Well our last adventure did not turn out so well, but the Taters are ready to brave a new venue. Let's try Phoenix Landing this week, on Wednesday. Geeks Who Drink Trivia starts at 7:30, so aim to arrive by 7.

Trick or Tater!

What happened last time?

I vote "The Fall of the House of Tater" because it ends in "er" like the original and "The Taters Have Eyes" because potatoes have eyes.

Nothing "happened" per se... I mean, that sounds so dramatic. It's only that the sound system was completely broken so trivia started an hour late, the TJ had to yell all the questions, and the beer selection was terrible. Other than that, it went fine.

The bar also couldn't provide decent service, so it took forever to get food, drinks, waitress, and they were unable to close the open window we were sitting in.

It was also hard to even get enough sets for everybody at first, and we had a smaller group.

On the plus side the food was good. But yeah, otherwise it was a bit of a clusterfuck.

I didn't even think the food was good, my veggies tasted like they came straight from the freezer bag, and the steak tips were decidedly meh (and lukewarm by the time they got to us).

DiscourseMarker is on the disabled list tonight with a sprained foot, so we are back to 6 confirmed. Maybes, please let me know whether we should plan for one team or two.

We’re here and have a table by the door

Since I'll be a seventh, I think I'll sit this one out. I got home from CA after midnight last night, so some down time might be a good idea.

I can make it after all, running late -- didn't realise it started earlier, my apologies.
