Cincinnati meetup? February 2, 2008 2:15 PM   Subscribe

Cincinnati meetup?

It is all about the food. And the drinks. And the sarcasm.

We are MeFi Cincinnati... and we need to meet!

I know there has to be at least...4 or 5 of you out there, right?

Anyone up for a meetup night in Feb?

Oh man, would that you asked this in early 2007 rather than early 2008. As it is, I hope you get some folks to show up.

Which might happen later this year, am not just bing a jerk.

I am jealous that you get Skyline & goetta at your meetups...
posted by Argyle at 9:23 PM on February 2, 2008

Skyline and LaRosa's. Damn, I miss that.

Do you have a date in mind? I might be able to drive up from Louisville.

I could be convinced

How does either February 28th (Thursday) or the 29th (Friday) sound?

Any suggestions for the locale? I can throw out a handful:

Guru India (Northern, KY in Crescent Springs off of the Buttermilk Pike exit on 75 -- Indian/Pakistani, This is a new place opened by Ambar India's owners over in Clifton. REALLY great Indian food w/o the crowd. For now.)

Dewey's Pizza (3 locations -- Awesome Pizza)

Shanghai Mama's (Downtown -- Chinese that is the best I have had)

Chez Nora's (Covington -- Varied menu)

Nicholson's (Downtown -- Scottish pub, rad berrs and authentic food)

Slims (Northside -- gour-comfort food at it's finest. Great atmosphere)

Cock & Bull Pub (Covington -- The best Wings around, Great selection of beer)

I am looking forward to this!

opps! I left out:

Universal Grille (Downtown -- Great grille fare - Plus the only place I have found that serves 'Chicken and Waffles' since I left California!)

I'm good for either day, any place so I'll let the others decide.

i'm in columbus, but might be convinced
posted by lohmannn at 8:08 AM on February 4, 2008

OK, to expand the potential headcount...and for those of you would are willing to be convinced (begged even)! to make the journey:

How about going with Friday Feb 29th?

It will be a rad way to celebrate Leap Year!

Now ... to pick the place. Any thoughts on the suggestions folks?

Additionally - We are near Turfway Park, a thoroughbred racetrack ... we could do dinner, catch a few races (I have connections!) and then head to a local pub. For you out of towners, I can provide a list of local hotels w/good rates.


Alert any MeFites you can think of in Louisville, Lexington, Columbus and of course, Cincinnati! Bring along spouses, friends... Lets have a blast!

PS- Is anyone out there good at Photo Journaling? We need a Photo Master for the meetup!
posted by caveat empress at 9:17 AM on February 4, 2008

I'll come and bring a camera - not sure I'm worthy of the "Photo Master" (Mistress?) designation, though. And while I like all of your suggestions, I'd also add The Oriental Wok. They are really nice folks and would spoil us rotten.

Bet on me to Show in the/with a fifth.
posted by hal9k at 3:40 PM on February 4, 2008

Caveat empress, should we firm up the 29th as the date and pick a venue so we can get this in the upcoming meetups list on the front page of MeTa? You're in charge here!

Tizzie (I mean Photo Mistress!) I had just added it!

Yeah! We can start congregating at the bar from 5:30 on!

Ah ha! Perfect timing before the best week in Cincinnati history (Opening Day Monday, MusicNOW Festival Wednesday-Saturday), the following week. I'll be there!

Banannafish -- you are SO right. We, at MetaFilter, wanted to get the Cincinnati party started! It IS going to be a great week and change in our area! See you there!

What a swell party it was! When's the next one?!?!

Part 1 was fun; looks like part 2 was also. Good photos, tizzie.

Lets do the Prima Vista next time!
posted by caveat empress at 7:30 AM on March 3, 2008

Or we could do Ludlow Bromley Yacht Club as soon as they open - that is some good, cheap fun!
posted by tizzie at 9:20 AM on March 3, 2008

looks like fun, shame I couldn't make it.
