Atlanta Meetup April 11, 2007 12:50 PM   Subscribe

Anyone interested in an Atlanta, GA meet-up? I recently moved from an area with no local MeFites so it would be nice to finally meet some members.

That would be neat. I've never been to a meetup.

I'd be game, if I am within 300 miles. :)

I'd love to come.

I'd be interested, work schedule permitting.

I could come.

Any ideas on a good place to meet?
posted by studentbaker at 7:38 PM on April 11, 2007

Shit yeah!

The Brick Store Pub!!! Awesome doesn't even begin to describe that place. It's one of the three reasons I moved to ATL.

I'm down and absolutely agree with the Brick Store as a meeting place. Tasty tasty beer.

Sounds good to me. Brick Store Pub is the place, now we just need a time. I'll throw out Saturday the 21st at 5pm. I'm open to suggestions. What works best for you guys? Sooner or later? Weekends? Weekdays after work?
posted by studentbaker at 5:36 AM on April 12, 2007

I am biased because I work here but Manuels has a nice beer list now and plus I work the back bar every other Sat. and its actually in Atlanta rather than Decatur. However, Brickstore is mighty awesome and if it falls on a Sat. I don't work, I can be there.

stormygrey, is the 21st a Saturday you are off?
posted by studentbaker at 9:25 AM on April 12, 2007

No, I am working on the 21st, but don't change the plans for the majority for me.
posted by stormygrey at 10:35 AM on April 12, 2007

That's cool. stormygrey, can you email me when you get a chance?
posted by studentbaker at 11:22 AM on April 12, 2007

Don't forget to put this in the meetup sidebar.
posted by stormygrey at 12:25 PM on April 12, 2007

I'll be at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA on Saturday the 21st at 5pm if any other MeFites want to join me. If no one shows up by 6pm I'll be out the door and on my way to Manuel's to buy a brew from stormygrey.
posted by studentbaker at 1:42 PM on April 12, 2007

Oh boy. I'd like to come. I'll have to check back a bit later though.
posted by GalaxieFiveHundred at 2:45 PM on April 12, 2007

But how will we identify each other?

posted by TheNewWazoo at 8:52 PM on April 12, 2007

I'll bring a Metafilter sign and place it on my table all fancy like.
posted by studentbaker at 4:29 AM on April 13, 2007

What's the parking like at this place?
posted by solotoro at 5:18 AM on April 13, 2007

BrickStore Pub is in downtown Decatur, so there is typical downtown oriented street parking, just drive till you find a spot.

They are opening a BrickStore in my neck of the woods very soon, which I am wicked excited about.
posted by stormygrey at 6:08 AM on April 13, 2007

As I am preparing to put up a show (theatre, Much Ado About Nothing, y'all come see us now . . . ) I probably won't be able to make it, but otherwise I'd be up for some Brick Store in nothing flat.

MM, you're of the Shakespear tavern? I just saw Love's Labour's Lost and loved it!

I love MeFi + ATL! :)
posted by TheNewWazoo at 10:29 PM on April 13, 2007

Also, it's very, very near the Decatur MARTA station. As in, in the same square. Just follow the raucous jubliation.
posted by TheNewWazoo at 6:51 PM on April 15, 2007

Any Birmingham-area MeFites wanna carpool? I'll drive, I just want some company, as it will take me close to 3 hours to get there.
posted by BitterOldPunk at 8:02 AM on April 16, 2007

Sorry, I’m a little confused—is the location confirmed? I’d probably be able to come to either place, but given the option, I’d choose Manuels since it’s only about 3 miles from my home.

I do hope this pans out. I tried to organize a meetup a while back and nothing came of it.
posted by ijoshua at 5:20 PM on April 16, 2007

Yes, Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA on Saturday the 21st at 5pm.
posted by studentbaker at 7:13 PM on April 16, 2007

...and if you get bored with BrickPub come on down to Manuels.
posted by stormygrey at 6:31 AM on April 17, 2007

Great. I can do the 21st. Count me in.
posted by GalaxieFiveHundred at 8:29 AM on April 17, 2007

stormygrey, i'm at mannie's every week - tuesday nights. small world.

I'm another (mostly lurker) that might see y'all saturday at Brick Pub!

Here’s a map showing the location of Brick Store and Manuel’s.

How did this go, all? I wasn't able to make it, alas.
posted by TheNewWazoo at 11:44 AM on April 22, 2007

Only a few showed, but a good time was had by all of those few. I hope. It's possible some folks headed over to Manuel's as well, since our signbearer was a bit late. So to anyone who showed up early and left: honest, there were actually people there, you weren't stood up!
Alas, no pictures.
posted by solotoro at 8:11 AM on April 23, 2007

Ah, so you guys were there. I was there a bit after 5 but didn't notice anyone so I took off. Of course, I only made the most cursory of inspections. Oh well, maybe another time.
posted by GalaxieFiveHundred at 10:35 AM on April 23, 2007

I apologize to any who showed on time and left before I got there with my fancy sign. Sorry, GalaxieFiveHundred. I misjudged my travel time and showed up 20 minutes late. It was very nice to meet those that did manage to find me. There was some talk about another meet-up for a beer fest in May. I’ll leave it up to others to organize that as my meet-up skillz are weak.
posted by studentbaker at 11:02 AM on April 23, 2007

I was there. It was a good time. That was my first time at the Brick Store, but I’ll definitely go back again.

I’m going to wait to post this to the MeTa front page until a little closer to the date, but I’m going to try to call ya’ll out for the East Atlanta Beer Fest on 13 May.
posted by ijoshua at 11:18 AM on April 23, 2007

Oops, that was last year’s site, I guess. This year, the EABF is on 12 May.
