MeFi Atlanta Newbies Unite! May 21, 2009 6:41 PM   Subscribe

Any Atlanta MeFi's Meetup newbies interested in an Atlanta Pre-10th meetup?

So, after reading this thread, I think it might be fun for Atlanta MeFi newbies to meet up pre 10th. Non-newbies are welcome of course, too... I was thinking something in the Dunwoody or Decatur area for the meetup... any ideas, thoughts, condemnations, or words of caution?

Not sure if I qualify as a newbie, but sometime in June might work. Decatur's good, but I defer to northsiders on places to go in Dunwoody (other than Eclipse di Luna).

Seeing as how I will be missing the Mefi 10th meetup since I'll be out of town, I would love to go to a pre-meetup.

As a newbie, I think it's a swell idea. I'm pretty sure I'd think it a good idea regardless of my MeFi rank.

Ok, so Pointystick - June is good for you ... I'm thinking either Friday the 5th, or Saturday the 20th...

I'm a fan of Eclipse, but depending on how large we get, we might not be so welcome there - 5 or 10 of us, sure .. any more, maybe not. I'm open to other ideas too, although Eclipse does have some mighty good sangria.

Once we decide on a date, i'll post it to the real calendar, and we can see what response we get...

I'm down for whatever - we can probably go up to about 10 if we call ahead to Eclipse perimeter. However, they don't open until 5 on weekends, which might be problematic for people with richer social lives than mine.

Ok, so, let's do June 5, at Eclipse di Luna Perimeter - I'll be there at 5:30 to get us a table, we'll set the official start to 6:00 PM ... going until ... whenever. Leave a note here if you're going to be there - if we go past 10 people, we'll have to change venue.

I'll be in the area so I'm going to show up.

I have an Important to Be Seen At Work Function that afternoon, but am pretty sure I can make it there by 6. Thanks for throwing this together!

Excellent, I'll be there!

OK, crew - that was awesome fun. Always fun to meet new MeFites, even if we are all "annoying internet people". frwagon, thanks for organizing and for the hospitality. See y'all in Decatur at the 10th!
