I feel like Bojangles deserves a spot. Beasley's Honey and Waffles also, but I don't know if you can get biscuits to go from there. [more]

oceanjesse: I think the biscuit tour could work if we delegated biscuit gathering by geography, then convened at a central biscuit consumption location/base. That's genius, and also sounds like the origin story for a biscuit-focused supervillain. "Yes, my little biscuitty minions, go forth and bring me the best biscuits from all the land! Once I have them gathered together here in my secret biscuit lair, I shall combine their buttery powers for eeveel! Bwah ha ha!" [more]

Yes, tons of fun. I liked Research Monkey's suggestion of a potluck meetup and I'm still thinking of how best to arrange a Great Triangle Biscuit Tour. [more]

There is also a good amount of (non-parallel) on-street parking at the south end of Moore Square and a surface lot just south of that behind City Market, if parking garages are part of the anxiety. [more]

sockermom: I'm planning on being there but my social anxiety and parking anxiety have both stopped me from attending other Mefitups in the past, so we will see if I can handle it. :) I can tell you that I was very anxious about my first MeFi Meetup as well, but the Triangle crowd is really cool and laid back. It's totally fine to just kind of sit at the table and listen for a while if you don't want to be part of the conversation. As for parking, there are a bunch of easy options in the area. If you let me know where you will be coming from I can help walk you through the route. And we will miss you leesh! Feel better! [more]
