Title: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: DOPOLI on September 19, 2014, 12:34:26 PM
Hi everyone- I'm fairly new to both Austin and this forum. Anyone interested in a meet-up?

From looking at the archives, it looks like about a year has past since the last Austin meet-up, so it might be a good time to connect people in Austin.

Let me know if/ when interested, and I'll set something up.

Thanks!

Post by: DOPOLI on October 14, 2014, 06:51:40 AM
Sorry for being out for a while! My wife is traveling for work quite a bit this month, so I need to take care of the kids in the evening. How does November sound for a meet-up?

Does Thurs. Nov. 6 work? Maybe we can do 7pm at Bennu coffee shop (2001 E MLK). Let me know if you're in or have other suggestions on time/place! Looks like there's only a few people, so I'm hoping everyone can come. Looking forward to it!

Cool!.
I think we could make it to Austin by 7pm :)

Let me know if anyone else can make it, or if an alternative time/place works better.

I have a work event the evening of November 6, but could do either November 4 or 5.

Thanks for organizing!

Wed, November 5th works for me. 7pm at Bennu still okay?

Please let me know if anyone else is up for it!! Looking forward to it.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up

We are up for meeting next week! See you at Bennu!

Sorry folks- I can't make it next Wed Nov 5th.
My wife has a work event in the evening, so I need to stay home with our kids.
Maybe we can do it another time, or feel free to meet without me.

Post by: Wil_Austin_TX on October 30, 2014, 06:04:08 PM
Bummer! Surely we can move it back a little so everyone can make it. How does the 12th or 13th work for everyone?

Hey guys, I would be interested in meeting up. I nominate a meeting at Frankenbike Saturday Dec 27th. If you are mustachian, you like bikes and this is best place to find parts, bikes, and talk with cool like minded people. Lets say 11am. Its going to be at yellow bike project this month. Ill be selling parts, with my longtail homebuilt ebike.

Like this idea.  Perhaps schedule a mustachian meetup before/after Frankenbike each month.

http://frankenbike.net/. Is Jan 31st at yellow jacket social club. I didn't go last month due to poor weather. But I should be there this time, with parts to sell. Females get free tun-ups from the LBS.

Count one more for interested in an ATX meetup. Did it happen in December post-Frankenbike? Are folks rallying around Jan Frankenbike?

Post by: Goober98 on January 20, 2015, 09:51:26 AM
I would be interested in Austin meet-up as well!  I don't ride a bike so I will likely skip the Frankenbike,
but I would attend a different event!

Also interested. Glad to see a few others. For what it's worth a park is always a winner. Play structures for kids, picnic area / tables for adults, water, open space etc...

For consideration: if anyone is South of Town Lake, then Little Zilker is pretty fabulous. Northwards, Ramsey Park is pretty good. Both offer reliably easy parking or roads with bike lanes to get to, and plenty of flat green space with known working water fountains and play + shade structures. They're my favorite family weekend day haunts...

Frankenbike has been rescheduled to neat Sunday the 8th at Yellow Jacket Social Club. I didn't go to the December one due to rain. I am looking forward to going because I have bike parts to sell! Craigslist is not great for small stuff, but I've sold a bunch on there.

I would be up for a different venue too. But to me, I want to do productive stuff (such as selling bike parts).

Maybe someone just needs to take this meet up bull by the 'stache. (see how I mixed abuncha metaphors:)

How about we meet at Ramsey Park, 4201 Burnet Rd, 6pm Saturday September 5th.
https://www.austintexas.gov/department/ramsey-pool
Let's make it a brown bag instead of pot luck, since there's no way of knowing how many will show up.

We are 2 who will show up. Please reply if you are IN. Or to propose a different date/place.

On Google Maps, it appears as though there's a series of concrete benches near an ampitheater that might be your best bet on a Friday afternoon. (The only other option with seating/cover is the playground.)

I might attend.

I just got to Austin on Thursday and woke up in the morning with the same bug. I thought it was allergies but I'm still fighting it. I had plans to show today but after running around most of the day I had to bail. Sorry folks I just didn't have it in me and thought I better rest so I can enjoy the rest of my week.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: Bicycle_B on September 06, 2015, 04:29:05 PM
Luckily, three Mustachians did go to the meetup, and had a good time. 

As far as I know, no one brought or passed on any colds.  Fresh watermelon was shared, also chocolate chip cookies, perched on cool limestone.  Family talk and personal stories bubbled around while other users of the park bounced basketballs and picnicked.  Bits of finance mixed with occasional adventures in work from the perspective of our Mustachian band and a variety of other stories.  By the time dusk brought our conversation to a close, everyone seemed interested in continuing and adding to the new tribe - by meeting again, maybe next month.

One thing mentioned was that some of the commenters had wished for a week day instead of weekend day.  Possibly some people will do only one or the other; maybe we could alternate.

So, would anyone who wants a weekday (or weekday evening) meetup like to step up by proposing a day in early October?

Post by: igm on January 13, 2016, 06:21:18 PM
It is about time for another Austin meet-up with fellow Mustachians and FIRE-minded friends.

How about a weekday evening this time.

To determine which evening and time is good for you, please take the poll: http://doodle.com/poll/ezpdvd9y9cper9g6

I am thinking a trailer food park or coffee shop in central Austin somewhere off MoPac with warm coffee, tea or hot chocolate: Mozart's Coffee Roasters, Cafe Medici, Houndstooth Coffee, Monkey Nest Coffee, etc. As long it is relatively easy to get to for those north and south, and fits in with the frugal life style. Any suggestions?

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I'm not in Austin yet but thinking about moving there...it made it to my top 4 places. My Sister lives there and my Mom is fence sitting about moving there. I but plan on taking a 14 State tour looking for a new place to live. I should be in the area around the end of Feb/early Mar, it would be cool to meet up with some of you to pick your brains on the area. If you have any pros/cons about the area feel free to PM me. Thanks!

20+ people have responded. That's great. Monkey Nest Coffee's maximum capacity is only around 20.

Any other suggestions for a cafe, pub or restaurant for coffee, drink or food.

Mozart's Coffee Roasters was suggested (large patio and parking up above): http://mozartscoffee.com/

The eclectic Spider House Cafe: https://spiderhouseaustin.com/cafe/
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: purplepear on January 28, 2016, 06:48:50 PM
+1 vote for mozart's!
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: veloman on January 28, 2016, 07:21:22 PM
I would like to do this. I voted, any time other than weekday daytime is good for me.

I would vote for:

Austin Java at Parkway  (great food, (coffee and beer too) good prices, and not full service (small tip).
Whole Foods downtown - the best deal in town is here at the taco bar - just get one taco and load it up for $3

I've found that food trucks are not particularly any more frugal than other food establishments. Though if it's warm and place with benches could work ok.

Whatever place it be - needs to be bike friendly accessible.

Oh - Frankenbike is this Saturday the 30th and it's at Yellow Jacket Social Club. It would be a good place too. http://frankenbike.net/frankenbike-austin-126-january-30-2016-10am-4pm/

Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: igm on January 29, 2016, 03:43:25 PM
Now let's agree on a place:

2 for Mozarts.

1 for Austin Java at Parkway or Whole Foods downtown (aka the mothership).

Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: Saving in Austin on February 02, 2016, 07:49:10 AM
Austin Java isn't any bigger than Monkey Nest.

I vote for Mozart's with Whole Foods as 2nd choice.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: veloman on February 05, 2016, 10:12:26 PM
Mozarts is cool with me.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: mr_orange on February 06, 2016, 06:15:01 PM
Thursday is supposed to be really nice weather in town.  If I can make it my vote would be for Mozarts over Austin Java. 
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: chardog on February 07, 2016, 10:31:54 PM
Or we could make it truly Mustachian and have it at a free bike-friendly public place and BYO coffee and edibles.

Some Suggestions:
Republic Square
The Open Room at Sand Beach
Ramsey Park
Lou Neff Point
Shipe Park


Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: igm on February 08, 2016, 04:52:44 PM
Looks like people can do Mozarts and Mozarts can accommodate us.

Austin, TX FI Meet-Up
Mozart's Coffee Roasters 3825 Lake Austin Blvd Austin, TX 78703
Thursday, February 11th, 2016
7 pm CST

I'll be on the patio with a sign (I'll make it relevant).

Austin forecast: no rain and around 65 degrees.

Chardog - good suggestion about bike-friendly as well as BYO food and drink. Hopefully, we can find out on Thursday what is bike-friendly for people (or commuting possibilities) for next time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this Thursday at Mozart's.

Sorry not everyone can make it. We look forward to seeing you at the next one.

PS I spoke with MonkeyNest and 20+ of us as well as their usual clientele would be challenging. Not sure if it was the space or staffing. When I spoke with Mozart's, they were fine. On Monday from 7 to 8 pm, Mozart's patio was fairly empty. Perhaps, we could try MonkeyNest another time to see if it works for us and them. With everyone's suggestions, we have a near endless list of places to choose from.

Apparently, that has been closed since mid-December.

Looking forward to the next meetup.

Very fun evening. Glad to meet everyone (15 people). Weather was wonderful. Mozart's patio worked out well. Some of us finally rolled out around 9:30pm.

Enjoyed hearing people talk about how they got into financial independence and frugal madness.

Others offered to host future meet-ups at their places. Let's plan another get-together including those who missed this one.

Look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

We are aiming for May, on a weekend. We'll figure out the details when the time gets closer.

The last meet-up was good. Hope you'll be able to make this next one.

I was just thinking that it is about time to organise the next meetup!

I had mentioned my house and I'm still ok for doing this.  Since it is a private address, I'd rather not post the address on an open forum.  First thing is to sort out the date.  I'll get the calendar out to see which weekends are free.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: igm on April 09, 2016, 04:42:02 PM
I couldn't agree more - it's time for another meetup.

Let us know what weekends are free.

Please, let me know your preferences for day and time that weekend.  I can probably book another weekend out for this but can't guarantee May.

The times proposed are bad for people with families.  I'd suggest doing something early on Saturday morning.

Saturday mornings are terrible for me with children and activities!  Quite a lot of people came to the last meeting on Thursday evening, without their children.  My house is well set up for children, I have a pool and a trampoline so I actually thought that it would be nice for us all to get together, maybe have a beer and cool off in the water.

I will put together an eventbrite for this and see what happens.

OK. 
May 7th at 5.30(ish) in NW Austin about 10 minutes from 183/mopac
Kids are welcome.
Food-  A potluck picnic
wine/beer/soft drinks -bring what you'd like to drink.
Swimsuits.... :-) especially if it's hot!

Since it is a private home if you'd like to come then please pm me for the address and contact details.  Car-sharing would be good!

Not sure how I missed the meet up in May, but very disappointed that I did! Worse, I proposed the Ramsey Park meet up last September & missed that! I was going to set up an actual Meetup.com Austin Mustachians group to make it easer to find others & organize get togethers, but they charge $9.99/month! And as a Mustachian I just can't do that:) I would like to try again to meet some of my fellows. I know some folks prefer a weekday meet up, but they are going to have to organize that themselves, not going to work for us. Wondering about a Saturday evening in September, the 10th or 17th?  People with small children might prefer the park again, or I love the Draught House on Medical Parkway, a great European-feeling beer garden. I set up a doodle poll, but that's only good for the date, please indicate your preferred location. http://doodle.com/poll/fzgebvgwgr8ikzhv

@clmsoup - that's very generous of you to offer to host, and if that's what the group comes to a consensus on, we'll be there.

My personal preference would be a location a bit more central (bike accessible) and outdoors, if the weather cooperates. Mueller has some nice grassy (and shady) areas where we've met up with another group. Throw frisbees, picnic, discreetly enjoy beverages; playground nearby. Here's the spot I'm thinking of: https://goo.gl/SVimcl

Another option across the road is Patterson Park. Or Zilker, but parking can be a bit difficult there for those driving.

Saturday Feb. 4 would work for us.

I considered making it private, but then it won't be searchable, so joining would be difficult.  Perhaps start as a closed group, then switch to private once it's a bit more established?

It's your group so up to you. Nothing stopping you from having two groups though, right? One private, one open.

I would think most people will find out about the FB groups here too.

If there's both a private and an open group I would imagine events could be posted in both groups. I'm not a facebook pro though so I don't really know the best way to do this stuff.
Title: Re: Austin, TX meet-up
Post by: Hunny156 on January 13, 2017, 08:26:11 PM
OK, so my group is a closed group, which means that someone can search for the group and see who is in it, but not see posts.  The next level would require someone to either friend me or someone else in the group in order to get in.  Not practical for this purpose, in my opinion.  But you are welcome to start your own group and see how that goes?  I'm not interested in "owning" any group, so everyone who joins is being made an admin, so they would all have full rights to the group.

So far, I've got four members!  Lol.

Fwiw, I am comfortable with IRL meetups where I tell individuals who I am, but prefer not to have my actual identity visible in MMM online groups.  To me the ability to say more of what I want comes from maintaining anonymity to some extent. 

I guess it was years ago when Facebook was so egregious about opening up people's privacy settings but it just doesn't feel like a private space to me.

I'm on the same page as you. I could do a secret facebook group that isn't searchable/discoverable by just anyone or an email list where everyone is BCC'd though.

Also don't mind talking to people IRL and deciding what to share with them, but do mind this info about me being easily found by anyone online.

Still open to doing something at my house, but if y'all wanted something a little more central, how about Blue Baker in the arboretum?  They have a huge indoor seating area, perhaps get together early afternoon?

Ah, I miss going to Blue Baker and getting their day old breads.

FInding good bread has been a challenge.  Hubby really likes their version of Italian Bread, so we will often run in when nearby to check on the day old bread.  I've got hubby trained now, he works in College Station from time to time, which is where Blue Baker originated.  Last week, he came home with two loaves of Day old Italian bread.  It's now portioned out and in the freezer, for the next time he wants a sammy.  :)

Freebirds originated there as well. I attended Texas A&M.

Show of hands, who is available to meet at Blue Baker on 2/4 at 3 PM?  Or shall we defer to another time and place?

Here's a direct link to the Facebook group in case anyone's having trouble finding it!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/389828901354772/

We will cross-post but it's easier to coordinate with people on a format that isn't these forums (the email notifications aren't great, people forget to check back)

Thanks! I made the June 24th meetup -- it was awesome :)

Looking forward to the July 8th meetup. Even the group is being frugal by running it as a Facebook group (no money cost) vs a meetup.com group (costs money).

I just joined; I think the Austin FB group is the closest to my area! I'm about 90 miles from Austin, but look forward to a future meetup!

Welcome! 90 miles is quite a distance, but you're probably right that it's the closest to you. I hope you can make it on July 8th and can take the rest of the day to enjoy Austin with the long commute.

I'm in the same boat.  I wish we had a group as active as the Austin group in my area.

Next meetup: Sunday May 20th 12 noon:

FI camp talks and bike ride in Pease Park.

Have you been considering going to one of the financial independence camps? Join us for an informal talk with folks who have attended Camp Mustache and Camp FI in the past year. Ride your bike to the park and or take an optional bike ride in Pease Park together after. The park has a playground and is another kid friendly location.
