Is there any interest in a North Milwaukee OC meet and greet?

Well the title tells it all.

I am on the North Side of Milwaukee, and want to know if any other members would be interested in a meet and greet on the first Saturday of each month 1pm to 3pm. I was thinking of a mirror of the Delavan meet.
The nearest Starbucks to me is at 7335 W Good Hope Rd. The location works well for me for many reasons.


This would be (as far as I know) the first of it’s kind IN the City of Milwaukee.

So what say you all? We must have other North Milwaukee members by now…?

A new meet in a new area is alway's a great idea...

If I read it right, you are thiniking of the same weekend of the Delavan meet. Yours first Sat. and Delavans the First Sunday... Same weekend..??? This would practially tie up an entire weekend which I think might cause some to attend one or the other...

Also, a lot of people work on Saturdays (some even on Sundays) so I am thinking a Sat. meet would also be affected by those that work. Maybe consider (as stated) an alternative weekend than the first weekend of the month. Also maybe a Sat. evening meet would enable those that work to attend. Every other Friday night @ Lissy's for the Fish Fry is real popular...(see dedicated sticky)...

Just my $0.02 which is exactly what the advise is worth....

Finally as we down south folks would have little bit of a drive to N. Milwaukee...

Where is that Car Pool Thread I started a while back... no answer required... its gotta be in here someplace...lol.... Maybe a sticky for future reference...

Location would be okay for me, I'm on the south side a little northwest from Southridge. I'm kinda with McX as far as maybe a different Sat. then right before the Delevan GTG. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd Saturday?

Okay, so it sounds like Saturday might not work, and the same week of the Delavan might not work.

So, how about the second Sunday of every month 1-3 ?
That would make this weekend the first one...
Again your call. Any day works for me...

I'm in.
But if I may throw out another option, how about meeting @ a Culver's?
(And/or choosing a weekday night?)
They like us, the prices are lower, & since it's getting into hot weather we can have cool treats.
(And yes, Steve, you can have a cheeseburger.)

There's a Culver's at 124th & Capitol, one a bit south of the baseball stadium, ....
Have to look on their webpage for others, but those 2 are both easily accessable by freeway.
Aha... 75th & Good Hope fits better with the "north side" theme.
Might even be able to see it from where we sit & sip this Sunday.

How about we do Starbuck's this Sun. afternoon (since that was the original idea), then maybe decide on a Culver's to, um, 'hit' in a week or two?

Sounds good to me. Starbucks 7335 W Good Hope Rd. 1-3pm this Sunday.
I might be just a little late, but I will try to make it by 1.
Ya know we have a Culvers on 76th also, so we could run over and get that cheeseburger.:D

And to think, the word "cheeseburger" has only been used in this thread twice...

Say, do you think I should call the Starbucks to give them a "heads up" that a small group is going to come on Sunday? It sounds like we have about 10 people so far. In the past, I have never called first...

the Buckians usually need more staff to accomodate us. bigger tip jar. drive through traffic will increase once the websters see us and blog that puppy out!

Are you sure that's a good location? I go to the soccer place close to it regularly and used to work close to there as well.

There is a Culver's on Port Washington road and Mequon road just north of the Milwaukee county line next to I-43.

Yes, we're on for Sunday afternoon,
and yes, I'd suggest letting the store know that we'll have a small group of friends meeting there. Don't have to mention the property most of us are likely to be carrying, but if you choose to I'd suggest mentioning that we enjoy meeting in Delavan & this store can call that store for a reference.

I would love to know why you think this location is bad for you...?
Well?
