Post Black Friday Thankstaking & 🍽️Dinner🍗 ~ 2019



When:
Sunday, 15 December, 2019
 1300 ~ 1930
(1pm ~ 7:30pm)

Where: 
The Wolf Den ~ North Campus 
(If you don't know what that means, RSVP for more info. If you don't know how to get hold of me, you aren't invited, cause all my chosen fam has my contact info! Sorry Charlie!) 
What:
  • After you've made all the mandatory appearances, complete with attendant feuding, stress, awkwardness, giving thanks til it hurts, and that one really weird family member no one claims, then endured Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Ridiculous Tuesday*, untangling the %&^#*ing lights, chosen between assembling a faux foliage monstrosity or killing another precious tree, and  remembering where you put those leftover decorations you REALLY were going to put with the rest of them but never quite got round to it, come and join some of your chosen family for a low key, tasty dinner and whatever.
  • Enjoy playing games, watching cheesy holiday (or other) movies, and just  hang out.
  • If you can/would like to bring a dish or snack to share, that is AWESOME! Let me know, and I'll add it to the menu! 
  • Ingredients available on request - actual recipes if you ask really nicely. 
  • Wear whatever makes you happy and comfortable. Dress up if you like, don't if you don't like; It's all good!
  • This is an alcohol, illegal drug, and bigotry free gathering, so don't bring any of those here.
  • Edibles are fine as long as they are VERY clearly marked as such, so no one has a more magical than they wanted experience.  
  • Smoking (pot, cigars, anything legal) is allowed outside. There's a nice, covered, back patio with blankets and chairs. 
  • It's not a "safe space" or a PC gathering,  and there won't be content or trigger warnings. There might be terrible jokes, all kinds of "isms" discussed and/or mocked, and plenty of other horribleness. If you are too fragile to handle the mere mention of ... well, anything, you'd be more comfortable elsewhere. That doesn't mean being a douche to others is tolerated, but the "-ist police" aren't invited. 
  • If you don't like or are allergic to dogs, you may want to pass on this one. The dog lives here. You don't.  
  • Come for the whole thing or just for dinner. Just let me know which you are doing!
