I am still in, snow or shine. Grew up in the north so it's no big deal.

Hey guys, that was a really awesome meetup. Let's do it again sometime soon, perhaps in a few months.

I agree, it was very nice to put faces on fellow Mustachians. I would love an outdoor event, preferably before the summer apocalypse^W heat is upon us.

I live on the coast of NC (Jacksonville) but I have an aunt that lives in Charlotte and could probably make a meetup in that area

Hi ace and layzbones, good to see some new names in here.  I had a great time getting to put a face to the name with ph0rque, Paul, and jpo and his girlfriend at our meetup in Durham.  I suppose meeting up at a bar wasn't the most mustachian locale but it was pretty handy given the snow we were having that weekend.  I'd definitely love to do it again and get to meetup with the Charlotte contingency too.  I'd be willing to switch up hosting locations and carpool down to Charlotte if any of the other Triangle crew are up for it.  Hopefully it won't take us as long to organize the second meetup as it did the first.

I'd be game to come down to Charlotte to meetup and I'd be willing to drive if any of the other Triangle mustachians want to carpool down there.

Ditto. Never seen Charlotte; if we can get enough people to fill up a car, count me in.

3 of us is more than enough for me to be willing to drive.  That leaves room for 2 more if anyone is interested.  Charlotte crew, when were you thinking of doing this?

I keep checking back to see if any of the other Charlotte folks have suggestions for a date.... if there is a meetup I hope to be able to come.  I'm not up to planning it or even suggesting a date because I'm having surgery in a few days. I've spent a lot of time getting ready (making extra meals to freeze, catching up on house chores and yard work) so my downtime will be less stressful hopefully. Anyway, I'll keep checking back and hope to meet you guys sometime soon!

Hi! We are in Charlotte. The Huz and I have always spent far less than we've earned but discovering MMM a few weeks ago has totally turned our philosophy upside down.

If there are people in Charlotte still wanting to meet up or people willing to come to Charlotte - we'd be happy to host a potluck picnic in our backyard. We did this for my daughter's birthday party a few weeks ago - picnic blankets and all. It was a lot of fun.

Any interest?

Unfortunately, I'm out of town for a wedding on the 23rd. In DC for a small house building workshop on the 30th.

I think if you have 3 people can make a date you should go for it. The key thing is just to get started, I'll do my best to make the second meeting.

OT--sorry: When and where is the workshop?

I will be in town the week of June 3 for work in Charlotte uptown.  I could only meet during the week at night - not sure if anyone is up for a dinner out (not super Mustachian) or something similar.

Charlotte looks to be on hold for the moment.  Any of the Triangle gang care to meetup after work sometime this week?  Maybe Monday or Thursday?

@tag that's very generous of you! There is definitely interest from us Trianglites, we just need more Charlotteans.

@fire, I can do Thursday. Where were you thinking?

Thursday would work.  I seem to recall I'm the sole Durhamite so I'd be happy to meet somewhere out in Chapel Hill or Cary if that's more convenient for everyone else.  But in that case I'll leave the exact location up to someone else.  If you want to do Durham again, maybe Bull McCabe's so we can grab some drinks?

Thursday would work for me as well. I live in Cary and work in Downtown Raleigh, for what it's worth location-wise.

Durham is the easiest for me as well, since I work downtown. I believe jpo and ph0rque are both around Cary, hopefully they can make it. See you all tomorrow at Bull McCabe then? 630 maybe?

Alright seeing the lack of enthusiasm for this one (it is pretty last minute to be fair), let's just push it back.

I propose the window of June 10-16.

Hey I'm a lurker but signed up to respond. I'm in Durham and if there is a meetup in Durham I'd be interested. I'll keep posted to see what develops.  I believe there is a free concert at American Tobacco campus June 7th, but it may be kind of noisy.

I will be around during that week but am on call. If something arises I may have to log on.

@carolinakaren - if there's a Charlotte meetup on a weekend I would still be interested in joining it and I'd be willing to drive down any of the other Triangle gang that want to go also

@Paul and the rest of the Triangle group - I'd be up to meet next week.  Would Monday or Thursday work for everybody else?

Carolinakaren and smedleysam do you guys happen to be near uptown?  I may be able to meet Friday at 4 or 5 for an hour or maybe Saturday morning early - on sat I will be 20 or so min southeast of Charlotte.  I wish I saw this post earlier!

Looks like there hasn't been any Charlotte meetup talks in a bit - but my wife and I would love to get together with any other mustachians in the area - we're in Fort Mill, SC, just over the border.

I'm not far from you guys in south Charlotte area. Last time it was mentioned there was a group of triangle mustachians who discussed carpooling down for a meet up. Hopefully we can get enough interest to justify a get together!

I would be interested in attending a meet up. It looks like I missed the previous event. I only just realized there was a setting to auto alert me to new posts. Duh.. that was stupid. I'll stay up to date from now on.

Not to be too off topic but this Duke Energy page (most people in NC are using Duke Electric) has some good discounts on LED bulbs. I bought a few and it's worked out well. The shipping costs do eat into the savings though.

One more item, I think it would be great if we pinned our locations to the mustache map. It could turn out that some of us live relatively close together. :)

Spedley - Excellent, thanks for pointing out the second page tab at the bottom of the map. Too bad it doesn't allow all icons to be displayed on one page. Maybe the next round of google maps will allow it.

btw - I go for a night bike ride with a group on Thursday evenings at 7:30. We leave from performance bikes in the park road shopping plaza right near you. We usually ride for about an hour and a half, casual pace of about 11 mph, it's a social ride. You should join us if you're into biking.
