Well, it's official, my house is on the market as of yesterday, and it looks like we'll be moving out to the east coast sometime this fall. I'd like to meet up with my Mefi friends for at least one last big bash. What say ye, Madison, Wisconsinites?
In response to a post, I've successfully compelled my wife to celebrate Frida's 100th birthday tonight at Frida's on State St here in Madison, Wisconsin. No planning or thought has gone into making this a real Mefi meetup. Our reservations are for 7pm. If you're in the area, drop by and say hi. I hear margaritas are cheap tonight, or something (I'm not a drinker).
Reminder: This Thursday night, at wonderful Wonder's Pub in Madison, WI, is a Metafilter Meetup. Raise your hand if you're showing up. Remember to try and email some local folks that may not see this thread.
The Date: Thursday, August 24th. The Time: 7:00pm-ish. The Place: Wonder's Pub, Madison, WI (We've marked where we think it is here). [more inside]
Any interest in a Mefi gathering in Madison, WI before the students show back up? Our last meeting was last September, and we had to juggle our location based on the omnipresence of the student body. Is it too soon to talk about this, or should we wait until August?
Remember: this Friday night, in glorious Madison, WI, we're planning a Mefi meetup. The general feeling is that the Up North Bar, which is right near the Essen Haus. Apparently, they have a patio, darts, and various dead animals hanging on the wall.
A new Madison, WI meetup to welcome new Mefites to the area? What do you say?
Reminder: Madison MeFi Meetup, this Saturday, January 29th, c.9:30pm, at Jolly Bob's, 1210 Williamson St. [more inside]
Anyone interested in a Madison meetup? I'm pretty new around here, and would like to meet some of y'all. [+]
Photos from the Madison meetup on Saturday. We were a small group compared to last time, but fun was still had.
Madison, WI meetup: 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 20th at Nick's Restaurant (226 State St.). Other folks in the area are, of course, welcome. The last one kicked ass - be there or be a polygon with angles of 90 degrees and sides of equal length! (Previously discussed in this thread)
You know, I had quite a wonderful time at the last Madison, WI meetup. So how about another one?
Saturday evening's meetup at the Great Dane brewpub in Madison, WI was a success. Fun was had. Beer was consumed. Photos were taken.
Sadly - or perhaps deservedly - the Madison Meetup thread got shoved off the page. Last I heard, we were too wimpy to even come up with a date, much less a time. Can we begin again here? [no more inside].
All these meetups going on make me want one too. Madison? Upper Midwest? [more inside]
Since it got bumped down below the front page, here it is again: Madison Metafilter Meet tonight. The Plaza. Nine P.M. Who's coming? Should we wear name-tags?
Madison/Upper Midwest meetup. Is there any interest in this?
