December BlogMeet?

Who's got a free weekend? I'm giving 3 Jan 2010 serious consideration.

Update: Shermlock's got an excellent notion: A Pre-BlogMeet BlogMeet 20 December at Rock Bottom on 86th St (1500 hours?) and a 3 January BlogMeet. How's Brugge sound for the 3 Jan?

But ... wouldn't that make it the January blogmeet?

/nitpick

In all seriousness, Jan. 3rd would probably work for me.

I'm in! I'm in!

Shermlock Shomes said...

Jan. 3rd. is cool.

BUT if anyone is around Dec. 20th, I'd be cool with a pre-BlogMeet BlogMeet and meet over at the Rock Bottom on 86th St. as they have tapped an 'almost' Imperial IPA called Old Curmudgeon (a cousin of Old Grouch?) that is worth drinking.

Probably works. So would the 20th of December, as suggested by Shermlock (and I like the proposed venue).

"Old Curmudgeon" sounds like they had me in mind. Perhaps I should spend more time up there conducting optics and fluids experiments.

If my dad drank beer I would get him a case of that stuff, just for the name. He's an oddly good-natured grouch.

I may or may not be able to make it on the 20th. I have a lot of baking to do that weekend, and family obligations the day before. So put me down for a maybe.

I'm good for both (actually, all 3) Sundays. As they say, the more the merrier!

Old Grouch said...

And I always wanted to be an Old Curmudgeon, but had to keep looking up how to spell it...

I'm good with a double!

Shermlock Shomes said...

Brugge! Fries! With that great curry dipping sauce!

Joanna said...

Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else get a weird vibe at Brugge? Like it's darker inside than it should be for the available lighting? Kinda gave me the willies last time.

Roberta X said...

Joanna, it's the dark penumbra of the Belgium Hoax, of course! Either that or the really huge overhang at most of the windows.

Joanna said...

Dangit, I like Brussel sprouts.

Joanna said...

Plus the walls are painted a lovely, light-absorbing purple. It's like they want people to trip over the furniture.

Hey, it's Broad Ripple... what did you expect?

Snow to the tune of 18"-24" is being forecast starting tomorrow (18 DEC) evening. Sorry folks, Probably not gonna include me.

Having lived in State College for seven years, I know where you're coming from. Nothing like snow there in PA!

I will be wandering through Indy on my way to Florida to visit family. I might need a directional hand to get there. I figure I could be a shoo in for the traveling trophy.
