    Thanks to everyone coming along to the pub crawl, I had a fantastic time, and it seemed like everyone had a good time.

    Big ups to atlus for the idea and execution of the triwizard tourney, i'm going to go play games now

    Good times! Met really cool people. Drank WAY too much. Where is my prize??? I wonder if I am the only girl to complete all the challenges?

    Who ever thought up the Firewater shot is evil. I dedicate this hangover to you...

    I'll post when I get my pics up.

    Apparently when I got home after the crawl I managed to go on xbox live and buy galaga legions (I had been under the assumption I did NOT actually do this, but the fact that I now own it and have a very terrible high score says otherwise.)

    industrialgirl, I know there was at least one other girl in our group to complete all the challenges, not sure about the other groups.

    Here's a pic after the hands free shot event. Unfortunately the iPhone is ill equipped for taking photos in such dim lighting, but it sort of shows the chaos. I also took some video of people taking the shots, but those came out even worse. I think industrialgirl has some decent pics of the action.

    The day after was not a pleasant experience. I didn't compete in the challenges, but I think the $5 pitchers of PBR are what did me in. My stomach no longer trusts my judgement, but we're on speaking terms again today.

    Just wanted to say hope the crawl was good, and put in apologies for not showing. In the end we couldn't make it after the dinner as we'd had a hectic couple of days and were just too beat to go out again.

    The crawl was good. The secret challenge of "get piss drunk" was accomplished by all.

    Pics will be forthcoming once I've landed back home. Also, if you were at the second QA panel the First Annual Triwizard Drinking Tournament was brought up by a fellow wizard. I didn't get a chance to run over and tell Gabe & Tycho what it was exactly because they seemed intrigued by the idea. I'll be firing them off an email when I get home detailing everything as well a gallery of the photos taken that night. If you have any to contribute post them here, PM me, or whatever.

    Next year will be bigger, better, and maybe have some celebrity witches and wizards?

    The only other picture I took and uploaded that night was of my face in the mirror when I got home, and I have no idea why I did that (possibly to prove I still knew how to use my phone and send pictures to photobucket?)

    Things I just remembered about the pub crawl: trying to convince the hobos at Dicks to Rick Roll group A. This included trying to teach them the song, and also dancing. They were singing hobos in the first place, and I guess I just wanted to put it to good use.

    Atlus, The Triwizard Drinking Tournament was fucking EPIC! I hope we have this again next year because it was a GREAT way to cap off a night after the Pre-PAX Dinner. Maybe we can combine the two? I for one, loved getting the chance to dress up and enjoy a night on the town (especially when that is combined with getting completely toasted :P). If you're thinking of doing this again next year, same theme or different? If it's the same, ElectricTurtle has agreed to dress up as Professor Snape, and I would again reprise my roll as a Slytherin student. BTW, does anyone have any pics of me from the tourney? I showed up at Barca and, er, ended at Chapel Bar with Group A. Plz post if available. Kthx, internets.

    Next year's plan is to combine it with the dinner but the problem is the time we had was barely enough to hit every bar and get everyone drunk. We'll have to start at the same time or earlier because even though they knew we were coming the bars could not handle us. Also we will be doing 4 groups next year, each one a different house and if ET's coming as Snape he should totally head boy the Slytherin house.

    Unfortunately I have no photos past Barca. Downing that pitcher at Cafe Met was enough for me and yet I still went on.

    I'm really, really glad that everyone had a good time and thank you all for the positive feedback. I've learned a lot this year and everything will be bigger and better next year.

    haha, storytime.

    But nah, I was doin the thrusting because I didn't know where to go but wanted to look important.

    ... that probably summarized most of my past relationships.

    It was more about the nickname anyway, was there even a reason it was him other than he being an explorer?

    I'm pretty sure I said something along the lines of "So I'm Magellan now?" after I got the map, and it stuck. So if anything, I should be kicking my own ass if I hate the name so much, which I don't.

    We had each others back! It was great to meet you and ET, I was sad we all couldn't see more of each other but things snowballed for me come Sunday and I was just fortunate to catch my plane home. You guys were a trip highlight, actually.

    Talk about getting the convention started on the right foot.

    Had a blast once I managed to find the Triwiz tournament itself, which is an adventure I'll have to tell about later. There were trolls and ogres and shit. Darkness and danger, until I found the safety of the drunken wizard mob.

    All I had with me was my crappy camera phone, but I managed to get a shot of the Triwizards, pardon the grainy:
    triwizards.jpg

    And the Luchador dude who's name I didn't catch. But why would I need to? He's a freakin' Luchador.
    triwiz_luchador.jpg

    The Chapel that you speak of was quite a place, from what I remember.
    Here's a hint: don't show up late for the tournament if you don't want Headmaster Atlus to make you do extra credit work. The "two shots at once" challenge was akin to trying to chug gasoline. The Headmaster must have noticed my face turning a sickening shade of viridian, because he bought me a chaser that kept my throat from spontaneously combusting. Hail the mercy of Gryffindor.

    This was perfect preparation for the four-legged race I got to participate in with Electric Turtle and Asta. It seemed like we must have walked for miles, and ET just about had me convinced that ADOM was superior to Nethack by the end of it. Heresy! But sweet, sweet gaming nerd-speak. How rarely I get to indulge in such during my normal life.

    In spite of the critical hangover the next morning, I'd say that Day Zero was a terrifying success. My thanks go out to everyone who had a hand in putting this event together.

    Oh awesome you got a pic of the buddy holly glasses. I lost them at chapel when I couldn't tell if there was a mirror or if it was another part of the bar. They ended up getting stuck behind the bench and I couldn't quite fit back there to retrieve them. I still think I could have managed if the bouncer didn't start yelling at me.
