I haven't been to Arthur's but several of you have told me it is a fun place. What is the best way to meet? Should I reserve a table or is there a spot that would be good for us to meet? Help!

Linda, as far as “ organizing “ events, = “ Been there, Done that, “ over five years ago, when I had a Meetup Group !

As far as “ criticizing others “ ?, I always give my honest opinion when asked by Meetup, to tell them what I thought about that night’s event that I went to, just like other members are asked to do. You should not be so “ thin-skinned “ when members give you feedback for an event !
Linda, please don’t take my comments personally, because they were not intended to criticize you, but only state “ What I thought About The Event “ that I went to that night. I think this is an automatic question, that Meetup asks all members who went to that specific event that night/day, asking members to give their honest opinion on that night’s/day’s event. I just gave my opinion. That is why, on Wed nite, I posted a comment on the group’s website, trying to warn you & other members about Arthur’s being a place where smoking is permitted there, and that if you wanted to, you might cancel Arthur’s then, & substitute another place to go instead for that upcoming Friday night
Not an organizer, but I used to be several years ago, & if Linda needs any planning tips, my door is always open.

Jim, your email said there was smoking but I didn't get the feeling it would be like Nate's where the smell was overpowering. I am glad that you received my email that we were moving to another location. We stayed there for it seems like 2 hours. I was not aware that they closed at 10. I would like to let you know, "clubbing" is new to me. I don't know the different venues, there pluses and minus'. When I started the meet up, I went to the restaurant/bar in advance to check them out. I have a demanding job and other personal interests that take up most of my time. This is a voluntary organization where I spend $75/6 mos that I bare the cost.

I hope in the future you will organize meet ups rather than criticize others. I was very concerned about moving the meet up and checked my email frequently in case someone didn't know where Blue Mesa was. I agree, it was a bust and I plan to limit the number of meet ups I organize and once my 6 mos are over, end the meet up. I hope you find other meet ups better meet your social need.
A total bust ! I posted a comment two days earlier, trying to let members know in advance, that there was smoking at Arthur's, but I guess Linda didn't read my earlier post. As stated earlier, I said I had another commitment earlier that evening, & that I would probably get to Arthur's around 9:30.As I left my earlier commitment at 9, I just happened to notice Linda' comment at the last minute, saying that it was too smoky at Arthur's, & now emailed everybody to go to Blue Mesa instead ! When I got there nobody was there, plus the fact that one of the waiters told me, that they are now closed, & they always close at 10 on weekend Friday notes.Again, this event was a total bust, & should have been planned out better, earlier on !

Hmm...yeah, mistakes do happen...takes passion to be an Organizer...not to mention patience as 50% or more of the folks do not show up or arrive way late... What Group are you an Organizer of? Perhaps Linda could learn a thing or two from it :)
Am back at Arthur's...it is fun!!
Didn't find anyone at blue mesa
We just left...sorry :)
Not Social House, Blue Mesa on the Patio
Heard you're going to social house?
We are at Blue Mesa
No, we are at blue Mesa, we are on the patio, do you know where we are?
I will be late tonight. I will try to get there by 8-8:30.

Too much Smoking moving to Blue Mesa 5100 Beltline in Addison

Not going to make it after all. Hope another evening there gets scheduled soon.
I am so sorry to have to cancel tomorrow. as I was looking forward to meeting everyone. But I'm having a garage sale Fri & Sat that starts very early and ends late. I look forward to the next meeting though. Thank you!

Already committed to another get together. Maybe next time.
I have another previous commitment earlier that evening, but I will probably be there around 9:30 pm, the time that Razzmatazz usually comes on, after Russ.
I have been going off & on to Arthur’s for a long time, and for those that are new to Arthur’s, THERE IS SMOKING INSIDE THERE, due to the fact that the Town of Addison DOES NOT HAVE A Smoking Ordinance for their city. Arthur’s does have smoke purifiers inside there, and it is not real smoky, like it used to be before in the past. F F Y I, I just thought that ya’ll might want to have this bit of info so that ya’ll will know.
sorry.....wish I could.

I have reserved 2 tables close to the dance floor. Thanks for the suggestion. If I get more people coming, I will reserve another table. See you there!

Will be at a conference that weekend and can't make this one. Y'all have fun.

It might be best to reserve a table. If possible, try to get a table close to the dance floor.

Ues, I will be there! I have not been to Arthurs in a very long time, but from what I remember it's a fun and classy place. And I look forward to meeting everyone too. I can't wait!
Will get there later. Best to try to get table near the dance floor.
Arthurs remodeled a few months ago with an expanded lounge and dance floor. Upscale, more mature audience. Easy to get to right off Beltline with Arthur's own free parking lot. I look forward to meeting all of you!
