San Antonio and Austin meetup December 29, 2007 9:54 PM   Subscribe

Austinites and San Antonians UNITE! Let's have a meetup in San Marcos on the 2nd of Feb.

Where should we meet?

Ugh. Why, for outlet shopping? Is there other stuff to do in San Marcos?

Couldn't we just do a home-and-home deal for two consecutive meetups? I have classes and literally about 3 or 4 hours of free time a week.

Near San Marcos is Gruene and the Gristmill (and Greune Hall).

I didn't mean to get all negative there. I would like to stop by, but given my schedule, anything further than a few blocks away is problematic. Let's try to come up with somewhere well in advance, I guess.

San Marcos would be a good compromise for San Antonio and Austin.

Let's all get wetsuits and tube the Guadalupe river.

I'll be very new to the area, so I'm all for meeting as many people as possible.

There is a lot more to do in San Marcos than go to the outlet mall, but most of it is outdoorsy. Gristmill is tasty, but was kinda pricey last time I went.

I am game for the 2nd.

I'm not sure if I can make the 2nd, but this sounds fun.

I met someone from San Marcos this weekend and they recommended Showdown Saloon.

They have Abita and Frito pie. Sold.

The Showdown Saloon sounds good. I can't believe how large the menu is.
posted by bigmusic at 8:49 PM on January 1, 2008

Oh, I was wondering if it was affiliated with the Showdown in Austin. Neato. Can we have a showdown while we're there?

I think likesuchasand and I are in!

You had me at Frito pie.

Rats, I'll be in Houston. Have fun, guys!

I probably won't have my car by then, so any Austinite willing to give me a ride will get either gas money or a free meal. Thanks!

Nevermind, got a friend with a car who's coming with me!
posted by lychee at 5:07 PM on January 15, 2008

We'll be there!

Unless we're still moving house. Hope not to be!
posted by SaintCynr at 10:27 AM on January 16, 2008

I'll be there? What time? And will more than 2 people show up this time? (Not that I don't love bigmusic)
posted by muddgirl at 6:22 PM on January 23, 2008

(And I can give a ride to anyone from San Antonio)
posted by muddgirl at 6:22 PM on January 23, 2008

Um, yeah. What time?
posted by fiercecupcake at 9:54 AM on January 29, 2008

Sometime between 8:37pm and 8:41pm.
posted by bigmusic at 10:17 AM on January 29, 2008

Okay, I'm going to aim for 8:39, because I'm neurotic like that.
posted by fiercecupcake at 11:18 AM on January 29, 2008

Aw, I'm swamped with homework that I need to catch up on this weekend, so have fun without me, folks!
posted by lychee at 6:51 PM on February 1, 2008

posted by Pants! at 7:38 PM on February 2, 2008

I'm sorry for missing this one, something came up and I couldn't get out of it.
posted by bigmusic at 8:57 PM on February 2, 2008

Dude, next time you can't meet up for the meetup you started, try to post a little earlier :[

likesuchasand, collocation, and I all went together from Austin and no one else showed up.
posted by fiercecupcake at 9:02 PM on February 2, 2008

I am so, so sorry. I really thought I was going to be there tonight. My sincerest regrets.
posted by bigmusic at 9:28 PM on February 2, 2008

posted by spiderwire at 12:55 AM on February 3, 2008

Guys it had a Galaga cocktail cabinet! Okay and a Ms. Pacman one, but really Galaga is superior.

It was my first time in San Marcos proper.

Kinda lame for the non-shows but yeah.

I'm game for the next Austin meet-up.
