What is it with Bay Area Mefites visiting St. Louis for weddings? Weird.

Arg! The KC MeFites and the STL Mefites had vague plans for a CoMo meetup sometime in the not-so-distant future. Would've been nice to do it next week so you could (maybe?) join us, if you felt like the two-hour drive was worth it (It is worth it, btw!). Next Wednesday is out for me, for sure, anyway.

Congrats schyler!

chara, make sure to make more concrete plans for a CoMo meetup soon, I'll totally be there. That's home base for my lady and I. Just don't make the meetup anytime before the first week in June, we'll be honeymooning.

I'm not in the area, but congratulations, schyler523!

I can't come! But congrats Schyler!

Sweet. Having just come from two Bay area meetups I have a sort of traveling trophy (but I'm not sure it makes sense to send it home with you).

Afroblanco, I just wanted to say, I love that you chose a place and time right off the bat. That definitely makes things easier! And schyler523, congratulations!

I wish I could be there but my folks are coming in for graduation and I can't blow them off for friends from the interwebs.

Congrats, schuy.

Wish you could be there jon...

Someday I'll be able to convince Katy to come to NYC to visit you and Pips.

Damn, we'll be out of town, leaving earlier in the day.

(wish us luck..we're taking the mother in laws to the Grand Canyon.)

I might be able to make it if schedule allows...can't wait to have a NoCoast meetup...should be awesome.
posted by schyler523 at 6:23 PM on May 16, 2010

We'll see if I can make it. Might have a 7:30 meeting for the Jazz Education Network Conference that starts the following morning. It would be nice to have a night out though...

Oh come on, you started high school, right?
posted by sulaine at 7:16 PM on May 17, 2010

Nice to hear your reminiscences of StL. I would come out for a drink but, I manage to get back to town only once or twice a year and tomorrow won't be it.
posted by sulaine at 1:14 PM on May 18, 2010

Looks like I can make it! See you there.

The real question if anyone is checking is if it is still going on? I have work for a half hour more but I'd be up for coming down.
posted by lizarrd at 8:27 PM on May 19, 2010

Bah. I'd really wanted to be there but Friday in SF my throat started getting itchy. By Sunday I was pretty sure I was going to die and, through the magic of pressurized cabins, I probably gave whatever I had to all how ever many people you can squeeze onto an AirBus despite my best efforts to the contrary. My ears popped about four hours after we landed.

I figured I'd be selfish and not share with you all.

Considering my sleep schedule (or lack of sleep schedule) since Weds, I have to say I appreciate your selfishness, Kid Charlemagne. Any sickness would have been the last thing I could have dealt with. You were missed. I'll post photos soon.
