Topeka/KC/other MOKAN-area Metafilter people welcome. We need to pick a date and time between July 17th and 19th and a location.

Should be pretty easy finding a venue. Here is a quick few: Free State Brewing, Eighth St. Tap Room, The Replay. The 17th or 18th would probably work best for me, but I could do the 19th if that's the prevailing sentiment.

YAY something to do in the middle of summer!

Put me down for maybe, and I have been wanting to try Free State for a long-ass time.

wanting to try Free State

Please tell me you haven't been depriving yourself of your Oatmeal Stout, too.

The Oatmeal Stout is adequate, the Copperhead Pale Ale however is amazing. I might be in for a Lawrence meetup, I don't know if I'll be in town yet though.

I'm just going to interpret those as three votes for Free State. If enough folks confirm that they will attend, like 10+, I'll reserve the room upstairs.

I'll be there!

Free State works for me. It'll be better for me if we do it on a weeknight.

I would drive from Manhattan for a Free State meetup. Sunday night is not great, but Thursday, Friday, or Saturday would be fine.

It's probably out of the question, but if people just want Free State beer, Vermont Street BBQ runs a special on Tuesday night for $1.50 pints, and they have oatmeal stout, ad astra, and copperhead on tap.

TypographicalError, I don't think Tuesday will work for the tenth anniversary thing, unfortunately. (As far as I'm concerned, though, that Vermont St. deal is the best beer special in town.)

It sounds like Free State is the place, and that Friday will work decently enough for most folks. Any preference, time-wise? I'm thinking 8:00 or 8:30, so everyone not from Lawrence will have enough time to make it over after work.

OK, three days later and there are no objections. Date, time and venue are set.

Yay, we're official!

Crap.. I want to meet you all, but I am off on a work trip that week. Nards.

I might come.

It was awesome!

So cool to meet you all! My only regret is that stevis didn't show, I really wanted to see that mathowie blow up doll.

I had a great time! Now I know what faces go to what comments.

Good time. interrobang took a few pictures.

Sadly, I was sidelined with a virus. Perhaps I can be at the next one.
posted by reenum at 10:38 AM on July 18, 2009

My wife [mtevis] and I stood around outside Free State for a while and ventured into the cacophony of the bar looking for people who look like they could know Matt Haughey. The problem is that everyone did.

We hung outside for a while and asked people as they were going in before eventually deciding that no one else showed up and headed to the Eldridge's bar.

Next time I need to wear a sign, I think. :-) Sorry we missed you all. Next time!
