In town for the holidays with no plans? Come join us for...something!
We did this last year, and it turned out pretty well. My girlfriend is working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so i've got no plans for the day. Last year we met on the 24th to plan what we'd like to do, and on the 25th, we went out to the movies and then to a chinese buffet for dinner.
Let's get some discussion going here in the comments, meet up in the afternoon on the 24th and decide what to do then. If you're unable to join us on the 24th for the planning but want to participate on the 25th, keep an eye out on this meetup and I'll update with the appropriate information. Please don't be shy about posting ideas if you want to do something different. We don't have to do one thing as one group. We can totally split up and have different groups doing different things - the only point is to do what we can to have a nice day and not be "stuck" being alone.
My only caveat is that i can't plan everyone's various events. We've got two weeks, so if you want to make something happen, do the leg work to plan it! I promise it's not that hard.
