We are in South Philly and would love to meet some other Mustachians!  Want to get together for a potluck and hang out for a bit?

Jeannie!

I'm also in south philly and would be up for meeting up.  I'm happy to show up somewhere with a six pack of beer?

I just moved to Bryn Mawr, PA so I'd only be a short train ride away. I'd definitely be interested!

I too would be up for meeting up.  We should plan a happy hour during the week in Philly or something.  Some place with some drink/food specials.  What do people think? 

We could meet at Tir Na Nog in Philly, The Abbaye in Northern Liberties, or Moriartys.  Just some ideas.  Anyone want to throw out a place and time?

I'm very new to the area (less than a week) so I can't offer much insight :/

How about Sunday August 3rd at 7:30p at Sidecar Bar & Grille?  http://www.thesidecarbar.com/  On Sundays they have $5 pork nachos, pulled pork, and whatever else pork on the menu.  Can do a post-dinner snack/beer.  Nice sidewalk seating or an inside bar too.

Ugh, just seeing this too late. I'm new to MMM though I've always been a natural saver and have been looking towards ER for a couple of years now, hope to FIRE in 3-5. I live and work in Center City but do own a clown car if I need to get out. If you guys had a good time and want to do something again, I'm in!

Harv and I met up for a drink and some nachos, I think we were the only ones who made it out that night. If anyone wants to plan another meet-up, I'd be glad to come out!

Mike007 and I are making plans to meetup on Thursday after work at Tir Na Nog at 16th & JFK/Arch probably be there between 5-7 PM. (If I recall correctly they do have cheap happy hour drinks <$5) Anyone else able to join on short notice? If folks want to join but another location or day would be better, let us know and we can shift location/date. Would love to meet others!

We're out in the suburbs (NW of the city in Montgomery County) but would love to meet up.  Thursday is bad for us this week...but I'll click notify on this thread so I can keep tabs on future plans.

A while back some of us talked about doing a pot luck picnic in Valley Forge Park.  Never happened...but was a nice thought.

Mike007 and I are on for tomorrow at 5:00, Tir Na Nog at 16th & Arch. Not sure how long we'll hang out but please join us if you can, I have long brown hair and I'll be wearing easy to spot red jeans.

I love to hike and a potluck in Valley Forge sounds great. Maybe a weekend day in September?

Had a great time meeting up yesterday at Tir Na Nog for happy hour.  It was great to share some thoughts with another in the mmm community.  Anyone interested in another Philadelphia meet up should send out a message.

I would love to do another meetup!  (Just saw this thread, so unfortunately wasn't able to attend the last couple events).  I'm in fitler sq/rittenhouse.

Anyone up for something with short notice?  Just throwing out this suggestion: The Bards (20th and Walnut) at 7pm on Thursday the 21st?  $3 yuengling, $4 craft drafts, $5 house wine and cocktails.  I haven't been before but it's super close to where I live.  Of course, this is very last-minute but I'm feeling very excited about the possibility of meeting some other Mustachians, so if anyone else is interested, let me know, and I will be there!

Hmm, sounds like there's (potentially) only one taker for this Thursday?  So let's nix the plan.

Harv, your rooftop deck sounds fantastic!  I have a bunch of leftover booze from my wedding, I'd be happy to bring some of it :)

So this thread seems to have died down - I'd love to meet some fellow Mustachians :)

I suggest planning something for September - I'd be down for a cheap happy hour, perhaps a picnic by the dog park?  I'm quite flexible, anyone have any ideas for what they want to do?

I was wondering if anyone was going to rescue the thread before we hit page 2.... I'm actually almost totally free Friday night and all day Saturday if we come up with something today. Rare for my grad school schedule. And it would have to be on a grad school budget :) but I don't think that's an issue around here.

Hey,

Sorry I missed the August meet-up. I didn't sign in for a little bit. Anyway, it seems that there is some possible interest for an October meet-up?

Hi guys,

I've been reading Mr Money Mustache for the last few months but I'm new to the forum. I live in Manayunk and work in Center City- I'd definitely be down for a meetup in October!

Guys!

Seems like there's a good number of us who are interested in a meetup, but since nobody has made specific plans of late, nothing's happened.

How about happy hour/drinks on Thursday, October 30 at 1518 Bar & Grill from 5-7? (http://philly.thedrinknation.com/bars/profile/447-1518-Bar-and-Grill)  I've never been, but they have decent specials ($3 yuengling, $5 house wine, $5 apps).  While there are definitely more exciting meetups to be done, how about we try this to get the ball rolling!

Anyone else in? :)

Seriously!  I keep checking back to this thread, because I have no intention of drinking at a bar by myself.  I guess it's pretty short notice, but it makes me sad that nobody is interested/free, because I'm so excited to meet some Mustachians in person & there seem to be a bunch ... vaguely posting about being interested in meeting up.  Oh well :)

Yeah, I hear ya, I really want to meet up too. Still haven't met a Mustachian in the wild. I wish my schedule wasn't so random most of the time so I could actually commit more than 24 hours in advance :(

Alright, folks.  So many people have commented on this thread, anything legitimately want to meet up? (Or does everyone want to keep their interactions to the internet?)

DH and I would be in...would love to meet other MMMers.   We have active kids though...so weeknights in the city won't work for us (afterschool activities, etc.).

We're in the NW suburbs (Montgomery county) but would be willing to come to the city if that's where the majority are.

Hey phillystash! My sister and I would love to come, we live in Lancaster so we'll probably take the train in for the day. I haven't formally RSVP'd on that site yet but I just wanted to let you know that two more will be coming!

So how was the April 12th Meetup?

It was great! Definitely worth the train ride to meet some like-minded Mustachians in person. (There were 5 of us altogether.) I'd be willing to come back for another meetup, depending on when/where it is. Someone mentioned a Valley Forge potluck picnic earlier in the thread, I'd be up for something like that too.

I've been following the blog for a year or two now but just joined the forum. I'm glad to see there are at least a few other Mustachians in the Philly area! Valley Forge was mentioned, and while it's nice, it's not very central. I'm in South Kensington/Northern Liberties/Fishtown area, and it seems others are in or near Center City. Why not meet up on a Sunday in Rittenhouse Square or even a cafe somewhere? I see the last meetup was at one on Pine. In true Mustachian fashion, I'd rather not drive.

Thoughts?
