I'm up for a meetup, it's been a while since our last one. I'm good with doing it in Raleigh since we met in Durham last time. RootOfGood, want to pick a time and place? I'll never object to a good brew. :)
RALEIGH/DURHAM/CARY/CHAPEL HILL MMM'ers:
I'll throw out a time and place and let's see if there is interest and availability. Picnic Lunch
Saturday, October 12 at 11:30 am
The Rose Garden in Raleigh
If you don't know where it is, it is just north of the NC State Campus and right behind the Raleigh Little Theater. Very central for those in Raleigh, and on the Chapel Hill/Durham side of Raleigh not far off the interstate for those that want to commute down.
Nice free park. Free parking all around, just read the signs. Bring your own picnic lunch and beverages (maybe skip the alcohol, it'll be 11:30 am and who gets drunk in the morning?). I'm up for potluck if it doesn't get too complicated. We'll probably bring a big bag of chips or something to share anyway. May have Mrs. RootofGood and kids in tow (ages 1, 7, and 8), if you wanted to bring significant others and/or kids.
Unless the theater happens to be open, there aren't any bathrooms in the park, but there's McD's, some other shopping, and 2 libraries about 1/4 mile away that are well known for decent bathrooms in addition to mediocre burgers and stacks of books (respectively).
No axe murderers allowed. Unless you are bringing really good sandwiches for all of us.
