Furry Meet-Up Dinner @ Sakura-Con 2013

Are you attending Sakura-Con 2013? Do you live in the Seattle Area and want to meet local furs? Just plain hungry?

On Thursday night of the convention, March 28th 2013 (See edit on bottom about possible date change), I'd love to meet up at the Cheesecake Factory around 9:00PM for a big ol' group dinner! The Cheesecake Factory is centrally located, next to a parking garage, and LITERALLY right across the street from the con center.

For More Information:

Sakura-Con ( http://sakuracon.org/ )

The Cheesecake Factory ( http://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/ )
700 Pike Street Seattle, WA 98109
(206)[masked]

While looking at their website, it states that "We can easily accommodate parties of up to 25 guests" so up to that number should be fine. Anything over and there will be a pretty big wait.

Please RSVP by March 27th, so I know what number to scare the poor hosts at TCF with. If we are above 10 guests, the wait will be higher, so I'll go early to  reserve our spot. Feel free to join me there around 8:30 to wait (if ya' like that sorta thing). I will also be giving out my cell number if anyone needs to reach me. :3


I am welcome to any suggestions if location, time, date, or whatever does not work for many people. Look forward to seeing all of you!

EDIT* We are currently debating on whether to change the date to Thursday the 28th of March. It'll be much easier for a large group of us to walk in. If you have questions or concerns with this, please comment below. In a few weeks, if there are no big complains, I will be changing the date. Thanks!

 

EDIT* As a clarifyer, everyone will be responsible for their own bill. I would love if I had the funds to take everyone out, but sadly, I do not. Please bring enough to cover yourself, do not put it on other furs to do so.

 

ALSO, My number is[masked]-9672. As con gets closer, feel free to text me whenever you like. I won't be good with directions, so google maps that, but I can definitely answer and other questions for ya.

    It's probably not the best idea to suit at a dinner meet, is it? :p Having just finished my first, I'm eager to wear it... but I should wait until the actual con, perhaps. I don't need to be a jackalope with cheesecake all over his face. See you all soon!

    If you arrive and we are already seated, please ask for the 'Furlife' party.

    If anyone is coming from Tacoma or around that area I'll tag along since I have nothing else to do tomorrow night.

      I'm in Tacoma and going up for the convention but I'm taking a bus and early because I'm staffing this year

    • Terry

      I'm probably not going to the convention as I have to be back in Eastern Washington by Sunday--classes start Monday

    I'm sick as shit. I'm lucky if I can even attend SakuraCon at all now. Either way, I think dinner is out of the question for me. :(

    March 27, 2013

    • Kuhori

      Awh!! I hope to see you Max! Feel better!

      March 27, 2013

    • Greyscale

      Maybe next time! >: Hope you can still make it to con!

      March 27, 2013

  • Relena

    I have to staff the con till 9, but I'll be there as soon as possible since its right across the street :D

    March 26, 2013

    • Greyscale

      Awesome! See you there! Are you still interested in Handling? :3

      March 26, 2013

    • Relena

      Yep

  • Greyscale

    Alrighty! Talked to the Cheescake Factory this morning about their policies concerning large parties. Because we will be more than 30 people, we will be sat at two tables, but they will be close to each other. They do not take reservations for dinner time, so it is first come first serve and I was recommended to show up about 30 minutes early. I will still be sticking to my 8pm arrival for 9pm seating, you all are welcome to join us while we wait! Again, my phone number is listed, so do not hesitate to text me if needed~!

    Sounds like fun.

  • MaxCoyote

    Downgrading to a maybe. I work that day from 4am to 4pm. Kinda long hard day to stay up till 10pm. Might be too much for me. :(

    February 21, 2013

    • MaxCoyote

      I will be able to make it! Mostly cause I forgot I have to goto downtown anyway to register. XD

      March 24, 2013

      Oh good!!

    I haven't attended any furry meetups yet so I'm a bit of a newbie, but I'm finishing up my first suit for SakuraCon. Debuting it with tasty noms sounds like a fantastic way to get to know everybody. :)

    March 17, 2013

    • Greyscale

      Cool! Do you have any pics of your suit?

      March 18, 2013

    • Arttimo V.

      I've been taking pictures as it reaches completeness, but I haven't posted them anywhere yet. Soon!

    I'm not going to Sakura con, but I'm always up for a dinner out 8)

    I know you mention going a little early to check-in. However, would it be possible to call now to make reservation so they can be ready plenty of time ahead? Wait-staff will then also know they will need to accomodate. A large group like this might be hard to seat otherwise.

    March 17, 2013

    • Greyscale

      I'm not sure they take reservations, but I can definitely call in the next few days to find out. Their website says they can easily accommodate 25 guests, but I'll see if there is a way to call ahead or what. ;3

    I have to work that night at midnight but i will be there

    I don't think I can do Thursday :c since I'll only be in Seattle to pick up pre reg

    February 12, 2013

    • Greyscale

      Sorry. :< I gave people a month to respond and with no comments, I went ahead and changed it. The Cheesecake Factory will be waaaay swamped Friday night, so doing it Thursday makes a bit more sense. I hope you can still make it!

      February 12, 2013

  • Greyscale­ changed the date and time from Friday, March 29, 2013 at 9:00 PM to Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 9:00 PM

    Hey Everyone! Under 70 Days till Sakura-Con, are you excited? I was thinking about our big meet-up dinner and I'm debating moving it to March 28th, which is Day 0 of con. This is due to Friday night being suuuuper crazy at TCF and us having a lack of things to do Thursday night. I know it could also help those who may have to work Friday Night. Lemme know your thoughts! I won't change it if people want it to stay on friday, but again, COMMENT! <3

    Thought I'd post this here and in the other Sakura-Con event; Attention furs! Will you be attending con, have nothing to do, and not suiting? Would you like to be handlers for a couple of suiters? Our little group of furs (4 people) are looking for some handlers to walk around and hang out with us. Con can be a bit hard on fursuiters, what with the food and crazy body paint. Anyone willing?

  • Yu P.

    This sounds fun! I'll definitely be attending SakuraCon, but I don't normally stay up this late. I'll decide closer to the convention - hopefully I'll be up for it.~

    January 10, 2013

    • Greyscale

      We would definitely love to have you! I hope you decide to come and get some noms with us. :3

    If I'm not working.

  • Keeko

    I'll try! Should be working the con anyways. C:

  • Wake The S.

    I'd love to go but at Sakura-Con I'll be on a tight budget xD

    November 21, 2012

    • Greyscale

      Well you wouldn't need to come get a full dinner, maybe just a slice of cheesecake or some soda. :)

      November 21, 2012

  • Greyscale

    Furries, Chessecake, and Cosplay, OH MY!
