Engineer's Farewell Party

IF YOU MISSED THE RSVP DEADLINE, YOU MUST EMAIL DP AND ENGINEER TO GET PERMISSION TO COME.  WHILE WE CAN ACCEPT 1-2 EXTRA PEOPLE, D&B CATERING CANNOT ACCOMMODATE 82 EXTRA PEOPLE JUST DECIDING TO SHOW UP EVEN IF THE ROOM CAN FIT THAT MANY.

 

ALSO, NOTE FOR YOU UNDER-21 FOLKS.  FIND A "BUDDY" AMONG THE OVER-25 FOLKS.  I KNOW WE WON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS, BUT JUST IN CASE SOMEONE AT D&B ASKS YOU CAN POINT TO A PERSON AND SAY "THAT'S MY GUARDIAN".  6 UNDER-21 CAN CLAIM 1 OVER-25 - I'M SURE WE'LL BE FINE.

 

Engie's leaving us for a few months here starting in January and we must see him off in traditional DC Brony style, Dave and Buster's, cause that's where all the cool kids go.

The plan is simple: dinner, then games, then hugs and tears cause it will be the last time you all see him until Summer. As for me I'm gonna secretly follow him back to his house and when he lays down I'm gonna ...... Lols.  <-- Joke's on DP, I'll probably be moved out by then.

So we got too big for D&B!!  We've had to actually book a party room, because frankly they can't handle our awesome...or at least our awesome numbers.

Also with this, it IS going to cost you guys something.  Because of the official party status and the number of people coming, we have to cater it.  So I'll be asking that you send my $25 via paypal or bring it in cash day of to cover dinner (that's about what we all spend anyhow when we go).  The other costs will be taken care of.

Dinner includes:

-Fresh tortilla chips piled high and smothered with spicy ground beef and melted queso, topped with black beans, jalapenos, tomatoes, lettuce, fresh guacamole and sour cream.
-Four cheese pizza bites with basil pesto
-Goldbites served with chipotle-honey sauce
-Bar burgers (mini cheeseburgers) served on Hawaiian rolls with secret sauce
-Our Lawnmower salad layered using fresh romaine and green leaf lettuce, grilled chicken, diced garden vegetables, boiled eggs, bacon bits and bleu cheese crumbles served with Ranch dressing
-Fresh veggies with ranch dip
-Tortilla chips with fire-roasted salsa
-Fresh guacamole
-Unlimited Coffee, Soda and Tea

Alcohol is on you.

There is an end time, but that's just when we have to be out of the party room - we can still hang at D&B and play games until they close if we want.

 

Dinner AND a show.  So apparently only about a dozen of you were around in March 2012 to see the (in)-famous Cutie Mark Crusaders show that Johnathan I. Thomen, Gummy and myself did.  There will be an encore performance.  If you wish to humiliate us, I suggest you record it.

    It had everything to make the evening awesome. Food, you guys and ponies. We'll miss you Engine!

    An awesome venue with the party room being perfect to let us watch episodes and have a really fun sing along. Recommend we use this for big events at D&B going forward.

      We had the best elements of both locations. :-)

    • Ben B.

      I agree! I have to hand it to the D&B staff too. When I was leaving, several of the staff noticed I was having a lot of trouble moving and offered to help.

    This was awesome! I missed a bunch of the more recent meetups and while this can't make up for those, it came close!
    Love ya Engie.

    Anyone got pics / video of us singing the smile song?

  • Adrian (.

    First meetup and absolutely loved it. A shame that I didn't get to knew Engie a bit before he left but I'll see him again in a few months hopefully (depending on my schedule).

    I'm doing a video/slideshow of everything I took tonight and hopefully Engie will get a chance to see it before he leaves. I'll try and get it out either today or tomorrow and I'll post a link up.

    Curse the flu, curse viruses and bad germs and all the unholy things spawned at the fall. I am truly sorry I could not make this. But even now, after spending two days in bed I am not feeling ready to do anything yet. Godspeed Engie, and I'll see you on the flipside when you have grit in your teeth like the rest of us dried out desert warriors.

      Hi man hope you feel better and if you need help with the party I'm here to help and I think sips world like to help too

  • Rodrigo O.

    It's a guarantee that every time I drop by the DC area, good times will follow. And last night was no exception. It was great seeing all of you again, and thanks to TMC for letting me crash at his place. I agree that Engie got one heck of a send off. Hurry back!

  • Twîlight S.

    Food was great, minimal cornea/eardrum bleeding occurred during CMC performance, couldn't have sent Engie off any better!

    But I wasted $12 on my card >.>

    1 · January 11, 2013

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      I meant that I used mine, but not very well. (I got about 800 tickets, but I usually get about 1,500 tickets for every $12 I put on my card.)

      January 12, 2013

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Still, I agree with you, Nik. (I'd want it to be earlier in the day, so I don't risk missing my last bus of the day.)

      January 12, 2013

    First meetup I've ever been to and hopefully wont be my last!

    What a great meetup. I think we gave Engie the best sendoff we could.

    Of course my luck just got shittier. Only a mile from my house and one of my tires came off the rim. I will be really late.

      If I was driving I'd totally swing by.. but I used Metro of all days. Stay safe out there dude.

  • Canaan W.

    I RSVP'ed earlier, but I want to know two things:

    Will I need extra cash for D&B fun? And is it alright if I bring my little brother with me? He's a big time fan of the show and I'd love to add him to the collective.

    January 11, 2013

    • Riftwing

      I'd say it's ok as long as you're the over 25 "guardian" or both of you find a guardian. You'll need money if you want to play the games. I don't know how much, though, since I never play them.

      January 11, 2013

    • Canaan W.

      Bluh. Never mind. Little bro can't make it on time, which screws me over. Another meeting I can't get to. Darn it.

    BFV, Mikhail, and I are already here in The Show Room.

    Thought I'd pass along that Andrew and Joe (from Pennsylvania) unfortunately can't make it tonight. I should be there within the hour depending on metro.

    Just wondering: Should I bring my camera to take pictures and film (I have a camcorder and a slr camera) or does someone already have that covered?

    January 10, 2013

      I've got a photo camera, but no video camera. We usually have 2-3 people at every meetup taking pictures, anyway.

    If anyone lives near Takoma Park (or happens to drive past it) I would love to bum a ride from you.
    Otherwise I'll probably just take a taxi. :3

      I have room for you, and you are kind of on my way. I'll be coming up 495 from VA (inner loop) so don't mind making the extra jump to you :) [masked] cell

      January 10, 2013

  • Tim "DJ H.

    So can someone elaborate on the sound setup they have in this "party room" or was it the pinkie room, I dunno. If they have the speakers and hookups and such I'll just bring my laptop and weapon of choice (The S4) and see if I can't rock the house.

    January 6, 2013

    • Rodrigo O.

      Ouch. Hope you feel better soon.

      January 9, 2013

    • Adrian (.

      Dang sorry to hear that. Remember to drink plenty of green tea with natural honey ^_^ does wonders for the flu

      January 10, 2013

    Looks like I may have to order separate, spicy stuff would kill me.

    January 9, 2013

    • AppleJack

      I tried to rsvp last night cause I realized Kurt was gonna go and it would be easier to meet him there and get to his house for the con the next day, versus my mom dropping me off at his house. :/

      January 9, 2013

    • Tim "DJ H.

      You can have my spot AJ, This flu has nailed me hard and I am down for the count. I am sorry everyone, but it would be a horrific lapse in judgement if I were to come, I do NOT want anyone else getting this. I'm already missing work days because of it, and I may end up not going to drill weekend either, I am in that bad shape. Engie, best of luck to you, stay safe and get back to us in one piece.
