Thinking of bringing 'Secret Hitler' if I buy it this week.

might be hard to play in a bar setting, it requires a ton of conversing

Subbed. I've only been to one of these before but it was a pleasure meeting you all. I'm not sure if I can make it to this one but I'll definitely try.

Ach, confirmed I'm going to have to be in-studio for a work thing right at that time. Guess I'm out. Have to see y'all's smiling faces some other time.

How long do you all usually stay? I've been meaning to go to one of these for awhile, but wouldn't be able to be in that area until around 9.

Was thinking of possibly changing to a venue that's more off of a train so folks had less time to spend in the mess

(Like snow is gone, but the rain only made slush which is worse)

I realized that it's a bit of a trek to get down there myself when I saw it on the map. It sounds like a cool place all things considered so I wouldn't mind making the trek. Making damn sure I either wear boots or my Sketcher sneakers. I loaded the pics of past GAF meetups yore/my old photo album into my current microSD card.

I have last minute errands to do involving business with the dreaded USPS and shipping out stuff. Having to traverse puddles of slush only makes it worse. =/

Never done a GAF meetup but I'm down. I'll be doing a little shopping prior to joining up with you guys.

Bring your Sketchers/Trump shoes so we can properly discard it ;)

So some folks wanted to try this, no idea if it will actually work but here's a Slack channel
I'll sign out of my work Slack channel now and check it out. The email tag is broken/visible so you might want to edit your post.

Edit: I need to PM you my email to get an invite.

They've been doing quite well navigating through the snow. Not a single drop of water has gotten into them.

With errands done, heading home now to eat, drink a few beers, and get ready. I'll shoot an ETA once I'm en route.

Yeah didn't realize Slack was invite-only

Kind of defeats the purpose of folks trying to pop-in to see if we're moving if I need to be by to invite em anyhow!

Also who is for sure going out, to see if I need to start making moves

I'm 100% going.

Where are we meeting? Same place as in the OP?

C'est la vie. WhatsApp would be then if that's the case because either way, it needs some kind of info. I wouldn't mind using WhatsApp.

I think it's safe to say that the peeps who are in, are in. There's no windchill but the air is cold/nippy and requires wearing gloves. Since there's snow and slush everywhere, I'm going to keep it light on the drinking and will drink water once I've got a nice buzz. FYI Budweiser is nasty but I'm only drinking it because I got it for free.

Wish I could go, playing host with the family tonight. Maybe next time, then I might be able to bring another gaffer too.

And I just found out there's a $10 minimum for cards, so I'm stuck ordering more drinks. If anyone gets here get on my tab and give me the cash.

Edit: also this beer sucks

The fact that it's crowded and all is a given since people want to drink indoors tonight and it's also a *gasp* Saturday night. Weather conditions give people dumb excuses to drink.

I'm almost dressed. Going to take a few games in case anyone wants to play (granted we find a place with free tables) and other stuff in the bag. ETA will be 7:30ish.
