In The Crowd

East Bayyyyy!

I spent a few hours (okay, seven) last night hanging out with the MeFi crew in Berkeley. The meet up was at the Albatross, where people are serious about their games. As in, don't come and waste table space if aren't planning a Connect Four deathmatch. Apparently it's close to the graduate student housing for UC Berkeley and has a fiendishly difficult and popular pub quiz, held at the civilized hour of 8:30 pm as opposed to some quizzes I could name. Several inventive games of Mao and a few games of darts were played, and a large quantity of beer and pizza was consumed. The women of course provided the flair.

    Speaking of flair... we still need "I <3 Shosh" buttons for the jar at UO. How are we ever to establish a fanbase of mythical proportions without the heart buttons?

    That's a cheap shot, Alicia. You know damned well that if any restaurant in SB deigned to remain open past 10 pm, we'd have the Pub Quiz at a later hour.

    A man's gotta eat.
