Well, I just moved up here a couple weeks ago and missed the LA gathering - so yeah, why not.

(Not to hijack this thread or anything, but) I find myself wondering - and I don't think it's worthy of a thread of its own, since Metatalk is not IRC) how this sudden profusion of MeFi gatherings will change the dynamic around here, if at all. Perhaps a return, if in a fractured, geographic, slightly tribal way, to those hallowed days of yore, back beyond the shimmering veil, when MeFi was an a-list playground (yes, my tongue is firmly in my cheek), and more people actually knew one another IRL (or did they - I may be mischaracterizing), and free-roaming cabals struck fear into the hearts of the unwary...

Pull your head out, fuckwit.

Ahem. Resident newby here - having toyed with the notion of sneaking down to NYC to really find out what all these people are like (and to prove that I exist), only to repeatedly reject the idea as unworkable/ridiculous/guaranteed to only earn me abuse - I would nevertheless be interested in a Boston do. I might even be able to bring along my wife, if only to disabuse her of the "that 'chat room' thing you're always on" notion.

So - sometime in May?

This may be a disincentive to a lot of you, but if it happens I'll show up.

Schedule permitting, I'm there.

Can we get tickets to a Sox game?
posted by PrinceValium at 2:42 PM on April 7, 2002

Not if they keep winning!
posted by yhbc at 3:45 PM on April 7, 2002

I may be able to make it

Of course I won't if Rodii is coming. What with the urine drinking and all. I can't keep one eye on my drink all the time.

We can go to the MFA and get kicked out!!

Been wating for Boston to get catch up with Seattle, LA, NY, London, Atlanta folks. Count me in.

Red Sox tickets. I'm game.

I have some contacts for RedSox tix - let me see what I can come up with. (don't worry, pikachulolita, we'll just treat this as a "warm-up" for your arrival in the fall)

I'll be going back home (southern New Hampshire) sometime this summer. Since the response to my efforts at getting a Salt Lake gathering have been less than stellar, I'd like to join you folks if the timing is right.

As long as it is before September 1, when I bring balance to owillis' MeFi Continental Translocation by moving back to LA, I'm all for it.
