Atlanta, GA - Memorial Day (May 29, 2006)

There seems likely to be some sort of meetup this day, as runningbyrd, and Dan and SMK, will all be in town.  At least some people are attending the Braves-Dodgers game that day as well.

Feel free to chime in if you’re interested or have information to share.

Thanks for posting this JLeeds.  I kept meaning to do it and always forgot.

Is anyone else going to be at that game?

Someone using a name including Dr. Love said they were going in IRC Tuesday.  I don’t know who else might be going.

Byrd had mentioned going to Fat Matt’s for BBQ before or after the game.  When do you and Dan need to be at the airport?

i am in town, so I might join in.

as for suggestions, i say meetup in Midtown near Piedmont Park. couple of nice pucs there ( prince of wales and old smith )
easy to drive or take the MARTA to the game from there.
Feel free to ignore this suggestion as this very selfishly motivated!! I live just next door to those places :)

Our flight isn’t until the crack of dawn Tuesday morning, but we have to return the rental car at the airport sometime Monday evening before 6:30 or 7pm to avoid paying exorbitantly high penalties.  So something before might work better for us.  I’ll talk to Dan to see what he thinks.

Someone would probably be glad to give you a ride back to your hotel after, if needed.

All right people. What are the chances that any of you would brave atlanta traffic to meet at fat matt’s on friday night? This would be in addition to the meetup on monday morning before the game, which I’m working under the assumption is a done deal (restaurant to be decided, but may have already been chosen). If noone can, then I’ll plan on just going back to Athens after going to the aquarium on friday, but I’m up for it if people want to make it.  Is it possible for people with families to make such a meetup?

If noone can make it on friday, there’s a chance I’ll be able to meet up again monday night, but my mom might want to go out to eat with me instead.

Right now, breakfast before the game on monday is set for Ria’s bluebird

That’s nearish to the ballpark, so people will be near there anyway, and they have good biscuits if memory serves. Time is yet to be determined.

I would be all for this if it weren’t for the fact that Atlanta scares the bejesus out of me. Not the city itself mind you, just y’know getting anywhere in it. I can get to and from the Ted from Athens, and through Atlanta to Nashville, but that’s about it.

Well, I’ve got good news for you latnam. The places we are looking at for breakfast are all near the ted, so getting there won’t be a problem. And by near, I mean walking distance if you had the time and it wasn’t hot outside. Do you have a ticket for the memorial day game?

I might be able to make the Friday thing, rb.  And LatNam, I could offer you a ride, I expect.  Can you find Roswell?

Apparently I’ll be in atlanta in one week! We have a head count of two for the possible friday meetup? I wish there were a better wya of getting this to people. I guess I’ll have to say it in the game chatter everyday, just in case.

In seattle, we just have an email list.

So what is this friday meetup?

If it is in the evening, I can be up for it :)

Well, i was thinking about putting together a night at fat matt’s (or some other bbq place, fat matt’s has just always been my favorite.) Werr and SMK won’t be there, but i thought we could do the atlanta crew.

It appears that a band named “work in progress” is playing there next friday night. There’s no band cover or anything, for those who haven’t been there.

I’m flexible, time-wise, just need to get to athens that night.

Definitely. I was planning on either bringing my stepdad, or aj burnett’s cousin, so the more the merrier. We are definitely on for friday night then? Godot?

Random time: 7:30, friday night? Does that work for people? I’m flexible if it doesn’t. I’d like to get there late enough to maybe catch the band and for people to be able to make it without too much traffic trouble, but early enough for you folks with kids.


On monday morning, 10:30? Game’s at 1, right?

10:30 should work.  It’s what, two and a half hour drive from Greenville?  Waking up SMK should be fun.  I’ll have to remind her this whole thing was her idea.

We could go at 11 instead. Just wanted to give an hour for eating, and then time to get to the game and time fro the two of you to explore the park a little since you’ve never seen it.

I’ll ask SMK.  We can explore the park during the game.  NL games are boring, 1-2-3 innings and such.

See the cat on my avatar? That’s what you’re going to look like when I’m done with you. I think the technique is called water boarding.
