Geeky White Elephant (Christmas Social 2014)

Tonight is our Winter Social & Geeky White Elephant. Expect a large bit of socializing and gift swapping later the evening, but no real plans or aim to out hours together except to hang out and have fun with each other.

If you're interested in participating in the Geeky White Elephant please bring a $10-$15 dollar Geeky White Elephant gift (serious geeky gifts, not normal tacky White Elephant gift), wrapped. We'll pull names from a hat and get into the spirit of the crazy mix of present figuring out toward the middle of end of the night.

      There is a hidden with a sliding door when you come all the way in. The door is half open and there is a reserved sign.

      Haaaa. Yes!

    Sorry I can't make this one. I have a previous engagement. I know it will be fun, please take pictures. I will be reading the posts and keeping in touch.

    December 3, 2014

    • Lorraine

      We'll miss you. Hopefully you can make the next one!

      1 · December 6, 2014

  • Amanda

    It looks like we're going to end up a bit cozy in the room tonight, as we're holding at 27 this morning (and they said 25 would be cozy for it already), so come prepared to be/get a bit close and friendly with your neighbors tonight. We will definitely find a way to make this work with everyone. I cannot wait to see all of you and the truly hilarious, amazing white elephant gifts you'll have brought for the fun! I'm super excited to see all of you.

    December 6, 2014

    • Amanda

      As a clarification, as it has been commented on, your gift don't have to be hilarious. They just have to be geeky.

      1 · December 6, 2014

    • Amanda

      See you all in a little under three hours!

      1 · December 6, 2014

    Sorry if my last minute RSVP was too last minute. I've been on this list for quite some time and have never been able to make it to anything, looking forward to meeting all of you.

    3 · December 6, 2014

    • Amanda

      Do not worry! We're all looking forward to seeing you! This is a perfectly great time to start as a new person.

    If anyone is still looking to buy a gift nerdtacular con is going on this Saturday at wonderland mall on Fredericksburg rd from 10am on also Sunday at 6pm if anyone wants to go

    3 · December 1, 2014

    • Beth1979

      Ok but don't be 2 late cause I'll be at the Christmas social at 6 and I might look awkward dressed as waffles without my chicken

      1 · December 4, 2014

    • Ed

      LoL I'm still undecided about wearing the gear or casual! :-)

      1 · December 5, 2014

  • Amanda

    I called to check on our reservation, which is all there and good, and they are saying 25 people is going to be okay but maybe super cozy together.

    2 · December 3, 2014

  • Amanda

    As we've just knocked into 20 (even counting tentatively's) I may call and see about getting us expanded to a 25 reservation. I'm so excited to see how this goes this weekend! We have so many people. This could be hilarious. I will definitely have to bring post it's for the White Elephant this time!

    1 · December 1, 2014

    • Ed

      Amanda, recommend that if some folks can't make it that they remove their RSVP so you can have an accurate head count :-)

      December 2, 2014

  • Scott L.

    I would LOVE to come. But I was invited to the Ferrari Club Christmas Party the same evening. And someone paid for my ticket. Sorry!

    Hope to catch up with you guys soon!

    Tentatively,
    I'm there.....Lots of things happening this week though.

    I'm not sure where to go to find geeky gifts. I'm new to San Antonio. Any suggestions?

      Found it! Ooples, 7460 Callaghan Rd #410, San Antonio, TX[masked]

      1 · November 30, 2014

    • Amanda

      I had a bunch of fun finding mine at comics stores and book stores and everywhere.

      November 30, 2014

  • Amanda

    As I'm headed out of town and won't be around this weekend, I went ahead and made us a reservation. Same time, only the location has changed, and now that we aren't in a private location, please do not bring dishes! Can't wait to see you all and your kickass geeky gifts in a few weeks!

    2 · November 14, 2014

  • Janora

    There is also a Chester's Hamburgers on Loop 410 Access Rd. right next to the Magic Time Machine in between Broadway and Nacogdoches and they have a party room, a private party room that is sizable with lots of tables. It's not too fancy and I have been to a child's birthday party there, so I would imagine that it's not too pricey.

    1 · November 11, 2014

    • Ed

      Been here too! Great service also but if I had to rate one above the other, I'd pick La Madelines

      November 12, 2014

  • Amanda

    We're going to need to find a spot that can hold all of us. Maybe a party room at a La Madelines, or maybe Mad Hatters, if we can find a house or rec room or something someone can recommend?

    1 · November 7, 2014

    • Ed

      I've been to La Madelines too - another great location!

      1 · November 12, 2014

  • Janora

    Does anybody that is going live in an apartment building that has a party room?

    November 11, 2014

  • Janora

    There is also a party room at the Magic Time Machine. How about that place?

    November 11, 2014

  • Janora

    How about Dave and Busters?

    November 11, 2014

  • Amanda

    We're getting to within a month of this happening, so if no one can offer suggestions on where to meetup by this coming weekend that's a free private/public location (like a house, rec room, library, etc) I'm going to go ahead an make a reservation fora restaurant this year. I'm totally open to suggestions. I want this to be as awesome as possible for all involved.

    1 · November 11, 2014

    I'll take pics if I can make it! :-)
