2 Year Anniversary of Pony Meetups

April 2011 Bejoty & I threw the first meetups: Our first at Sakuracon, and the first non-con meetup worldwide for ponies in Tacoma, WA. As we're nearing the 2 year anniversary of pony meetups, I'd like to suggest a re-invasion of Dorky's 2 years later for a day or evening of ponies, video games, pinball and fun!

 

A reminder that Dorky's does not allow outside food or drink, but you can get a soda with unlimited refills for $2. They're also going to be streaming episodes for us as the owner is also a brony/pony fan.

 

If you need parking, there's three options: There's Street parking which is free on Sundays, but fills up fast. There's also the Tacoma Dome Parking structure which is free 24-7, and from there you can take the light rail link for free to the final stop next to Dorky's (A 5-6 minute ride). Your final option is the parking garage at 11th & Commerce by the bus stops. They offer 2 hours free parking if you buy something at one of the local stores--which Dorky's is on that list.

    I'm thinking we could all meet on in the area next to the bar/food cashier? There's a tier next to that with retro arcade machines, cocktail cabinets & some of the better classic pinball machines (I love Bride of Pinbot, what can I say?). Sound good? Also, if anyone is into video game history, the Donky Kong and Donky Kong Jr. arcade machines at Dorky's are on loan from Steve Wiebe--IE the first person to ever score over 1,000,000 in Donkey Kong, and part of the duo of players featured in the documentary 'King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters'.

    Nice, a Tacoma meet up. I'm for sure there

    Okay, so free/nearly free parking discussion! There's two options for those who don't want to pay for downtown parking. Option one is to park at the Tacoma Dome Parking structure and take the light rail link for free to the final stop next to Dorky's. Your other option is that the parking garage at 11th & Commerce (Right by the bus stops) Offers 2 hours free parking if you buy something at one of the local stores--and Dorky's is on this list. If you run over the 2 hours, the 11th & Commerce parking isn't that bad a cost given the alternatives.

      April 14th is the date that worked best for the location!

    I'm interested but it will depend on the date. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are unlikely to work for something in Tacoma.
