DFW - First Friday Beer Meets

While mulling over our common desire to have more beer meets in the DFW area, I had a lightbulb moment the other day:

We could have a beer meet on the First Friday of each month, with a rotation of various venues from north, east, south, and west of DFW airport.

For example, the first Friday in March is the 2nd (this Friday), and we could have a meet somewhere north of the airport (since the last one was west of it, at Flips in Grapevine) -- maybe something in Lewisville or Frisco. Then the first Friday of April, we could eat somewhere east, in Addison or Dallas. (*Not saying that we have to have one this Friday in particular -- just an example.*)

The specific venue could be up for suggestion, though I think the geographic orientation (N/E/S/W) would help narrow it down. That way everyone from the metroplex could make it to a meet every now and then.

Whaddaya think, inmates?

Even though I'm a n00b, I'll bite...

Sounds equitable enough in location selection, you seem to have thought it out pretty good so I don't see why anyone would object. Besides, we're talking about hanging out and drinking beer...

Unless, of course, CodyY swoops in and vetos it with a two-word post for some reason!

It'll work.

I'm out for this Friday though, so having it at the Saucer is prohibited.

Sure, Come on, as long as you don't mind hanging out with a bunch of dumbasses that have been known to do 100+ on knobbies.


All kiding aside, everyones welcome.

I don't know of any places south of The Bridge, but if no one else suggests anywhere, I can suggest some up here in Denton.
