Geek Girls Turns TWO!

Our birthday is technically in August, but we are all so busy that month, we celebrate our birthday in September.

And boy, do we celebrate in high style! Stick your pinkies out for fancy cocktails and put on your swankiest duds because we are living it up! How often do you look at that sequined number in the back of the closet and think, "if I only had someplace to wear that!" Well honey, now you do!

I am almost positive we'll be at the US Grant's Grill, I am still waiting to hear back, but since it's a long weekend, I won't have confirmation until Tuesday. If our location changes, I will let everyone know ASAP.

This will be a ladies only event, since it is OUR birthday after all. I am working on something to get our fellas out and gussied up as well, but that will wait for another day. Come out for cake, cocktails, and camaraderie and a very merry (un)birthday to us all!

      It we great to meet you, Melody! Your pictures came out beautifully! Can't wait to get the whole lot of them in Lightroom to get them them to you! :) oh, and I realized a creative way of modifying the costume I want to make to work on a female form. I'll show you the drawings tomorrow!

    This was a wonderful event and all of you were so beautiful! I'm sorry I didn't mingle a lot, I have social anxiety when meeting new people and I was also somewhat intimidated. Maybe next time I won't be so awkward. (One can only hope.)

    • april

      Melissa, it was lovely to meet you! And like I said, we're all in the same boat; we're a gaggle of introverts. You can engage at your own level, so don't worry about being awkward or anything, we'll never judge you for that. If you still need driving practice, hit me up!

      I appreciate the love, all of you. <3

    For Comic Con, artist Steve Breen designed drink coasters for the Grant Grill Lounge. This was the second year and he drew US Grant as Spiderman. (Last year was #1 and I think it was Superman)
    I called the bar and they do still have a limited number available (free with your drink!)

      Oh sweet.

    PS The Grant was the site of the first Comic Con in 1970.

    Was waiting to hear more about the event before I rsvped, still not sure if it costs money :/ but my friends and I would like to go if not.

    • Shanna

      Sounds to me like there's no cover charge and everyone is buying her own drinks. Parking may cost you, but otherwise it could be as cheap as a soda from the bar. April, let me know if I've missed something.

      September 15, 2013

    • april

      Yep, Shanna, you're right. I did order some food for the group (sandwiches and a cheese board), so if anyone wants to throw in for that, I wouldn't mind. However I am not charging a cover and people can order what they'd like from the bar.

    Hi Ladies, I just wanted you to know that I'm going to bring my camera and tripod for this event so we can all have fun and get some fun glamour shots of all of us having fun in our beautiful, fancy dresses!

    If you have any fun "props" you want to bring along, that would be fun too!! Think boas, hats with fascinators, monocles, masks, silly large glasses, etc...

    We'll have fun with it! It's going to be a fun night!

    I'll post the final touched-up shots on meetup.com event page for you to download a couple weeks later (or sooner, if I can get to it!)

    See you tomorrow night!

    1 · September 15, 2013

    • Kathryn

      Clearly I am excited about this...I said "fun" SEVEN times, lololol. Yay for editing!

      I feel the same way. It WILL be fun! :D

      1 · September 16, 2013

    This is going to be my first meeting with Geek Girls and I'm so excited! I have a new amazing dress that I can't wait to wear it! <3

    September 14, 2013

    • april

      Oooh, yay! Any excuse for a new dress, right?

      1 · September 14, 2013

    • Melissa

      Yup! Good thing too.

    I don't get off work until 6, is it ok if I show up at 7?

    September 13, 2013

    • april

      Of course! We have the place booked until 10 or so.

      September 14, 2013

  • Emma

    I'll be a bit late since I get off work at 7, but I'll see you ladies there.

    September 14, 2013

  • anna b.

    They do have really comfy seating toward the back of the lounge area. or if our group gets big enough we can always sit in the lobby. It is allowed.

    Hi ladies! Can't wait. Did you know that it's SD Restaurant Week, next week? The Grant is doing a special 3 course menu. Check it out here. http://littleleopardbook.com/2013/09/12/grant-grill-san-diego/

      Thank you for clarifying about the no seating. That does make a difference! Even for choice of footwear. Lol :)

      September 13, 2013

    • april

      There will be some seats, but not dinner tables. It's very lounge swank. But yes, footwear is always a consideration.

      September 13, 2013

  • april

    Hi all! I will have some sandwiches for us, it will be just a nosh and you are encouraged to order apps and drinks from the menu. Thanks and see you soon!

    Is this a 21+ event due to the location? Or 18+? I can't remember if it is mostly a bar or restaurant.

    September 12, 2013

    • april

      I bet we could get the 18+ in, because it is mostly a restaurant.

    Hey April - is there a cut off on number of people or date to rsvp? I'm going out of town this weekend, so I won't know until Monday morning...

    September 12, 2013

    • april

      Nope, we'll probably get some last minute cancels anyway, so RSVP up until go time.

      September 12, 2013

  • anna b.

    I love The Grant!!! I'll see you there!

    September 12, 2013

  • Emma

    What if we have never thought to ourselves 'If only I had someplace to wear that' and possess no swanky duds? And have not the money/inclination to acquire said duds?

    September 10, 2013

    • Emma

      Haha, wow, thanks!

    Does anyone know of any cheap/free parking nearby?

    September 7, 2013

    • april

      Street parking is free after 6, and is usually abundant around A/Union or over by the courthouse.

    Sorry ladies I had to backout. Something came up work related. Bummed... :(

    September 10, 2013

    Sorry, but something has come up for that evening, so I can't make it. :( Please have an awesome drink for me!

    September 7, 2013

    • april

      :( I am so sad! We'll see you at something soon, I hope!

      1 · September 9, 2013

  • Melissa

    Meagan and I will be carpooling together! <3

    September 8, 2013

  • april

    Ladies, the reservation has been made, so we're definitely on. However, they do request that we run as few tabs as possible, so if you bring cash, we can settle the bill that way with one "Geek Girls" tab. If we have to run multiple cards, that's okay, but I'd like to get it less than a 1:1 people:card ratio. Thanks!

    1 · September 7, 2013

    • april

      I get that. They also have tasty food and N/A drinks!

      September 7, 2013

    • Kathryn

      I'll most likely eat beforehand. Or bring cash and not have a tab for the one drink I'll order.

      September 7, 2013

  • april

    It'll be a Kate Parade at 7p!

    1 · September 7, 2013

    I will also probably be sauntering in around 7 :P

      Me too! Yay for excuses for dressing up!!

      September 4, 2013

    • Kathryn

      It's a shame that we only get to wear these dresses once or twice! we should get to wear them more often!

    Will there be prizes again this year?
