We're meeting inside Qdoba for now but because of our new (and amazing!!) growth we've gotten a little too big for the restaurant. I'm putting an attendance cap on the meetups just for the few remaining winter months to keep our crowd at Qdoba manageable. If you do not RSVP before the attendance cap is met you can join us at 8pm(ish) for ice cream at Ben and Jerry's because Britney is awesome and she doesn't care how many people are there. I just want to avoid filling the entirety of Qdoba again. When warm weather returns and we are outside I will remove the cap.
This is just a general meet and greet. Come meet new members, hang out with old members, talk about anime/manga/video games/movies/cons/cosplay/whatever, make future plans for cosplay/cons/meetups, and generally make merry! This is a very casual get-together, just relax, talk, and have fun! Expect a lot of general conversation, talk of conventions, and merry making. If you've got an anime you want to discuss feel free to bring it up! If you need advice on cosplay/props ask around! If you have an idea for a fun meetup or viewing let us know!
If you have a cool idea for a meetup or want to discuss cosplay/convention plans as a group please do not be afraid to speak up! Sloop is in charge of these meetups, if you have trouble finding him ask around or flail your arms and shout his name - he'll find you!
When you are at Ben and Jerry's PLEASE 1) Don't crowd the counter if you're not in line. We've scared a handful of people out of that shop by mistake because they thought there was a 20 person line! OOPS. 2) Act appropriately around other customers. Some people hate crowds and we can't help them! But, especially if there are little ones around, try to watch your language and lewd gestures! They'll learn all that eventually, but let's try to make sure it's not from us!
Also, always remember to put the tables back! We generally assimilate about 5 or 6 tables so we can all sit, at the end of the night please remember to put them back where you found them.
Thank you! :)
