Downtown Lunch Meet-Up
I’m biking over from the North Shore. Since I haven’t been in Market Square much lately, what racks are around other than the three rivers racks by the gyro place?
Woohoo! Looks like I’ll be able to make it – looking forward to meeting you all!
there are several signposts around the square and it looks to be about 8 of the wave loops in the central area.
so unless there is an influx of 50+ riders, most people should be able to find a place to lock up securely.
@pbeaves so unless there is an influx of 50+ riders, most people should be able to find a place to lock up securely.
Thanks. Good to know.
Glad I was able to make it down, +1 for putting faces to names.
I enjoyed it too. Very nice to meet everyone. I’d like to do this again too – maybe outside on a nice day when it warms up?
Not only was I in a meeting, the meeting was in the big room on the top floor of the Frick Bldg, where I work, which has an excellent view of Market Square. As the meeting was getting underway, I could see a couple of cyclists head toward that corner. Gahhh…
I really enjoyed that. Thanks. uncomfortable leaving the bike where I couldn’t see it though. no problem when I got back to it.
It was great meeting everyone today. Pbeaves – I would have never guessed it was you from your avatar. Still looking forward to Pedal for the Pantry (and I may have recruited a couple friends).
After some encouragement from folks face to face at the Pantry ride, I’ll take the initiative.
How about Thursday, 4/11? Different day of the week, but let’s still say noon. Is four days enough time to set things up?
since it mostly involves choiosing a location & time, not much else to do but have people arrive.
I’m in for the 11th
Bummer – I have a meeting and won’t be able to make this one. Maybe next time!
I have (grinding teeth) 12:00 and 12:30 status meetings now and who knows how far into the future.
I’m a maybe. Schedule looks OK for now, but who knows what the week will bring?
1 pm would be a lot easier for me than noon. If we keep having these maybe we could make a few at 1?
With less than 24 hours to go, we have three 50-50s and a couple of definite “No”s. If I was to say 12:45 or 1, would that improve anyone’s chances?
As to where, I’m starting at Forbes/Fifth/Grant, can walk just about anywhere downtown, or bike to Strip, 10th/Carson, PNC Park, fairly quickly. Open to suggestion!
I would be there (possibly a few minutes late) for a 1pm.
I’m starting within a couple blocks of you and am fine with wherever, just outside golden triangle might make me a touch later.
Let’s keep it close in, then. I was thinking Jimmy John’s on Grant. Maybe we’ll see pearmask flying in and out on occasion. She works there as a bicycle delivery person.
And let’s just say 1, to make it clear. Does that help anyone else?
Maaaan, I am working at the new South Side store right now, so I’m (mostly) not at Grant anymore… wish I would be there to say hi to all of you!
JSYK, we’re still on for 1 today! I’ll be walking out of the Frick Building at Fifth and Grant at 12:55, then walk the half a block over to JJ shortly thereafter.
Jimmy John’s is farther away from my office vertically than horizontally, so this is super convenient for me.
If the weather is still OK then (chance of showers later), we’ll sit outside. If history is any guide, we’ll have a lot of bicycles for company. There are usually three or so tied up there.
If you want to contact me off board, text me at fouronetwo threeethreefour sevenohseveneight.
Cool, see you there.
@pearmask Are you the one I rode the elevator with at ShowClix some time ago? Good to put a name to a face around here.
Nice little turnout of six of us. If you got there late and didn’t see us, we went across the street to the Mellon Green space. I think everyone there connected at least one new face to a name.
Thanks for coming, guys and gal!
bummed i missed it, but was the first day of the new job, unable to reschedule.
We should do another one of these, maybe next week or so.
EDIT: I briefly had a post up about doing this today, but then got reminded of a lunch meeting. Sorry…
Sure! Christine (I don’t know her last name or her handle on the forums) had an idea for a lunch meetup when we were talking at OTB. Although that lunch meetup may need to be planned off-the-record.
I would be up for doing this next week. I guess not-Monday. When and where, Somebody?
Met up with @Shawn last night and we jointly decided it would be a good idea to do this again sometime soon.
Suggestions on day of the week? Time? Where? Satellite groups doing likewise?
Just tossing it out there.
New month, let’s try again.
Just throwing it out there, anyone for Wednesday? Will anyone be around? Or should we wait until a full week when people aren’t booking out of town?
