Denver Meetup Redux June 16, 2007 10:07 PM   Subscribe

DENVER (and Boulder) Metafilter MeFites will once again be gathering to drink libations and act smart. We could really use some help.

That was so much fun last time that we had a meetup that we simply must get together again soon.
I propose one of the following Saturday nights: June 30th, July 7th, or July 14th. I also suggest that we keep the location downtown (and accessible by RTD) since that seems to keep the streets of our fair cities much safer. Post here (or shoot me an email metafieldtrip at gmail dot com) and let me know whether any of these dates work for you. Also watch the sidebar meetup calendar thing for when we settle on a date. Cheers!

How convenient; I just moved to Denver. All of those dates work for me. I look forward to my first MeFi meetup.

I'm more than game for June 30th or July 7th.

Can't wait to see all of you again. :-)

Scottreynen: Welcome to town! I look forward to meeting you. You need anything? 1/2 cup of milk? Directions to the closest library, pub, or discount pharmacy? Just ask.

-t: It has been too long! looking forward to seeing you.

hi! any of those dates work for me, and there's a good chance i'll already be in downtown on the 30th for an alleycat race anyway.

hi -t! love to see you all again!

...? obviously its too early in the morning for me, my macbook, or metafilter. maybe all three.
posted by lonefrontranger at 5:30 AM on June 17, 2007

I would push for the 30th
posted by fourstar at 8:41 AM on June 17, 2007

Awesomeness! I'll be checking back for a date - the 30th sounds great! Any ideas on where to grab the drinks?
posted by salsamander at 9:04 AM on June 17, 2007

Fourstar and Salsamander: Are you saying that you can only make the 30th? I'm keeping score here it might come down to the wire:)

Salsamander: Last time we met at the Falling Rock Taphouse in LoDo. I was skeptical but it turned out to be a great location--comfy chairs and couch and something like a bazillion different beers. We certainly could try somewhere else but it was very convenient for the half of us who came in by RTD so if we could keep the location down there somewhere?

fieldtrip: for me, the 30th is the only definite day I can make it, but please don't place undue weight on my availability
posted by fourstar at 12:05 PM on June 17, 2007

hmmm. Any of those dates are a possibility for us, hopefully we can make it.
posted by Kimberly at 12:28 PM on June 17, 2007

I'd like to try and make it. But I can't on the 30th -- I'll be in California. I'm not sure on the 7th; I might be back from Cali. On the 14th I could make it.
posted by teece at 12:36 PM on June 17, 2007

The 30th is simply a preference - it's the day after payday!
posted by salsamander at 5:57 PM on June 17, 2007

I've never met Metafilter mates up close...I'm game for any one of those dates. Sounds fun!

i will be on the colorado trail camping (read: offline) until the 26th. fieldtrip, lemme know what's decided.
posted by lonefrontranger at 4:07 PM on June 18, 2007

All days and dates work for me -- looking forward to it. Although sooner often = better.
posted by NailsTheCat at 5:11 PM on June 19, 2007

I should be able to make any of those dates. I just made it through the pics from last time and I agree that Falling Rock looks like a great place (I haven't been there myself).
posted by dr. fresh at 12:07 PM on June 20, 2007

I've never had facetime with mefites either. I'm in the Springs, but may be able to make it up to DEN.

DENVER MEETUP SATURDAY, JUNE 30TH!!!!! at the Falling Rock Taphouse, 1919 Blake Street in LoDo, Denver, 7:30 p.m. until they run out of beer!

NailsTheCat is correct: sooner is better!

And, it just so happens that is the day that works best for the most of us. I'm very sorry teece.

craven_morhead: I do hope that you can make it. I'm sure that a C. Springs MeFite will have much to add to our already lively discussions!
posted by fieldtrip at 10:41 PM on June 21, 2007

I should be in town; it's the day after my arraingment. How shall I find everyone (other than just roaming the floor, yelling metafilter? METAFILTER?!? METAAAAAAAAFIIIIIIILTER!?!
posted by craven_morhead at 9:03 AM on June 22, 2007

That's a fair point craven. I drank 5 (ok 1) pints on my own before I found the MeFi group last time. And subsequently became a drunken mess prematurely -- clearly not my fault.

You do have the advantage of photos from the last meetup -- you can study and commit Mefites' faces to memory. If I remember... I shall bring a wee sign to place on the table(s).
posted by NailsTheCat at 11:31 AM on June 22, 2007

where are these photos you speak of?
posted by craven_morhead at 12:13 PM on June 22, 2007

aaaaaaaaaand I'm dumb.

I sees them now.
posted by craven_morhead at 12:15 PM on June 22, 2007

of course, the internet overlords at work block flickr
posted by craven_morhead at 12:16 PM on June 22, 2007

You will find us on the comfy chairs! Well, unless we can't score the comfy which case we will be nearby the comfy chairs. I will also try to remember to bring signage.
posted by fieldtrip at 10:49 PM on June 22, 2007

Most excellent. I will definitely be there, especially since I missed it last time.
posted by id at 9:20 AM on June 23, 2007


...or not.

it occured to me that other mefi meetups have those cute little pre-made signs and stuff. i wonder if there be a source... i would show examples but flickr appears to be having a massage.

yeah... i'm real real poor. yay for being a student.

koeselitz plans to be there and he reeeeeeally like beer.

oboy oboy oboy i can't WAIT to meet all the new faces!
posted by lonefrontranger at 8:10 PM on June 29, 2007

we ALL realllly like beer! Or, at least I do. I'm looking forward to seeing you all.
posted by fieldtrip at 11:25 PM on June 29, 2007

My head hurts.
posted by -t at 8:42 AM on July 1, 2007

Bleargh. What is it with MeFites that makes me feel so bad after meeting them?
posted by NailsTheCat at 9:22 AM on July 1, 2007

i gave the photos a go, hopefully I did ok. I think I scored at least 60%. After an experiment, I'm not sure what is worse: waves of oppressively indistinct BASS before a hangover, or walking behind a lawnmower after/during one.
posted by dr. fresh at 10:44 AM on July 1, 2007

More photos. Quality is somewhat lacking, the camera-phone being what it is. Some of us don't have the faaaaanncy camera. ;-)

Now with bonus ugly baby joke!
posted by -t at 12:48 PM on July 1, 2007

Wish I'd been there. For the ugly baby joke, if nothing else.
posted by gregor-e at 5:12 PM on July 1, 2007

Yeah, sorry i missed it. Roomie is leaving and we had a BBQ in the springs. However, I was with you in spirit. And drinking beer.
posted by craven_morhead at 12:09 PM on July 2, 2007

In pure slacker fashion, here are the pix from my camera...
posted by fieldtrip at 10:15 PM on July 4, 2007

Looks like it was a lot of fun, I can't make it to these at all anymore. I work graves and weekends. (sigh)

Do these people have names, perchance?
