Season 4 Premiere and VG&P V (Mira Mesa, San Diego)

  • November 23, 2013 · 6:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

New ponies!  Yay!!

Special Notes This Time

• We will provide biscuits and gravy, so please consider bringing breakfast-related potluck foods (bacon, milk, OJ, etc.).

• We will be watching the episode *live* at 7am and continuing to play video games for the rest of the day.

• Before about 9am, please be *very* careful about volume, we really don't want to wake up our neighbors.

• The Dr. Who season premiere is also this day, but we don't think we will have access to watch it live :/

• We're going to be crazy and open our home for up to 20 bronies (22 counting us 2 O.o)  Please be considerate of others, and try to be quiet, especially before 9am.  We may not be able to fit everyone into the main room, so please be willing to share the smaller screen if necessary.

Intro

We are collectors of old video games and would like to have a pony and video game party with you! We live in the Mira Mesa area near the Target and Von's stores. Our systems include Intellivision, NES, N64, PS2, Wii, and more! Some systems have more games than others, so let us know if you'd like to bring your own to play.

We're in a 2-bedroom apartment, so space is limited, but we have a decent projector setup for about 10 people to enjoy, and another smaller setup in another room.

Sorry for the wall of text below. I'm trying to summarize the comments from the first event so we don't have to re-type things each time we have this kind of party.

We hope to see you there!

Transportation

Please find your own transportation to the meetup.  Giving rides can be fun, but HF & LG need to stay and get everything ready. :)-

Food
We'd love to do a potluck-style thing :) Comment below if you can bring chips/soda/snacks/etc, but don't feel bad if you can't think of something.
No alcohol please - there may be teens present, and Logic/Heart Felt don't like the stuff.

Games
If you would like to bring games for a system, see our full system list below. Of course, you can bring your own system if you want.
Please label your games so they don't get mixed up with other people's games.

Note: Please no M-Rated games... we like to keep things SFW / family friendly.

RSVPs
Since we have a limit on attendees - if you find out you can't come (which would be sad), please update your rsvp so someone else can come instead. Thanks!

    Per tradition, someone left something behind at the party today. This time it was a gray jacket. Please message us if it is yours so it can find its way home.

      My fault for this one. Forgot to take it with me when I left. n.n;

    It was awesome! I'm glad lots of people were able to come this morning!

      it was awesome indeed, thanks for having us, sucks I had to go early, but was falling asleep xD

      November 23, 2013

  • Rhythmic

    On my way

    November 23, 2013

  • Alex L.

    On my way now. I'll know by 6AM if ill make it.

    November 23, 2013

  • Rhythmic

    Can't wait. Getting ready as I type :3

    November 23, 2013

  • Brown W.

    How long does it take to preheat the oven to 400F? It's so I can hear the waffles to a crisp in five minutes.

    November 22, 2013

    • Logic G.

      If you would like us to preheat the oven, we can do that...

      November 22, 2013

    • Brown W.

      If you can get the oven ready by 6:30, it'll be great.

  • Marcos J.

    Can anyone provide a ride to the meetup?

    November 22, 2013

    • Logic G.

      I can't give a ride, but you may want to say where you're coming from.

      November 22, 2013

    • Marcos J.

      won't be able to go due I have to do volunteer work so have for the person who's going.

      November 22, 2013

  • Vaughn W.

    I'll probably bring chocolate chip muffins.

    November 21, 2013

  • Tedwin V.

    Still got room for 8 over at my place. I've upgraded the entertainment to include pancakes, omelettes, and for those of age, mimosas :D. If there's a transportation issue, message me and we'll see if we can work something out, though getting up at 0500 on a Sunday is something I generally try to avoid. But please RSVP so I can be sure I'm ready!

    November 21, 2013

  • Logic G.

    If your name is on the 'yes' list but you haven't found a ride yet or aren't sure you can come, please open up a spot for somepony else sometime today. For those on the waiting list, it would be a good idea to consider RSVPing for Tedwin's party in case a spot doesn't open up. Thanks to Tedwin for providing a back-up plan for bronies in SD to watch the premiere together. :)

    November 21, 2013

  • Tedwin V.

    Hey, for everyone on the waiting list, I'm going to have a party at my apartment in downtown San Diego so we all have somewhere to watch the premiere. I only have room for 10, but hopefully that will cover everyone. I'm right by the Trolley, so hopefully that helps transportation. Head on over to suggested meetups and let's make it happen!

    • Alex L.

      If transportation plans on Saturday fail I'll be going to Tedwin's meetup instead of this one since I'd have a better chance of making it there before 7AM.

      November 20, 2013

  • Brown W.

    Just curious, do you have two cookie sheets so I can cook lots of waffles at once or should I bring my own?

    November 18, 2013

  • Logic G.

    1 week left! There are now 8 bronies on the waiting list. If you have a spot, but you're not sure you have a ride or aren't at least 90% sure you're going, please rsvp 'no' by Thursday. We would like to know on Friday who is coming. Also, if you are currently on the waiting list, please only come if you get a spot. I'm sorry we can't fit everyone in our apartment, but if too many people come, we might have to end the party early for safety reasons. That would be sad. Thanks everypony for helping us have a fun, but safe and considerate (quiet for neighbors @ 7am) party, so we can keep having these in the future. :D

    November 16, 2013

  • Marcos J.

    are we able to come or what?

    November 10, 2013

    • Logic G.

      Since we're only in a two bedroom apartment, we have to limit how many people come. We're stretching a bit to have 20 people come over... since you're currently on the waiting list, we ask that you come only if someone else cancels. If that happens, meetup will move the next person out of the waiting list and I to the 'yes' list. We're sorry but everyone can come that wants to... good luck :) if it helps, we have these video game parties fairly regularly, so there is typically a 'next time'

      November 10, 2013

    • Logic G.

      Correction: Everyone can't come that wants to*...

      November 10, 2013

    Please be sure to check the 'special notes' section of the description this time, as a few things are different from previous VG&P events.

    November 8, 2013

  • Brown W.

    I'll bring frozen waffles and/or pancakes.

    November 5, 2013

      Cool

      November 5, 2013

    • Yoshi The D.

      Hey, Brown Wolf, are you going to this event and the Club LUNA, can I catch a ride with you??? I'll help out and pay for gas and such.

  • Yoshi The D.

    I would REALLY like this go to this meetup event and I need a ride to it. Anyone can help me? I live in Chula Vista.

    November 7, 2013

  • Rhythmic

    RSVP'd in time :3

    November 6, 2013

  • Alex L.

    I can try and make it but 6:30 is too early for me. Most likely I'd be coming in the middle/end of things.

    November 5, 2013

    • Alex L.

      According to Google Maps, If I took the 1st trolley of the day out of Santee, which is 5:20, I won't be there until around 7:20/7:30 which would be the end time of the premiere.

      November 6, 2013

    • Casey S.

      Actaully, you would have only missed the first epeisode of the two parter.

      November 6, 2013

  • Kyle D.

    Is there anyone willing to give me a ride? I checked how long it would take me to get there and I won't arrive until around 8. I'll pay gas money.

    November 6, 2013

    • Kyle D.

      I will RSVP just in case someone can give me a ride. If no one can, I'll change it to no.

      November 6, 2013

  • Kyle D.

    I would go to this but taking the bus that early in the morning all the way to Mira Mesa is a no go.

    November 5, 2013

  • Brown W.

    Also, I will bring in a gallon of cider.

    November 5, 2013

  • Casey S.

    I'll bring donuts.
