I'm moving to Tampa at the end of August, and my parents live in Orlando so I would love to go to a meetup!

Glad to see some representation in Florida! A fellow Tampa resident here.

I'd encourage all Floridians to join the Facebook group:

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

It's a closed Facebook page dedicated for all in the Southeastern U.S. Several members are from Tampa / Orlando area and there have been some active posts / dialogues / meet-ups organized.

I'd love to see about a Tampa meet-up in the near-future.

Hey folks. Moving from Chicago to Sarasota this week! Would love to meet up with some of the Tampa area folk.

I've been to a few Early Retirement Extreme meetups in Illinois and once I'm settled, would love to host a FIRE meet up in the future.

Tampa Here!

Biking to work is so easy when you can take Bayshore Blvd to Downtown. I never even have to cross the street!

1/21 or 1/22 would be good,  Location?  Time?  Can I suggest early lunch at someplace like the Brass Tap?

Early lunch on either day works for me...  Brass Tap on Mills? I've never been, but location seems pretty good.  Is it easy to get a table?

The Brass Tap at Mills and Nebraska I just threw out there for a start.  It is convenient for a large variety of beer and a few appetizers.  Lots of outdoor seating for when the weather is nice.

It does seem like there are a bunch in Central FL... yet I don't believe a meetup has occurred yet :)

CFL'ers how about we lock down 11:30 AM on 1/21 at the Brass Tap on Mills?  If we don't get more than 3 positive responses on here by 1/18, we can nix it :)

I'm in Orlando here also. The 21st is a Sat. That could work for me. I can tell my wife I'm going to work but my work doesn't start till 2:30. I could spend 2 hrs there . Just have to see what the situation befoe I can commit.
BTW, they don't open till NOON.

Hey Spitfire, I'm in Cooper City! How many more are in the Ft. Lauderdale area? Maybe we can arrange a meetup in one of the parks?

T-4 days for those Orlando Area folks!

This is definitely happening, so ink it in, even if you are a little tentative, and just let me know here (or through PM) by Friday so that we can make sure we get an appropriately sized table.

12:00 (NOON) at the Brass Tap on Mills on 1/21

Looks like there is a lot of interest, but this weekend may not work out for many, so I'll just throw out the weekend of February 18/19 for round 2? 
Open to any other dates/times as well.

I will say that I've tried to participate in other "financial" meetup groups, and have not found the "right" fit.  Folks are either looking to sell you something while others are just there to make a quick buck.  Hopefully this will lead to a good base of local folks that can help inspire/commiserate :)

Let's make it happen! 

Round 1 ended up just being dorf and me, but we had some great conversation!

Definitely a good forum to chat about FIRE and side hustles!

Anyone have a preferred day (Sat or Sun)?

How about we keep with the Sunday at Noon theme?

So 2/19 at 12:00 PM.

Location?

Some ideas that are sort of centrally located... but I'm flexible.

Mamak (http://www.mamakasianorlando.com/) is an Asian "tapas" place that usually has ample seating.
Pig Floyds (http://pigfloyds.com/) - BBQ-ish -  I think they have a patio if the weather is nice
NYPD Pizza - College Park Location

Who's in?

2nd Orlando Meetup!

February 19th, 2017
12:00 (Noon)

Mamak - 1231 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32803
http://www.mamakasianorlando.com/

The restaurant storefront is on Colonial, but there should be plenty of parking behind the building (as well as a rear entrance).

Who's in?
