End of the World Holiday Dinner & Skating Party! Cho's Garden. 아이스 스케이트 & dinner

  • December 21, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Update: 아이스 스케이트 & 저녁 식사... discussion and suggestions for this came up with ice skating for a way to celebrate the event: ice skating & dinner.  Indoor ice skating (because of weather forecast), then dinner nearby.

As everyone kinda knows, Dec 21, 2012 is forecast to be the end of the world due to a (possible) interpretation of the Mayan calendar.

Given that the Mayans did not have much success with their civilization, it is noted that their calendar should probably be given the same treatment.

But, since it's a Friday, and it will be a date in the news, let's see who wants to celebrate and share good times.

    Thank you, Paul, for taking your valuable time to keep us all informed. Not every Meetup Group Organizer does what you do!

    I updated time to 6:30pm, but people can still arrive at 7pm. Also, I had offered to pick up at a metro (30 comments ago), and believe I'll be near Springfield metro (and will update if not).

      Yeh Yeh Yeh! Thanks:-)

      Paul, could I get a ride to Cho's? Should I meet you at Springfield Metro? Just let me know ^^

      1 · December 21, 2012

    Awesome interest in this event! Thanks everyone for offering rides, suggestions, comments. People can arrive any time, and the people who are skating will probably go by 8:15. Skaters should wear or bring clothes to stay warm. To find us, enter Cho's Garden and go to the right to the bar area... we've reserved that section. Here's what it looked like for our group a few months ago (with some karaoke pics too) - http://www.meetup.com/koreans/p...­]

    Daria do you still need a ride?

    December 19, 2012

  • Rich

    Can we arrive after 7pm? Some of us don't get off work until 6pm and it will take a while to get from Alexandria to Fairfax in rush hour traffic.

    December 20, 2012

  • Grace

    Don't know how to skate, oops!!!

    • Sean

      You will be holding onto the rail all night long, but it will really be fun exactly because most of us dont know how to skate. You will see. :-)

      December 20, 2012

    Let all respect one another spaces.

    i really want to go to this but i actually will be working a modeling job at the pentagon mall so driving isn't wise plus it will take me forever to go from chevy chase to the event by car. is there anyone that i can carpool with? well i guess its more appropriate to say, is there someone who can pick me up at 8 at the pentagon mall in arlington va? its in va not far from the event, about 20 mins from the event. i can pay gas & mileage its not a problem but taking a car to pentagon mall wont be pleasant especially since i have to be at work at the heart of rush hour...anyway if anyone can pick me up let me know & i can give u my digits. thanks

    December 18, 2012

  • tim

    Should we skate first than go eat after the skating!:-)

    December 18, 2012

    • Deana

      That was also suggested but, many people didnt want to eat later in the evening. Personally, either way works for me.

      1 · December 18, 2012

    • tim

      I'll just eat after work, meet u guys at restaurant or skating place. Thanks for the info Deana. Salamat [=•)

      December 18, 2012

  • tim

    Please tell me what plan. I think eat myself and meet u guys for skating

    December 18, 2012

  • tim

    Dinner first than skating. I'm worry that if we first eat ,it will be to late to skate. =•\

    December 18, 2012

    • Deana

      For those who want to skate we will have to eat quickly (about an hour) than head over to the ice arena.

      December 18, 2012

  • Deana

    Group rate per person is $6.25 (7 or more) skate rental is $3. The arena is open until 10pm.

    December 18, 2012

  • Deana

    I am going to call the Fairfax Ice Arena tomorrow. How many are interested in skating after dinner?

    1 · December 17, 2012

    • Phil

      December 18, 2012

    December 18, 2012

  • tim

    December 18, 2012

  • Craig F.

    I'm a maybe for skating

    December 18, 2012

  • Gloria K

    So, can I decide after dinner if I wanna go ice-skating or do you need to know in advance the number of people interested for reservation?

    December 17, 2012

    • Rashana

      Early the better because of there are 10 or more interested we can get a group discount

      December 17, 2012

  • Paul

    Looking a little more, someone said yesterday the public skating started at 7:30, but I see here it starts at 8;30, which is too late unless there is dinner first - http://www.fairfaxicearena.com/...­

    Although we did start at 8:30 for ice skating about 2 years ago, in DC, after a dinner meetup - http://www.meetup.com/koreans/p...­]

    thoughts? (i.e. dinner at 6:30/7pm-ish, then skating?) Also, I believe I can pick people up at a metro, 5:30 or so.

    December 17, 2012

    • Deana

      Dinner first is okay with me.

      Dinner first. Then the bold ones who want to go ice skating can skate the night away...

      December 17, 2012

    Paul, I suggest changing the starting time to an earlier time if ice skating is done. I really don't want to sit down to a dinner at 9:00 PM. Others may feel the same way.

    I'll watch the rest of you ice skate! Paul, if this is going to start at 7:00 PM, dinner will be really late in the evening if ice skating is done.

  • Sherni

    Oyeeeeeeeeeee..... yeah.. I originally signed up for the event...thinking it was going to be an actual party.. I now see it will be ICE SKATING... hmmmmmmmm.. not good for me...

    December 17, 2012

  • Margaret K.

    I am interested in going but will need to know a time and location to know if I can make it or not! I was sad to miss last Saturday's party but had already made another commitment.

    December 16, 2012

  • Sean

    Paul....u spelled it "ice skate" in Korean, and left out the "ing". Not quite there yet, huh. :-)

    Will be working that night... :/ but is there going to be a new years eve party or anything?

    1 · December 16, 2012

    • Paul

      We'll set up a new year's eve party. For this Friday (21st) several people came up with the idea to go ice skating, and picked this place: http://www.fairfaxice...­ (and it is only 5 minutes from Cho's Garden, which has karaoke at the bar).
