God, you can't just ask someone if they want a beard.

Excuse me, do you have a fatal illness? No? Debilitating...? Just an AMAZING BEARD? Oh, okay.

(Just so everyone knows, that is sort of an in-joke and not a serious question about fatal/debilitating illnesses!)

Will someone there be my beard?

Lazaruslong, we meet up at a bar that has great beer and free popcorn and we talk and hang out. There's often a mix of regulars, newcomers, out-of-towners, and the occasional non-mefite. It happens weekly-ish. You can wander in late or come on time.

Cool! I am not from NYC so I wasn't actually sure if the beard thing was a joke or not, haha. See y'all on Wednesday!

Ha! We really don't have (m)any strange beard rituals planned.

See you then!

I thought that position was taken?

overhauser, for you

The ball and chain has an actual beard made of hair, attached to his person, that will destroy, I repeat destroy, any naysayers/satirists/derelicts/etc.

Unfortunately, he never goes to Brooklyn because he has a special hatred (as a child of survivors) for a rival hasidic group there. For several such groups, actually. So you will have to take my word for it.

Seriously, though, young rope-rider, I hope to see you again eventually!

I am excited to meet y'all tonight, but I trimmed my beard before coming over from Philly and fear it may not be up to scratch, so to speak.

But I'll be there!

My beard will be there. I may be as well.

You are all the beardliest in spirit. I commend you.

Lost track of time, on my way!

I'm logging in to change my attending status. I have work to do and need to be chipper for the AM tomorrow. The double whammy. I am saddened I won't see your smiling, bearded faces. Even your scowling, bearded faces I will miss.

I'm all alone.

good to see you guys last night, and wonderful to meet you, lazaruslong!

Yay! Thanks so much for such a fun time in Brooklyn, y'all, and for being so kind and welcoming to my non-Metafilter buddy.

Apologies if my fanboi squeegies got annoying at any point. =D

After the meetup, I ended up meeting a friend at the bar that I had not seen in 12 years, and we sat in the corner amid the rubble of popcorn kernels and empty glasses until the bar closed at 4am. Just a lovely time all around.

Hope to see you all again soon.

It was great fun to meet you! I am glad you brought your friend, and I'm glad you had such a great time with your friend.

See you again soon!
