Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[NYC/NJ] hangout thread: so, what are you doing this weekend?

edited March 2013 in Debate and/or Discourse
So there are kind of a lot of us who like to hang out as a social group here in the Greater New York/6th Boro areas because hey, other people who also post on the Penny Arcade forums are cool. This thread is a more specific way to relay messages than to relay things via chat and hope everyone gets them, so post ideas or info about plans and what have you, and we'll add em here.

We have a small contingent of forumers, primarily from the D&D section, who get together on a fairly regular basis and new folks or visitors from strange and foreign lands (like Philadelphia or New Orleans or Seattle or SE++, or wherever) are always welcome to join us. We love to eat new-- er meet new people! Yes, yes. Meet.

Going to be in the NY/NJ area and want to hang out with people you may have met on the forums? Yes? Jolly good then.



additional pertinent information will be added to the header when specific events are planned, which will include who to PM for their address info or phone number in the event that you don't already have it, when the time comes.



So the unofficial list of people who live in the area and hang out is being developed here in this thread, if you want to be on said list post here or drop me a pm; this way people don't feel like they are left out of fun stuff when it happens.

    You're usually just grounded for a length of time, right? Like two weeks or something, or no video games for a month.

    I'm in JC so put me on the list. Have barely met any PAers due to being in Baltimore for the last 9 years!

    I dunno. I get too drunk when I hang out with yall and make an ass out of myself. I suppose if I either civilize myself or you fuckers are less of a bad influence on me, I will be ungrounded.

    I mean, the message you left on my phone the day I wasn't able to hang was really uncouth, but grounded?

    IR and I are nearby, but we are the grumpy old people of the meetups. Always cutting out early and not showing up for weekday stuff. But we still like to be invited in case we can make it.

    Damn it, it's fucking noon. I demand to know if Yami shit on a desk yet.

    This is the generic Deebaser timeline:

    6:00: "Dudes, let's just chill and have some drinks. But listen if you guys are doing any of that pansy shit later like karaoke, I think I'm just gonna go home."
    6:45: "You should try all these drinks man they are amazing here. I've had one of each so far."
    7:30: "Did I really have that many drinks? Guess I need another one."
    8:15: "Fallout: New Vegash isthe besht game EVARRRR!!!!"
    9:00: "FUCK I RAN OUT OF CIGARETTES AGAIN."
    9:30: "Karaoke! KARAOKE! Let's go to karaoke!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    10:00: "Since U Been Gone :whistle:"

    Okay, I made the last one up. Never heard him sing Kelly Clarkson. I don't think.

    Dee's typical night goes: do something fiancee wouldn't approve of, hide from fiancee.

    Which doesn't sound funny, but he tries to hide behind like, chain-link fences and empty beer bottles.

    @EggyToast : you are a year older than nexus so I would say you will be fine. we are in the Hamilton Park area so we are a little ways out but not far. what brings you to the 6th borough? (you're over by the college, right? I may be answering my own super nosy question here)

    Hamilton Park, fancy! I moved here via a combination of job, relationship, and then relationship ending. But I'm about a 10min walk from the Journal Square PATH stop which goes over to Newport, although for anything later I could just drive since traffic isn't bad after rush hour getting close to the tunnel.

    || Flickr — || PSN: EggyToast
  • tapeslingertapeslinger utter Yog-Sothothery Registered User regular
    parking over by us is a grab bag of fun and hilarity, I am sooo glad I do not drive. Newport and Grove are more or less equidistant so convenience varies mostly with the weather. (Newport is better in snowytimes, Grove is a nicer walk without a shitty mall crammed into it.)

    And needless to say we are in the mostly-unfancy part of that neighborhood, ha! you should come out to 9th and Coles or White Star with us some night or something.

    Good timing on my part to make a big deal about hanging out; my parents are in town this and the next weekend, and then I'm heading down to bmore. Do things happen weekday evenings?

    || Flickr — || PSN: EggyToast
  • tapeslingertapeslinger utter Yog-Sothothery Registered User regular
    sometimes; it is certainly not out of the question. Those tend to be smaller get-togethers because there are not as many folks who can make it, but it's not uncommon.
