Eplaya Meet & Greet 2018 (6pm Wed, 9:30 & E)

Post by Drawingablank » Wed Apr 04, 2018 7:48 pm

The Eplaya Meet & Greet will be happening again this year at its usual time and place.

This is a pot luck affair so we ask that everyone attending bring something to either eat or drink.

Date: Wednesday of Burn week.
Time: 6PM to 8PM
Place: Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro, 9:30 & E

All Eplayans are welcome, password is pineapple.

Bouncers, setup, and clean up volunteers are needed. Set up volunteers need to arrive early.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Hopefully, I can make time for it this year.

Pineapple??? You have been, and continue to be... ms. un-informed.

The main Password that has always worked is : FINE NIPPLES !!!

Memo to Sham: Please get with the program. We have been letting YOU slide just 'cuz we love you.
Okay?

The answer may not be at Burning Man, but shouldn't we at least check :?:

Could somebody come by my camp and fetch me?
We close at 6, but that does not mean I instinctively drop everything at 18:00:00 hours and leap away from camp in search of something else to do. :lol:

Just now, not a minute ago, I found a bottle of super fine vino in my travel trailer:

Two Buck Chuck, circa 2004.

Been to the Playa minimum guaranteed 5 years.

Lovingly forgotten and stored horizontal in Santa Clarita CA for seven long years ( Talk about wine abuse ) in the sweltering SoCal heat.

Travelled 3000 miles guaranteed, up and down I 395 or the stinky 99/80.

14 years of playa dust aging.

Can not guarantee it’s not vinegar.

How the fuck do I get this out to Doc Pyro or any other FKO for the MnG?

I’m down in The Gold Country, Highway 49 so about an hour and change south of Sacramento.

Stored horizontal... may have saved it, by keeping the cork wet and tight. Wait. What am I saying.... Screw cap with plastic seal?
Regardless, this will be a Ceremony, for sure. :-)

If I get down that way, I'll contact you, and I can get it here, then to Doc...

We will figure it out.

I have one request tho.

Must be a spectacle at the MnG, some kind of worship, and liberal amount of boobies involved.

Don’t need pictures, just good stories.

I got family in El Dorado Hills, so figure I’ll meet up with the Doc.

And yes, Elliot, $2 Chuck Merlot in 04 was cork so luck of the draw on horizontal is key. ;)

Netty, every year I either give the wrong password or don't remember it. It can take me 15 minutes to get past the bouncer. I make it an art form to try and get into the party. I'll even ask other people to give me the password. I even offer bribes! 8)

If I forgot the password I would just have to start SCREEing until Ygmir heard me and lifted me over the fence.

Hey, that's why I love to be the bouncer. I get to meet so many new friends. (Even if we've known each other for years because I have no memory.) Plus all the old jokes are new again.

I brought one in 2016 but he didn't show up. BTW. Sparr's alright. I saw him do an incredible event at SF Decompression one year.

I will try to make it this time around. Last year was my first burn so I was a bit too busy absorbing impressions to be able to think in terms of being at a specific place at a specific time.

I will try to bring some lingonberry mead with me from Sweden. Might have to convince/bribe my fellow travelers to act as mead-mules since I am limited to one liter due to customs regulations.

Dr lovemachine, please do come to the M&G. Don't bother to drag that all the way across the ocean. Nobody will appreciate the effort as much as we should. by Wednesday we are tired and drunk. Just pick up a bottle of Jamesons and a 6 pack of ginger beer on your way in. March in yelling 'Jamesons and ginger beer from Sweden'. Introduce yourself. Can't wait to hug you.

As usual, I'll try to make it.

Given that the last time I successfully did so was in 2005, though, it seems likely I'll wind up tipping back a drink in absentia.
