Watch the Oscars!

UPDATE: Super stoked for our Oscar-watching event today! I wanted to let you all know that cars must be parked on the STREET (if you try to park in the parking lot, you might get towed, it is all reserved parking) you can park anywhere along Maya Linda Rd, generally there is plenty of space but call me if you run into trouble and I'll help you out :)

My contact number in case anyone gets lost:[masked]

 

Hey All!

So I will host the Academy Awards-watching event at my place. I have a fairly large flat-screen television, so everyone should be able to get a nice view :)

The awards show begins at 4 pm, I'll have my place open and ready for guests starting at 3 so we can arrange seating and chat for awhile before the show begins. This party is co-ed, I'll be inviting both guys and girls from other groups I belong to, so if you have a significant other or guy pals you would like to bring, feel free.

This is a potluck-style event, everyone must contribute something, whether it be food, drinks, or napkins/plates/cups. I may just whip out my chocolate fondue set for this event, so be prepared for chocolatey-dipped goodness!

    Hi Jen, just wanted to confirm the number of guests so I can print out the right number of bingo cards. Thanks!

      It looks like 12 of us are attending, Sandra :D

      Sandra, there will be around 25 guests, by my estimate. Some of these are "maybes", so there may be fewer, but go ahead and print out 25 just in case :)

    I am planning on wearing my "Oscar gown"! Does anyone else do that? and thought I should let you know I am bringing Mary Todd Lincoln Almond Cupcakes and Lincoln White House Champagne Punch.
    Love the games!

    We cut the cord on our cable and Awards season is always the worst. I'm so glad to be watching it with some like-minded folks. Jen--I would like to volunteer to run the predictions contest. I can bring all the supplies.

    Sorry everyone, I had to make the cut at 12 Yes RSVPS because my place simply isn't big enough for large groups (I have about 8 additional RSVPs from other groups, so that pretty much puts me at capacity). I am thrilled that this event has generated so much interest, though, I will try to make this an annual thing ;)

      Jen, you're fantastic! I would love to have it at my place, but it's small, and filled with my two-year-old's toys. I'd be more than happy to help you out in whatever way I can! :)
