MLP Season 4 Premier Watch Party

Let's get together for the launch of Season 4 and WATCH SOME PONIES!

We'll meet at mindartcore Pilates Performance in Lincoln Square, share some snacks and chat, then watch a couple Season 3 episodes followed by the long-awaited 2 episode premiere of SEASON 4!

I plan to provide vegan snacks as well as PIZZA (vegan and not) because everyone likes that.  As always, feel free to bring a contribution to the snacking pool!  PLEASE BRING $5 for the rental space and food.

I will be bringing some cider, beer, and other stuff.  If parents are concerned, the organizer's numbers are [masked] for Dan and (847)[masked] for Joe, we can assure them that no minors will be served alcohol to.

Not sure how parking is, so please, TALK TO the group, see if you can carpool, offer to carpool, if you need a ride, ASK if someone is willing.  (It's fun because it gets the party started early)

The place is equal distance (3 blocks) from the Damen Brown line and the Ravenswood Metra.

The rental will be until 10pm.  Every(one) is welcome back to my place (2043 W Fargo) afterwards to continue the party.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there!

- Dan & Joe

    Well, it was definitely nice to meet other people to talk a little about MLP, and experience Season 4 with others of the same mind.

    Btw, I completed a PMV/trailer mash-up a few hours ago, and thought I'd show it here. I call it: Equestrianception: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdcBqIomJdQ

    I want to say thank you to all who showed up last night! It was so awesome seeing so many new faces and many familiar ones too! I hope that I did, at least, a decent job for my first ever time as an organizer! If there's anything you would like me to improve on or if you think what i'm doin is fine or whatever, email me with your comments. I encourage feedback!

    Now that was fun, I loved seeing more of the group as well as some people from the last meetup, the show is still good, regardless of wings, and all in all I can't wait to attend another soon.

    November 24, 2013

  • CF

    November 23, 2013

    • Matt

      You'll probably be fine. Haven't even started previous season episodes yet

      November 23, 2013

    • Alex s.

      November 23, 2013

  • robert j.

    Wait about 20 min before starting the show. Me and my friend had to get stuff from our car and we parked pretty far way.

    November 23, 2013

    • Matthew D.

      Same here, I have plenty of soda to share

      November 23, 2013

  • robert j.

    Alright were here but its closed.

    November 23, 2013

  • Matt

    Anyone bringing soda? I could stop and pick up a few cases if needed.

    November 23, 2013

    • Matthew D.

      I got it, how much should I bring?

      November 23, 2013

  • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

    Ok My Little Bronies! I need you guys to go into double time and help find a 720p copy of episodes 1 & 2.

      November 22, 2013

    • CF

      I wish you were closer. Sorry but I am way out in the north west subs. I still hope you can make it.

      November 23, 2013

  • Jason

    Man, I hope there is sufficient parking...

    November 22, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      itll be street parking. if you can find a parking lot send me or dan a txt.

      November 22, 2013

    • CF

      Google the location and zoom in the map. There is a parking lot to the north that looks like it belongs to a school. I don't think they will tow our cars from there

      November 23, 2013

  • Dan

    votes for pizza toppings?

    November 22, 2013

    • Dan

      1 cheeseless with peppers, spinach, mushrooms, 1 cheese, 1 cheese with peppers, mushroom, onion, 1 pepperoni, 1 sausage. cool? PS I'm all for another vegan one, but I'm keeping the budget at 5 larges. Lemme know if we have a majority of vegetarians.

      November 23, 2013

    • CF

      I am an omnivore and when necessary cannibal. we can always order more. I will bring some extra cash.

      November 23, 2013

  • Thomas P.

    Heres a question will anyone be at furfest this saturday? If so would it be a problume to get a ride to the event

    November 22, 2013

    • Dan

      November 23, 2013

  • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

    We need someone that can torrent Ep 1&2 for the meetup.

    November 15, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      but if multiple people download them then we shouldnt have any problem

      November 22, 2013

    • Matt

      I'll make sure to bring a copy just in case

      November 22, 2013

  • robert j.

    The friend I'm bringing with wants to know if its okay if he brings beer.

    November 22, 2013

  • Matthew D.

    I could probably give people rides. I'll be coming from Carol Stream by car

    November 20, 2013

    • Thomas P.

      Well I'm on the south side of Chicago would that be doable

      November 22, 2013

  • Sam P.

    Man...Talk about bad luck on my part! Sorry, but I can't attend because me and my folks will be downtown for the light parade. :(

    November 22, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      its ok sam. we hope to see you at the next meetup.

      November 22, 2013

  • Matt

    Thought I'd throw this in as a regular posting instead of as a comment on another post.
    I'll be glad to give a ride to anyone who needs it if you're north of downtown and east of the river.

    November 21, 2013

  • Dan

    a quick note I neglected, my place will have 2 dogs and 2 roommates at it that evening, so if you plan to stick around and join me there for the after party, now you have been advised.

    1 · November 21, 2013

  • MrMysticFist

    I'll be driving for sure from 60525 or 60162, and that's a whole lot of I-290 and 90/94 if need be. Anypony is welcome for a free ride, even if it's a bit out of the way, as it seems the North is covered. Map it and I'm fine with other roads. Station wagon, so lots of seating to offer, even seating for chairs! ...If you have extra chairs for the event, that is, but I confess, that sounded Pinkie-posessed.
    Click my profile and PM me for contact info.

    2 · November 21, 2013

  • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

    Ok. Big update! Current location, 4945 North Damen Avenue, Chicago, IL, has be confirmed! We have a projector and speakers. We do need 20 chairs is someone can help with that.

    2 · November 20, 2013

    • Dan

      It's the full studio, so we have the reception/entrance space, the actual practice area, and a back portion. Everywhere but the reception area you will have to have your shoes off. You may want to bring slippers or thick socks. I have 8 chairs, the place has 10, we need at least 10.

      November 20, 2013

    • Dan

      make that 15 chairs

      November 20, 2013

  • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

    lets make it an even 15 just in case last min RSVPs show up.

    November 20, 2013

  • Driden S.

    I'm bringing Cupcakes! They will be main six cutie mark themed. I'll bring 5 of each them. But if you people reserve 8 pinkies and 3 rarities then ill do that. So reply which one of them you want. Ill try to make the ones you request but i need to carv them out of fondont so plz rsvp asap or deal with what i bring.

    4 · November 20, 2013

  • Jason

    So this place has a projector and speakers covered? Also im coming from Wilmette and could probably pick someone up.

    November 20, 2013

  • Matt

    I'd love to come, but I just joined the group and I haven't met any of you in person yet. Will that still be cool? Don't want to drop into a party without really having been part of the group for very long.

    November 18, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      its parking on the street. the only parking lot there is for the apartment complex.

      November 20, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      also, there are 2 bus stops near the meetup area. the closest one is damen and argyle if there are some of you taking the bus.

    I'm quite sure that's the purpose of this group, fluuuutershy. An exclusive brony group wouldn't be very Magical now would it, but yea there are new people at every meetup, the more the merrier ^_^

    1 · November 18, 2013

  • Alan R.

    I will be hosting my meetup group at Skokie library until 5:30. The earliest I could arrive would be 6:30 PM. Would that be too late?

    November 18, 2013

  • MrMysticFist

    Ug, that's why I'm here to dash. Car's going to be running ton all ta-tas. I'm effing there, wee ones. Unon and Ogilvie. Yeee - HAW!

    • Dan

      Dude, I have no idea what you said, but I like your enthusiasm.

      November 17, 2013

  • Dan

    I haven't heard anything from Caroline recently, so I'll be hosting instead. I don't have space restrictions, so come one come all. Although it will get crowded if we have more than 25.

    November 12, 2013

    • caroline

      I sent you a PM with info butI guess discord ate it or something? *shrugs* but its just as well that it got moved becuse my project just desided to go on the friz as of last night

      November 14, 2013

    • Dan

      Oh I see. Strange. But thank you for chiming in on the message board, good to hear from you.

      November 14, 2013

  • Matthew D.

    So, what is the address of the new location? I'm coming from Carol Stream and I'll be driving.

    November 14, 2013

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      we are currently looking at another backup location. Stay tuned for more updates and pay attention to the top of this page for the address.

      November 14, 2013

  • robert j.

    Can't wait for it. Also I might be bringing a friend of mine from the college.

    November 14, 2013

  • MrMysticFist

    How many will be taking public trans that hits Union or Ogilvie Stations, or are leaving from the western suburbs? Too early to put this plan 100% into effect (car fix this weekend, will update), yet I may even have a backup, so a mere 99% sure. Either vehicle, lots of seats.
    Would totally be willing to lend a ride from/near 60525 and/or swing by the stations if there are at least a couple to hop in the wagon. I see 1 looking at a heckuva commute, too few to go that far out of the way for, so if anypony is near me or wary of city travel, you still can join this herd.

    2 · November 14, 2013

  • caroline

    I am still up for having it here at my house ,
    I think it would be nice if others brought snacks but I can also supply some as well as cider (both normal and alcoholic)

    I will have to say no to dr. who though ( I dislike that show)

    the projector room is a bit small but I think i can fit 10-15 if I move some of my ponies and other toys out :P (that is if people are ok with sitting on cusions or bean bags)

    if you have a food allergy please post letting me now
    (and I do note I have pets but hair in the projector room is at a minimum only one cat comes in and the room is cleaned regularly)

    also my cats are shy so they probably wont bother anyone and the dog spends most of the day outside

    October 23, 2013

    • Jason

      So is what is listed now as location the backup location? Or a new one? I live in Wilmette gahh.

      November 13, 2013

    • Dan

      New location. It's 4 stops south on the Metra from Wilmette, not very difficult. In fact, if you take Green Bay Rd south, it will turn into Ridge, which is 1 block west of my place.

      November 13, 2013

  • Ezekiel

    I don't live in Chicago per se, but Woodstock so I am not sure how to get anywhere very easily, but I can get to the union station. Time to do some research.

    November 13, 2013

  • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

    I'll be showing up at least a couple hours early to help with setup. I'll be coming from Schaumburg so if anyone needs a ride that is near me send me a message through meetup.

    November 13, 2013

  • Dan

    I'd also ask that every(one) check their RSVP and confirm that they are still coming so I can plan accordingly with food and the like.

    November 12, 2013

  • Dan

    Yes, it should be Season 4. So let's actually get this done.

    The premiere is Saturday, Nov. 23.
    Set this date for the meetup?

    A location in Wilmette with a projector has been offered.
    Is this offer still open?
    Is this a private residence?
    Is there seating for 15?
    Any pets to be aware of?
    We all cool with this?
    If not, any other suggestions?

    This is a meetup for a long awaited event.
    Do we want a theme (or an excuse to cosplay)?
    Pony marathon leading up to the premiere?

    Usually we do a sort of snack potluck.
    Does anyone have dietary restrictions for consideration?

    Looking forward to getting this party started!

    • Joe "Lug Nut" M.

      We should even consider showing Dr. Who as well. A double season premier.

    Don't you guys mean Season 4?

    I for sure want to go! I just need to know where it is so I can get trains over there.

    When you get the place and time, I will be there! I will see if the my friend who brought me into the fandom would like to go too!

    Just need a date... gotta find time for it around my school and work schedule.

  • caroline

    If ypu guys don't mind coming out to wilmette I can host it I even have a large projection screen

    I live fairly close to the train and could even shuttle those who want to come via it

    • Jason

      Oh, very nice and convenient. I'm in Wilmette =)

      September 1, 2013

  • kyle

    I might come but it depends the cost but I most likely go

    August 21, 2013

  • Dan

    I'm in favor of the Wilmette proposal. It would be cool to watch the last couple episodes of Season 3 and then the Season 4 premiere

    August 18, 2013

  • caroline

    Oh and I have the season 1 and 2 dvds

    August 17, 2013

  • Gavin H.

    I am unsure if I am bringing a guest. But for now I might only go

    July 6, 2013

  • Joel G.

    The advertised rate was $250.00 an hour so we would need 25 people to make it $10 a person and we could watch two episodes. Now I would encourage somepony to get a hold of the owner/whomever and find out if it's still $250, What is it for additional hours?, does that include anything that we don't need?

    If this is too expensive, I could think of a really cool alternative that I've always wanted to do but we would have to wait until late spring, But I think it would be so cool to do an episode showing outside. We could organize it at a park and advertise it to other bronies that are not a member of this group. We should even try to contact the Midwestria Convention organizers for additional support and advertising. I think this would be the coolest thing to ever do in like May or June. We could call it a mini outdoor convention in the park. :)

    Could you imagine all the people driving by a park with a large projector screen(s) playing My Little Pony. That would be so cool. :) :)

    January 9, 2013

  • Zachary F.

    Depends on price

    January 3, 2013

  • Zachary F.

    I could probably make it, but I would really need to know the cost beforehand.
