And the Phoenicians did gather in an air-conditioned locale May 23, 2008 12:46 AM   Subscribe

I do believe it's time for another Phoenix meetup. Not Tucson\Flagstaff\Otherist

The weather is not likely to be as nice as our last meetup, but I believe a good time was had by many, if not most, so it seems about time to do it again.

Last time, we settled on Four Peaks in Tempe, but it would be cool to do something different, too. I'm fairly open to dates in the near future, perhaps something midweek-ish?

Man, Phoenix meetup threads are always dead. But we had about twenty people last time. I'm game for it.

I have a history of expressing interests in meetups and ending up unable to attend, and I'm mainly a lurker anyway, but let's see if I can't buck the trend!

Yeah, I was impressed with our turnout last time, and it seemed like everyone expressed interest in doing again. Maybe this will snowball a bit now that we have a few comments.

Alterscape: I had the same problem for a while, so I know what you mean. Now is a great time for trend-bucking though. (not sure why, but it is.)

If the time/place was conducive to my odd work schedule, I'd be inclined to delurk and show up.

You never have to twist my arm to get me to go to Four Peaks, meetup or not.

Well, since nobody else is expressing a strong preference, I propose a repeat of Four Peaks; either that or Casey Moore's? I haven't been down there since ASU classes ended, but I gather it's not quite so insanely crowded during the summer.

Sounds like it's four peaks then. I'll just throw out June 10th as a date.

By the way, I imagine we'll get a bit more attention once we pick something, 'cause I can put it in the sidebar.

June 10th sounds fantastic to me.

Okay, June 10th, Four Peaks in Tempe, unless someone shouts that down.

Ummmm...what time?

Oh right... does 7:00pm work for everyone?
posted by !Jim at 7:05 PM on May 27, 2008

Sure. That'd be just fine with me...

I wanna go, my first mefi meetup!

I'll be there. Thanks to !Jim (!me, thankfully) for organizing.

I've never been to a meetup. How do I find you guys?

So the meetup is definitely on, I will be there hopefully a bit before 7:00. Look for a Jack in the Box character suction cup thing.

Thanks ph00dz, notjustfoxybrown, and ihope for a small, but enjoyable meetup! It was good seeing ph00dz again, and meeting notjustfoxybrown and ihope.

Sorry all, I got called out of town last minute. See you at the next one.
