    Default Midwest GiTP Meet-up! Part Deux

    Is anyone interested in meeting up sometime this summer in the midwest U.S.? Preferably in or around the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area? I know there are a few people located near here, and thought maybe a meet-up would be possible.


    EDIT: So..we are looking at the following!

    THE DATE, TIME, and LOCATION:
    Location: Saint Paul - Chatterbox (Click for Map)
    Date: August 25th, 2007
    Time: Shall we say starting at 1pm CST and going until 5ish (or maybe later, they are open until 2am)
    What to bring: Yourself. Friends. Money for food and drink (& ID if you want alchohol). If someone has munchkin, that'd be great to play as well (Quick, D&D like, and simple without having to roll a char sheet.)

    More info about the establishment can be found here.

    Supagoof reserved the event room (MUCH THANKS!!!). It cost $0.00 (yay) to reserve and has a projection screen, so if we want we can hook up [insert gaming system] to it. The manager I spoke with was okay with us bringing in a system, or they have old school NES, Genesis, & Atari that they can hook up as well. (Games listed online at link above)

    I'd love to but I have no transportation there. If anyone from near Chicagoland wants to pick me up, I'd go.

    I have summer courses from July 9th to August 12, but I'm free after that until school starts. I'm always up for a road trip if I have the funds, and the cities would be a cool location because I have a lot of friends there I wouldn't mind seeing again. Since I don't foresee a north west meet up, it is probably this or a Cali one for me =P

    I'm from St. Paul myself and living just across the St. Croix for school so I could very easily do this.

    Subscribing to this thread. Should be interesting to see if this develops into anything.

    I'm up for it. I've lived in the cities for about a year now, so I can offer some small services as a local.

    There isn't anything on my schedule at the moment that would prevent me from participating in any particular weekend meetup, though my personal preference would be sooner rather than later.

    Cool! I'm living in South Carolina, but all my family is in MN, and we have a trip planned that way anyway. I could probably adjust the dates a bit if it is around the end of June / Early July....

    Great! The only dates that are completely difficult for me are June 1 and 22, and July 13 and 27. I'll be out of town for my internship seminar, but only for that day. It can be worked around. Also, August 3 is graduation, I'll be out of town again for that.

    Any time after August 4 is pretty much free, or I can schedule something in earlier...

    I'm glad so many people are interested!!

    I'm interested. I'm a lifetime resident of the fair cities, so I'd be happy to bounce some ideas off you all.

    Like the meeting place - might I suggest the Chatterbox in Saint Paul. It's a restaurant that has games. No, not like an arcade, but some nintendo's/atari's/and I think a sega or two at the tables. They also have board games and darts. They have couches to park yourselves at too. The best part, the games are free. They don't charge a thing for you to come play them. So it's a great spot to hang out and meet. Good food and drinks as well. (Karoake on Weds.) Honestly, a gamer's place to go eat.

    If that sounds good, I'll link the location and what not.

    Most of the end of my summer is free. Early July has some busy weekends.

    I'd be up for one as well. Any time in August except the first week works for me. June and July have way too much going on for me to make in either of those months, though.

    There's a distinct possibility that I'm going to be in Minneapolis sometime during August. We'll see if it happens to be whenever this is going on!

    Ah, but did you go to the one in Saint Paul (near the Ford plant in highland park) or the one in Minneapolis (Near Hiawatha close to the light rail)? Mpls was the original, but Saint Paul is much larger and more open (ie you're not backing your bar stool into someone else all evening). Given the choice, it's the Saint Paul one for me everytime. Plus they have a party room, which if we get this event together, I'm certain we could make arrangements to reserve....

    It was the one in St Paul. I didn't know there was another one. We've just moved here, but we've visited several times. I already LOVE Punch's Pizza!!!!

    The Minneapolis one is the (considerably more of a dive) original.

    Punch is straight-up baked ambrosia. We lived just across the river and probably went there at least once a month.

    There's a very high likelyhood that I will be there. Can a particular date be thrown out so more focused planning can begin?

    If you guys do have a meet-up, someone have a diet coke for me! :D

    I'm not far (in Chicago) but I might have a problem getting the time off of work, as I already have a trip planned in August (and it was hard enough getting off for that one....).
    A definitive date might help me as well.

    How much planning time will we need?

    To get things moving, how about trying a couple of dates? June 16th or July 14th? Both are Saturdays... We can try a date in August as well, for any who are interested in Ren Fest...

    Any other suggestions?

    Personally, mid-July would work best for me.
    If that's the date that gets set, I might actually be able to make it. Otherwise, probably not.
    But I don't want to have people under the assumption that I can make it.
    As it stands right now, we're short one manager and we have another one being transferred in about two weeks, so myself and one other have had to take the reigns with little help.
    Unless we get those two replaced before the proposed date, anything that I say now may become moot....
    I'm just working too much and have no one to pick up the slack....

    To give you an idea: Yesterday was my day off.
    I only spent 7 hours at work.... On my day off....

    Heh..true, you would then be free to go where you wanted to go and when. However, I would recommend waiting until we know for sure whether this is going to happen, as well as how much money you will need to get here. (and back home again). I mean, we like you and all, but you've got to go back afterwards...

    Yeesh, sounds like my week. I filled out my timecard several hours ago: it had 84 hours on it. Since Sunday.

    I'm surprised I'm still awake. Good thing I have tomorrow and all of next week off, though chances are pretty good that I'll be doing some work tomorrow anyways.

    I think I'm going to reverse my previous preference, and say that latter would be better than sooner... say, after my team is no longer booked for 3 months of work in 1 month's time, half of which on a brand-new product that no one has ever developed for before now.

    Id love to, but I dont feel like driving eight hours, even if I actually drove, to get there. To long of a drive, even though I was born and raised in the suburbs around St. Paul, Minneapolis, and much of my family still lives in that area.

    The Minnesota Ren Faire is an amazing one. I always enjoyed going there, but I havnt gone in like 4 or so years, and I wont make it this year either, just to difficult to get there for me.

    Anyways, have fun!

    Do July 14th! Then the UKitpers can meet up and think of the midwestitpers meeting up at the same time as us!
