Vegas Meetup?
« on: June 12, 2015, 10:45:49 AM »
I'm in Vegas for another two months or so, and would love to have one more Vegas meetup.

Anyone interested?  What days/times work in general for everyone?

We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.

I'd love to host a BBQ at my house.  A Sunday mid-day would be best for that.  I'm near Tropicana and Boulder Hwy.

I'd be keen to meet some locals - having recently moved to Henderson from New Zealand.

We'd be down for this, but our summer is a bit prescheduled. Can't do June 20/21, July 11/12 or 18/19. Free otherwise.

Let's do June 28th @ 11 am.  I'll provide pulled pork and 'slaw.  BYOB if you wish. 

PM for directions.

Sounds awesome!  The wife and I are in.  Thanks Mirwen.  :)

Is there anything we should bring (besides B)?

Would anyone be interested in breakfast or lunch this Saturday June 20th to meet other
Sin City area mustachians. I am thinking chipotle or some place like that?

I don't know about doing stuff two weekends in a row.  Can you not make Mirwen's BBQ? 

Otherwise maybe something like this next month?

25th. Hopefully one of these will work. Looking forward to meeting all of you.

My attendance Sunday is now iffy--we may be going to visit my in-laws in California next weekend, apparently.  :)  I should know more by mid/end of the week.

I will in fact be out of town.  Sorry!  Feel free to have it or reschedule--if you have something Sunday I'd still be glad to meet up with others another time that works.  :)

OK  I'm going to be busy July 4th weekend.  How about the following Sunday, July 12th?  Can most people make that?

Has this meetup fizzled or already happened? I'd love to meet some Vegas mustachians. Anyone living in the northwest interested in a casual afternoon bike ride, hang out or whatnot, I'd be interested in that as well.

I didn't get any replies to the suggested date, so it fizzled.  Please feel free to suggest another time and date.  I know there are several of us that would like to meet, but seem to have very full summer schedules.

Aug 11-20 is our last two weeks in Vegas, and we'd be down for a meetup pretty much any day in there!

Arebelspy when are you guys going to be back in Vegas. I'm looking at my next Vegas trip and my dates are flexible.

We're leaving Vegas Aug 21.. after that, it's more likely that we'll see you in Hawaii than here in Vegas.  :D

(Though Ali is going to Hawaii this Sat. for a week, I am not.)

I would be interested in a LV meetup.  I live up in the NW part of town, but can travel wherever.  As far as scheduling, weekends tend to work best for me.

Arebelspy (Joe) linked me to this thread. He was trying to organize a Meetup in the summer but it never ended up happening and now he is traveling. Anybody still have interest? I am open to meeting as a group or even just an individual basis with any of you.

I am also putting together a course to teach the concepts of the book Your Money or Your Life (YMoYL) using the materials they have at http://www.financialintegrity.org/. I want to use Meetup.com as the main platform to organize this. If any Mustachian's would like to help just let me know!

I'm looking at going to Vegas near the end of the month. I'll be playing poker and doing some looking for rental properties. I don't have firm dates in mind yet, but I probably won't be there during the weekend.

I have heard from three Mustachians so far, seems we can get a small group going in Vegas fairly easily. I was able to meet alpharomero on Tuesday and planning to meet synonym sometime next week. If anybody else is interested in meeting please reach out or reply here!

Hello! In a new new newbie, also new resident in the area and wondered if anyone wanted to plan a meet up soon. I'd love to meet some local stachers and maybe learn from your example!
Also, anyone use republic wireless in the valley? How's the reception? <--see already brain-picking

I'm moving from SoCal to Vegas in early January. What sold me? Multiple places offering rooms to rent for $350. Score! Super Mustachian for sure.

Anyway, following this thread because I'd love to meet up once I'm settled. The SoCal meetups have always been fun and interesting!

I'd be interested as well in getting together for an informal meetup.  As long as we are not traveling my schedule i pretty flexible, I live on the East side of town.

I'd be down for hiking, a quick coffee, or a meetup at a local park. Let me know.

@Punxsyboy - I just moved here so perhaps you can suggest a place?

The closest park to me is Justice Myron E. Leavitt and Jaycee Community Park which looks nice.... But I can walk or take a bus anywhere.

Perhaps next weekend if I'm not still sick?

At the moment I'm laid-up with a knee injury, so I won't be hiking for a bit....hopefully only a couple of weeks but may have to go see an Ortho.  :(

I'm not in Vegas yet but thinking about moving there...it made it to my top 4 places. I've been there a few times but never looked at it as a future home base. I 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.

Then coffee/tea/food meetup instead? Or you can't go out at all?

Hobbling on crutches at the moment, I'm gonna give it a couple more days & if not improving will see ortho.  I'd like to be off crutches for a meet up.  But if I get really board, who knows...lol   So much for skiing next weekend....

Hello Vegas Mustachians,

I have had the pleasure of meeting five of us in the area in the past couple of months (some readers of other FI forums)!

We want to organize a GROUP meetup for March.

I am thinking we meet on a weekend in the afternoon or evening. This will avoid a lot of time conflicts from conventional work. We can do either a lunch/dinner somewhere or a social activity such as a hike. What are you all up for? We will set a date and time around the middle of the month to give everyone time for putting it on their schedule.

I would definitely be interested in getting together with everyone.  Saturday afternoons would probably work best with my schedule.

That sounds fine to me. If others can confirm lets plan it. How about Saturday or Sunday the second week of March (12th or 13th)? This gives us time to get a small group together.

Super last minute, but if anyone is free tonight or tomorrow sometime I'd love to hang out!

Long story short, I'm visiting a friend and they were called away last minute on business until Sunday. So I'm in Vegas by myself and I don't know anyone or know what to do. Send me an email at gwen@fierymillennials.com if you can help me out!

I just moved to LV/Summerlin 2 weeks ago and would love to meet up with any other Mustachians in the area! I'm open to whatever, but always love a good happy hour. Let me know if anyone's interested in doing something and I'll make a plan :):):)

Been a bit quiet in this forum, so I don't know if there are enough to come out for an interesting happy hour, but I'm game to come out to a happy hour, a dinner, or even just to b.s. over coffee.
