I will actually be in New York on vacation this date. If I can manage to find my way there, I'll come!

Also, I don't have hot water right now so if anybody wants to let me shower in their shower tomorrow I will pay them $5.

Or should I post this in Jobs?

Update: I am still free of hot water! I have smudged my eyeliner and I'm wearing flannel, but the grunge look isn't convincing. Seriously though, if anyone wants to let me borrow their shower I would be beyond thrilled! I live in Kensington/Windsor Terrace and I am not a psycho killer.

Sorry to hear that, YRR. I'd lend you use of my shower if I didn't live in Jersey.

But I just want to say that this event is entered into my phone as "MeFites!: Brooklyn Birthday Beer Bonanza!".

Clearly I am excited for this event, even though the actual birthday is today, because no amount of macaroni and cheese can cause me to alliterate that much.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I am freshly showered and really, really excited. This is going to be epic. bookwibble, what a good choice of place! Did you do anything special for your birthday? I hope so!

So my friend got a root canal and seems desperate for human company, which means that I'm heading to his house this evening at around eight for a round of Settlers of Cataan while I encourage him to Keep Your Chin Up Buddy, Hey There Sport, It'll Get Better, Champ, Hey Look You Got The Longest Road, Tiger.

So: I will be at the meetup, but in a come-early-leave-early kind of way, likely from 7 to 8. See you all this evening!

Also someday I will remember that despite rhyming with Bataan, Catan is spelled with only two As, but TODAY IS NOT THAT SOMEDAY

I'm kind of looking at a similar "come early stay briefly" thing, although not for quite so altruistic a reason.

I always put that extra "a" in Catan too. Nice to know I'm not alone.

If all goes well I will be bringing a guest! If not I will be coming on time and leaving way, way late! :D

YRR, it was fantastic. And today will be even better, what with the day off, and the museum, and being waited on hand and foot at the MoMA's cafe. And that's not even counting the NBC Experience Store, or the bookstore I plan to go to!

But who's your +1?

Can't wait! Jerky!

Regrets!

But happy birthday! And I'll catch you all at the end of the summer.
posted by likeatoaster at 9:53 AM on May 16, 2012


My +1 is a mystery!

OH BOY

Looks like my friend's latest dentist session left him in SEVERE PAIN. This is bad for my friend, of course, but better for me not having a time-limit on beerdrinking! VIVA LA MOUTH PAIN

Alas, I am completely tied in knots with vacationy family stuff and I won't make it. Although I do realize that I'll regret this for the rest of my life.
posted by raisingsand at 3:22 PM on May 16, 2012


Later than 7, but will be there.

YAY PAIN

It's okay, raisingsand. There are other epic meetups! Have a good vacationy thing!

Also, 1970's antihero I hope you take lots of pictures and post them :D
posted by the young rope-rider at 3:41 PM on May 16, 2012


oh yeah! and I are here. We're inside, at the longish table in the center as you are entering.
posted by bookwibble at 4:01 PM on May 16, 2012


Yup, we're in the middle back!
posted by the young rope-rider at 4:18 PM on May 16, 2012


Later than I thought I'd be - I'm just leaving my place now...

I love you guys so, so much. Tonight was so much fun, and both I and my inevitable hangover thank you.

YAY! Thank you for being born :D
