It was nice meeting you all. My apologies about having to leave so early.

Posting to follow.  DH and I have lived in the Dallas area for a little bit now and I would love to get in if another meetup is planned.

Anyone still monitoring this thread?  I live in NE FTW and just checking in to see if there is much local activity here.

Well it's probably time to do another meetup. I'm voting for March 25 or April 15. Any interest?

Long time MMM reader living in N Fort Worth... Wish I would have looked for this a long time ago (been here for 6 years now)... but alas, I must move to the promised land, yes, that land approx 15 miles south of Longmont, CO, where I can live in the wise ones shadow.  JK, but seriously, I am moving to Denver area and wish I could have met some of you people before this, I'll be gone by the end of March.  You guys all take care and keep the FIRE dream alive!

Dude, good for you. DFW sucks for recreational activities unless you like going to malls and restaurants all the time. Getting a house in the mountains west of Denver/Boulder is our FI/RE plan.

So 1 vote for 3/25, 1 for 4/15, 2 votes for either, and 1 vote to FIRE in Colorado.

I probably should have also asked for location preferences. We're in east Dallas

First time checking in here.  My brother and I currently live in Irving (Las Colinas).  I am definitely down for a meet up any day and time.  The only thing that may prevent my attendance is some travel (pleasure) I've been putting off for far too long.

I'm in Royse City, so East is preferred on the weekend.
I work in North Dallas, so more central works better during the week.

How about 3/25 at the same place we did last time - Intrinsic BBQ and Brewery in downtown Garland?

Lunch or dinner?

I'd like to go to this meetup. Intrinsic sounds good, I don't have a preference between lunch or dinner.

The date and location work for me.  I would prefer lunch, but dinner would also work.

I would love to attend.  Evenings are better to work around the kids' sports schedules.  I'm in Tarrant county, so somewhere west of downtown is preferable, but I'm flexible on location date and time.

I'll be visiting Dallas that week for a work trip. If my schedule permits, are visitors welcome?

Not sure if I can attend, so my vote doesn't really count, but what about late lunch time? Anyone bringing kids?

I'm sorry, I won't be able to make this one.  My wife is on bedrest from a fluke exercise injury and can't get into the specialist until the first week of April.

Treat it like a really awkward blind date. The other people looking lost are probably yours.

I'll be wearing a red Star Wars shirt.
