Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Dec 14, 2011, 11:44 AM

So....would be great to know when DUers are getting together - coffee, chats, etc....

I live in North Raleigh - yet to meet a DUer face to face (as far as I know, anyway!). I am working on a lunch or coffee with two of my former mod buddies - but in general - and in light of such a critical election, with NC sure to play a big part....how can we best use this forum to occasionally touch base for any number of reasons?

7. I live in east raleigh (essentially Knightdale)

I could do some weekend or evening stuff from time to time. It has been awhile since we had a NC meet up.

9. Would it be awful to make it in Durham?

I don't know my way around that well but love the idea.

11. Sure we are spread out a bit - but with some planning, we can manage some get togethers, I bet

let's let Christmas and New Years clear the calendar and see what we can do starting, say, mid January.

I am quite disappointed that I've yet to meet a DUer face to face (almost - on Thursday - but timing didn't quite work out!)

16. This is a great idea. We need battle plans for 2012

I'm in Durham, and also get lost easily, especially in the dark. Unfortunately, I don't have a cat's radar or night sight. :p BUT - I can get a little bit out of my comfort zone to meet some more DUers. Saturdays work best for me. Usually Friday nights, all I wanna do is stay home with cats. But if it's a Friday night in Durham....that's doable, but might be a long drive for other DUers.

21. My partner and I seem to be the farthest out

in Caswell County. Durham and Chapel Hill are easy; RTP slightly less so. Raleigh's a ways to go.

When my hubby gets feeling better (he's making slow progress, thanks for the loving thoughts!) we'd like to have another get-together out here at the farmlet. A couple of years ago we had or buds from KA and BlueNC out. We cooked for a week, LOL It was a blast and we'd love to do it over, probably in fall before the elections.
