Babs is located in Midtown and if I can get a rough number, they'll treat us (both in price and drink). They only have beer and wine but you can bring your own "liquid sin" and your DOG!

They also have free wireless so bring your wireless hipster pda!

treat = make a really cool meal and pull some nice wines (not treat for free)

I'm willing to give it another go.

Well I'm glad to see you finally got Midtown straightened out Manos. Babs has really good Irish oatmeal by the way. Now as for me I have to give a deposition that day and if it goes well I'll be there. If not I'll be drinking bourbons at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club which is not in Midtown.

  • Babs = wireless hipsters and irish oatmeal

Count me in, as well.

posey if no one comes and I end up eating at Soul Vegetarian're so dead

I know the guys at Bab's pretty well. They'll obsess all day long on what to make if I tell them that a group is coming (they have GREAT sweet potato fries!)

Hm. Count me in.

Dang, I wish I didn't have to work late on Fridays... after seeing your artwork, HoM, I really would like to meet you in person!

But I never get out of work before 7 PM on a Friday. How late do you think y'all will be there?

I'm in Columbia, SC (God help me), but I think I'm going to be in the ATL that weekend. I'm moving to Atlanta in May, so it would be nice to know some folks outside of the law firm crowd (oh how I love my law firm crowd though).

Would some kind soul mind emailing me (email's in the profile and, yes, it's just like the hospital) if this thing looks like it's going to happen? I'd like to actually meet some mefites (esp. as a member of the Great November 2004 Proletarianization who was nonetheless a longtime reader before the that Day of Infamy).

(Sweet jesus, Hands of Manos, that's quite a profile... awesome.)

Oh posey has a nice profile too. Damn you Atlantans!

Socratic, the CAE ain't so bad...

Blast it...I think I already committed to rock climbing that evening, though I might be able to move it to another Saturday or Sunday of that weekend. If I can, I'll be there!

shoepal - No, the CAE isn't so bad, but I'm from the, er, GSP (the G part), and it's just not the same without the mountains. Besides, "our" traffic is worse than Atlanta's, if only because all the highway intersections seem designed to require reflexes and driving ability found only in NASCAR elites.

(heh.. NASCAR elites...)

I have another function that evening, but I may be able to squeeze another couple o hours o fun in. Count me as tentative (especially since it's just down the road from work).

Hey guys,

email me here: (that's where I can be found on the internets)

I will try to be there from 7-12 (I know the managers pretty well and they'll let me hang out there a while).

I'll have my laptop there with a little sign that says MeFi on it and will probably be drawing. You really can't miss me...I've got a bald head, horn-rimmed glasses, goatee, ravishly good-looking (well, that's what I tell myself in the mirror each day while I brush my teeth) and will probably be in the lounge area of Bab's.

Bab's is small, quaint and DO NOT PAY FOR PARKING! The Valet boys have a set up with Bab' one pays parking for them (Bab's pays it).

(I'd suggest to have it at the other place, but it's too damn big and too hard to find everyone).

Rats, rats, rats. I'm in Athens, but would gladly trek west to meet folks. But, March 4th sees PDQ Bach descending on the Classic City.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for the next meetup.
