**RSVP's closed. Unless you've made prior arrangements, cancellations and no-shows will be marked as a no-show. Still want to join us? Come the after party, just know that you may be in the same bar, but in an adjoining room. Please, give us privacy in the back room until 10pm as well, we'll need it to finish the game.**
By Request - a murder mystery party where there are more female characters than males, so that the gents (or ladies!) can come in drag! (there are male characters too) Please note that ONLY the female characters in this specific murder mystery are mandatory.
Don't want to dress in drag, want to check everyone else out in costume, or want to continue socializing until the wee hours? Sign up for the "after party"!
Brief details: we're back in the back room at Yaggers' again, this time on a Friday night! In order to host on a weekend evening, I've had to assure the manager that we'll all keep the alcohol and/or drinks coming all evening - so please keep this in mind when signing up. There's also some yummy food available; feel free to purchase a meal when you arrive.
There's pay parking just across the street, and Granville Skytrain is just a few blocks away. If you want to carpool, post in the comments! Yaggers ONLY takes Cash and Credit.
We start promptly at 6:45pm, and about 85% of folks show up in some costume or another. The winning costumes BTW are usually something the person made on the cheap at home... so no need to break the bank! RSVPs however are mandatory here, and I'll need confirmation from everyone I've yet to meet just prior to the event. No shows ruin the fun for everyone, so please only say you're coming if you can guarantee your attendance. Want to bring a friend? Have them sign up with Meetup and RSVP on their own - it makes it easier for me.
Other small details: this is a FANTASTIC way to meet new people, especially if you struggle to start conversations or feel intimidated in large groups. I'm happy to meet anyone prior to the event if need be to increase your comfort level. It's a small space and can get really loud very fast, so if you've got claustrophobia or are really sensitive to sound, this might not be the best event to attend. Only folks who have a character assigned are allowed to come (but all are welcome at the after party!) Need a specific costume piece? Post in the comments and someone will likely have something you can use. There are prizes for best costume, best drama queen, and for whomever guesses the murderer.
This event does cost me money, however I only want folks who can afford to pitch in to help. If you can, $5 (or whatever you feel is appropriate) is more than welcome, however far from necessary.
Please pick your character from below, write in the comments which one you'd like, and email me at [masked] for a character sheet. Thanks!
