After the recent backlash Chili's got for their shoutout to bronies, let's show them we support them.
I just need a final count by Wednesday so I can get a reservation, so be sure to RSVP ASAP! -Sam

Another successful meet. Got email addresses and phone numbers from everyone who attended. It is important to not that every time we have a restaraunt meetup, we need to ask the waiter for seperate checks. Figuring out how to seperate one check is next to impossible to do accurately. But great meetup, everyone was behaved, and we had a ton of fun.

We have that issue all the time with D&B meetups! I feel your pain. Sometimes the best method is to have everyone pay equally. Never separate the check though, that's a waiter's worst nightmare!

well that was a great meetup
Great get-together. Chilis was awesome !
The 90.5 NPR station has this program called "Wits" and they made a pretty clear and interesting parody skit about a unicorn. I couldn't help but see the parallels between our show and that skit. If you get the chance, see if you can hear it somewhere. It was quite funny.

If whoever gets there first could text me that would be great. Remember that the reservation is under the name "Sam," NOT "Bronies".
Is anybody gonna be driving nearish where my house is (Colchester) after Chili's tonight? It turned out that my car is not with me and I'm up by Chili's right now. I wouldn't be able to get my car and head up in time. If nobody is, I'll try and ask my dad if he can get me, or if somebody could bring me into Glastonbury or something it would be really good.
Never mind! I got a ride, but I am without anything pony except for my belt. Hopefully that's not too bad. I'll maybe tuck my shirt in
Alright, just to make this clear, everyone is to be on their BEST behavior tonight. We're going here as representatives of the fandom. The only reason I say this is because we were a bit over rowdy at Sonic after the bowling meetup. So no jumping around or yelling. Yeah, we're going to be a bit loud, but just keep it to an acceptable level.
3 · October 5
Agreed. Sonic was a little much, but it was okay because we were outside. Since we're indoors, we should all use our indoor voices.
Couldn't agree more. And the Sonic people were ok with us anyway. Chili's is a bit more posh.
The employees were okay with us. There was a family sitting near us that was not happy at all.
Except for that one kid who enjoyed our opening of the pony cards. I was confused by him.
Yeah, that confused me too.
He was talking a lot about yugioh and magic cards right?
Yeah, that's what it was. I used to play Yugioh when I was just a wee lad, but that was long ago. I tried Magic once, but I got confused and quit.
I would like to go, but I can't travel that far up to Newington. I wouldn't mind if I could hitch a ride from someone who's bypassing Milford.
0 · October 4
I won't have the gas to make it around to Milford myself, but john might.
Ha I practically live in Milford.
1 · October 4
Well, there you go, Rylus. Your ride is available if you want it.
Ok, if John can provide the ride. Then I can go.
now is a decent time to get things into motion, so rylus, you and john should arrange a place for him to pick you up if you haven't already.
He gave me his address. We all good homie.
Alright, I called Chili's. the reservation is under "Sam" (it was loud in the background do she couldn't make out "brony"), so if anyone gets there before me, just tell them someone called ahead for a party of 12. So if we have any last minute RSVPs, we have space for one or two extra people.
Called Chili's, they do not take reservations but if I call during the day Saturday I can get us on the call ahead list and they can put together some tables for us.

As long as they have future notice.
Yeah, I'm getting up early Saturday for a doctors appointment, so I'll call them as soon as they open so we can be sure we're all seated together.
Is everyone okay with a change of time to 5:00p?
0 · September 28
Comment now or forever hold your butthurt.
5 o'clock? Awesome I'll make the reservation when, Thursday or Friday night?

Keeping it Saturday would work better for me as well
I know the date is going to be Saturday, I meant when do I call chili's in advance to make the reservations? Should I do it the day before?
Of, you're calling them? I was going to call on Wednesday.
Im sorry, I know its kind if late to reply, but(t) 5:00pm is just too convenient for me. I'll have to meet up with you guys then, hope to see everyone at the next event.
I'm kinda confused by your comment Gerard, are you going or not? I haven't called it in yet, it's not too late.
If you're confused by my comment, then I'll add another tally mark to my daily wins
4 · October 2
Alright. I'm going to call it in in a bit.
Bravo Gerard bravo.
Forgive my shameful ignorance, but what happened with Chilis and teir support of bronies, anyway?
Alright, I'm calling it in tomorrow. I'll be telling them to have it ready for 10-12 people.
0 · October 1
You gonna put it under your name?
I still think we should put it under "CT Bronies Support Squad", sounds more professional.
I was planning on just putting it in as "Bronies," but I'll figure it out when I call them.
As usual if anyone needs a ride I am more than willing to give you one
0 · September 24
im gonna need a ride :D
0 · September 25
No problem :-)
And I can bring you home this time as well :-)
Any way someone can make it to Groton?
Friday or Saturday works for me.
By the by, how's the poster doing?
Spence changed the time from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM
I'll be there. For reals, this time.

Alright everyone, the deadline for RSVPs is Wednesday, because for a party this big, we HAVE to make a reservation.
Any chance we push it back to around 5. That way I have time to get home take a shower then there? I don't feel comfortable going to any meet up after work without a shower.
We can try, but keep in mind the wait time increases as the day moves on.
I figured we should reserve with a larger party like ours.
Wer should definitely get a reservation. Even if we only were to have 4 people going, it's best to call ahead
Fair enough. Whoever feels responsible enough to call them up can go right ahead.
I can imagine the phone call now. "Yes hi can I reserve a table for a party of ten please?" "Sure what you're party's name?" "..............uh Bronies? *awkward smile*"
1 · September 28
you could just use your name, dude.
Ya, whoever calls, just use your name as the reservation name.
Eh reservation under brony sounds cooler. About 20% cooler.
Alright, remind me on Wednesday and I'll call them, just in case we get any more RSVP's.
5 is great for me too, works great with my plans
It's my sister's birthday so most likely no.
Not a huge fan of Chili's but I don't see why they got any backlash. It was all in good fun. Some people just can't take a joke.
I can pick people up too if they're on my route. I'm coming from Goshen, so let me know if you need a ride.
Spence changed the date and time to Saturday, October 05, 2013 at 3:30 PM
Spence changed the location to Chili's Grill & Bar
okay, so here's all the Chili's locations in the state. take your pick: wallingford, hamden, east haven, cromwell, milford, southington, waterbury, shelton, newington, new britain, bristol, glastonbury
0 · September 20
i think wallingford might be the most convenient, considering everyone's location.....hmmm, i need to make another map ;)
0 · September 21
actually, i think the newington one is a bit more centralized for everyone, considering that anything that's a hop and a skip away for me is too far away for everyone else.
0 · September 22
Newington is better for me.
0 · September 23
According to Equestria Daily, 100% of Chili's profits on September 23rd are going to charity for a children's hospital called St. Jude.
That might be too soon to set as the date of this meet up but I think I'll pay an early visit anyways if I find one nearby.
I still would like to know what the Chili's tweet was. I would defend my fellow Bronies to my death. Well, maybe to the brink of death. Not sure if I'd die for any Brony other than my son. :)
Who better to offer undying support and the best day ever than the CT Bronies?
HECK YEAH! LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
Sorry if I sound enthusiastic. No one deserves to be hated upon for a harmless twitter post. I hope to be that kind of Brony who's there for anypony being bullied by the haters. Who knows? Maybe Chili's will become the Bronies official restaurant chain.
I am confused. What exactly was the tweet? I tried to find it on EqD but just found the forum. Possibly will join in, not sure yet.
A group of Connecticut Bronies looking for the best of what our small state can offer!
