I don't live in NE Ohio anymore, but I'd still like to suggest La Cave du Vin as a meetup spot.

How about a Saturday or Sunday afternoon at the Cleve Art Museum? Then Cave du Vin or somesuch?

I don't think the Cleveland Museum of Art has much to see right now. Didn't they move the permanent collection during construction?

If we want to do it this weekend, Sunday works best for me. Maybe we could do a MeFites at the Zoo this Sunday, October 2nd?

I'm amenable to anything. We could head on over to Coventry for the Wine Cellar, or Market Avenue Wine Bar in Ohio City. If we want food, maybe Fulton Bar and Grille or The Grovewood Tavern? If stuart_s has a place he's been wanting to eat at, maybe we could go there...

Sounds good, mr squirrel. Should "we" send out e-mails to MeFites/MoFites/MeChatters who might not see this thread? In my MeFi profile alone I now see a rise in area peeps, up to 21:

Yeah, I saw that a couple of new folks had signed up, which is why I decided to put out the message. I'll send emails to people with user numbers higher than yours...sound good?

Heh! I have a much lower user# I never use.

Um, not that high/low means anything ;-) It's nice we never hear the "This from someone with a [very recent] user #!?" comment anymore.

Sho'nuf. I'll start sending emails then.
posted by sciurus at 12:47 PM on September 26, 2005

I don't have my email address in my profile but I'm interested in the meetup... Are you going to keep posting the plan here? Or Sciurus, if you're getting an email list going with meetup info, let me know and I'll send you my addy.

I live in Cleveland, but meetups scare me. There. I admit it.
posted by ferociouskitty at 6:20 PM on September 26, 2005

Me too, ferociouskitty... I enjoy my anonymity. However, I am intrigued. Would anyone object if I wore a mask?
posted by amro at 6:28 PM on September 26, 2005

I was actually thinking of sending a proxy.
posted by ferociouskitty at 7:33 PM on September 26, 2005

They are totally laid back and often involve tasty food. I vouch for Shane and stuart_s and googly and picklebird. Now, if only someone could vouch for me...

amro, we'll keep posting info here as it gets settled, but if you want an email go ahead and send me a missive.

ferociouskitty, don't be a 'fraidy cat! You don't have to send a proxy, but you are more than welcome to bring a good friend with you. Anyway, maybe we'll get more details tomorrer.

Adam's very cool, Cleve meetups are always laid-back and totally amiable, and no personal details of any "anonymous" MeFites will be shared on MeFi without your consent! We'll even keep you out of pics/shoutouts if you want.

Fear not, but for the Jabberwock.

I'm down with a meetup. Maybe a BYO picnic in Tremont Park and drinks at a local pub after that?
posted by StephenV at 10:57 AM on September 27, 2005

I added this meetup to the MetaFilter group on Upcoming.org.

I'm planning to attend.

Fulton Bar and Grill would be perfect. Grovewood Tavern would be great, too. I was so eager to start looking for a good location that I didn't even notive that sciurus suggested these. But they were exactly the two I chose independently.

Grovewood isn't centrally located in Cleveland but I plotted out some of those zips and our membership isn't even remotely evenly distributed. There isn't a single member West of Ohio City. So, Grovewood is actually a good option geographically. I think the Fulton Bar is, too.

I don't think that we can go wrong with either one. Maybe it will come down what else the respective neighborhoods have to offer and I'm afraid I can't add much to that conversation.

Ah, I spend much time at the Fulton. A fine establishment.
posted by amro at 4:20 PM on September 27, 2005

Did "we" post this to MonkeyFilter?

Let me know when everyone decides on a place, eh?

Is there a plan?

A week later .. nada. What gives?
posted by bhance at 8:03 AM on October 5, 2005

Are there any Mefites in Wooster?
