Hi Detroit Meet up gang! The reservation is under "Stage 32" - go figure. ;) See ya then.

I'd be interested.
Well, that makes four of us! We could meet for coffee in Royal Oak and have a great time!
If like to try to make it
OK, date/time? I have some wiggle room with time, but weekends are probably best. Early morning coffee or late night glass of wine?
Sounds good, at least until the busy time starts.
There's a Granite City Brewery on Big Beaver in Troy - easy parking. (I really like easy parking!) How about April 12, 8pm. If somebody has a better venue, let me know. Or I will just be there and anyone who wants to be there, well, be there!
What about Bert's in Detroit's Eastern Market District 2727 Russell? Great live entertainment on Monday nights
Never been there. Sounds fun. How's the parking?
I could do a monday easier then Saturday. 12th I'm filming.
Monday evening or Saturday works. Granite City sounds like an easier place to talk.
I was just thinking that....
I probably wouldn't be able to make a weekend day.
Just saw this, I'm interested!
Count me in!
Shall it be a Monday that we meet then?
Alright then, if it's OK with everyone, Monday night it will be. I hear the craft beer at Granite City is pretty good and it may be easier to talk as well as park (free)! Would sometime after 7 pm work for everyone? I think Monday will also be easier to get a large table - might be necessary to just call and reserve in case this turns out to be a large group. Granite City is located on Big Beaver (16 Mile Rd.) off of I-75. Easy access. Does this work for everyone ? Now, April 14 or 21?
Either works, but 21st marginally better.
Sounds good to me. I get off work at 7:15 and I am near there.
If either day works, how does the 14th look? 7ish at Granite City, Troy. I am really looking forward to meeting everyone! So, shall we bring scripts, business cards, info on new projects, previous projects, crazy fun new ideas, and good stories to share....
Parking at Bert's is great plus free.
Will have to pass on this one. My schedule was more chaotic than initially foretold.
Understood that not everyone can make it this time (maybe next time, another place) and maybe someone could start a MeetUp group or we could join one already in existence (there are at least 3 involving acting, film). But, for now, I will be at Granite City, Apr. 14, 7ish, and see who turns up. :)
Picked up a last minute booking, will try to be there by 8ish.
Corinne, where you there? Got there about 8:15, didn't see anyone at the tables they had set aside for us.
Yes, three of us were there. But they moved us to the back ( and forgot about us) and although the beer was good, the service was less than stellar. I am so sorry we missed you!!!!! We had a great discussion about reviving screenplays and what everyone was doing. Next time, my rec is someplace smaller where we can see people coming in the door, less noisy. But we did decide to meetup again. It was good to get the creative juices flowing! So, let's try again! And if you just want to meet for coffee, let me know. Again, so sorry we missed you!!!
Hi everyone - sorry I couldn't make it. Got a last minute deadline that tied me up. Please keep me in the loop for the next meet up. Sounds like I missed a great conversation! - Angela
Where were you? I was at Bert's. Right at the door.
I asked for Stage 32 at the desk, took me to a group of tables near the restrooms, seating for 6. Next time we all need some identifying hat or something!
Ugh....I started this post and totally lost track. I missed it!! Poop! Let's try for another one, maybe in May? I need to check back here more often.
I'd be interested in trying for another meetup in May. My schedule is still chaotic, but opens up after this week quite a bit.
I'm interested, but it depends on the day and time. Any chance it could take place somewhere west of Detroit, closer to Ann Arbor?
Sounds like a fun idea. I'll keep my eyes open for news of this.
I think we could meet in different locations - anybody have a studio??? a theatre???? even a park in the summer??? and there's always Panera's....
Has this meeting taken place yet? I'm interested, but would prefer something farther west of Detroit, like Ann Arbor, if possible. Either way, I'd like to know when & where and what the meeting agenda will be.
I'd be interested too, i have a lot of things in the fire right now so we have to get a date set.
Thread Necromancy, Rise from the Grave! So, is there any interest in this anymore? I have a good deal of free time coming up in the middle of this month (minus the 48 hour film project).
Ha! Your spell worked and the post is risen!! Praise cheeses! SO sorry I dropped the ball on this after my initial post so long ago. Bizarro life changes - divorce, moving, etc. Excuses aside, let me offer a couple of dates - August 16, 23 or August 30. Depending on where folks are coming from, we'll try to find a mutually agreeable location. If there are a lot of Ann Arbor peeps, maybe a Plymouth location? Interested? Discuss....
I'd be all for Plymouth location. My boss quit at work and schedule is getting mixed around, but hopefully I'll be good for one of those dates.
Great, Shane! Let's see what other interested parties chime in. Thanks.
I'm in, specially if west of Telegraph.
Great, Nick. Let me see who else chimes in and we'll make a plan. Thanks!
OK, I can drive - West of Telegraph no problem - where, when?
Ok. Let's do August 16 at Claddagh Irish Pub in Livonia. It's on Haggerty just north of 6 mile. Seems somewhat central since we're all spread out quite a bit. whadya say? What time is good for people? 7ish?
Works for me, I'm flexible on time. Probably need some way to identify each other tho. The last one we attempted in Troy kinda fell apart, but I'm pretty sure there were some folks there. We just didn't know who, cuz the restaurant moved the reservations.
Great! I will be there! I think all we'll need is a tabletop tent card or 2 - with 32 written on it - large font - maybe in red...
So, Big Stage 32 cards? Sounds legit. And Irish pub 16th at 7pm sounds good to me.
Great!! I will make signs, place cards, wear a hat with a flashing light - whatever it takes. I promise, I'll make it easy to find us. Looking forward, everyone! Spread the word. :)
I'll be there! Looking forward to meeting all of you in person.
Giving this a quick bump before the weekend. Hopefully everyone can make it despite the Michigan Monsoon of 2014.
Yep yep!! We shall prevail!! I made the reservation under "Stage 32". Looking forward to meeting you all Saturday. :)
Had a good time at the meetup. Here's hoping more people can make it out next time!
Big shout out to Tracey for arranging the meetup tonite! Fun!
Absolutely! Have to do this again! Great discussions with some very interesting people and brainstormed some good ideas!
Was a pleasure to meet you folks! Let's def do it again, maybe in late fall.
Sorry I wasn't there - got a flat tire in Battle Creek...yesterday was a long day.
Sorry to hear it, Angela. That's awful! We'll have another one in the fall.
Hi Tracy - did you get photos? We'll feature it at our 3 year anniversary party: http://www.stage32.com/blog/Stage-32-Turns-3-Next-Month-Come-Celebrate-W...
Keep me posted. ITMT if you want to do one in West Detroit / Dearborn let me know I own a home here.
Figured this is worth sharing in case anyone missed it. https://www.stage32.com/lounge/stage_32_meetups/Ann-Arbor-Ypsilanti-Mich...
