Reader-Blogger Meetup in Seattle with NW Edible and MMM!

Regular readers know that my absolute favorite financial and frugality blogger is Mr. Money Mustache, he of the “early retirement through badassity” slogan. In fact, a few NW Edible readers have even told me that, once they started reading MMM, their outlook on finances, hope, freedom and even their future totally changed for the better.

So when Mr. Money Mustache told me he was going to be in Seattle for a few hours, and wondered if we might want to coordinate a reader-blogger meetup, I was on that shit like white on rice.


This is your opportunity, Dear Readers, to join both me and MMM for a happy hour beer and a casual Q&A.

Want to meet the people behind the blogs you read? Do you simultaneously have questions about growing veg and getting some hardcore frugality dialed in? I can’t imagine there will ever be a better opportunity than this.

Want to share your success, or be inspired by other people with similar goals? Want to meet other crazy folks just like you, with dirt under their nails and pride in their thrift store jeans? Your people will be there!

Want a good excuse to have a beer at four in the afternoon with other cool people? Who doesn’t? Come on down!

When? Monday Feb 25th, 4 pm – 6 pm

Where? Elliott Bay Brewing Company on Lake City Way in North Seattle. Map and directions here.

How Much? The Meetup is free, but do plan on ordering a drink or a bite to eat or something so the good servers at the restaurant aren’t running around filling up water glasses for no pay for two hours.

Transportation  & Parking? Elliott Bay Brewing has a parking lot. Carpooling is encouraged, and bike or bus riding is even better. This venue is about a mile off the Burke-Gilman.

RSVP: It would be fantastic to be able to give the venue a rough idea of how many people are showing up. So, if you know you are coming, leave a comment here saying so. If you didn’t RSVP but are able to come at the last minute, just show up! Don’t let a lack of RSVP’ing keep you away.

Questions? Ask in the comments.

Will I see you there?

    What would it take to have ya’ll hop in a car and come about 7 hours south and do this in Eugene instead? ;)

  2. WHAT?! OH MAN, I wish I could attend this. But I live in Denver, CO and won’t be able to fly to Seattle…. Would it be possible to have a similar meet up in Colorado since MMM lives in Longmont?!

  3. I am in. Much more exciting than seeing a Rock Star

  4. I’m so there! So, so there. (But only for the first hour since I have to head to an evening class.)

  5. FYI, that link to Mr. Money Mustache is broken…

  6. Matt Jarvis says:

    Ya, the MrMoneyMustache is kicking out an extra “http://” at the beginning of the link…

  7. This meetup sounds amazing! Too bad I live in the SF bay… I’m one of the people who discovered MMM via NW Edible, so I’m definitely excited to see what kind of ideas you guys come up with as you pick each others’ brains. :)

  8. I’ll be coming home from a mini-vacation, but hope to make it. As long as I don’t get in trouble for being fiscally irresponsible for taking a mini-vacation. :D

  9. I’ll be there! Wouldn’t miss it for anything. I can only stay for the first hour so I can get the boys to Cub Scouts :)

  10. Pavel Rozalski says:

    I will most likely be there, still need to coordinate kid pickup after school with this.

  11. As long as nothing crazy happens (like getting stuck at work) – I should be there.

  12. I will be there – how exciting. Probably will not show up until 5:00.

  13. FiveSigmas says:

    Nice! Hopefully I can get out of work early and join you guys.

  14. I’ll be there for the second hour! I’m a Mustachian with an interest in gardening, so I can’t think of a better event.

  15. Cam Solomon says:

    I’ll have to drag my little boy, but he never says no to LCW chocolate shake.

  16. Damn, I’m pretty much in the opposite corner of the United States. Too bad there isn’t a Dirty South Style NWE+MMM Meetup Spectacular any time soon. :(

  17. I’ll be there!!!

  18. Count me in. Its just down the road. So looking forward to meeting everyone.
    You picked a good weekend for snowboarding , my wife and I are heading up to snoqualmie pass today.

  19. +2 for Sarah and me, This sounds awesome!

  20. Husband is out of town, but I’m planning to join you. Thanks for arranging this!

  21. I would like to go. Look forward to this.

  22. Will try to make the last half hour.

  23. Ean Thompson says:

    I’ll be attending and possibly a coworker too.

  24. My gf and I are probably going to be driving up for Portland tomorrow to hang out.

  25. I’ll be there, possibly with one other person. Thanks for organizing!

  26. Will be there!

  27. For me it worked the other way: I learned about your blog by reading your comments in MMM’s blog. . I hope to meet all of you tomorrow!

  28. Sounds fun, I’ll be there.

  29. Shucks. I’m already meeting other out of towners this evening in the other direction, or I’d love to come.

  30. I’ll be there!

  31. This is a bit last-minute, but I will be there!

  32. I’m going to try to make it, but it will be near the tail end. Enough time for a beer, though ;)

  33. Great blog you have here.. It’s difficult to find high-quality writing like yours
    these days. I honestly appreciate individuals like
    you! Take care!!

  34. Asking questions are truly good thing if you are not
    understanding something totally, but this post provides fastidious
    understanding even.
