    So, here's a cool idea.

    My apartment complex has this big ass recreation room available. It's FREE. I just gotta throw down a damage deposit.

    It has a pool table, lots of couches, a kitchen area and a big projector screen.

    We can set up some six foot tables, bring some fancy TF pieces and order some pizza or something.

    How does that sound? Only thing, is it has to be a saturday.

    Are you thinking about the saturday before the comic convention? Because that should work fine for me. Pizza is always a good thing for me. Only request is that it's NOT domino's. Since they changed their crust it's not that good anymore.

    I'm down with you coming. But if you're gonna be paraphrasing Disturbed lyrics I'm going to have to ask you to leave :p 

    AWESOME.

    This is what I'm thinking. The damage deposit is hefty. But I get it back at the end of the day. If anyone wants to chip in on it, that's great. If not, that's cool too. If you're down shoot me a pm.

    2nd week of Novemberish is perfect I think.

    Dude! That buttery crust is delicious.

    I don't want the get together and that toy show to collide. So, let's give them a months breathing room. If someone can't make it to one, maybe they can make it to the other. Sound ok?



    So, here's the date. Let me know what everyone thinks and I will reserve it asap. Send me your e-mail addresses via PM and I will send you an evite.

    Thanks!

    Saturday November 19th. Ventana Ranch Apartments, 10400 Universe Blvd Albuquerque, New Mexico. Time to TBD. Between 11am and 5pm.

    Yes, this is on the westside. Tough boobies if you don't like it. :p 

    If you would like a table, please let me know. I can get several from work.

    Spouses and kids welcome, of course. Time frame is to be determined. But I believe what I said above is the window I have to work within

    Saturday November 19th sounds good. I'm in class until 12:30 so I'll probably fashionably late. Requests on what I should bring? Food, beer, ammo, whatever?

    November is pretty far down the road. I'm working regular hours and days now, so I can make it.

    Sorry I didn't even see that post. Didn't want to make it seam like I didn't care or ignored you.

    I may have to work that day. November is crazy busy for the grocery bis. And we are a weekend store so that makes it worse since I believe that's the weekend before Thanksgiving. I'll try to request it off, but if I do have to work it would be a 10am - 7pm shift which blows that out of the water. Any chance of it being the week before or even just a later time slot???

    The reason I went for the 19th is it's closer to payday for me and I will have the money to put down on the deposit. The time is constrained to the hours of the office. They're closed on sundays and open 11am-5pm on Saturdays.

    Maybe you can switch shifts? that sucks man. I hope you can make it. I was hoping by giving this much advanced noticed people would have time to put in work requests off and such.
