strangely stunted trees at 10:42 PM on July 9, 2010


I made a reservation for 10 people under the name Marshall. I told An that we may be a couple more or less, and he said that would be fine. See everyone at 7:00.
posted by emelenjr at 1:13 PM on July 10, 2010


Looking forward to seeing y'all there in a couple of hours.
posted by QuantumMeruit at 2:02 PM on July 10, 2010


Ok I'm definitely coming and bringing a friend along.
posted by MaryDellamorte at 2:04 PM on July 10, 2010


I was having too much fun and didn't get around to taking any pictures. Great turnout this time—only one MeFite I recognized from past meetups (QuantumMeruit.) MaryDellamorte and a friend were there (sign that guy up pronto—he'll fit right in) along with COD and strangely stunted trees.

Empath, wish you could have made it. Hope you weren't hidden in some corner by yourself wondering where everyone was!
posted by emelenjr at 7:10 PM on July 10, 2010


I had a great time meeting everybody. Thanks for organizing it.
posted by COD at 7:35 PM on July 10, 2010


Sorry guys, I was actually on call last weekend and couldn't make it out of the house :(
