Do you recall the name of the round Rock meetup?

I set up a group on Facebook, Austin area Mustachians.  Please join!!

Great! But how do you feel about making it a private group? I myself and I would imagine others would prefer to keep the mustachian stuff unknown to coworkers/bosses for example and an open group shows up on your profile (I think).

I considered making it private, but then it won't be searchable, so joining would be difficult.  Perhaps start as a closed group, then switch to private once it's a bit more established?

It's your group so up to you. Nothing stopping you from having two groups though, right? One private, one open.

I would think most people will find out about the FB groups here too.

If there's both a private and an open group I would imagine events could be posted in both groups. I'm not a facebook pro though so I don't really know the best way to do this stuff.

OK, so my group is a closed group, which means that someone can search for the group and see who is in it, but not see posts.  The next level would require someone to either friend me or someone else in the group in order to get in.  Not practical for this purpose, in my opinion.  But you are welcome to start your own group and see how that goes?  I'm not interested in "owning" any group, so everyone who joins is being made an admin, so they would all have full rights to the group.

So far, I've got four members!  Lol.

Fwiw, I am comfortable with IRL meetups where I tell individuals who I am, but prefer not to have my actual identity visible in MMM online groups.  To me the ability to say more of what I want comes from maintaining anonymity to some extent. 

I guess it was years ago when Facebook was so egregious about opening up people's privacy settings but it just doesn't feel like a private space to me.

I'm on the same page as you. I could do a secret facebook group that isn't searchable/discoverable by just anyone or an email list where everyone is BCC'd though.

Also don't mind talking to people IRL and deciding what to share with them, but do mind this info about me being easily found by anyone online.

I abandoned social media a long time ago due to the excessive drama load. Please crosspost any finalized(ish) plans here.

Still open to doing something at my house, but if y'all wanted something a little more central, how about Blue Baker in the arboretum?  They have a huge indoor seating area, perhaps get together early afternoon?

Ah, I miss going to Blue Baker and getting their day old breads.

FInding good bread has been a challenge.  Hubby really likes their version of Italian Bread, so we will often run in when nearby to check on the day old bread.  I've got hubby trained now, he works in College Station from time to time, which is where Blue Baker originated.  Last week, he came home with two loaves of Day old Italian bread.  It's now portioned out and in the freezer, for the next time he wants a sammy.  :)

Freebirds originated there as well. I attended Texas A&M.

Show of hands, who is available to meet at Blue Baker on 2/4 at 3 PM?  Or shall we defer to another time and place?

Here's a direct link to the Facebook group in case anyone's having trouble finding it!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/389828901354772/

We will cross-post but it's easier to coordinate with people on a format that isn't these forums (the email notifications aren't great, people forget to check back)
