This diary is primarily intended to serve two purposes:
- To give out the basic information so you can mark your calendar if you wish to participate in a Chez Nico.
- To use the poll feature to get an approximate "head count" of how many attendees I might expect for each event. (I know I can accommodate at least 20 comfortably to watch the game.)
Here's the info, and please feel free to recommend this diary so that it's available for users to see for a few days.
* Chez Nico I: Sunday, June 25th (at my house in Berkeley)
The first Chez Nico will be on Sunday, June 25th, centering around the 1:05pm game at San Francisco. This one will be a "pot luck," with some suitably silly theme or gimmick that will be determined once I have the head count.
We'll gather around 11:00am, and all confirmed guests will have the specific details confirmed by group email 1-2 weeks prior to the date.
* Chez Nico II: Saturday, July 15th (at my house in Berkeley)
The second Chez Nico will be on Saturday, July 15th revolving around the 4:05pm game at Boston. This one will be a BYODA, which stands for "Bring Your Own Dead Animal". It's a barbecue-based event, with much socializing and laughter (although the two are not allowed at the same time), for which you are actually welcome to bring anything from a brutally murdered innocent animal to a dead vegetable, dead soy product, or even just a deceased beverage if you prefer.
We'll gather around 1:00pm, and all confirmed guests will have the specific details confirmed by group email 1-2 weeks prior to the date.
Feel free to use this diary to throw out any questions, comments, suggestions, or ideas. And make sure to vote in the poll, if applicable, so I can get a sense of what to expect for this year's events...Hope to see you!
