Save the date!
We are planning another OKCTalk.com gathering for Wednesday Evening August 14th, approximate time 6 to 8PM.
Location TBD but it will be a special place in or very near downtown. May also have a special guest speaker.
More details to follow but please put this on your calendar and plan to attend! The last meet-up was very successful, with over 30 in attendance.
The fine people at Dunlap Codding law firm have graciously offered to host our event!
We are still set for Wednesday, August 14th from 6 to 8PM.
There will be food and drinks and perhaps a guest speaker.
D/C has an awesomely renovated building on Film Row with great indoor event space that opens to an outdoor patio. Will be a great setting for us.
More to come, including an RSVP list so we can get a somewhat accurate count.
I like you guys an all...but not that much to have to deal with you all without an ignore feature.
Which of course translates to: I have to work that evening but have fun! LOL
as long as there is good local beer on tap
I think I'm still new enough that I haven't yet pissed anyone off, so I'm interested.
I'd like to recommend a place too... Saints in the Plaza. Great place to meet up in the early evening before the usual crowd. I don't know what their capacity is, or how many people you'd expect for this one. But they've got great beer at a decent price.
I enjoyed the last one and am looking forward to this one.
Ed Shadid (councilman and candidate for mayor) is planning to attend.
Don't worry about pissing anyone off on these boards. If you haven't, then you probably haven't posted much yet.
Even if you have got in a spat with other posters, meeting them and others is the perfect medicine! It was great last year and I expect we're going to have a lot of fun again this year.

Funny about get-togethers like this...
Everyone is so friendly and nice and there is never any tension due to on-line disagreements.
It's one of the reasons I enjoy them so much.
I'd like to attend as long as it doesn't turn into a Shadid lovefest.
Ed came to our last gathering and is an extremely nice, sharp and friendly guy.
But he'll also be just one of many people there and won't be featured in any way.
We are planning a trip back to OKC some time, not sure when but might have to try to make it.
I'll write on the work calendar to be off by 6. I was disappointed that I couldn't attend last year's get together.
And that really is the common element among almost everyone on this site and certainly the ones that care enough to meet up. That bond and common goal goes a long way, especially in what is a very superficial and light setting.
I've edited the original post on this thread to reflect more details.
Will soon post an RSVP poll/thread to get a somewhat accurate count.
I'm going to try to make it for this one. Sounds like a good time. I just don't want to be perceived as TOO ACTIVE of a civic participator... that would cut into my nap time. lol
I'll probably be there.
