D*C 2011 Pub Crawl Protocol

The Pub Crawl is growing each year. With that in mind, I have compiled and list of suggestions, guidelines and general rules for the Poor Man's Pub Crawl.

Suggestions….
> Make sure you have eaten a decent dinner and given it time to settle before the Crawl begins.
> Limit yourself to one drink per room.

Conduct…
> If you become too drunk or obnoxious, you will be asked to leave the Crawl and you will not be invited back the next year.
> Please remember you are in someone else’s hotel room. Respect them, their property and the hotel property.

Protocol…
> If you drop out of the Crawl before completing all the stops, you will drop to the bottom of next years Crawl room list.
> Each stop will be approximately 30 minutes. We will have an official timer. Time will start when the official timer arrives (not the first person) and end when the official timer calls ‘TIME’. At that time everyone must head to the next stop.

Judges…
> If you do not complete the entire Crawl, your votes will be disqualified and you will not be asked to judge the next year.
> If a room has multiple drinks being served for their theme, I suggest you sample each drink instead of having a full glass.

Geek Night at Kyle's

Last Saturday night, Kyle hosted his first Geek Night in his new house and it was a smashing success. It was attended by Jesse, Josh, Me, Darrell, Donna, Harris, Liz, DTag, Melissa, Zach and assorted others.

There were games, TV, food and PINBALL! Kyle has a fantastic pinball machine in his den. It really was the hit of the gathering!




I'm not quite sure how or why it happened but at sometime, it became all about the feet..


But that is great lead in to the shoes. Late last week, I received the Mermaid shoes. I ordered them back in June and was beginning to get a little worried about them. I knew Donna was going to Geek Night so I brought hers with me. I could not wait to see someone wearing them. They are 5 1/2 inch clear heels with what looks like water and goldfish in the 2 inch clear toe platform. What do ya think???



I LOVE them!

The rest of the evening was spent watching Dr. Horrible, socializing and playing games - Catch Phrase, Cranium and Apples to Apples. Unfortunately, Zach ended up on our team. I say unfortunately because Zach is good at these games and really enjoys playing them. On the other hand, his team mates were either tipsy or missing. At the least the one that bailed got a date out of it.


And a good time was had by all!

D*C 2011 – 36 Days away and counting!

As always there is lots going on this year. There will be the traditional Thursday Night Dinner, the Friday Night Poor Man’s Pub Crawl, the Black Bunny Crew will march in the parade on Saturday morning and the Masquerade viewing on Sunday night - plus the thousands of other convention events going on during the weekend.

I have heard from some people about Thursday night dinner. Right now there is a three-way tie between Meehan’s, Max Lager’s and Benihana all close to the three main host hotels. I will need to know a pseudo-concrete number by August 22 to make sure the restaurant has room for us. If you haven’t let know you are going, please do as soon as possible.

The Poor Man’s Pub Crawl is currently FULL. We have seven rooms participating and expect approximately 35 people to walk the crawl. Due to the large numbers this year, ONLY people associated with a Pub Crawl room and judges will be walking the Crawl. I will be tapping a few people (very few) as impartial judges. If you are interested, let me know.

The Black Bunny will be walking in the D*C parade on Saturday morning. I am hoping for a big turnout. If you plan on walking with us, let me know and I will add you to the list. I just want to make sure I have enough parade ribbons for everyone.

The Masquerade viewing on Sunday night will probably be planned…… sometime that Sunday morning. It will be word of mouth, or email, or text, or Facebook, or Twitter, or Google+ but it will not be on MySpace. I really don’t know yet.
