  • Laura

    Hey Jason, I have never attended one of these events and I was just wondering if this is an event where you should get there right at 6 or its more there are things to check out and are available throughout the evening type deal? Mostly I am also wondering about food there since eating is pretty much one of my favorite things...if I should eat before going :P

    February 21, 2014

    • Tracey S

      Also the event runs all night, unless you are doing a tour, there aren't really many set times.

      February 21, 2014

    • Laura

      Thanks Jason and Tracy for all of the info! :)

      February 21, 2014

    • Jason

      Hi Ryan! I'll be there about 20 minutes early, hopefully. I'll be wearing a black and white striped sweater and black jeans. You can call or text me at[masked] if you need. We should be meeting somewhere near the entrance, inside. I'll post an exact location when I get there.

    Hi everybody! Really looking forward to finally doing this, and *thank you* to Janet for suggesting it! With events like this, where there are often a lot of people at the place and there's 30 of us trying to find each other, here's what I normally do with our group to help us all find each other:

    (1) I'll be there about 20 minutes early, I hope.
    (2) I will find a place somewhere near the entrance, inside.
    (3) I will post a comment here on the event page saying where I am. You can check that from your mobile phone if you can.
    (4) If you need to call or text me, my number is[masked]-0322.
    (5) I'll be wearing black jeans and a black & white striped sweater. I have short brown hair.

    We have a lot of first-timers going to this. That's great! I'm looking forward to meeting you all. If this is your first time, just remember - most everyone who will be at the event is meeting each other for the first time too. Don't feel shy - say hi! Meeting new people is what our group is all about.
