I know this is short notice, but yesterday a couple of us were talking about going to see "Meet the Spartans" so we decided to turn it into a meetup. Next Saturday, February 2, we're going to Fridays for dinner, then to Gameworks, then to see "Meet the Spartans". I figured we could meet at Fridays around 3:30 or 4PM, go to gameworks afterwards. At 9 o'clock, when Gameworks kicks out the minors, we could go see the movie. The theater is right next store.

Hope to see everyone there, as usual, if you need my number, just message me. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to post them.

*edit* This meetup is cosplay optional, if you have cat ears wear them, I know I'm bringing my cat ears. Plus, will probably go see "The Eye" instead of "Meet the Spartans". Meet the Spartans is suppose to be terrible and I don't want to waste $8.

If I can trade shifts with somebody at work I might come. I'm kind tired of having 2 days in a row off. Maybe I'll try to trade my Thursday.

wish I could, but it's a bit short notice, not to mention my dad's coming back home from China the day before. He won't want to go out that far right after.

Dang. I would love to go. I guess I can see if my boss can get me to work Friday night and Sunday morning/night I guess. But this is kinda short notice for me too. I'd love to see that movie too! So long! *goes to call her boss*

I think I'll end up passing on this. If y'all were going to be at Gameworks around 9-ish I'd drop in but it sounds like when I get off work is probably right when everyone will be in the movie.

But I'm doing my darndest to make it to the Chinese New Year meetup! ;)

I'll edit the first post, buy I forgot to mention that this is a cosplay optional meetup, everyone should know by now that my meetups are always cosplay optional.

Plus I heard that "Meet the Spartans" is terrible so I think we should go see "The Eye" instead. It comes out this Friday, plus its a remake of a Chinese movie, that's sorta Japanesse. Well closer than "Meet the Spartans". Give me your opinions.

Another "THE..." movie eh?.....At least Shamalan didn't do this one....he's good....but not on those kinds of films...

*thinks back to "The Village" and "The Cave"* ::shudders::.....two of THE worst movies in my opinion...


If it wasn't HIGHLY apparent enough.....I'm VERY picky when it comes to horror/suspense movies.......I should write my own...mewhewhew (XD)

ahh, I'm not gonna be able to come. Nobody would be able to come at last minute. I'd have to have one of my friends with me since my parents don't trust you guys. Its just the fact that everybody is probably older than us and we would "get left behind" as my mom put it.

I would've loved to come, Gameworks is really fun and I've never been to Friday's before. Ah well, I'll be going to laser tag at least... hopefully >.>

I'll be going, but I'm not sure about the movie. I might not have enough and I'm not big on horror movies.
