LOL First Anniversary Party!!!

Has it already been a whole year???

The organizers would like to thank you all for being part of our wonderful group with a big bash at Alewife in LIC. We've come a long way! In a year full of fun events, you've all embraced the positive spirit of what this group means to us by coming out and being active members.

And if we haven't seen you yet, well now's as good a time as any! We won't hold it against you for being MIA :) lol. From jet skiing to dining adventures and everything in between, we've had a blast. The fun doesn't stop here, because we have a full calendar of events for the year ahead. We will be promoting our upcoming outings, even ones not on the page yet :). Ideas for events are also welcome and appreciated!

We've reserved a cozy, semi-private space on the 2nd floor with couches. If you came to our New Year's Eve party, you know what a fun place this is. Contact info will be emailed, but it should be easy to find us.

Alewife has a huge selection of beers, a full menu of great food, wine, and cocktails. Happy hour ends at 9pm, so come early. Feel free to bring games. More TBA.

Bring a friend or two. The more the merrier :).

    Thanks everyone for coming out to our events and for helping us celebrate our anniversary last night! It's been an awesome year and I've had a blast thanks to all of you. I've met a lot of kind, funny, enthusiastic, and fun-loving people here, and I just love the positive energy you all bring to our group. Looking forward to another year ^_^!

      Couldn't have said it better Ro! I sincerely thank you for all you do for this group. It doesn't go unnoticed by me or the members. :o)

    Had a fantastic time. Thanks for organizing, Eddie, Ro, George & Sabrina! What a great space - and a great group of people. I only regret that I didn't have the energy to close out the night with you all!

    Over a year ago we started down a road not asking where will this take me? We knew. We didn't know where we were going, but we never questioned what we would find. We knew. Something very special. A treasure. And we found it … ALL of you! All of those that could make it, and all those that couldn't. Every single person that comes in our lives is a blessing. We may like them, we may not. We may become friends or never see them again. But there's an intrinsic beauty in all connections we make with other human beings, no matter how brief. We are all fortunate to have this group. You all make it possible. You all sustain it. Thank you! Looking forward to all the times to come. *feeling awe and gratitude*

      Omg, this is gonna be a long conversation one day, isn't it?? Lol. Seriously though Kavita, you inspire me. You are largely responsible for me becoming who I am today (remember that one question you asked me some years ago?). :o)

      So is you joining us last night Dave. Thanks so much. I hope someone got a pic of you napping on the couch. :o) It's akin to what we call a disco nap in the group - a term brought to us by our very own professional disco napper and chair dancer, Kenrick! :o)

      Haha that was embarrassing. Thanks for the kind words!

    This was such a fun time, we should go to Alewife at least once a year :) Good to see everyone. I should remember to eat next time before I drink so much.

      Agreed Wesley, at least once a year! I'll bring you food next time so you don't have to remember. Great seeing you again last night. :o)

  • Eddie C

    Thanks to all who came out last night! This is such a fun-loving group because you all bring a great energy and warmth to every event you attend. We would not have come this far without you and truly appreciate your enthusiasm. Special thanks to Ro and Sabrina, who have carried us the last few months and all year round. And to our co-founder George, without whom none of us would be here:)

      Well said Eddie. But in line with your ever present modesty and humility (which awes me every single day), there was no mention of what you do so quietly. Thank you too. There are lots of people who we have to thank for the sustaining of our fantastic group, and you are no small part in that. :o)

      Clicked Post too early. Also wanted to tell everyone to have a great time, and thank you Ro, and everyone else for your hard work in coordinating and organizing such fun events! See you all soon!

      2 · April 26, 2014

  • Ro

    Btw everybody, don't plan on getting there too early (before 8pm). The venue has a private party taking place btw 6 to 8pm so you may not be able to get in to Alewife before 8. The reservationist also said everyone in our party will be getting wristbands.

    2 · April 25, 2014

    • Ro

      Lol George. "Tie me to the bedpost" :P? Rahul, there's a private event going on from 6 to 8 where there's a $50 entrance fee I believe, and the venue will be open to the general public starting at 8pm.

      April 26, 2014

    • Rahul

      Thanks for confusion george and thanks for making it clear Ro

      I hope you make it out, Bushra! :-) We'll be here late til 2am when they kick us out. If not, we hope to see you soon!

    Looking forward. Anyone have particular recommendations for parking?

    2 · April 26, 2014

    • A former member
      A former member

      The best recommendation I can give you if you're worried about parking is take the 7 train!!! ;o) Seriously, sometimes you get lucky and can find parking around there easily. At other times it's not always that easy and you end up circling for a while. Wesley and I got really lucky New Year's Eve and found parking within a couple of blocks down the same street. If you don't find parking around the venue, you can also try around the side streets of 47th/48th Ave and Vernon Blvd.

    Ro, I can make a celebrity guest appearance but you would have to dish out 10 million. I'm sure you have that in your piggy bank. :-P

    We had to change our party time from 6pm to 8pm which is still pretty early for a Saturday. I hope this doesn't affect anyone's plans. Also, the events coordinator agreed to give our group an extended happy hour until 9pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone there :)!
