I'll offer Tuesday, March 25, 6:30, at Tabard Inn. Just a suggestion, of course.

Oh, crap. How about Tuesday, March 30, instead?
posted by MrMoonPie at 10:06 AM on March 26, 2004

Oh, crap again! I can't do it then. I'll be at the Improv's open mike night (not performing, I assure you). We could meet there, instead, though it's not very conducive to conversation. How about Thursday, April 1?

This thread is not going well so far Moon.....

Does it have to be a Tuesday or Thursday? Are you free any, say, Wednesdays or Mondays?

(any date is good by me right now except wed march 31)

April 1 is fine actually. And apt.

Seems like it's meetup fever around here lately. But that's good. Have fun, be sure to take lots of pictures and tell us about it.

"AxMe"...yargggggggg. Am I the ONLY one whom that drives insane and always reads "axe me?"
posted by jmd82 at 11:10 AM on March 26, 2004

I do that on purpose, jmd, to drive you, specifically, insane. It's how I get my kicks.

Wiki it and I'll follow along. I haven't planned that far ahead yet, but if I'm free on the date you decide on, I'll be there.

As much as I'd like to meet some of you local yokels, I REALLY want an excuse to go to Tabard, so please don't change that part of the event :)

I thought you got kicks from cat/dog kung foo movies, MrMoonPie! :)

I will try to come, since last time I met this really hot guy. Hey, didn't we also decide last time that this time no one would be allowed to wear pants, or everyone had to wear pants, or someone else's pants, or something like that? I remember talking about pants.
posted by onlyconnect at 12:35 PM on March 26, 2004

I think we talked about how that hot guy wanted to get in your pants.

I'm in (unless i have something come up at the last minute AGAIN). Anyplace metro-able is fine...is Tabard that place around the corner from Lucky Bar?
posted by JoanArkham at 1:02 PM on March 26, 2004

JoanArkham: Yes, Tabard Inn is just down N Street about a block or 2 from Lucky bar.

Coincidentally, in a hurry to get out the door from work to go meet said hot guy, I have now spilled tea all over my pants. Ick.
posted by onlyconnect at 3:06 PM on March 26, 2004

Since the last meetup, I've (1) gotten married, (2) gotten a new job, and (3) moved. So, yeah, I've got stuff to talk about.

And now that I live in the District I can be anywhere at anytime, so count me in!

so NOW we have a meetup in DC, after I've left. fine. be that way.

seriously sorry I'll miss it :(

I've forgotten how to do the Wiki (do the Wiki!) but I'll most likely be there. The dinner menu seems, er, pricey though.
posted by JoanArkham at 8:44 AM on March 27, 2004

i'll try to remember pants this time so i can actually join you guys...though i'm feelin' a bit lite in the MeFite lately.
posted by danOstuporStar at 12:00 PM on March 27, 2004

whoa, that place does look expensive...but hey they let tub girl in, so i guess they've got a beer or two i could afford.
posted by danOstuporStar at 12:04 PM on March 27, 2004

Tabard is not the place to go for a meetup if dinner is involved. The food is AMAZING, but yes, it is VERY pricey. But it is a great place to grab drinks and hole up in a little room and chat and laugh.
posted by terrapin at 1:09 PM on March 27, 2004

Oh yes, I don't think we should count on dinner there.....we could stumble over to Lucky Bar or the Big Hunt for greasy bar food if we get hungry.
posted by CunningLinguist at 7:45 AM on March 28, 2004

I was figuring on grabbing an empanada or three at Julia's beforehand, then just drinking at Tabard.

I'll call it...

Tabard Inn, 6:30, Thursday, April 1. Look for the 6'5" guy with the long ponytail who answers to the name of "Mike" (that'll be me).

Try to grab one of the big cushy couches willya? I probably can't get there until about 730
posted by CunningLinguist at 7:31 AM on March 29, 2004

I just said basically the same thing on the wiki. (About a hopeful ETA of 7:30, not the couches, though I too am in favor of cushy couches.)
posted by onlyconnect at 8:02 AM on March 29, 2004

Note that MonkeyFilter folks are also welcome!

Is this Thursday actually working for people? The wiki hasn't really changed in a while. Are people torn between the Tabard and watching The Apprentice?
posted by onlyconnect at 10:00 AM on March 30, 2004

I'll be there, because that's the kind of guy I am. One who shows up. Yup, that's me -- there. WAY there.
Though I will leave early if no one else shows up. Hey, I'm that kind of guy, too.
posted by MrMoonPie at 7:10 AM on March 31, 2004

I'll do my best to show, but weeknights are not good for me usually.
posted by terrapin at 8:48 AM on March 31, 2004

It's today, folks! Get ready to fashion artsy shout-out napkins from scratch!
posted by onlyconnect at 9:28 PM on March 31, 2004

See you tonight!
