Santa Barbarians - let's try again! Meet up at the end of January or beginning of February?

I'm flying out to Delaware for an interview Feb 6-8, but otherwise, I'm game.

Sorry, immediately the vision of what "Santa, the Barbarian" would look like popped into my head.

If you were all gonna dress like that, I'd fly out for this meetup.

I might... might... MIGHT be able to drag myself down from San Luis Nabisco for such an event, but the location must be very handicap-accessible (not wheelchair, I'm ambulatory but frustratingly wobbly walking right now). And I wouldn't rule out the possibility of dressing up as Santa Barbara Walters ("If you were a reindeer, which one would you be?") if it helps to build attendance. And you DO want the meetup to wendell.

This offer may expire the moment I come to my senses.

Dang, first time I'm close to a meetup (from across the continent, even) and I'll miss it. Flying in to SBA tomorrow and back to Maine on Monday.

Dude. I <3 San Luis Obispo.

Sounds good to me. I'll be out of town from the 31st-1st, but any other time works.

Where the hell were all of you when I actually lived in Santa Barbara? wendell is excused, I know the pliable relationship with time and space those SLOths have

Any particular location seem good?
posted by k8t at 12:55 PM on January 17, 2007

If we're thinking bar, my vote is definitely the Mercury Lounge (in Goleta). A distant second vote from me would be Elsie's.
posted by JMOZ at 6:07 PM on January 17, 2007

I'll second either of those choices.

Mercury is fine. Date?


(I am out of town the first weekend of Feb, and my birthday is the next weekend. If I meet you before my birthday, you're invited to my birthday party!)
posted by k8t at 6:52 PM on January 19, 2007

I think I can probably do any of those.
posted by JMOZ at 9:22 AM on January 20, 2007

Are we on? Lead us k8t. Pick a date.

Cruds. Ran out of time... How about 2/23? Way ahead of time....
posted by k8t at 6:49 PM on January 25, 2007

Sold. We have a date and location. Say, 7pm?
posted by JMOZ at 12:37 PM on January 26, 2007

Sounds good to me!

Aw, I was hoping to come to this, but the 23rd is when klangklangston's coming to LA. If you'll accept an Angeleno at the next SB meetup, I'll come!

holyrood- as long as you're ok with the inevitable modicum of LA-bashing which is drilled into our heads in Santa Barbara (which we will try to keep under control), I'd say the more the merrier....
posted by JMOZ at 9:05 AM on January 29, 2007

ha, thanks a new Michigan transplant I have some LA-bashing of my own to share, so it would not be too awful for me! :)
posted by holyrood at 10:27 PM on January 29, 2007

Holyrood! We'd be happy to have you... but since we were friends IRL before MetaFilter, would that be akward? ;)

PS, if you and Klanklagston want to come to SB for some wine tasting, that'd be fun!
