New Member Meetup EAST VALLEY

Native New Yorker Menu

Time for another newbie meet and greet!

We're always so excited to see new faces joining us, but I know it might be kinda hard to just jump on in (especially since we're all a bunch of shy guys and gals lol), so a simple lunch where we can hang out and chat is just what is needed!

Our last new member meetup was so successful! A little too successful.. We were cramped, I mean cozy, and got very, um, friendly with each other :) So I thought we should try splitting it up! I know I complain about the drive from Gilbert (yes, I know, so far away!) so I'll be hosting this one for you East Valley folks while Chad is hosting this same event in Central Phoenix.

We will be having these events at the same time! I know, such madness. But we will also be having another event later in the day/evening where we can all hang out after and continue this meet and greet! Exciting times, I know.

Just a little note for the more.. um.. experienced members ;) When you're RSVPing, try to keep a good balance of newbies to the rest of us. I mean, I'd love to see all of your sparkling smiling faces, but today we honor the new shy guys and gals! And we can all run around shooting each other at laser tag!!

Here is the link to the Central Phoenix meetup (feel free to join the one that's most convenient for you!): New Member Meetup CENTRAL PHX

    I'm wasn't feeling too good last night and I'm still not feeling the greatest this morning. I may have to back out of this one.

    • Karina Q.

      Aw :( That's too bad :( Hopefully you feel better.....

    I don't get the wait list thing? Why are all events limited, not just someone's living room??

    • Karina Q.

      We try to keep our events relatively small to encourage genuine social interaction for everyone that comes. A lot of times with some of the larger groups on MeetUp.com newcomers and people who aren't part of a smaller social group within the large MeetUp group end up getting left out. By keeping our events smaller, we hope that it allows everyone to genuinely be included. And since these events are a restaurants, the event hosts need to contact them to make reservations.

    Just made a reservation with the restaurant, looks like we're awesome enough for them to stick us in the party room! Should be easy enough to find us :D Either way, I'll leave my name with the front

  • Karina Q.

    Hey all! We're at the day before the event and I thought I'd remind you.. Update your RSVP's if you can't come! We have a waitlist to keep in mind! Thanks :D

  • Brian

    To anyone on the waitlist here, if you're not too far from Central Phoenix, there are a few spots available at the Central Phoenix new member event taking place at the same time as this one, but at The Old Spaghetti Factory.

    • Karina Q.

      Thanks Brian! Just a bit of clarification, our starts at noon, and Central Phoenix starts at 1!

    My work schedule changed, so I can't make it.

    September 8, 2013

    • Karina Q.

      Aw too bad! Hope to see you at the next event!

      September 9, 2013

  • Karina Q.

    I've updated the start time from 1pm to 12pm. We had to change the time for laser tag because the facility did not save our original time. We will be meeting for laser tag at 3pm. If you can't get there at noon, but can get there at 1, don't even worry about it. Let me know so I don't mark you as a no-show (for updated RSVP rules).

    Another thing to point, if you're maybe concerned about the drive to laser tag, anyone in this event who's planning on going to laser tag will have to drive back this direction anyways, I'm sure people are willing to carpool. Myself included. So don't let the location of laser tag discourage you! We want to pack the place in since we've got it reserved for us!

    Anyways, see you all next Saturday!

    I'm going to assume I'll be in my new job by then and have this day off.
