    Being a brony kicks plot if we get drunk and party like everyone else. People should stop being so damn ignorant.

    ^•^ It took me a half hour and five revisions, but I ended up picking the simplest version and it's built to last, at that! Derpy has a tricorne! XD ... But I don't *think* he'll be blonde tonight.. I have to check.

    Thank you everyone! This was a great time, great place, even better company, wonderful antics, and fantastic conversations! <3 ! Hugs!

      Very fair point. Although "Pirates for Sail" only sing for about 45 mins in an evening. Perhaps if *we're* the ones singing? :: shrug ::

      April 26, 2013

      ^ I vote yes to this.
      We could start the traditional "Drunken Sailor" bit!

    It's the next morning and I'm home safe without a hangover and can properly breathe now that I'm not in that damned corset. All good signs of a fantastic evening. :D It was lovely to meet so many of you and see some familiar faces as well.

    Yo guys just wanted to say I had a blast and it was great puttin names to faces and all dat. While it was 40 days in the desert during rush hour to get back into DC/MD for us VA peeps, was totally worth it.

    Ori: Peep this http://www.yelp.com/biz/rock-bottom-arlington for a metro accessible option next. (Dropping Bailey's because of recent management issues) There might be Crystal City and Rosslyn options too, but I don't know about large party handlin.

    Night, peace!

    I just got here and am searching for parking. It's a pain. There's a garage near the metro (a block from the pub) but it's metered. If you can metro in, I highly recommend it.

    Anybody got a spare eyepatch laying around. I will be marginally pirate like. But an eyepatch would help make me just slightly more marginal.

    I normally can't make it to meetups on Thursdays, because of my pinball league. But, since spring playoffs were last week, & the summer season doesn't start until the middle of May, I can make it to this. :-)
