We had the first ever Ridiculously Extraordinary Meetup on Wednesday and it was great. I was honestly expecting maybe 4 or 5 people to show up, but about 15 passed through. I hung out from 7pm until about 1am. OK, that's a lie, my bus was 10 minutes late so I got there at 7:05. :) I figured everybody would leave early since it was a weeknight, but many stayed until around Midnight! Woohoo! You all rock.

Special thanks to Brigitte and Lucus for bringing pizza and a vegan sandwich! :)

Also, thanks to @GrantKMartin, @RickRivera, @Jenny_Smythe, @IgniteAdventure, @Yearlyglot, @KaariB, @sigsegfalt, @RNast, and sorry to everybody who I don't have twitter IDs for.

And thanks to Gold Star just because they rule. Maybe most people weren't paying attention, but a lot of metal was coming through the jukebox. (Now you know why I call it the best jukebox in the world.)
