Mmmm... waffles and beer March 8, 2010 5:26 AM   Subscribe

Milwaukee meetup! mr. desjardins (aka empty vessel) and I would like to invite you to a brunch/lunch/whatever at our home on Saturday, April 3 (the day before Easter). We have a couple places to crash if needed.

The idea was spawned from this thread about theology, but everyone is welcome, including atheists (of which I am one). I am very happy to chat about other things.

We're in the Bay View neighborhood, one block from the lake, about a mile from I-94. If you have pet allergies, please note that we have two dogs and two cats.

I'm there. If it's okay with you guys, I'll leave after work on Friday with an ETA of around 9:30PM. If you've got an open couch, I'll be set, but I can make other arrangements if needed.

Looking forward to it.

Ooh, that sounds fun! If we're not out of town in the opposite direction, myself and Partner Boy (who might as well be on MeFi) might head over from Madison.

Doh! *facepalm*

I have off Good Friday, so I should be able to leave a lot earlier.

btw, valkyryn, in honor of you and my husband, I am definitely wearing my tl;dr shirt. :)

I'd be there in spirit, if I believed in such things.

desjardins, I'd get one, but it seems all they have left is women's smalls.

Can we get a re-up over here?

Wow, some of the responses in that thread are epically long.

valkyryn, you and my husband are the writers, so it makes more sense for me to wear the shirt.

cjorgensen - there were a lot of late nights (shades of XKCD) in the desjardins household.

I'll have to see if I can make it.
That looks like it was a really great/interesting conversation.

Since this is at our house, please RSVP so we know what we need as far as food. We're planning a brunch around 11, and y'all can stay as long as you like. Let us know if you're vegetarian and we'll accommodate as best we can. If you're vegan we'll need some guidance.

Hey- just saw this. Too late, but I probably would have made my first real life meta appearance, since I am in Bay View too.

So how did this turn out?

It went well. It was me, my husband, valkyryn, Madamina and her partner. We couldn't find the waffle maker, so we had pancakes (thanks valkyryn!), omelettes, quesadillas, blueberry muffins and hot cross buns (thanks Madamina!). Plus mimosas! There was a very civilized discussion about religion and stuff. I wore my tl;dr t-shirt but didn't have to point at it once.
