What would folks say to meeting in perhaps Waukesha?  Not exactly half way, but closer to Mad City.

If people are thinking of Waukesha, I’d suggest:

– Neighbors Social Club (very cool, kinda jazz club look and feel)

– Generations (newer, trendy, serves great food)

– The Black Trumpet (higher end, but if there’s a lot of us, they do have a conference area, and maybe twist their arm into showing some of their rooms – the place is pretty dang amazing if you’ve never looked!)

– Taylors Peoples Park (again, great food, good atmosphere)

I’m all for a weekend meetup, but I’m not ruling out a week day evening meetup.  Most places will give you a discount on room costs or other things potentially if you have a mid week event.

I live out a ways from Milwaukee, so location-wise, I’m biased towards a venue near the burbs (Waukesha, Wauwatosa), but I can very easily be arm-twisted into something in Milwaukee proper.

And if I can make it, I’ll volunteer taking some photos (and if space allows – maybe some photo-booth kind of fun?)

Alright, this has gotten kinda quiet, so I’ll poke the community.

I’d like to suggest a weekend meetup in mid-December (say the 12th or 13th).  Very low key just get together, hang out, introduce each other type meeting.  I’d say bring your fiances (I know I’ll bring mine).

Lets all hang out, get to know each other, maybe have a meal as a big group.  If people are feeling industrious, bring a notebook and maybe some of your ideas and such so we can share things among each other – or not and just enjoy hanging out (because we all need excuses to hang out in a group and eat food, drink tasty beverages, and so forth :D).

What do ya’ll say?

Man, I wish I could be there!  We’re not moving to Milwaukee until June, but hopefully we’ll be out there for Christmas or Spring Break.  Hoepfully I’ll be able to meet up with y’all too!

If this goes well, maybe this could be a regular thing.  I’m a member of the Cream City: Milwaukee Flickr group which meets monthly.  Not that I’m saying we should/can’t meet monthly, but maybe if people like it, keep it going. 4x a year?  All depends on how much people want to invest.

Ahh…now I feel left out! I’m way over on the other side of WI, as in you guys look at the state as being a hand and we’re taught it’s an idianhead since my community isn’t even able to be found on the “hand” of WI. We’re the boogers in the indian’s nose. Look at a map of WI and you’ll see what I mean.

But if there are any Western WI ladies who wanna meet up I’m game!

I would meet up on a weekend as I am all the way in Oshkosh. Would prefer Madison as I used to live there and am familiar with it but sounds like more people are in Milwaukee and that is the same distance. December completely wouldn’t work though as we are going Mall of America 1st weekend and Kalahari in WI Dells the 2nd weekend. I would make the trip though!

@mrskesslertobe

Delafield would not be a bad option – the Delafield Brewhaus comes to mind, along with Milwaukee Street Traders.  I have not had a chance to check out some of the newer spots in Delafield myself (Reveres (sp?), etc), so we could have options there to meet up. It’s a little closer for the folks from Mad City who might join us too.

So, this is Not Wedding Related but I just find it funny that I just saw this today when last night I was talking to the Fiance about moving out of California to Madison! Hello Wisconsin Bees!!!

Yes, you should come to Wisconsin!

Remember – happy cows don’t come from California – they’re really from Wisconsin 😀

Yay WI, I moved here from Ohio and I absolutely love it. The people in WI are the most friendly of anywhere I have been.

I’d love to do a meet-up! But if we have a meet-up before December 18th, i’ll probably not be able to attend, especially the 13th or 14th of the month, as I have papers and finals and more papers due starting December 7th and running to the 18th! Perhaps we could meet up on the evening of the 19th or 20th? 😀

I live in Riverwest in Milwaukee, but I’d be willing to travel out to the burbs (which would curtail my drinking, but there is much else out there besides a good drink!). I’d need the exact address as anything much past Brookfield and I am completely, utterly lost. Last time I was driving in Waukesha I was lost for 30 minutes trying to find the courthouse (getting my FI’s birth certificate)! Would this be With or Without FIs/DHs?

@rabbit

No fear – we’re Wisconsinites – we can’t help but get together and hang out right? 😀

So, lets say, December 13th (I lean towards that because some other photographers and I are looking to have a Help Portrait Session on December 12th in Milwaukee), in Delafield.

I’ll start an ‘offical’ thread on this with a link to an Upcoming event page.  If you want to come, please please please sign up there.  That way, we know numbers, and can plan accordingly with the staff of the Delafield Brewhaus.  Or, if you think of a better location, please, suggest away!!
