theCHIVE San Diego meetup is a GO!

The date and location is finally set for our Memorial Day Weekend San Diego meetup! This Sunday, May 27th from 8-11pm, theCHIVERS are making a road trip down to Basic Bar in the Gaslamp Quarter to wreck shop with our service men and women.

We’ll be handing out Military KCCO’s to the first 100 sailors and troops through the door with Military ID. Also, all military personnel will be given a wristband for yourself and a +1 to drink your faces off, for free, on us. No corporate sponsors, we stick to the code.

You DO NOT have to be in the military to attend but this event is to honor our troops so they will be given priority and we invite all civilians to buy our sailors and soldiers a drink. This is their weekend.

For all the info, check out our San Diego Meetup Facebook page. We’re not selling tickets so RSVP’ing won’t guarantee admittance. We know this is going to be pretty crazy but isn’t that the point?

We’re looking to raising a glass with all our fellow Chivers and Chivettes. We’ll see you on Sunday!

    • Chris

      Where do you work? I want to go support a fellow chiver.

    • Bob Lee Swagger

      Nobody is "buzzing about it" dude. I live in The East Village, a few blocks away, and nobody is talking about it. The Chive is awesome, but let's not act like this is some huge festival taking the world by storm.

  • aaa

    Please post the bar tab after. I really want to see the damage you guys end up doing.

  • jeckly

    Damn…wish I lived closer!! Actually considering flying down from Ontario!

  • meh

    Makes me laugh out of pity anytime I see Americans thanking their army for anything. Wake the fuck up! They're not protecting you. They're not making you enjoy your freedom. They're slaves so your government can have more oil and your corporations can get more money. Thought we were over this 10 years ago.

    • Jouhker

      Envy is an ugly color on you! Our military are the best men and women in the world at what they do. I'm not saying the fight is always right, but our servicemen and women are the most professional there are. Everyone is a slave to someone. Either the government, your boss, your family, etc. Even the least free Americans are better off than most of the world.

      • Korea

        There not the best, just a shit load of you

        • Wow

          North Korea? If so, we'll gladly delay that shipment of food.

          • stonewall_79


      • meh

        Envy? I have nothing to envy America for. My 3rd world country armymen instruct America's army on how to wage war since USA didn't lead a proper war since Vietnam. Look it up. And no, not everyone is a slave to someone, just because you are.

        • meh

          Oh, and I don't really care how much people downvote me. You can claim to "Keep Calm & Chive On" all you want, but until you recognize that there is no reasonable explanation to be in a war you are not a Chiver. You are a conglomerate slave.

          • Frank

            No reasonable reason to be in a war?
            Are you a 6 year old girl? because you are as naive as one.

            • meh

              Nope, not really. Seems like you are. OMG WE GOTTA BOMB DA SHIT OUT OF CHILDREN IN A DESERT OR SOME EVIL GROUP OF DESERTMEN IS GONNA KILL US ALL AND STEAL OUR COUNTRY FROM US. Pathetic that anyone with a brain could believe that.

              • Dan

                Oh, that's clearly what we say… don't hate us cause we have abundance of everything…. and you evil group ov desertman was trained by our Special Forces back in the 80's cause you needed help fighting off the Russians… So, you are a slave to the US… deal with it…

        • stonewall_79

          hahahaha and when you woke up still had your finger on your ass hahaha you are a fucking loser.

    • Ranger

      It did start 10 years ago and we are winning…..Trust me 😉 I've been there. Didn't see much oil though, but the Chinese sure got a hold of it.

      • meh

        10 years ago? You mean when your own government decided to take down the WTC and blame someone else for it? Good for ya for winning that war!

        • B!!!

          It's apparent you are an advocate for free speech. You're welcome. Even though your rants hold little value , you are able to make them .these rights are protected by men and women like myself. So I'll raise a glass , say God bless America and KCCO! Enjoy being pissed off and lonely. Cheers

          • meh

            It's great you make all of these assumptions when your own country has one of the lowest free speech factors in the world (comparable to Uganda, Kosovo and Mozambique according to the UN). Should check your facts before you state that someone's "rants hold little value".

            I'm neither pissed of nor lonely, just not delusional like you are. Cheers!

          • kevin

            Hell yea. Tell him again.

    • http://www.facebook.com/haschen Alex Haschen

      Chive Admin, please remove this ass clowns post. this monkey fucker probably bashs Jesus on Christmas too.

      • meh

        No, I don't. Since I don't believe in Jesus and if I did I'd know he was actually born in March. Damn, brainwashed people.

        • Woop

          No need to be offensive even if you're right. that's just bad manners. And there's no reason not to thank service men/women. They go in thinking they're serving their country and that is true. We should thank them for that. Just because the country's leaders effed up is not entirely their fault. Everyone in the country is responsible for that SNAFU.

          • meh

            If someone is as stupid as some people here are, I damn right have a need to be offensive. Especially when people like that shape the world. If you enlist for the army, you are either completely oblivious to what's going on and where you're going (i.e. not serving your country in the way you thought you are) or well aware of it and don't give a damn (i.e. you like bombing the shit out of helpless children and then telling the world they're insurgents cause they held a stick and you thought it's a bazooka).

            • Marine

              How can you make any speculation on something when you haven't seen it first hand?

    • Big P

      Meh you are a reatard.
      Envy the country that has heros, Pity the countries that need them.

      • meh

        That's why I pity the US! Thanks for proving my point, sir!

    • meh

      Anyways, I'm done replying to this and going into arguments, since I find it harder and harder to keep calm while doing so.

      All I'm trying to say is that you're hypocrites if you think the army ever does and good ever anywhere. It's literally the complete opposite of being calm and chiving on. If you support armies, you make people suffer – simple as that.

      • Reagan

        Hey meh which country do u live in ? Where are u from ?

      • stonewall_79

        Yea you need to get the fuck out of here and never return.

    • http://www.facebook.com/sgtjyoung Jeremiah Young

      Pretty sure I've been in the Marine corps for 7 years and been to Iraq twice and have never bombed the shit out of children. Maybe I missed the day we all did that

      • NOT KCCO

        You need a reality check, it happens on a daily basis.

    • whatever

      Did I just wander into youtube?

    • thefrostygirl

      Hey I don't give a fuck if you don't support the war or whatever, but there's no reason to badmouth our men and women who serve, it's just fucked up.

    • B!!!

      I had to read this original rant only once to realize who the delusionalL one is. Contrary to your belief,the military of this country serves many roles. One of them is to protect the great land we call the United States. We also serve as foreign aid, i.e. Haiti, but according to you we probably bombed themt too.No we sure as hell do not make anyone enjoy their freedom, they do that on their own because its a choice they have here in America.This is a privilege denied to many. I assure you i'm not a "slave". Most of your rant is derived from personal hatred and some false sense of arrogance. Wherever you are from you should meddle in your own business, deal with your country's problem. Because here in 'Merica we are going to continue to persevere and enjoy our freedoms. If you'd like to dicuss this further i'll see you down in SD.I'll be the the 6'4'' 230lb US Marine drinking , laughing and enjoying life. KCCO

    • Sumner

      Hope you choke

    • SjKim

      It is we the military members that allow freedom of speech as such.
      Hate or love

  • madskaster

    We need a San Francisco meet up

    • Chuck

      Ok, we'll see you at Mister Fisters.

  • boo

    come to new york for fucks sake

  • Don D


  • whosyopapi

    I have an XL Mens theCHIVE and XL Men's D.A.R shirts I have worn ONCE that have shrunken a bit and do not fit as well anymore. I replaced them, but these ones are sitting around with nobody to appreciate them. I'm looking for someone who would trade any women's small (kcco, bfm, dar, etc.) for either of them. My chivette girlfriend would appreciate it!

    • peanut3603

      I have a womens BFM (got the wrong size for the chick i was seeing then we quit talking, its a L meant toget small) but it doesnt look like a big shirt plus im sure you can wash in hot water to shrink…. my email is thisisnotpeanut@hotmail.com

  • James

    How does one go about getting a Military KCCO t-shirt while they are deployed during Memorial Day weekend?

  • Kerry Daniel

    Now I served in the active military for 8 years and I don't think The Chive really knows what they are getting themselves into especially if the Marines and SEALs make it out. The tab is going to be insane and expect a few bar fights. Ladies do you part for America, sleep with a military member that night. If you don't the terrorist win. RLTW <2>

    • TheCureForHope

      Yea, I'm in San Diego and I've been waiting for a SD meetup for a while, but this one just sounds like a shitstorm. I support the troops, but an open bar tab with this group is going to cause this meetup to go south quick.

    • VertigoElation

      Its The Chive and Chivers are awesome therefore there won't be fighting. Although I agree that they don't know what they are getting themselves into. Open bar for Military? Even if its only the first 100 military that get the open bar. Their wallet is entering the danger zone.

  • Silky

    Great to see Chive showing and rallying a little
    appreciation of your troops. Every bit, in whatever
    way should be accepted in the spirit that it's being
    offered. Better something, than nothing.
    To those who seek to ridicule the idea… Don't hate,
    I'm spewing I miss it by 2 weeks.

  • Bamer36

    Damn I had to be in Afghanistan for this.. oh well someone have a drink for me.

  • Big P

    badass, but i don't think you know that you are getting the chive into. Us sailors tend to wreck house pretty damn good. you should do one in Jacksonville FL. i get back from deployment this weekend. would be a perfect time. and god bless all the troops and sailors deployed.

  • BruceWayne

    I would never be welcomed.
    Too bad.

    I'd be cool.

  • Ricky Ross

    Would love to make it out to SD for this. But where the hell is the NYC meet? Have you finalized the location for the June meet-up?
