A meetup riddle. . . .

The whole group, north sideOkay, dear readers, what’s green and fuzzy, has 26 legs, and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?

The answer? Either 6 1/2 billiard tables (not likely), or . . . the Vancouver Metroblogging team! . . . All wearing our Christmas sweaters, or green felt tophats left over from the Celtic festival, or . . . nevermind, so it was a dumb joke.

But regardless, the Vancouver Metbloggers will be at Subeez Cafe at 891 Homer St [map] next Tuesday April 11th at 7:30pm, and we’re throwing the doors open (metaphorically at least, lest we let the weather in) to any readers, fans, critics, or anyone else not otherwise engaged to come have a beer with us.

If you’re planning on coming, please leave a comment so that we can reserve a table with enough seats.

Hope to see some people there!

    Maybe this is the time when our groups mingle?

    sounds like a hootenanny.

    Funny because I was thinking about having the meeting at Subeez too.

    Well have it on Tuesday, then we can have a real cheer off. You won’t know what hit you when I bust out the spirit fingers.

    As a side note I’m having trouble explaining to my girlfriend what a “meetup” is about. She’s particularly skeptical about the idea that we’re inviting other people.

    im not a metroblogger/beyondrobsoner & i haven’t been to any blogger meetups in van – although i’ve been blogging since ’04. we were at the podcast meetup in Feb though and it was really great to mingle, rub elbows and of course … podcast it.

    By all means, feel free to come join us. I can’t guarantee that it’ll be quite as technologically exciting as the podcast meetup, but it’s a great and interesting bunch of people, especially if the BeyondRobsoners join us as well.

    Well, I thought the company and conversation the last time were both very nice, so I’ll do my best to drop by this month too.

    Jeffery: the confusion is because nobody can believe that anyone who would blog could have anything resembling a social life.

    The misunderstanding, is, of course, that bloggers use the medium to simulate a social life. “Meetups” are just a further extension of that simulation, however halting and inaccurate.

    Meetups are to blogging as SCA is to Dungeons and Dragons.
