I'm visiting a friend in Austin this weekend and would love to meet some MeFites while I'm there. What do you all say? The Ginger Man on Saturday, June 19 at 5 pm?

We may have a birthday party that afternoon, but if we're not booked, I'll see about dragging the mister down.

Hey! I'm visiting Austin this weekend too! If I can borrow a car from my awesome Grandma, I'll try to make it there. Though, given that it's a Grandma-visit kind of a trip, 5pm might be a little too early for me to make it.

I will not be able to make this but wanted to poke my head in to alert y'all Austin peeps to say that my new job will likely be sending me your way sometime in the next month. I'll post my own thread when/if that happens, but just wanted to put a bug in your ears for now.

I'm game.

I'm in as well, and I'll try to entice Mr. Peter Petridish as well.

Well, this Saturday is the 2nd Austin Saint Arnold Pub Crawl (facebook link), from 6-9. Might try to go to the meetup and then that.

My friend has reminded me that it's pretty hot in Austin, and that getting together at a pub after dinner might be a better idea. (I eat at weird hours and live in a 60 degree bubble inside SF, so I'm oblivious to these things.) Let me try again:

I'm kind of wildly overbooked on Saturday but I'll see what I can do.

I need to get $20 back into the meet-up pot, so I'll drop by briefly to hand that off.

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE GINGERMAN MOVED TO THE CORNER OF THIRD AND LAVACA ABOUT A YEAR AGO! Sorry for the shouting, but I don't want anyone who hasn't been downtown in a while to get lost!

Hubby and I are now questionable. I hurt my foot last night (not seriously), and I'm not up for anything that's going to require me to stand this weekend. I'll be sad if I miss y'all but hopefully I'll be up for a meetup when middleclasstool is here.

Hey all! My friend and I are heading out to dinner shortly, so we should be at The Ginger Man close to on time, maybe 15 min late. I don't have a Metafilter sign, but you can try to spot me by my shoulder length black hair and bright red sleeveless top.

See you soon!

We're towards the back, right before you get to the patio.

Ahhhh, come back! I just moved to the front and found out from the guy who checks ids that I already missed two of you!! :( Way to be more punctual than me!
posted by tantivy at 6:06 PM on June 19, 2010

I was one of the two who couldn't find y'all :(

We're back home now...I'll keep holding on to this lil ol' Jackson and drop him off at the next one. He sure misses y'all.

Also: wow, that place is more spacious than I expected! Once I can enjoy alcoholic libations again, I've got to be sure to go back. Be sure to let us know how the service ended up being and all that.

My mysterious unnamed friend and I had a good time meeting adamrice at The Ginger Man! Again, I'm sorry about missing a couple of people early on -- I definitely intend to come back to Austin, so I hope turnout is better next time :)

Sorry I missed it!
posted by Pants! at 9:05 PM on June 21, 2010

Fuck how the hell did i miss this. I always check these things. Why didn't anyone tell me?
posted by djduckie at 4:10 PM on June 24, 2010

In your defense, I only posted it a few days before arriving in town. Next time I'll be sure to start the discussion 4+ weeks out, at which point no one will be sure of whether they can attend!
