Visiting RTP / Cary, NC -- Mini S&T Thursday, January 31!

Pages

Hey all. I'm planning a visit to Cary, NC at the end of January. I know there's a pretty strong contingent of Goodjers in the RTP area, and wondered if there might be any interest in a midweek gathering either Wednesday or Thursday night (1/30 or 1/31) for some barbeque, beer, and/or board games. Or whatever. I don't know the area at all, so I'm up for anything.

All of these things sound acceptable. Let's all meet at Stone's house.

But, in all seriousness, I'm sure a mini S&T could happen. With drinks and BBQ and stuff. Games.

Ah, excellent! Well, everyone start posting your preference of which day works best, and I guess we'll go from there.

Tagging, and Thursday would be preferred for me.

*rumbling sound*

I may be able to make it...

No strong preference between days.

Thursday also preferred here, as Wednesday is both my brother's and one of my kid's birthday.

Oooooo, careful, QStone is attracted to Old Spice and desperation.

My house does have the drinks and games! No BBQ right now, but that can change quite easily. Or we can order in from Danny's/Dickey's/Dixie Belle's.

I wasn't expecting anyone to offer their home for mid-week shenanigans (figured we'd just go to a restaurant or bar), but if you're cool with it, that sounds fantastic! I don't think I'll have room in my carry-on luggage to bring any games along with me, but I can certainly facilitate some beverages.

Also... not sure if it affects any decisions here, but the Super Bowl is only a couple of days after this planned event. Just FYI.

We are totally up for hosting. We got this house for gatherings like this!

I can bring board games and help with BBQ/etc.

Thou dost speak blasphemy - Old Time!

I'll be about to move, but I can probably spare a few hours for an S&T - Thursday would be preferable, I think.

Between the locals, we can probably come up with most any game.

Indeed.

Then I can't wait for you guys to throw some weekend get togethers!

For a mid-week, driving from Wilmington would just be too much.

Have fun!

Shoulda come to New Year's.

Kinda mean, considering you didn't invite him.

*Edit: I think it's likely we'll plan something in the spring once the weather improves enough to make use of the multiple decks and grilling outside. Right now its too chilly for much more than s'mores over the fire pit.

It's freakishly warm this weekend, though!

It really is. I just spent some time on the screened porch with the kitties. They are going crazy for all the birds flying around.

I am trying to arrange travel for a job interview down in that direction and, should things work out timing wise, I might be joining you.

Yay!

And if the interview goes well enough, I may need your advice on real estate.

It is way too early in the process, but I am feeling good about this opportunity. The wife is not completely on board with the relo idea, but I have been doing research on RDU and it looks like a remarkably liveable place and is considerably less pricey than this area.

If I'm healthy I'm there.

What's the official time/date of this thing?

But but but then you won't be able to help out at your brother-in-law's gas station!

Date: Thursday, 1/31
Time: After 6pm
Location: I'll pm our address when it's closer to everyone who's posted in this thread that they might come.

Sounds great! The NC crowd is a good group, you should move down here Paleocon.

I won't be there though. Something about working until 6 everyday and living in Fayetteville. Bleh to you people who live in a real city.

I don't get off that easy. SW flies direct from RDU to BWI for $85.

So I hear. I also hear that I, generally, won't be treated as some kind of baby murdering social pariah for being a gun owner down that way.
