How does a Providence/Southeastern New England meetup on Sunday, June 10th sound?

As to where it would be, Trinity Brewpub in downtown Providence (Fountain Street, across from the central library) springs first to mind. But I'm open to suggestions.

I'm there, baby.
Can I bring my baby?

You can bring any number of anythings, Dizzy!

Infinite realities aside, I'm looking forward to my 9-month-old pooping on you and yours while I pound back multiple mixed drinks, hurl non sequitors, and lose all feelings in my legs.
Forewarned is forearmed.
Bring plastic sheeting.
Lots of it.

I'd love to go but am presently unaware of whether I'm allowed in a bar or not without an ID. :P

Well, Trinity is also a restaurant, so it shouldn't be too problematic. Though it would probably be better to be downstairs in the more pubby part. But again, if anyone has a better idea, I'm all eyes.

Ooo! I want to meet some mefites. Yes. Come to Providence.
Trinity's alright by me.

They've got an awesome Russian Imperial Stout.

That would be awesome if the in-laws weren't gonna be in town that weekend. I owe you a trip but will have to miss this one.

Sounds terrible, jerk. Totally wrong coast.

Rich folks life on Power. Most of us just live off Hope.

I'm there.

Awrite! It's on. I've posted it to the calendar. Howzabout a time... does 3 in the afternoon work?

I will be on a plane to Arizona. I can make it that Saturday, but I'm assuming there's a reason you called it for Sunday.

Count me in.

Mm, I'm a maybe. PVD is a bit easier for me to randomly go out to than Boston or NYC, but I have to work CT Open Museum Day the day before and it'll depend on how burnt out I am.

C'mon, cobaltnine. Come out! I've meet so few (i.e no) mefites. And we're so damned close!

Come out and play!

It's called I work Saturdays. Every single g-ddamned one of them.

(My spouse wasn't exactly going to schedule a meetup for a time that I could not attend. Being that he is not a jerk and that he wants to keep his kneecaps.)

OH AND. Trinity has damned fine burgers and they won't card you or your babies simply to enter.

(Though your baby might have to show some ID to get a burger. I think that 2 years is the legal minimum for burger eating.)

Also, I'll try not to steal your babies, but I make no promises.

Well, reptile's all 'I don't want to go to Providence, it's faaar away*,' so if I do come, I'm on my own. 3 is good for me (dinner time is kind of too late for 1.5 hrs away.)

Er, 9 months...that's the time when they're still sleeping all the time, right? RIGHT?

*from Azeroth.

It took me several Google Map searches until I remembered that Azeroth is the Warcraft world :)

Well, Trinity, like any other place in the continental US, is across the road from a Starbucks. I can bring my laptop so that reptile can jump over the road to sate the craving.

NB: I'm going to Manchester instead. I have to deal with some photographs and some early rising for an extras casting call - in New Haven! It's bizarre.

I wish I could make a trip from Pittsburgh for this one. If only to hit up East Side Pockets and Pastiche.....

Ah damn... well, for those who'll be there, grapefruitmoon and I will be sitting on the deck if the weather's nice and it isn't full already when we arrive. If the weather's sucky or the deck's filled up we'll be inside, to the right when you go in. Here's a picture of us, so that we're easier to spot.
