I've got a meeting from 5-6pm on Tuesday, but I could probably arrive a little later, around 7. Works for me, though. What's everyone else's schedule looking like?

Let's shoot for 7 on Tuesday, then! Shall we make a Meetup group, or otherwise how should we communicate the address to folks who want to join?

Do we want to meet at Callowhill office or somewhere else?

I need to check availability on Monday with the office manager.

The Callowhill office sounds like a great idea to me if it'll be available. What do you think, Miss Bigglesworth?

harshalpatel, Miss Bigglesworth, and myself met up last night! It was great fun! (and there was wine  thanks Miss Bigglesworth!)

We're going to plan another meetup a few weeks from now, in January sometime. We're still working out the details, but if you're interested in coming to a MMM meetup in the area, then you should keep an eye on this thread :)

PS- There's a "notify" button up top, in gray, if you want email updates when people comment on this thread.

Ugh, I'm too late again and I've checked the notify button, thanks Miss B. :)

Hopefully next time, really would love to meetup with other Philly Mustachians!

kasperle (and others), any idea when in January you'd like to meet up? (Or February, at this point?) :)

Hey Daymare and others! Sorry for the lack of replies. After the last meetup in December (which was great!), I planned to schedule another one for January or February. But shortly after the meetup, a job opportunity came up and I ended up getting it! Part of the job involves moving to California...so I won't be able to make any future Philly meetups, I'm afraid.

If anyone finds themself in the Bay Area, I'd love to meet up, though :)

My facial hair is practically non-existent, and soft as a baby's bottom, but I yearn to learn, and network with mustachian's!

Keep me posted on any organized meetups in the Philly area!

Hey,
I would love to meet other like-minded MMM's people in Philly as well.  Let me know if there is a meetup!

Excited to see this picking back up, I wanted to make a meetup last year but couldn't.

I'd love to organize something maybe in June.... I live/work in Center City and could potentially host small get together in my condo (just off Logan Square) or we could just meetup at Rittenhouse Square... unless outside the city is better for the majority.

Thoughts?

I'm definitely down for a meeting. My preference is outside the city since I detest driving and parking in center city. I'm partial to open areas. I'm subscribed to this thread now so I know when people post in it.

I'd be interested. Center City or somewhere close to SEPTA, like the Wissahickon, works best for me since I don't have a car.

Okay, I think we're stuck with Center City since there could be people from four different counties interested here, and that's probably the most convenient for everyone. In any case, I'll be taking the train in on Sunday 6/26 for dinner (parent's 40th anniversary.) and would be happy to catch an earlier one if people just want to hang out or whatever people do at these get togethers. I'll be close to City Hall and I don't mind walking as far as Rittenhouse Square. Let me know, thanks!

THe 26th probably won't work for me. I've already got plans that I expect will keep me busy until late afternoon.

I'd also be interested in meeting-up. I work in Center City so a weekday/weeknight would work best for me personally. Going to continue to follow this thread.

We did a meetup in Rittenhouse Square last summer. That worked pretty good, and it's a short walk from the train station for people who live in the suburbs.

My sister and I will definitely be there - she may have a backpack, I'll have an over-the-shoulder bag, we're in our 30's/40's. Maybe we'll go to the center of the park and just hang out? If you see us come up to us!

Dammit I haven't followed this thread closely and would have loved a chance to meet up in Rittenhouse Park whenever the next quorum manifests.

How'd it go? I'd be great to talk about Philadelphia issues, policy with an MMM lens.

Just came across this corner of the website, I would def be interested in meeting with some mustachians.  Not always easy to find people with that mentality in the big city.  Also, someone mentioned couchsurfing in this thread, as a "mustache"-friendly community.  It might be a good place to post/organize these meetups - free to use (unlike meetup.com) and attracts even more like-minded folk.  They have an events page for each location: https://www.couchsurfing.com/events

Fyi, the local CS crowd has an open event listed for next Saturday: https://www.couchsurfing.com/events/fall-bonfiyaaaah

I'm probably going to attend, if any mustachers want to meet up there, PM me.

Meetup scheduled for this Sunday, November 20, in Rittenhouse Square. We're going to meet around 11:30am at that pond/fountain thing in the center of the park. If you see a small group of people talking, come up to us! Hope to see you there!

Glad everyone was able to meet up again. I didn't get home until about 12:50 so I figured I probably missed it.

Would anyone be interested in meeting on the NJ side of the river next time? I would like to suggest the Jake's Place playground at the Challenge Grove Park in Cherry Hill (if any of you have kids). Sad story but the playground is designed for anyone to be able to use, even if you have a disability. Supposed to be ranked one of the top playgrounds.

Couldn't make Sept. and sorry to have missed again, I was on my annual trip to Moab (just posted in the Moab thread). I'd still love to meet Philly MMMers in Center City (easiest for me), on the Jersey side or anywhere in the region.
