Around what time do you guys think the meetup will be ending?

The meet up ends when everyone leaves... i don't remember when the last few people left last time but it was
late... i'd say maybe 7 p.m. or when everyone decided to leave...

Last year was too fun if I'm remembering the right thing. If it's when we went to the Water Tower and played around on the escalators, then yeah, that was entertaining. I didn't get home till almost 11 I think.

I don't know if I would be able to make it at 11am, but I will most likely be at the festival, because I usually go to it.
So I may or may not see you guys depending on if I could find you or not or if I can manage to make it at the meeting time. But anyway if not, you might still see me there!

Well I was texting with my friend yesterday and it sounds like he's probably able to go which means I should be able to go. My mom really doesn't want me heading down there alone. He's looking forward to the snowball fight :D Now I have two weeks to find me a good Doctor Who jacket in the thrift stores cuz I'm gonna do that cosplay again, it's a good cold weather one ;)

So We had a BLAST technically this year at the meet up. It's still a few months away from the Chinese New Year. However, since I made the Otaku on Ice meetup so late, I wanted to get a jump on this one!

I need to get information on when the festival is, but my idea is go to the festival, then go downtown and etc, then storm ABC. that'll be a 2 month gap. XD

I'd like to see how many people have interest!


February 10th.
11AM: Chinatown meet at the statues. Go eat lunch
1AM: go to the parade
After parade: Snowball in the Statue area
After Snowball fight: Go downtown!!!!!!

:lol:

Hey I'd like to go most likely i'll be able to!

“But bless us, things may be lovable that are not altogether handsome. […] I have seen many an excellent matron, who could never in her best days have been handsome, and yet she had a packet of yellow love-letters in a private drawer, and sweet children showered kisses on her sallow cheeks. […] Yes! Thank God; human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it does not wait for beauty – it flows with resistless force and brings beauty with it.”

Well think of it this way....if someone goes all "stealthy-ninja" on us all and pegs you with a snowball...you won't have to worry about your costume getting all wet/ruined etc.


*Besides it's easier to run away from said ninjas in normal street clothes* (XD)

**Though I'm not one to be running....muhahahaha**

I'm trying to drag some friends along. I can't wait, this should be fun!
