St. Louis meetup (weekend of 3/9-3/11). February 27, 2007 9:53 AM   Subscribe

St. Louis meetup? C'mon! As far as I know it's been over a year. That one was actually pretty decent. Let's shoot for sometime on the weekend of March 9, 10, 11 (plenty of notice here so there's no need for shitty excuses). Throw out some times and places and then we can sort it out by vote. I volunteer to be a pseudo-organizer and tie-breaker. I'm committed, notsnot has committed (maybe he'll drag along Green Eyed Monster). Will pieoverdone show up (it's been way too long, you know)? Who else, who else? Eriko, Bradlands, Phat Lobley, kdern, limeonaire, crapulent, jedicus? C'mon guys and girls you know you want to come! I'll suggest NOT doing this at Erato but somewhere else that we can definitely imbibe and that also has a good selection for those of us that don't drink alcohol. Good food is a plus. What else?

I honestly don't know if I'll be in town, but if I am, I'm there.

I'm in and I work with pieoverdone, so I bet an arm could be twisted...

Yeah. Totally NOT Erato.

BONUS! I'll even toss in a free membership for the first non-member lurker that shows up.

Damn. I was planning on coming up from Rolla the next weekend during our mid-semester break. Any chance of doing it then? This is all assuming we don't get blown up by terrorism by then...

I'll be out of town that weekend. Besides, no one wants to hear the drunken "in my day" rantings of a sub-500 member.

I'm onboard with ontic on scooting it back a week. If the location allows under-21s, Spike and I would love to show up.

If you push it back a week, there's a chance I'd be in town.

Horseblind's weekend works for me, the next one doesn't.

I like the idea of Blackthorn. But I'm in for any place.
posted by PhatLobley at 12:20 PM on February 27, 2007

Either weekend would work for me, although the 10th is better as the missus will be out of town.

Any of pieoverdone's suggestions sound good. There's also Mangia Italiano on Grand, which I think meets all of the above requirements. (Plus, it's within walking distance!)

If this ends up happening near grand, I'd probably turn up. I'm not a voracious poster, but I live in that area. Black Thorn is great (and 3 blocks from my home).

Hey, I like pizza so Black Thorn is alright with me :) then notsnot won't have to do much in the way of dragging!
posted by Green Eyed Monster at 10:34 AM on February 28, 2007

Ack, I've been sick. We should consider the Silverleaf, if only because a bunch of us online freaks would scare the holy hell out of the regulars.
posted by notsnot at 7:52 AM on March 1, 2007

All of pie's suggestions were good ones. I suggest knocking it down to The Silverleaf and The Black Thorn. Make a vote, please. Also Friday or Saturday, folks?
posted by horseblind at 6:42 AM on March 2, 2007

Chalk me up for Blackthorn on Friday. I'll even wear my t-shirt from Mr. Blag's Cavalcade of Whimsy!
posted by slogger at 9:47 AM on March 2, 2007

I think either night works for us.
posted by Green Eyed Monster at 10:51 AM on March 2, 2007

9th currently looks workable for me. 10th is dicier, but not dead.
posted by eriko at 1:34 PM on March 2, 2007

The only concern I have with Black Thorn is time. The place is tiny, and even on a slow night it takes at least an hour to get your food.
posted by notsnot at 3:20 PM on March 2, 2007

Meetup is now on MeTa front page. We're gonna go ahead with the Black Thorn, since it's close to a lot of people, and, hey, Pizza!

Horseblind and I plan to be there around 5:30 or six. If we can get a large table downstairs, we will, or maybe take it upstairs to the Fred bar. We'll call the official meetup time 7:00, if you want to order pizza, you will want to come earlier - a deepdish pizza can take an hour on a slow night, longer on a busy night.

I'm in for wherever on the 9th. Blackthorn is closer to my home, so I guess I vote for there.
posted by PhatLobley at 7:09 AM on March 7, 2007

Is this on Friday or Saturday? Friday is a no go for me, but Sat is all good.
posted by pieoverdone at 7:23 AM on March 7, 2007

I posted a reminder for Friday but if enough people need a change I think it could be Saturday. Either day works for me.
posted by horseblind at 8:21 AM on March 7, 2007

Either day works for me as well.
posted by PhatLobley at 1:32 PM on March 7, 2007

I'd go - but Blackthorn gets a bit non-3yearold friendly around then, and I'm sure he'd love to stay home alone - but that's not gonna happen. Next time, then.
posted by muddylemon at 10:27 PM on March 7, 2007

Maybe come spring or summer we can have an outdoor more everyone friendly meetup on a weekend day. Just an idea.
posted by horseblind at 8:10 AM on March 8, 2007

So. Tonight (Friday), 7-ish, Blackthorn. Yes?
posted by PhatLobley at 6:56 AM on March 9, 2007

Six or seven, yes. I dont' know how busy it's going to be. I will be ordering a pizza for Green Eyed Monster and myself, to be delivered at 7:30. I imagine that I'll have to order at 6 to accomplish that. So, those that want to eat, likely need to be more like six than seven.

That's the blackthorn off grand, not the one down south on Gravois.
posted by notsnot at 7:43 AM on March 9, 2007

Okie doke. I'll be there between six and seven.
posted by PhatLobley at 7:56 AM on March 9, 2007

Is anyone else a vegetarian that I could share a pizza with? Or does anyone else want to split a vegetarian pizza?

I thought Grand was assumed (and discussed above) as the other is more commonly known as Lemmon's.
posted by horseblind at 9:12 AM on March 9, 2007

It is, but I wanted to be perfectly clear.
posted by notsnot at 9:29 AM on March 9, 2007

I'd love to split a pizza with somebody, though I typically prefer some type of flesh on it. If nobody offers to split with either of us, horseblind, I'll go for a more humane pie.
posted by PhatLobley at 9:30 AM on March 9, 2007

where the hell were all you fuckers?
posted by notsnot at 7:32 PM on March 9, 2007

Any photos up on flickr or anything, just out of curiosity? It was such a huge meetup full of rockstars I think it would be a shame not to publish photographic evidence of it.
posted by PhatLobley at 8:51 AM on March 12, 2007

Yes, as long as all the crappy pictures of me got deleted.
posted by Green Eyed Monster at 4:20 PM on March 12, 2007

GEM: I don't know what crappy photos you're talking about. I'll post them all and then you can tell me what you mean. Sorry. Been to lazy to prep the pics and upload them. I'll get it done soon.
