gimme gimme gimme.

Before April 22 is my request. And beer is my other request.

I'm about 1.5hrs away, and since there are so few Chattanooga-area MeFi-ers (1 maybe 2), would you mind including us too?

I wouldn't mind at all, especially since Chattanooga is (almost) my hometown. But come on.... surely there are more than just three of us.... you think?

Well, if we want to be traditionally Atlantan about it, you can't get much better than Manuel's Tavern on North Highland. Good beer, excellent burgers...

Or we could accommodate those in the far-flung reaches and meet somewhere a bit more northerly.

I'll vote for Manuel's.

That's just a hop skip 'n a jump from me. Perhaps we can accomodate the 'northern suburbs' like chatanooga and athens by holding the event on a weekend afternoon / evening(?)

If we're going to do something outside the perimeter, I'm going to need a ride.

I would be all over this, so is this going to happen or what?

I say we do this a week from Saturday. The 20th. Make it an afternoon thing, like around 2pm. That is before zpousman's mysterious April 22 deadline, and in keeping with the weekend accomodation of any out-of-townies.

Now, Manuel's is great, but what do we say to moving it a block and a half down the street to the Hand in Hand pub on North Highland. The one thing they have that Manny's lacks is a good outdoor patio, and perhaps the sunshine will be agreeable. I mean, we spend so much time indoors and hunched over these things, so we owe it to ourselves to get the heck outside. Yes?

Sounds good to me. I'll check back in a few days to see if we've changed our minds. Hand in Hand is not the most original or 'atlantan' of places -- unlike say The Brick Store (small outdoor area btw) -- but it'll do. And it does have a nice patio.

Note: My mysterious deadline is a trip to this spot. My motto: Computers are fun. Rocks are ok, too.

I don't know where any of these places are, but when a location is finalized, can someone please post the address? Us out-of-towners need to hit mapquest before we go.

Hand in Hand is located at 725 N Highland Avenue NE.

A Yahoo map is here.

If you are coming from points north, take the North Avenue exit off of I-75/85, go east on North Avenue, hang a left onto N Highland and Hand in Hand is a couple of blocks down on your left.
