Anyone in Atlanta?
« on: October 25, 2012, 08:06:06 PM »
I wanted to see if there are any other mustachians in Atlanta that would be interested in meeting up in the near future.  I am open to ideas.

Hi Ashem,

I am Dunwoody, so not very far away.

Ashem,

Sounds good. Wasn't able to make it out to the concert but will let you guys know if any other appealing free activities are in the ATL area that we can possibly meet up at.

Hey guys! I'm also in Atlanta, in the Morningside/Lenox Park area. I would additionally be interested in just meeting up at a coffee shop or something to discuss various strategies for saving towards early retirement and share how we are progressing.

Got an e-mail last night that they're short on volunteers, so sign-up here:

Sorry, Ray, I didn't read this message until now.

I'd be up for a meet-up now that the holidays are over.

Hi everyone!  Would you guys like to do a meetup after the holidays in January to discuss personal finances/FI?  I live in downtown Atlanta.  We could meet at a coffee shop.

Your Meetup is closed - just taking request on MMM forums or are you happy with the size?

It doesn't look like an Atlanta meetup has happened yet, but I would love to attend one!  Is anyone up for scheduling a get together?  I am in the midtown/Virginia Highland area.

Why don't we have a meet up since there are are a decent number of people on the North side of town - Alpharetta? or any other suggestions?

I'd be up for a meetup on the north side.  Or even a weekday lunchtime meetup with some folks in Midtown.  :-)

Weekday lunchtime meetup in Midtown sounds good to me, but of course, I'm biased because I'm in Midtown =P

To move things along, I'll just suggest a time, and if we don't have enough people who can make it, we can choose a new one.

How about next Monday at noon?

It should work for me - unless something comes - I need sufficient drive time from Norcross; any proposed spot!

Ok, I have some suggestions for our location.

Here is a pizza place that is directly across from the (Arts Center?) Marta station.  They usually have reasonably priced lunch specials and would be convenient for anyone who decided to Marta up/down.  They also have some nice outdoor seating.

www.davincisatlanta.com

OR, we could all meet up at Colony Square.  There are tons of places to get food there and a central food court and you could also bring your own lunch if you were so inclined.

OR, there are some picnic tables at my office building (One Atlantic Center) and across the street (Regions building) and we could meet up there.  Everyone would have to bring their own lunches.

What do you think?  Or do anyone have any other suggestions?

I'd be good with any of those options. Though it looks like it'll rain on Monday, so the picnic tables might not be so great.

Let's plan something a week or 2 out, should be easier for people to make it then, right?

I'm cool with DaVinci's pizza or something that allows people to bring their own lunch as well.

Any Monday lunch meet-up would be awesome timing for me. I'd be coming from the Gwinnett area too, so maybe we can get a carpool together if we're meeting in Midtown? 

Pizza or bring your own is good with me.

Is there an actual date set?

I think we should exchange email addresses or something.

Someone want to be the leader and we can PM them to one person who can then email out something? It'd be nicer to share how to identify and contact each other and I don't know that I really want to share too much on the forum itself.

Where in Gwinnett in Red? I'd be cool with carpooling.

Looks like this thread has been dead for a while, but what the hell, worth a shot. I'm in Brookhaven/Chamblee if anyone wants to grab a beer.

Are you the one that emailed me this morning?

Anyways, it's really up to everyone if they want to post up and schedule a meet. I tried coordinating with everyone through email but of course everyone has different schedules so nothing panned out.

The main thing we basically learned is most of the users are midtown based and the rest of us are either in the 'burbs on the 75 or 85 side of things. Seemed like most of the people were okay with making a trip to midtown for a meet.

Yes it's tough...I'm in Duluth/Johns Creek; getting to midtown during the day is hellish to say the least. I'm good for anything north of I-285.

Some of them are not really free, like BBQ Fest is free, but it costs to get in on the all-you-can eat situation.

Other stuff really is free.   : )

Hello all, I'm organizing an Atlanta get together and likely already contacted you via a message. Anyways, posting out here as well.

Basic Details are:
-Date Feb 9 or 10 (2016) please RSVP your preference and most popular day will win
-I can host, I live at Studioplex http://tinyurl.com/zezaalq we have a fairly sizable community room steps from my condo if participation is really awesome.
-We can provide some snacks and drinks, feel free to bring some to share.
-Time I was thinking 7:30 probably works well for most people?

Just trying to meet others on their journey to financial independence or post FIRE, make some new likeminded friends and maybe learn a thing or two!

P.S. if these dates don't work for you or you see this on the forum years from now, feel free to send me a message!
