Burque/Santa Fe meetup April 9, 2010 1:53 PM   Subscribe

Anyone in Albuquerque want to get together? I'd be open to Santa Fe, too, if we can be somewhere near the Rapid Ride route.

I missed the last meetup and would like to go to one! I am open to time/place suggestions.

Absolutely. I'm new in town and have never been to a meetup.

Just don't take a wrong turn at Pismo Beach or you'll never make it to Albequerque...
(a Bugs Bunny reference from a guy who lives near Pismo Beach and hears the "wrong turn at Albuquerque" line ALL the time... carry on...)

I'm in Santa Fe. I might be interested in a meetup if there are enough people. Plan something for a few weeks out so I can make sure my schedule's clear. :-)

I've never done one of these before!

I'm down. I'm in Albuquerque.

Also I recommend MeMailing people, otherwise they might not notice this thread. For the 10th anniversary meetup I compiled a list of some of the ABQ/Santa Fe Mefites, it might help:

hellslinger, metacollin, wanderingmind, yohko, melvix, aint broke, joedan, stoneweaver, Sara Anne, dual_action, Noelle, treeshade, crazyhorse, jabo, monkey.pie.baker, pointilist, The Cardinal, MNDZ, backwords, kylefreund, mullicious, vorfeed, metajack

We'd probably want to put this out about 3 weeks or so, probably the week of the 2nd. Blackbird Buvette or O'Niell's would be my venue suggestion.

Thanks for the ping, stoneweaver. I prefer O'Neill's, but Blackbird is good too. If we do O'Neills and Sundays work for people, we could do it in the afternoon/evening and stay for Geeks Who Drink, if anyone's interested in pub quiz.

Just noticed this. Blackbird is walking distance to the train station, which is a plus for anyone thinking of coming down from Santa Fe.

There's Geeks Who Drink at Blackbird too, Tuesdays at 7pm. Team BEANPLATE?
posted by signalnine at 6:58 PM on April 17, 2010

That sounds great. How about Tuesday the 4th?
posted by joedan at 10:37 AM on April 18, 2010

Sounds good to me. I'm okay with anytime after 5pm.
posted by signalnine at 10:01 PM on April 18, 2010

Ok, how does 6:00 Tuesday May 4th at Blackbird sound to everyone?
posted by joedan at 11:31 AM on April 19, 2010

Sounds good to me!

Sounds good to me too.

I'm up for it, won't be there until around 7:00 though. Save me a seat if you can, I assume the pub quiz nights get crowded.

I'll see you guys tomorrow. I'll be wearing a Metafilter shirt and either a cape or something equally flamboyant.
posted by NoraReed at 1:50 PM on May 3, 2010

You should spell out "tl;dr" in bedazzles on your cape.
posted by signalnine at 7:22 PM on May 3, 2010

My TL;DR shirt gets more questions from strangers than any other article of clothing I own. Except the cape. I think if I combined those two it might cause a singularity of so may people asking me questions that the world would cave in.

How was the meetup? Wish I could've joined you guys! (Blackbird Buvette was a good choice, making it especially sad I couldn't come)

Music round, you say? What kind of trivia? Between Mrs. filthy light thief and me, I think we could do some damage to that category (if not at tentative next meetup, then at some future date).
posted by filthy light thief at 10:10 AM on May 5, 2010

I think the problem with a team of mefites is that the trivia knowledge tends to be somewhat redundant.

But at least we know our sex dolls.
posted by NoraReed at 12:25 PM on May 5, 2010

I should know by now that whenever I talk myself out of an answer because it's too obvious and must be a trick question that this is a bad move. Oh well.
posted by signalnine at 9:56 AM on May 6, 2010

filthy light thief: The music rounds are largely really bad pop music from the 80s and 90s. The rest of the trivia is pretty heavily pop-culture. The other area we suck at is sports.
posted by signalnine at 9:58 AM on May 6, 2010

My wife is totally a ringer for those categories. She is a font of odd (pop) knowledge. I'd do decently in the music realm, but sports .. eh, not so much.
posted by filthy light thief at 10:26 AM on May 6, 2010

Oh look we are on their blog! I'm hiding.
