    I'm in for this new LAN and the BBQ. I hope we have as great weather this year for the BBQ as we did last year.

    Yeah stop answering for me! Hive mind, no thank you!

    I might come by the Golden Gardens BBQ for awhile, but will be busy later that evening.

    And as for the LAN, it's way too fucking nice in the summer to sit in a garage all weekend! Although tent parties and BBQ sound nice, and I still have a negative beer tally..... For now, though, I'm leaning towards "FU I'm going to the beach". I also want to plan a camping trip over summer sometime, and... possibly a party on or around a particular holiday...

    pffft IF ONLY THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE WEEKEND IN THE SUMMER

    owait

    summer LANs usually dont involve gaming the entire time anyway, it certainly doesn't involve a beach though. SO YOU GO TO YOUR BEACH We will have lots of fun playing l4d2 campaigns :P

    Yeah, how many weekends do we have over summer? 7? Certainly less that the fucking ENDLESS WINTER! Will there be outside games? Non-dungeon time?

    I enjoy winter. Summer is way too hot.

    I go outside far more in the winter/spring fall/winter transitions when its sunny with 55-65 degrees.

    Speaking of enjoying the outside weather. How about we do some cheap weekend boozing with the wonderful happy hour. We had a few awesome Saturday evenings last year and I think we can do it again.

    Generally 5-7pm and we can have one on the 29th of this month. We can start at The Triple Door and end up at Shortys. Perhaps there will even be more pirate than last spring Thanks eyeshuh :)

    Is anyone else interested in cheap booze and food?

    Edit: The Triple Door Happy hour starts at 4.

    Spoiler:

    Holy shit, it's Az. This must have been 1 of the 2 events he ever attended! I think the Triple Door and Shorty's are a good idea, but they're way too far apart! I suggest we split them up and do two separate ones, centered more closely together. All I remember from the last pirate walk is "how much further and why am I not drinking right now".

    Moe, maybe someone can bring a laptop to these things and we can webcam everything. :P

    A stop between The Triple Door and Shortys is a good idea. A stop with a patio. I remember reading about a rooftop bar nearby. That would be awesome if we have a sunny day. I will do some research when I get home and find us a good one with a good happy hour between The Triple Door and Shortys.

    It's been done before for some events, there's no reason why we couldn't do it again. I could even volunteer the laptop, webcam, and internet connection, no matter where we are!

    And there wasn't any sprinkler parties! Because we lived in a desert! And the mosquitoes were as big as your hand!

    That would be cool Coldbrew. Some of the tables at the Triple Door are long and thin. The laptop can be at the head of the table :D

    Also, ignore Ash. I think he's having flashbacks. Booze will cure those Ash! I've got plenty extra if you need buddy.

    I can do the BBQ, but I can't do the LAN party. The LAN party cuts into some very important gaming of another sort.

    EDIT: Happy Hour is WIN. Count me in. Just need to know when and where.

    EDIT 2: I suck at typing.

    I have WAY more public events though because I enjoy them more.

    I'm down for the BBQ but will probably take off mid-dayish to go to the Roller Derby bout that night.

    I also like the idea of a Happy Hour get together.

    I was looking into a second spot for us to stop at between the Triple Door and Shortys. Theres only 6 blocks there and I didn't find a good one toward the middle. However I did find The Zig Zag Cafe which has happy hour between 5 and 7. It also has a second story patio area and just looks like a cool place for Happy Hour. This is looking good for a second stop. Please let me know if you've been there and don't think it will work.

    http://zigzagseattle.com

    May 29th - Happy Hour - The Triple Door - 4 pm - The Triple Door is at 216 Union Street and it's Happy Hour is 4-6.
