Let's grab a pint (or two) in Charm City... September 19, 2008 5:21 PM   Subscribe

Bal'more meetup, hon?

I've just moved out from Southern California, so I've absolutely no idea where to suggest, but I think its been a few months since a Baltimore meet-up. Any suggestions from the locals regarding past meet-up spots that were local favorites or new adventures anyone would be dying to try? I've only been out to explore a few places for drinks/dining (e.g. The Brewer's Art, Joe Squared). Dates are absolutely open, so would something in the next week or two work for anyone/everyone willing?

I'm coming up for Nightwish at Rams Head next Friday. I'd probably stick around for a Saturday meetup if Saturday meets anybody's whatever for thingy.

I'm down for a Saturday, Sunday or Monday night.
If you haven't been, the Windup Space, in my experience, it's a good place to get a drink and talk. (Only been there once, though.) It's on the other side of North Avenue from Joe Squared and between Charles and St. Paul.

I meant the Windup Space, in my experience IS a good place...

Aw, I miss Bawlmer.

Have fun guys.

Heh. I remember reading about the Baltimore ",hon" thing in one of John Water's books, Shock Value, yeah that's it. Wish I could be there, I live in your true "sister city" Oakland. Have fun.

If Omar can't make it, neither can I :-(

If it's next weekend, I think I can swing it.

So the general consensus would be that Saturday (27th) at The Windup Space would work for everyone? 8p?

I'd like to go to a meetup, but I can't make next weekend...next time perhaps.

Saturdays are generally bad for me (Saturday's a rugby day). Sunday, Monday or Friday evenings are better.

The cheese stands alone.

So since electroboy has to roll around in the dirt with other men on Saturday and most of the rest can do Sunday, shall we?
posted by Asherah at 9:24 PM on September 21, 2008

Sure, works for me.
posted by youcancallmeal at 9:07 AM on September 22, 2008

I'll do my best. I'll be over on the eastern shore for part of the afternoon, but I can probably make it back by 8. If I can't make it, take lots of pictures so I can either:

1. See how lame it was and be glad I didn't go.
2. See how awesome it was and resent you jerks for not including me.
posted by electroboy at 10:26 AM on September 22, 2008

So electroboy, perhaps you can give us a detailed schedule and we can go from there? I kid, I kid. Even if I'm the only one who shows up, I'll have a passerby take a photo of me pouting. Then I'll start whistling for Omar.
posted by Asherah at 12:37 PM on September 22, 2008

I'm around most days, except when I'm not, which is often.
posted by electroboy at 12:39 PM on September 22, 2008

I've lost track of who can do when, but this particular Sunday I can't make it, unless you want me to not see my mother for her birthday. Why do you hate my mother? I mean, have fun!
posted by Airhen at 7:29 PM on September 22, 2008

So, now we have to choose between electroboy and Airhen? I might cry.
posted by youcancallmeal at 10:12 PM on September 22, 2008

Well, we could say fuck it...or push it back to the weekend after next? I think I might head up there regardless and see if anyone appears. If not, I'll drown my sorrows in a pint and some free wifi.
posted by Asherah at 3:12 AM on September 23, 2008

I'm confused! I'm waiting for everyone else to decide to see if I can make it.
posted by KAS at 6:38 AM on September 23, 2008

It looks like Saturday works for most people. Why don't we do Saturday and I'll try to make the tail end.
posted by electroboy at 6:44 AM on September 23, 2008

Maybe electroboy and I are the same person. I've never seen us at a meetup together, have you?
posted by Airhen at 7:38 AM on September 23, 2008

Now that you mention it, that is suspicious.
posted by electroboy at 10:31 AM on September 23, 2008

I'm in for Saturday.
posted by Asherah at 11:14 AM on September 23, 2008

Windup is great, I will be there Saturday in any case for the jazz. But thinking it may be a bit loud that night? Also, Windup is not open Sundays at this point. Also, (full disclosure) the owner there is a close friend. So...?
Oh and on re-preview, it's actually between Charles and Maryland (west of Charles, not east toward St. Paul.)
posted by zoinks at 12:35 PM on September 23, 2008

Pfft. Jazz. They just make it up as they go along.
posted by electroboy at 1:09 PM on September 23, 2008

Yeah, that's what I like about it!

( . { )

(Okay that is a pretty lame attempt at a Mr. Boh.)
posted by zoinks at 5:12 PM on September 23, 2008

Oh, shoot, isn't everyone going to Sam Zell's party on the 27th? If not, is 8pm the time?
posted by Airhen at 8:39 PM on September 23, 2008

I think we were still shooting for 8p...I'll be there then.
posted by Asherah at 5:39 PM on September 25, 2008

Nightwish cancelled for tonight (that's the second time that's happened to me) so with all respect I think I'll be skipping the drive up.
posted by Wolfdog at 10:27 AM on September 26, 2008

I might be a little late, but I should be there.
posted by youcancallmeal at 12:03 PM on September 26, 2008

Argh. I just got home. Trying to rally for a second wind, but it's not looking good.
posted by youcancallmeal at 5:07 PM on September 27, 2008

I tried to make it, really I did. I showered and shaved after the game, then fell asleep on the couch.
posted by electroboy at 12:24 PM on September 29, 2008

It was just me and Asherah. We just sat there and talked about you all. Also, we nominated electroboy to call the next meetup.
posted by Airhen at 7:41 PM on September 29, 2008

Thus there were no photographs, but I can try my best attempt at a drawing of the setting if anyone would like.
posted by Asherah at 5:27 PM on September 30, 2008

Yet another instance of me and Airhen not appearing together. Suspicious.
