Halloween meet up in Durham, NC August 17, 2009 7:54 AM   Subscribe

Halloween party meetup in Durham, NC--Saturday, Oct 31st, 2009.

I bought a house this summer, and one of the things that I was most excited about was being able to have people over without being too too cramped. SO!

Party at my house on Halloween. Local mefites are invited, of course, and if someone wants to come from farther away, awesome! I'll have limited space for crashing.

Who's in?

Had we but cash enough, and time,
This party, lady, were no crime.
We would sit down and think which way
To drink all this here booze and smash your new house up.


(So yeah, no, wrong continent. But JEALOUS!)

How about costumes optional?

Dang it, I have a gig that night and I can't make it. The one holiday where every magician who can halfway palm a coin has a gig and you guys have to go and have a meetup!

Goddammit! You WOULD have your party that weekend, wouldn't you? I will be in NYC, so that means this the second meet-up in a row that I will miss.

This sounds fun! Plus now I have plenty of time to try and think of a costume.

I'm in (and lesingesavant will get dragged along) and will buy booze/liquid refreshments courtesy of the 10th Anniversary fund.

Holder place.

Would love to be there - got your memail! - but alas, Halloween is something of a sacred holiday around here and I think I already sort of have plans. Have fun though!!

Whee! I'm excited. I knew a Halloween date had the potential to make things tough for some, but I also figured it would be easier for others, since it's a typical party day.

odinsdream, i'm just hoping announcing early won't make it fall off the radar too much.

As we get closer to the date, you can memail me for directions, phone, etc. I'll need a decently accurate count, and I'm thinking we'll do some kind of BYO deal.

Maybe....depending on how my remodeling issues are going.

Just commenting to bump this for anyone who hasn't looked recently--call it a reminder!

I'm going to pass on a costume.

Costumes! (optional, of course, but I'm going to be in one.)

Everybody ready to rock and roll?

(Did I really just say that?)
posted by Stewriffic at 2:32 PM on October 26, 2009

I'm totally ready to rock and roll. I will even make some attempt at a costume.

OK, since nobody likely knows where I live, etc., memail me for directions and phone number.

BTW, we're going to have this party's refreshments supplemented by the funds we didn't use for the 10th. Thanks, hydropsyche, for keeping up with that money!

As to the time of arrival, etc. I'm open. If you're traveling from afar and would like to come in early, let me know. Also, if anyone needs a place to sleep, now is the time to reserve a bed! I have one guest room with two twin beds, a pull-out queen bed, a big comfy couch and ample floor space.

Thanks for having us all, Stewie. It was a really nice time and it was great to meet new people and see familiar folks with more unusual hair than usual.

Had a blast! When odinsdream and purpletangerine left this morning they got to take some of the leftovers, thankfully. I need to have another party soon, because my fridge is loaded with beer.

Yes, thanks for the great party, Stewie. Lots of fun to see mefites again + Stewie's other cool friends.

If only we'd known the favorites change was coming. We could have had site policy discussions! In costume!

... see familiar folks with more unusual hair ...

Heh - I'm just glad I didn't kill myself with it - that stuff is potent. They are not kidding when they tell you to use it in well-ventilated areas.

But odin definitely wins the costume prize with his curls. I am in awe of his sister, and I don't even know her.
