Meet and Greet, Mobile, AL, 22FEB2013
Posted Feb 11 2013 - 18:45
Tankers, we're on the road, and stopping off in Mobile, AL We could do with some local guides to help us integrate into the local nightlife, or at least just keep us company for a few hours in the evening.
There will be a meet and greet, on the evening of Friday 22 FEB 2013, about 20:00
A few WGA personnel will be there
The intent will be just to sit around together and have a chat.
Here's what we don't know, and where, as we've done before, you guys come in:
Where exactly it will be
How many people will be there.
So, if you're interested in attending here's what you do:
Reply below and clearly state if you intend to attend, and if you're bringing a friend or two.
This will give us an idea of how many people the place will need to accommodate. If you're under-21, please also tell us. (If nobody's under 21, it makes it easier to find a place).
If you have any suggestions on a place to meet, please state it below. It's your town, you know it better than we do. Here are the requirements:
Must be able to hear ourselves think. If we're going to be talking and answering your questions, we can't have a live rock band playing in the room. Or a German Oom-pah band, as happened in Fort Worth. Kareoke is also out.
Should be under-21 friendly. If we have to abandon this, so be it, but it is a preference.
Somewhere within staggering distance of the Historic District will be nice.
We will return to this thread in a week or so, do the headcount, review the suggestions, and then post up where to meet.

Oh, me being underaged it kinda makes it harder, because you cant just show up to bars, but I'm very mature, and I'm able to show up regardless if you guys drink alchohol or not.

I live in Birmingham, and am bringing a buddy who also plays. You've got TP Crockmeier's, and Heroes which are both downtown and cater beverages.
There are several good seafood shops - Original Oyster House is one, and you also have Wintzell's downtown. Just let me know the final word, and we'll see you on the 22nd.
