Scrabble Party & Karaoke (Event Updated)

UPDATES:

1. Location\Time Changed. Rather than a pub crawl we are just doing one bar and also will enjoy some karaoke too that starts at 9pm.

2. Please reserve your letters via the comments below (three separate posts) as we don't have as many people, it's best to reserve letters by replying to a comment. It's okay if you show up with a letter without reserving though.

Who's up for a fun & unique night out!?

Join us for a Scrabble Party where everyone wears a shirt with a letter on it and we spell words & take pictures for fun all evening.

This event is inspired by a fantastic pub crawl I attended with a Meetup group in Denver back in May. So see photos here on how to make a shirt:

WHERE: Velvet Lounge (secondary room in north end of bar)

WHEN: Starting at 8:00pm

DETAILS: So I decided to change it from a pub crawl to just a party. It will be a smaller event so we'll have karaoke too.

You can also signup for our Facebook event and shared with friends:

HOW TO MAKE A SHIRT TO PARTICIPATE

The easiest thing to do is get a white t-shirt and write a letter on it with a marker but you can see all the different options used by people looking at the photos via the link below. Anything creative to have a letter on your shirt is fine. You can also just bring a white shirt and use a marker at the event to write a letter on when you arrive.

Additionally, people can bring markers to the event to write favorite words they spell throughout the night. There are no prizes other than bragging rights as this is just for fun.


HOW TO FIND US

Look for the people with letters on their shirt! Please note that there are two sections to the bar: the main Gypsy Restaurant & Velvet Lounge. We are in the Velvet Lounge which is to the North and is their secondary room.

    Reserve Letters Post #2 (Vowels). Since we have a smaller turnout, we'll have to try to reserve letters to avoid duplication.

    Please have at least one person select one of every vowel. We probably need 2 of each vowel though. Except maybe only one U.

    A,E,I, O & U

    Reserve Common Letters Post #3 (Common Letters). It's okay to duplicate but if you are picking a common letter post here. We definitely need a LSTNRD.

  • Kate

    Hey guys! Are we going to plan out our letters beforehand or what?

    1 · September 12, 2013

    • Jason K.

      A lot of people who signup don't show up for various reasons. With 34 RSVPs around 20 people would probably attend. I was hoping to get 60+ RSVPs.

      We could still try it. I am moving it to Gypsy so we're skipping the bar crawl part and just doing it there.

      I created three posts to claim a letter. Event is on. I just changed it to just one location and added Karaoke to the event too.

      September 13, 2013

    • Jason K.

      OK. It's on. A little short notice for picking letters but hopefully most people will come out. We'll just be in one bar instead of bar hopping though.
