Yes, friends, it's that time again! The chance to see if your fellow Amazin' Avenue posters are actually real people that can operate (semi)normally within the bounds of normal society is here at last!

It’s that time again, time for Amazin’ Avenue’s annual AARGH, the Amazin' Avenue Regional Gathering Here. What exactly does that entail? Based on data collected in the past:

  • Drinking beer
  • Bemoaning the state of the Mets, past, present, and future
  • Drinking beer
  • Getting excited about the Mets' minor leaguers and the fact that hope springs eternal
  • Blaming Beltran
  • Stats
  • Praising Dickey
  • Drinking beer

Based on recent events, other topics that are likely to come up include:

  • Bemoaning the state of the Mets, past, present, and future
  • Jay Bruce
  • Getting excited about the Mets' minor leaguers and the fact that hope springs eternal
  • Jay Bruce
  • The bullpen
  • Blaming Beltran
  • Praising Dickey
  • Drinking beer

The 2017 AARGH is tentatively scheduled for 5 PM on Saturday, February 11 upstairs at Blarney Rock Pub.

With these Amazin' Avenue meet-ups, we've had decent turnouts in the past, and I've met more than a few posters and site contributors (I've personally met about 15-20 different people on a few different occasions). Nothing against the people I've already met, some on multiple occasions, but I'd also like to see some new faces. Come on down. If they can stand our stat frauding, bring a friend; the more, the merrier. At the end of the day, it's an excuse to get out, drink a little (optional), and engage in educated baseball discussion in real time (mandatory).
