Post by: savingtofreedom 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.

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:

Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?

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

Post by: wannBeeMillionaire on September 21, 2014, 07:19:41 PM
I'm OK with midtown - I work in Norcross; let's pick a date & time and make it happen! Tuesday's & Thursday's are not good for me ...
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: HairyUpperLip on September 22, 2014, 07:27:26 AM
I can probably do a midtown lunch as well.

Post by: johnny847 on September 24, 2014, 12:24:52 PM
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?
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: Frugalicious on September 24, 2014, 12:49:59 PM
Works for me.
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: wannBeeMillionaire on September 24, 2014, 01:28:24 PM
It should work for me - unless something comes - I need sufficient drive time from Norcross; any proposed spot!
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: Frugalicious on September 24, 2014, 03:45:52 PM
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?
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: johnny847 on September 27, 2014, 06:08:05 AM
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.
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: HairyUpperLip on September 29, 2014, 08:56:20 AM
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.
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: red7 on October 02, 2014, 12:08:49 AM
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?
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: HairyUpperLip on October 02, 2014, 07:48:17 AM
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.

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.

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 (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!
Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: johnny847 on January 20, 2016, 12:47:52 PM

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

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?

Title: Re: Anyone in Atlanta?
Post by: rahby1us on February 02, 2016, 12:43:07 PM
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.

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.

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 do Tuesday at Colony Square. (Wednesday isn't so good, because that's company-provided lunch day.)

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!

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?

I was going to print out a mustache and put it on the table =)

What part of the food court are we meeting in? There are a lot of tables on which to search for mustaches...

It was great to meet you two at lunch today!  I hope Atlanta Mustachians will continue to have meet-ups on a regular basis going forward!

Jack brought up a great idea for possibly meeting for a Mobile Social event.  The group does fun, social bike rides every second Friday of the month:  http://www.themobilesocial.com/whatwhenwho.html  Is that something others would be interested in trying?

I'd be up for meeting for Mobile socials in general. I can't make it this particular time though.

We can also try for a Piedmont park meetup after work on a weekday.

I shelled out 20 bucks to make this easier:

If you want to organize events regularly, let me know. I'll make you an organizer. One day I expect we can start having regular meetups in different areas of the state (Kennesaw, Roswell, Midtown, Decatur, etc)

Hi, fellow Atlanta Mustachians!  Don't forget to register for the meetup group that ModernIncantations graciously set up for us, and to RSVP for the event that is planned for Saturday, May 28, at 5 p.m., in Piedmont Park.  http://www.meetup.com/Metro-Atlanta-Mustachian-and-Lifestyle-Design-Meetup/

The potluck cookout meetup got bumped to the next Saturday, June 4th due to a festival happening at Piedmont. Some people are still hanging out this Saturday though at a nearby park

We can't be there at 5PM but may be able to make it around 7PM.  Not expecting an food at that point - just want to say hello.  What are the chances people will still be around at 7PM?

Hi all!
I'm new to Mustachianism and so excited to meet up with some like-minded people. There's been about a 4 month hiatus but hoping someone will get this :) I also joined the meet up. Beginning of the year is and exciting time to discuss goals.

The meetup group is closing down soon. It cost $20/month to maintain and we decided that's not really Mustachian when we have a  Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/995320217206223/) for free.

HI!!! I do!!

Just recently got on board in the forum, though I've been following MMM for several months now. DH and I are in Smyrna, but we work in Midtown. I'm joining the Facebook group and hope to see some of you around--go Atlanta Mustachians!

Hey @lv2glrfy can you possibly post an updated link? Would love to see if we can pull together a couple of other groups in the Atlanta/North Atlanta area that would benefit from a Mustache Meetup. I'm in Alpharetta myself.
