    I've been busy the last week, sorry guys!

    The date that seems to work out the best for the most people is March 2nd-4th.

    We'll go with that for now!

    Great! Any ideas on accommodations yet for us non-natives?

    My place is full!

    Regarding an actual place, I haven't picked any options out yet because of the number of uncommitted people at this point. I'll probably wait until after the 1st of the year to decide, unless that really messes with some of you.

    I also live in Austin and would love to come up, count me in.
    I have a small car, but could drive folks around. There are some great breweries in the Dallas area!

    I'll go ahead and put this out there then... If anyone can beat me at a drop shot, I'll buy the round. If you lose, you buy.

    Jager-bombs, cherry-bombs etc too.

    Irish car bombs, while tasty as all get out, are responsible for me not remembering my only night out in Boston...

    I'll put you in the fucking ground if we do this. There's no way you can put them back faster than I can.

    I'm only putting a cap on it at alcohol poisoning. Come to Dallas if you don't want to remember Dallas

    I remember once having 8 car bombs during a single bachelor party. I remember -going- to the party but not actually what happened after. Totally not my fault though--the bartender thought I was a member of multiple parties at the bar and kept giving me free drinks. Who am I to turn down free drinks?

    I live in Dallas so I'm down to participate, as long as it's not the first weekend in March! I have a workshop that weekend.
  • AereidhnaAereidhna DallasPosts: 647Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    Oops, looks like it is the first weekend. In which case I'll join in on Friday and Saturday evening, I guess!

    Have we decided how this is going to work?

    Should we look at like VRBO/Homeaway places to rent if there are a few of us traveling? If there's a group it'll be much cheaper than hotels. 
  • MilabarMilabar Posts: 97Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I'll be back in the south, so I'm down to show up.  Dallas is like 6 hours from me so I can just drive over.  I'll look into reserving a room somewhere next month.  

    Be good to meet all ya folks

    I'll be there March 2 and 3rd, as of now. 
  • LeviticusLeviticus Posts: 314Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Also I will be staying at a Residence Inn or Marriott of some type. I'll get two queens if anyone wants to room up. My company pays it so no need to dish out money and I'll have a truck for the weekend.
  • LiiLii Posts: 43Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished

    I haven't heard from pretty much anyone on what activities you want to do. Depending on what everyone wants to do, the best area to stay in changes a good amount. Please reply with what you're comfortable with/want to do, or suggest other things if my original list didn't have what you want.

    From the links Lii posted, most of those aren't going to be viable due to location. Here are the ones that would generally be OK.

    You're looking for locations that are west/northwest of downtown Dallas, but not too far west.

    Plans have since changed, and I'm receiving a visit from my dad at home instead of heading to Texas in March, but regarding activities - isn't the point of every Achaean meet to get fucked-in-half drunk and talk shit? If not I've been doing it wrong.
