As suggested by BikeyGirl, we’ll have a completely informal get together at OTB on December 20.

There will be absolutely no programming and food and beverages are left up to the individual wallet.

OTB saved a keg of Pedal Pale Ale for a special occasion and so they’ve decided to share it with us that night! YES! And all burgers are $5 on Mondays.

So come out and meet some of your fellow message board users.

I’ll bring some name tags so you can write your message board name (and maybe even your real name) on it.

December 20, OTB.

7-ish. Be there.

Or be somewhere else and have less fun.

Facebook event please?


Lolly

Done! Facebook invite is here!

I invited a few people but not very many so everyone is welcome to invite everyone else.

It’s an open event so if you didn’t get invited on FB it’s probably because we’re not FB friends or because it’s Sat. morning and why am I not asleep!

I’m excited because I’ve been lax on getting real food in my house, and it will be awesome to eat something that’s not bread/pepperoni rolls (yuck.)

Please come out to this if you can. We’re working with OTB to put together a number of items to raffle off to help with the medical bills for Nate/Nathan who was attacked the other night who is the main cook at OTB

Any idea on the price(s) of raffle tickets?


ejwme
Participant

what would be super nice would be if we could somehow set up a permanent fund of some type for this kind of thing, with an annual raffle (or a couple times a year) or something, so that people are covered. Maybe not 100%, but some.

What would be even better would be if nobody ever needed it.


Lolly

I’m not sure about the cost of raffle tickets yet, but a ridiculous number of things have been donated… I was just notified that there are now THREE bikes!… So bring some people out tonight so we can pack this raffle and raise some significant money.

hey, anyone going from bloomfield/lawrenceville who could help me to not get lost in oakland? I’m looking at google maps, and the quick way seems to be through oakland, but oakland still makes me nervous.

anyone who accepts this should know that I am the slowest person in the world on a bike, especially if there’s a hill.

Even if it’s downhill? It’s pretty much flat to downhill from Bloomfield… Where in Bloomfield are you roughly? I would ride with you but I’m actually in South Side right now…I could possibly ride home with you though.

when are you planning on going? at 7 or later? if later i can meet you. but i will be at the lifecycles screening until 7:45-8. my knee is all jacked up so slow is fine with me right now.

@Noah… I’m not sitting by you… :)


Erica

Even if it’s downhill?

haha, I know oakland and bloomfield don’t have many hills, but I’m pretty much the worst with most inclines. Until recently, I had trouble getting across bridges, and it’s still not my favorite thing to do.

I’m on liberty, just a few blocks up from church brew works.I don’t know when I’m planning on being there, I guess most any time is okay.


gimpPAC

ah I thought you were on the upper side of Bloomfield… yeah you’ll have a little bit of an incline if you go up through Oakland, but the uphills pretty much end after you get up Liberty. Were you planning on going through Panther Hollow then across the Hot Metal Bridge?


Erica
Participant
#

that’s where google’s taking me :)

colin, I could probably wait up until then, I forgot that I need to shower/dry my hair, so I won’t be ready to leave for a bit. what time and where do you want to meet?


gimpPAC

Ok! Be sure to bring your bright lights… the Hollow is unlit (I forgot my head lamp so I’ll be going back up the shared sidewalk on 5th unless I can jump in on a caravan afterward).

See yinz there! :)

Come on down Yinz!!!!!

I’m here! And Nathan –looking slightly better– is here!!!


Erica

so I’m getting dressed and heading out. I scrawled down directions, but I’m gonna get SO lost. It’ll be fun, though.

Bah, why do I always work when cool things are happening and not go to cool things when I’m not working…


Erica

I’d like to apologize for being awkward, haha.

@ RubberFactory did you have a good time? Thats all that matters!

It was great to see such an awesome turn out! I had a good time!


Erica
Participant
#

yeah, good foosd, nice people. I just get really nervous when there’s a crowd or a large group of people.


racedoug

I understand, I’m on the shy side myself. I did the stand in the corner thing(actually by the speaker)…lol. It was lots of fun tho.

I take it you did NOT get lost?
