Limited Attendance: Happy Hour at the Butcher and the Boar

Our group is getting a lot bigger.  That's great, the more the merrier, etc. but unfortunately a lot of places people want to try can't accommodate a group our size for a reasonable amount of cash.  So every other week we're trying something a little different to go to more places:  some limited-attendance happy hours with first-come, first-serve signups.

The first one is at The Butcher and the Boar.  They've got craft beer and bourbon, including tasting flights, and some award-winning food.  Yes, bourbon flights.

15 people tops.  As a courtesy to others, please change your RSVP if you're not able to attend.  Also, I really really hate to say this, but please don't crash the event if you're on the waitlist - having 30-40 people show up would result in a not fun time for all...

    Nice to try someplace different that seemed to draw somewhat of a new crowd of attendees. Good food and service.

    Jim--thanks for the notification for us wait listers. I would have attended but unfortunately I can't access my Yahoo email at work (it's blocked) so I didn't get the notification until it was too late. I hope everybody had fun!

    As much as I would love to join -- I will be late as I drive from work (from maplewood) -- I cannot be there before 6pm -- so I am giving up my spot so that some one else can better utilize it :) i am available after 6pm so if you guys decide to go out after the meet up -- I am up for it.

      Bummer ... I was hoping to talk to you today about Amsterdam. I used to hang out in Holland quite often. Maybe next time :)

    Hi everyone! I hope all had a wonderful day. I'll have to cancel my spot as it looks like I'll need to work late tonight. Have a blast and I'll see all at the next one!

    February 13

  • Theresa

    I had to cancel my spot for tonight. So hopefully someone from the waiting list can get in now. See you at Crave!

    February 13

  • Maya

    I've decided to let somebody on the waiting list in since I might be late

    February 12

    • Jim A.

      Thanks, we appreciate it! Hope to see you next time, when we can fit everyone.

      February 13

  • Coryadams

    Any openings yet?

    February 13

    • Jim A.

      Yes, there are. You're in! Meetup handles last-minute cancellations in a really dumb way, so I just made some manual changes and added in the first few people on the waiting list.

  • Carrie

    Hi, can I still join this event? It said the RSVP is closed :(

    February 13

    • Jim A.

      Sorry, for this event you can't. We can only have a limited number of people because of the venue. You're welcome to join as next week at the Shouthouse, or after that at the American Burger Bar though!

    What are the happy hour specials they offer?

  • asa a.

    There's no +1 - is that intentional? Cause I really want to bring my wingwoman!!!

    February 5

    • Jim A.

      It is intentional sorry. Long answer: They have a really small definition of an "event" size group, and a crazy minimum for events. It seemed fair to give preference to our members. Significant others, wingpersons, BFFs, whatever are welcome pretty much all the time. Just not this one :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
