Philly Meetup. MeatBomb in town. August 26, 2007 9:17 PM   Subscribe

Meatbomb is coming to town. Part of the Metafilter Meatbomb World tour. (Meatbomb and I had a tiny meetup in Dubai.) Where: Philadelphia, near 95. Location: To be still decided. I'm thinking beer, and some place conducive to us. I'm thinking of Nodding Head Brewery (or possibly Eulogy, or the pool hall next door). When: Friday, the 31st (although Meatbomb might make this become the 30th.)

31st will fit just fine, can't wait and hope to see Philly represent. Rock on guys, see you soon.

Can't do Fri-Sat-Sun, but if it's moved to the 30th I'll be there.

Also consider Zot. Was pleased with them recently.

Great! I'm in. Any day after Wednesday works for me.

Hey I might even show up to this one... keep us updated on the timing pls!

30th, esp at Nodding Head. Then again, I haven't been to Eulogy (vs. the Nodding Head crew knowing my name). I might be able to convince my SO to come too (also a mefite).

Oh, nice. I can be at this one.

sweet, I can make this one!

30th or 31st is fine, and a vote for Nodding Head here. (Eulogy's fine, I'm just lazy and NH is closer :) )

I don't know nothin' 'bout no beer, but I will try to be there regardless!

Meatbomb (since he's the one traveling) is the one making the date decision here - the 31st; Friday is what we came up with.

I think we're going to go with Eulogy knowing that we can always go to Buffalo Billiards next door. I'm going to suggest 7pm.

My bf, the other mefite, says that old city is overpriced and stupid and we should go to Nodding Head. I agree. Plus, Nodding Head is so awesome, you would never feel the urge to play pool for 15 bucks/half hour.

dudes, let's not fight. I will happily meet you good people anywhere, anytime... is the consensus for this Nodding Head thingamajig, is that where the cool kids in Philly hang out?
posted by Meatbomb at 6:21 AM on August 29, 2007

ooh, it's back up for debate? Thursdaythursdaythursday.

Don't care where we go. But Nodding Head may have more room, yes?

Meatbomb, the cool kids hang out in South Philly, of course, but it's not as convenient for everyone.
posted by desuetude at 6:36 AM on August 29, 2007

The cool kids hang out IN MY PANTS!

Oh wait, I'm not wearing pants. Damn.

Sorry, my comment might have been more inflammatory than was necessary to get across my point that old city sucks donkey balls. I shall attempt to go wherever we decide.

I guess I'm obligated to show up now that I've been an ass, right?

Sigh. I'm going to cave. (still) Friday. 7pm. Nodding Head (instead of Eulogy.)

Nursegracer buys the first round (or her boyfriend does) for peer pressure reasons.

Actually, I'm buying the first round (or so) for Meatbomb and GF.


Meatbomb - I'm going to email you with my phone #, just in case.

Sweet, I'll be there.

Yay for peer pressure! *sigh* for lack of money due to being a poor, snarky college student. Meh. See y'all there barring muggings or whatever else.

Also, I will be wearing (if I can find it) the Blue Metafilter shirt, for all it's geekiness.

You all will have to live without me. Sigh.

miagaille, I'll miss you most of all.

Blah, turns out I'm working until 9. I wish I could make it. You folks have fun.
posted by ludwig_van at 6:47 PM on August 30, 2007

Looks like I will have to miss this one after all. Have fun, boys and girls!

Aww, you're the bee's knees, desuetude.
posted by miagaille at 7:16 AM on August 31, 2007

I'm sure we'll be there after 9pm, ludwig.

Plus, in TRUE GEEKINESS, I'll be able to check meta and my email (address in my profile) while there (in case someone gets lost, etc.)

mmmm, nerdliness.

Heh. I think my very favorite meetup photos are the ones where half a dozen people are crowded around a single PDA or phone or something in rapt attention, like the survivors of a fierce storm of booze and music that left a single glowing beacon of dorkiness.

You, miagialle, are the cat's meow. Or perhaps you're just a single glowing beacon of dorkiness. Nahh, I'll stick to "cat's meow."

So, I'm from South Jersey, and I'll be stopping by with a friend or two. I'll wear a Rutgers hat (red "R"). Don't know any of you, but I look forward to meeting.

You know who else was from South Jersey?

This thread is useless without pictures.
