It's time to throw the North Brooklynites a bone! Barcade. Come on down! Or...up. Whichever.

Wish I could make it down for this if only to have a drink with Decani ... since I can't get him to return to Vermont, the bastard.

Not to hijack this thread, but I'd like to suggest folks check out my cousin-in-law (turtlegirl's cousin), Esther's place, The West, which is across the street from Barcade. Potomac Avenue met her at the meetup were we met a few years back.

If I come to this, I'll probably show up before 8 and leave early, FYI.

Hey terrapin, you know I'll get back there one day... it's been a crazy couple of years. Anyway, thought it'd be a shame not to wander along to Barcade as I'm in town at the moment and just along the street a bit on South 4th.

Hey terrapin! I'll definitely check that place out!

Decani, stop in and say hi to Esther. You had dinner with her many years ago when we met up with her, stynxno and ThePinkSuperhero.

And PLEASE come visit us soon.

Decanis going? Man. Maybe I'll come by and say something controversial and then walk out! Just joshing ya mate. Hope you make it.

Terrapin, I do remember her I think! As much as I remember anything that happened before yesterday.

Noooo not controversial, Potomac! I *hate* controversy!

IDK, mefi meetups get pretty controversial, what with potomac avenue being a dirty manhattanite and all.

Oh God, we're allowing the Bridge and Tunnel crowd in? Eww.
posted by Decani at 7:25 AM on July 24, 2012


Your a tunnel.

OMG! They even write "your" instead of "you're"! Is there nothing that can be done?
posted by Decani at 7:49 AM on July 24, 2012


Are you taking the piss? Should I just bring the bucket I have in the freezer or do you prefer it fresh? Am I not understanding that idiom?
posted by Potomac Avenue at 8:20 AM on July 24, 2012


No need, mate. They probably serve Bud at Barcade. :-)
posted by Decani at 8:56 AM on July 24, 2012


So... what time are people planning on showing up? I need to decide whether to eat before, during, after or possibly all three.
posted by Decani at 7:09 PM on July 24, 2012


I will likely get there before 7 and find some take-out food nearby (and deride Brooklyn Barcade for not having bar food like the Jersey City Barcade does. Nutella + bacon, for the win!).

any chance yall will still be going at like 10? i'm going to westchester for the evening :C
posted by Potomac Avenue at 11:46 AM on July 25, 2012


I will still be there

Maybe playing Galaga all by myself, but I will still be there

So I am definitely coming, but as I stated upthread, I will likely get there before 8 (most likely 7) and may leave early.
posted by bookwibble at 2:54 PM on July 25, 2012


Alrighty, I guess I'm going to wander over at around 6:30 or so and see if I'm still crap at Donkey Kong.

The flag has been planted, we are at the table on the left, by the defunct Jungle Hunt game.
posted by oh yeah! at 3:50 PM on July 25, 2012


I'm going to be there closer to 8. See y'all soon!

Hi, out of towner in need of a little break. If I come by, can somebody make sure I find you guys and don't stand around nervously trying to find the Internet? All tips welcome.

Walk to the back we're on the left there are 6 of us! At a table?
posted by the young rope-rider at 5:18 PM on July 25, 2012


Fun! Thanks folks.

I was the old geezer in the room, but the young whippersnappers made me feel very welcome and only kicked my stick away twice. So very kind.
posted by Decani at 7:25 PM on July 25, 2012


It was nice to meet you & kick your stick away, Decani!
