Going to be in Austin for ACL fest (Sept 15-17.) I must meet all you wonderful Austin Metafiltarians.

I'll be there. Or actually, I have tickets - we'll see if I can make it.

I'll be in San Antonio that weekend because of the A&M vs Army game, otherwise I'd come...

I'm in.

I'm here, but I avoid ACL like the plague. But a meetup would be great, hopefully somewhere out of the way like the Draughthouse, or even better somewhere in East Austin (near me) like Longbranch Inn.

And if anyone needs a place to stay, I have a couch and some floor space. Two people is probably the max, but three wouldn't be out of the question.

You lucky bastard!

i'm down for a meetup as well. like spiderwire, i'll be avoiding the acl itself.

spiderwire, what's this longbranch inn of which you speak? i work just east of 35, on 5th street, at a very small company. we're often sorely in need of an after-work drinking place that's not on south congress or 6th street.

Since I'm in the SA area right now, someone else should pick a time and place that doesn't interfere with a good ACL show.

I like the suggestion of the Draughthouse. I could bring my dog.

Ditto for avoiding ACL, as well as being down for a meetup.
I'm a big fan of both Longbranch & Draughthouse.

I am heartily anti-ACL, but I am so down for a meetup.

lord_wolf: in 501 studios?

here's the longbranch inn.

the peacock is close, too. never been, myself.

and of course there's all the bars on red river -- not technically 6th street.

(seems like most of the time i go to the longbranch inn they're playing adult swim on the TVs. i approve of that.)

I'll be there all three days (driving from Florida) with a few friends who are not on MetaFilter. So I'll watch this thread for any updates and if we can make it, I'll bring them along.

I put it on my calendar. I haven't made it to any local meetups yet. Generally you people scare me. ;)

The Draughthouse would be cool.

I'm in!

So. Draughthouse? Is that the general consensus?
posted by fnord at 6:55 AM on September 8, 2006

I'm thinking that saturday night anytime after Iron and Wine is good with me at the Draughthouse. So say 9pm-ish.
posted by bigmusic at 8:29 PM on September 8, 2006

Awesome. I'm in!
posted by fnord at 4:21 PM on September 9, 2006

Yay! I can walk to the Draughthouse. I'm going to a demolition derby in Spicewood, but I should be back by 9:00 or so.
posted by lunalaguna at 10:28 AM on September 14, 2006

To summarize:

September 16, at the Draughthouse (not horse), 4112 Medical Parkway, beginning at 9pm.

Thanks, bigmusic!
