    I just picked this up of of the nerd "news wire."

    http://trekmovie.com/2008/06/29/star...-in-september/

    Looks like we are going to have to give Quark's a good old send off.

    Warp Core Breech anyone?

        This is really sad. Quark's has been apart of the my groups defcon experience since dc9 and it's where we start our sunday nights. We'll have to give the place a real send off.

          WHAT?! Well, then I guess we'll ALL have to get thrown out and not asked back, then.

            It's rumored that humping the photon torpedoes is a favorite way to be thrown out.

                I don't know. We've done some things that should have gotten us banned for life but haven't. The first year we were there, we consumed more breaches as a group than we thought were humanly possible. During all of this, we were actively engaging the folks walking around in costume. That night I think there was a ferengi and two klingons (one male and one female) walking around.

                One of our group started a lovely round of flirting with the woman dressed as a klingon. I would have thought she was just being polite, but she kept coming around to talk to us. This progressed through the evening until he finally said something that I guess shocked her. He whispered something in ear to which she smiled, blushed (hard to do in the dark makeup) and left. She never came back. We were sure that we were getting thrown out at that point but nothing came of it.

                To this day, he won't tell us what he said. Personally, I think he just doesn't remember.

                  I remember the first year I went (Defcon 10), we had a waiter named Greg who was nothing but nice to us rowdy bunch of geeks. I also vaguely remember drinking at least one full sized warp-core myself on occasion

                  So what night do we want to descend on Quark's? I plan on going as much as I can! It is fairly decently priced food for the area, and I am sure they will let plenty of our antics slide now that it is certain doom for the poor place.

                  Either way I am packing my Star Trek uniform

                    In honor of the occasion, this is the infamous Quark's story that has haunted me ever since I first went to Quark's durring defcon.

                          Seconded. That is classic.

                          Yeah, I'm really surprised at how great the service has always been, given the rowdiness and tone of the crowd that can gather. Though there has been a couple of years when the food wasn't the greatest.

                            Man.. this is bad news day or what?! I think I've been to Quarks every year since DefCon 5. Even if I'm in Vegas for other events, Quarks is a must-visit.
