Baltimorons, anyone up for an Artscape meetup?

I'm thinking the Mount Royal Tavern (central, cheap, has a beer garden during Artscape.)

I'll officially say...maybe. That's going to be a busy weekend.

How about July 30th weekend for Otakon? I'll be in town for that.

Empath - that's a little far in advance, but I'll be around. Possibly at Otakon, actually. I've been meaning to go for years.

Has there ever been a successful Baltimore meet-up? We're all a bunch of flakes.

On that note, the theater I live/work in will be performing at UB for Artscape. We're doing a play that was written by a 14 year old kid from Baybrook Middle down in Brooklyn. We've also enlisted a bunch of kids from the neighborhood [Greenmount West] to act in it. It's gonna be fun and weird.

Ooonsk ooosnk.

And cloeburner - there have been a few. Those of us non-flakes usually just head to DC and invade theirs, though.

Yeah, I agree with Al, Otakon is a bit down the line. Prolly 50/50 on me making that event proper. (Slightly higher if MegaRan is going to be back.)

I'm likely to be at Artscape all days, so I'm pretty flexible (although cloeburner's play sounds like a must-see.)

I love MRT so pencil me in.

We'll see (yes, I am a Baltimore flake).

Otakon is more my speed, but Baltimore in the summer often sucks (hot, sticky, and polluted).

Also, why is Artscape consistently scheduled for the summer's absolutely worst weekend (heat-wise/weather-wise)?

Why does it always rain during SoWeBo? It's one of life's mysteries.

I'm another Baltimore flake. I always make Artscape, but sometimes I volunteer. Never been to Otakon, but always enjoyed the costumes when I worked downtown.

So, I'm a maybe. Chance goes up if the meetup is during the day on a weekend or somewhere I can park my motorcycle.

It's a well known fact that Jesus hates anything below Saratoga Street.
