Let's meet up and parler français encore un peu! :)

I don't know about the rest of the group, but I do not nearly get enough opportunities to practice my French in Columbus as I would like. Seeing as we have a great and sizeable group, if anyone else is up for meeting up a little bit more frequently please let me know what days are best for you! For me, it's the weekend. Usually, Sunday anytime. Also, in terms of transportation, I live nearest the Short North area and would like to meet around there (Cup o' Joe for ex). Let me know what you guys think, svp ! :)

    Just a quick heads up : I won't be able to organize another meet up this weekend, even though I would have loved to and I miss all of you already. I will be going back to Pittsburgh indefinitely. :( But luckily, it isn't that far away. :) If there are enough of you interested in meeting up at Cup o' Joe again this weekend, I am sure they would love to have you! Just make sure that whoever decides to take over the organization this time gives them a quick call before coming just so they know to anticipate a sizeable group. I have a feeling they want us to come back, we were so friendly and curteous !!

    (finally a wifi connection!) Everyone, it was a real pleasure to meet you and talk to you, get to know you a bit. I had an awesome time at the meeting, and was amazed that 2 of you knew my town in France. I can't go to the next meeting because I don't drink or go to bars, but hope to see you again soon at another meet up. Thank you Nerina for organizing this. Thank you Doris for giving me a ride and for helping me when I couldn't hear well! Passez tous une bonne journee!!
    Ariel.

    Hugely successful meet up. I don't know whether it was the location, the day/time, or sheer blind luck but there was quite the turn out. People kept rolling in well past 2 o'clock and people stayed until at least 3:30. (when I had to take off and hope I didn't have a ticket) We had French representatives from all over the world in attendance! Thanks again to everyone and esp. Nerina for arranging it.

    January 11, 2014

    There are a few spots near Hubbard, apparenly a new lot opened up. We are still here if u guys can make it! Otherwise, we will see you at the next meet up!

    For this meet-up, let's go with Chaltelaine in Worthington and then we can move it around from there a bit. All the way out to the suburbs is hard for the reason Nerina expressed, but we can move it around the metro core a bit. Famille, I live in Clintonville so I'm not up for a round trip, but I am willing to pick you up and bring you to Chatelaine so long as we are a bit early (arrive 12:40) so I can visually ensure we have a larger table setting (depending on how many say "yes). Folks, I will have a little placard on the table.

    Hello everyone! I am new to Meetup and not quite sure how it works. I was born and raised in France and been living in Columbus for about 5 years now. I would love to meet you guys and speak my native language with you, I'm just not quite sure if I need to do anything before or just show up and introduce myself. Help anyone?

      Excited to see that there is another Frenchy here!! I can't wait to hear what part of France you're from!

      That would be great, thank you! Where are you? I'm close to Hilliard-Rome. Is that too far from you?

      January 9, 2014

  • Nerina

    Location is Short North at Cup o Joe's. I contacted the staff and they will have tables reserved for us! They will have soup, sandwiches, pastries and coffee for purchase of course. I love their pumpkin soup, if they still have it :) Street parking could potentially be difficult, but there are usually spots near Warren and Summit (per Cup o Joe staffer) that are free. This is a great central location, cozy and wonderful staff. Is anyone going to have difficulties getting there?

    January 9, 2014

  • Rosemary L.

    I'm still confused as to the venue. Was the final decision the short North Cup o' Joe or the Worthington la Chat?

    1 · January 8, 2014

  • Marian P.

    As long as I know where we are meeting by Saturday - I should be there! Is it La Chataleine, Worthington on High St., or Cup o Joe's 606 North High Street? If at Cup of Joe's - where is parking without it costing a lot? I am unfamiliar with that area - been there only a few times.

    January 6, 2014

    • Nerina

      The Short North location. Usually there is street parking but if not, usually you can find free parking near warren and summit.

      January 6, 2014

    • Rosemary L.

      And parking meters on the cap won't have restrictions on a Saturday

      January 6, 2014

  • Nerina

    Hey guys sorry about the confusion! So, yes in fact I will be there and thanks so much guys for picking up my slack! :) So, I planned for us to meet in the Short North location. I have attended language meetups there before and there seems to be no problem. I think if we are there Saturday at 1 p.m. we should find tables inside and parking either on North High Street or usually you can find free parking at the intersection of Warren and Summit, about a block away from Cup o Joe. I hope everyone can still come! :) There will be other meet ups, next time, I would love to try La Chatelaine, if you guys are game! A très bientôt ;)

    My apolgies. I thought Nerina wasn't coming. Since she is, let's all follow her lead. I have not been to Cup O Joe's in the Short North and don't know its size or anything. But, I am happy to bow out of helping to organize and to follow her lead. Take your cue from her. We meet wherever she says to meet!

    Reminder that we are meeting at La Chatelaine in Worthington. Because we are so large I spoke with them and they will reserve the back room for us. If you responded "yes" but now are not going to come, please change your RSVP. It is the only way I have to make sure I have a good sized space for us. I will see you all on Saturday at 1PM at La Chatelaine in Worthington. Thank you so much to Nerina for pulling us together. I am very excited to meet everyone!

    Marian and Beth, I have not had any issues parking in the Short North on a Saturday afternoon so I agree with Nerina that the Short North is a very good spot that should not be ruled out due to concerns about parking.

    1 · January 4, 2014

  • Famille D.

    Ive never been to a meeting before but would love to! I dont know if everyone is fluent and I hope all of the conversations are in French. Im from France snd moved to the US in 98. Id prefer a quiet place and not a bar (I have hearing problems). Closer to Hilliard would be nice, since my husband wrecked our vehicle snd we dont have a new one yet...

    January 1, 2014

    • Nerina

      Oh no, so sorry to hear about your car troubles ! The one thing about Columbus is that neighborhoods are rather spread out (compared to my native Pittsburgh for example). I suggested the Short North because for this auxiliary French meet-up, I wanted a more central location. Someone might be coming down from the Hiliard area, maybe a carpool could be arranged ?

      January 3, 2014

      Je me prefere La Chatelaine en Worthington, et typiquement pas de problem de parking...

      1 · January 3, 2014

    • Marian P.

      La Chataleine, c'est bon pour moi! - il y a pleine de parking aussi.

      January 3, 2014

  • Nerina

    Salut tout le monde ! I'm so happy there is at least a small group interested in a second monthly meet-up. Unfortunately, I may not be in Columbus this weekend so I will join you for the next one :)

    January 3, 2014

  • Nerina­ changed the date and time to Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 1:00 PM

  • Marian P.

    Moi? Je me prefere le matin ou l'apres-midi, pas dans le soir. Est-ce qu'il y a un probleme de parking chez Cup o Joe sur High Street? Le samedi matin marcherai bien pour moi. Mais, tu peux faire ce que tu veux, et je suis tres content d'avoir un groupe un peu pres de moi, qui habite en Westerville. Pourqui pas La Chataleine en Worthington?

    January 1, 2014

  • Mary H

    This location is much more convenient for me. Good idea. A Saturday night would be nice. I think Cup 'o Joe may be too loud after 7 pm, though.

    I would love to but Mondays and Wednesdays do not work for me in general. How 'bout next Friday in the evening (and folks could grab a bite to eat if they like before or after) or Saturday during the day (if just for coffee)?

    January 1, 2014

  • Jacob R.

    I don't get enough opportunities either generally because I'm either busy or lazy or thinking about the frustration of speaking butchered French nowadays gets to me. I prefer meeting in more bar type settings also. That kind of atmosphere seems to loosen the tongue of people a bit more. I, too, am in the Short North area so if we can find a decent location that would be perfect.
