New Job, New Town, No Time

A wise man once said to me,

There are only 3 kinds of friends: Moving friends, Airport friends, and Beer friends.  And the latter is debatable.

Truer words have ne’er been spoken.  And though I’ve said it before, I consider the members of the Paleoposse to be my friends… MOVING friends, even.

So…speaking of moving… are you guys free Saturday?

It’s not that far.  See? Only 2 cm on the map!


OK, OK, don’t get all nervous, I’m kidding.  Luckily, I already managed the move (with the help of a few friends – paid in beer and pizza), and am about to start my 3rd week of work at my new job in Jacksonville, FL.  Incidentally, you may have noticed that I haven’t made any blog posts in 3 weeks.  COINCIDENCE?

Today I would just like to send a shout out to any PaleoPosse members in North Florida (and even Georgia & Alabama), and see if anyone would be interested in a meet-up! Depending on where everyone is hailing from, we could meet in Jacksonville, Gainesville, or Savanna.

Shoot me an email at and let’s do this!

    Hi Guys,
    If you haven’t been to Gainesville, be sure to check out Stubbies & Steins. I haven’t been since they expanded, but they have hundreds of beers from all over the world. I am sure you can entertain yourselves for several hours (or days!). Congrats on the new job! North central Florida can’t be beat (in terms of weather AND science nerds).

      Sweet! Would you be able to meetup there sometime next month?

      Ryan! What days are you going to be in Gainesville?

        Paleo conference plus a few days the museum collecting. Should have evenings free during collection days.

    Stubbies is alright. It’s a bit overpriced. Tall Paul’s pub is cheaper, it doesn’t have the bottle selection but it has about 25 beers on tap.


  1. Science… sort of Florida Meetup of 2011! | Paleocave Blog - 29 April, 2011

    […] Jacob was feeling lonely and said we should do some sort of meetup down south so he can make friends and leave the house for something other than work. I said sure and offered to drive all way down to Florida so provide double the incentive for all the Paleoposse to come out for a night of drinks, science, and burgeoning friendships. Would you like some details? You can have them! […]
