Is anyone up for another Philadelphia meetup? I was thinking maybe the weekend of the 16th of September. Any suggestions for a place? My suggestions are always lame, so I will refrain from posting them right away.

I just moved to the Philly area, so I'd definitely be up for a metafilter gathering. Obviously, I can't suggest a place, though...

I'm in :) Not sure of where's a really good place though...Tattooed Mom's on South St, maybe?

Sure! I'm totally unavailable on weekends, though. Any mid-week evening ideas? Cheap/free would be nice, too.

(I'm not ashamed to admit that I wanna ride the new carousel and play mini-golf at Franklin Square.) Maybe a picnic, too?

I totally want to play mini golf too!

Third on the mini golf.

Mini-golf! Mini-golf!

Whoo, mini-golf! Can we get a shining Liberty Bell beacon or something to page the rest of the Philly MeFites?

When do you all wanna go?

Ha! I was just there playing mini-golf this weekend!

Ooooh! I'm definitely intrigued by mini golf and general cavorting at Franklin Square.

dmd and I will try to be there. Weekday evening/weekend are both okay, but there may be busy wedding madness that comes up.

WOOOOOO! Mini-golf!

Here's the deal:
The place closes at 9pm and it's 8$ a round for adults for mini golf. Is that okay for people? It's not TOO expensive, but still.

Here are some dates I'm throwing out: September 14th or 15th or 18th or 19th. Say...7pm? That should be late enough that everyone's out of work and so forth.

What do you think?
posted by misanthropicsarah at 10:42 AM on August 29, 2006

We will? We will!
posted by dmd at 12:46 PM on August 29, 2006

I can't do the 15th, but the rest of the dates are fine by me.
posted by desuetude at 1:19 PM on August 29, 2006

Silly dmd. Of course you will.
posted by desuetude at 1:19 PM on August 29, 2006

I'd like to attend this soiree, pls.
posted by 31d1 at 3:51 PM on August 30, 2006

So...anyone else have date preferences?

Personally, I'll be attending this event stag, as my SO just looks at me quizzically when I reference the peoples I talks to on the internets.

But what I meant was, what day in Sept?
posted by desuetude at 4:11 PM on August 30, 2006

I have an irrational disapproval for Monday/Tuesday night cavorting, so my vote is for the 14th. I'll come regardless, I'm just sayin'.
posted by miagaille at 6:03 PM on August 30, 2006

i also like the 14th.

i also call being official meetup photographer.
posted by misanthropicsarah at 10:50 AM on August 31, 2006

Oh, crap. I can't make it on the 14th -- I'll be on vacation.

What about the 7th? Or the 21st? Or keeping miagaille distracted from what day of the week it is and scheduling for 18th or 19th?
posted by desuetude at 12:00 PM on August 31, 2006

Could do 18th. If I start whining that it's past my bedtime just hit me.
posted by miagaille at 7:48 PM on August 31, 2006

Count me in, too. Sorry for the delayed response - I've been without internet for the last few days!
posted by galimatias at 12:24 PM on September 4, 2006

so, is anyone still up for this next week? or the week after?
posted by misanthropicsarah at 9:22 AM on September 7, 2006

I'm up. Let's just say the 18th at 7 p.m.

Sarah, you proposed the meetup and are official photographer; I propose that you also get "Philly MeFi" sign duty. (Because I'll already be on the carousel when you all get there.)

To help lagreen, soyjoy, 31d1, kalimac, mothershock, and any other Philly Mefites find us, here's pictures from last time.

Roll call, please? Who's going?
posted by desuetude at 9:36 AM on September 8, 2006

woohooooooo, I can make it!

Thanks for the pictures -- I don't have any (good) recent ones of me, but I'm tall, with short reddish-plum hair and if it's chilly, I'll be wearing an olive green hoodie :)
posted by kalimac at 10:58 AM on September 8, 2006

:( I won't be able to make it on a Monday, but hopefully there will be another meet up soon. Have fun, all!
posted by lagreen at 11:01 AM on September 8, 2006

I unfortunately will not be able to make the Monday night meetup. Anyone considering attending should do so - from past experiences, I can attest that this will be a fun time! Have fun all, and see you at the next meetup!
posted by galimatias at 4:19 PM on September 10, 2006

Awesome. 9/18 at 7pm at Franklin Square.

I will have the camera and a sign (on BRIGHT GREEN PAPER) that says metafilter meetup.

I will be the one looking geekily excited to play putty golf.

So, let's see the roll call, all.

dmd and miagaille.

I recommend a followup be posted.
