I figure since I really have nothing to do with my life and also the major factor being that I am really addicted to TB I figure I would see who is coming to the Valley Of The Sun and of course still active. I come to find out that Brett aka PinkCarder aka Big Pimp aka Drunk Texter aka Beer Lover aka Mr. Future Moderator but you people in TB world know him as Metsbwd, was at the time coming to town for work. So since I am addicted to the meet ups and wanting to meet more of the local group - I figure I would attempt to put one together. Being that Harriet wasn't able to help me persuade people into coming (I MISS YOU HARRIET!!) later on I found that she would be visiting Illinois, so I was on my own... = ( Thanks to the lovely Robyn (FreeSpirit3) aka Wingwomen aka Ms.
Since Brett was staying on my side of the town I figure it was up to me to do all the scouting - which now reminded me of how Mike (Moon_Over_Michael) scouted or did his recon. I went all out - I mean I spent countless hours drinking beer, tasting the specials and seeing what happy hours best. I am not into the whole club scene nor the corporate bars that charge more than 10 bucks for a 2$ beer... I feel the need to have a relaxed kick-back type of evironment where we can sit together and enjoy one anothers' company all while not breaking the bank to eat and drink. Little did I know that Brett was not a stranger to this area as well - so he agreed that we need a sufficient bar.
So I sent out plenty of emails hoping people would try to turn out - I got some good promising emails back - some just out of town or out of money. Totally understandable and hopefully they are available at a different time!! I figure we could someday put Arizona on the map and not just think of us as the state with the Grand Canyon in it. Or as Brett said it "only time people think of Arizona is when they are driving through it to get to CALIFORNIA"!!! BOO!!! lol.
When I first got there I saw Brett since we've been drinking buddies a few nights before hand.
