Upcoming Events at the Avocado

As exhausting as this year has felt, it’s hard to believe it’s already November and yet it is.  The end of the year is still two months away, but there are going to be a lot of things going on here in that time and we thought it appropriate to give you all a heads up.

First up, is the upcoming DC Meetup.  It will be occurring on Thursday, November 15th at 7:30pm at the Lucky Bar (Connecticut Ave).  We’ve been avoiding sticky-ing meetups since the menu reshuffling, but all info about the latest meetups will always be available at the link in the menu above.

Next, a reminder that Giftmas is on December 2nd and the last day to get your gifts in is November 30th so make sure to get your gifts in by then.

Finally, it may seem early to be thinking about end of the year lists (I sure thought so), but since we were caught off guard by it last year and we’ve already seen one pop up in the drafts folder, we thought it would be as good as time as any to remind you all about The Pits.  For those of you who are new to the site or who don’t remember, The Pits are our annual awards shindig hosted by beloved member The Kappa honoring the best in commenting, writing on the site, and pop culture.  The last point is the most relevant point as in an effort to curtail everyone posting their own Top 10 (or 20 or 100) lists, we ask that you refrain from doing so.

In December, we will be launching designated threads as part of The Pits for Best in Anime, Comics, Books, Games, Movies, Music, Podcasts, and TV.  If there are any lists on there you think should be added, we would love to hear them now or come the official announcement thread, but we will be deleting the posts from people who ignore this request (there’s always somebody).  Just remember, if you are ever unsure about a thread idea, one of the mods is always willing to answer your question.

Thanks again and we look forward to spending the last couple months of the year with you all (and hopefully 2019 as well).
