Don't be too quick to judge! Many people here might use Starbucks as their one cheat or they just happen to get a lot of gift cards!

Don’t worry… I wouldn’t have much to stand on if I judged Starbucks drinkers.  It’s one of my cheats, too!  :P 

I just anticipated virtual face-punches if I actually suggested it to a group of Mustachians...  :)


The one without a long line ;)! Not around for an OC meet up myself but you guys might want to check out HB Central Park. Good easy walking with dogs allowed (except in the nature center) and a couple of outdoor restaurants for coffee. Also an In and Out down the street a mile.

I agree with spartana!  Shortest line!!   :P

Seriously, though, the HB Central Park is awesome, and that In-N-Out nearby would be a great spot to meet.  It’s hard to miss!  We could meet up for burgers, and then maybe go for a walk around the park later.

Actually, the HB Central Library is connected to the park, and there's an awesome water-fountain/study area where we could meet and chat, no purchases required!!  The water sounds are at the perfect level where you can hear your party talking, but you don't disturb or overhear the people around you.  They're open on Saturdays until 5, and we could sit inside or walk through the park as desired:

http://www.yelp.com/biz/huntington-beach-central-library-huntington-beach

From what I saw earlier in the thread, though, it seems like a lot of people are from Irvine… would either of these places be a convenient location for the people who are interested in this meeting?

And what dates are looking good for people?  The next two Saturdays (Feb 6th/13th) are out for me, unfortunately, but we probably need more planning time anyway.  Maybe the 20th?  27th?
Potentially down! I've had fun meeting mustachians in person so far, but the mustachian in me notices that there are like 15 In  N Outs in between there and here. lol

Doesn't HB have fire pits? Could do bonfire / s'mores. :)

Sounds good to me. I can't do hikes so as long as it doesn't conflict with anything I can't change, count me in.

Yeah... this is why I was asking if these were convenient locations for everyone involved.  I don't mind driving a bit to meet other mustachians, and it makes sense to find a place that's closest to the largest number of people attending.

I also have a few ice-breaker type board/card games (Exploding Kittens, anyone?), that could be fun to play as a group, if we're somewhere with a table to work with (library/In-N-Out/whatever).

Sounds good... Don't know if I'd make it out but fyi the 91 is closed the weekend of Feb 19-21

Good to know!  So maybe Feb 27th or March 5th?

I might be a bit concerned about getting too loud in a library.  I'm good with driving to HB. I don't mind driving a bit, I've driven a lot further than HB to meet mustachians. Plus, If I'm driving to experience Exploding Kittens rather than to eat an In N Out burger, it's suddenly become a lot more exciting. :)

It probably depends on the In N Out though, some of those places are jam packed and they probably need the tables available for turnover.


On the 19th-21st, the 91 is only closed between the 71 and the 15 in Corona. There should be some delays, but I can't imagine it would be that bad on the coastal side of things. I'll be staying in OC that weekend to escape the traffic madness.

No fire pits but barbeques. The west side of the park  (between Goldenwest and Edwards) has some near the dog park and some near the lake and restaurant and scattered about between nature center, frisbee  golf course, and horse stables and trails.. Most might be taken weekends though but doesn't get too crowded. I'm not sure about the east/library side (Goldenwest and Gothard) tough but probably some as its the bigger side. The In and Out is on Talbert and Beach Blvd.

FYI, According to this link, HB does have fire pits at:

Huntington City Beach
Huntington State Beach
Bolsa Chica State Beach

Yeah all the Beach's have tons of fire pits so you could have a big bonfire there but the park only has barbeques. It's also free parking at the park but $15/vehicle at the state Beaches unless you have a state park pass. Newport and Balboa also gave fire pits but not as many as Huntington and they also have paid parking. If you guys are looking for an easy walking cheap meet up HB state or city beach, Central Park, or Bolsa Chica Wetlands are all good.  Just byo food. Irvine and other more central areas probablt have similair parks. If you want a long hike probably Whiting Ranch or similar.

The person who wanted In N Out specifically wanted less physical activity than a hike, so I was just trying to throw something out there that is both fun and sedentary. :)

I mean, yeah,it totally costs to park, and to buy firewood, and ingredients to cook/ s'mores...but i'm still down with the exploding kittens idea if someone has an idea for a meeting spot...if the in n out is conducive for that environment, then I'm for it....

I can do the 5th and the 13th.  Perhaps one can be outdoors and the other indoors to accommodate people's varying fitness levels?  Whiting Ranch one weekend and In-&-Out in HB on the other?

Good idea! If it works out for everyone else,  I'd prefer to do Whiting Ranch on the 13th since that is close to where I am staying.

Thanks SeaEhm!  Alright - Sunday, March 13th at Whiting Ranch (meet at the nice shaded grass area at the entrance to the park). 

What time works for everyone?  If El Nino decides to grace us with its presence, we can meet at the Foothill Ranch In-&-Out for lunch instead (11:30am before the rush?) as a backup plan.  Let's get a count of how many can make it below...?

Is anyone up for meeting early in the morning for a hike or whatever at Whiting?  Just found out my cousin's wife is throwing him a surprise birthday luncheon on the 13th so I've got a family obligation at 12:30pm now.  I swear...best laid plans, LOL!

Possibly but early is a relative term, what time are you thinking? Would it need to be earlier than 10 am? What time would you need to leave?
We could meet somewhere other than Whiting if that works better for you

Almosthw - thanks for the reply!  Early for me would be 8am but perhaps MMM readers aren't early birds.  No worries, I'll catch up with you folks at the next meetup:-)

I could do an 8 am hike on Saturdays or Sundays depending on where it is/how long of a drive it is for me.  Just tell me when and where. I did a bit of Skyline in Corona this morning, it was awesome, lots of friendly people mulling about - dirt bikers, dog walkers, runners pushing strollers, kids, retirees.......I barely found a parking spot!

Hi TJ,

  Here's the address I pulled off the OC Parks website - http://ocparks.com/parks/whiting/

Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park
Borrego Parking Lot
26701 Portola Parkway, Foothill Ranch, CA 92610

Is everyone okay for an 8am hike then next Sunday, 3/13?  *Crosses fingers that it doesn't rain!*

According to the Whiting Ranch website (http://ocparks.com/parks/whiting/), the trails may be closed for up to three days following rain.  I see that it's supposed to rain on Friday night but hopefully, it won't be too heavy.  See you all at 8am on the 13th!  If the trails happen to be closed, we can grab a coffee somewhere close by.  How will we all recognize one another?  This is the first MMM meetup I'll be attending so I don't know how you all normally do it.

- I'm up for another outing that doesn't involve physical activity.  Sitting around chatting about finances and other interesting topics sounds dandy as well.  Where would you and/or "exploding kittens" fans like meet up one weekend this month or next?

It's raining pretty good, just have to see how that goes this weekend. If I wake up on time, I'll head out there to hang out.

As far as recognizing people, you could send PM's or you could trade phone numbers if no web access on your phone.

I'm still want to meet! Should we forgo hiking due to rain and instead meet at a breakfast type place? Would surfin' donuts in Mission Viejo work  (Trabuco Rd)?   8 am?  I am open to whatever the group wants to do just throwing it out there...

I definitely still want to meet up as well so I'll go ahead and call it:-).  Since it rained pretty heavily today, Whiting Ranch is probably going to be closed. 

I like Almosthw's idea.  Let's meet at 8am at Surfin' Doughnuts (that's the place I Yelped for coffee if we couldn't hike so it must be a sign):

26861 Trabuco Rd.
Mission Viejo, CA 92691

I'll be wearing my Notre Dame Fighting Irish sweatshirt in honor of St. Patty's Day so you can spot me.  See you all there!

Don't know what I'll be wearing but my friend will be wearing a service dog vest.

It was lovely meeting you all and thank you very much for the money and life tips!  In my consumer-ish group of friends, I'm the one who's always giving financial advice.  How refreshing to actually be on the receiving end for once! 

Plus, I loved how inadequate (don't worry, it's a good thing!) I felt yesterday morning.  Since I was the only one of the group that didn't own their home outright, it re-inspired me to pay that sucker down and get out of the rat race ASAP.

How about a hike or picnic in May that doesn't involve spending money so we stick to our MMM roots?  Humans, little humans and furry friends welcome...

Hi All

My hubby and I are located in Long Beach and wanted to invite the OC and South Bay mustachians out to Seal beach to meet at the southern edge of Electric Ave Median Park. There is an arbor and some benches.

Would April 23rd or April 30th work better? Bring your own brunch. =)

I'll cross post in the LA board in case some South Bay mustachians are lurking there.

Either day works for me. And the location is perfect. About 3 miles from home.

I will be in the area April 23 but wouldn't be available until the afternoon (since I will bargain shopping at the Ladera Ranch yard sales, mentioning in case anyone else is interested). Since you mentioned brunch, what time were you thinking?

Feel free to meet up w/o me if that works better for everyone else; I wouldn't be available and up in that area until probably around 1p.m. I wish I was though; cinnamon rolls sound great!   
To my knowledge, the Ladera Ranch yard sale happens only once per year, always at the end of April. I've gotten many great deals over the years - small furniture items, home decor, golf clubs, books, and clothes. There is a TON of kids stuff. Just like any yard sale, some folks practically give the stuff away while others overcharge.  ..the golf clubs I bought for $20. After I got home, I cleaned out the pockets and there was a $20 bill, a barely used glove, and many balls inside...score!

I plan to go. I'm just off the 405 in Seal Beach. You could swing by and pick me up. But they are beginning to predict rain. I know they're usually wrong, but maybe this time... Meeting on the beach in the rain might be interesting.
