So... back on topic...

I'm thinking it's time to think about moving the meet. I was thinking the Sparky's on Wedge. We had a meet there years ago, but it was kind of a mess (some of you might remember the leaky roof ). But a year or so ago, the place was totally remodeled, and it's pretty nice now w/ pool tables, etc. I don't remember if they've got a back room we might be able to get, but I'm thinking we should at least check it out.

Granted, Sparky's food is pretty much the same as Bully's, but it's at least a little bit different. Plus, there should be plenty of parking, and it's a lot closer for the Carson folks to get to (not to mention it's like half a mile from my house )

Thoughts?

As long as they're willing to ensure seating for ~25 of us or more in the summer, I think it's a good idea.

Since when has Bully's been willing to ensure seating for 25? They're usually willing to ensure use like two small tables if it's busy.

Thumbs up

Bully's is super convenient for me, but even so I am am ready for someplace new. I say give Sparky's (or someplace) a try. I know I'm a minority having and bringing kids, but some foosball tables, dart boards, and/or video games would be nice. Actually pool tables could be kinda cool for the adults too maybe.

Also Bully's hassling the under-21 members is a little annoying, although that seems to be fixed by me playing "Dad".

Yea sorry about that. I didn't mean to cause any problems. I kind of thought that showing up every week may be a hinderance for you guys, but that door guy at Bully's is a douche. Anyways thanks Dad!!! lol...

Hey you aren't the only "son" around here. Luckily I don't have to do it, but it is a bunk policy either way.

Speaking of pool tables, Has anyone been to cue and Cushion on keystone. The food is pretty good and they have games for the kiddies and adults.

Some of the guys used to meet over there after the regular meet at Bully's. IIRC, the place is just too small for us to use it as a regular meet location.

I think change of venue is good. I've been sick of Bully's food for like a year now, but they've always seemed so accommodating it hasn't seemed worth it to leave.

But, if we want to try out that Sparky's, I'd be down.

I think a few of us should probably try to pre-meet tonight or tomorrow night over there to check it out and ask their manager if they'd be willing to reserve us some space every Thursday.

Who's in, and tonight or tomorrow?

Please... no worries! It's just a stupid policy, but I bet there's a back-story behind it. I don't fault the doorman - he's just doing what he's told. When I was 16 I was the "doorman" at one of the early Chuck E. Cheeses. One of my duties was to keep out underage (<18 back then) kids who were not with their parents - a real popular job. One of my other duties was to dress up and be The Rat for birthday parties.

Tomorrow would be better than tonight for me. If we do the pre-meet meet tomorrow night, I'll go.

Hot waitresseses are double-plus good!

And yeah, what happened to Hooters? I would think a Hooters would do great in Reno.

Yup. Wedge Parkway and Mt. Rose Highway. I think that's near Galena High School, but I don't know since I've never actually been to Galena High School.
