Asheville Bloggers came together last night for some costuming, pizza slices, good ale, and fun at the Asheville Brewing Company on Coxe Avenue, downtown Asheville. Blog talk and general randomness of thought abided; a good time!

We welcome all Asheville/WNC bloggers to come to our gatherings!

Next time you all should pick a place with more parking. I came drove around the block twice and couldnt find a parking place anywhere and ended up leaving. Anyway glad to hear you all had fun though.

Uptown Ruler said...

sorry we missed you, vespere. parking downtown can be a bear.

theseus said...

it was a good time, nice to meet all of you. I apologize for not having been able to stay longer.

Edgy Mama said...

Vespere,
There are lots of side streets near there where you can park. Sorry to have missed you. It was great fun.

Thanks to to those of you who accompanied us to T's party. She'll be making witty comments on my blog as always.

much fun to see you all. amazing how close i feel to you guys, though every time i feel as though i should have spent much more time talking to each one of you. you guys are just cool.

Screwy Hoolie said...

Feeling's likewise all.

Hesperian! More parking! More Parking! Felicity just commandeered some Wachovia real estate. Just remembered, if you're parked there, then it's a parking space.

We talked about bumping the next gathering up a week, so it doesn't get all tangled up with Thanksgiving. Yes?

Thanks everyone for helping to create this community.

That may be true Edgy Mama, but between my being lazy and not really knowing my way around this town at night yet I didn't really want to wonder to far away from that area.

If I had known the parking there was so tight I probably would have looked up the bus routes before hand and probably caught a bus ride there. It is not a big deal though, you all have these things once a month so I will have plenty of other times to make it back to one of these.

Sweet Tea said...

All of the warm comments are going to make me all weepy! It was lovely to see everyone too. Can't wait until the next time.

Screwy, yes, we should stay away from Thanksgiving -- or we could get all into the season and have a Thanksgiving-ish potluck at someone's house. Just a thought. Maybe we should figure this one out soon to give everyone enough time to plan around the holiday.

Ves, sorry to have missed you. We'll do another suggestion thread before the next meetup.Hopefully we will see you next time!

Screwy Hoolie said...

I love a potluck at someone's house!

Who's hosting?

Uptown Ruler said...

*cough*

Sweet Tea said...

Now wait a second, Uptown. We'll have to talk. Anyone else? Other ideas?

Edgy Mama said...

I'm happy to host a potluck, either Friday, Nov. 18th (E-spouse will be out of town and the kids will be running around until 8:00ish, but what the hay?) or on Friday, Nov. 25, as we're here for the hols. Which date works for the most peeps?

Edgy Mama said...

Oh, and V., next time we're downtown, I'll give you a ride and point out all my secret parking spots around town!

Edgy Mama said...

Hmmmm, looking at the photos again--how exactly did Screwy end up with my mask all night?

Okay, I'll stop chatting.

Vespere Hesperian said...

I will be heading down to Orlando for Thanksgiving so I wont be in town. But, I will be here the week before that. So if you all have it then I should be able to come.

Sounds like ya'll had a blast at Asheville Brewing Company. Sorry I missed it. I even had a Tom Delay costume picked out for the occasion. Hah! That one's for Car.

So, what's this about a potluck on Nov. 18th?

Sweet Tea said...

Our inlaws will be in town for Thanksgiving -- which could work in our favor as they could babysit Bee for us. The 18th, as far as I know, would work out for us too.

When we get dates straightened out should we have a sign up thread for food?

Also, (just a suggestion as I am forever paranoid) instead of posting directions to EM's house online have people contact us through e-mail to rsvp and get directions. I would hate for coffee shop guy to have too much info.

Sweet Tea said...

Thank you EM!!

Edgy Mama said...

Okay, I can do November 18th at my house in North Asheville. And yes, Tea, let's have folks e-mail me at janus@annefittenglenn.com for directions. Since it's my house, I'll do paper plates, napkins, cutlery, etc. (if E-spouse is out of town, I will not be washing dishes all night!) and I'll do a couple of appetizers.

Yea! This will be fun.

Sweet Tea said...

I'll help you with prep and/or clean-up. Just let me know!
