STREETS MN Meet-Up?

Postby Qhaberl » June 22nd, 2018, 9:52 am

I have been posting on the form website for about two years or so.

I have absolutely enjoyed the wonderful and stimulating discussion about different developments.

My life is currently boring right now, so I would say I spend a good amount of time checking the forums, or going out and taking pictures.

I know there are a lot of us on the forum website. Not everyone is from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

This leads me to the reason I am writing this topic. Has anyone ever thought of doing a streets MN meet up? I would absolutely love the opportunity to meet others who post on the forum.

If this is an a thing, I would be more than happy to help organize it.

The annual fundraiser meeting can count as meetup. I wouldn’t mind having another during a warm month outdoors.

I am in favor of this. I'll throw out Finnegan's Brew House as a potential meet-up site. It's convenient for me and a non-controversial, popular new development.

Well it looks like there are four of us. Thats a good number to start with. If more people want to join they can. How about doing something toward the end of july? We could go to Finnegans.

There should be an annual picnic in either July or August on the blog side of streets.mn. I can link to details when those become available.

That would be great! Do you have to be a streets mn blog writer to go?

That’s awesome! Definitely please put a link in here when details come available. I would definitely love to go. It would be great to be able to put a person with these forum names.

I would definitely try to go! A summer picnic/happy hour as a biannual complement to the winter fundraiser.

I can't seem to manage to be in town when streets has an official meetup. I'd definitely be interested in a happy hour in early August.

Can we all wear name tags with our forum names? Or maybe we could play a guessing game?
