    Anyone here a fan of hummus? I can whip up a batch tonight and bring some pita and veggies with it?

    Don't make me hurt you!

    #253 7 years ago

    Just got back from Movie Night Double Feature...White House Down and World War Z.
    ...I think I likes the other White House movie better.
    WWZ, not sure! Being PG13 REALLY hurt it in my opinion. Lots of "cheap scares"...but no gore type stuff...most in cut away. Bah!...If you're gonna make a Zombie Movie...Give Us The Goods!!

    Quoted from Gwaxt72:

    guys I am in the food business, no need to really bring anything except some sides, snacks, drinks..

    Have fun fellas! I wish I could join in on meeting a lot of you and crushing beers. Unfortunately I am in Virginia for the summer, hopefully Rob can host in the fall (hint hint), he is a great dude.

    #255 7 years ago

    Ill bring some dessert.

    #256 7 years ago

    Just came home with dessert and stuff for tomorrow...pies, CC cookies, chips, booze...

    Quoted from S37VEN:

    OK I am on the wings and some soda/Pelligrino. I could also do another Buffalo staple (I am originally from Buffalo)... wait for it... grilled/fried bologna sandwiches. 1/4" thick slab of Boar's head bologna topped with white onions and green peppers and a slice of american on a kaiser roll. Trust me they are killer!

    Damn that sounds good. It's barely 5am and I'm itching for one.

    See you all there. I'll figure out some foodie thing to bring along.

    #261 7 years ago

    I'm thinking about maybe a late July/early August event...

    #270 7 years ago

    Cool! We're off to see the shlockdoc!

    #271 7 years ago

    A big thanks to Rob and Nelson. Great day of pinball !

    #272 7 years ago

    YES! BIG thanks to Rob and Nelson for a fantastic time!! GREAT food! Great people!
    Pix soooon!

    #273 7 years ago

    I seriously couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks so much for having us Rob and Nelson. Two really cool guys who invited some other really cool people that I'm glad to have met. Great central area. Took me 20-30 minutes to get back to my buddies house and then about 45 to get home safe. It's hard to remember everyone's real names and usernames but I thought every one was a joy to be around, polite and respectful. Hope we can do something like this again soon while it's still summertime! Oh and this is for you Ted Next time I'll bring some rocky patel 2008 Autumn collection! So mild with great subtle flavor.

    #274 7 years ago

    Just rolled into my house. Had a blast. Thanks again Rob and Nelson. Great meeting everyone!

    ...AND your first cigar!

    #276 7 years ago

    ...we also have to figure out about the Invisiglass Situation? Can anyone go to Jack's and pick up 3 sheets so we can divvy up? (I only need one)

    #277 7 years ago

    I might be going in the next week or so , I will ask then.

    #278 7 years ago

    Hey all..sorry I didn't make it to Nelson's...this allergy season has been killing me and I've been battling migraines the last few days. Came home and laid down in the dark, I didn't even touch my AFM...

    Good times...here are a few pics.

    Good time at Rob's (Thanks Rob). Missed Nelson's - next time.

    Good seeing the familiar faces from last gathering, and some new faces.

    Highlights, in no particular order:
    Rob's AFM. Played great. Landed 2nd place score behind Ron's 11+ million game.
    The tray of crispy bacon
    Chatting with Jim (whridlsoncestood)
    "Every time we blow a breaker we drink a shot" rule
    Crispy bacon wrapped around those jumbo shrimp
    Playing Pinball Magic (with Gecko Greg & Josh) for the first time. Surprisingly fun game.
    Chatting with Gerry & Joe
    Crispy bacon dipped into the hummus. Somewhere a vegetarian is weeping.
    Monster Bash!
    Tales of the Arabian Nights!
    The spicy chicken wings someone whipped up. Dee-lish!
    Fireball (Ted's favorite adult beverage, not the pinball)
    Chatting with Nelson & Jeff
    Crispy bacon!

    There's more ... But now I hungry.

    My place next time.

    #289 7 years ago

    Sorry about the migraine. I know someone who gets them and it's usually on a hot day like yesterday. There is no excuse needed my friend those things cripple people. I can't even imagine. Hope it wasn't too bad once you were in the dark.

    #293 7 years ago

    Much thanks to Rob and Nelson (and his lovely wife) for hosting.

    I can safely say it was a great day of casual play on excellently maintained games, and so nice to meet so many non-competitive pinheads! *disclaimer i LOVE playing competitive pinball, but sometimes its nice just to ENJOY it.

    #294 7 years ago

    Josh, happy 40th and have an amazing ski trip! Lets talk some shop (it security ) and some tfle when you get back.

    #295 7 years ago

    Thanks Nelson, definitely!

    Hopefully i will have some great video and pics as well

    It looks like everyone had a good time. Maybe I will be able to make the next one.

    #297 7 years ago
    Quoted from sp005:
