Pony Viewing Marathon & Potluck

  • May 10, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In the interest of taking advantage of spacious living quarters and my love of feeding people, I'm proposing a MLP viewing marathon at my place.

LOCATION: I'm minutes away from the Van Dorn metro station; 20 minute (slow) walk, 2 minute drive, or there is a bus that drops you off on my doorstep (almost literally).

It's dangerous to go alone... Actually, not at all, but the map above (URL under the address) will help you find your way and show you where you can park.

TIME: Time... well it's a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... (Whoops. Wrong fandom). 5pm is a very vague guideline. Everything starts whenever people show up and ends when the last person leaves. I'll probably have a majority of the food ready by 7pm and will start episodes around 5:30-6pm but, feel free to show up whenever you would like.

FOOD: The menu is as follows:

shredded slow roasted beef sammiches (yes, it's sammiches, not sandwich)

spicy mac and cheese (not burn-your-tastebuds-off spicy. More like a small kick in the aftertaste after a whole burst of tasty cheesy goodness)

and an asian styled salad.

While I'm managing the main course, I would appreciate it if we could coordinate with other food items and supplies such as...

Soda/Drinks

Plastic utensils, plates, cups, etc.

Dessert

Snack-ish items (fruits, veggies, chips, etc.)

and whatever else people would like to eat.

This spreadsheet lists who's bringing what, & what needs to be brought that nopony said they'll bring yet.

We have a fairly nice kitchen setup so, if you need to make something while you're here, feel free. There are also three different grocery stores in the area if you need to pick anything up.

OTHER STUFF: If you have allergies, please be aware that there are many animals running around (2 cats and a rather large dog). The cats will probably hide from you, but are otherwise friendly. Fenris is just a large ball of fur and love, but can be put away if requested.

    I may not get there until 7. Work will run later than usual and I'll be using the metro.

    May 10, 2013

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    May 9, 2013

  • K

    Guy guys! Guess what! It's today!

    *insert sounds of Pinkie Pie's party cannon exploding*

    There's going to be ponies and people... and I get to feed all of you! I'M SO EXCITED!

    As a final reminder: I can be reached via phone/text at (410)[masked] if you need me at any point today.

    Ride call-out....
    Anypony willing to drive up(or down depending on where you are) to Columbia, MD to grant me a ride?

    May 10, 2013

  • Mike 'Matrix' V.

    I hate to do this last minute, but... I don't think I'm going to come. I'm going to change my RSVP to no so someone else can fill my spot. If I change my mind in a few hours, I guess I'll text K to ask if it's still alright for me to show up or if there will be too many people XP
    Ah, as for the reason... *scratches his head* Well, it's personal and sad. I don't want to dampen the mood cuz I want you all to have a great time. If you want to know, feel free to ask. I'll provide contact information upon request.

    May 10, 2013

    Looking forward to this evening! I probably will be there a bit past 5, depends on traffic, but will send a text if I will be very late.

    May 9, 2013

  • James

    For anyone who might give a flying feather, there is a farmers market about a mile south of the meetup site. I know they have cookies and kettle corn and some other stuff that might be of interest.

    May 9, 2013

  • Johnathan I. T.

    Sorry that I won't be able to make this tomorrow night. With trying to finalize everything for college graduation including finishing a paper, I probably need to use the time Friday night to do that. But I'll see ya at the zoo Saturday!

    May 9, 2013

  • K

    For anyone with food allergies, this is what the meal will contain:

    SALAD: Cabbage, spinach, bell peppers, bean sprouts, cilantro, scallions (green onions), cucumbers, cashews

    DRESSING: Lime, olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro

    SAMMICHES: beef, butter, onions, garlic, soy sauce, red wine, italian seasoning + various spices

    MAC & CHEESE: pasta, olive oil, onions, bell peppers, jalapeño (no seeds), green chilies (no seeds), corn, garlic, pepper jack cheese

  • K

    A little more than 24 hours left! I'm excited to have all of you over. :)

    If anyone plans on cooking/baking when you get here and may need ingredients, please let me know via comment/email/text/phone call [masked]). I'm going out to the store today and I'll make another run early tomorrow morning to pick up the roast from the butcher's. It won't be hard for me to pick up extra supplies as needed.

    May 9, 2013

  • ThunderDork

    Is it possible i I could hitch a ride from anyone passing through the college park area?

    May 9, 2013

  • Sapphire S.

    Something came up; I won't be able to join. If I stop by it'll be for drive-by-hugs & that's about it. :(

    May 9, 2013

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    What bus do i take from the metro

    May 8, 2013

  • Mike 'Matrix' V.

    I know we still have a few days, but I want to make sure I get enough supplies for whatever I wind up baking. I'd like to know what everyone would like. I do pretty much all manners of baked goods from scratch and I'd like to make something that everyone would like. Right now I'm leaning towards chocolate chip cookies or rainbow colored cupcakes, but if people want to vote for anything else, I'll definitely go for the majority.

    May 7, 2013

    • Mike 'Matrix' V.

      Hrm. I could do both, but it's a lot easier to make a double batch of the same thing then a single batch of each. If other people want me to do both, I'll look into how much it'll cost me to get supplies for both and decide then if it's reasonable.

      May 7, 2013

    • Mike 'Matrix' V.

      Hm. Well, since people don't seem to care enough to cast a vote, I'll just make whatever I feel like doing. I'll likely bring in chocolate chip cookies since I can definitely make a lot of those easily, but the cupcakes would take a lot more time and would be a bit of an experiment. Plus would probably cost me considerably more to make.

      May 8, 2013

  • Ori W.

    I would like to go, but I have plans that day and it looks like spots are full anyhow :) have fun every pony

    May 8, 2013

  • Edward R.

    On the subject of drinks, do you want bottles or twelve-packs of cans?

    May 6, 2013

    • K

      But honestly, either or works.

      May 6, 2013

    • Edward R.

      Alright, I'll stop by CVS on the way over and pick up some bottles there.

      May 8, 2013

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    just wondering how are we watching ponies nextflix

    May 6, 2013

    • K

      Netflix was the plan. They have season 3 available now.

      May 7, 2013

  • K

    So here's the current plan: I have an afternoon appt that I HAVE to go to but, I will have the door open by 5pm. Feel free to come in and expect to be greeted with enthusiastic puppy kisses.

    For dinner: I'm doing a slow cooked beef roast for sammiches, a large pot of spicy mac and cheese, and a salad of some sort.
    Desserts, snacky things, and drinks would be appreciated.

    What else... OH! Remember to check the link below the address for details on parking and metro location.

    If anyone has questions, concerns, prophecies, or just generic random statements (preferably about the event): please feel free to call/text me at[masked]-1568. (Please let me know who you are.)

    May 6, 2013

  • Swftkat (.

    Kay, I'll go.

    May 4, 2013

  • K

    If you think you might show up, even for a little while, please RSVP. I need to know how many people I should be cooking for.

    May 2, 2013

  • Swftkat (.

    Strongly considering this. It's been a while since I sat down to watch zee ponies.

    May 2, 2013

  • Timothy H.

    I think I could bring a few of those items mentioned and maybe a dish or two.

    April 30, 2013

  • Johnathan I. T.

    I'll have plates, utensils and cups taken care of for this meetup!

    April 29, 2013

  • K

    Updated the description to include a map to help with general directions, parking, etc. Also, as a reminder, start time is a vague guideline. Everything starts when people show up and ends when the last person leaves.

    April 28, 2013

    • TruckerPony

      well at our last big meet up it started on a thurday and 1 guy was still there on wensday

      April 28, 2013

    • K

      Well, I do have bed and couch space for anyone who decides to crash. Can't guarantee I'll be able to keep them fed past the 48hr mark though.

      April 29, 2013

  • Angela

    Most likely will be there but I will probably have to duck out relatively early (around 830ish?)

    April 28, 2013

  • Prism

    I DON'T SEE WHY NOT!
    YES. I SHALL GO~!

    April 27, 2013

  • William B.

    I wish I could be there, but I have another obligation that time in the day...

    April 25, 2013

  • Branden (.

    Sorry, I'll be at EQLA...

  • Sapphire S.

    Earliest I'd be able to get there is 7:30, but I'd be happy to join.

    April 24, 2013

    • K

      No worries! Timing is quite flexible for this event.

      April 25, 2013

  • Prism

    Depending on how FINISHED my ceramics are by then decides if I'd be able ta go.

    April 25, 2013

  • James

    I live off of Rose Hill Dr so I am going to attempt to take advantage of this opportunity of having a meetup being so close.

    April 25, 2013

  • Mike 'Matrix' V.

    I'd definitely love to join in on this! Unless I get a last minute job request, I should be free all day that day. I'm open for changing the date/time to whatever works best for everyone. And I only live like a half hour drive away, so as long as there is a place for me to park, I can just drive out there. As for food, I'm actually kinda an aspiring baker, so I'd love to bring some of my famous chocolate chip cookies or some cupcakes or something.

    April 24, 2013

    • K

      Sounds delicious! You are welcome to make use of our kitchen as well if it would be easier for you to just bring ingredients.

      April 24, 2013

    • Mike 'Matrix' V.

      That'd really depend on what I make. I was thinking that since this a MLP marathon and all, I could make a bunch of cupcakes. Or just one cake if anyone else can't look at cupcakes the same way due to a certain fan fic ^^; I always wanted to try making a rainbow colored cake, so I could do that. Of course if we wanna keep it more simple, I have my chocolate chip cookies down to an art, so I can make those easily. I have no objection to making brownies or chocolate cake instead too, so if anyone has a preference, just let me know.

      April 25, 2013

  • Carolyn C.

    My husband & I are interested in this. Sounds like fun. I'm not sure about our schedule yet, but I want to put us down as "maybe."

    April 24, 2013

  • TruckerPony

    well that date I'm working
