Default North Carolina (raleigh/durham area) lunch gathering

BeeGee and I are planning to get together for lunch in the RTP area on M,W, or F during the week of Jan 30th through Feb 3rd.

I sent a PM to Kai to see if he was interested in meeting up with us, but we're not sure if there are any other HBers in the area that might also be available one of those days.

If you live in the area and can swing a lunch meeting in or near the RTP area, let us know!

Looking at my calendar of meetings, it looks like my preference for day-of-week would be (best listed first): Wednesday, Monday, then Friday.

I can't make it on Tu or Th b/c of carpooling issues (no car for me on those days). I have a meeting on Monday at 2pm, so that could work. However, I have a 1pm meeting on Friday so that would be cutting it pretty short for me.

Any of those days should work for me if nothing comes up.

I didn't even notice the PM.

But yes, I'm interested. Those days would work for me.

Do you guys already have an idea where you want to go. I don't know to many places that would be good for lunch and that have decent beer on tap.

Except for Mr Dunderbak's at the Crabtree Mall. It's a decent place whith a good selection of bottled beer as well as beer on tap, but it's in a Mall which is somewhat of a turn-off for me.

I didn't have anywhere specific in mind as yet...where is everybody located? I'm in RTP on weekdays, but could slip into Raleigh for lunch.

I work in Cary, off Weston Pkw. This is pretty close to RTP and Raleigh.

I'm pretty much right at the intersection of I-40 and NC-55, but I did not have any specific place in mind. Also, I've only lived here for 6 months and don't know the area very well, so I wouldn't even be able to suggest a place to be honest.

So it sound as if between RTP and cary would be best. I would have to see what the options are.

In terms of a place with good beer pickings are pretty slim, although there are plenty of good lunch places otherwise. We could trek up to the James Joyce in Durham which is really only about 15 minutes from Walker and has a pretty good lunch and Irish beers on tap. There's an "Irish" bar on Airport Blvd but I wasn't all that impressed with it. If we punt on a wet lunch I know decent places.

I was thinking the same. It's just do damn hard to find places with good beer selection here and I don't want to trek all the way to Durham for lunch. This was much better up in NE when I still used to live there.
