Is this really 5?
posted by garlic at 8:37 PM on March 13, 2016

Yes. (This post was originally written as four, because I wasn't counting the first one because I wasn't there; make all the assumptions abut narcissism there that you want.)

Oof. I'm not ready to contemplate the next one.

I both love and hate that the URL will be forever wrongly enumerated.

Mike, to be fair, I've only been to two of them so far, so going by your numbering metric this really should be Bacon Bomb III. So now you're wrong twice.

In any event, Communism was only a red herring.

I guess part of being a grown up is that my life has become extremely predictable. For the most part all the relevant bits of my March 2017 are already set a year in advance.

Which means this would also be the appropriate time to mention that a year from now I'll almost certainly have GS cookies, so go ahead and put your orders in.

Dammit! I completely forgot about this year's. I guess I have to just put up with my arteries being too supple until next year.

Is this a regional meetup? Should it be?
posted by garlic at 6:41 AM on July 13, 2016

it's not but I'll make it one as soon as I have time to write up a more detailed description
posted by MCMikeNamara at 7:39 AM on July 13, 2016

Remember, they had serious trouble seating just us. I don't think we should widen the net.

Bella Donna, if we didn't give you enough advance notice on this meetup to book your travel, let us know what we should do better!

I predict snowpocalypse.
posted by crush-onastick at 7:10 PM on February 6, 2017 [2 favorites]

I know we're still a month out but since I'm the person who made the post, am I responsible for making the reservation? I'm going to say 'yes' but I still wanted to put this here so I didn't forget to ask.

I'm so hungry.

Almost final call for reservations -- if you're a Yes that's really a No, or a Maybe that's really a Yes, please update before tomorrow.

I am a yes, but if the reservation includes number of bacon bombs, don't include me in the people eating bacon bomb.
posted by crush-onastick at 4:33 PM on March 9, 2017

I continue to be a yes, and I call dibs on crush's bacon bomb.
posted by eamondaly at 6:22 PM on March 9, 2017

Oh! I will also not be eating bacon bomb (I'll have one bite just to keep my cabal membership active of course. i mean, if there was a cabal which there is not, and if there was theoretically some sort of initiation rite) if that is a factor in reserving.
posted by Fig at 7:22 AM on March 10, 2017 [3 favorites]

Perhaps Fig and I can share a ritual bite.
posted by crush-onastick at 1:30 PM on March 10, 2017 [3 favorites]

I'm a yes with a possible plus 1 but eat for only 1

Because of crush's expertly-predicted Snowpocalypse! , I am downgrading to a maybe. :( :(

Oh no! If only I had used my powers for good.

I'm out dammit. I appear to have artisanal locally sourced man-flu. I finally get my shit together and clear my schedule for this karaoke free event just around the corner from me and this happens. Enjoy your flu-free pig with cured pig.
posted by srboisvert at 7:59 AM on March 13, 2017

if eamondaly's coming, there's no guarantee any event is karaoke free. They are all karaoke optional (so far), and mostly karaoke free for stage 1.
posted by garlic at 2:26 PM on March 13, 2017 [3 favorites]

I'll likely be arriving quite early if anyone is in the area.
posted by phunniemee at 3:02 PM on March 13, 2017

Okay I also made some sort of karaoke response comment earlier today that apparently is lost to the ether/my imagination, but the other important detail was that Paddy Long's is still providing conflicting answers on whether or not they really take reservations (another annual tradition!) But the day guy was supposed to let the night guy know and they were going to save 3 tables for us in the back. So if you're there and there's reserved signs on the tables in the back, those are for us.

Also, I'm going to Holiday Club tonight afterwards if any non haters are interested.
