If you guys don't go to the Pacific Pinball Museum, I'm going to tell jms to give you all wedgies.

I'm pretty open as to date, and also location. As long as I can drink and I don't have to shout to be heard, I'm happy.

For your benefit, nosflow, I should probably specify that I'm thinking of the Mission Rosamunde, not the one next to the Toronado.

I'm free this Saturday afternoon, or the following weekend.

I guess we can hash things out here, but we could also plan using a PirateMineshaftPad!

If noon doesn't work, I could perhaps drop by later in the evening. Or show up to the other thing late. What would the triumphant general prefer?

This has fallen off the front page, but I imagine it'll get a bump eventually.

It's 3PM-indefinite, so it would make more sense if others figured out what their best time was and I tried to make it to that. I suppose some hour 6 or later would be meet, though.

Chopper, have you and your wife considered pitching a tent in Dolores Park? You could pop over to Rosamunde for a beer, and afterwards we can all roast marshmallows by your campsite.

Purslane is all that (but can worsen kidneystones), and also known as Pusley. My nonexistent son is a fraction luckier in his nonexistence; irresistible nickname.

Montgomery looking like a total badass in high-waisted trousers and a sweater, no waistcoat.

Bay Area Parkour, very earnest, or just hang out with the homegrown planche training vids if you're shallow like me.
