Ok, Wednesday 2/10/16 is the date, 7:30pm is the time. Don't worry if you'll be a little late.


I will have some snacks and drinks and snacks to share, feel free to bring some if you'd like.

Reiterating directions because everyone seems to struggle with this 1. go through gate next to Serpas 2. make immediate right and drive to end 3. make right and drive to end. My phone text or call if you're having trouble. Looking forward to meeting everyone

Do your directions change at all if I'm planning on biking there?

When is Studioplex going to be hooked up to the Beltline? I guess trying to cut through between the current dirt Beltline path and the parking lot would be a bad idea since there's currently a hill, bushes, and maybe a fence in the way...

Does Studioplex have decent bike parking?

I'm putting 2/10 on our calendar.  I'll be the "old" guy with gray in my beard.  DW is planning to be there too.

Thanks for putting this together.

Yeah, cutting through with the bike from the dirt part of the beltline isn't an option, but pretending you're a car will get you there in 3 minutes from the end of the "main" stretch of the beltline. (less than a minute to Serpas/studioplex entrance then about 2 min of going around the building as described in prior post)

I have a patio that could support 10 bikes if necessary (we're on ground floor). I can let you borrow a lock if you'd like, but we've never had a problem with theft of things off our patio nor have our neighbors. I'd bet big that @7:30 you'd have zero issues.

I hope this goes well! If it goes well, would anyone interested in a bi-weekly lunch meeting (probably downtown somewhere)? A place that is cool with people bringing their own lunch would be ideal.

Had a great time last night.  It was definitely fun to meet like-minded people.  A big shout out to the hosts!  Thanks for taking time to put this together and allowing us to hang out for the evening.

I think I've successfully included a picture of our kind hosts - cleverly disguised as you can see.

It was great to talk to other Mustachians in real life! I have only one two frugal minded friend, and one of them invests, but he's not sold on the FIRE thing. And I never actually see that guy in person anymore.

Thanks again for hosting. And hopefully we can get more people at the next one! I know some people here said they wanted to come but couldn't make it b/c of other obligations.

Hey RAHBY1US, got your message. I would love to join y'all but it's my husband birthday. Would love to meet up the next time.

Based on your username, you'd have loved the cupcakes that the hostess made!

Definitely a great experience to meet everyone!  And even without the awesome company - I'd come back just for the cupcakes - so thanks again to the hosts!

Not sure if anyone mentioned doing lunch sometime, but if there's anyone else that works in midtown/downtown, I could be up for meeting in woodruff/centennial/piedmont park once the weather gets nicer...

I would too! But I agree about the weather. I can't really think of an appropriate place to meet and eat our boxed lunches that isn't outside.

For our next get-together I'll bring chai latte bars to sit alongside the cupcakes.  They would get along nicely, I think.  :)

The food courts at Colony Square, Peachtree Center, or the AT&T tower would be an option.

Now that the weather is nice, is anyone interested in a picnic meet-up at Roswell Riverside Park? I though midday on a Saturday or Sunday would be nice.

That's pretty far for me. I'm about 5 miles from Midtown.

I'm sorry that I missed the Atlanta meet-up in early February.  I know "work" is the worst excuse, but such was the case.  I'm glad to see it looks like you all had a wonderful time!  I agree that an in-town lunch meet-up would be fun.  I'm a fan of the suggestion for the Colony Square food court.  But would you all shun me if I were to buy a $9 salad at Leaves & Loaves?  :-)

Hi! I live in Decatur, and I'd love to participate in future meet-ups! We are not very Mustachian, but we are strengthening our (weak, flabby) frugality muscles.

Alright I'm going to throw a suggestion out there for a lunch meetup. How about next Tuesday or Wednesday, 3/29 or 3/30, at noon at Colony square?

If we don't get enough positive responses we can try a different date, but it's easier to move these discussions forward if someone just suggests something.

I can't make it either date, but I'm glad that it's happening!

I'm also trying not to buy lunch out right now or drive extra... frugality!

 Maybe we could do a potluck dinner on a weekend night? In late April or May?

With respect to buying lunch, we picked the food court so people can bring their own :)

It sounds like lunch this Tuesday in the Colony Square food court would work for at least four of us.  Shall we meet there at noon?  And how will we recognize each other?
