To borrow the phrase from our lovely seatexan, "Hooray for Insiders Mini Meet Ups!"


With the latest iteration of Marriott Rewards Insiders, we are now able to collaborate on documents, woo hoo!  In keeping with the idea of jsucool76's collaborative document 2017 Upcoming Stays and vaboywnder's Lounge Review Master List , I thought I'd start another collaborative document where we can have a place to centralize our "Insiders Mini Meet Ups."  I know that there have been many along the way by now (and hopefully there will be many more to come!)  So with this, I would like to encourage all of us use this space to post a photo (along with a discussion/blog link if available) of our meet ups.


Let's organize them by year, shall we?  As far as I know, jerrycoin was the first Insider to create this laudable past time and it occurred between he and our beloved nuhusker in 2012, followed shortly thereafter with a London gab and imbibe fest between jerrycoin and our favorite retired scientist, arkwright.  So I'll start this off by taking the liberty of posting these two early meet ups here, and end with my latest meet up from just last month.  I hope you'll all follow my lead by posting your own Insiders Meet Ups here as well.


Below, I've posted yearly titles, and would encourage you to place your meet ups under the appropriate year in which they occurred.  This way we'll have a historical account, a sort of Insiders Meet Up "Year Book", if you will, to look back on.  Post away, and let's have some fun!




NU and Jerrycoin meet, what FUN!

erc and arkwright telling tales and tossing back some cold ones in the District - June 2017

"There's few things I like more than meeting with a brilliant intellectual that's not an egghead. arkwright is that man. Yeah, he could have dazzled me with tales of pathogens and the exciting difference between autoclaving and asepsis, but instead he chatted about sports, travel, movies, and a whole variety of fascinating topics all the while downing probably a keg of DC's finest craft beers at ChurchKey one of the District top beer halls (and showing no effects, brilliant to the last drop). This is what Insiders is all about, good times and great info. Keep on keepin' on gang."  -Erc
