hermitosis, you look a little thin. Maybe you should eat more.

Save me the effort of browsing and potentially being disappointed. Did anyone die at said meetup?

It's probably still going on. It's like 11pm right now, I just got home, and when I left there were like 10 people still there.

I love you, bingo.

Meetup summary:

Party at the Double Down- bacon martinis and ass juice were consumed.
Knoshing at Katz's Deli- pickles and Cel-Ray Soda.
Snacking at the BAMN! Automat- shaved ice and mac & cheese krokats.

So, basically, we're all fat pigs.

What can I say, Ryvar... that's hot.

Please tell me you didn't walk all the way up from Houston for BAMN. If you read the comments on the other post, I told you all not to go there.

hermitosis = Mint Sauce (UK MeFite)

I'll put down a marker for a NY meetup late Jan/early Feb. My last one nearly ended in Atlantic City but I'll be prepared this time...

We went there SPECIFICALLY to piss you off.

JonMC, are you a recovering Beastie Boy?

No, I'm a goy and I'm far too handsome.

Knoshing at Katz's Deli- pickles and Cel-Ray Soda.

And sandwiches large enough to feed a small country for a week.

Hey, the BBoys are handsome too! I wasn't saying you're not!

Much fun, all. The venue was just about perfect, and the turnout was suprisingly large--what, about 20 of us? My non-MetaFilter friend was quite impressed that so many folks would come out. Really--those who complain about how hard it is to meet people have no excuse if there's a meetup in their area.

I'm just sorry we had to leave early. We had an excellent dinner at Barolo, though I was feeling some rather umcomfortable after-effects from that fucking bacon martini; I think maybe the pork had been fermenting a bit too long.

Thanks, all, for showing us such a good time. Seriously--you must let me know if you come to DC.

Yay, we loved meeting you, too!

Uh, yea, except for the freakin' porn on the TVs. Glad we tried it (and the mechanical pony was fun weeee), but now we never have to go again.

Yeah. Too much damn diversity in that place.

You know, drinking, viewing porn, and eating food dispensed from a machine perfectly describes my usual workday.

He's a cool guy! You should get him an account.

Nice meeting the two of you.

Apparently I, unknowingly, walked right past, without so much as a how-do-you-do. Oops.

I had a great night. I'm awaiting the rest of the pictures.

email me, piratebowling... I have something I want to send you, but you don't have any contact info!

Err....


Kidding aside, I had a good time, it was great meeting Messr. Moonpie and companions, and seeing the newlyweds, and so forth :) And yes, the porn was freaking disturbing, but otherwise it was a great place.

The ass juice was, unfortunately, rather underwhelming, but after a whiff of the bacon martini, I'm glad I made the choice I did.

Well they're some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown
when there's no one around

*scrubs brain to get that image out of his head*

And yet I still find myself wondering who put that video together. Was it all some GWAR...thing...or was it actually a bunch of discrete clips that some punk film student sewed together?

I know that the midget-in-a-suitcase was from a fairly well known internet porn star.

It's OK, milarepa. We had lunch in your honor on the way out of town.
