Mefites, non-Mefites, lurkers, friends, family, and pets are welcome, as are stray animals and homeless persons dragged in off the street. We might go someplace else for food or alcohol later in the eve.

Woo hoo!

Sweet. I'm in. What is the address on that Arabica? I've not lived here very long...

I'm practicing my astral projection technique; if you see a shimmer in the corner - that'll be me.

Excellent, sciurus! (Wasn't the jakelope a [brilliant!] comedy sketch on the State or something?)

I usually find U Circle Arabica by nose, so I'm not good at directions. Here's the address and map:

University Circle Arabica, 11300 Juniper Rd., off Ford which is off Euclid at Mayfield Rd.

On preview, JINX! ...with riffola.

taz and riffola and any other ethereal beings, I hope to, um, seeya there. (Ghosties welcome too.)

I drove through Cleveland on Sunday.

Nice town.

The only comedy sketch I'm familiar with involving a jackalope is the one that used to be on 'America's Funniest People.' It was brilliant if by brilliant you mean campy salt-of-the-earth American nonsense. =)

Thanks for the directions. I'll be wearing a alpaca-skin bustier and rubber spats.

when i was last at the university circle arabica, they'd just gotten a "creature from the black lagoon" pinball machine.. . pinball, pretty good coffee, and lots of chairs in weird nooks. what more can you ask of a coffeehouse?

Jeez, I better get in here quickly before the thread drops off the page...

I will almost definitely be there. How will I recognize our party, short of standing in the doorway bellowing "Shaaaaaaane!"? Which I'm not necessarily opposed to doing, btw.

Hmph. Hadn't thought of that. I'll bring some stick-on name-tags and I'll wear one. Also, I'm 6' w/ red hair. Maybe I'll make a big table sign:
It will feel like we have reservations or something swanky like that. Bellowing would work too.
