I updated the list with the dates for the Schuylkill Banks movies.

I may be in Philadelphia the last week of June/ first week of July. Posting here to see if anything is going on during that time
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.

I will be in town on June 28. Count me in!

It would be nice to meet some other mustachians in the area. I feel kind of lonely over here in NJ sometimes.

Let's aim for the 28th then!  I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

So are we on for the 28th?

I am visiting a relative in Philadelphia so will double check with them when I arrive soon to make sure we are free that evening. I think it is pretty likely.

I'm available, but could also reschedule if that's better for people.
If people still want to do the movie thing, Spiderman Homecoming is at Schmidt Commons (https://www.facebook.com/events/903647289817602/) and The Fifth Element is are Gray's Ferry Crescent (https://www.schuylkillbanks.org/events/movie-nights/fifth-element) For people not familiar with the city, location wise, Schmidt Commons is in No Libs, I'm not familiar with the place itself, but it's in a good area and convenient to transit/restaurants/bars. The Gray's Ferry Crescent is a nice little park, I've been there a couple of times, but the area around it is a little rougher.  I'd be comfortable taking a bus and walking to the park during the day, but I'm not sure I'd be comfortable waiting for the bus back at night. Normally I would consider that an Uber situation, although there will be a bunch of people leaving after the movie so it'll probably be fine.  Or we could always meetup at a bar or something if people aren't interested in the movie thing.

How about this event instead for June 28th?

http://www.parksontap.com/parks/columbussquare

Free yoga from 6-7pm with a free drink.

Might be a better venue and more chances to chat than watching a movie.

Aww man! I've been thinking this whole time that we were meeting on Saturday. I just now realized that the 28th is tomorrow (Thursday) and I already have Thursday nights booked. Now I'm really bummed... Yoga in the park sounded like fun.

I am in town on Saturday as well. My relative is out of town that day so I am on my own that day. There is a ton of stuff to do in Philly and I plan to hit some of the spots mentioned in this 4th of July guide for Saturday:

I am still up for meeting Thursday night as well.

I haven't done yoga in a while, but I'd be up for it. It'd be good for me! Saturday is also a possibility. I was considering doing yard work, but it's gonna be hotter than hades.

OK, it seems like it is you and me for yoga and free beer at Columbus Square on Thursday, and possibly another meetup with BC_Goldman as well on Saturday.

This is what I am interested in on Saturday:
First Bank of the United States, free 9am-5pm
On The Delaware Music Festival 10am-8pm, free
Philadelphia History Museum, free 10:30am-4:30pm
Philly Ice Cream Scoop @ Reading Terminal Market 11am-5pm
U.S Army Band music and fireworks show @ Penn's Landing, 8pm show, 9:30pm fireworks

Probably the best meetup place for Saturday is the US Army Band music and fireworks show. I'll probably be running around the city during the day hitting all of the other free stuff without a set schedule.

Great meetup on Saturday! It was nice to meet you both.

It seems like a requirement for Philadelphia meetups is for at least one person to spill their beer.

Crap. Missed all of this.

PTF for next thing. Sundays/Mondays would be amazing.

Yep!  I had a good time. I was just about to suggest you and I form a beer spilling club! The rules are you have to spill your first beer of the evening.  To keep it mustachian though, we'll have to switch to byo or homebrews.

Yes BYOB would have been a smarter option. I guess if I wasn't walking around in the heat all day it would have been a more frugal way to drink. I can't believe how hot Philly is!
