Cider sipping.

  • Dec 28, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Applejack has 2 new apple cider recipes that she is just DYING to try out. She needs willing ponies to taste test said ciders.

(I was thinking of doing this at my house, but I live in Pasadena, mareyland. Dunno how many ponies can get here. But I have a large enough house/backyard that it would be no problem for a bunch of ponies to come.)

Since I'm sure some of us will need a ride, here's a carpooling spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As_DpmqLkVX5dDJnajJ4NXRBZnlOMUhyRERlWTNNYnc

    I think the hot cider was great! (I forgot to try the sparkling cider.)

    Hey yo Alma
    Where's the video for the crack shipping?
    Oh well, we'll just have to do it again!

    Great cider! a little less brown sugar, it needed some more tartness. I'll stop being a food critic now, great party

    Have fun storming the cas...errm guzzling the cider!

    December 28, 2012

    • AppleJack

      You couldn't come? :(

      December 28, 2012

    • Tim "DJ H.

      No, unfortunately I had to work.

    Great party, just too bad more people didn't show up. Got horribly lost on the drive over, but that's no one's fault but my own.

  • Matthew C. L.

    This was a great little party. Big thanks again to AJ and her folks for putting together such an entertaining evening. The guessing game and random shipping challenges were both great fun, and the food was excellent, as well. Especially the night's centerpiece: the cider. Both the warm and cold versions tasted great!

    So, who won that chess game?

    December 29, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Johnathan won. When the game ended, there were only 3 pieces left: the 2 kings, & Johnathan's queen.

    Had a blast, crack-ship game was best, we need more ponies for it though!

    As with any DC Brony Meet up, it was fantastic. The Crack-ship game was the best, definitely something we have to bring back.

      No, his parent's wouldn't take him.

    Not going to be able to make it, plans changed :(

    December 28, 2012

  • ~Alma~ D.

    Running late because traffic and errands took longer than expected. Should be there before 7.

    December 28, 2012

  • Rodrigo O.

    Hope someone's monitoring the comments, cause my ride may not get here for a while. Any chance someone could dash out to BWI to get me?

    December 28, 2012

      whats your number ill give ya a ride

    Looks like William and I will be a tad late getting there. It appears traffic isn't exactly being cooperative.

    I just took some snicker doodles out of the oven and will be on my way shortly.

    Parents just told me no... It's supposed to snow here like crazy... so they changed their answer on me.... I hate when they do that... I wish they'd trust me to drive safe *sighs* See y'all at another meetup...

    December 28, 2012

    • TruckerPony

      snow starts tomorrow you will be fine

      December 28, 2012

    what's the itinerary for the night AJ.

    1 · December 27, 2012

    • AppleJack

      Which I haven't seen. But I'm searching up some pony games, and I have a great one planned!

      December 28, 2012

    • ~Alma~ D.

      I have a 26in tv I could bring.

      December 28, 2012

  • AppleJack

    One more stipulation. I have 2 dogs. If anyone is allergic to, or does not like dogs, please tell me before 4 tomorrow. Thank you!

    December 27, 2012

  • Rodrigo O.

    I think if I bought my tickets down here, I might be able to participate. LOL

    BTW, I think someone said they could get me from BWI if I'm not mistaking. However, I'm hoping a plane over there instead of the train. And I'd need to be back at BWI to catch the last train back to New York. I'd be driving but my car got wrecked, hence why I'd need a hand with this.

    December 25, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      I'll add in my info, though William S. told me on Twitter he may be able to help me out there.

      December 27, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      William S. has offered to come get me at the airport. As for when I have to leave, I basically need to be at BWI in time to catch the 10:40pm train. However, I'm still not sure whether I'll be able to make it as I'm trying to shake off a cold.

      December 27, 2012

  • John Locke (Rolling W.

    I was thinking, since this meetup is starting at (a normal) dinnertime, will it include dinner? (I mean, even just some/all of us chipping in for ordering pizza.)

    December 27, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      I wouldn't mind chipping in for some pizza.

      December 27, 2012

      I love Little Caesar's. :-)

      December 27, 2012

  • Neil A.

    I may or may not be able to make it. I am going to try, but I have no idea what my schedule looks like. Also, is it alcoholic cider, or is the cider for anypony?

    December 23, 2012

    • Neil A.

      Ok. Unfortunately I will be unable to make it to the cider sipping :( I found out yesterday night that we will be leaving for my grandparents' house for new years on friday and staying for the weekend. See you all at the next event.

      December 24, 2012

    • AppleJack

      :( I'll bring some of the most voted cider to the next meetup then

      December 27, 2012

  • John Locke (Rolling W.

    I was just thinking, why isn't this listed as being at Sweet Apple Acres?

    December 26, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      Well it would make things a lot more interesting.

      December 26, 2012

    • AppleJack

      Guys, we just paid for a new roof. Lets not add a new garage door into the mix (Since that's the only place a wagon could crash, seeing as my house is up a good... 3 feet off the actual ground)

    is there anything we need to bring ?

    December 27, 2012

      If you guys wanna bring snacks and stuff that's fine :3

    what's the parking situation at your house like AJ?

    December 26, 2012

    • AppleJack

      Theres plenty of parking, and since I believe (or hope) it's not on a football night, we should pretty much have the entire long driveway, plus some grass.

      December 27, 2012

  • Matthew C. L.

    Okay; looks like my schedule for later this week got flipped around and I'll now be working in the morning on the 28th. I can theoretically make this, but it's one heck of a trip for me. I'll probably have to be picked up from the far reaches of the Green Line (Greenbelt Station) and carpool the other half of the way. Any room left in your car, Johnathan?

    December 25, 2012

    • AppleJack

      Woo hoo!

    Need to see if I can still get a ride, the only issue would be that Ajs house is about 30 mins away, even though its like just across the river... Heh

  • Adrian (.

    Just got my schedule and I have to work. No one wants to cover my shift so bah T_T

  • Flame Risk (.

    I might be able to make this give me till monday to see what my plans are. I would love to be a taste tester XD

    Also, might be able to pick up some people too. If things work out, I have a honda fit so I can stuff 4 extra people in my car comfortably. I shall comfirm in the next 3 days.

    Anyone live in the Sterling VA area?

    December 21, 2012

  • Adrian (.

    Hmm, I'll give a try to see if I can go but I wont know till I get my schedule for next week. Hopefully cause I need to get out more. :P

    December 20, 2012

  • Johnathan I. T.

    Oh! For those who need a ride, as of now I have two more slots to fill up! If you are from afar, one option I can suggest is we can meet you at a Metro station and pick you up from there!

    December 17, 2012

    • Ellie (.

      Holy.. where do you live then? I'm down by st marys church on 450.

      I live right near the DC border, small town called Chapel Oaks :)

      December 18, 2012

  • Rodrigo O.

    I'm gonna put in a request for time off that day. This date will DEFINITELY work if I can get it. But if that's the case, is AJ's house accessible by public transit? If not, I may need a lift from the BWI Amtrak stop.

    December 16, 2012

    • Max S.

      I could pick you up. BWI Station is on my way there.

      December 17, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      I think I'll take you up on that. I'll see what time I'll get there though.

    I'll have to say maybe as well... If I can make it I'll be a bit late since I don't get out of work till 6

    If I had a big enough house, and a more brony accepting family, I'd totally say my house, but alas, I can't hold y'all here... If anypony needs a ride from UMBC I can help, but I'll need directions to AJ's house. (I can only hold bout 4 bronies in my car other than me)I also have NO IDEA if family has plans that day, so we'll see. :3
