Some highlights from last night off the top of my head.
  • Jipan drunk out of his mind. How many beers did you have? I only saw you with two beers.
Ah yes, the million dollar question. It started out with a single Guinness. Aparently, jon bones wanted to close out his tab so he bought me a drink (I owe you one). That drink was a tonic IIRC. That drink got me hammered. That drink led to me taking whatever beer was left over in cups and drinking it. Including shamelessly stealing some of number47's drink when he wasn't looking and finishing it off when we were leaving The Gaf. Plus finishing off smokeymicpot's beer. That was the hammering point.

The 2 Rum and Cokes that I had at Latitude (one courtesy of captmcblack who I also owe one; the other one I bought despite El_Sloth insisting on buying me one) led to the following list of my drunken activities in no specific chronological order:
  • Leaving a wake of drunken posts on GAF; see this thread for proof of that; see the Times Square camera thread; see -PXG-'s tag thread. Conversely, search for posts by my user names within the last several hours and prepare to laugh.
  • Stumbling through the streets while cursing out the NYPD as we walked to Times Square from Latitude.
  • Embarrassing jon bones when we left The Gaf and yelling out... Let's just say it involves picking up a woman and hooking up. I'm not going to say exactly what it was because I don't want to offend anybody. To everyone who was there, you know what it was.
  • Laughing hysterically while walking next to Tashi because jon bones proceeded to do damage control to the women who outside The Gaf who heard my drunken tirade. His face had me laughing and I'm still chuckling right now as I type this post.
  • Miraculously walking straight whenever we passed by the cops despite being drunk. I kept telling people to walk straight whenever that happened.
  • The reason why smokeymicpot and I didn't appear in the Earth Cam: Having to pee, proceeding to stumbling down 8th avenue all the while, drunkedly telling smokeymicpot not to pee on a building because there were "f'ing cameras watching us" (my words) every now and then. I managed to normally ask one of the guys who worked at the pizzeria if we have to pay to use the bathroom; he said no. A chick was in the bathroom, I banged on the door and told her that I need to pee. Long story short, we peed and proceeded to stumble back up to Times Square. The dude behind the counter looked kind of scared when he saw us stumble into the pizzeria
  • Ordering a Big Mac meal without slurring a word. The only bad part was that I lost my Unlimited Metrocard while taking out the money.
  • Drunkedly swaying while we were eating upstairs to several Gaffers' horror. They wanted to take a picture/record me. I told them not to do it despite being in said drunken state.
  • Proceeding to say that I'm so hardcore of a Gaffer that I have a God Hand song as my ring tone and proceeding to blast Gene's Rockabye for a good several seconds while everyone was silent.
  • Yelling out...unpleasant desires in Spanish to chicks that were walking to and from the bathroom. Only two Gaffers knew what I said.
  • Taking a leak in a stall while two other women peed in the adjacent stalls and saying "Have a good night ladies" as I left the bathroom. Before Girl GAF starts going crazy on me, no I'm not a peeping Tom; the stalls were closed and even then I still wouldn't have looked.
  • Going to a nearby bar and proceeding to slowly sober up by drinking water as several Gaffers bailed out by then.
  • On that same note, drunkedly asking and proceeding to take a few pictures with EvilLore before he left along with -PXG-.
  • Getting into a cab with -PXG-, Ed, and I forgot the Gaffer's name. We then proceeded to talk crap about several things including me saying that "New Jersey smells like shit" while poking fun of -PXG-.
  • Sobering up at Ed's nice ass apartment near Wall Street, while eating some delicious peanut butter cookies and drinking water with -PXG-. We totally had a bromantic moment having not seen each other in over two years similar to Wellington and EvilLore's bromantic reunion.
  • Getting into a cab with -PXG-,talking about life and catching up on what's happened in 2.5 years.
  • Lastly, departing from -PXG- like a romance film and proceeding to have a random dude talk to me about women knowing where we keep our cards (in reference to me talking out my wallet and trying to look for my Unlimited Metrocard) and asking if me if I'm o.k. to which I said "I had a very long night."

As for pictures, I'm gonna wrap this post up. I don't want it to be a massive post, so I'll wait until someone else posts then proceed to show my version of the events that transcribed last night. The quality of the pics are as bad they were of the Monday's pics that I took at Third and Long. I don't want to double post out of respect.

Forgot to mention: So to answer the million dollar question, I survived the NYC GAF meet up and I lived to tell about it. The best part was, despite being drunk, my brain was doing all the work and and not the alcohol. I didn't get a hangover, I most certainly didn't with any headaches, and I'm still here in one piece.

i for one am surprised that a forum dedicated to video game discussion would have a meetup in which the members were dudes

dudes at a gaming meetup is just ludicrous, imho
Being just a group of dudes is neither a permanent nor in changeable state. ESPECIALLY in a New York bar. I am an ugly fat married man and women in New York bars talk to ANYONE they suspect might be even remotely engaging. I am not disappointed that's how they started the evening. Only that they finished the evening unaltered.

Jipan, you were fucking gone when we went to Ed's place downtown. You weren't making ANY sense, whatsoever. Drunken Spanglish babbling. It was truly hilarious, at least what little I remember. I felt so bad for the cab driving, putting up with our dumb shit. Oh well...

I realized that I had a total of 10 drinks last night.

A bottle of Sapporo at Spice (Thai restaurant)

Some Jameson (neat) and a pint of Blue Point at the Old Town Bar

4 rum and cokes at The GAF West.

2 rum and cokes at Latitude

1 rum and coke at that steak house (courtesy of Ed)

Anyone know what the place was called?

Illusion shattered. Fuck my life.

Everyone was super cool. NYC-GAF representing in style. Everyone kept the alcohol flowing and I never had the chance to go buy my own drinks after the night began. A secret junior even hooked me up with some pizza?! Much love to everyone, treating me so damn well.

I rear naked choked PXG three times, halfway judo tossed jon bones, and tackled jason in the street (busting my lip when he crashed into me on the ground), which very nearly got me arrested by the NYPD. This is how I joke around, sorry guys, hope you're all undamaged :lol

Come to the Toronto meet up and we'll get you all the maple syrup and milk in bags you've ever dreamt of.
MILK IN BAGS.

Oh, and poutine.

Dude, I told you, we should have gotten arrested. I was somewhat serious too...amidst my drunken stupor. What a night that would have been. Would have been worth it, just for the shits and giggles and infinite laughs we'd give GAF for years to come.

Although they wouldn't let us, how great would it have been to post a picture of us, in a jail cell and post it here. Nothing would ever top that. EVER.


I had 2 shots if whiskey and like 13 beers or shit
See, that's how you do it. Start off hard and then cruise your way through the night.

Sapporo was just something light to go with my dinner. My brother got me Blue Point and some Jameson to get things going. Just the right amount of octane to set the mood right.

The bartender at The GAF was great. Drinks were good and cheap too. Only thing I didn't like was he put straws my drink. I hate straws. Fuck straws. What am I? 10? Do I look like some fucking college girl with some goddamn rainbow road ass drink? I'm a man damnit.

Latitude drinks were alright, but cost too much for what you got. No biggie. That last drink I had at that steak house was superb. Then again, would you expect less from (what appeared to be) a joint like that?

Ahh, shit. I just realized that I forgot to give you your drink. I got you a beer when you were playing pool and put it down on a table- have no idea what happened after that. Next time!

Let me also attest that Jipan was a drunken mess when we headed downtown. I probably hear 50% of what he said and understood 25%, haha. Glad to hear everybody made it back safe.

Also Jon MF-ing Bones.

That was St. Andrews... I think. There is a dreamlike quality to most of the night now.

It's pics-or-it-didn't-happen time.

I'm linking it to an album because there's too many pics to post. It's in chronological order starting from when I got to The Gaf, ending with the gorgeous view from Ed's apartment of what looks like the Holland Tunnel. Enjoy.

I have to say I had a blast. It was a pleasure to finally meet the bad ass who survived falling approximately 30-40 feet in the Grand Canyon and posted about it on GAF afterwards. As well as pulling through an Emergency stop at the ER in order to catch a flight to New York to meet some of the many people that make up his forum.

EvilLore, you're an extremely great and humble man, so thanks for coming out and making the meet up something to remember. It's nice to have a bad ass like you owning GAF. You are the man hands down. Keep up the good work; we'll keep on believing.

Shoutout to all the many people who showed up. Jason for being the great host that he is, jon bones for keeping it real, -PXG- for finally coming out of Jersey to throw it down as well as the rest of you fine dudes I mentioned and make up NYC GAF. It was truly a pleasure to meet all of you, we'll keep in touch. Remember folks, East Coast is the best coast. I'd love to do it again next month.

The cab driver was visibly cringing from all the curse words that were flying out. It was pretty funny. I also forgot to mention that I also drank some Mamajuana that I had been brewing for well over a year as pre game before going down to the bar. That was composed of Brugal Titanium as well as Brugal Dorado. It was pretty strong.You and I need to get shred some people on Gears and hang out more often. Unless we're gonna wait another 2 years before meeting up.

Lmao! You're killing me with the laughter. The straws are so you could protect your teeth from the alcohol/acid. It's the same reason why dentists always say to drink soda from a straw.

I could see the thread from jail now: NYC GAF in Jail-Age. I was seriously saying that I didn't want my mother to be worried nor see me in jail as fun as that would have been. We could have had EvilLore make a Paypal donation page and have GAF bail us out.

When I get drunk, I'm about 10 times more honest and louder than when I'm sober. So you guys saw a whole other side to me that my brothers unfortunately have to put up with when I get hammered. Thanks for putting up with me guys.

jon bones, where are you at man. Let us know that you're alive. You've already died once for our sins. Can't be dying again man. You might be Jesus, but you're not Goku.
