Sun November 10 at 1:00 PM, The Board Room
1737 Connecticut Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
Yeah, November. Because all my weekends are booked until November, which is ridiculous, but anyway...who wants to get a game day in before the holidays? UPDATE: Confirmed for November 10
The Board Room is 21+ but may be willing to make exceptions if we ask nicely in advance, so please let me know if you're under 21 and would like to attend.

I'm available all of these days. Which I know is a great help in narrowing things down.

The 10th is my birthday, so it can be an extra-special celebration of the joy that is me.

I was just coming here to see if there's interest in a proposed meet-up of a buy a fellow furloughed Mefite a drink nature (those of us who are lucky enough to still get a paycheck can spring for some beers for those who might be on a tighter budget). However, hopefully this will all be but a distant memory by November.

I'd vote for the 9th or 10th as I have family coming to town on the 23rd.

Let's do this. I have Go, and a baby who puts Go stones in her mouth.

9th or 10th would be good for me! I'd love to finally make it to one of these.

The 10th would work for me. I know Ill need a family break anyway, Im picking up girl scout cookies on the 9th. So there may even be cookies too.

And I have a copy of Smashup which could be fun.

Any of the days are fine for me. Let's celebrate baconaut's birthday!

Looks like we have consensus around the baconaut's birthday edition of game day, so let's do it!

I always assumed Board Room provided the board games.

I may be available (darned baby) and we have a Cards Against Humanity set which is always fun if you're as awful a person as me.

We will try to make it! Hopefully we won't be so effing late this time.

Board Room has board games, yes. They have Cards Against Humanity, even, but their sets are at least a little scrambled -- at least one box has two "eight ounces of sweet Mexican black tar heroin" cards, for instance. So bringing games is not required, but is certainly welcome!

Sixteen ounces of sweet Mexican black tar heroin? Count me in!

I can bring Cards Against Humanity, Bananagrams, Munchkin and/or Munchkin Cthulhu if any of those interest anyone.

And also as an FYI for people that haven't been there before, the bar has no kitchen. As a result, you can bring in whatever food you want.

I have Candy Land!

I have Candy Land!

Zennie, I say this with love and respect: Candy Land is possibly the worst game ever.
posted by Mrs. Pterodactyl at 5:14 AM on November 5, 2013

Hamburger Land then?
posted by zennie at 7:43 PM on November 5, 2013

Hamburger Land is now open next door to the Board Room. It's not what the sign says, but it's what they mean.

We do have a reservation, and I asked for the tables behind the bar on the first floor. If we're elsewhere, I'll update in-thread on Sunday.

I'll be a little on the late side due to post-pre-birthday-celebration recovery.
posted by baconaut at 8:56 AM on November 10, 2013

We are packing up to go soon. See you all in a bit!
posted by anotherpanacea at 8:57 AM on November 10, 2013

Schedule all awry. Will be there, but closer to 2.
posted by HonoriaGlossop at 9:51 AM on November 10, 2013

Got delayed with other things - I'm guessing people have mostly taken off by now? Hope to make it to the next one!

It was so nice to see everyone who was able to make it! I really do love MeFi meetups.
posted by Mrs. Pterodactyl at 9:15 AM on November 11, 2013

Good times, everyone! Looking forward to the next one.
