Bronies Raid The NEW "City Target" In SF

Target is open in the city. Therefore, bronies must bless it's location with our presence.

The current plan is to first meet up on the Yerba Buena Gardens side of the Metreon building. Right above the Sanraku Japanese restaurant is an open balcony. We shall meet here.

Here, take this terribly dark last minute photo I took on the way home

After gathering everypony up at the balcony, we head on in. If you must, here's a map of what used to be the old PlayStation Store and 2nd floor arcade. i mean, The new City Target http://tgtfiles.target.com/maps/2766.png?ref=tgt_adv_qr_ism_t2766_map

From there, we have the option to go other places, like Jeffrey's Toys, GameStop, the San Francisco Centre, watch a movie, go to Uniqlo, go to one of the museums but stick around the gift shop instead because we don't want to pay to get in, raid each and every nearby Walgreens, etc.

See you there!

    Fun times, as always! Didn't actually get to the meetup on time to raid Target because of school, but still had loads of fun afterwards!

    Had an awesome time today, it was just plain fun! Thank you everypony for showing up!

    Uploaded the pictures, and sent a short write up for the meetup to EQD with the pictures of us as Zombies and Damon with the box on his head for the title picture. Let's see what they choose ;)

    Hey all! I checked out the store today. The floor plan is a little strange since the electronics section just sort of ends in a cul-de-sac and despite the initial claims that it'd be a higher-end Target I didn't actually see anything that was different from any other Target. It was really busy, but it wasn't so bad that there was a line out the door or anything, just crowded inside. There's a small pony section; I saw a few wedding sets and a single Trixie. Hopefully they'll restock by Friday. The Cako Creamery ice cram shop has build-your-own ice cream cupcakes now! See you all there on Friday. Is there an exact meeting spot yet?

      See, this is why I'm even less sure that I want to go.

      But Seth lives in Arizona! (Yes, I know you're joking.)

    I'm working, so I can't make it. However, if anypony would like to bless a used bookstore with their presence...

    Updated meet info with details on how the event should pan out.

    October 18, 2012

    • Jordan O.

      Why are you being so negative, Josh?

      October 18, 2012

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    Well I'll be arriving late around 4-5:30PM since because of school. But U can make it to the meetup if it can last long enough.

    As for the initial meetup point before we go into the store, I was thinking of maybe the little balcony over the sushi restaurant at Metreon right where Yerba Buena Gardens is. Over there you can actually see inside Target, specifically the toys section.
    Once you're on the other side of Metreon, opposite of 4th street and right where the park is, you should be able see it; There's some tables & chairs w/ umbrellas right above the sushi place.

    October 15, 2012

    • Ohad K.

      That sounds like an awesome idea, though I'm not a big fan of Sushi..

      October 15, 2012

    • Nymo

      Me neither, and the location has nothing to do with it: It's just an empty balcony that anyone can go over and sit at.

      October 15, 2012

  • Jordan O.

    I *might* go to this. Transportation costs and time are the biggest factors.

    October 13, 2012

    • Richard T.

      Are you able to ride the BART there? The Powell station is like a block or two away. That's the way I'm going. Real cheap, lot cheaper than paying the toll since I don't live on the island.

      October 14, 2012

    • Jordan O.

      Danville > Walnut Creek BART > Powell St. Sure, I could, but that's about $10 round trip. I'll think about it.

      October 14, 2012

  • Sean N.

    The new date and time actually works out perfectly for me, and this sounds like a blast, you can count me in!

    October 11, 2012

  • Nymo

    I just realized that I have a class that ends right at 2 PM, so I decided to move it a bit so I have time to head back over here.

    Also, spoilers: They don't have new pony stuff when I checked yesterday, but for those who still want to get existing toys, they are pretty well stocked...

    For those who have RSVP'd: Again, I ask when would be a good time to go for you? Sunday, the day of it's grand opening, is toooooo close to the marathon and I don't know if we'll have the energy to go.

    October 3, 2012

    • Bryan M.

      I vote for having it on the 19th (Friday), like we had planned before.

      October 3, 2012

  • Nymo

    Having looked at the schedule, I just realized one major flaw: This event is right after, if not during, the mare-a-thon at Ex'presison. Who's willing to go on a weekday? Otherwise, is the Friday or next Sat/Sun after it's opening?

    September 28, 2012

    • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

      I'm fine with either... I'll have to crash once i get home and take a long nap but My body will be ready !

      October 2, 2012

  • Damon Y.

    My body is ready

    October 2, 2012

  • Nymo changed the date and time from Friday, October 19, 2012 at 4:00 PM to Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 11:00 AM

  • Nymo

    I decided to go shift it over to it's actual opening day just so we can have bronies in the store from day one. If we have many people against this move, I'll consider moving it back...

    September 25, 2012

  • Nymo

    OK, I miscalculated: The actual opening date is SUNDAY, October 14th. So, who's willing to ACTUALLY go to the store on it's opening day & witness the chaos that ensues?

      A discord fan, probably. count me in as maybe

      September 22, 2012

    • Nymo

      Not sure how much late we would be able to go if we go on Sunday: There isn't much else to do in the area & most close early anyways. Going to move it over for now...
