Detroit August Meet-up Confirmed - 8/16/14 at Claddagh in Livonia, 7pm

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

Avant Hall

I'd be interested.

Corinne Barringer

I'm interested!

Jay Pulk

I'm interested!

Corinne Barringer

Well, that makes four of us! We could meet for coffee in Royal Oak and have a great time!

Franklin Sollars

If like to try to make it

Corinne Barringer

OK, date/time? I have some wiggle room with time, but weekends are probably best. Early morning coffee or late night glass of wine?

Hodo

Sounds good, at least until the busy time starts.

Shane M Wheeler

Interested.

Corinne Barringer

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!

Hodo

What about Bert's in Detroit's Eastern Market District 2727 Russell? Great live entertainment on Monday nights

Corinne Barringer

Never been there. Sounds fun. How's the parking?

Shane M Wheeler

I could do a monday easier then Saturday. 12th I'm filming.

Franklin Sollars

Monday evening or Saturday works. Granite City sounds like an easier place to talk.

Corinne Barringer

I was just thinking that....

Jay Pulk

I probably wouldn't be able to make a weekend day.

Nick Hrycyk

Just saw this, I'm interested!

Angela Jeruzal

Count me in!

Franklin Sollars

Shall it be a Monday that we meet then?

Corinne Barringer

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?

Nick Hrycyk

Either works, but 21st marginally better.

Franklin Sollars

Sounds good to me. I get off work at 7:15 and I am near there.

Corinne Barringer

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....

Hodo

Parking at Bert's is great plus free.

Shane M Wheeler

Will have to pass on this one. My schedule was more chaotic than initially foretold.

Corinne Barringer

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. :)

Nick Hrycyk

Picked up a last minute booking, will try to be there by 8ish.

Nick Hrycyk

Corinne, where you there? Got there about 8:15, didn't see anyone at the tables they had set aside for us.

Corinne Barringer

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!!!

Angela Jeruzal

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

Hodo

Where were you? I was at Bert's. Right at the door.

Nick Hrycyk

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!

Tracy Kash

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.

Shane M Wheeler

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.

Brian G. Walsh

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?

Aida Munoz

Sounds like a fun idea. I'll keep my eyes open for news of this.

Corinne Barringer

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....

Brian G. Walsh

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.

Ron Rosenberry Chase

I'd be interested too, i have a lot of things in the fire right now so we have to get a date set.

Shane M Wheeler

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).

Tracy Kash

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....

Shane M Wheeler

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.

Tracy Kash

Great, Shane! Let's see what other interested parties chime in. Thanks.

Nick Hrycyk

I'm in, specially if west of Telegraph.

Tracy Kash

Great, Nick. Let me see who else chimes in and we'll make a plan. Thanks!

Corinne Barringer

OK, I can drive - West of Telegraph no problem - where, when?

Tracy Kash

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?

Nick Hrycyk

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.

Corinne Barringer

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...

Shane M Wheeler

So, Big Stage 32 cards? Sounds legit. And Irish pub 16th at 7pm sounds good to me.

Tracy Kash

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. :)

Angela Jeruzal

I'll be there! Looking forward to meeting all of you in person.

Shane M Wheeler

Giving this a quick bump before the weekend. Hopefully everyone can make it despite the Michigan Monsoon of 2014.

Tracy Kash

Yep yep!! We shall prevail!! I made the reservation under "Stage 32". Looking forward to meeting you all Saturday. :)

Shane M Wheeler

Had a good time at the meetup. Here's hoping more people can make it out next time!

Nick Hrycyk

Big shout out to Tracey for arranging the meetup tonite! Fun!

Corinne Barringer

Absolutely! Have to do this again! Great discussions with some very interesting people and brainstormed some good ideas!

Tracy Kash

Was a pleasure to meet you folks! Let's def do it again, maybe in late fall.

Angela Jeruzal

Sorry I wasn't there - got a flat tire in Battle Creek...yesterday was a long day.

Tracy Kash

Sorry to hear it, Angela. That's awful! We'll have another one in the fall.

Stage 32 Staff - Julie
