Milpitas/San Jose meetup, maybe? June 25, 2010 9:08 AM   Subscribe

Any Mefites in Milpitas or San Jose want to get together Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday next week (June 28, 29 or 30th)? I know there is a San Fran meetup for the 1st of July, but we'll be flying back home that day.

Husband (aka the Engineer) and I are in Milpitas Monday thru Wednesday next week. He's working, so I'm hanging out at the hotel, surfing the free Wifi and exploring the area during the daytime (so if anyone wants to get together for lunch, that's good for me, too!).

Any interest in a meetup?

We haven't had a meetup in a while down here, so I'm game!

Monday is not good for me but I'd be down to meet one of the other days.

I'd be up for that! Monday or Wednesday is better for me.

Hmm... Doable.

Though it seems I get to go to metafilter meetups so rarely that I can never find the metafilter group.

I'm in!

If we do lunch in Milpitas, may I suggest Banana Leaf?

I could do lunch Monday or Tuesday, or an evening meetup Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday...

Maybe!

Hey, we are staying right near the Banana Leaf! I could do lunch Tuesday or Wednesday, I think. Have to ask my husband, as he is doing some training and we are sharing the rental car.

Is Wednesday better?

For lunch, Wednesday is out for me, but Tuesday works. Banana Leaf looks good.

What zsazsa said. Tuesday lunch works, Wednesday does not. Banana Leaf looks tasty.

Any day/time is good for me. Banana Leaf gets crazy busy at the height of lunchtime (they get crowded during dinner too, probably because they are one of the few non-chain restaurants in town) so it's best to go early or go late.

Is a late lunch ok for most, then? Starting at 1:00pm?
posted by zsazsa at 1:51 PM on June 28, 2010


Works for me!
posted by ambrosia at 1:54 PM on June 28, 2010


Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 1 works for me! Yay!
posted by misha at 4:57 PM on June 28, 2010


Ok, it's settled, then. I've posted it to IRL!

Thanks. I'll have on my grey "Everyone Needs a Hug" Metafilter shirt, so you'll know I'm from Teh Internets.

That was awesome and great fun to see zsazsa and ambrosia again. Misha, thank you so much for lunch, it was an absolute delight to meet you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your California visit.

P.S., the corpse flower I mentioned at lunch has just started to open! It's on display here.

Yay, that was a fun meetup. I like small ones since I get to talk to everybody.
posted by zsazsa at 9:12 PM on June 29, 2010


Yes, that was great! Thanks misha for lunch! We really should meetup more than once a year, you know?

I had a fabulous time meeting all of you. I'm so glad we had a chance to get together!

I'll try to post the Official Meetup Pics tomorrow, including the Frozen Yogurt foodporn (jamaro totally has a new convert).

Pics or it didn't happen!
posted by zsazsa at 10:07 AM on July 2, 2010


Here are jamaro and ambrosia and zsazsa!

And here is the infamous frozen yogurt pic. Mine was chocolate coconut truffle/toasted coconut/vanilla with pineapple, almonds and M&Ms.

Sorry for posting the pics so late, btw. We had delayed flights and much madness ensued.

Here's my yogurt: Vanilla, strawberry tart, Nilla Wafer cream and lemonade ice topped with fresh mango & berries, mochi and my favorite cookie (even though they are no longer Officially Made by Mothers), a frosted Circus Animal.
