SoCal/San Diego #57 June 25th Gathering
radiolysis thought this was worth mentioning said1
I’d like to gauge interest in a few dates for a gathering in San Diego! We’re in central San Diego close to freeways so maybe some of the LA crew could make it too?

I’m thinking the 18th or 25th would be best for us.
In, so long as we can sort out the logistics with the kids. A night to themselves at my aunt’s in Oceanside and we can crash at your place?
May 21st or early June only for me.
SWMBO is still vetoing indoor, unmasked events. We are looking forward to a summer Pops concert or two with the group.
@davirom yes, we are too. I’ll get looking at group dates.
@davirom we were kinda planning an outdoor style event if the weather holds. If that changes things let me know! And I’ll post more details once we get a set date.
Heeeey i saw this by accident. I’m in Carlsbad + would like to participate. June18 is OPEN. And nearly the entire month is open… but not June 25. And not May 21… Fingers crossed that June 18 is selected!
@LorriCA yay!! Absolutely. I’ll put another tally next to June 18th.
June 18 we are highly likely to be out of town since it’s between school and camp for the kids. Very much hoping for the other options.
Thanks for letting me work through the scheduling. June 25 is gonna be the date. I’ll want to have more of these, so hopefully nobody misses out for too long. I’ll conjure a theme soon.
Hey alll! It’s May 27 (as i type this). Any progress on someone organizing a gathering somewhere in San Diego County?
@radiolysis said it’s the 25th a few posts up. Very much looking forward to it!
At this point, clearly it’s not going to be May 21st.
Hello -I cannot make it June 25. I have tickets to an event… Please add me to the list of folks to “message” for the next gathering… in July/Aug/Sept etc… hopefully I/we can attend. Thanks! Cheers, L
@LorriCA I absolutely will! I hope we have a group of lurkers from SD so we can make this a semi-regular thing.
I live in northern Los Angeles county and often go to our headquarters of my work in Carlsbad I’d be open to swinging by somewhere in June
@michaelvella @accs @bfibear @TechnoViking @hershelk I’ll tag a few more people who are local or kinda maybe sometimes here?
@radiolysis Want to tag the rest of the LA crew too?
@klezman I can probably do that. My yard isn’t as big as Cortot’s, though.
Holding that day to meet some of you.
@i8dacat @funnywontons @ScottRob30 @PLSemenza
@TimB @cortot @time2testit @buffaloroam @losthighwayz @ScottW58 @merrybill And the poke for the known people to me from the north. More the better!
And maybe @MarkDaSpark will still be a SoCal resident in June? We haven’t had a goodbye party yet, so it’s still possible.
@radiolysis unfortunately we won’t be around that weekend.
I can’t make June 25 but I am interested in future gatherings w this crew. Thanks.
Love seeing some traction for gatherings again. We’re still over-booked with family poop but watching this now.
Besides @accs, @scottw58, and @klezman anyone else want an address? Theme is simple: ‘enjoy some wine’.
@rjquillin had better be coming! This is in his back yard!
@radiolysis yes, I’d be interested in joining the June 25 get-together
Living with a still covid positive wife for the past 10 days, in the best interest for all, I’ll not be making an appearance.
@klezman @rjquillin I hope she gets well soon! Understandable as well. Here’s to next time!
We won’t be back in town till August. Hope I can hold or attend something then. Have fun.
@hershelk bummer! When we have something next I’ll of course let you know!
This is only a few days away! Yay!
Hope to see a lot of both old and new faces!
Bringing a bubbly and a Port
We’ll probably pick up some bread/cheese or some appetizers en route this afternoon.
@klezman sounds good. I have a massive cheese and veggie board going, so maybe some other sides/apps would be great. Dips, baguette, crackers. I was impressing the cashier to the grocery last night with the charcuterie board supplies
@klezman @radiolysis I’m bringing Arabic bread and hummus. Will also grab some olives and maybe another side spread. Plus a red
@klezman @Sekraan can’t wait!!
Toddler napped late. ETA around 630.
@klezman plenty of everything will remain!
@sekraan thanks for coming over! It was fantastic and we should do this again!!
Thanks for hosting! It was really nice to see y’all and we hope to do these more often, whether in LA or SD.
A lot of familiar friends in that pic.
@rjquillin Port. Rich but not overly sweet. Very nice.
phew, a hot day/evening for that as well…
@rjquillin the weather was perfect. A little sunny at the outset but once the sun went down it was awesome. And the bevy of rosé worked too!
POPSOCKETS! ROAD ROCKETS! SONNY CROCKETT! AWESOME!
@radiolysis @rjquillin Yup, exactly. The plethora of chilled wine was great at the start and the reds and Port were perfect for the rest of the evening.
I was also partial to the Port and maybe surprisingly given it was the last bottle we pulled, the Merlot.
@radiolysis @rjquillin I was a big fan of the Berserkers’ Cuvee Pinot. But everything was great. The port was another highlight.
