AMTRAKATHON 2018 Is on It's Way!

Post by Dr. Pyro » Thu Sep 28, 2017 10:23 am

All right everybody, get ready for a real snow job! AMTRAKATHON 2018: The Last of the Mojitos is almost upon us. Hop on board the Amtrak Snow Train to Reno for what is likely to be the final excursion into that nether world of bacchanalian excess and debauchery (and let's get real, a certain degree of rampant nudity). This year Dr. Pyro and OD Green are taking 90 of you hedonists on the one party that is "totally off the rails". While on board enjoy "bottomless" champagne and beer, specially catered lunch, and room at the not-particularly-luxurious Sands Regency in Reno. We will be departing the Roseville Amtrak station on Saturday, January 27 at 11:30 a.m. and will be getting into Reno at 4:00 p.m. For you pussies who cannot make the train but still want to meet up for a Burning Man-inspired party, meet up beginning at 7:00 p.m. on the 17th floor of the Empress Tower. We are looking to take down all of the luxury suites for the party (first come, first served) and the hot tub and sauna are open until 9:00 p.m. If you'd like an invitation for the train trip itself PM me with your email address and I'll get one off to you right away. Anyone who has ever done this in the past will tell you it is one helluva party.

We have more than a third of our spaces on the train reserved. PM me if you want to join in! Look for me on the train in my tuxedo pouring Korbel Champagne to the masses.

Yippy! I'm in. (Prep started when we got home last year.) Can't wait. Thanks Doc.

I want to announce that AMTRAKATHON 2018 is officially sold out. We can accommodate people coming to Reno on the train but there is no transportation back to Roseville. But if you just want to take the train and make your own arrangements getting down the hill (or flying out of Reno) we can accommodate you and will deduct $15 per person.

Whew. Now that the Christmas parade is behind me, (glances over my shoulder), it's time to think of the overnight party train. The Amtrakathon! We whitewash over xmas and new years at my house. Happy happy Hanukkah. I'm hungry. Bring food. I'm thirsty. Bring drink and mixers. I'll bring a gift. Maybe I should have posted this in the 'drunk posting' thread.

With the big party just 13 days away, for those of you who would like to join us in Reno at The Sands but are not taking the train, I can get you a room at my cost ($66 including all taxes/resort fees) if you let me know before January 22. Also, Just Joe, are you going to be joining us this year? We could use the help (hint, hint). Party begins at 7 p.m. 17th floor of the Empress Tower on January 27. Would love to see a bunch of you leftist weirdos and Ygmir again.

I haven't decided if I'm getting a room or not, but yeah, I can probably mule 4 or 5 people and a truck bed worth of luggage to the Sands.
If you need anything else, PM me.

It's been a while since my last trip to the playa, If anyone wants to make the trip, I'm game to drive up early Sunday.

Shit, shit, shit. Train trip. Party. Cold, cold snow? I'm stuck trying to pack. Maybe all onesies with rubber boots.
