Cleveland Meetup May 14, 2010 1:24 PM   Subscribe

It's been over two years since the last meetup in Cleveland, Ohio. Let's Change that.

Location ? Date ? We can hash out the details in the thread.

My only pony is that I would like a place that has a patio.

I am all for this, except it's only been a year. You were there! Were we that unmemorable? (sound of poignant violins...)

Definitely patio.

Would strongly prefer if it were not the week after Memorial Day because the Arthur Family will be in NYC that week.

You can party on our deck -- it's time for a little payback. (I kid, of course. I wouldn't subject any of you to my neighbors. Sigh).

I am moving to Cleveland towards the end of the summer, for a year or two. Where are the Mefites in Cleveland .. East or West siders? I'll be an East-sider. I won't make this one but maybe we can do it again in the fall.

I think we skew more West but as an east sider I always think that. East side represent (throws middle class homeowner gang sign)!

Aww.... *blushes* It really felt like it was so long ago, in 2008 !

I would be up for another of these! The last one was a good time.

Count me in.

I'm in Akron, but would happily drive up, depending on venue and relative child-friendliness. (Which I realize could be a dealbreaker for some.)

If we can figure out a place with a liquor license and an area for children to mess around unimpeded, I will go there every damn Friday.

Chesty_A_Arthur, I'd join you at that joint. I'd add Saturdays if you can have a cigar on their patio.

A Winking Lizard is always -- sort of -- an option, at least semi-child-friendly and plenty of booze. I think we established last time that the one in Independence is pretty central to folks. There's not a train table or anything but there is a lizard, usually, if the other WL's are anything to go by.

chesty and Meghanc, I don't know of any places that have a liquor license + child-friendly, but
how about Prosperity in Tremont in Winking Lizard in Independence ?

Any other suggestions for venues or places ?

Either one is cool with me.

I'm going to throw out Sat, June 19 as a date. Thoughts?

There's another online meetup that I'm going to on that date, but I should be able to at least make an appearance on ours; however, I can't make the 25-27th.

How about Prosperity then ?

Let's go with: Prosperity, June 19th, at 5:00 PM ?

[ack. I didn't mean to have the question mark, and the implied uncertainty that it brings] in that post], here we go:

Let's go with: Prosperity [in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood], June 19th (Saturday), at 5:00 PM
posted by fizzix at 12:06 PM on May 24, 2010

Yes! Let's meet up there and then. (MeghanC, if you're bringing little kid/s I will make a point of bringing mine so we have a matching set.)
posted by chesty_a_arthur at 7:45 AM on May 25, 2010

Gnah! That will teach me to not check MeFi obsessively. I cannot make 6/19 at all, but will nod in your general direction.

Three Ohio meetups in the space of a month and they're all on days I've got booked. Feh.

I should set up a Toledo meetup for June 5th and someone else should do an Athens one June 26. We'll form a symbol of power throughout Ohio and bind it to MetaFilter's will.

Sadly, I am in Florida 6/19, so I'm out. Curse you, in-laws!

(Chesty, we should still try to do a yay-kids meetup at some point. Possibly related, I recently found out that there's a beer-serving establishment at the Cleveland Zoo! I have to investigate this further.)
posted by MeghanC at 12:09 AM on June 1, 2010

I'll be working at the Clifton Arts and Musicfest that day, until around 6 or 7. I may not be able to make it, but i will do my best to make an appearance! (Never been to a meetup and have pretty much been a lurker for quite some time, but still.)

Still in.

Definitely! Zoo + Kids + Beer sounds pretty great.

I don't think I'm going to make it this time around, sorry -- a friend of mine is visiting from out of town. Next time, though!
posted by mismatched at 7:34 AM on June 19, 2010

In case anyone is thinking about showing up now, I just left because no one was there :(
posted by fizzix at 3:30 PM on June 19, 2010

Sorry. I didn't notice that it started so early. I promise to pay more attention next time.
posted by stuart_s at 5:09 PM on June 19, 2010

Oh no! I wasn't feeling well, and didn't have ready computer access to de-RSVP. I'm so sad that you wound up totally stood up by ... the rest of Cleveland, though, fizzix. Would you be interested in a do-over?
