MSP? What country? What state/province? What city/town? Any previous discussions?

minneapolis/st. paul?

Sorry: Minneapolis/St. Paul!

I'll be sending out a reminder email momentarily to all mefites in my profile's nearby-zip-sort...those that provided addresses, anyhoo.

Calling those who initially indicated interest: ScottUltra, Zosia Blue, mr bula, norm, trharlan, COBRA!, esch, Hammerikaner, Kat Allison, specialk420, Utilitaritron... will you be there, or am I finishing the first pitcher all by myself?

Planning history....
posted by clever sheep at 11:06 AM on September 2, 2003


I plan on being there, although I might be a bit later than 7.

Joe's Garage.

Too bad there won't be any dope or LSD. Have fun with the Stratocaster and the Whammy Bar.

I'm also a redhead! But I'll be fashionably late, say 7:30 or 8. I will also be bringing a date. I will not be rhyming when I get there.

Say hi to Lileks. He probably needs it.
posted by NortonDC at 12:12 PM on September 2, 2003


is cardoso coming? he can stay at my crib if needs a place to stay - quonsar is invited too - even if he/she isn't a fan of loud crazy dangerous places. it's a shame the loring bar has been turned into a little suburban oasis - joe's will do. roof top?

I'm going to try to be there, but can't make any promises... I have a tentative production meeting that evening for a film I am working on. If that doesn't happen for whatever reason (or we finish early), count me in.
posted by ScottUltra at 12:28 PM on September 2, 2003


Definitely rooftop, if there's anything open. I'll try to be there early to snag a good table. Look for a table card that says "Mefi"!
posted by clever sheep at 1:36 PM on September 2, 2003


Sorry, I won't be attending, as I generally don't enjoy people.
posted by magnetbox at 3:24 PM on September 2, 2003


Like magnetbox, I don't enjoy people. However, as a symptom of my unenjoyment, I intend to attend, and will do my best to be a miserable jerk. I will likely be fashionably late, as well, just because I usually cannot find my keys.
posted by trharlan at 7:00 PM on September 2, 2003


I'm there. Roof top!
posted by mrbula at 8:00 PM on September 2, 2003


I was informed that my girlfriend is leaving for Ireland on Friday morning. I may or may not be attending.

(Yes, I have a pretty terrible memory.)
posted by esch at 8:12 PM on September 2, 2003


I'll be there. Here's hoping the rest of you aren't weirdos.
posted by norm at 6:45 AM on September 3, 2003


kids, I hate to drop the news, but I won't be there after all. I managed to throw my back out this morning... lots of fun & games ensuing. could someone else, such as mrbula, take point on putting out a table marker to collect the gang? I'll send out a few emails.
posted by clever sheep at 7:32 AM on September 4, 2003


Aw, c'mon, sheep, show up anyway. I'll bring pain killers.
posted by norm at 8:06 AM on September 4, 2003


Tell ya what, norm, I'll see how I'm doing about 6 or so. I really do want to go but it depends on whether I'm up to the drive!
posted by clever sheep at 9:03 AM on September 4, 2003


Yeah, sheep, I hope you can make it. (I feel like I'm vaguely insulting you by calling you "sheep"...) It's going to be a small group, but that's okay. What's our headcount, anyway? Mrbula, norm, trharlan, esch (maybe), clever sheep (maybe hopefully!) and me?

I'll also not be fashionably late anymore.
posted by Zosia Blue at 9:37 AM on September 4, 2003


Crapity crap crap crap. I won't be able to make it. Hoist one fer me.

/me kicks COBRA!'s ass
posted by norm at 1:23 PM on September 4, 2003


Hey, ouch, that's a very tender ass you're kicking.
posted by COBRA! at 1:52 PM on September 4, 2003


I'll have a "MeFi" sign on the table. It may not be standing up, but hey. (I should be there 7:30ish.) Otherwise, just look for the dorky-looking guy with a beard and glasses. That's me.
posted by mrbula at 1:53 PM on September 4, 2003


Strike that. I found a good photo of pancakes to use...
posted by mrbula at 2:02 PM on September 4, 2003


Where exactly is the ass on a cobra?

I'll be there 7:30ish, as well. I have tendency to get to things before everyone else does, so if that happens: look for the smallish redheaded girl with tallish skinny guy.

Where exactly is the ass on a cobra?

Depressingly close to the head.
posted by COBRA! at 2:27 PM on September 4, 2003


sorry i missed out. did anyone else end up making it?
posted by specialk420 at 7:51 AM on September 5, 2003


Geez, now I find out about this. Of course, if y'all had picked the Bryant Lake Bowl, I woulda run into you anyway. Maybe next time...
posted by nickmark at 8:33 AM on September 5, 2003


Yup, seven of us made it and had a great time. I'm sure they'll be another one in the works.
posted by Zosia Blue at 10:47 AM on September 5, 2003


I'm glad y'all had a good outing--the back pain meds made me sleepy & stupid early, and I was a) too afraid to drive that way, and b) scared none of you would know the difference.

So I'll just settle for organizing another Mpls get-together in a year or so!
posted by clever sheep at 11:10 AM on September 5, 2003


where's the pics? we need pics!
posted by gen at 7:34 PM on September 9, 2003


I didn't see the sidebar notice until today (9/10) -- and it sounded like a lot of fun. I hope there will be another one.

Please?
