I am in Nothern DelCo. It's a straight shot to the city on my bike or the bus, so I'd be up for something around Rittenhouse.

We'd love to meet up and we can travel anywhere. What do people think about June 6th?!

On a Saturday, mid-day around noontime may work best (some younger MMM like to stay out Friday nights and sleep in!)

I'd love to attend one of these Philly meetups. I'll be on a camping trip the weekend of June 6th...but maybe I'll be able to make the next one!

I'm so down for a meetup on June 6th for morning/afternoon. I'm in Rittenhouse/Fitler.  Does anyone have something specific in mind?  Off the top of my head, maybe Spread Bagelry and byo vodka Bloody Marys? Or meet up at Rittenhouse park? I'm down for anything and would love to meet some Mustachians :)

Alright folks - lets make some actual plans for the meetup on Saturday, June 6th at 11am.  TheContinentalOp, FrugalReader, FrugalThrift, Phillymom, mnml, are you guys still in?  Anyone else?

Let's meet at Rittenhouse Square Park at 11 - how about everyone bring some subset of snacks, drinks, blankets and we can have a low-key meetup. I can try to make some sort of sign.  I'm definitely in, and possibly will bring my husband too (he's not super into finances, but he's excited about possibly making new friends who'd be down for board games - I told him there was a high likelihood of that).

Plan on it...

Is this right?:
Rittenhouse Square
210 W Rittenhouse Square
Philadelphia, PA 19103
From http://www.visitphilly.com/museums-attractions/philadelphia/rittenhouse-square-park/

Any suggestions on the best place to park?

I will take the bus. But if I were to park, I'd probably go to the garage at 15th and Vine by Hannehman, and then just walk. It's $5 on weekends

I'll try to make it, my little trinity house in Wash West is for sale and I have to be out between 10-1 for showings, if I make it I will have bring my dog and he's a really old, slow guy and Rittenhouse might be a bit too far for him to walk (I'm down off of 7th St.). I missed the last one even though it was 6 blocks from me because I was meeting with my realtor and looking at properties.

daymare, I love board games and have marathon nights of things like Ticket to Ride, Caracassone, etc. with friends in NYC. Would love to meet board game fans in Philly, and a plus if they're Mustachian. :) I live in Wash West (and even if my house sells my plan is to stay in Center City) so I can meetup anytime if you ever want to get together.

Alright everyone - my husband and I will be there, we'll try to show up before 11 and have some sort of a sign that says 'MMM' on it.  We're mid-20s, I'm white and I'll be wearing an orange skirt with a blue tank-top, and he's racially ambiguous-looking.  Looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it tomorrow at 11 :)

lkell - Yay, boardgame fans!  My husband has a massive collection - cosmic encounter, battlestar gallactica, 7 wonders, merchants & marauders, ticket to ride, risk, lords of waterdeep, powergrid, powergrid first sparks, communi, agricola, summoner wars, dominion, innovation, citadels, love letter, and a few others.  Never played Carcassone, though I've heard good things.

I'm 50, will be wearing a black baseball cap, and carrying a Canon camera backpack.

I will bring snacks. Apples? Crackers?

Wow, that's a hardcore boardgame list daymare! I haven't played most of those but I'm always up for learning.

I'll be there if my slow, old dog can walk the 13 blocks to Rittenhouse. Some days I can't get him to make it more than a couple of blocks. I'm a white chick with long brown hair (probably up in a messy ponytail), I look about early 30s, and will have a ~60lb pound gray/black northern sled-type dog (one of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_Elkhound). Such a bummer about my house showings (at 10:30 and at noon), otherwise I could leave my dog at home and totally be there. I don't do the bike thing but I walk to work everyday and it's farther than Rittenhouse, over near Logan Square! Boo.

So we left at 10:15 and at 10:50 at a plodding pace we've only made it as far as 12th & Pine and the old guy just wants to stand and pant. Looks like I won't make it. I enjoyed meeting someone off the forum last summer and hopefully you guys have a good time and thete's interest in another meet up soon. I need to meet more financially like-minded people in Philly!

It's been a while since I've been on the forums and now I found out I just missed the meet-up. School has been keeping me pretty busy these last few months but the end is now in sight.

New to forum here; have been reading blog a while.

If people are interested I can host a Philadelphia Meetup at my office during a week day evening in August.

I have an office in Callowhill area (close to Ben Franklin Parkway).

Let me know if anyone has an interest

Fellow Philadelphians, let's plan another meet up! I wasn't able to make the last one, but I'd love to meet some local Mustachians.

Harshalpatel, August is nearly over, but perhaps a September meet up would work at your office? Or we could do another outdoors meet up at Rittenhouse or perhaps by the Schuykill.

Anyone else interested in planning something?

I'm in! Depending on numbers we could also meet in Valley Green for a nice hike while the leaves change!

Everyone, sorry for the late reply. (I though the Forum would email me when someone replies)

I can def host in Sept. Does a weekday evening or weekend work better?

As long as we have 3+ people we are good.

Yay, thanks for the update TheContinentalOp!

harshalpatel, I am definitely in if you host a meetup in Callowhill at some point this month.  I live in Rittenhouse and was actually quite surprised that nobody at the last meetup lived in Philadelphia proper (and in awe at how far some folks traveled).  Don't have a preference for weekend/weekday.

I can definitely make the next one. I sold the claustrophobic little trinity house in Wash West and moved to Logan Square/Fairmount area. I still work right in Center City. The only reason I didn't make it in June was - if you look back through the thread - that my poor 14 year old dog with bad arthritis just couldn't walk from Wash West to Rittenhouse and he had to be out of the house that morning for showings. Now he can just stay home. :-)

Hi all! I'm new to the forum and very interested in meeting some locals. I live in South Philly. If  the meetup is in the city, I can be available weekday evenings or weekends.

Hey everyone,

if we can do it next week, I have shared office space we can use around Callowhill.

How is Tuesday at 6pm?
