Happy Valentine's Day!

Join us for a Valentine's Day Cosplay/Semi-Formal Potluck Ball.

Attire: Dress to the nines in your favorite cosplay, evening dress, or shirt and tails. Anything but t-shirt and jeans is acceptable.

Food: Guests are required to bring their favorite potluck dinner item to share with the group. There is no restriction on the food type, so feel free to bring Japanese or anything else. Also, a little goes a long way, so no need to worry about providing enough for everyone. If each person brings enough for 4 then there will be more than enough for everyone to eat.

Entertainment: There will be music for dancing and alcohol provided by the facility (cash purchase only), so make sure to bring your dancing shoes, ID, and money for drinks.

Cover Charge: There will be a small fee of $10.00 payable at the door to attend. I know everyone is bringing food, however, this small fee will cover the cost of the hall and incidentals like plates, napkins, utensils, and basic decorations.

All are Welcome: This is a great opportunity to meet new members of the group and/or socialize with existing members and friends. Guests are also welcome. Feel free to invite friends, boyfriends, random friends you meet on the T along the way... lol ok maybe not random strangers on the T or street, but just about everyone else is welcome.

I'm also going to look into inviting other similar type groups to make things more diverse and fun.

Location: Dilboy VFW Hall in Davis Square

    Yeah, I might need a little help getting my food into the hall. It took twice as long to prepare as the reipie said, and I am running late trying to finish it up. However, despite following the ingredients, it made twice as much as expected. So I hope people like eggplant -_-;;;;;

    Could I beseech someone to possibly bring an iPhone charger to loan me for the duration of the dance? I seem to have misplaced mine, and if it runs out of battery, we'll run out of tunes, and that simply will not fly. Thanks!

    • Wendy

      Idk??? Didn't know that was happening. No worries though. I'll see you when you get here! Thanks again! You are awesome!!

    So tonight is the big night. If you haven't RSVPed yet there is still time. If you forget to RSVP or you think it's too late, no worries! There will still be room for you to join. Just show up. What to bring: $10 cover charge, you're potluck item, cash for beverages at the bar, and yourself dressed in your cosplay or in semi formal attire (that's the most important part! It's not a party without you!!!) I look forward to seeing you all tonight!

  • Joseph A.

    So between the people who already talked to me about bringing cupcakes and Amarley bringing a cake, we should be all set with cake. If you haven't thought of what you're bringing for the potluck yet, maybe think about chips or cookies or a dinner type food. Thanks!!

    February 11, 2013

    • Wendy

      Hi Laura. You can if you would like, however it's not required. I know some people from the other meetups are bringing so Vegan dishes and deserts.

      February 12, 2013

    • Laura

      k was just planning on bringing mini cupcakes or cookies since they seem the easiest to transport on the subway =)

  • Joseph A.

    Quick question that came up earlier tonight: What's the parking situation down there?

    February 3, 2013

    • Laura

      lol Joseph just realized you beat me to this XD

    Davis square has lots of parking in the area. May have to drive around for a bit but there is plenty. I used to go to the j tree on Monday's and Thursday's after dodgeball. There are parking lots and side street parking. Plus the T is right up the street.

    February 3, 2013

  • Laura

    Does this location have private/off street parking?
