New Yorkers/New Englanders! Let's Do It.

So, all y'all expressed interest in coming to my humble abode in Hartford for a vegweb shindig, of sorts. 

Let's plan, shall we?

Let me mention first off that Bostoners can come to Hartford via the Megabus for quite cheap.  Or carpool.  Albany peeps could carpool as well.  All of you in the Connecticut/New York/Massachusetts area are invited!

I am available these weekends:

January 30th
February 6th
February 13th (Valentines Weekend)
February 20th
March 7th

And beyond that, but let's stop right there for now. 

What say you, friends?  I am thinking a potluck with a theme.  If we do it around Valentine's (or even if not) we could totally do an ironic love theme.  Either way, I'm making cumcakes and penis/vagina cookies.  Because how often do you get to do that?

I have a lovely kitchen, a futon, and a decent amount of floor space, though we'd need some cushioning for the floor sleepers (wood floors).  You could stay the night or just come for the day.

Thoughts?  I want to do something that we all like.  We can have games, drinks, movies, presents, etc.

RSVPs
foofie - any time, especially Feb 15th
Cali - all but Jan 20th, 31st and Feb 20th
bp - coming whether she likes it or not  :-*
JW - all but Jan 30th
LA - prefers Feb 13th or March
algae - any time!

Couldn't you do the radio tab thing on iTunes, and just have all 80's music?

Sounds good to me.  Are Jamz 80's or 90's?  Or is this a formal?

No, not a formal so much.  I picture 80's, but we can totes have some 90's jams mixed in.  ;)b

hey, i thought this was gonna be a formal with "outfits" and corsages. i wanted to "stage" an area so we can take "prom pics"  ;)b ;)b

my dreams are bigger than my eyes  ::)

No, that's right.  But cams was talking about music, so by formal I thought he meant like...really stuffy music.  No no.  There will be corsages.  There will be prom pics (love that idea!).  There will be dresses and suits.  kk?

No!  Jamz are a fashion of pants, ala MC Hammer!  That is why I was asking whether it was formal or not.

Ohhhhhhhhh!  OK.  You can totally wear those.  I mean, wear whatever you think is fitting!

FOODS:
My friend Kevin is coming from New Hampshire, and he told me he is bringing a sweet potato/corn chowder type of thing.  Just for everyone's food planning information.

And again, my foods will be cupcakes, punch (some with alcohol, some not), and breakfast fixings.  Though other breakfast contributions are welcome. 

What-all do we want for breakfast?  I do not have a toaster/toaster oven.  Pancakes?  With, like, choose your own toppings/fillings?  We could have nuts, chocolate chips, berries, etc. and then random things to go on top. 

If I have alcohol, how many of y'all will drink it?  Or am I the only lush here?

Haven't figured out yet what I'm bringing, but it will be good!

Pancakes are an awesome breakfast.  Especially if there's soy whip :)

I'll drink alcohol!  Let me know if you need me to get anything at the packy on the way down.  For any non-New Englanders reading this, packy = package store = liquor store.  You learn somethin new every day :)

I learned a new word!  I feel like a New Englander now.

I will have probably some beer, wine, and my spiked prom punch.  Additional booze would be much appreciated.

Soy whip is quite necessary, yes.

I am planning on bringing a batch of Seitan Clams!  Though I could also try to think up something else to bring as well.

Wow do they really taste like clams?  That will be interesting.

Hey Camillus do you care if I use your Texas Trash recipe?  I already have the recipe, just wanted to be sure you weren't planning on bringing it.  I love that stuff.

Go for it, JW.  That stuff is awesome!

I haven't decided what I am bringing, but BP and I talked about perhaps doing a fondue sort of thing.  I'm not sure how that'll work though.  I thought of a great costume idea though, but I'll keep it secret, just in case another dude like BP decides to wear the same outfit.  Wicked sweet!

I got my invitation over the weekend, thanks Kate!  How wonderously 80's too!

Will you have fridge access?  Although, your car will be cold enough to be fridge like, probably.

Yes.  I'm going to ask my friend what kind of cooking materials he has and I can cook something before I leave Boston.

Now that Zealia is confirming, (kind of) what kind of board games do you have Kate?  Should BP and I bring some?
