Lodging
- Several hotels within a 10 minute drive, google zip code 75243. I would avoid the hotels directly north of me, the night hours can be sketchy. Cluster of hotels close to Walnut Hill and North Central Expressway are a good choice.

Popular choice was the Hampton Inn on north Central Expressway - https://goo.gl/maps/GJVsESNeYBhZvYpG9

Another possible cheaper choise - https://www.sonesta.com/sonesta-sel...ce=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=gmb

Air - DFW airport is 30-45 minutes depending on traffic - DAL (Love Field) is 15-20 minutes depending on traffic

Parking - Street parking only

General - I have three beers on tap - they will be local beers, 2 IPAs and 1 dark-side beer. Several coolers full of local craft beer, soda, and water will be available. I will have a selection of Bourbon and Scotch available, but for really good stuff I would suggest a group buy. Snacks will be plentiful and the hot dog roller that started it all will be running hotter than I will.

Drink Service - Ashlyn and one of her friends will be mixing Old Fashions and running drinks. She appreciates tips but her attitude is always free.

Sponsorships - Sponsors to subsidize food & drinks are appreciated but not required. If you have a specific drink/snack you want, either bring it or let me know!

Guest Sets - Highly encouraged - single or multi table - set owner banks their set.

Food - I'll cook out on Thursday evening - burgers and brats with some store bought side salads, or someone can manage a pizza order if desired.

Friday - La Ha Buffet - Mesquite grilled beef and chicken fajitas with grilled onions & green bell peppers, cheese
enchiladas topped with a chili con carne sauce and jalapeno relish, rice, refried beans, pico, sour cream, grated cheese,
guacamole, flour tortillas, chips and salsa. $25/head

Saturday - Local BBQ Catering - $25/head included in Main Event buy-in.

To host my 2nd annual birthday poker weekend or let Craig host instead… I am in (provided the Mrs. does not get COVID again)

I will bring Triston’s 2nd annual birthday poker weekend shirts just in case.

(Let’s count me as an alternate in case a spot is open at that time since I wasn’t able to make it on my last RSVP)

I apologize for the late posting of this meetup. My wife informed me she is going to a conference and ended it with "yes you can host a meetup"
I thought it wasn’t happening this year. I had to look twice at the dates to confirm that they were indeed Thursday Friday Saturday to confirm that this wasn’t some old thread I had stumbled upon.

Nice surprise

I was also surprised.

Then we booked an Alaskan cruise three weeks before.

I told the wife no more meetups this year, 3 was enough for me.

I feel bad for lying to her.

LOCK IT THE FUCK UP!!! Can’t wait, this was amazing last year.

Let me know if I can sponcer something unhealthy.
I mean it doesn’t really count towards the total if you’re hosting any of those meet-ups right? Or does that count double.. My own lady asked “Aren’t you going to one in October, too?”

What a silly question to ask. Everybody knows it DEFINITELY doesn’t count if the meet-up is in your same state. It’s like taking a 6-hr drive over to a buddy’s house for a friendly game with absolutely no chance of spending a ton of money!

Can you imagine how sad the drive home is going to be? My birthday is actually on Sunday, the 28th. Driving 6 hours home with absolutely nothing but a brutal hangover ON your birthday.

F*CK IT

Don't forget the empty wallet - probably.

Argh. I have a work conflict and am expected to be in Boston this weekend.

I'm going to try to pull some strings and get out of it, but it's probably 3 to 1 against right now.

Of course, if I do manage to clear my calendar, I'm going to have to send Mrs S on a spa weekend to make up for it.

Loved it last year and am very hopeful to make it this year too. I have the green light for an August trip from the boss already, so it is either this Meetup or Vegas for a friends 40th birthday bash. He hasn’t cleared the Vegas trip with his wife yet though. :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
