Hi everyone,
I'll be in the US for the next two weeks, and I'll be spending a few days in each one of these cities: Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC.
If you have some places you recommend or some fellow TGM players that want to meet, I'm interested

@KevinDDR I asumme you'd be fit for being a tour guide, right?

Which days will you be in DC @Tomek ? We could meet up at Xanadu Games in Laurel.

I'll be in DC on this weekend, 11th and 12th of august.
Great, we can meet there, do you know how to get to Laurel from downtown Washington ?

You can either take I-295 north or US 1 north. It's at 198 Laurel Race Track Road, Laurel, MD

I'll be there pretty much all day on Saturday. It's $15 to get in,$5 more if you want to enter the Puyo Puyo Tetris tournament.

I don't have a car here in the US, so I was thinking more about some way of going there using public transport.
Saturday afternoon sounds great, I'll be arriving in DC around 1PM, so I can be there a bit later.

Ah, okay. There's a commuter rail that goes to Laurel Park, but looking further into it it doesn't appear to operate on weekends.

I could always just give you a ride.

We played doubles for 2 hours and the closest we got was 299 - 300

If it hadn't been vanilla MAME with a keyboard and an 8-way stick I'm sure we would have had at least one completion.

The meetup was really fun but I lost at the PPT tournament
I think that installing Mame on one of Xanadu's PC was still a great idea even if the setup wasn't great.
We were so close to clear doubles a few times that I was so pissed we didn't have enough time to try a bit more.
