So I figured that it'd be nice to have a meetup just for us shy people here on the forums. I originally wanted to do this during acen but now that's over XD We'd eat, talk, and meet new people.

Date; June 4th
Time; 12pm-4pm
Location; Mitsuwa Marketplace [100 E. Algonquin Road, Arlington Hts., IL 60005]
Note; We'll be eating there so bring some money. :] Also bring some money if you want to shop there as well. If you think you'll get lost, pm me and I'll give you my number. We'll be meeting outside by the left entrance. Where it's grassy and has trees. If it rains, we'll be meeting inside where the video store is as it's a low traffic area~

Let's break out of our shells!
Anyone else up for it?

You know I'm for sure. I like Mitsuwa! But I would also like to cosplay at a picnic site!

Well I definitely fall under the shy people category. XD

I might go to something like this. Where would it be if it's a picnic?

Going to Mitsuwa is always a good idea! I hope this meetup works out for you. Shy people might be too shy to show up... ^_^

I would totally be up for a trip to Mitsuwa, because I haven't been there in almost a year. Hopefully I'm not working whenever this happens

@relik - what meetups are going on? D: if that's so then it'll either be on the 4th or the 18th

@thtr - if it were a picnic it'd be at busse woods or a park :) thatd be decided this weekend

@scott - yeah i hope people aren't too shy to show up XDDD that'd defeat the purpose lol

Since a lot of people say Mitsuwa, i'll wait until a bit more people respond XDD but so far it's looking more like a Mitsuwa meetup. Remember that Mitsuwa is a noooo cosplay zone~

Yay for meet & greets! After ACen, these seem quite tempting.

i am a shy person too ^^;; *hides in corner and is quiet* yeah i also heard mitsuwa is a no cosplay zone but i have seen people get away with being in some semi-cosplay outfits. i asked the liquor store owner there and he told me it had something to do with security and having the paperwork done for cosplay to be acceptable there. I mean i personally don't think it would be an issue. Isn't imitation the biggest form of flattery? if anything it should just be something that promotes how awesome Japan's culture is. Apparently they seem to think its offensive or something...

I guess no cosplay zone is a bit harsh XD but it's looked down upon. I've heard stories where cosplayers were kicked out (but then again they could've been rowdy and it could've also been an exaggeration) My brother worked there and said cosplay is fine but I just don't want to piss off anyone. XDD casual cosplay may be fine but nothing toooo crazy.

Is everyone ok with this meetup being on the 4th? If that's too early then please tell me :)

i think the only time cosplay might not be a problem is when they have their "yearly bon odori festival"

^ might not be? Or do you mean "might be a problem" thats the one day cosplay is very very much looked down upon. D: We've had arguments about it on the acen forums last year.

Like I said, casual might be fine if you want to cosplay. Big, extravagant might be a stretch. Mitsuwa is crowded on Saturdays anyway so it'd be hard to move around if you're extremely dressed up

That's fine with me. I'm pretty much fine with any of these Saturdays as long as it's finalized enough in advance. My only issue will be getting there... :unsure:

Lolita's not a cosplay though it's a fashion style~ I'm sure the girls you saw were from the chicago lolita community and weren't meant to be thought of as cosplay :]

Edit;; just going to make it the 4th as it's less of a hassle :] hope this doesn't cause any problems. Spread it around and let's have a big meetup! Will edit the first post when i get home.

The title of this thread made me think back to the Shy Otaku Society here on the forums. I wonder if that is still considered to be in existence, or if it just faded away. Anyway, good luck starting up a new version of this, if that is your intent :)! I don't plan on going back up to Chicago until July (or August at the latest).

^ Yep I had that in mind when I was making this meetup. I remember the Shy Otaku Society a long time ago and they had meetups too. It was so nice and I'm sad that I no longer see it around anymore. ;AA;

Ok guys the first post is updated with info for this meetup :] I will probably be wearing my Dreamcast hat so that should help you find the group. I'll be getting there a bit earlier to make sure~ I can't wait! Ohhh my delicious katsudon~~~~ How I want to eat youuu~

I totally wish Otafuku was there still instead of Gabutto burger. That was the only place I ate at over there. Fried noodles AND curry in the same place?? WIN

I've been asked to go and even invited but just never had the time or funds to. It's not far from the sounds of it. I've never been to Chinatown either.

Gabutto Burger IS tasty, though my go-to is still the katsudon from Kayaba :drool:

...let's go right now


Also, I'm not sure if the creator of this thread mentioned it already (apologies if she did), but there's going to be a Japanese Gourmet Food Fair going on btwn 6/2 - 6/5-- YUSSSSS!

This is going to be an awesome meetup.

^ righhht XD I hate that feeling. When you think of something really tasty and that craving hits you hard. Especially if you haven't had it in a while. Damn food being so good.
