View Full Version : East Coast CoGregation??


Dark Prince

So, in light of totally high-jacking the term from the other thread I have hence forth created the East Coast CoGregation.

So, where shall our East Coast CoGregation take place because those Midwesterner people aren't the only ones out there.

Show yourselves, East Coasters, I know your out there.

I'm down near D.C., but in light of being on the verge of losing my home, trips seem a bit out of the question at the moment. (Besides, I'd be a very boring person to meet, I imagine - I don't drink, smoke or anything of that stuff.)

Anyway, I voted Atlantic City because I live in VA but if NY wins then I could probably make it.

Pffft, I don't do any of those either so you won't be alone. The meet-up we had at Kamalot's house was actually really damn fun and there was no alcohol. As long as there's video games I think gamers can be pretty outgoing.

Like you can do much in the midwest anyway. ;)

That's why there's an other option there. We don't have to centralize in one city though it would obviously be a good way to gather as a group.

Hey, if you east and mid coasters are thinking of being accomodating, it would be nice if this and the mid west meet up was around the same time, that way I could go to both and kind of turn it into a really great vacation / meet up/ travel type thing.

Yes, 27/12 is a big day, but not for the whole of Scotland. I can think of tens of thousands of Hamilton Accies, St. Mirren, Dundee United, Greenock Morton, Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian, etc. fans who would disagree.

And by the way, I'm a total hun, so there's only one outcome I'll settle for - a Rangers win with at least one Celtic player being sent off.

Newark?? Does anyone outside of NJ really think Newark is safe to walk around in? Ok, so those who live in NJ don't think so either...I think it's safer than walking around Camden...and I go to school there...let's leave Newark off that list...

That said, I find it quite accurate.

To James: As for why there's a "West" and "West Coast", but only an "East Coast", it's because all the stuff in the East that isn't on the coast or part of the South is called the Midwest, because once upon a time, that shit was on the western border. Haha.

Virginia has always been a Southern state.


Lived in the Northern VA, DC metro area most of my life.

Virginia is right on the Mason-Dixon line, yes is technically a Southern state (even contianing the captitol of the Confederate States of America), but if you tell that to someone from Alabama or Louisiana that you will get laughed at.

Really we are East Coast, Mid Atlantic. It kind of depends what part of VA you are talking about, but you would be hard pressed to find the cliche southerner in VA. You have Northern VA which contains Fairfax (use your pipboy for reference), the second richest area in the States (think of an East Coast Orange County for lawyers, government contractors, and congressmen) and it is one of the most metropolitan areas in the States I have experienced. Norfolk, which is about as south as you can get geopraphically in the State, but is completely dominated by the military. Richmond, which probably is about as cliche southern as the state can get due to the tobacco farms, but it is also infested with a prominent punk/ indie scene due to VCU. Then there is western VA, which is more country mountain men than southern, due to it being isolated by the Appalachians. That is where you would find the southern draw, everywhere else, however, you would not.

Back on topic, a Mid-Atlantic-ish city would more than likely be ideal. Somewhere between Atlantic City and DC.

I realize that the state has changed quite a bit from the Confederate days. I was just responding to another poster who was surprised that Virginia would be included in the South. Traditionally Virginia has been a Southern state, going all the way back to when Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy, as you said.

Obviously the makeup of the state has changed significantly, something that the talking heads commented on quite a bit during the election this year.

How about Philadelphia? Seems like a more realistic choice then Atlantic City? anyone else agree? Have most of you ever been to AC? It's not all it's cracked up to be, Esp in the winter.

Philadelphia has excellent bar scenes, Manayunk, Old City, Ritten House.

I'm not only going to say Philadelphia, But I'm also going to suggest a place...

North Bowl (http://www.northbowlphilly.com/)

It's sort of a hipster bar/bowling alley. Check out the photos.

Full lounge upstairs. Drinks. Interesting food. Music. Arcade games and pool tables. Of course bowling. I figure, people are driving/flying far. Gambling isn't really that much fun and it creates the opportunity to LOSE more money.

After some games of bowling there is plenty to do in the northern liberties area or any of the big bar scenes are a short taxi or car ride away.
