ISO Beijing MeFites. Must have big thirst.

Anyone up for a meet-up sometime before July 1, maybe Thurs June 24 or Tues June 29? Open for suggestions on location -- NLGX or thereabouts?

Always available, and live close to NLGX so that would certainly suit me.

I'm here studying until August, but I don't know anything about the city! I'm in Wudaokou and would love to meet some Mefites.

Hearing no objection, let's shoot for Tues June 29. Abiezer, any suggestions for a good location?

There's a place called Alba on Gulou Dong Dajie (鼓楼东大街) a few metres east of the northern entrance to NLGX. It has a pleasant roof terrace; drinks are cheap(ish) and they do food if anyone wants. It has wifi and they don't mind me taking my dog. Various other places only a short stumble away.
Saw bokane yesterday and sure he'll be along too.

Alba it is. June 29, say 7:30?
posted by hawkeye at 3:53 PM on June 21, 2010

Good for me!

Turns out bokane won't be in town - shall we pad the meet-up with a few lurkers? I know a few. Not that I mind if we're merely a very select band.

I'd just like to say I'm very upset I'm missing this--I'll be arriving in Beijing for a trip on the 1st and this could have been my first meetup! Oh well, maybe another time.

Hope ya'll have fun.

I'll try to be there, I'd love to meet other Mefites in Beijing!

Lurkers a-okay with me. See you all tonight!

Heading over shortly.

And meet we did - hawkeye and so much modern time were delightful company, and various interlopers and canines made up he numbers on a soupy night in downtown Beijing.

This was very fun, we should definitely do this again! Perhaps we will even venture out 50m past Abiezer's abode. XD

I refuse to believe such places exist, smmt.
posted by Abiezer at 10:36 AM on June 29, 2010

Darn it! I just missed it. I will be there next week!

A thoroughly enjoyable outing. Looking forward to doing it again, and soon.
