Whooppeee. Not 100% sure I'll make it, but I'll try.

Would love to go, but I'm performing that night.

MeFites, feel free to come by Club Midway at 9pm and see me in action! (There is a $10 cover, but you can get in for $8 -- see link above.)

P.S. It's only 5 blocks away.

Free Maxx Klaxon pins for all MeFites who come out! Certified to contain RFID tracking devices. For your own security, of course. The show also includes an educational segment about duct tape and mind control.

I'll stop hijacking now.

I would also like to attend my Second Meetup Ever, but I'm moving tomorrow, and that looks like it'll take up the entirety of my day.

Don't think I'm going to make it, kids, so have a drink for me.

Same here, amberglow- my visiting family and I weren't able to get up and leave the house until after 2 p.m.

Yeah, but when did it end? I just endured an epic 2 1/2 hour MTA odyssey (don't ask) but you guys didn't seem to be there anymore when I finally made it to the Johnsons? Anyway, happy new year and all that.

you're kidding, muckster--people usually stay for hours--i wonder what happened?
posted by amberglow at 5:58 PM on December 30, 2006


I literally just got back - we were on the left as you come in the place. Did you ask if we knew Mathowie?!

Damn! Sorry I missed you muckster--I wanted to have a further discussion about Perfume and Germany with you (I showed up at 9).

Aw, shit. That bites.

Next time, just ask around.

Or just look for the table with the totally hot women. That'll be us.

amberglow, pink, jonmc, and other staples were missed. But there were some good drink specials.

Aww, thanks, bingo. Glad you guys had some fun! Who all showed up? And what about pictures?

No pictures this time.

We decided that the shots of the midgets, whipped cream and the Doberman might get mathowie in some legal trouble.

Our guest armoured-ant and his buddy, dame and her boyfriend, CunningLinguist, bingo, brujita, kkokkodalk, muckster and jason's_planet.

I'm an idiot. Stumbled in over an hour late, seriously frazzled by my subway misadventure (3 boroughs!), so when I didn't see any of the familiar faces (dame, bingo, amberglow, jonmc), I guess I gave up too soon. I hate having missed y'all... we'll try again next year?
posted by muckster at 10:21 AM on December 31, 2006


Indeed, muckster!

Someone actually did take a cool phone picture of me wielding a miniature light sabre, and hopefully it will get emailed to me if not actually posted. :)

muckster, dame left a little early and I was sitting near the wall, facing away from the door. Must have been pretty crowded by the time you got there. Oh well.

Best meetup yet.
posted by dame at 2:18 PM on December 31, 2006


You're just saying that because I wasn't there, you hateful cow.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 2:35 PM on December 31, 2006 [1 favorite]


And because there are no pictures. So no one knows for sure the shenannigans that were afoot. As it should be.
