5.2 Long Since We've Done This!

With the imminent release of patch 5.2 Thunder Thighs (?) I figure it's time (past time, really) to get the gang back together for a little thunderous meetup action of our own!

No special rules, costumes, or anything else required for this one - just bring yourself and your thirst for adventure.

And by adventure, I mean booze.

New players, Vanilla players, smooth playas...all are invited for some drinks and a little WoW shop talk. We're going to have a relaxed atmosphere, talk about where we're at with Wow, eat some pizza, and just generally have a good time. Everyone is welcome - Horde or Alliance, PVE or PVP, Night Elf or other lesser race - I'd love to hear how you're enjoying Pandaria and what you think might be in store for WoW in 2013.

For the time being I'm going to leave the location blank - normally I host at the Four Faced Liar, but I would like to hear other recommendations for spots people might like to try. Let me know what you think!

Also, there might be a raffle for a prize. I haven't decided.

    My HUGE thanks to everyone that made it out, especially our first-timers! I had a great time & we lucked out with the tables, even if they were for a limited time only ;) I really wish that I'd had the ability to talk to each of you guys a little more, but then, I always wish that. Feel free to friend me (Mundae#1390), and keep an eye out for the next event - feel free to send me suggestions for things you'd like to do or places to visit!

    Would anyone like to get some dinner in that neighborhood around 6:20pm?
    No drinking on an empty stomach.

    • Erik

      I had actually been planning on ordering food at the bar - they allow that and have menus available. I was thinking of just getting a pizza, but if people would like to organize something beforehand, that's cool too :)

      March 2, 2013

    • Matthew

      Works for me.

    March 2, 2013

  • Erik

    Okie doke, almost time...as ever, if you need directions, information, or to cancel, please feel free to txt me at (619)[masked] - don't forget to include your name so I know who you are! I'll be printing out a Meetup sign to make our group easily identifiable, but just look for the bald guy ;) See you all tonight!

  • Elizabeth F.

    I am so bummed! I am going to California to see my best friend for her baby shower so I won't be able to make this. ARGH! Can we do another one soon??

    February 24, 2013

    • Erik

      Ok, Elizabeth is going on the gank list.

      February 24, 2013

    • Mark

      no more free leather for youuuu

      February 24, 2013

  • Erik

    Okie doke, I'm closing the event to new RSVPs - I think 17 is as much as the space might be able to handle, but we'll still have a big fun group if a few people need to cancel (don't do it! I will gank you!). Congrats MChat (and Welcome!) on being the last one to squeak in! Anyone else that might see this and be sad that they missed it - never fear, there will be another ;)

    Less than a week to go!

    February 24, 2013

      woot, extra beer experience.

      February 24, 2013

  • Elizabeth F.

    Alright, you all need to simmer down. ; ) But seriously, let's do another one soon, perhaps a wing night? The following weekend I will be flying solo as well since Chris is going to South by Southwest for work...Eric, any ideas even though I'm on the gank/butthead list?

    February 24, 2013

  • Hunter

    Sadly I will be working until midnight. poop.

    February 21, 2013

    • Erik

      Awwwww...Responsibilitie­s suck. Sorry lady, next time.

      February 23, 2013

  • Erik

    Ok, I've set Barcade as our destination! This is still slightly tentative, depending on how many additional people, if any, RSVP. More is always merrier, but I don't want to push the seating limitations of the location. I'll be calling them this week to arrange some reserved seating, but you guys can definitely help out by updating your RSVPs beforehand if you find can't attend (not the hour before either) and trying to arrive as close to 7pm as possible. Otherwise, get excited - meetup in less than 2 weeks!

    February 19, 2013

  • Matthew

    Been feeling the itch to return.

    February 16, 2013

  • Matthew

    Barcade would be pretty cool, but I'd be showing up more for the people and conversation, than for the attractions. How about someplace quiet and relaxed, but still fun. Preferably Manhattan, as is a generally central location for the surrounding area. I think I know a place in Murray Hill; I just asked a friend for the name. I'd also be fine with a diner or pizza place; most meetups and munches I go to are held in the big open area in the backs of diners.

    February 16, 2013

  • Erik

    Ok, so we're agreed that Barcade might be a fun possible venue. My only concern is how busy/packed that it might get on a Saturday evening...anyone have any specific relevant experience? I'm thinking if we have <10 people, Barcade is a go, and >10, a no.

    February 12, 2013

    • Erik

      Lol @ Chucky Cheese...maybe some day. If it's anything like Dave & Busters, it would be horrible and never work tho.

      February 13, 2013

    • Erik

      But yeah, I was thinking the same thing lady - if most of us, or at least a few, get there AT 7pm, we ought to be able to catch & save a space.

      February 13, 2013

  • Caleb R.

    hey this sounds awesome either way, ive been inactive lately (school, work etc) but i should be joining the frenzy again soon, looking forward to meeting you all irl!

      February 12, 2013

  • Elizabeth F.

    I'm so there!!! What about Barcade in Brooklyn?

    1 · February 12, 2013

    • Mark

      This place looks cool, ya gotta be 21 or older to enter. Sorry Erik. ha ha and depending on how many people come we might have to reserve and take over!

      February 12, 2013

    • Bryan M.

      Barcode is an awesome place

      February 12, 2013

  • Kurwyne K.
