If it's like the one out here, its for underage as well, but they do serve alcohol. (I personally hate the one out here because of all the underage kids that drink and smoke)

Oh okay. If I can legally go I might as well ask my parents...

I'll have to ask the Spot when I call to book, probably tomorrow. I want to find out exactly when my classes start first, because I'm probably going to have a Wednesday night class. I don't think they allow underage but then again I could be wrong, I've only just started going there (the theatre company I sometimes work with did a show there for a few weeks this summer, that's how I found out about the place).

After Sarah's meetup (part 2), I've found out a little more information about the place. First off, the biggest room will charge $60/hour not $45/hour. We did managed to get a middle sized room, but since there's so many people in there, it got very hot and well... smelly. Though I asked one of the store owners of the place, he told me that if we come on a weekday (Mon-Fri), he said it's cheaper than a weekend. So, I was thinking of making a Friday night meetup. I know everyone will be starting classes soon, but I believe everyone wants to hang out on an evening on Friday.

So how's that sound with everyone? Friday Night like 6pm?

Friday is good, no classes here either. :D Though getting a ride might be an issue.

I'm open every Friday except the 1st or 8th of September (Can't remember which >_>). I'll be out of state then. >_>

Sounds good to me. At least by that point I'll be done with moving into school and all that jazz. Plus I'll have my CTA card! YOSH!!!!

*pout*

Unfortunately I doubt I'll be able to do that because the next day I have a very VERY long day (have to be in Skokie at 6 am for a CTA event I volunteer for every year, then after that finishes we're heading out to Indiana for a wedding and I won't be home til midnight...) so I really need to make that an early night. Fooey!

Guess I'll just have to whoop it up at my karaoke party on Wed cuz I don't think I'll be getting to Ding Dong Dang with y'all for a while, which is a shame, I liked that place!!

Curse you college children!

And that sounds fine... though getting there would be a problem as to get there on time I'd pretty much need to get on the train right after school... I'll see what I can figure out.

Well since it's going to be on a Friday you can probably just follow me home after school.
Though my parents might make me take the train again which means your mom would have to be cool with that [I can probably just use my mom's card to give you a free ride, we gave the Asian a free ride on Saturday so I don't care...]
Once I talk to my parents I'll inform you.
It's uber fun though so you're coming somehow...

Good idea, plus it'd be good to know about how much each person is paying ahead of time... though I will probably be buying a drink this time instead of being cheap and letting my throat dry again...
We should also encourage people to bring snacks [if we're not already]

I just went over the new rules and WOW they are strict, why do we all have to be sitting when someone is singing? Didnt we have fun with everyone dancing? It will be a bore like that.... Sure it can get out of hand if everyone was drunk or falling over but it wasnt like that last time.... oh-well just my opinion..

It got way too crowded at the front and everyone was basically blocking the door.

So Soy. how big is the biggest room? A lot of people seem to be wanting to attend this and I think you need to make a count...let's not forget people that aren't on the forums may come to this...-cough-mary-cough- So I think you need to get a running idea of how many people are coming. What happenens in the event (which is doubtful) that we have more people than the room fits? Sorry if it sounds like nagging but I was just wondering.

Well the biggest room is very large. Taller ceiling, more walk space, and the front is pretty wide. And couches wrapped around the sides of the room. It can fit probably 25-30 people. (Though we can go a little more) I'll get a head count, though I know it's going to be inaccurate like you said, people don't go on forums. I can try.

So then, who ever is official coming to the Karaoke Meetup on September 12th at 6pm. Please say so after this post.

It's worth a shot and like I said, I highly doubt that you will have more than the max amount of people.

I will give you a definite yes or no after my orientation because by Friday I will know my class schedule (though I'm trying to make sure I have no classes Friday...I dunno....It all depends on whats left and what has space)
