Let's meet in Madison, WI

This inspired Meetups in Madison

Selected By: Mary Ann Swissler

Sundance Theatre, cafe area

Madison, WI (map)

Selected by: Mary Ann Swissler

Meet and have coffee at informal Internet cafe which is connected to a movie house. There are these large comfortable leather couches and chairs where people can sit and talk or type on their laptops. Or, God forbid, read a book.
There's no strict itinerary -- yet -- but rather a chance for Madison writers to meet face-to-face, exchange sources, troubleshoot issues of all kinds.

    Hi Everyone,
    Unfortunately, I will be unable to meet with you this afternoon. One of my corporate clients e-mailed this morning asking if I can turn in some marketing materials I'm writing for them Monday morning instead of Wednesday as originally scheduled. Since there are still several hours of work to be done, I will have to chain myself to my desk for today. Apologies for bowing out, hope you all have a beautiful time and I hope to meet you at a later date.

    How does the date and time sound to everyone? Sunday hours at the cafe (Caffe 608 is official name) are 9 am until 10 pm.

    I have some deadlines on various projects I have to meet for Monday so will probably have to work this weekend. Is next weekend good for anyone? I could do either Sat or Sun then.

    Both Sat and Sun would be excellent for me.

    Posted by joyce sexton December 9, 2010

    Sat or Sun fine with me. I like Sun afternoons, too. What about rest of you?

    Hi Vesna,
    I just moved to the neighborhood last month so only know a few locations. I'm closer to Northport and Troy.

      Welcome to the neighborhood!

    How about 1 pm on December 12, or 1 pm on December 19? Hi Julia, I am in the Oak Park Terrace mobile homes across from the Stop-n-Go, know where that is? Are you nearby?

    Hi Vesna,
    Yes, it does sound like we are neighbors. Personally, since the group is so small I think it would be great if we can find a time that works for all 4 of us to get together. Any suggestions about another day and time than Thursday the 16th?

    Posted by J December 8, 2010
  • joyce sexton's Photo

    Well, so far there are two of us. I'm not sure about this meeting, but we could at least exchange names and go from there. This whole thing makes me think of throwing a bottle with a note into the ocean. What do you think? I live on the west side of Madison.

      Hi, all! I live near the airport also. Julia, sounds like we are neighbors! My nearest big intersection is Northport and Packers, how about you?

      I would LOVE to go and meet you all. Unfortunately, Dec. 16 is terrible for me -- it's the final rehearsal before a choral performance on Sat. Dec. 18, and I can't miss it! Maybe we could also meet up another time? (Sunday afternoons are best for me, in general.)

      Posted by Vesna Vuynovich Kovach December 8, 2010
  • joyce sexton's Photo

    That's a good idea. If you can't make it, post by 4 p.m. Otherwise see you in the leather chairs.

    Posted by joyce sexton December 7, 2010

    6 is good for me. Since there are only three of us, let's have some kind of agreement about letting each other know by a certain time if we can't make it. Maybe (except in case of emergency) post on here by 4pm if we're not going to be there?

    Posted by J December 7, 2010
  • joyce sexton's Photo

    Fine with me, should we just go with 6?

    Posted by joyce sexton December 7, 2010
  • Mary Ann Swissler's Photo

    I'd like 6 or 7, too. Preferably 6. Who's suposed to do the final annoucement? I'll do if no one wants to.

    Posted by Mary Ann Swissler December 7, 2010
  • joyce sexton's Photo

    Either would be ok with me

    Posted by joyce sexton December 4, 2010

    So are we setting it up for Thursday the 16th at Sundance Theatre? Is it possible to do it a little earlier than 8pm? Maybe 6 or 7?

    Posted by J December 1, 2010

    How about the big leather couches at Sundance Theatre in Hilldale Mall?

    Posted by Mary Ann Swissler November 30, 2010
    • joyce sexton's Photo

      I'd be glad to. Before I was thinking about asking Julia if she wanted to just talk on the phone. I'm open for just about anything though.

      Posted by joyce sexton December 1, 2010

    I live pretty far east--out by the airport--but have a car so am fairly flexible as to where to meet. Since I freelance full-time, pretty flexible as far as times, too. If you want to get together for coffee let me know.
