July 17th at the Free Trade Cafe? The more who join, the more likely we can finalize a date!

July 17th, anyone? If so, I'm sure if the number interested Phoenician Mefites grows, the more we can gather ideas one which of the three dates to meet on.

As for a place, I nominate the Free Trade Cafe on the NW corner of Roosevelt and Central, which is also right next to a bi-directional lightrail stop.

Let's do this! I know somewhere in this gritty, dry boiler, room of a town is a cabal of frustrated community members finally ready unleash their snarky, helpful, wise, insightful, surprisingly volcanic wit.

ChickenNuglet and I might be up for a meetup. The last one we went to was at Dos Molinos which is less accessible, but has great food. Another good option would be Tradiciones at Ranch Market, I've never had a less than great meal and the margaritas are good. Ticoz has really good food, but the drinks are...meh.

I might show up, especially if it's at Free Trade, which is in my building.

Er, Fair Trade.

If I'm in town, happy to meetup wherever!

Ahh geez, I see my error. It's Fair Trade, yeesh. Wish there was a way to edit that.

Would caffeine also have the benefit of loosening inhibitions or would it aggravate them? Anyone know of a spot that serves both alcohol and coffee in Phoenix?

I'm in for wherever.

I can possibly make it, depending on work schedule for the week. I totally flaked the last one, so would like to make it to an atoning meetup.

I'm up for it.

FYI - I think the Fair Trade Cafe's new address has not been updated, but it is right next to a Light Rail stop on Roosevelt and Central.

I'm in, as long as my heap of a car can make it up from Tucson. (Looks like the Tucson meetup died in its infancy.) Looking forward to meeting you all.

I'm in ... Love Fair Trade. If others eventually want to drink, there's Carly's, Lost Leaf and The Roosevelt in walking distance.

Hey guys, anybody here going to be coming from Tucson? I'm thinking my car's not gonna be able to make it, wondering if I might be able to split gas with someone who's making the drive. I'm clean, don't smell, not picky about music, etc. Anybody?

I'm down!
