11th Anniversary Meetup June 18, 2010 9:01 AM   Subscribe

This July 17th, in Portland, OR, is going to be an 11th Anniversary Meetup. Be here or be square.

Location: Green Dragon
928 Southeast 9th Avenue

Time: July 17th, 6pm onward.
Side attraction: prior to the meetup, there may be a tour of Integrity Spirits.

We will be negotiating some sort of sponsored-by-Metafilter beer tickets / food, so please chime in here if you are planning to attend so we can get a count (hopefully we will have a better tally system soon).

this was sorted out in the previous meta.

Curse you for playing on my known aversion to squares. I guess I'll be there.

I want to go! Is there any kind of secret knock or maximum user id number criteria I need to know about?

I don't think I would care to attend an event that let just any riff-raff with IDs higher than perhaps 34025 in.

Wow, off by one. I really thought I had my number there memorized. Guess I'm out.

I just figured it was a Groucho Marx type situation: "Please accept my resignation. I don’t care to belong to any club that will have me as a member."

> any kind of secret knock

You have to be able to recognize Bender.

Can I be the hypotenuse of a triangle?

Dammit, I'll be landing at the Portland airport late that afternoon with wife & 2 kids in tow, & driving straight to my dad's in Gaston.

I don't think it'd play out too well if I bailed from my family vacation for a meetup in the first hour -- but it doesn't mean I don't wish I could.

I'll be there! And, if you're also taking a headcount for the Integrity Spirits tour, count me in for that too -- looks interesting.

Okay, I'm in. Meeting up, it is.

This is already in my calendar and seeing as such, I will be there.

I will attend the meetup, and I would also be interested in the tour of Integrity Spirits.

Awesome! The Green Dragon is one of my favorite spots, and the last meetup there was great. RSVP yes.

I am not the president of Metafilter yet, but I think I speak for everyone when I say that if you're slumming around in Metatalk then you've well cleared the bar already. The criteria, as I understand it, is:
☑ you are on metafilter
☑ you want to drink beer with other people who are on metafilter
So I say c'mon the hell down. This is going to be a really good time.

Hey, hey, enough with the beer-normative talk already! Some of us are on Metafilter and want to drink WHISKEY COKES with other people who are on Metafilter.

Hold me like the river Jordan and I will then say to thee you are my friend...

I will be there.

I shall attend. See you all there!

Also remember the road trip meetup a week from tomorrow...

Ooh! Ooh! Me-me-me-me-me!!! (waves hand frantically)

Er...ahem...sorry, got a little carried away there. Yes, I shall attend.

Sounds like the place to be! Count me in, and treblemaker too.
posted by bink at 5:33 PM on June 18, 2010


I'm in for the meetup and possibly for the tour as well, depending on timing. (Do we know anything about that timing yet?)

I think we should make this the main meetup thread. Is that possible?
posted by Afroblanco at 4:30 PM on June 20, 2010


I'm in! I'll be there around 6-ish. Glad to see that some of the out-of-town MeFites will be there, too! Looking forward to it.

I intend to travel to Portland for this (and bring along a +1), but I haven't yet booked my flight / hotel. Does that make it a valid RSVP yet?
posted by tantivy at 11:40 AM on June 21, 2010


Awesome, yeah, just keep track of the thread, we will eventually link to a gigfilter page (when that is sorted out) for the event.
posted by mrzarquon at 12:40 PM on June 21, 2010


Are you sure gigfilter will be up and running that soon? I kind of got the impression it was more of a "in the works, maybe sometime this year" type of thing. Maybe there should be memail rsvps for a headcount?
posted by Secretariat at 1:04 PM on June 21, 2010


This is a rudimentary google doc that everyone has edit access rights to, as an interim step.

I've heard from voices on high that gigfilter or something should be available otherwise, but we can use this in the interim.
posted by mrzarquon at 3:44 PM on June 21, 2010


I ought to be able to attend this one. Life's been busy lately, though, so I'm not certain. May bring a +1, but again, everything has been kind of up in the air lately.
posted by Caduceus at 1:04 PM on June 22, 2010


Me & the tourist will be there.
posted by fiercekitten at 9:30 PM on June 22, 2010


This has just gone live, so it looks like we can start checking in.
