July SF Japan Town Meet Up

I've chatted to a couple of people and we're hoping to do this Japan Town thing monthly. ;3
First we need a date everypony can attend. There is one date, July 27 or 28th, where there will be a J-POP summit festival. I don't mind going then BUT it will be crowded. When there's a festival at Japan Town, MAN does it get crowded!
And was the time fine? We did meet at 11:30AM but many didn't come until noon. Leave suggestions down below! ;3

      What? Huh, We've always had it like that so I thought it was right... OOPS. My mistake. :c

    • Michiko N.

      Wait a second, technically the original address put at the top was literally in Japan Town. If you went to that address, you should of seen the Japan Town Banners not too far away and Japan Town is literally right across the street. :\ So the address is wrong in a sense it's on the edge of Japan Town but it's right as in, it's in Japan Town.

  • SugarRush P.

    BART-ing my way in right now. May be a tad late since I'll be hoofing it from Civic Center to J-Town

    July 28, 2013

  • Ben G.

    Well I'm definitely down for J pop. As for the movies at the film festival they seem to be mostly anime. I was interested in wolf children alas it is sold out, but I don't mind seeing the naruto movie if other people want to see it.

    Hmmm, for those who want to see the premier films at this festival: it appears that only two of them still have tickets left, so if you really want to see either of them, you must buy now. http://jffsf.org/2013/schedule/

    As for the rest of the Festival, please go here: http://www.j-pop.com/2013/schedule/

  • SugarRush P.

    I'm already going to Saturday's meet-up, but I'm down for this as well. Hope to see everypony there! By the way are we meeting up at any specific shop?

    July 26, 2013

    • Michiko N.

      Usually we meet underneath the really large tower but it might be taken over... I'm not sure where we could meet. We could all meet at Cafe May.

  • Muffyn-Man

    If the event is going to be on the 28th then I'll definitely go. There doesn't seem to be too many Sunday events in our group for some reason.

    July 14, 2013

    • Michiko N.

      I guess we're Saturday people! But if others are up to the festival I'm all pumped.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
