"St. Patty-Gras" House Party!!!!

  • March 15, 2014 · 8:30 PM
  • Caitlin's House

If you've just RSVP'd for this event you can get a meet-up api key and visit http://2030s.site90.com to get Caitlin's address.

I just wrote that page so it's very experimental but it should work for now ;) ... also you should reset your key after using it.

--------------------------------------

DUE TO THE SNOW AND THIS BEING AN INDOOR/OUTDOOR PARTY WITH MY FIREPIT IN THE BACK, I HAD TO PUSH THE PARTY BACK TWO WEEKS.  THE DATE IS NOW SATURDAY MARCH 15th.

AND SINCE THAT IS CLOSER TO ST PATTYS DAY THAN MARDI GRAS, I AM MAKING IT A "ST PATTY-GRAS" PARTY - A COMBO MARDI GRAS/ ST PATTYS DAY PARTY.  THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS WITH BEADS AND CLOVERS!!

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP IF YOU CAN NO LONGER ATTEND!!!!!!

------------------------------------------------


I'm glad so many people had fun at the glow in the dark party!  Several people have been asking when the "next" one is....so here it goes....let's have a Mardi Gras celebration!!

Due to the small size of my house and yard I am limiting this to 30 people (plus some of my friends who are not on Meetup).  It worked out well last time because some people came earlier and some people came later.  There will be music, possibly karaoke, and you can either chill indoors or chill outdoors by the firepit. 

There will be lots of decorations, beads, hats, masks, noise makers, etc.!  So this time I am charging a small $5 fee to offset some of the costs of throwing a party for so many people....trust me, I won't be pocketing any money lol.  Even with everyone bringing something, it still costs a decent amount of money to throw a party, when you add up all the incidentals, such as fire starter logs, tiki torch oil, decorations, plates, etc.  And since this is mardi gras it will be a lot more fun with lots of decorations and costume items, so let's all chip in a few dollars to make this party awesome!! 

So to help offset the costs I ask that everyone brings $5 cash (exact change) to the party.  I still also ask that everyone brings around $5-$15 worth of beer, desserts, appetizers, etc.  Once it gets closer everyone can post on here what they're bringing!

    PLEASE POST HERE what food or drink item you will be bringing along with your $5. Figure spending $5 to $15 on this "item". I already purchased all the paper products, so here are the suggested items: Beer, liquor, wine, soda, juices & mixers for mixed drinks, pizza, appetizers, chips, cookies, cupcakes, candies, S'mores supplies. Last time the hot item was pizza - Dawn was gracious enough to bring two pizzas and they both got devoured in a matter of minutes! So if a couple of you could bring a pizza or two that would be great! Another item that was overlooked last time was juice and other mixers - I had a couple bottles of cranberry juice in my fridge, as well as some Gatorade, and it all got devoured. I will have some cranberry juice and orange juice again this time, but we still need more given the amount of people coming. So don't just think to bring alcohol - think about the other stuff as well! SO PLEASE POST BELOW WHAT YOU PLAN TO BRING SO THERE'S A GOOD VARIETY!!

    I just e-mailed everyone the address. I will not be reachable from now until tomorrow (Saturday) at 5pm, so if for some reason you didn't get it, please e-mail another member on the guest list for the info.

    March 14, 2014

    • Caitlin

      Meetup doesnt allow attacments in emails, so I tried doing the link! I guess its not working as I'd hope. If you still need the address you can text me[masked]

      March 15, 2014

    • Ryan

      Link did not work for me on iPhone last night so I figured it was a mobile thing and I would try this morning on a laptop - but that didn't work either! I will text you.

    I will email my address and directions this evening. Please update your rsvp if you are not going to attend. Please do not wait till the last second tomorrow evening because it is unfair to people waiting to get on the guest list.

    Hey Caitlin,
    I've now got no car, and so I'm still eager to hear if I'll be able to get to your party in some way by public transportation. Could somebody pick me up/drop me off at a nearby train station?

    Thanks,.
    Dan Nehmad

    • Caitlin

      Where are you coming from? Theres a bus that goes right near the house...otherwise the south amboy train station is 2 miles away if someone wants to give u a lift...unfortunately i cant really leave my house while the party is going on

      March 4, 2014

    • Eugene P.

      Dan, from your profile I can see you are in Princeton. I can pick you up. The best way to contact me is by phone:[masked] anytime after 10 am. Plz no text.

    Inside my house is going to be the Mardi Gras celebration, and my backyard is going to be the St. Patty's Day celebration!! So pick where you want to party, or flip flop between areas!! I have lots of decorations so both areas will be very decorated, and I have loads of costume items for both Mardi Gras and St. Patty's day. Feel free to come with your own costume items, but even if you come as a blank slate there's plenty to go around for everyone to get "festive" - all sorts of cool things!!!

    In addition to all the costume items, I will also be providing all the plates, cups, cutlery, napkins, paper towels, ice, and bottled water. I also have some beer and liquor to contribute.

    March 8, 2014

  • Caitlin

    If you are not 100% sure you can come (minus any unforeseen emergencies), PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP TO "NO"!!! It is not fair to "hold" your spot on the chance you can come, since there are people who are able to come that are waiting to make the list. Furthermore, I bought party supplies for 30 people, and if you don't show, the cost of those extra supplies will be coming out of my own pocket - not cool. So again, please only RSVP yes if you are DEFINITELY COMING.

    OK, DUE TO THE SNOW STILL BEING HERE AND THE FORECAST SAYING IT'S GOING TO STAY COLD AND POSSIBLY SNOW AGAIN, I HAD TO PUSH THE PARTY BACK TWO WEEKS. Sorry if this caused any inconvenience, but I can only fit everyone if it's an indoor/outdoor party with my firepit in the back. So please update your RSVP if you can no longer make it!

    • Cara

      I'm still good ☺️

      February 25, 2014

  • Caitlin

    My house is really small so i was counting on this being indoor/outdoor with the firepit going in the back. But there's still snow on the ground and it could possibly snow again on wednesday!! So I will wait till the middle of the week and see, but I may have to postpone this a week or two...:-\ I will keep everyone updated

    Hey everyone! I just posted a pic of some of the costume items/decorations to give you all an idea of what the party will be like! It should be a lot of fun as long as all this snow melts by then!!
