Large Washington D.C. Gathering (TLAP Day)

Postby Qwertyuiopasd on Thu Jul 09, 2009 3:44 pm

So in the interest of less local meetups, I propose meeting in Washington D.C. on September 19th, to basically dress like pirates and frighten people in (one of) the Nations Capitol.

for more local people, it would make an excellent Saturday day trip. For those farther away and with the means to transport yourselves here, we could organize some guest room type usage. In the fall my house should have three guest beds open, in separate rooms.

Also to make it worthwhile for people spending one or more nights, we can plan to do stuff Friday through Sunday. Friday for it is the holy day, Saturday for it would be the Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Sunday just for the halibut.

I definitely think we should make a big ruckus on the mall or something. Or play the role of really incompetent tourist pirates in any of the Smithsonian museums, continually asking employees inane but entertaining questions as a group.

So! If you are local and interested, post! If you've got a room or bed or couch to spare that weekend, do pipe up! And if you're not local but do want to come, post as well! We can work something out.

Huzzah! :fsm_yarr:

I will now refrain from making comments about your previous East-Coast-centrism.
I will also try to make it there or to a more local event....or may set a different gathering!

We have floor space and a sofa to share, but no real guest room. More like crash space. Talk Like a Pirate Day is on a Saturday this year.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival is running, but the Pirate Adventure Weekend is the following weekend. The 19th and 20th are the Irish Weekend.

Sounds like a lot to take in, but those whirlwind-type vacations are often quite enjoyable.

Turns out this may or may not be Parents weekend at my sisters college and/or the weekend my dad is going to be in Portland. So we will be finding out more about how that'll work out.

an alternate date which would make a good Pastafarian Holiday anyway is the Scopes Trial, which was July 21st (or at least that's when Wikipedia says the decision was). probably too short notice by now, but in the future perhaps?

So, perhaps Pirate Weekend at the Renn Faire would be a better weekend anyway? We could always hit up the mall anyway, using the pirate weekend as an excuse to be in town, and as pirate tourists must, visit museums as well. XD
