Adelaide meetup? June 3, 2010 2:57 AM   Subscribe

Adelaide meetup and wtf-a-podcast!

So, it's been a couple of years since the last meetup in Adelaide. Anyone keen to do it again sometime? Might be a bit colder than last time but I think there are pubs that are a good solution for that.

Same goes for Perth. I was there all of last year and now once every month or so on a weekend. Any Perth mefites about?

Oh yeah, I just discovered the metafilter podcast. I know, I haven't been paying much attention obviously. But hey, you guys rock - especially jessamyn "hey fucknuts, like, BLAAAAAAAAAAAH!", I think you owe my employers a new keyboard ;)

There's a couple of us in Perth - would be nice to catch up for a few drinks.

Bummer, I just booked a 26 June flight for a family weekend a couple of days ago. I'd have added a Friday night if that would have fitted in.
Aside: I'm loving the current airline airfare war - $28 return Sydney/Gold Coast, last week.

I wasn't at the last one since I moved to town after the last meetup, but I think it would be fun to meet other meFites! Anytime works except for the weekend two weeks from now.

To clarify: I'm talking about Adelaide, not Perth.

Depending on time and location and baby wrangling arrangements, I night be able to make the Adelaide one. Of course, I could make forza do the baby wrangling; she seems to like him. (forza and I are real life friends)

unilateral: Who was that flight with?

(and I'll see your $28 and raise you a KL-Vientiane for 0MYR plus tax)

You win. It was with Jetstar. Also, I'm coming to Melbourne late September, I'll mefimail you when and we can have a drink and I'll drop off those Zip discs.

I'm a maybe. Any thoughts on location?

Re: Adelaide -- is the city centre most central (heh) for everyone? If so, and if we're going for a pub, maybe the Exeter?
posted by forza at 6:14 PM on June 4, 2010

I think CBD or North Adelaide (The British or The Welly) is probably pretty central though I'm fine if it happens a bit to the northeast, e.g. Norwood or even Maylands. Please, not The Excreta though, it has way too many loud drunk undergraduates in it. Scoozi could be awesome for a meetup over pizza.

How about a Saturday afternoon sometime in July? Which one doesn't really bother me.

British not a bad suggestion.

Adelaide meetup? Count me in.

How are we all with the 3rd of July? Late afternoon at the British, perhaps dinner for those who want it somewhere in North Adelaide.
posted by polyglot at 4:43 AM on June 8, 2010

Earlier in the day is better for me as have child, must cook dinner for same, etc. 3-ish would do me well for a few grogs and a laugh and a half.

2 or 3 is fine by me.
posted by polyglot at 5:47 AM on June 9, 2010

2-3 at the British works for me too, with some high-ish probability.
posted by forza at 5:53 AM on June 10, 2010

The British from about 2:00 or 3:00 sounds alright by me.
posted by MarchHare at 7:19 AM on June 10, 2010

OK, I shall add it to the meetup list.
posted by polyglot at 3:07 AM on June 11, 2010

Great. I will endeavour to do this thing.
posted by Wolof at 8:26 AM on June 12, 2010

I may have visitors from overseas (yea, Mom!). If so, i doubt I'll be there. I should probably find out exactly when they're here.
posted by naturesgreatestmiracle at 2:02 PM on June 14, 2010

Meetup today!

I however have a nasty flu-type thing that probably should not be inflicted on members of the public, so I'll have to give my apologies :(
posted by polyglot at 6:05 PM on July 2, 2010

Just arrive at pub. Anyone else present?
posted by MarchHare at 10:17 PM on July 2, 2010

Hmm. "arrived". Stupid touchscreen.
posted by MarchHare at 10:18 PM on July 2, 2010

Hey, marchhare. I am here, too, but no one else. :(
posted by naturesgreatestmiracle at 10:24 PM on July 2, 2010

Ah. Well, pint then? At bar; look for a tweedy bearded man in jeans.
posted by MarchHare at 10:27 PM on July 2, 2010

Oh, piss. Daughter's ballet performances are on today, matinee and evening, so no hope there, I'm afraid.
posted by Wolof at 12:07 AM on July 3, 2010

Hmm, I showed up, but either before or after everyone else did (from about 2pm to 2:30pm)... or else you were there and I couldn't find you. (Amusingly, I think I weirded out the bar staff: "You're meeting people you've never met, but you know each other from a website? What?") Anyway, after waiting around for half an hour, I left. :(
posted by forza at 2:46 AM on July 3, 2010

Bugger. Did anyone actually meet anyone? I feel doubly bad about missing my own meetup and then it maybe not even working.

If people are keen to try again, feel free to suggest a date (not 21-25/7 or 10-23/8) and I should make it.

How about the afternoon of Saturday the 28th of August?

2-3pm to cater for those with children?

Starting another thread for that's probably the way to go.
