Let's close out the year with a final meetup! It's been a good year for Boulder Wikimedians: we had a (nay, two!) great Wiknics, had a small Wiki Takes America, and set up a mailing list of Coloradan Wikimedians. The plan was to meet up at Harpo's Sports Grill for lunch, but we're voting for a better place now. I (User:Gaurav) am heading to Durham, NC all of next semester (January to May), so this might be our last time to hang out before June!

If you have any questions, please Nuvola apps email.svg mail Gaurav or get in touch via the Colorado Wikimedians mailing list.

Last minute change: Sorry, peeps! I've just realized that the Southern Sun doesn't open until 11:30am tomorrow. I'll be there from 11am in case anybody shows up, but if you see this, please don't get there until 11:30am or be prepared to sit out in the sun with me. Cheers! -- Gaurav (talk) 07:38, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Your suggestions?[edit]

  • Harpo's? Really? Why not Southern Sun, Boulder Beer, the Dark Horse, or any other place that isn't filled with blaring televisions? siafu (talk) 21:08, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
riiiiight? Grye (talk) 08:00, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
We did have one <18 Wikipedian at the Wiknik in June, so a place like Dark Horse where they check IDs at the door might not work. Southern Sun should be fine, and I've never been to Boulder Beer! Let's blatantly violate WP:VOTE and vote on it. Winner on Wednesday is where we'll meet! :-D -- Gaurav (talk) 21:53, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
They do not check IDs at the door at the Dark Horse during normal meal hours, FWIW. siafu (talk) 02:48, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I did not know that. Thanks! -- Gaurav (talk) 10:34, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I've never been to Harpo's. All bars will be quiet 11a Saturday. Does it have anything going for it beyond big tables and blaring televisions? -—Kvng 16:37, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I pretty much just picked it because it's where we went for the Wiknic. I'm open to any place -- this suggestion of the Southern Sun interests me strangely. -- Gaurav (talk) 00:20, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I would vote for Southern Sun (beer, very good sammitches, close to BX/BV for us Denver folks), but since I don't know if I can actually go or not yet, I'm just putting it here for now instead of below in the hopes of attracting some folks to the bandwagon. siafu (talk) 23:53, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
    • Oooh, I hadn't thought about the connection for the BV/BX. Southern Sun works for me! -- Gaurav (talk) 00:16, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
      • Well, even if Siafu's not going, the nearness to BV certainly won't hurt my feelings. Seraphimblade Talk to me 01:57, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
