Little Tokyo Holiday Shopping + Karaoke


Secret Santa drawing is back! It’s our annual Little Tokyo holiday shopping day and the perfect time to gather around friends. This event is to get everyone into the holiday spirit. For all who wish to participate there will be a Secret Santa drawing. This is how it works. Secret Santa is an anonymous gift exchange that works by allowing each participant to choose another participants name out of a hat or box. They then have to buy a present for that member. The spending limit for the gift exchange is $15.00

We'll first enjoy lunch together at Ebisu.  At lunch, we draw for Secret Santa, to be exchanged at the end of the day!

Then we shop in the Los Angeles otaku paradise that is Little Tokyo. *^^*
Afterwards, why not some karaoke? Getting a room together would be the perfect place for the gift exchange.  When we all split the room costs, it can end up rather cheap.  End the day with song.

Please comment below, if you know you are interested in the karaoke portion, so I can reserve the right size room.  Much Thanks! <3


-------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE
happy for the mucho rsvp count! <3 therefor though, needed to tailor event slightly.
Changed the time to 1PM, to better accommodate the needs of the restaurant for a large group.

Highly encouraged to review the menu here in advance: http://www.ebisu-la.com
This will help out everyone out greatly: restaurant less bombarded, we get yummy food faster. XD~
Once you've chosen what you'd like, please enter in the comments section.

Think of what stores you might want to check out! We'll likely attack them in smaller groups, and then congregate at the end of the day for karaoke.  Which also can be posted in the comments section.

Lets meet together again at 5PM here
open area outside of Max Karaoke, 333 S Alameda St
(walking distance from Little Tokyo town center)


Look forward to seeing you.  If you need help finding us, please feel free to text[masked]

    Unfortunately I ended up not going because I was feeling under the weather a couple of hours before meeting time and literally slept the whole day away... Hopefully I can get to another meet up later... eventually.

    This year's format was a bit different from the past. The group gathered at Ebisu for lunch then split up with everyone free to explore Little Tokyo however they wished. I hit up Anime Jungle, Kinokuniya, and Marukai. The group met up again at Little Tokyo Mall. I left just before 5pm. I was happy to meet some new members and glad to hang out with some old members I haven't seen in a while.

    What's the parking situation like in this area, and how will we recognize the members of the group (for those of us who are new to it)?

    November 25, 2013

    • HelloAllan

      its a weekend street parking should be free. park somewhere in arts district and walk to little tokyo.

      November 25, 2013

    • kagome95-Joseline.T

      Yeah because every time I go to little Tokyo I have to pay 7:00$ for parking Lapp. XD it would be awesome if we don't got to pay anything that day.. :3

      November 26, 2013

  • Amy H

    Will be out of town.

    November 25, 2013

  • Melody

    Just wanted to mention... the few times I've been to the Karaoke place in Little Tokyo, it seems the biggest room doesn't offer Japanese song selections. Not sure if it's always been this way or not. If you're looking to sing songs in Japanese probably will need to split into smaller rooms.

    November 10, 2013

    • Melody

      I know you have to pay extra fee for bringing your own food and beverages... but I'm not sure if they limit beverage to non-alcoholic only or not

      November 14, 2013

    • HelloAllan

      ok ty

      November 14, 2013

  • kagome95-Joseline.T
