Nor'easter Meet!

AldricAldric Member Posts: 790 ✭✭✭✭✭
Sooo...

As you may have read in my RAGE post, I'm looking to travel a bit. I know this is a bit late notice (hey a month is totally plenty, right?) but I've got the weekend of March 13th-15th (and maybe that Thursday the 12th) off and wanted to know if anybody wanted to plan an impromptu meet!

Area: Somewhere in the northeast, or just east coast (less than 10 hours from PA pls)

Date: March 13, 14, 15 with a possibility of the 12th for anybody interested earlier.

I'd have to do some quick research, and planning would have to move veeeeery fast, but who would potentially be interested? I'm thinking finding a cabin somewhere, or even just splitting the price of a hotel would be doable, but it's all up in the air.

    That's a biiiit out of my budget since I'd need a plane ticket or I'd be down for sure :(

    Anyway,  there's a hotel in Ocean City MD that I've been to and is awesome with a groupon deal for rooms like $50 a night. Two queen sized beds,  big room,  and right on the beach for $25 a person per night if split.  I know it's March,  but we went at this time last year and it was still awesome. 

    That would be my vote. Cheap rooms = more money for alcohol!  Yay!

    I'm in New York City if anyone wants to meet up. Could probably travel out of the city a bit since everything here is super crazy expensive though.

    I have been tossing an idea around with my little inner circle lately about doing a good, proper east coast meet. I'm in West Virginia myself, and the ones I talk to are in New York, Kentucky, and Ohio. So we're all relatively close. I think this would be a phenomenal idea, as long as a central location that everyone can reach relatively easy was decided upon, and also a plan once we're there. Maybe a weekend of all doing something together?

    Okay so it turns out the Groupon thing for the Ocean City hotel doesn't work for that weekend, and the usual rates skyrocket on that weekend! Super! (Not) I'm sticking with Groupon for looking for hotels, don't judge me, they have great deals!

    Current ideas:
    - NYC
    (All Groupon deals I can find are like $150+ a night. Doable if split I suppose, but up for discussion!)

    - Philadelphia
    (See NYC)

    - Wildwood NJ?

    ($69 a night for a room that sleeps 4)

    - Atlantic City NJ?
    http://www.groupon.com/deals/ga-bk-red-roof-inn-suites-atlantic-city-7#destination_id=063fef54-6231-454f-b880-5ba682162be1&destination_name=Atlantic City, NJ, USA&check_in=2015-03-13&check_out=2015-03-15&city_slug=atlantic-city-nj
    ($52 a night for a room that sleeps 4)
    (Casinos and night clubs anybody?)


    What other places are of interest? I don't know why I'm hooked on the idea of beach right now, but whatever.


    EDIT: @Malok If this meet turns out anything like the Ohio meet did 4ish years ago (I half hope it would, half certainly hope it wouldn't) we could make all the plans we wanted to, but would probably only end up doing one or two of the things and then drinking the rest of the time >_>

    Ohio memories:
    - Grocery shopping with @Kiyotan was hilarious. Getting him to try bacon (drunk) and eat spaghetti from a jar also right up there.

    - @Anfini chickening out on the rap battle versus Kiyotan and instead beat boxing it. Video for nostalgia's sake. Warning has naughty words I think.


    - @Erzsebet taking 30 minutes to roll through all of her alts during the wheel promo.

    - King's Cup played more times than I can remember.

    - Drunk Aladdin and Titanic.
    Allegedly. I don't remember.

    - Captain Morgan recreated featuring Anfini as the Captain himself and me as a barrel I guess:


    - And many many more, most of which probably should not be posted on the forums.

    tl;dr seriously Aetolians go hard

    I've sworn off NYC forever unless there's a really compelling reason. I'm up to anyplace that's easily accessible by a bus company or someone can give me a ride.

    Sounds like a lot of fun. I've never gotten to meet other players in groups like that before. I really want to this year, its one of my main goals now. Not trying to con everyone into coming to my state to save myself money, but like we discussed in Oasis earlier, there are a ton of state forests here with cabins/hiking/etc.

    It would allow the people from Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, and Pennsylvania to come down to a central place. Not sure if this is the way to go for next month, however, but perhaps for one in May like we discussed.

    Let me know what you all think, I have tons of info about this place I live in.

    Okay, so, a full-on meet for us East coast folks won't be doable until maybe May. While those West-coasters are having all sorts of fun, we can have some fun of our own! I figure those definitely interested in committing to a weekend in May can send me a PM, and I'll get us a group PM-thingy going on. Once those of us that can commit to a certain date come up with a specific time/place together, then we'll let everybody else know and invite them to show!

    It's a little easier to just show up once all the plans and details are ironed out anyway, so, hopefully that could help. To those that wanna help plan though, please get in touch with me sooner than later. At the very least if we gate a solid date down we'll allow time for people to get off work and whatnot.

    Good idea @Malok!

    On the flip side, who actually lives on the east coast and would be interested in meeting up for a beer or something? I've still got Spring break weekend next weekend, and no plans now but to hop in my car and start driving somewhere.

    Yeah man. Lets do this. We don't have to meet up in WV, I'm cool with going to the surrounding states if need be. I want @Ashmer, @Callidora, and @Asaraii to come too though!

    Anybody around Cleveland OH by chance? I kinda wanna check out the rock and roll hall of fame. Figure that'd be something fun to do Saturday during the day.

    You should quit being a grumper and plan coming to this meet with us.

    I'm in cleveland... but I don't drive so it would have to be taxi distance from me... which is like... pretty much limited to cleveland.
  • AldricAldric Member Posts: 790 ✭✭✭✭✭


    If anybody is along this line, or relatively close to it and wants to grab lunch/dinner/a beer or something, let me know! I'll be leaving Friday morning (or probably afternoon, since I work until 3 AM the night before), and will be in Cleveland Friday night, Saturday, and leaving Sunday at some point.

    If you don't wanna post here, shoot me a PM!
