iPoutine and iTakeout April 14, 2008 10:24 AM   Subscribe

Seattle Meetup! May 10 or 11! I am coming to your fair city for to find me an apartment. There should be beer. And poutine.

I'll be staying in the U-District, carless and not terribly familiar with your fine system of public transportation (a deficiency soon to be remedied). But I'm sure I can find my way around. I know virtually nothing about Seattle, so y'all more seasoned homies should figure out the wheres and the whenses. I cede to your superior wisdom and experience.

Pho is an acceptable substitute for poutine. Beer is not optional.

We just had one!

(but yes, I would try and make it)

Doing something down south has been mentioned, but that area is pretty wretcehd from a public transportation point of view.

Poutine means Smith. And I think there's a direct bus route from the District to the 15th Ave part of Capitol Hill.

Otherwise, if you want to stay in the District... not a lot of options, are there? But then, didn't we just do that big U District food AskMe last week?

We could do it downtown. That's stupid easy on the bus from the U District.

We could do Ballard again, theres the 44...

In which case poutine means The Steelhead Diner, though none of the poutine I've found in Seattle has really been awesome.
posted by j.edwards at 11:22 AM on April 14, 2008

The poutine is not really a necessity. Someplace cool. And...Seattle-esque.

I'm quite happy to travel for this as long as it's bussable there and back.

Smith's other offerings are pretty good.

Seattle-esque... which sort of Seattle you looking for? The new, shiny Seattle that we sell the yuppies? Or the old, grimy Seattle of dives and the working class?

Now that the Sunset Bowl is gone (RIP), Ballard's really not a good choice for old and grimy, except Hattie's Hat, which is starting to see its clientèle skew with the new condo-fied Ballard.

One of us was pretty adamant about Shultzy's during the last meetup thread. I love Smith, and the Steelhead Diner for that matter, but I am intrigued by the talk of Smarty Pants in Georgetown. I kind of picked Mike's Chili Parlor though so I should keep my big mouth shut this time.

In summary, I will be mostly done digesting my chili fries by May 10 so anywhere is fine.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 2:10 PM on April 14, 2008

Oh yeah, Shultzy's is right there in the U district if that information is helpful.

Got to be Shultzy's, no? It's right where the poster is staying and got a promise of love from us last time. Plus a guy I know works there, and surely he'll pick up the tab for the entire group.

Hey, fuzzbean, I owe you a scotch egg at Smith! And beer!

It's a good place, and they have poutine.
posted by mrzarquon at 3:50 PM on April 14, 2008

Smarty Pants does not have poutine, but is also delicious. I can shuttle some folks down there, as I live next to the 49 on capitol hill, which runs straight in the U, along with the 43. Those are two of the busses I take to work, and they both run all over the U.

Depending on what you want to do, you can also pickup an all day visitor bus pass, otherwise the buses are $1.50 a pop, with 3 hour tranfers i believe (work gives me an unlimited bus pass, so i don't keep track).
posted by mrzarquon at 3:55 PM on April 14, 2008

also, I have no problem playing tour guide, as I've done so for quite a few folks visiting the city in the past (and it gives me an excuse to go outside), and I don't think there is anything stopping a contingent of us from doing a few rounds of places throughout seattle, i mean, we do have to show fuzzbean more than just ONE bar while she is here.

We used to do meetups at the Big Time, which is also in the U District. They have beer (they brew their own), sandwiches, chili, and baked potatoes, but no poutine.

I think first we might want to decide on a part of seattle, so i've grouped some places together that people have mentioned that are all somewhat in the same vicinity of each other:

Smith on capitol hill: Scotch egg, poutain, big tables, beer, easy to get to by bus for northerners

Quin's on Capitol Hill, not exactly cheap or vegan/veggie friendly, but great food if you don't mind feeling like Slarty for a few days, post chili fries.

Smarty Pants: pretty awesome, in georgetown, no poutain, plenty of veg/vegan options, hard to get to by bus, but plenty of parking across the way and patio for outdoor hanging about.

Georgetown Liquor Company has awesome veggie stuff, not to mention old school atari's and NES/SNES consoles setup, and they are new and still need the business.

Shultzy's: in U District, sausages, spoken of with much praise, outdoor dining (never been)

Big Time Brewery and Ale House In udistrict, can get pretty packed on the weekend nights, but beer is good, and standard pub grub.

Steelhead Diner: spoken of with much praise, in downtown/belltown (never been)

Mama's (I think, mexican?) in belltown.

Steelhead is a bit pricey for meetup purposes.

I'm torn, do we only get tkchrist if we go to Mama's?

I'll almost definitely be up for the occasion!
posted by blasdelf at 9:57 PM on April 14, 2008

If it were up to me, I'd choose Shultzy's or Smith.

Shultzy's is in the U District and pretty cheap -- I think their most expensive item is $10.

The one advantage for Smith is they have a HUGE table that seats 20 or so right down the middle. Also, they're more vegan/veggie friendly than Shultzy's (though as an omnivore I never really look at the menu for vegan options.)

As for everywhere else, I have a car so it's no worries. Just worry about getting fuzzbean to/from Georgetown. Maybe I just grab her when I'm coming south.
posted by dw at 11:01 PM on April 14, 2008

Oh, and I think Big Time is going to get loud in a hurry on the weekends. It's hard to have a conversation in there when it's empty.

Mama's I've never been to, wouldn't mind trying, but GAWD ALMIGHTY parking is a bitch in Belltown nowadays.
posted by dw at 11:04 PM on April 14, 2008

So now I've got offerings of kidnappings and tour guides. WIN.

Schlutzy's and Smith both sound pretty good to me, as do the two places in Georgetown (difficulties with transportation aside). Although really I'm good with anything.

Yes, but poutine is from Quebec, which is nowhere near Seattle! I'm shocked and appalled that they have stolen this from Quebec. However, were I in Seattle, I would be shocked and pleased that they stole poutine from Quebec. Mmmmm....poutine.

According to what I can dig up, 11am to midnight everday.

So the question is, do we want to do a lunch or a dinner thing? or something in between?

3pm kinda worked last night, enough for folks to hang out and shoot the shit who didn't want to stick around for a meal, and plenty of time for folks who wanted to grab dinner to work up an appetite.

Gah! I should have realised earlier - theres a comics convention the same day! I'll have to see if i can come up with some kind of crazy scheme to try and do both and not make Heather feel like I'm dumping the kid on here for the whole day.

Also, I believe the 10th or the 11th is still on the table (saturday or sunday).
posted by mrzarquon at 9:56 AM on April 16, 2008

My plane lands at 11a on Saturday. I'm guessing I'm going to be scouting apartments that day until 4ish? So I probably won't show up until after that, although to be quite honest I really don't know what my schedule is going to look like for the weekend. It will depend on the whims of property managers, but I assume most of the business will be done by 4 or 5.

Emerald City Comicon

I'll be timing my visit to the con to coincide with optimal oportunities for editor stalking, hopefully getting in the meet-up as well, and managing to do it all without leaving my wife on her own with the babums long enough that she goes crazy. Fun stuff!

Sunday's still on the table as well. Just suggesting Saturday since I'm in the clear all day.

I assume most of the business will be done by 4 or 5.

So, 5:30 on Saturday? Else, 5:30 on Sunday? When you flying out?
posted by dw at 12:21 PM on April 16, 2008

5:30 Sunday would work fine too. I don't actually leave until 5p Monday (practically speaking 3p+ on Monday is spent getting to the airport). I wanted to give myself some sightseeing time to tool around the city.

Talking of which, mrzarquon, that tour guide dealio would be greatly appreciated (being as I've never actually been to Seattle before). My availability depends on property managers but I'm sure I've got time somewhere, most likely afternoons and evenings.

It's also Pentecost, too, which means everyone should speak in tongues at the meetup. Or eat tongue.

My knowledge of fiction is poor, and so was publicly excoriated for my failure to recognise the allusion to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as the source of Slarty Bartfast's moniker.

Later though, I extracted no small degree of literary revenge, as I was conversant in the works of John Rechy and Joseph Wambaugh, specifically as their books related to "park fairies".

Teh idea of a MeFi family meetup was vaguely tossed around - is that an idea that has legs? I know I'd be up for it.
posted by Artw at 9:12 AM on May 12, 2008

There was one almost full-booth of Mefites there when I showed up around 5:35. As each further tardy Mefite showed up, the Shultzy's folks adapted first with a spare chair, then an extra little table abutting the booth, and then finally when we submitted that there could be even more people eventually wanting to sit with us, they gave us a beeg table in the back. It was great for me because there was no question who was us and who was else. Last time (at the Sunset), it was rather difficult to determine who was a true stranger and who was merely a Mefite I had never met.

I ate a modest bowl of red beans and rice, and had a local porterish-brew. Then, I got a side of fries, having coveted my neighbor's. When we moved to the back I ordered a cheese steak and a white ale that Slarty Bartfast was also having (and enjoying).

All in all, I think Mefi meetups are more comfortable the second time around. :)

BTW, re: the ekimos, vitamin C and scurvey thing I halfway overheard, I assume you've heard of the Terror/Erebus exibition, which got stranded on the ice and (supposedly) got scurvey, as well as lead poisoning , and eventually starved and went canibal while the eskimo kept their distance from the strange people from far away with ice-skills made of fail.

And YES! I have the kittens you need, especially if you like mostly-black cats with folded ears and foofy tails. Two-for-one special even. And yes, I'm spaying the queen. But her babies are so beautiful, it is a very hard thing to do. Wish I lived on a farm, or at least in a big, big house.

I am so sorry I missed this. I was so tired and I just spaced it out. That Sunday I was whupped. As to why, had I made it, I could have regaled you all with talesabout the full Fellini meets Bukowski Monty of it for hours. That preceding Saturday Night was definitely a massace. And so I missed out talking to interesting nice normal abnormal people. Oh, man, wish I was there. Dang.

But I was thinking this morning that I am going to push for another multiple canoe meet up in the near future, between now and the Solstice. This is the height of baby bird season and everything is still so trancendently fresh and green. And besides the baby birds, there's the marsh wrens, red winged black bird, pie billed grebes, bald eagles, ospreys, beaver, turtles and nutria to behold. And more great blue herons than you can shake a paddle at. All this and we can stay out the latest.

The one fly in the ointment part is that, given the weather this time of year here, it could be a bit more of a flash mob event with maybe less than a week's to a day or two's notice. But, que sera--going canoeing in Portage Bay and the Arboretum is not unlike sex in that it is an activity with which one never becomes tired. Then there is the whole 520 expansion to consider. Which means that these will be sights to be lost soon forever, scenes from the Gone World.

Oh, well, sorry I missed you--it sound like you all had fun. And as for the other, formal notice to follow.

This was truly an awesome meetup, especially the gradually expanding table. And the beer. And the peeps.

Canoeing sounds totally badass, too. Count me in once I've moved up properly (think late July/early August).

Well, as the summer wears on, the algae blooms, the milfoil explodes and the oxygen gets sucked out of the water. It can get funky, stinky and skanky out there and the paddling can get labor intensive. Still, canoeing in around the Arboretum and Portage Bay is worth doing anytime one can rent a canoe but, for a fact, from now to the summer solstice is the best time of all to do so.

Yeah, it can get pretty stinky down around Portage Bay in August. Still, could be worse. And with summers in the high 70s and low 80s, it's pretty comfortable.

And fuzzbean, drop me a line when you're on campus for good and do some lunch.

Better late than never, but the poutine at SKILLET is TO DIE FOR.

Wow, this has got to be like the longest meetup thread ever, keeps popping up on my recent activity!
