Six holes of putt-putt, ironic beer, kick-ass ladies: that's right New York, it's time to come to Brooklyn! Tomorrow, Saturday, July 15, we'll be meeting at the Bushwick Country Club at 4. It is accessible to both the L and G. Be there!Old thread.

Sadly, I will be celebrating pips' birthday down on the Jersey Shore and will be unable to attend. But hoist a Schlitz for me.

Well, as long as nomad comes, I'm happy. I don't need you, jon!

I'm glad you posted this. I just checked in to see if I needed to post a follow up. Will be there!

Gambling is illegal at Bushwick, sir, and I never slice.

It looks like I will probably be there briefly at the outset.

Be careful at the last hole at the BCC - it's a ball-eater.

I'll probably be there, unless I'm off swimming.

Bonza in excelsis. Idest and I will be there.

Dumb question, as it's a bar, is it 21+ only? or 18+ or what? I can't find anything on the site.

I'll be there.

I may actually make a meetup.

Brainy: it's Brooklyn, in midday. You could mug us all at the door and no one would notice.

If you are unobtrusive about being underage, I doubt you'll have a problem. If I'm wrong, perhaps we can just pretend you're someone's kid who just got dragged along to the meet.

Fun time, everyone.

Here's a link here to some pics from yesterday. Hope to have a youtube of the photobooth incident soon... just need new cam batteries. I enjoyed you all!

I had a great time. It was nice to be able to meet the faces and personalities behind the usernames.

Great time. Great bar. Great burgers. Great miniature golf.

I look forward to the next one.

Nice pics everyone. The photobooth was extra squishy & fun.
posted by dame at 5:46 AM on July 17, 2006


Awwww, you guys look cute in the photo booth.

Very squishy. I feel that I know my fellow-squishees intimately.
posted by idest at 7:02 AM on July 17, 2006


Intimacy is to be treasured in these days of widespread alienation & lonliness. And barbecue fires.

I don't need to go to meetups anymore...but you'll know where to find me - I'll be the one eating veggie dogs and sharking folks on miniature golf and Line-Up Four.

As long as they don't use the diagonal . . .

rather crafty, sibling of the opposite sex.

That was a good time. Apart from that one photo where I look like a stroke victim. It normally takes until at least 11:00 before that happens.

And Meatbomb - I apologise for the whole Ian Anderson thing. I just couldn't help myself. I was a big Tull fan, you know.

here are some more photos. This meetup was a blast!

Meatbomb? Ian Ansderson? WTF?

Everybody knows that Meatbomb is actually The Dude.

Oh, I actually did get a bunch of names on my back!

Damn. I thought that was an IPA-induced hallucination.

Five days too late, I see that I missed a meetup mere blocks away from me. How saddening.
