If someone has access to a sloth, please bring one we can debauch.

@bluebird101, just drinks with iNaturalist folks at a local pub so people can meet each other in person.

Publicado por kueda hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

It's so close to my house! But I'll be getting back from a trip that evening...so I hope to make it. Also - didn't know about other one...

@tiwane Debauched Sloth should be the name of an iNat members sludge metal band.

@dpom, @anudibranchmom, @sea-kangaroo, @metsa, @tomv, @robberfly, and anyone else on the other side of the Bay who came last time, if you're interested in schlepping it out to Oakland, this is happening on Tuesday!

Publicado por kueda hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

and to think I almost missed out. I will try and make the gathering of the tribes.

Publicado por taj hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

I'll be there! Possibly with some friends in tow.

(Are sloths the optimal debauchimals, or will other xenarthrans do?)

Publicado por sea-kangaroo hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

Xenarthrans of any stripe will do. I was referencing Patrick O'Brian's great Aubrey-Maturin books, which everyone should read.

"what is the matter with the sloth?" It was curled on Jack's knee, breathing heavily: its bowl and Jack's glass stood empty on the table. Stephen picked it up, peered into its affable, bleary face, shoot it, and hung it upon its rope. It seized hold with one fore and one hind foot, letting the others dangle limp, and went to sleep.
Stephen looked sharply round, saw the decanter, smelt to the sloth, and cried, "Jack, you have debauched my sloth."

Lol! And that reminds me of the pet rock hyrax from Born Free:
"She was a vegetarian but had a craving for alcohol, and for the strongest spirits at that; she would pull the bottle over, extract the cork, and swig the liquor."

Publicado por sea-kangaroo hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

Great to see and/or meet y'all!

My friends enjoyed themselves a lot; as they said afterwards "it's nice to talk to people who go outside"!

Publicado por sea-kangaroo hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

It was nice to meet you all in person!
Thank you Ken-ichi for organizing this iNat Happy-Hour.

Here's Tony's photo of the crew early on:

from his journal post. Not pictured are @acollins, @rhislop, @loloscheiner, and @adrained, who showed up later. Thanks for coming out, everyone! Next time... South Bay?

Publicado por kueda hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

Where's the photo of everyone after 5 beers? :P So bummed I missed it. Can we have it at Little Shamrock near CalAcademy next time? Love that place!

Publicado por joelle hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

I once spent at least an hour, very drunk, watching house mice raid the popcorn machine at The Little Shamrock (I used to live over there). It's still all I can think of when I think of that place.

Also I can't believe I missed this meetup. I got up at 5 am to go take a final and then came home and fell asleep. Woke up around 3 and completely forgot that it was happening.

Publicado por primalux hace alrededor de 7 años (Marca)

So cool! :)

Oh no! I only just saw this now - next time for sure
