Mexico City Meetup this week?

I'l be in Mexico City this weekend, and would be great to meet the Mexico Mefites again. Friday the 27th would be best for me, and I guess somewhere in the Condessa area is as good as any.

I could do Friday; Wednesday or Thursday would be better, but whatever works best for the crew.

Count me in. Any day is fine, but Thursday/Friday sounds better.

Oh no! I'm only visiting here until Tuesday morning. That would've been fun.

This week is a bit complicated for me, but I'll make an effort to make it.

That's bad timing, umbú. Next time propose a meetup too!

wtf with my verbs. Sorry, i'm sick and sans-caffeine.

On second thought, Thursday may not be a great idea: Local gabachos, at least, might likely have expat-Thanksgiving plans.

Friday, then? Does anyone know if the others visit MetaTalk at all? Perhaps someone should MefiMail them. (I nominate donpedro, he has the knack)

heh, I'm going to be in DF for thanksgiving, so thursday is not possible for me either.

Oh I guess we could as well meet at the Groove again.
posted by dhruva at 5:06 PM on November 23, 2009

Friday? OK. Groove? OK. What time? And Cobalt, you can do you own damn legwork, I gotta go to bed :)

That reads a little weird by light of day. To be crystal clear, I was kidding.

Too late for regrets, gringo. We meet at the Zócalo for a food fight at dawn...ish.

Six-shooters at Cantina La Ópera, chilango scum. I'm talkin' Pancho Villa-style.

(For what it's worth: I messaged a few folks who were at the 10th anniversary shindig and haven't popped up in this thread yet.)

If we can get this nailed down, a little sidebar action might help the cause too.

I'm game, I think, but am I right in assuming we're not quite in agreement on the location yet?
posted by Joakim Ziegler at 5:36 PM on November 24, 2009

Friday I can go, but yes, why not a different place? La Opera is a nice option.
posted by Locochona at 5:52 PM on November 24, 2009

Where is La Opera?
posted by dhruva at 7:33 PM on November 24, 2009

It's a cantina in the Centro Historico where Villa shot a bullet into the ceiling; the hole's still there. I only meant to suggest that Cobalt and I work out our grudge there, but if people want to take this meetup thing out of the Condesa (advantage for most folks: more convenient) and to the Centro (advantage: variety of surroundings), that could work.
posted by donpedro at 8:32 AM on November 25, 2009

I'd prefer Condesa (I'm staying way out of town, it'll be pain to get back), but any other place, other than Groove is also fine.
posted by dhruva at 4:51 PM on November 25, 2009

So are we on?
posted by dhruva at 6:24 AM on November 27, 2009

I'm free tonight and can make it. Just say when and where.
posted by donpedro at 9:43 AM on November 27, 2009

OK, taking the bull by the horns here. Let's call it 9 p.m. at Don Keso in the Condesa. I'll be there and hopefully folks will show up; if not, I'll just enjoy the copies of the New Yorker that my friend Matt imported a couple of weeks ago, no worries.

Location is at the corner of Amsterdam and Parras, between Parque México and Parque España. I'll call the owner now to reserve a table. Google Maps.

Alright see you there.
posted by dhruva at 1:49 PM on November 27, 2009

Events are conspiring against me, but I'll do my best to go. I won't be able to arrive before 23:00, though. See you all tonight.
posted by Cobalt at 1:57 PM on November 27, 2009

I can't make it guys, sorry. Have fun!
posted by clearlydemon at 2:07 PM on November 27, 2009

Couldn't make it because of work issues intervening at the last moment, but how was it?
posted by Joakim Ziegler at 1:39 PM on November 30, 2009

Ended up being just dhruva and me, but as we largely sat on opposite ends of the room at the Groove meetup, it was a pleasure to be able to get to know him this time. Fun mellow evening; come back soon, dhruva.

Igualmente, Señor!
