I'll definitely be there, possibly with boyfriend in tow (he's the one who introduced me to the Roost so it seems only fair). w00t!

Hey, have you crazy kids thought about driving up to Santa Barbara for next time? Or even Ventura?

I hate the damned 101.... (err, only Southbound! Northbound is a piece of cake! Honest!)

so you're saying we should travel North to SB & then never return home?
posted by jonson at 1:27 PM on November 4, 2006

Also: ebk, you MUST attend, no excuses!
posted by jonson at 1:28 PM on November 4, 2006

jonson- damnit, I was hoping no one would pick up on that.

As a side note, there are worse places than SB to visit and never return.

The Roost is the best dive bar in LA. Whoever recommended it is a stone cold genius and a true patiot.

Or *patriot*, even

that patriot/genius would be scody

heh. I've been called many things, but "patriot" has never been among them. Mary, does this mean you're coming, too?

I've been told this place is walking distance from where I'm staying. We may take a hike in the evening to watch the full moon rise (in which case I might be there closer to 7:30) but I'm really looking frward to seeing you all tonight!

reminder: CASH ONLY. The Roost doesn't need your stinkin' credit cards.

See everyone soon.

Really? Thanks for that info, I just spent all my cash on organic apples and dates at the Hollywood Farmer's Market. Must hit bank machine....

See y'all in a bit.

I'm on my way!

That was awesome! Sorry I had to bail so early. Enjoy Hawaii, Jess.

It was nice meeting everybody or seeing everybody again.

I have two photos: this one from The Roost and this one fromJumbo's. It was a surprisingly shoutoutless meetup, but we did have a very nice time at the titty bar. Nice to meet all of you!

W00t! Has there ever been another mefi meetup that ended at a strip club? I think not. Best. Meetup. EVAR. If only we could get "Isis" to join!
posted by scody at 1:18 AM on November 6, 2006

Well, that was rad, even if I didn't stick it out 'til the bitter end. Two questions:

1) How were the boobies?
2) Why am I posing like Vanilla Ice in that photo?
posted by speicus at 1:26 AM on November 6, 2006

OMG Jumbo's Clown Room?? I can't believe I sat this one out! Ow ow ow *kicking myself* ow ow ow ow

(btw scody, I was using "patriot" in the archaic sense, i.e.: 'One who finds and promotes beloved dive bars in the greater Los Angeles area." No way will I source that.)

It was great to see everyone! Hope the rest of your trip goes well, Jessamyn.

I'm bummed I couldn't make it, but making unhappy advisor happy again with me required some work on a Sunday night.

It was awesome meeting you all, what a blast. It was also great to be part of the historic 'first metafilter meetup to end up at a titty bar.'

Those of you who couldn't attend missed a lovely event, and those of you who went home early missed the lovely Isis. But hey, if you couldn't make this one, that just means we have an excuse to do another one in the near future.
