The Magical World of Meetup June 4, 2010 2:11 PM   Subscribe

Yay, I'm traveling to Anaheim for a conference! Let's meetup on Tuesday, June 8, 2010.

Unless others have objections, I propose we go to someplace just outside the Magic Kingdom™ proper. Mostly, I suspect we will drink or eat dinner. But if enough people make it perhaps we can go bowling.

My credit card got skimmed at Disneyland at the last MeFi meetup there, so yes please be sure to do out outside the magic kingdom.

Ooh, this sounds like a good opportunity to attend a socal meetup that isn't in westside LA! I'm down. If you wanna go bowling, Lucky Strike lanes at the Block of Orange is supposed to be good, though I haven't been there before.

When I went to disney world one of the bars tagged on a $120 tip on a $9 mixed drink :(

This is why I want to go outside of where the conference is holding us hostage going on. :)

I know nothing about the area so any suggestions of where to go for drinks/dinner are welcome. The Olde Ship or The Pint House look interesting from the web.

Also, I will not have a rental car with me, but willing to take a 15 minute cab ride or public transport if it exists.

Ooh, I've never been to the Pint House, but it looks good, and it's in downtown Fullerton, which is crammed to the gills with bars, restaurants and art galleries, so there are plenty of options there. Plus, it's just a short ride up from Disneyland. Just take the OCTA 43 bus up Harbor Blvd, and it will drop you in the Fullerton Park and Ride, right in the middle of downtown Fullerton.

Honestly, aside from Marri's Pizza, I don't know of any restaurants that aren't stuffed with tourists around Disneyland, and downtown Fullerton is more fun and dynamic (plus easier to get to) anyway. While Marri's serves great pizza, I think it's next to a laundromat in a strip mall.

Awesome, thanks for the bus info malapropist!

An Orange County meetup that doesn't get hijacked and moved to Hollywood? Nice.

Depending on where/when it is, I'll try to make it.

Don't forget that Tuesday is the CA primary election, too.

Awright, I feel a meetup of 3+ coming on! Got any preferences, Bigfoot? I assume we'll have the final details sorted by Monday afternoon (once folks are back at work and wasting time on MeFi).

Fullerton is much better for me. No real preference as to the venue.

Yknow I've always kinda wanted to try the Olde Ship, but never got around to it. Plus it seems like a nice chill place for a meetup, some of the other bars in downtown Fullerton are on the louder and frattier end of the spectrum.

Please tell this story.

OK, The Olde Ship it is, Tuesday, June 8th. Shall we say 6:30 pm start, with late-comers welcome?

This is the MeFite you will be looking for.

I've made it to California, hope to see some folks tonight!

Thanks for showing up, AV, and for making sure my turtlegirl made it back to her hotel safely!

Yeah, thanks to malapropist, Bigfoot Mandala, Ambrosia Voyeur and contraption for turning up, I had a great time! Pictures from my camera will be posted when I'm reunited with the correct USB cable, sometime this weekend.

That was a fun time! I'm glad we got to go!
