I spent a few hours (okay, seven) last night hanging out with the MeFi crew in Berkeley. The meet up was at the Albatross, where people are serious about their games. As in, don’t come and waste table space if aren’t planning a Connect Four deathmatch. Apparently it’s close to the graduate student housing for UC Berkeley and has a fiendishly difficult and popular pub quiz, held at the civilized hour of 8:30 pm as opposed to some quizzes I could name. Several inventive games of Mao and a few games of darts were played, and a large quantity of beer and pizza was consumed. The women of course provided the flair.
