We met TONS of new people and got to see people we hadn't seen in a long while, such as texwriterbear, slothel, and delmarmar Also in attendance were profundis (apparently - didn't get a chance to meet up), thetarnishedowl, mat_t (I think), faghatesgods & mondragon (Matthew saw them both on separate days from afar),
The day we were together at Vorelli's for bloody Marys, the power kept failing throughout the Cape from allowed brownouts. One of the cooling towers at the nearest nuclear plant wasn't cooling as quickly, so they diverted all the power for cooling to one cooling tower and shut the second off, which took some time and created brownouts.
Even still, we got to see some shows, including Miss Richfield 1981, one of our favorites! Those tickets were for Matthew's birthday gift. And we were both well enough to have a nice dinner at the Crown & Anchor and then head to the show! She never disappoints and always brings in some fresh, unexpected stuff. Very fun!
On the second and last Saturday of Bear Week, we decided to stay till around dinner time. The previous times we had been to Ptown in the off season, we discovered that leaving later in the day allowed everyone else to get off the highway. Our drive went from 7-9 hours (with everyone else leaving the Cape) down to a normal 4.5-5 hour drive home. We spent the day shopping around, which we didn't do during the week, and spending time with a couple of friends of ours from NYC.
