    Things to do before/after the cruise (70K) (MOAR LISTS!)

    by X-Thor » Wed Oct 17, 2012 10:46 pm

    Yes, this will be a list.

    Also, let's see how many post does it take to derail the thread =P

    Anyway, I'm thinking many of us will arrive/depart at least a day before/after the cruise departs/arrives. So I thought we could meet for certain events, both before and after the cruise.

    I hereby propose the following list, so you may add suggestions and, if possible, wether you'd like to attend.

    THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE CRUISE

    -Metal Beach Party

    THINGS TO DO AFTER THE CRUISE

    -Nicko McBrian's Rib Restaurant
    70K 2013 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2120)
    70K 2014 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2565)

    In perpetual post-cruise depression/pre-cruise anxiety.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE CRUISE

    - Preparty (already talked about it with Arlequina and Pamela for the Saturday, don't know what else will be planned for the Sunday, apart the beach party)
    - Drinking and meeting some metallers in some other places than the beach party as I can't go
    - Nicko McBrian's Rib Restaurant (well, if someone is planning to do it at this time)


    THINGS TO DO AFTER THE CRUISE

    - Sleeping
    - Nicko McBrian's Rib Restaurant (if it isn't planned before the cruise)

    There's no way you can manage to go to beach party? I can try to help you.
    Where are you going to stay in Miami?

    Well, I can't push myself cause of some troubles with my shoulders, but if someone can find a wheelchair in the area of the beach party and push me, there's no problem :D

    - Costume Store
    - Action Figure Store (maybe Spencer's)
    - Comics Store
    - Liquor Store

    I'd like to go to a brewery or a good brew pub. Anyone know if there are any near the South Beach area?

    Don't know about South Beach but I went to Titanic Brewery and Pub near the University last year. Easily accessible from the metrorail. May try to go to World of Beer, which is also off the metrorail. Also check out the Burger and Beer Joint. There's one in Miami Beach.

    Well, if there are some good shops around my hotel, why not. I could join you, but as I can't walk for a too long distance and walk quite slow, that would bore you I think.

    You never saw me in a fancy dress shop. I think you can take about 50 laps around the block, and I'll still be trying the first costume.

    Don't know about South Beach but I went to Titanic Brewery and Pub near the University last year. Easily accessible from the metrorail. May try to go to World of Beer, which is also off the metrorail. Also check out the Burger and Beer Joint. There's one in Miami Beach.


    I went to the B&B joint last year and it was awesome.

    Well, if there are some good shops around my hotel, why not. I could join you, but as I can't walk for a too long distance and walk quite slow, that would bore you I think.


    Why don't we try and find you a wheelchair and just take turns pushing you? Would that be OK?

    No problem for me. I'll try to ask the hotel's reception or concierge where we could find a wheelchair, when arriving. If someone else has an idea of a place to find a wheelchair, it would be welcome :bangers:

    If there is anything at all around South Beach that's not early morning, I'm certainly in

    It's not very metal, but a game of beach volleyball would be fun...

    Yep, that what I thought, a regular wheelchair wont be suitable for beach. That means that I'll contact the link you gave me and see if I can rent one of those just for the beach party. Never mind for the shopping, I'll rest on the Saturday to be ok for the pre-preparty with the Folk/Turisas fans on Saturday evening :viking: :bangers:

    Well, after few hours of thought, I'll finally give up the beach party :cry: There are several reasons for that:

    1. The wheelchair issue. To rent one of it would cost me something more and I haven't a lot of money. The place where I could eventually rent one will be probably closed on Sunday. I just don't know how I could manage to get it. Then, my hotel isn't at Miami Beach, so, how to go to the beach party with the wheelchair?

    2. As I said, I haven't so much money. As I have to use taxis the most of the time (from airport to the hotel, from the hotel to the bar for the pre-party with Folk/Turisas fans on Saturday, from the bar to the hotel, and so on) so I prefer to not spend too much money for transportations (I can't use buses) and more for drink :beerbang:

    3. Last but not least, the tiring issue. As I'm going to travel from Switzerland on the Friday, spend some time at the hotel's bar on that evening, plus the Saturday and hopefully the Sunday evening, I also need to rest before the cruise.

    And well, we will have the time to meet each other while the cruise afterall :wank: At least, for the ones I wont to meet between the Friday and the Monday :mrgreen:

    Of course you know your own limits best, but I thought I'd point out that the paths onto the beach where we'll be are hard-packed. Until you get very close to the water, it's not overly "sandy" sand, if that makes sense.
