CT Bronies Support Chili's!

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!

    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

      October 5

  • Sam McGray

    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.

    • Liger Zero

      He was talking a lot about yugioh and magic cards right?

      October 5

    • Sam McGray

      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.

  • Rylus

    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.

    October 4

    • Spence

      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.

      October 5

    • Liger Zero

      He gave me his address. We all good homie.

      October 5

  • Sam McGray

    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.

    October 5

  • Sam McGray

    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.

    1 · October 2

    • Liger Zero

      As long as they have future notice.

      1 · October 2

    • Sam McGray

      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.

      October 2

  • Sam McGray

    Is everyone okay with a change of time to 5:00p?

    September 28

    • Sam McGray

      Alright. I'm going to call it in in a bit.

      October 2

    • Liger Zero

      Bravo Gerard bravo.

      October 2

  • John Fulcher

    Forgive my shameful ignorance, but what happened with Chilis and teir support of bronies, anyway?

    October 2

  • Sam McGray

    Alright, I'm calling it in tomorrow. I'll be telling them to have it ready for 10-12 people.

    October 1

    • Gavin"Hama129"

      I still think we should put it under "CT Bronies Support Squad", sounds more professional.

      October 2

    • Sam McGray

      I was planning on just putting it in as "Bronies," but I'll figure it out when I call them.

      October 2

  • Zachary

    As usual if anyone needs a ride I am more than willing to give you one

    September 24

  • John Fulcher

    Friday or Saturday works for me.

    September 30

  • Sam McGray

    By the by, how's the poster doing?

    September 30

  • Spence­ changed the time from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM

    September 29

  • John Fulcher

    I'll be there. For reals, this time.

    1 · September 29

  • Sam McGray

    Alright everyone, the deadline for RSVPs is Wednesday, because for a party this big, we HAVE to make a reservation.

    September 28

  • Liger Zero

    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.

    September 28

    • Liger Zero

      Eh reservation under brony sounds cooler. About 20% cooler.

      1 · September 28

    • Sam McGray

      Alright, remind me on Wednesday and I'll call them, just in case we get any more RSVP's.

      September 28

  • Gavin"Hama129"

    5 is great for me too, works great with my plans

    September 28

  • SullMaster

    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.

    September 24

  • Sam McGray

    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.

    September 24

  • Spence­ changed the date and time to Saturday, October 05, 2013 at 3:30 PM

    September 24

  • Spence­ changed the location to Chili's Grill & Bar

    September 24

  • Spence

    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

    September 20

    • Spence

      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.

      September 22

    • Sam McGray

      Newington is better for me.

    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?

      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.

      September 21

  • Mare Mir

    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.

    September 21

  • Gavin"Hama129"

    I'm game!
