Celebrate Milwaukee Fun's 1st Anniversary! A Mardi Gras Party @ EVO Gastro Pong!

Note: The location has not changed.  SPiN Milwaukee changed its name on February 11th to EVO (Evolution Milwaukee Gastro Pong).

IT'S OUR ANNIVERSARY! This past year has been transformative in so many ways. We've explored Milwaukee, had great times, and most importantly, we've met all of you! Our group has become one of the larger social clubs in the area, and it's time to celebrate!

Tickets include 2 free drinks and group appetizers.  A cash bar and full menu will also be available.  Games, music, and ping pong will be played!  Special door prizes and other surprises await.

We've reserved a private room at EVO (Evolution Milwaukee Gastro Pong, formerly known as SPIN Milwaukee), one of our most popular events from the past year, for Saturday March 1st. We'll have table tennis, games to play, a lounge area, a private bar area just for us, and food and appetizers available to us all. We've got the room reserved for 3 hours.

Tickets cost $18 in advance or $25 at the door.  This event may sell out, so please reserve and purchase your tickets early!  Tickets may be paid for by Paypal (which also accepts credit cards), or you may pay in person directly to Jason at any Milwaukee Fun event which he attends.  Proceeds will go to help cover the cost of the event, and any overages will be applied to the costs of running our awesome group.

Please RSVP early so that we can have a proper headcount!

I can't wait to see you all and toast to the amazing year we have had!

See you soon!

    The Mardi Gras anniversary party was a great idea! I had a good time, and enjoyed chatting and meeting new people. The festive food, beads, masks, funny name tags, door prizes were a nice touch... really went all out to make a fun theme party! Thank you for putting together a fantastic event.

    This was such a wonderful time. There were so many people that came. Playing ping pong and jenga was lots of fun. It was really nice that they gave us two tables just outside the room to use too. The appitizers they put together special for us were yummy. The only thing that bothered me was how loud it was in the room. With the music echoing off the walls people had to talk really loud to each other and that just made it louder over all. Even with that though it was a wonderful event. Happy 1st Anniversary!!!

    I have to rush to bed for a 3 hour nap before heading to the airport, so I can't comment fully with everything I would like to say. But I will do my best for now with this: tonight was incredible. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this happen. My full name-by-name thanks is on my Facebook page and the group's Facebook page at http://facebook.com/milwaukeefun. Thank you to all of you who attend our get-togethers, those who I now call friends, and those who I hope to one day call friends. You all make this little club of ours the success it has been.

    I can't wait to see what's next.

      For what it's worth, beads, feather masks, and masquerade masks will be available at the party for anyone who wants to join in on the fun. And you are all welcome to bring your own, as well!

    Hi everyone!

    With only a week left until the party, I wanted to send out a quick reminder to those who haven't paid yet to please do so at your earliest convenience. If you wait until the day of the event, the cost will be $25 instead of $18.

    Because it's critical that I have an accurate headcount, if you know you will not be going to the event (6:30 PM on Saturday, 3/1), please change your RSVP to 'no' as soon as you can.

    I really appreciate your help!

    Tony is good!

      Damn straight. Lol.

      1 · February 21, 2014

  • Jason

    If you haven't yet paid for your ticket(s), please do so! The more money we collect up front, the more cool stuff we can add to the party.

    Financial accounting for the party is open and transparent. Feel free to check out our FB page https://www.facebook.com/milwaukeefun to see how ticket costs are being applied to the group and to the event.

    Can't get the pay pal to accept my card. Will I be able to pay at the door?

    February 1, 2014

    • Jason

      Hey Gabriel. Same deal, if Paypal doesn't work for you, feel free to pay in person prior to the event any time you see me. Hope that helps!

    • Tracey S

      What is the email to PayPal?

      February 16, 2014

  • Jason

    FYI: SPiN Milwaukee is changing its name on February 11th to Evolution Milwaukee Gastro Pong. I've confirmed that this change doesn't affect our party, it's still on and everything is all good. I've updated the description of the event to reflect the new name, and I'll get a new graphic created as soon as I see what their new logo looks like.

    Looking forward to meeting new people in the area

  • Jason

    I stopped by Spin to check out the room we will be in, and I talked to the manager. We decided it's reasonable to increase our head-count from 60 to 75 attendees! After making the change, there are now 2 spots open. RSVP now! This event will sell out.

    Also, I'd like to thank Cliff at The Comedy Depot for becoming this event's first sponsor. Please visit their website at http://www.thecomedydepot.com for updates on their monthly shows in Brookfield!

    More to come, soon. This is going to be a blast, folks. I can't wait to celebrate Mardi Gras and our anniversary with you all!

      Can you bring in food?

      January 4, 2014

    • Jason

      I will bring in a king cake, but no, I exchange for our discounted rate, we will be using their menu for food purchases.
