Callahan's Pub in Mira Mesa happy hour weekdays 4 to 7. If you wanna meet after seven go on "Wednesday Wing Nights" from 7 to 10.

I'll bet a good number of y'all work nearby in Sorrento Valley.

Submitted by temeculaguy on February 9, 2009 - 5:29pm.

That place looks cool and you can get to it via a number of freeways, Mondays or Tuesdays after work for happy hour is my vote, my calendar gets busier as the week goes on and my body is already in peak performance for Monday night drinking since I just completed a seventeen week program of conditioning called Monday Night Football.

Submitted by nostradamus on February 9, 2009 - 5:38pm.

Haha nice. Well I can guarantee they'll have all your favorite beers... Unless you like "sex in a canoe" type beer...

Submitted by Enorah on February 9, 2009 - 5:42pm.

We are open to anywhere, really. Just can not make it on the 17th.

Submitted by PCinSD on February 9, 2009 - 5:43pm.

Good beers, decent food. Same menu and beer as San Diego Brewing Company.

Keep in mind that "Quaff" (probably San Diego's largest home brewing club) has their meetings at Callahan's at 7pm on the 4th Tuesday of every month.

The elusive sdr is going to reveal his true identity??? I'm not sure I believe it...

Anyway, Callahans seems like a good halfway point, count me in.

Saiine so I assuming you are now handling this so I won't bother!

Submitted by CA renter on February 9, 2009 - 7:00pm.

That looks like a fun place. Only question would be if it's too loud.

Glad you're going to try to make it, Rich! :)

How about at OCR's house? :-)

Submitted by saiine on February 9, 2009 - 8:18pm.

Hey Socrattt,

No disrespect meant. We have had several meetups prior and I have been meaning to come back and organize a 3rd.

I didn't mean to hijack your thread.

I honestly do not care where we have it. Encinitas seemed to work well in the past but I would be willing to drive wherever in the county. :)

Submitted by temeculaguy on February 9, 2009 - 10:12pm.

What about Monday Feb 23 at callahans? anyone, bueller? If it ends up sucking, we go for the pizza place a week later. Why does it have be annual? Let's go monthly and move it around. At some point we need to do a Sunday in the vines and you bums gotta drive up to hells kitchen. I figure i'll take you here and show you how we dirt people live.

Submitted by cashflow on February 10, 2009 - 1:34am.

finally you Piggies schedule one of these elusive meetups I've only heard of happen.....we'll see if babysitter is available....I may try and show as well. Would like to thank some of you for helping to keep me sane and not succumb to the bubblethink!

Submitted by AK on February 10, 2009 - 1:57am.

I voted for Encinitas. Depending on how the weather goes, I'd also suggest the tapas bar at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel. It's worth the trip (and the $6 Coronas) just to see the world's most beautiful urinals!

Sounds like Callahans it is, despite it not being a pole option.

Can somebody post the address or general area?

Submitted by CBad on February 10, 2009 - 10:37am.

I'd prefer Encinitas but will try to attend wherever it ends up as long as one other female is in attendance! ;)

Submitted by Butleroftwo on February 10, 2009 - 10:37am.

I'll put some topics on the table;
- Bone grafts
- Gold
- Yachts
- Weather
- Layoffs
- IT jobs
- Stimulus
- Foreign policy
- Rachel Madow
- Marx
- Obama
- The amazing city of Temecula
- Realtor contact information
- Loan guy contact information
- How difficult it is to actually buy a house now that the credit market is so tight
- Inventory is drying up and or stagnate (i.e. overpriced dogs)
- Home values have outperformed the stock markets
- Gold prices are the same as they were in 1980 or so
- A down payment is actually needed to buy a house now and how most of it vaporized while in a safe mutual fund this year
- Spending money for condoms will launch us out of this recession because "THATS THE POINT spending is stimulus"
- Why spend 8 trillion when you can spend 10 trillion because "The failed policies of the past administration of high spending and budget deficits didn't work.
- How great it is to have a POS rental dishwasher

I haven't been to Callahan's in ages. I will try to make it - just have to talk hubby into letting me go out drinking with the boys while he stays with the kids. I wouldn't want CA Renter and Enorah to be the only women.

Submitted by UCGal on February 10, 2009 - 11:23am.

Callahan's is a great idea. Middle of mira mesa makes it convenient for people on the 15 corridor, the 5/805 corridor, etc.

And given the number of engineers in this bunch - the suggestion that many of us work in Sorrento Valley is probably accurate.

I'm going to try to make it.

Hey guys, I haven't read the entire chain - have we settled on a date for our meeting??

Submitted by SanDiegoDave on February 10, 2009 - 12:13pm.

I think we're settled on Callahan's on the 23rd. Happy hour/after work time frame 5-7.

Submitted by SD Transplant on February 10, 2009 - 1:09pm.

I guess we'll need some stickers & markers to put a face to a piggs's log in name :)

It will go like this "Hi, my name is SD Transplant, and I have been a piggoholic for about 3 years :)"

Submitted by sdduuuude on February 10, 2009 - 1:12pm.

Is this thread the same as this:

Would love to see some of you again!

You'll recognize me.

I'll be in the ape suit drunk and crying.

Submitted by sdrealtor on February 10, 2009 - 4:04pm.

Alot of what I've said and how I said it over the last couple years was simply to be heard over the noise. I hope everyone can separate online personas from from real life character. I'm actually a very simple low key guy in person and am looking forward to finally meeting some more of you.

As strange as it seems I think I'm probably looking most forward to putting a face with name for Josh and AN two fo the piggs I bantered with quite a bit a while back. You are coming barnaby? AN you have no excuse. you could ride over on a Razor scooter.

No sweat sdrealtor, if you want, you can buy me a beer. Then I will wear your name tag and you can wear mine.

If they chase after me, I am pretty quick, I will get out the back door, you can get out the front door (but don't forget your beer), then will meet again at the gas station to plan (drink) further.

Submitted by anxvariety on February 10, 2009 - 5:37pm.

Won't be there, still a Pigg but not a Californian anymore.. make sure to give props to Rich. He had this site up back when Mozillo was still in his gold plated tanning booth 12 hours a day, back when there was never ever no way not even a chance possibly to lose money in real estate, and while you couldn't walk 10 feet in SD without hearing "we can get you locked in! lock one in before it's too late!"

Submitted by sdrealtor on February 10, 2009 - 5:52pm.

This is gonna be fun.

Submitted by Reluctant Lurker on February 10, 2009 - 6:15pm.

In my attempt to expand my horizons beyond my Macbook screen and go outside with real people, I will be there. However, in my necessary effort to recreate the comfort of my online existence, I will neither introduce myself or comment. I will simply exist in close proximity, but not within the Piggington action, take in every word as I have for 4 years, and remain invisible. Despite my continuing anonymity, I'm looking forward to seeing all of you. From a short distance.
