Koreatown-Style Karaoke and BYOB Houseparty 5.0 (boardgames too..)

  • Jun 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Sam's place

The +10 (or whatever) next to my name shows how many guests have signed up from other meetups so that the total amount of guests reflects how many people are showing up.

Once upon a time I hosted a BYOB karaoke event in koreatown and it ended up costing us close to $400. They charged $7 per person PER HOUR in addition to byob. So I said SCREW THAT, and I started these events at my place.

It will cost $5, period (to cover drink mixers). PLEASE HAVE THE $5 READY AT THE DOOR. 


This will be legit koreatown-style karaoke! NOT a bunch of youtube videos! It will be complete with 2 wireless microphones, 12000 song collection, guided lyrics, a soundboard, reverb and a 5.1 surround sound system, just like karaoke in koreatown! 


This is STILL A BYOB EVENT. If you want alcohol you must bring it! But don't worry about mixers because I will already have some (this is what your $5 pays for), if you have any strange requests for mixers or sodas please email me through meetup.
The karaoke will start around 7:00PM or 8:00PM, so if you're coming for karaoke I would arrive a little late. If you're in it for the board games I'd arrive early. How to get into my place:
Please buzz #2 at the buzzer. I'm in apt #102 on the 1st floor. 


food:
click here for restaurants in the area

Parking:
DO NOT PARK ON THE STREETS, you will be ticketed! The only exceptions are these locations:
click here for the parking map Green: No time limit. (Park here if arriving before 6).
Pink: 2 hour parking till 8, then unlimited parking afterwards. (Park here if arriving at or after 6).
Purple: Free after 8PM, $1 per hour till 8:00. (Park here if arriving after 8, or if you want to arrive before 8 and pay to park closer).
The above is only a guide. MAKE SURE THE SIGNS DON'T SAY SOMETHING like "permit #32 exempted", if it does you will be ticketed. Stuff like "street cleanup" still applies!

Contact:
Call or text me at[masked] for updates. But please don't ask me about parking, as you can see from the map it's fairly complicated and it's impossible to explain while I'm hosting events.

    Despite the high amount of ppl who didn't show, I had a great time. The quality of people was more important than the quantity of people. Thanks Sam for opening up your home to me and everyone else who showed up.

    I opened the wait list, i had to set the meetup in the future to be able to edit it, then it wouldn't let me set it back to the original time since its in the past. Meetup is broken.

    Lol at first glance I thought Sam the host cancelled. Woo! Thank goodness. I'll have a name tag on since my pic isn't up.

    It states that the $5 covers drink mixers but not drinks. This makes no sense unless there will also be alcohol. What if a person doesn't buy alcohol for the mixers? That means they'll be paying $5 to sip on mixers all night.

      Okay Sam. I gotcha.

      June 7, 2014

    • Introvert_7

      I already have the $5. I just wanted to clarify a few things.

    Have to work last minute but I will definitely be there after, around 8ish :)

    For anyone wanting to join, I've enabled a waitlist. You might want to keep your eyes on the event at around 7:00PM as this is when I'll open it if there is enough room to accept more people.

      Hi Sam - i'm really interested to find out what type of karaoke setup you have. Any info you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

      It's just a PC hooked up to wireless microphones (2 of them), that are passed through some reverb hardware. The software displays the songs and lyrics on my TV though HDMI. Songs (and the song waitlist) are selected via the Karaoke Software on a 2nd PC monitor that I have off to the side of the TV.

    • Sam

      Yes you could always meet people at karaoke then do 6flags, but unfortunately I'm hosting a boardgames and game of thrones meetup on sunday so I wouldn't be able to go.
