First, I have to thank Tito's Handmade Vodka for sponsoring this event. They came to theCHIVE offices and asked us where we wanted to go. We immediately responded, "Seattle, before the weather gets super shitty."
Thanks to all the Chivers for coming out to play. It turned out to be one of the best times we've ever had. The Emerald City came to party, man. I made some good friends that night and we'll be back for more soon.
Thanks to Garage Billiards for being generally awesome. Any bar that has a fucking bowling alley in it is already awesome, but the staff there were amazing that night from what I remember.
And thanks again to the Belltown Pub for hosting the after party. I can't imagine what it looks like to see hundreds of wildly intoxicated Chivers steamrolling your bar at 1am looks like, but you handled yourself with poise and grace. I highly recommend the chicken wings.
I'm done thanking people now. No thanks especially to Mac, who was not invited and showed up anyway. His ability to elude security is legendary.
Check out the (very cool) timelapse video of the meetup below!
We always welcome your input on where to hold the next meetup. It’s time to announce the next offical Chive meetup will be held in Austin, TX, November 15th. Details shortly.
