For those of you who don't get over to the forums often, I've posted a CTA for a DC Metro Area Meetup in the Eve-O Out of Game Events and Gatherings
forum. The meetup will take place on August 7 at a little watering hole a mere stone's throw from DC's Tenlytown/American University Metro.
The operational details:
The Date: Tuesday, August 7 2012
Start Time: 18:00 EST
The Place: Public Tenley
The Address: 4611 41st St NW, Washington, DC 20016
A handful of brave capsuleers have already stepped to the line for the operation. Alekseyev Karrde is being lobbied heavily to bring chocolate cupcakes. I can't commit on his behalf, but I hear he's a mean hand with the frosting spatula.
Head on over to the forum to RSVP or do so in game so I'll know how much space to reserve.
One more vote for cupcakes!ReplyDelete
I'll be there in full Priest Mode; it will be fairly difficult to miss me. :)
See everyone there!
I'll try my best to be there. I shall look out for neckbeards, priests and cupcakes....ReplyDelete
I'll be there. I do not have a neck beard, but I am tall and Scottish. Besides PK knows what I look like.ReplyDelete
There was a good turn-out of DC area capsuleers for the meet-up. Mission accomplished.ReplyDelete
All in all a pretty good cross section of the Eve Community showed up. Priest Kristoph showed up in full priest regalia as promised. He brought back-up with him in the form of his corp-mates Jeb Bute and Dendel Hypermach from R-K Industries (Quixotic Hegemony) as well as capsuleer emeritus Darian Eldath. CSM member and Noir Mercenary Group CEO Alekseyev Karrde put in an appearance wearing a stylish Noir logo shirt (note to self: Need to get the Noir logo coffee mug). Alek's legendary cupcakes were sadly missed but, fortified with beer and chicken wings, we bravely soldiered on. Hedonox/Gold Geisha (he of many names) from Silver Octopus (Infernal Octopus) waxed rhapsodic regarding his gaming station, which he's set up to imitate the main control console for the Nostromo from the movie Alien, complete with multiple screens and overhead switches. Shimozu Shinta from Northstat Cabal (Fatal Ascension) came in all the way from Baltimore. He and Sinna Sec from Valar Morulis (presently of Gentlemens' Agreements, soon to be of Goonswarm Federation) led the CFC cheering section. With no NC[DOT] or SoCo pilots in attendance, the CFC jeers in that direction went unanswered. Redlack of lowsec's Inner Shadow (Nightsong Directorate) held forth on how, when it comes to FCing, it's better to be lucky than good. The ever-genial Proximus Altima out of Un4seen Development and Roger Lynx from Pew Pew Inc (Altair-Zania Ventures) filled out the table, with Redlack's young lady friend braving the cloud of Eve chatter to bring our Jolly band to a lucky thirteen.
As the event broke up it was agreed that another meet up was in order and that it should take place early in the Fall. The torch of meet-up host has been duly passed to Priest Kristoph who will make arrangements for the next gathering, this time in Silver Spring.
Thanks to all who took the time to attend. It was great meeting all y'all, and I'm looking forward to an even bigger turn-out in the Fall.
I agree with everything that was said. :)ReplyDelete
Also, having the USA beat China in Women's Beach Volleyball on the TV was a nice touch.
It was great to meet Mord and everyone else, and a fun night all 'round.
