The Sun Is Here Seattle, Let's Have A Meetup! March 17, 2008 3:25 PM   Subscribe

Time for another Seattle Meet-Up?

I just answered an askmefi from someone who appears to live on the same block as me, so I figured we look into putting together another meetup. I know y2karl, dw, slarty bartfest and corpse in the library all seem like cool cats I'd like to share a beverage with, and probably others too.

So what say you? Should we find some excuse to go outside these slowly brightening days? (Or atleast find a place with nice windows and a patio, and a good selection of tasty beverages?)

I was thinking the weekend of the 29th possibly?

I know of a few watering holes to go to, but I would love to hear other folks suggestions.

I've never been able to make a meet-up but would love to . . . just can't on the weekend of the 19th. Doh!

Hey, dates are free form. Pitch in when works.
posted by mrzarquon at 4:50 PM on March 17, 2008

I'm fairly open ended, all things considered. I haven't been to a meetup in years- last/only one I went to was back when Jessamyn still lived in Seattle! :o
posted by hincandenza at 5:02 PM on March 17, 2008

An excellent idea! April's busy for me this year, with assorted houseguests and a birthday party -- but there's a good chance I'd be able to sneak away for a beer (or coffee, or ice water, or Eggs Benedict, or whatever).

April 6, 19, and 20th don't work for me. The rest should be fine.
posted by The corpse in the library at 5:05 PM on March 17, 2008

Oh hells yes! I am down.*

*offer subject to availability. The 29th looks good for me.

Now someone suggest to me a good place for drinking of beer. I have been in a bit of a rut lately. Last night after band practice we literally sat for an hour trying to come up with a place to go that we weren't totally bored with. In the end, we went to *ack* Dad Watson's.

The Pacific Inn is nice. Any night but Saturday, we would own the place. But please, get me drunk somewhere new. Makes getting home so much more of an adventure.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 5:31 PM on March 17, 2008

Um, there's the possibility that I'll be in town on the 28th for a UW iSchool information session. If a meetup happened that day, I would haul ass to make it.

Having said that, I don't know if I will actually be in town. So yeah. Plan what thou wilt.
posted by fuzzbean at 5:32 PM on March 17, 2008

For locations, we could look at taking over the Stumbling Monk, its only got a few tables, but they are chill. They do however, only serve Beer.

I realize it is a haul, but I haven't been to the 9lb hammer in ages. I am also a fan of Twilight Exit, but I have never had to park near it (I guess you could park in the safeway near it now). I've been off my game, my most recent night out has been in Bellevue.

Should we post an askmefi about dive bars in seattle? now that they have closed the bus stop and the crocodile...

I have just about every weekend and almost every weeknight free from now until June.
posted by mrzarquon at 5:46 PM on March 17, 2008

There has been talk of Mike's Chili Parlor in one of y2karl's earlier posts. I have never been, but there's a certain beauty in meeting up at the subject of a MeFi post.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 6:14 PM on March 17, 2008

I'd love to be there, though the weekend of the 29-30 won't work for me. If that's what's best for others, though, I'll just look forward to the next one, and wish everyone a great time.
posted by Kat Allison at 6:21 PM on March 17, 2008

Oh yeah, how about Smith on Capitol Hill? Owned by the Linda's people, great food (though limited vegetarian options), big long tables perfect for meet ups.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 6:21 PM on March 17, 2008

Smith is pretty great, I had poutine there last night (which is something you should really plan on sharing with people i discovered). They also have scotch eggs.
posted by mrzarquon at 7:23 PM on March 17, 2008

Poutine AND scotch eggs?! Hells yes.
posted by librarina at 7:59 PM on March 17, 2008

Hey fuzzbean, shoot me a MeFail if you'd like some graduates' perspectives on the iSchool. I've got friends, co-workers, and spouses that attended, are attending, or are teaching at the iSchool and, being a librarian, I have a deep-seated need to connect people with information.

I'd like to make the meetup, but schedules are complicated.
posted by stet at 8:01 PM on March 17, 2008

stet does not have multiple spouses in varying stages of completion of the program. He has one spouse (me) who is finished, and several friends in varying stages of completion.

And he's a wimp about scheduling. But I think the scotch eggs might convince him.
posted by librarina at 8:06 PM on March 17, 2008

Oh yeah, when I was there, there was a strong undercurrent of poutine at the iSchool. iPoutine they called it.
posted by stet at 8:06 PM on March 17, 2008

I had the poutine at Smith. It's not bad, but the Canadians I was with turned their nose up at it because it had sawmill gravy.

What is the deal with this town and sawmill gravy? I had a chicken fried steak at the Blue Onion Bistro that was covered in the stuff. It's CREAM GRAVY ON CFS, fools.

Oh, the matter at hand. The 29th is OK, mostly. I have M's tickets for 4/11 and 4/27. Actually, April is pretty free for me.

Schultzy's is good, though I'm not sure about space (I've only sat in the front). Big Time is pretty noisy. Honestly, I have a car and I don't drink much, so I'm pretty free to roam.

As for the iSchool, I've been there, got turned down for a job there, but honestly, the School of Public Health is far more awesome than the iSchool. Except for their website. The idiot that designed Public Health's website shouldn't be allowed near the web.
posted by dw at 8:24 PM on March 17, 2008

dw- as an aside, i've seen sawmill gravy and white gravy as interchangable names for the same thing (milk based gravy). Poutine is usually served with a beef broth gravy. But really, seattlite's like their sausage gravy or breakfast gravy.

Wait, are we talking April 29th or March 29th? I think i confused myself.
posted by mrzarquon at 8:28 PM on March 17, 2008

p.p.s. I think we can plan for multiple meetups this spring/summer, as we have already listed atleast two other places I want to check out, and I need more excuses to get off the hill. And I really want to get to Mike's Chili sometime.
posted by mrzarquon at 8:31 PM on March 17, 2008

There has been talk of Mike's Chili Parlor in one of y2karl's earlier posts. I have never been, but there's a certain beauty in meeting up at the subject of a MeFi post.

I've been here since 1987, and have yet to go to Mike's. I'm now told it has really good chili, so I'd like to check it out. One vote for Mike's.
posted by Tube at 9:10 PM on March 17, 2008

Schultzy's has recently (?) acquired the next-door space, and I cannot remember what it used to be. (Not the Korean, formerly European Bakery, place; rather, the place immediately adjacent to Schultzy's.) Anyway, it's twice as big now. And still has good beer.

And wtf, white gravy on poutine? It's supposed to be brown, isn't it? I like the (pretentious? but delicious) poutine at Steelhead Diner at the market, which has brown gravy with bits of chicken in it, and Beecher's cheese curds.
posted by librarina at 10:11 PM on March 17, 2008

I've never been to a meetup, and I'd sure like to. Conveniently enough, I don't have to work from the 24th to the 6th, so 29th would be awesome.

Any good places in Ballard/Wallingford/Fremont? I used to live in lower Queen Anne, but I didn't get out of the neighborhood much. I always meant to get up that way and never did.

I was talking March 29.
posted by dw at 12:29 AM on March 18, 2008

The Sunset Bowl closes for forever on April 19. I think that we need to get one more bowling meet up in there before then. This would be the meet up.
posted by y2karl at 5:36 AM on March 18, 2008

Yes, y2karl, as usual has it. Sunset then Mike's is my nomination.

I too assumed March 29, but a non-Saturday night might be a little easier, (and Sunset's gonna be packed). How do people feel about Sunday the 30th, or earlier on the 29th?
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 8:10 AM on March 18, 2008

I just checked--Sunday is league night and there are no lanes available then.
posted by y2karl at 8:32 AM on March 18, 2008

That is, there are no lanes availabe from 5:30 PM until 9:00 PM on Sunday--which is also true for Monday through Thursday. I would suggest that Saturday the 29th is the ideal date for a Sunset meetup.
posted by y2karl at 8:35 AM on March 18, 2008

I'll definitely try and make it, most evenings are free. Since Sunset is closing and Mike's is nearby that's a good selection, but I simply must insist on a future Seattle meet-up at Shultzy's. That is a GREAT place to meet, excellent beer selction and great sausages.
posted by vito90 at 9:13 AM on March 18, 2008

ok. I was hoping everyone was thinking March 29th for this meetup. I got confused because people were mentioning april dates by name.

I am all for Sunset then Mike's Chili. Maybe we get a lane or two in the afternoon and folks can trickle in, and then we head over to Mike's for a chili dinner?

And on the agenda for future meetups: Schultzy's and Smith (and probably more beers).
posted by mrzarquon at 9:24 AM on March 18, 2008

All right, let's throw this up on the big board, mrzarquon wanna do the honors?
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 9:37 AM on March 18, 2008

Cool! I sometimes have last-minute work thrown my way, but I'll do my best to come.
posted by The corpse in the library at 10:29 AM on March 18, 2008

29th, huh? I'll see if I can tweak my trip to make it. Cool!

Official place / date / time post:

Location: Meeting at the Sunset Bowl (google map) then going to Mike's Chili Parlour (google map) for beers and eats. Sunset bowl also serves food.

Date: March 29th, 2008

Time: TBD? But I would think around 3pm for bowling, with getting to dinner around 5-6. Unless there is other ideas for the time.
posted by mrzarquon at 3:16 PM on March 18, 2008

I feel a little sheepish for asking, but does Mike's do vegetarian?
posted by adiabat at 5:26 PM on March 18, 2008

When in doubt, BYOV
posted by y2karl at 6:55 PM on March 18, 2008

Sunset Bowl also serves food.

A vegetarian might have better luck at the Sunset. Also, they have a lounge with karaoke. Where, I understand, one Jessamyn tore it up at a meeting long ago.
posted by y2karl at 7:00 PM on March 18, 2008

Should one of us call Sunset and see if we can get lanes for that time? Only time I've been there was for sunday morning bowling, so I don't know if it fills up in the afternoon, etc.

Also, we can fall back to the sunset for karaoke also, as Mike's actually closes at 8pm on saturdays.
posted by mrzarquon at 7:20 PM on March 18, 2008

Baring scimitar assault from boiled tooth merchant, I will be there, huddled in the corner with fellow vegetarians with a stock of kale and a shoehorn as our only defense.

Please, let me know how I might assist.
posted by agent seamalt jones at 8:30 PM on March 18, 2008

Yay, a meetup in Seattle! I've never been to Sunset or Mike's, can't bowl to save a cow's life, but love it anyway. I'll be there.
posted by owhydididoit at 10:08 AM on March 19, 2008

Oh, nevermind about reservations for lanes by the hour, they don't take them on the weekends it appears from the website.

I think the safe bet would be planning to meet in the lounge, and folks can hang out and group together to then go and grab a lane or two for those inclined to bowl, and those who don't can hang back and check out Karaoke.

Also, as a bonus incentive for the Veggies braving to join us at Mike's, I am going to see if I can get some vegan truffles (for everyone) through my connections at Cafe Flora.
posted by mrzarquon at 11:29 AM on March 19, 2008

damn, well scratch the truffle idea. But I will think of something.
posted by mrzarquon at 11:30 AM on March 19, 2008

It should be noted that Sunset sells beers in bowling pin shaped bottles. Cheap, piss-tasting beer.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 1:36 PM on March 19, 2008

Cheap, piss-tasting beer.

The term is Budweiser, and the bowling pin shape makes it taste delicious.

Or atleast thats what I thought after I discovered them 5 drinks into my last night of bowling.
posted by mrzarquon at 2:57 PM on March 19, 2008

I'm into it. I'll cross-post on Metachat to make sure the folks over there see it.
posted by matildaben at 3:05 PM on March 19, 2008

I am excited about bowling pin shaped beer vessels.
posted by agent seamalt jones at 5:30 PM on March 19, 2008

Georgetown has become my hood as of late. In addition to the illustrious 9lb, the is also Jules Maes, Smarty Pants (with patio) and some odd lounge scenario round back where the project films onto the facade of the opposing building. These establishments CAN and WILL serve you piss tasting beer upon bowling pin steins .
posted by agent seamalt jones at 5:35 PM on March 19, 2008

they project films actually, I don't know really what THE project does.
posted by agent seamalt jones at 5:39 PM on March 19, 2008

I'm not sure I want to go to a Meetup with people who know what piss tastes like.
posted by The corpse in the library at 5:41 PM on March 19, 2008

Crimony, I nearly forgot. Smarty Pants has Frito Pie!
posted by agent seamalt jones at 5:55 PM on March 19, 2008

agent- indeed, i whole heartedly endorse Smarty Pants for the next meetup. Their biscuits and gravy are top notch also.

corpse- I think it would add a certain character to the meetup. Besides, now you know who to ask if you want to know if something, authoritatively, tastes like piss. That I think is worth the awkward silence.

(bring breath mints)
posted by mrzarquon at 6:17 PM on March 19, 2008

Slarty Bartfast is that authority...
posted by agent seamalt jones at 6:33 PM on March 19, 2008

I'm more likely to go to Georgetown, since I live in the Rainier Valley. Jules Maes has some veggie dishes, tasty beer and enough room for everyone, I think.

Issit a do?
posted by black8 at 7:32 PM on March 19, 2008

So um. I feel kind of awkward asking this. Would anyone consider offering me crash space for a couple of nights? I can produce at least a couple of Mefites who will attest to my (relative) sanity and the unlikeliness of me engaging in nefarious activity, and I'll buy your drinks at the meetup and/or dinner.
posted by fuzzbean at 8:13 PM on March 19, 2008

black8, I think Sunset is probably a done deal, I'd love to buy you a bowling pin beer if you'd make the trek. Be nice to see you again.

In fo' sure on the 29th.

Also, I'd be down to check out this Smarty Pants place on another date since so many people are keen on going. Never have too much good conversation.

fuzzbean- congrats! but boo, you wont be here for the festivities. I will take photos.

Try to get up here in August if you can swing it, so you can get a place and explore seattle before getting thrown into the rigors that is grad school. Also, I will buy you a scotch egg at said meetup.

(Can I just say how snorfly this thread is making me? I feel like wherever I go there will be Mefites, one big crotchety snarky terribly silly family. I wuv you.)

Seattleites are much more cuddly than Los Angelinos due to our long cold, wet winters. Now that the sun's out we're getting downright frisky. Wuv acknowledged and accepted.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 4:36 PM on March 21, 2008

Future Meetup Update- I just checked with the folks at Smarty Pants (via a covert operation called 'breakfast'), and they are down with us showing up as a big group pretty much any night except wednesday, which is Bike Night. We can give a call before we head down for them to make sure they have tables for us, but it shouldn't be a problem. If we go down when the weather is warmer, we can probably invade their entire patio area and watch the planes land at boeing field.

Saturday Meetup Update- I should my have officially certified, MeFi shirt by then, so I'll be in the lounge at sunset bowl start at 3pm next saturday, the 29th, with tasty vegan snacks for any veggie who decides to brave the adventure to Mike's Chili with us.

Thanks, Stacey. No Hattie's for us; the best I could argue for was Gordito's. I'd probably get into trouble by naming the wedding venue here for any MeFis that might want to smooth-talk their way in after dinner for a glass of wine and dancing, but I can't see any problem with suggesting that it might possibly rhyme with Killshole Day Leach Rub. You know, next to Bay's Roathouse near Molden Mardens.

I don't think the karaoke starts until later in the evening (9 p.m. or so), but I'll see if I can come by for some bowling.
posted by matildaben at 11:14 AM on March 28, 2008

Mike's closes up shop early on saturdays, so I believe the plan is to get drinks and do some bowling, then go to mikes and get chili, and maybe then karaoke for the stragglers.

I am sad that stet and I had to leave so early, but we did make our 6:20 ferry and the chickens and ducks and dogs were happy to see us. Are y'all still at it? If not, why haven't you posted pictures yet?

I feel SUPER LAME about not having charged the battery on my little XO. I will keep it plugged in between now and the next meetup, so we can play with it, and maybe blasdelf will bring his next time too, and I can see what the mesh network thingy looks like with someone else on it.

posted by librarina at 9:56 PM on March 29, 2008

The chili was excellent, as advertised. Would eat again.

I met a number of very smart, literate, and eclectic individuals.

For a time, I was seated next to Agent Seamalt Jones, and so was able to exchange meaningful anecdotes about "slugs", the legality of feeding parking meters, lockpicks, digital audio, conductivity of copper vs. the conductivity of verdigris, and the alarming rise in copper theft. He seemed mildly melancholy about the mobility and reach of his thumbs.

Karl brought a book on Seattle history that I also owned, thus giving me an impromptu prop to illustrate an anecdote about big boulders in my yard.

When we left Mike's Chili, we walked around the corner to see the house in this post.

I suspect that when all the construction is finished this woman's little house is going to become something of a Seattle landmark and photo opportunity.
posted by Tube at 10:34 PM on March 29, 2008

I am sorry that I had to call it an evening so early but it was nice to see so many people. I should have guessed that getting a lane these days would be hopeless but, on the other hand, it was nice to see an article suggesting the Sunset's demise is not yet carved in stone.

And Ballard, Jesus Christ, I had not been up on Market in months--that is development Denver style, housing bubble on meth and steroids. You could see, in any given 180° turn, close to a thousand units of new never lived in apartments loom close and far, block after block in six story canyons. It is unbelievable how fast old Ballard has gone. . It's like a mini-version of the polar ice melt--it's all happening so much faster and so much farther that one would have ever thought on their gloomiest days. That neighborhood has gone Art Bell woo woo greatest storm fast It' s so scary. And how are they going to fill them ? And if they do, good bye old Ballard. It just looks like some science fiction novel cover out there now--all they need now is one of those Geisha blimps from Bladerunner.

And new life awaits you in the Outer Colonies....

So I have returned and got the Flickr photos uploaded. It was a great time, going from sunset bowl to mike's chili (where I got to order a stewart special grilled cheese) to Slarty's place with blasdelf and Agent Seamalt Jones. It was quite a time.

I am glad folks could make it, sorry I was down at the end of the tables with Lattiboy folks, next time I will have to circulate more. I kept wanting to talk to y2karl about how he crafts his posts so well.

Post Party shoutouts to: Lipstick Thespian, Fuzz Bean (Congrats again) and wedding wishs to Fatllama.

Tomorrow I will go through and tag the photos, and if folks want to identify themselves in the pics, because I've forgotten most everyones usernames.

Now I must go to sleep.

Slarty- What we really all want to know is: were you forced to sleep on the couch? How are you feeling T+ 20 hours since your feat of gastro-intestinal fortitude.

I think we might need to do a tour of georgetown. Georgetown Brewery (fine makers of Manny's Pale Ale) offer tours the last monday evening of every month. Also, Georgetown Liquor Company serves fine tasty vegan and veggie treats, and Smarty Pants has some of the best high caloric foodstuffs in town. (speaking of which, I need to get to the gym tonight).

Fuzzbean- We will definitely have to plan a welcome to seattle party for august, Now with 100% more Fuzzbean™, and 203% more SCOTCH EGGS!™

Please, don't distract me. Digesting this food brick takes concentration. Inhale...exhale...

I'm actually kind of sinister looking, and have laser vision. Kneel before zod!

Wish I could have mingled more, but stet and librarina were more than willing to hear my BS about life at UDub. y2karl did lean over to me to utter some choice words about the state of Ballard, but that's what they're programming all the replicants to say nowadays, isn't it?

I was actually happy to duck out -- wife had stomach flu and I don't think chili breath would have helped that.

And God, I need to lose weight. Gaaah.

Yeah, me too. It's cause Slarty used his special Woodland Critter Christmas camera.

Artw, I had no idea you were Seattle-based. Sorry to miss this one, folks, maybe next time!

Well, I'll try! (this one being practically on my doorsetp was a big factor in being able to turn up)
