Christmas day activities

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.

    I will definitely hook up with you guys at Hibachi at 5;00PM. My plane, provided it's on time, does not get in until around 12:30, so making The Hobbit would be a stretch, and I also saw it this past weekend anyways (not that I would not be up for seeing it again). Hasta manana y Feliz Navidad.

    Here is the plan. I'll create a meet up when i get home. We are hiking at ventana canyon, starting at 9:30am. We are going to see the hobbit at park place mall at 1:25pm. We are eating dinner at hibachi super buffet at 5pm. We are going to see Thor 2 at park place mall at 8:55. Feel free to call me at[masked] if you can't find us. Please do not call between 10pm and 6am. I won't answer during the movie and won't have reception during the hike. Join us for any event or events you like to. Come for one or all or any combo.

    I'll check in on Xmas day to see what you've decided to do on the 25th. Second xmas in a row with no family in town and no way to get out of town...so I'm feeling a little bit blue...and can't find Santa or Elvis to play with....feeling a little blue and alone. If affordable I'd love to join y'all!

      Lars, the plan for tonight is to get together and discuss ideas for what to do tomorrow. We'll update this meetup with what we come up with, and if i remember, i'll post a new meetup for tomorrow's activities. It'll be good to see you again, my friend!

      Sounds good Phil. I will check this board/thread. Yes, it's been too long.

    I'm going to do my best to make it; it sounds like good conversation with people I look forward to getting to know.

    Not going to make this one after all. I got tapped to fill in for someone to do the night program on Kitt Peak on the 24th. ("No ma'am, I cannot point the telescope at the "Christmas Star" for you. It seems that we don't have enough Wise Men or Virgins here tonight.")

    I'm kind of leaning towards doing some sort of light/moderate hike. Something in the 5-7 miles range. Not sure on location just yet.

    • Cymosa

      La Milagrosa/Agua Caliente Canyon makes a good moderately strenuous loop hike, a little over 6mi and located on the far east side of town.

      1 · December 13, 2013

    • Philip M.

      I'm definitely considering that one. Also possibly doing that with the hiking group.

    Philip - The Jazz is not something you have to be on time for!! You can stop in anytime between 7 & 10! Just wanted you to know!!

    December 12, 2013

  • marilyn b.

    Hi Phillip - This is just an idea! Christmas Day night there will be Jazz with "Tony Frank" at "UNPLUGGED" at 118 E. Congress starting at about 7 - 10 p.m. Idea would be to end activities there after Xmas Day!!

    • Philip M.

      That sounds like a good idea. kim gets off at 7, though, so i don't think i'd go. Jazz is always good :)
