Traverse City, MI mid-august meetup July 30, 2009 4:54 PM   Subscribe

Traverse City, MI meetup: It's summer, surely there must be some people around, right?

I'm going to be back in the homeland visiting family and thought I'd see if anyone else is around. I'll be in the area from August 10th to ~the 17th and speicus will be around for part of that time. Last time I attempted this, we had a meetup of 3. Maybe this time we can break the attendance record!

You dorks! I wanted to do a Rock Band party that weekend. pout.

Michiganers look out: mandyman & speicus are AWESOME.

I'll be in the area starting tomorrow, but I'm leaving on the 7th!

I am way too far away to make it, but there needs to be some way to explain to people the awesomeness of the Traverse City area to people who are in a semi-reasonable driving radius. Go people! That quadrant of lower peninsula Michigan is my favorite place ever in the summer.

I wish I could go, I'm getting horribly nostalgic right now. Mmmcherries. Though it's probably getting a little late for them . . .

I'm always here. Pretty much.

Too bad, you'll be missing the film festival by just a few days.

that girl, the cherry crop was very late this year, so you can probably still get some. Fun fact: because of this late harvest, the Cherry Festival stock was all out-of-state cherries (FUDGIE CHERRIES OMG)

HAH! my folks live in the area now too and we'll be there from the 10-17 as well! we could do something on the 14, 15, or 16 in the evening.

I'll be Harrison the 14-16th, which puts me within a semi-reasonable range. It will also be a good excuse to leave the extended family for a bit.

Sweet! I hope there are still some tart cherries around when I get home--they don't exist in southern California.

I loved Traverse City when I was there. It's like Tuscany, except not, and with lots of snow.

I guess I'll suggest a date: what about the 15th sometime in the early evening?
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 10:33 PM on August 2, 2009

Works for me. Any preferences for a location?

Crap, I am still here. Just traveling all over southern Michigan and going to assorted family crap. I suggest we go to, um, Bubba's at maybe 7 on the 15th? Is that place still there?
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 7:03 PM on August 10, 2009

Oh yeah, Bubba's has become somewhat of a downtown staple. 7:00 on the 15th it is.
Let's smash our previous attendance record!

I'm in NYC normally but on August 15th, I'll be in Point Nipigon, visiting my parents! If Traverse City were closer, I'd drag my brother (who is a MeFite as well) out to this meet up!

Have fun!

Fingers crossed--though somehow I managed to choose a date just before speicus arrives. Oh well.

That's too bad. misanthropicsarah and MaritaCov, will you be able to make it?
posted by Dr-Baa at 12:24 PM on August 13, 2009

It depends on how late these things usually go. I figure I can get there 8:30 at the earliest. I'd be coming from a family reunion in Harrison, but spending that night in Cadillac so I don't have too far to drive afterward if it goes late.
posted by MaritaCov at 5:05 PM on August 14, 2009

We can start this later if that's better.

Aww man, I missed everybody. I stopped by at 7:20 but I was the only one there.
posted by Dr-Baa at 5:42 PM on August 15, 2009

I didn't meet anyone, either. I asked around, but everybody gave me strange looks. I was the redhead knitting a sock if anybody saw me.
