    Anybody going to Epic Game Day at AFK Tavern on the 30th? There's a number of tabletop, mtg, and other games being ran by various people including WotC staff, it's a lot of fun.

    Reservations just opened. I signed up for a D&D game and will probably be there regardless, hope to see some of you guys around too.

    Speaking of AFK, they're having a Zombie night on the 23rd, if that interests anybody. I'll be there that night, but for other reasons.

    Possibility of me being in Seattle by June if my transfer comes through for work. Not exactly sure when I will be arriving though, but I am totally interested in BBQ if I am up there by the 11th. I may even bring some Texas BBQ with.

    I'll wait to RSVP when I know for sure when I will be up there.

    So if the weather turns out to be ultra shit (it was one year, was kind of balls) I may do a last minute swap for this to be at my house, I could put a cover over my deck so we could BBQ in the rain.
    Be sure to check this thread the day before the BBQ so we have a good idea on the weather.

    So far we are 3-1 for the weather being good (I think it was 2008 with the shitty weather) so with any luck it will continue to be decent weather on this weekend.
    It was most defiantly 2008 that was the shit weather. It was my first time going. Managed to bring a cover for one of the tables.

    As always, PUT ME DOWN FOR ONE OMGWTFBBQ PLS

    I'M HALPING!

    I've put in a reservation request. I've still not been to the place (stuff pops up whenever friends have suggested it) so will be nice to see.

    4.28 // Aseethe, Gladiators Eat Fire, Sacrament Ov Impurity, Blood Hunger @ 2Bit
    4.29 // Sedna, Gravenloch, BaaL Beryth @ Galway Arms (Really good local bands; I've seen them already, but they worth going to again!)

    There's a few more...but if someone is interested in them, let me know if you want to meet up! I am mostly interested in black metal, doom/sludge, and some tech death. I'm sure there are gamer-metalheads out there.

    I signed up for a couple events, but never got a confirmation. I'll still probably show up and hang out for a while though, because I'm there a lot anyway.

    I JUST got my confirmation a day ago despite signing up weeks ago. And even if they haven't gotten to you, ya, still show up. I'm sure there will be plenty of on-the-spot stuff, and ppl to talk to. And hey, it's only a drive to Everett.

    I recently lived about a 5 minute drive from there actually, and have been a regular at AFK since the very day it opened. I'm not too far now, but I still go when I can, especially when I know most of the staff fairly well including a buddy of mine who works there.

    Yeah so I heard, I already moved at that point and didn't have a vehicle otherwise I would have stopped by. You should let us know next time you find yourself there.

    Also, if you're planning a LAN any time within the next couple months, don't pick the weekend of June 18th. I'm planning a big one. xD

    OH SHIT WHAT IS THIS IM CONFUSED

    LAN!!!!!!!
    May 20th-22nd

    4229926621_5d065ce11a.jpg

    Still haven't worked around the paypal issues... working on it (possibly for June ill be ready)

    So to break back into doing LANs again... We are doing a LANlite. By that I mean I will be providing nothing for the LAN. NOTHING I TELLS YA

    Other than the space, power, facilities, BBQ, and beer that is.
    I'm sure we can all pool together to go in on a dinner, or people can fend for themselves. ill have a BBQ gassed up and available.



    Heres the skinny.

    $10 + a 12pack or so of pop or water to share
    CASH ONLY


    If this is successful and there aren't a lot of noshows I might try it again. Depends how flaky people are.

    Maximum of 28 people.
    YOUR WORD IS YOUR BOND

    Usual house party rules apply:
    Spoiler:

    PEOPLE GOING:
    28/28
    Spoiler:

    For people who dont know, crash space is available. I have 7 sumos in the house plus a lot of floorspace. Bring towel/blanket/pillow.

    I will be at the LAN for sure. I have two jobs now which means yay monies, and I shouldn't have a problem getting the weekend off either.
    I also may have a +1 if that's cool (he's not on the forums but has been to your LAN's before).

    Unrelated, anybody going to the Symphony X / Powerglove show on Friday?

    Has anyone tried the new Card Kingdom gaming store and pub in Ballard? No website for the storefront yet, but it looks like they opened this week. If you've been - how does it compare to the AFK? Good spot for a forumer meetup?

    I think Mike (Gabe) posted/tweeted about it recently, saying it was awesome, so we might have to check it out some time. I'm a regular at AFK and know a good portion of the staff very well, so I'd have to hang out at the new place for a while before I could even consider it being better, but I would like to check it out.
