    There are 3 of us! You have no idea how weird this is. And maybe four of us shortly. Let’s meet for drinks.

    Wednesdays are always a good day for me but I can make other arrangements. I’m available after 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I can do St Paul, Minneapolis, surrounding areas, doesn’t matter to me.

    Then I will suggest a Wednesday after 4ish at Groveland Tap, depending on if @colaptesauratus is up for it.

    Sorry team, late to the party. I work on Wednesday afternoon/night. My next few weeks are pretty busy though irl so if you want to meet up without me this time that’s totally fine.

  • #1105

    I’d like to get together this week or next if that works @coryphella.

    @colaptesauratus let us know when would work for you. I can absolutely maneuver things around if given some notice. I think Megan is right that we need to pull together and disprove a few stereotypes about Minnesotans.

    I could do Friday evening or any time Saturday?

    If you two can make this or another Friday or Saturday work just let me know and count me in. I just may need to make arrangements on Friday but it’s doable. I’ll leave it to you two for now.

    OK I just realized – supposedly we are getting a big snowstorm Friday. Let’s say temporarily we’ll have a Twin Cities Lust meetup at Groveland Tap in Saint Paul on Friday at 4:30, pending weather.

    Two questions.
    1. Have any of you tried any escape rooms.
    2. Who would be willing to give it a try?

  • #1170
     Megan 
    Participant

    I haven’t, and the reason why is because they usually require a number of people that is greater than I have in a group, which means I have to be around people I don’t know and have no reason to know. I’d be completely up for it if an entire group could be made up of people I know or people I want to know. I have some social anxiety and issues around anyone else. My husband wants to write a book about them because he thinks they’re funny.

    Also…I’m about to go to a conference and there’s a workshop this year on escape room design!!

    @coryphella So this is the second time I’ve noticed you saying something intriguing about your professional life when I’m scanning the Activity feed and I just gotta ask, are you a set designer or professional theater person or something? Cause if so that is so cool πŸ™‚

      @maxzumstein – yes I do theater professionally as a lighting and media designer and am a college prof. I’m doing my 2nd scenic design right now.

    I have an extra ticket for the live presentation of the No Sleep Podcast (think old time horror drama radio) at the Cedar this Thursday if one of you is interested in it. Doors open at 7, starts at 7:30. I’ll be there in line before that.

    Hey @colaptesauratus, @ziegenbart, & @emar – I am up to my eyeballs in this one design so I haven’t been around much…but any thoughts on tomorrow? One of my students said “zero to twenty inches of snow” which is the least helpful thing ever. I figure I’ll check back in tomorrow afternoon to see if y’all want to meet up.

    @ziegenbart – I’m hesitant to commit this week because I’m so behind on work, and driving students to St. Louis next week. I don’t want to say “yes” and then have to back out because of work…did it last night to a friend actually. πŸ™

  • #1609
     Anonymous

    @coryphella No worries. Thanks for the heads up and travel safe. I’m starting a public meetup group to see if I can find other local people interested in the arts/theater and escape rooms and such. Not really Lust related but I hear escape rooms can be more fun with a group of people. There are lots of events I’d like to experience with like minded people. Going alone is ok, but not as fun as it could be.

    Oh, let me know if there are any projects your involved in that I could attend. I’d like to support your work. πŸ™‚

    I do want us to have a MSP-Lust meetup, with @colaptesauratus too, I just don’t want to have to back out. I get back on the 11th, maybe the week after that?

    I’ll be in Minneapolis until a little after 6 then free on Friday. Could do a drink on Saturday or a coffee if earlier is better. I’m open.

    Howdy everyone. I’ll have a drink with anyone that wants to after 6 tomorrow. After happy hour, I’m going to find a nearby theater showing Get Out. I hear good things. Open to fellow attendees.

  • #1767

    @noahp @emar @colaptesauratus @coryphella What’s everyone’s general location around the cities and or willingness to travel a bit. I’d like to throw out an invite for coffee or what not but don’t know what might be a good location. I’m south of the cities but happy to drive up to at least Minneapolis or St Paul. Doesn’t have to be anything big. Like I said even a cup of coffee of a Sunday morning. But bigger events would absolutely be fun. (I know Megan is out of town for a bit).

    @noahp @emar @colaptesauratus @coryphella Anyone up for a drink? I’ve got time after 4 tomorrow, or possibly Friday/Sat. I liked that bar Megan suggested, the food was pretty good. I know there’s not a lot Lust related going on right now but we could still get together to put a face to the names.

    Oh, Megan, I hope you had a safe and fun trip with your students.

    I live at the south end of St. paul, by 35e. 4:00 is a little tough, since I usually leave work around 5. Sat might be a great idea, then we have a lot more options for an early happy hour or something.

    Hey everyone – I am trying desperately to come up for air – don’t wait for me though to set up a date, if I can make it I will. I’ve got 2 shows opening before mid April. St. Louis was great, I went to a session on escape room design and saw a whole bunch of theater students amazed that they were being told they could use their theater degrees to design games. I also jumped over everyone there to tell the presenters about Tension.

    I recently joined after a bit of silence on my end during the finale of Ascension, but I am also based in the Twin Cities – which is one of the reasons why it was incredibly difficult for me to actually attend Ascension in-person. Shit, I’m still trying to piece the story together from scattered first-hand accounts. One of the other reasons is that my epilepsy may have made it difficult for the cast to accommodate, so it’s not that I wasn’t able to attend for financial reasons either. Hopefully “Lust” brings me more opportunities to actually do something other than lurk and beg for scraps, yeah? πŸ˜›

    I may not be able to make it this Friday, but I would certainly be open to other dates – barring work on my degree or putting in my 1.5k words per day, of course.

    Just got this notification – but, as I have mentioned in my previous post, I will not be able to make this gathering. Future gatherings, I’ll have to check with my schedule – being a full-time student might cause conflicts within these next two months, but I certainly wish everyone the best with tonight’s gathering.

    And for future gatherings, I’m the guy in the black jacket w/ graphic t-shirt, black jeans, puffy-mushroom hair, and complicated glasses that haven’t been fixed/cleaned in ten years.

    Hey everyone. So our first get together was a great time and I’m reaching out for ideas for round two. A lot has been going on and maybe a conversation would help fill in some gasps. Thoughts, availability? Also a general call it to see who is still involved, I think we may have lost some, and for anyone else in the area that isn’t in our radar for invites.

    @ziegenbart et al – Unfortunately I am pretty much slammed until April 16…until I have focus & cueing times for the show after this one on my calendar I don’t know if free evenings exist at all but they might then…otherwise I’m free April 16. And am honestly counting the days until April 16.

  • #4921

    @coryphella. I understand. I’m actually kind of jealous of your busy schedule. Even if I don’t hear from anyone I’ll still put something on the calendar about once a week. I need to get out of the house sometimes. If nobody else is able to make it I can still use the time to catch up on forums or read my new Tension book.

    I apologize for not being as active, I temporarily forgot the password to this account and the password recovery function wasn’t willing to send it – or anything, for that matter – to my email. I’m busy until April 10th, although I would still need to know about any goings-on a few days in advance so I can work around it – rest assured, I am still willing to meet up.

    @coryphella I was able to get ahold of @voxchaotica on Twitter and he is good to go for the 10th. Apparently he forgot his password to the Lust forums and the reset function does not work. I’ll keep him informed via Twitter as we finalize plans. I recall that @noahp had mentioned the same thing about the password reset at our last meetup. Perhaps that’s why he’s not communicating with us but I don’t know his Twitter. I reached out to @colaptesauratus and received no response.

    Here’s a suggestion for @voxchaotica and @ziegenbart (and other Twin Cities people) – the show I’m working on, While You Were Out, opens at Red Eye Theater on Saturday night. It’s quasi-immersive-ish, the audience is seated but everyone wears headphones and hears characters’ inner thoughts. I can’t get you in for free (I can only get myself & my husband in on opening) but if you wanted to go, it’ll be interesting, and there’s a bar around the corner and we could meet there after to chat about Lust.

    @coryphella That sounds awesome! My first actual live event. Seeds planted months ago by our own @mike and @russell finally bearing fruit. I should be good to go, but I’ll know for sure by tomorrow and let you know. Thanks for the heads up!!

    @ziegenbart – well, it isn’t horror, but it is experimental theater…and hopefully by Saturday it will be good. πŸ™‚ Right now it’s very stoppy/starty and a work in progress.

    Wednesday, May 31st at around 4 or 5 PM should theoretically work, although I’ll most likely drop around a bit after five – I’ll need to buy one of my friends a burger or something to give me a lift, as I’ve had incredibly poor experiences with rideshare services in the past that I don’t trust anyone I don’t immediately know to give me a lift, and my doctor has yet to give me the “OK” to obtain a driver’s license even after 10 years of waiting. Same thing will apply if my iConfidant is located within the Twin Cities, I’ll make sure that’s a priority for ride planning – maybe I’ll buy my friends two burgers, or even make them myself; I’m currently in the process of testing ways to make burgers for the “Test Location” of my Restaurant, and I’m sure they would be thrilled to be part of the process.

    Once you hear what I sound like, however, you may still come to the conclusion that I am, indeed, a robot.
