Wed August 8 at 7:15 PM, Barcade

It is at Barcade which is a bar and an arcade. Together. As one. It's all very romantic.

I don't like romance, so I'm a Maybe.

Zaxxon flattened my village and Q-Bert talks dirty to me. Maybe.

Trying to figure out Wednesday plans... Anyone going to this?
posted by huskerdont at 8:20 AM on August 7, 2012


Yes. NYC mefites just don't like to commit.

I will come if someone will walk with me to Momofuku Milk Bar before or afterwards so I can get a spiked milkshake.

You drive a hard bargain, mlle valentine.

I always want to go but can't bring myself to drink milkshake and rum alone :(

okay well you don't have to. none of us has to drink milkshake and rum alone ever again. it's the dawn of a new era.

Dry-hopped Chelsea Hop Angel on cask! I'M IN
posted by Greg Nog at 7:05 PM on August 7, 2012


Will they have that tomorrow, though? They usually post the taps of the current day on their blog.

It might matter. I might go to this? I don't know?

Pacific Standard has had Hop Angel on cask for a few weeks now. We should do a meetup there one of these days.

I might show - would be my first MeFi meetup (proper).

I keep meaning to go there, but have never been! Also, while I've had the Hop Angel before, and like it a lot, I don't believe I've ever had it with extra dry-hopping. Really, I'm just a sucker for the addition of more hop aroma to anything.

I will likely attend this as long as my workout prior doesn't take too long. Nothing like a house wine to take the edge off doing squats and bench press for the first time in 3 months.

My arms are so sore.

Yay to you coming, boo to sore muscles, yay to working out...summary: yay!
posted by the young rope-rider at 11:26 AM on August 8, 2012


Imma try! I live right there, so it would be ridiculous for me not to join. However, work's a bitch, so we shall see. :)

WORK'S A BITCH

are there going to be poffins at this meetup or not
posted by elizardbits at 1:32 PM on August 8, 2012


I would literally make poffins if it meant you would commit to coming

I've actually been eyeing various recipes with a mind toward making sour, dry, sweet, and bitter ones

YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT WEEKNIGHTS DUDE

posted by elizardbits at 1:42 PM on August 8, 2012


I'm coming just for the proof they let nerds into Barcade.

And also to find out wtf a poffin is.

LIKE A G-G-G-GHOST
posted by Greg Nog at 4:17 PM on August 8, 2012


Good, because I just realized I have no idea how to recognize a meetup in action.
posted by Sara C. at 4:23 PM on August 8, 2012


Wil you guys be there round 830-9? I just finished working out and need to purge my entire body of sweat. I want to see everyone!
posted by zoomorphic at 4:26 PM on August 8, 2012


Am I the only one here?
posted by 1970s Antihero at 4:26 PM on August 8, 2012


No, I'm here and have no idea how to recognize anyone. A dude in a white Shirt and pale grey shorts just came in, too, do was that Greg nog or what?? Am wearing neon green shorts and sitting at the bar, if that helps anyone?
posted by Sara C. at 4:30 PM on August 8, 2012


Ah, fuck it. I'm going to go get my ass kicked at frogger. If anyone wants to point and laugh, feel free to come on over.
posted by Sara C. at 4:35 PM on August 8, 2012


We're at the bench in the back. Mlle Valentine and milkweed are here now, too.

I'm on my way and will be sad if everyone bails before I get there so you best not incur my wrath
posted by zoomorphic at 5:17 PM on August 8, 2012

posted by sweetkid at 5:44 PM on August 8, 2012

yay everyone :) those bob ross guys were cocky as hell
posted by the young rope-rider at 10:02 PM on August 8, 2012


I think the painting class they took was an OKCupid event, so they were probably running high on the fumes of minglin' singles!

Had a good time yesterday, Bob Ross crew included. Great meeting y'all.
