Superb Owl Meetup
posted January 17, 2015 3:48 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun February 1 at 1:00 PM, Sibrax's House
13807 Southeast 28th Street, Vancouver, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
One room for board games, one room for football-watching, owl appreciation everywhere!
We got a chance to play Colt Express and Survive: Escape from Atlantis recently, and both were great, so we'll probably play at least those two. Football starts at 3:30.

There will be food (most likely chili, chips, and other assorted snacks), and beverages, but feel free to bring something extra if you'd like.

I wonder if I'd be able to find the appropriate beer for such an event?

That is some impressively generic beer!

Shall we say our place starting at 1pm?
posted by Sibrax at 7:59 AM on January 20, 2015

I will be there then. Even if no one else is!

Just.. you know. Hangin' out.

Owls are pretty superb, imho.

Hey now, no need to skulk! That makes four of us, plus the owl. It's a party!
posted by Sibrax at 4:39 PM on January 20, 2015

He's just looking for a reason to skulk. I'm constantly having to shoo him out of dark corners.

Let us know if he wakes up as a cockroach some morning.

Wait, I didn't know there'd be *football*.

Wait, I didn't know there'd be *football*.

As is the superb owl custom, I plan on assiduously ignoring it.

If no one's watching I'll turn it off. I wasn't sure which activity the "maybes" were interested in.

I think we should play a three-and-a-half hour long game of folded paper triangle football, maybe. We'll do two plays and then spend ten minutes trying to think of funny or audacious ways to endorse the various beverages and snacks we're holding, and then repeat that like thirty times.

That's a novel new usage of the concept of "ignoring".

I second the paper football idea.
We could also pick up a mini nerf football and play some arena living room football.

Fussball. Because it means foot ball.

A paper football mini-tournament does sound promising...
posted by Sibrax at 11:04 AM on January 24, 2015

Maybe we can watch a little bit of the Puppybowl? I don't think I've ever watched it.
posted by Secretariat at 9:36 AM on January 25, 2015

Sure! Looks like it also starts at 3.
posted by Sibrax at 4:03 PM on January 26, 2015

Any particular snack or beverage requests?
posted by janell at 4:51 PM on January 30, 2015

I think I'm bringing some sophisticated lemon bars, if I get around to making them. Someone showed me a recipe where they're extra tangy and salty.

Sorry, it's looking like we're a no on this! I have midterms this week, and mimo is prepping for a talk out of town. Superb some owls for us.
posted by curious nu at 2:16 PM on January 31, 2015

Sorry. Life got on top of me.
posted by mimo at 2:21 PM on January 31, 2015

Aww, sorry to hear that. We'll have another game day soon!
posted by Sibrax at 6:15 PM on January 31, 2015

If it's not too late, I'd like to join you guys

joooooin uuuuussss
posted by cortex at 8:11 PM on January 31, 2015

I can bring a collection of store bought chips and dips.
posted by mrzarquon at 8:13 PM on January 31, 2015

It's never too late!

If the game is over and everyone else has left, that might be too late.
posted by Sibrax at 10:16 PM on January 31, 2015

I'll be bringing some store bought beer.

I made some cocoa-y cookies. They are in flower shapes to show my enthusiasm for the football. I don't have an owl cookie cutter, alas.
posted by janell at 11:43 AM on February 1, 2015

I also have girl scout cookies, so I'm bringing those.
posted by mrzarquon at 12:30 PM on February 1, 2015

We're running a little bit late, be there somewhere between 1:30 and 2:00!
posted by cortex at 12:53 PM on February 1, 2015

This will be my first MeFi meetup, if you're ok with an eleventh hour RSVP'er. I'm bringing snacks!
posted by little_dog_laughing at 1:54 PM on February 1, 2015

Woo, that was super fun. Thanks for having us out, Chris & Lucy; great to meet you, little_dog_laughing, hope we see you at future meetups.
posted by cortex at 8:18 PM on February 1, 2015

Whoops, I forgot to keep an eye on the thread! Thanks for coming out, everybody! Glad you could make it, little_dog_laughing.
posted by Sibrax at 8:31 PM on February 1, 2015

Thanks for having us, it was a good time.

I just found this article about that super bowl golden lion- turns out he was from Scappoose, Oregon!
