Tulsa is long overdue for a meetup. What say we get together for a post-holidays celebration of the Filter? Thinking of the second weekend in January.

I've traded some MeFi-mail with nadawi, and it looks like either Saturday the 9th or Sunday the 10th would be best for her and radiosilents. I prefer the afternoon of the 10th, but should be able to do any time after, say, 6 or 6:30 on the 9th.

I think we're leaning towards someplace downtown or maybe Cherry Street? I can throw out some ideas (downtown: Arnies, Caz's, Joe Momma's? or Cherry St. say, Kilkenny's or maybe the White Owl?) but I just moved back to town earlier this year after a decade-plus away, so I'm certainly open to suggestion.

Anyhow, let's do this, eh?

Si, let's do it. Any time is fine by me. I vote White Owl, Joe Momma's, or Campus Grill.

Oh, glad to see that, wierdo. I was a bit afraid this post was destined to slide down the front page of MeTa with no comments.

I've me-mailed everyone with their location set in the area (except the one account that had no activity - ever) so hopefully some others will pop in.

So, is the meetup in purgatoy, or in Oklahoma?

Weirdly enough, I'll be in Tulsa over New Year's, but you guys have your fun without me.

we are both very excited, no matter how many people show.

I think I'll be in Tulsa in the middle of the week before that weekend. My best friend works at Arnie's, so I'll be hanging out there. Anybody who doesn't have to worry about bed time on school nights is more than welcome to join me. Shoot me a me-mail.

PhatLobley - If you're still going to be in town that Thursday night, there's an outside shot I could swing by Arnie's for a little bit that evening.

This sounds like making a trek up I-44 is in order. My pref would be on Sunday the 10th, also, as I'm not sure I could make the Saturday night gathering. Plan at will, tho, as I will def see what I can do.

Well, I think it may be okay to go ahead and call it Sunday, January 10th at The White Owl (Google Map, yelp) at, say 3 PM? Sound good to everyone?

sounds like a plan

that sounds great for radiosilents and me.

Aww, how creepily precious...

I'll go ahead and stick this on the sidebar (first in 2010!) and hopefully some other Tulsers will shake out of the woodwork and join us.

oh man, I really wish that classes didn't start back in Dallas on the 11th, otherwise I would absolutely turn out for this. At least its good to see that Tulsa is getting some MeFi love.

Sorry to miss you, grandsham. Holler next time you're up for a visit and maybe we can string something together.

Ufez, thanks for the heads up, but I'm no longer in Tulsa.

My god, I'm going to have to get up early. ;)
posted by wierdo at 11:10 PM on December 26, 2009

Sigh. I'll be long back to the Left Coast by then. We need to do one some year when all the expatriates are in town for the holidays.
posted by dw at 11:00 PM on December 29, 2009

Bah, sorry to miss you too, dw. I'd be down for a holiday-time meetup to say hey to the expats.

Everyone else that's coming: woot, one week away. Later this week (probably Friday) I'll me-mail you all my cell # in case you need it. I'll try to get to the White Owl a little early (quarter til 3, probably). Looking forward to it!

I got called in to work, so I can't be there. Drink a nice Sundown Wheat for me! :D
