How about Saturday 1/14/2017? Let's go hiking or go to a park, if weather permits. If weather doesn't cooperate, then we can do something indoors?

I'm willing to meet up on January 14, 2017. I don't know any other mustachians yet, so I'd like to begin making connections soon so I can meet others who are likeminded.

I can also do the 14th. I've never done a Mustachian meetup before, but I'm a longtime reader of the blog/forum lurker and want to start getting to know people in this community.

Any chance we could move this to the 21st? I just realized this morning that I'm having two wisdom teeth pulled on the 11th so I don't know how I will feel by the 14th. If not, I'll still try to make it.

I'm fine with meeting up either day. I'm just excited to meet other people with a similar mindset.   :)

Hi all--I'd love to meet you all but am busy pretty much for the rest of January, so maybe we could also set something up in February?

It's supposed to snow this Saturday, so I will not be able to make it to the meeting. I would be interested in meeting later in the month or in February as Miserly suggested.

So is there going to be a meetup tomorrow or not? I'd love to meet some local Mustachians, and a little snow won't get in my way.

FITortoise - yes
Jg922 - yes
BC_Goldman - maybe (wisdom teeth)
just_a_little - yes
MiserlyMiser - no
BrightFIRE - yes
neo von retorch - no

Looks like 4-5 people in the YES camp, so unless that has changed, the group of you could definitely meet!

Wisdom teeth went ok so I'm up for it tomorrow. Somewhere like a park would preferable to going into Philly.

Hey everybody. My plans have changed and I can meet up. If nobody has any suggestions, I thought we could meet at Green Line Cafe at 4426 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA 19104. I'm thinking we could meet anytime after 3pm. Please let me know if you're interested and if you're going so I don't go there for no reason!

Hi everybody! I hear the weather is going to be great on Saturday. Would anybody be interested in meeting up? I'm fine with different activities, including going for a bike ride (in case a suggestion is needed.) I hope to finally meet some other people that read this blog!

I'm scheduled to be out of state on Saturday for family stuff. Would next Saturday be an option for people? I, for one, would like to do something outside the city.

Hey everybody,

I plan to go for a bike ride around the art museum this Saturday around 1pm. If anybody is interested in coming along, let me know. If you're not free, thats fine too, just reply to a meet up you can attend or set one up that works with your schedule. Fyi, if you plan to come, I plan on wearing shorts and a t-shirt (in case you were wondering if I was one of those serious bikers with tights.) I hope to hear from someone soon so I can finally meet other people who read this blog!

Hi there - we live not too far outside Philly suburbs. Anyone up for a Valley Forge picnic potluck? Or maybe something else? 

As others mentioned, is there a FB group or something?

Thanks!

I like the idea of a Valley Forge meet up. Not a huge fan of the city myself.

Looks like my calendar is open although I have a niggling feeling I'm forgetting something. Saturday would be preferable for me.

Last-minute notice but myself and three others are meeting in Rittenhouse Square Park today, July 16, around 11:30-11:45 if anyone wants to join us. It'll be three women, one man, (possibly more if others join us) and we'll be having a picnic lunch. If you're in the area, feel free to stop by and say hello!

20/21 might work, or an evening the next couple days. I believe I'm out of state later that week.

I haven't made it to any yet, but I'm tentatively in.

So weird as I was just checking this thread earlier today!

Never made a meet-up before, but I'm also tentatively in.   

I don't have a car, so I have a strong preference for something within the city or at least walking distance from public transit.

I'll be coming in from outside of the city, so near affordable/free parking would be nice.

A couple of years ago we met in Rittenhouse Square. There is a parking garage at 15th and Vine. (A brisk walk, but Mustachians are always up for that!) They recently raised their rates to $7 for weekends.

I was thinking that one of the free outdoor movies they show in the parks in the summer would make another fun meetup if people are willing to do evenings. We could do BYO snacks.  (I'm hoping they'll have Black Panther and Star Wars this summer)  but it will be May or June before that's an option.

Thanks for putting this together!!! 

Thursdays are always going to be hard for me, since I work kind of late and it's a bit of a hike.  I could do a Friday, with the exception of August 3, 10, & 17 (will be travelling). 

Maybe try for July 20, for Star Wars?

I don't think we're usually very organized, but we should try to plan something. Anyone interested in potluck dinner picnic followed by The Fifth Element on June 28th? 

Maybe try for July 20, for Star Wars? 

I'd be up for that! If we decide on that, I'd suggest bringing chairs or something to sit on for Dilworth Park. I doubt they'll provide them and sitting on the ground on concrete doesn't sound too comfortable to me.
