Fremont Brewery is nearby too in case of less favorable weather. It's kid friendly so all could join.

The co-founder is a grad school friend of mine.  Maybe I can negotiate a MMM discount?

Wow. Tell them the Universal Pale is, like, the best beer on the planet.

We are looking at about an 8 hour drive so wouldn't be getting in until later afternoon but would love to meet up! Especially if activities are being extended into the dinner hour.

Knowing nothing about Seattle, I like the idea of meeting at the park or brewery! Are there any Seattle MMM'rs who would be willing to let my husband and I couch surf? The beer would be on us :)

FYI: the big hill at Gas Works Park is closed until June. The park also has relatively few picnic tables. It does have a nice central location near my workplace, so that's nice.

Golden Gardens and Carkeek parks are a bit less central, but have lots of picnic space and west-facing beaches that can be nice places to watch the sun set.

The Roth IRA was named after William Roth, who represented Delaware in the US senate from 1971-2001. "Roth" is a name, not an acronym. There's no need to capitalize the final three letters.

You guys are killing me, here -- I can WALK to both of these parks from my brother's house....

I am planning to tell my boss today that I need my new job description AND an overview of compensation by next week.  We just got the notice from our kids school asking whether or not we will be continuing next year, so that is how I am going to frame it.  If the answer is unsatisfactory I may just shorten my notice.  And then maybe I can pop back early.  We'll see....

Yes, the west half of Gasworks park is closed until about a week after the proposed meetup. I think it is still worth considering as it is a central location that is logistically pretty easy to congregate at and still offers nice views, etc. Locations like Carkeek (beautiful and great) have limited parking and are pretty out of the way for many arriving by bike. It's on my way home from work, so not a big deal for me, but may be inconvenient for others. Woodland Park has a number of picnic areas with gazebos. Woodland park doesn't have the epic views of the waterfront parks, but is still pretty nice, centrally located, and bike friendly.

A couple other ideas:
You could bike across I-90 and do one of the parks on Mercer Island (Luther Burbank or the lid on the west side)
Do the Ballard Locks have a picnic area?  It's fun to watch the lock and mare there salmon at that time of year?

I want to second Gasworks (despite the hill closure, it'll still have lake and skyline views, right?) but more importantly the idea that we keep the location easy to access. The previous "meet MMM" meetup in Seattle was pretty far north at a bike-unfriendly location*. We should hold this one in a central location that's easy for people to attend by any mode of transportation.

We could do a ride on the Burke-Gilman that includes Gasworks for a potluck/picnic, and/or ride over to the Fremont Brewery (either after the picnic or instead of the picnic as a rain-plan). That way non-cyclists could join up with the group at either/both locations. I understand not everyone rides a bike. The ride could continue to the Locks for out-of-towners to see it, etc.

* Lake City Way, prior to the 125th St road-diet. MMM even advertised free beer to anyone who rode there but only about 3 people took him up on it.

What about Seward Park? Its large, nice, and can be accessed from I-90 and I-5 for people driving and is walking distance or a short bus/bike ride from the Light Rail.

I might also be biased because its my favorite park in Seattle :)

Seward Park would be great on a day when Lake Washington Blvd is closed to cars, but otherwise Lake Wa Blvd is kinda crappy to bike on in my opinion.

I love Golden Gardens, and it would be a great way to show MMM the Ballard Greenway (on NW 58th) that we worked hard to get the city to implement.

But I still like Gasworks the best, with its proximity to the Burke and Fremont Brewing.  There's an area there with BBQ grills and picnic tables that I've been to before for a birthday party: http://www.seattle.gov/parks/Reservations/picnics/GasWorks2.pdf

I stopped by Gas Works this evening. There's still a little area where you can get up to the water and see the downtown skyline across the lake, and lots of open space away from the hill. It's not quite the full Gas Works experience, but still should be perfectly suitable for a meetup.

+1 Gasworks.  Post the final decision, and I'll be there.  Veggie burgers and portable gas grill available.

Is anyone still looking for a ticket to camp mustache? I was really looking forward to the weekend and all the events around it, but have had other obligations come up and I won't be able to attend. PM if interested, slight discount over the initial sticker price.

Hi all.  I'm one of the Camp Mustache organizers, and MMM is interested in having a Seattle Meetup on the evening of Thursday May 21st (the night before Camp Mustache).  I'll be pretty busy then, but we were wondering if anyone else here would like to organize a meet up for that day. This is what he had in mind:

"I was thinking of showing up a day early  to do some fun some stuff in Seattle first, and maybe even hosting a general-purpose meetup in a nice park somewhere central (weather permitting, otherwise it could be a house or pub). Then the next day I could carpool up to Camp with anybody willing. Our Seattle day could even start with a group bike ride that anyone would be free to join".

Feel free to post here if you have any ideas.

Park map for reference: http://www.seattle.gov/parks/_images/maps/picnics/GasWorks.pdf

It sounds like the general consensus has landed on Gasworks park. I am organizing another event the following week, so I don't have the capacity to take on being any kind of "real" organizer for this, but to get things moving towards specifics, suggest:

-- Bike ride: those who want to do the bike ride meet up at the the east end of the stone sculpture at the park at 4pm to start riding by 4:15. The default would be for the ride to do an out/back along the Burke, but will likely evolve/change based on who shows up. (side note: does MMM need wheels for this, or is he set?)

-- Potluck: begin at 6pm at Shelter 1 or 2 with the expectation that people will trickle in over the next hour as they get off of work (for those of us that have jobs, that is). Please bring something to share, that is grass-seating friendly. It will be dinner-time-ish, so hearty snacks would be a good option. If you have something specific that you are planning on bringing, please post in the thread below.

The picnic area shelters at Gasworks can be reserved for between $70 and $190, which would provide some certainty as to places to put communal stuff to share. However, I suggest that we forgo the reservation and just bring blankets and folding chairs and camp out on the grass if the shelters are not available first-come first-served basis. If someone else wants to volunteer to handle a reservation, I'd be happy to pitch in a few bucks to help cover the expense.

 Please comment if you have thoughts one way or another on that, or anything else above-- these are just suggestions to get things nailed down.

note: Edited for schedule, and additional potluck details.

Glenn, thanks for getting the ball rolling! I'm also planning an event for the following day...Camp Mustache ;)

I agree that we don't need the shelter and can rely on fair weather, and our own badassity as a rain plan.

I'm not gonna be able to make it so I don't really have a dog in this race, but I think the entire thing should be shifted about an hour later (ride at 4, dinner at 6). I'll let the people who are attending decide.

That would work better for me, at least. I wouldn't be able to get there until 6 anyway.

6:00 gives us a little wiggle room for the drive down. Can't help much with the organizing since we are totally unfamiliar with the area, but happy to do what we can :)

All right! I just heard about this meeting plan, so thank you everyone for figuring out the meeting spot!

I'll be there, and staying at a nearby hotel called the Staybridge Suites with a couple of friends who are also attending THE CAMP, so I think everything is set up. I'll just announce it on the blog or at least Twitter about a week before the actual event.

!!Super Excited To See Everyone!!

Neat.. I got lucky & heard about this meetup elsewhere.. maybe we need some type of mailing list or something.

Anyway, I'll check with my wife & a few local friends to see if we can show up at 6ish :)

Did anyone actually get the reservations yet?

I don't think we are going to reserve a shelter, but will meet in that area, as described in the post higher up in the thread. Now that you have responded to this thread, any time there is a new post, it will show up in your "Show new replies to your posts" list.

Hey everyone, is this the final plan ? Ride at 4PM, potluck starts at 6PM ?
No one else mentioned potluck so I'm wondering if we're just going to have a chat in the park (as opposed to carrying food, plates, etc. etc.).

I was planning on bringing chips and tuna salad dip (doesn't require additional plates or utensils), but if no one else is signed up for the potluck it may as well just be a chat.

I'm thinking snacks and finger foods might be best, I was planning on bringing something to share, not sure if it will be something homemade that can travel down with us or something we pick up along the way. Even just using it as an excuse to meet everyone..."Hi I'm Swick, want to try some...?"

I edited the details post above to say for people to say what they would plan on bringing, but the default would be something in the "hearty snack" realm. I am coming from work via bike, so will probably bring some sort of chip and dip type affair to share that travels well in tupperware (just realized that is quite the rhyme stream, unintended).

EVENT DETAILS: (Taken from Glenstach's post for easy reading)

-- Bike ride: those who want to do the bike ride meet up at the the east end of the stone sculpture at the park at 4pm to start riding by 4:15. The default would be for the ride to do an out/back along the Burke, but will likely evolve/change based on who shows up.

If you have something specific that you are planning on bringing, please post in the thread below.

Edited to add: I've made some gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free (are you still reading?!?) Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Bites to share. They are actually surprisingly tasty given how "free" from everything they are :)

I just landed a job in Seattle and will be moving up here mid-June.  I definitely plan to make it to any meetups that pop up!

Hi All - is there an official Seattle MMM meet-up group? I would love to join if there is one.  I am contemplating making the move to semi ER and would like to meet others with the MMM mind set.  Thanks!!!!!!

As far as I know there's no organized group here in Seattle.  We've had a few gatherings organized using this thread.  If someone were to make a group, I would suggest making a Facebook Page

Sorry I missed you guys at Gasworks last Thursday - I had a 7pm Sound Wave rehearsal, and was attending Camp Mustache II the next day.  BUT... now I'm regretting not meeting the other Seattle Mustachian's who weren't able to make CMII.  I'm in the eastside (Bellevue Factoria/Willburton area), and am very interested in future meetups.

I'll be back in late June and can try to organize some meetups over the summer.  I have family in East King County and am out there regularly, so could do an eastside one, too, at some point.  Maybe at Lake Sammamish State Park, or Marymoor?

Really sad to have missed Camp Mustache this round, but hope to come next year!  Might be able to help put that together, too, if there is a plan for a round III.

Whoo hoo!!!  Looking forward to it. Let me know if assistance is needed in planning/implementation.  Good use of some of my semi-FIREd free time :)

We're in North-central Washington but make it to Seattle for a weekend every few months. Is there a Seattle MMM facebook group?
