Another piss-up?
I had lunch at the 'Shoe today and asked about Octoberfest. It runs through October 18th. I'm out of town this weekend for AnimeNext, besides, we just didn't one. But what do folks think of doing one on Friday 10/10? Or Friday 10/17 is the last chance date I suppose. I think z_gryphon is coming down for Columbus Day Weekend, but I don't know when he's getting in, or if he'd want to go - generally he doesn't do piss-ups. (I expect he'll be replying to this...) If he wants to be part of it and won't be here Friday, maybe Saturday 10/11 or something like that.

I won't be available Saturday. Friday I might be around, but I dunno - judging by the photos, these things get pretty rowdy...

Yeah, generally fairly noisy with all the folks chatting, and they can be a little rowdy.

So, er, what exactly is a "pissup"?

Pissup....

An excuse to get together and drink. I believe it's British slang.

Drinking is not a requirement, but it is highly encouraged. And the Horseshoe Pub is one of the best places to partake in such an activity.

Re: Pissup....

A meetup, with getting piss-drunk being one of the important aspects. Gotcha.

Well, not necessarily getting piss-drunk. Though some people may do so if they wish and they're not driving. :-)

You're more than welcome to come too.

I know.

British slang for a bunch of people getting together for drinking - generally getting pissed aka drunk.

Though in our social circle it has become more generic, to mean a gathering involving alcohol and generally held at a drinking establishment (bar, pub, etc). But people don't necessarily get drunk - and some people don't even drink alcohol.

The Horseshoe Pub is the most common location for these for us. :-) They like us there.

Dang, by that time we're nowhere near and back in VT =(
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: October 2nd, 2003 11:42 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
Oh, yeah, when are you going to be around? I'm out of town the next few days, but I'll be back either Sunday night or Monday.
nilasae From: nilasae Date: October 2nd, 2003 12:56 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
We'll be around from 6th to 8th approximately (schedule's here). I sent you the mail address and phone# by IM.

Well, you know, Burlington, VT isn't too many hours away. ;-)

I used to drive there from college to see shows sometimes - Ani would play there.

10/10 sounds good to me.

Yeah, Friday 10/10 will work for me if anything that weekend will. Saturday is out. I'll have various out of town people in my house on Friday, most likely, but there's a good chance they'll just want to go along for the fun. :)

I vote for 10/10 because on 10/17 I will be in CA.
