Bay Area Cafe people! We were talking about an April meetup before: is this a thing you want to do? Maybe April 14-15 weekend, or later. Known humans in this area include Nobi, me, Gregaman from Capcom, Karasu (if we can import him from Portland), Ktallguy (if I can trick him into flying up from LA), and Brandon (busy man, admittedly).

In the spirit of the Cafe, we could run a group evaluation/report on SF's Southtown Arcade or San Mateo's Game Center, and then kick back at Ramen Dojo, Yakitori/Ramen Kokko, or Izakaya Mai. For instance!

I wish... 14th and 15th I think are kind of crazy for me.

Edit: I hate how the US is so spread out sometimes!

One day, I will fly down there and threaten you all with my newly-acquired Elizabethan accent.
And you will cry, oh yes you will.

Hey Maou, it looks like the 14th and the 15th will be bad for me as well, despite looking good a month or so ago. Stupid clients and their projects! That shouldn't stop the SF locals from gathering of course, but if you folk felt like rescheduling, I could likely do maybe... the second week of May? Or anything later than that. I of course understand if no one else wants to reschedule.

Maybe someday in the distant future a pan-Cafe meetup could be arranged, but I'm not sure what would constitute the appropriate 'neutral ground'.

Karasu+Ktall: what about sometime in May (5/19-20)? The rest of us exist here pretty regularly, so it's pretty flexible.

Viscount Iggy, we will Skype you into our goofing off by conference call if we have to.

Woohoo! I'm up for a meetup just about any time (just give me a week's notice). Like Maou said, we live here, so our schedules are more flexible.

Nobi: if you want to catch up with Gregaman here this month, we can all talk about Asura's Wrath and game art for just about forever.

EDIT:Yeah, it looks practically ideal! As far as I can tell, that will work MUCH better! Let's wait and see if KTall agrees.

Of course with the mention of a huge meetup, I have visions of the beginning of Bloodsport where fighters from all over the world travel to the tournament location. Who among us is the Cafe's Jean-Claude Van Damme?

My personal thought is that Japan is the shoo-in for a Cafe mega-crossover match. I've been slowly making my way there for the better part of 25 years so maybe that would be enough to finally get there.

Kumite! Kumite! Kumite!

Sounds totally awesome, have fun!
KT, you're back in Cali now?


[edit] AGGHHH he's found me on Twitter! I don't think I'll be using it that much actually, I needed to get an account to try and make contact with a few people via DM (that's why my follow count is low, trying to keep it at minimum).

Hey Maou and the rest of the SF crew: so was May 19-20 decided as firm? I'm looking at buying tickets and wanted to make sure we had decided. Those dates work great for me, by the way.

EDIT: Also, if somebody can suggest a convenient part of town I should look at for a place to stay, that would be excellent.

HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER

It would be great if you want to come to town then and if Nobi is up. Roll call:

Nobinobita: _______
Maou: definitely in town
Gregaman (Capcom): definitely in town
Ktallguy (45 minute flight, how 'bout it?): _______
Exodus: doesn't hurt to ask!

Sorry I'm slow guys, I've had a rough few weeks. I'm actually in LA now! Hypothetically I could fly up that weekend but I'm gonna confirm it with work first. Maou, can you send me a reminder? Thanks :)

That is definitely A Thing I Can Do! Virgin America and Southwest run cheap flights all the time. Now we just need to hear what Nobi thinks...

As a chronic procrastinator, I had not quite gotten to buying my ticket yet.

Is there a weekend after that works for everyone? Maybe the following one, May 26-27? KT, let us know ASAP if that one looks better, and maybe we can lock it down from there if everyone else is in agreement too. I know I'm taking over the Maou-as-organizer role here, but I'm sure he won't mind.

May 26th-27th is better, I believe! And I think that Monday is a holiday? Not sure...

Organize away, it is a group idea~ I sure am not in town May 26-27, though! Blip Festival is happening in New York, you see. Others may be out since it is Memorial Day weekend. June weekends, besides 6/16, may work well if we're to get Ktall up here!

Aha, had forgotten Memorial Day etc! June 2-3 works for me, but after that I'm booked until late July since I have a rolling set of commitments through the rest of June and early July. I could make it to a European meetup in Prague during the first two weeks of July though! Does that work for everybody?

Well, it's not like I never make it down to LA or anything. Maybe we can all do a meetup there sometime! Fugetsu-Do is always a great time!

Well, Maou, Nobi, I assume May 19-20 works for you guys still? I'll go ahead and buy my ticket.

Sounds good to me! Nobi? We can do a group e-mail or twitter or some dumb thing to plan details later if we're all good, maybe grab a few other area people.

Wellll, it looks like I will be in SF on May 18-20, so I'm up for any sort of MMC meet up. Maou, I'll hit you up via email to discuss further.
