This might warrant a bus-trip from NYC.

Yay! I will be there! I have drawn a skull-and-crossbones and a bowling pin on my calendar. Woo hoo!

I will be out of town. I am heartbroken.

Wait, I am thrilled to be going out of town. I am heartbroken that piratebowling's birthday bash is during the same time.

I reject the premise that piratebowling can age.

This, I can do.

Bah. I am meeting up with my mom in Boston that weekend, flying out on Friday the 15th.

Still: Hippo Birdy Two Ewe, and all that good stuff.

Someone must volunteer to flirt with piratebowling on my behalf.

Aw, man. I'm going to be in Philly on the 9th already =( I mean, nothing's stopping me from making another trip down I suppose, but I'm planning on drinking so much alcohol this coming weekend that I'll either need two weeks to recover or will have been effectively banned from Philadelphia thanks to behavior related to the alcohol consumption. But Happy Birthday!!

Some details: I will provide beer, S'mores bars and multiple types of macaroni and cheese. There will be hanging out on an awesome roof if the weather is nice. Mods drink free.

On a roof!

Promises of a roof... seriously tempting. Only if the freaking rain stops though.

Yes, thank you! What shall I bring? :)

Ugh... was trapped in suburbs until too damn late by family. Hope I missed something awesome.

Many thanks to all who came out. I had a great time, and you all were a significant part of that.
posted by piratebowling at 2:37 PM on May 16, 2009

I enjoyed it! The mac n cheese was excellent.

piratebowling: thank you for sharing your birthday celebration, and your roof, and your rainbow cake, and your IRL friends, and your clarinet and your sheet music to the theme from The Karate Kid Part II.

It was lovely to see the rest of you as usual. And I look forward to seeing you at either the 10th Anniversary MeetUp Planning Event or the MeetUp itself!

ludwig_van and *username redacted pending acquisition*: thank you so much for the ride home!

Sorry I missed it, I completely failed today at doing anything.
posted by polexa at 10:46 PM on May 16, 2009

Also, piratebowling: I googled "glocktopus" and it has a scary number of hits. The first being an urban dictionary from years ago. So move quick on that, before it really takes off.

Curious, where'd you guys all end up at? I had a great short trip in Philly this weekend. :] Went to Plough and the Stars, White Dog Cafe, and Continental Midtown. No Pats or Geno's though! :(
