Monthly Fantasy and Sci-Fi Social

Contact #[masked] - This is our monthly social gathering, and while we will certainly be discussing books and movies, this meeting is not dedicated to discussion of a specific novel.

    I got there and didn't see you guys, after asking around at several tables. Maybe next time.

      I usually don't put up any signage, and the best way to find us is to call the contact number. Sorry to have missed you.

    There is nothing wrong with the Drought House. Free parking, good beer. Even food

    Also: please no more venue changes the day of the event.

      He changed it Tuesday, so sorry you didn't see it! I thought we talked about Wednesday.

    • Zach A.

      There was a comment Tuesday (which I will admit I did not see, though I thought I had read the whole list), but as of 7 this morning the 'location' was still the GM.

    Hi, I'm new but what about Barfly's? It's cheap and has a patio? Never that full.

    • Kate

      This might be a good "try something north" place...or is it too far for everyone south?

      March 8, 2013

  • Zach A.

    Well fuck. Not going to make it, given that i am at the GM. See you chumps another dau.

    Ack... last minute schedule conflict.

  • Daniel H.

    Poker night. I'll drop by for 30 mins to at least say Hello.

    March 6, 2013

  • Star C.

    I totally understand the reasoning behind the change, but won't be able to make it anymore. See ya'll for the walking dead.

    Flying Saucer has lots of space...

    February 17, 2013

    • Chad P.

      I like the saucer, but it gets really crowded Friday nights when the weather is nice.

    one of those annoying SXSW people that would have been happy at the Gingerman

  • Victoria G.

    WOOT! Now I can be there. :D

    March 5, 2013

  • Chad P.

    Well, I'm afraid of change anyway. Back to the Draught House. Maybe we'll try new things after SX.

    March 5, 2013

  • Victoria G.

    Or maybe (just this once) we could do something a bit more up north...get outta downtown completely? (just a thought - don't go throwin' bricks at me or nothin')

    March 4, 2013

    • Kate

      Do you have any suggestions? I'm not terribly familiar with spots up north.

      March 5, 2013

    • Victoria G.

      I don't...but I like Robert's idea of a restaurant with a bar...

      March 5, 2013

  • Robert A.

    I suppose we could broaden our horizons a little and try something like a roomy restaurant with a bar. One example might be Cafe Express on Lamar.

    1 · March 5, 2013

    • Christopher M.

      Cafe Express has a bar? I always thought of it as a salad-and-pasta counter-service chain. Huh. I haven't been in one in a while.

      March 5, 2013

  • Victoria G.

    Just saw that the venue had changed to Ginger Man? If this is so, I'm probably not going to be coming down on Friday. My only transport there is via car, and I don't wanna deal with traffic and parking. I'll catch up with you guys another time. :)

    March 5, 2013

  • Chad P.

    Hm...Chris has a good point on the parking issue. I'm really not sure what to do about it.

    March 5, 2013

  • Christopher M.

    Umm, I hate to be a party pooper, but I really think the Ginger Man this Friday is a *bad* idea. It is the first Friday of SxSW, the pub is a 5 minute walk from the Convention Center (the hub of SxSW). And there is a sold-out event *at* the place, which means we might not even be allowed in. Anywhere even near downtown, Rainey St., East East Sixth - all dangerous.

    March 4, 2013

    • Star C.

      I still think the Ginger Man is a good idea. It will mean that I won't have to choose between sxsw stuff and the social... But that may just be me.

      March 4, 2013

    • Christopher M.

      *shrug* I might be Sx'ing anyhow, but I can bus in - no $30 parking for me. But it's a tad unfair to those who drive. And the Ginger Man itself may be inaccessible w/out an Eventbrite ticket. I don't mind super-crowds too much, and we may be waiting a bit on bar service - but then again, this is SxSWi, and not the back half. *meh* If everyone else is up for it, SxSW is a fun experience that I am planning on anyhow.

      March 4, 2013

  • Christopher M.

    Wuh? A different place?!? . . . will we all wear goatees? (or shave them off, as the case may be . . . )

    February 14, 2013

    • Robert A.

      National Fake Moustache Day was Feb 24

      1 · March 1, 2013

  • Robert A.

    Has anyone tried the Hi Hat Public House?

    March 1, 2013

  • Christopher M.

    It just occurred to me - this might not be the right time to sqithc to downtown. This is the first weekend of SxSW

    March 1, 2013

  • Kate

    Whoa whoa whoa, this is crazy!

    February 14, 2013

  • Chad P.

    Oh, and while all the socials were updated, we'll chat about new places to try.

    February 13, 2013

  • Chad P.

    guys. Guys. GUYS. we're trying a new social spot. I have it on good authority the new place will have beer.
