    Dappered Meet Up?

    Anyone ever consider doing this? I think it could be fun to meet some folks from the forums. We could organize something by cities or regions. Just meet at a bar/restaurant and make some non-virtual friends? Thoughts?

    We used to do this in my car forums and it was always good to put faces to names. I also found that people were more civil when they had looked you in the eye at some point. That isnt really a problem around here though. I swear if we have one in my area I am wearing sweatpants and a tshirt to the first one though.

    I was thinking we could determine the sites by who is inetersted. Probably like

    DC
    NYC
    Boston
    SoCal
    Austin
    Other... (for people like @LesserBlackDog @bruschetta and @Duvel)
    etc.

    I'm not sure how Joe would feel about attaching the Dappered name to a meetup. The issue would be liability.

    The moderator team meets once a month at a high energy strategy retreat in an undisclosed city. @Joe drinks us under the table, @tdig shares full-color copies of the latest acquisitions in his collection of 12th century Eastern erotica, and @BenR sings K-pop karaoke like an angel. It always ends with a ritualistic bare-chested arm wrestling contest. @pdo has never lost.

    We could call it something else if there was an issue. Maybe one of the many lawyers around here could shine some light on any issues.

    ...and wow, @bruschetta, sounds like a great meeting!

    @bruschetta left out that he always insists on wearing his Sean Connery costume from Zardoz



    But really ends up looking a lot more like this:
