Hey everyone. Since we've got a little more than two months until Apollo comes to visit, I wanted to reguage the interest in another Washington DC Mini-meet-up. Apollo will be coming into town 16-23 August so I suggest Saturday, August 22 at two pm. I further suggest that it be held at Piratz Tavern (wonderful place and perfect for us).

If anyone has other suggestions as far as date, time or place go, feel free to post them here.

Someone (Diverdown, I believe) suggested in the other thread that we go in garb (har har about the garbless comment). To those not in the rennie or SCA type circles, that means in costume. I have no problems with this and believe it or not, we would not look out of place at Piratz Tavern since the wait staff is all in garb. If the answer to garb is a resounding "no" that's cool, too.

The last meet-up was great fun. The ambience was wonderful. The company was warm and congenial. The conversation....we had some great conversations. We talked about our hobby for hours and did not even notice the passing of time.

If you're interested in coming to a DC mini meet-up, please post here. If the date or time is wrong for you, please note that (that's especially true for you, Apollo since the rest of us can get to gether any time and you only have a limited time in DC).

I'm hoping to put in a reservation some place by the second week of July so that gives us a month to hash out details and then a month of counting down and waiting.

Hope to see everyone,

~Kyriel Windsong

Woot Kyriel!!!! Another meetup!

I can try to be there whenever it is. I'll be working midnights at that time so I'll have to do some sleep/schedule wrangling to be able to do it so will need definate dates/times asap. I shall most likely be sans garb, but again with camera!

Hopefully I'll be able to make this one, still too far ahead to call. I get back in town on the 16th so I might be busy with stuff I need to get done before classes start up again though, :/. Oh, and count me in as a no on garb. :P

I don't do dress up.

I am going to try to make it up for this. I've begged Apollo for event help way to many times to not show up and buy him/her a drink when I have the chance :-)

I don't have a full pirate costume, but am game for at least pseudo-dress up.

I'll attend of course. And if the consensus is no-garb, I'll only wear my hat.

I have garb myself and will likely bring it.

However...the guest of honor has as yet to make an appearance in this, the new thread.

/e calls plaintively, "Apollo.....does this time work for you at all?"

Ok, Saturday 2pm is fine.
Subject to baggage allowance, I could probably be persuaded to be a pirate for the day!

Oh yipee!

If anyone else is interested in coming to our second meet-up in August, please post here. I'll need some sort of rough estimate to give them when I make the reservation.

That being said, drop ins are welcome. We had several last time.

Baggage??? Why not just wear the outfit on the plane?

Yet another gratuitous bump to keep this as close to the first page as I can get.

And a general update: I intend to make the reservation not this coming week but next week, probably in the middle of the week after I get off work. Before then I will edit the first post with everyone who has said they are coming definitively as well as all of those maybes.

Hope to see everyone there!

It would be useful to know numbers, as we're hoping to bring a few goodies with us. :)

Count me in.

Oh, and because the world really is too small, I was informed by one of my friends on my Ireland trip last week that his sister is a waitress there, and we should try to sit in Cassie's section. (With Thud being the backup if she isn't working then. I wonder if I wrote that right... Thad maybe?)

Last time we went to Piratz Tavern, we sat at the big long table (don't ask...you'll see it when you get there) and had PiratePoppet and Thudd as our servers. I don't remember their real names, unfortunately, any more than I can remember the real names of the other people that I met there. Strangely enough, their forum and/or pirate names seem to have stuck with me. At that time of day (in the middle of a Saturday afternoon) there weren't a whole lot of people there so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I suspect that there may be more in August.

I'll also make the list while I'm thinking about it.

Ok, so I should be a definite. Count me and the boy (Scurvypanda) in. Also, its Dewdlebug, not Desterbug. Although, I think I will call him that from now on!

I've known Poppet for a bit longer, and I have seen her real name in print. I don't know it, though -- she's always "Poppet" to me when she's in garb. (I probably wouldn't recognize her in civvies.)
