This is an informal, unorganized and recurring event / debacle. No RSVPs are necessary, but feel free to RSVP if you'd like - it might help for the first couple meetups so we can find each other. There will be no email reminders or notifications about this meetup going forward as I don't want to be the cause of weekly spam-mail.
One of my biggest complaints about Meetup is that I have to RSVP for things. I don't know what I'm going to feel like doing 15 minutes from now, let alone days from now. So on a suggestion from Dave M. I decided to do a weekly happy hour meetup. Since I live on the East side and many of our members live on the West, Mark B. suggested we alternate between East and West side bars.
For the time being, we will see how the two bars work for us and we may move around a couple times. Eventually I would like to settle on one bar on the East and one on the West. That way people will know, without getting online, where they can go grab some beers and grub with other drunken atheists lurking around town.
I will not be attending every meetup, though I will attend this first one. The only thing we have to figure out is how to find each other since the meetups will be unorganized and have different people every time. I'm open to suggestions on that front. If anyone thinks meetup.com nametags would be a good solution for finding one another, please remember that we are the Drunken Atheists, not the Drunken Dipshits. For this first meetup, call me on my cell phone if you show up. Number is [masked].
ps- The first Eastside meetup will be next Tuesday the 12th. Stand by for a location as I have to do some recon. I tried to do some recon over the weekend but I just ended up sitting at one bar and getting drunk. Damn you Jim Beam!
