Beers with Laurence

Earlier this evening I had the pleasure of meeting my fellow San Diegan Laurence at a local pub for a few rounds of beer. I think it was Rich In Tampa who commented that you usually encounter no real surprises when you meet someone from the board in person for the first time. I believe Rich is certainly correct in this case as Laurence was as friendly, down to earth, smart and funny as he is in his posts.

Anyone else up for an ER forum pub crawl?

Re: Beers with Laurence

I think we bandied Carlsbad Village around, but just to warn you, we did a lot of guffawing, so be prepared to attract some attention!

califdreamer is a perfect pub crawl partner, if he can put up with a big mouth like me, he can get along with anybody!

Laurence is a cool guy! I would agree, he's most definitely down to earth and friendly. He has a beautiful family as well

Re: Beers with Laurence

Has there ever been any attempt at creating state/local ER groups, for people to get together for social gatherings, etc.? perhaps make a new forum for the state/local ER groups, and have a post for every group. When a group has planned or wants to plan an activity, they post to it and go from there.

Re: Beers with Laurence

I think that's a good idea, maybe for larger states it could be broken up. It would take T-Al two days to get to my house!

Is it as cold at your place as it is at kumquat's house?

I'm all for picking a time and place in SD/OC and meeting for happy hour.

Re: Beers with Laurence

I thought everyone on this earth must know what the OC is. Just shows us So. Cal types shouldn't assume that everyone is in on the know.

Califdreamer I think you left a like out of that sentence. Shouldn't it read

It's like you know like ....

I recently noticed that I have become guilty with overusing "like" in every second sentence. Is the abuse of the word "like" a So. California thing or common to all over California?

It's easy to fall into. I wonder if newguy is drawling "y'all" in place of "you's guys"?

Here in The City, we'd say its somewhere west of the Hudson. Out past New Jersey. But why would anyone go there?
