Hey DFW'rs, let's do a meetup if you're free -

When: 9/19 at 7 pm
Where Jeng Chi Restaurant in Richardson

Reply if you're in.

I'd love to but unfortunately, that's the night of the first Debate Tournament of our season so the wife and I will be busy judging! Maybe next time.

Shoot, and the restaurant is right by the Dart too!

Reply if you're in.

Can we get a rough count of who will be going? I can call the restaurant and let them know if we have a large group.

So far I see:

DeepEllumStache (Verified)
Thinkum +1 (Verified)
Blub +1 (Verified)
Philociraptor +1 (Verified)
ThinSlicer (Verified)
LDoon
chasesfish
PathtoFIRE (Verified)
clarkevii (Verified)
TexasBrit (Verified)
Rutes (Verified)
Uturn (Verified)

That is 11 people, so before I call to let them know about a big group, please verify that you'll be attending this Saturday.

Thanks!

Updated list. Since we already have 7 people verified (including our +1's), I will call the restaurant either later today or tomorrow to try and reserve a table for us.

List updated!

edit: I just called Jeng Chi and reserved a round table for 12 people or so. I will most likely get there a little before the 7pm meet time. When you get to the front, just tell them you are there for the Mustache Meetup, lol.

Got room for one more?
I've been absent from the forum for a little while, but the restaurant is just a few minutes away from me and I would love to meet some of you guys!

I'll add you to the list. I made a res for 12 and we're at about 10 right now, adding you is 11. We should be okay I would think.

Don't know if I made the list, but I'm in if you still have room. 

Offer to carpool from the west end of town is still open.

I can add you, but we're approaching our reservation limit. I'm sure they could accommodate us either way.

I enjoyed the meetup, especially those of you at the kiddie table with me (almost literally there at the end!). Look forward to the next, maybe at a park as someone suggested.

It was really nice meeting everyone as well. It was unfortunate the restaurant couldn't simply slide some tables together. We had mentioned maybe doing another meetup at a park or something, then I had brought up the Aurora show in downtown Dallas. This might be a good venue to chill out on a nice autumn evening. http://dallasaurora.com/

The kiddie table was excellent. We definitely need to meet up more often.

I'm a fan of anything close to downtown :)

Depending on how early we meet up, there are a few streets that have free street parking in Deep Ellum for those that can't ride DART downtown.

Who's up for meeting up in the Dallas Arts District on October 16th for the Aurora Art of Light show? http://dallasaurora.com/ Show starts at 7PM and will go on until 2AM. I plan on taking the DART to the event, should be a fun eclectic night.

Looks like the DART will drop us off at the Pearl Station, right on the doorstep of the Aurora show. DeepEllemStache, and anyone else going, where would you like to meet up? And what time works?

I plan to make it to the Aurora show around 8:00 and would love to meet up with some fellow Mustachians. Is there a meet up spot?

No meet up spot or time quite yet. I'm trying to get a consensus and see where that leads to. 8PM sounds fine to me though. As for the place to meet up, we should pick a corner like Peal & Ross or something.

Hey! Sorry we were walking up to random people asking if they were you but ended up heading off by 815 because we wanted to see the dancing algae.

I ended up arriving right around 8:15 so we probably just missed each other. No problem. I thought the event was really impressive.

I'm in for the next Dallas meet up - hopefully on time..

I've been away a while. Saved up a whole bunch of money under the Mustachian way of life. Spent it all -- not all, but a lot of it -- and now I'm back. Howdy, everyone! I'm sad I missed the meet up. When's the next one?

Of course we are. I'm fairly close to you in Grand Prairie, and there's quite a few folks East in Dallas and West in Ft. Worth.

Plano here - I saw 6 or 7 others on the first pages. Question for them: what is the cheapest internet-only service you have found? Seems TWC and VZN are the only options here, and I pay TWC almost $60. It's fast (130+dl/23ul) but I'm ok reducing. Thanks!

adding to follow.  I'm 2 hours away... but lived in DFW once upon a time.
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
