Howdy, Stranger!

You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!

Icrontic New Years' Eve 2016

LincLinc BardDetroit, MI Icrontian

Howdy folks.

Pretty standard Icrontic event. Please don't show up before Thurs the 29th unless you've asked Brian or I. The fates have put Jan 1 on a Sunday which is pretty much the best possible scenario for us; that means most of us have Monday off too for extra recovery time.

It's possible we already have some champagne in the house from a certain case of electoral blue balls (see what I did there?). BYOB and BYO snacks as usual. We'll have the champagne but we surely won't turn it down if you want to also contribute some for the midnight toast.

I feel like 2016 maybe didn't go so hot so let's get 2017 off to a proper start with some quality midnight hugs and kisses.

Check out the 2017 accommodations thread for general house info: http://icrontic.com/discussion/100656/icrontic-2017-events-accommodations#latest

Let me know if you need lodging (including how many nights) and please let me know if your plans change.

    Or maybe some quality mass suicide? I feel like 2016 is just the start of a string of at least 3 shitty years...

    Don't worry, I won't be there anyway :P I'm hosting my own NYE thing so I can pass out in my own bed.

    Can we burn a fucking effigy of 2016? Maybe try and summon some dark lords to consume the planet for 2017? Just planting seeds.

    I can be there if these conditions are met:

    1. Ticket from TLH (GOOD FUCKING LUCK)
    2. My work lets me (GOOD FUCKING LUCK)
    3. I want to be there, life is shit and I need good times with good friends.

    I am not going to make it this year, too many dog/cat jobs to say no too. Plus having @DontCallMeKelso in Iowa will be the bonus. Should make it to ICSP though :) Will miss you all <3

    Well, didn't everyone basement before? Since the attic is likely to be pretty chilly?

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI Icrontian

    Basement will also likely be chilly...

    I was thinking more in respect to dogs than cold - last time we were up in the attic, Hallie made the rounds trying to snuggle people, and they tend to be pretty unobservant of others sleeping when they want to go outside.

    Current temperatures:

    • Main Floor: 68° F
    • Basement: 53° F
    • Attic: 44° F
    • Outdoors: 30° F

    I can bring up to 4 cots (max 240 lbs) to the basement for anyone who would rather join the dogs than the cold, and of course I don't care on which of the two floors you inflate your own bed. Unfortunately the rest of our bedding is floor-specific - no regular mattresses etc on the basement floor, let alone bringing them up and down the stairs.

  • WinfreyWinfrey waddafuh Missouri Icrontian

    44 is like perfect sleeping temp imo.

  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen The Lulz Queen Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian

    Yea, 44 is fine for now, I am just wondering what it's going to be up there if it's 0-10 degrees out.

  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen The Lulz Queen Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian

    Is there any interest in me making spaghetti again? I could do it for dinner the 30th or Sunday the 1st again like last year.

    Sure! We have the noodles already.

  • MassalinieMassalinie O'Canada Winnipeg, Canada Icrontian

    We secured that AirBnB up the street.

    @FettBacon and I were hoping to go see Rogue One while we're together, if anyone else is interested in joining! Probably worth doing some sort of VIP or DBOX thing if you guys have that (I'm not sure how cinema tech differs in the US lol)
