Announcing a new meeting for The Twin Cities Night Life Meetup Group!

What: Festival of the Fire Gods!

When: Saturday, April 19, 8:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: ONLY the COOL KIDS are invited, of course!

Why: We'll check our egos, religion & politics at the door...
So let's just relax, enjoy good company, and ENTERTAIN each other!

Meeting Description: HEADS UP!!! Coming up in a few weeks to a hobbit hole near you...
(Right around Earth-day-ish time, because, life is as much for US as our mother planet!)

The FIRE GODS have spoken! It's time to CELEBRATE!!!

We kick back once a year and invite a huge crowd (150+) to a big bash at our gi-normous back yard in Minnetonka. We love making new friends, and, if you do too, hey, the more the merrier! We've met a lot of great MeetUp and MeetIn folks this year, we have become social with quite a few others since then, so, hopefully we'll just keep upping the ante!


The theme for this year is... FIRE GODS Rule!
Yes, there's no denying it, we Aries ARE Masters of the Universe... Cope! (Trust us, life will be easier for you mere mortals when you learn we're always right.) So, sacrifice your dignity to the volcanic mountain! (Yeah, I know, there's no erupting islands in any of our MN lakes, but...) Show up in your black & red, licking flames, or hula skirts... whatever works!


For a snapshot of what to expect from this crazy mix-matched cross-bred gaggle of eclectic, rowdy misguided folks who call themselves our friends...

LOTS of us are:
* Intellectual
* Liberal-ish
* Geeky-lite
* NOT for the Faint-of-Heart or Socially REPRESSED
* Tasty

At least a few of us are:
* Gypsies & tramps (the thieves have to stay home...
they have to get up early for a court date in the morning)
* Bawdy, obnoxious, & generally downright crude, BUT...
...we CLEAN UP good in public AND, we'll play NICE...
...MOST of the night
* Of Sound mind & judgment


and ONE or TWO of us are:
* nerds
* Out to get you
* Likely to test the theory of gravity at some point in the event
* Being auctioned off to the highest bidder
* T - R - O - U - B - L - E


Some things there will be at the party:
* Clever banter
* Tall tales
* Silly games
* Fire spinning
* Contact Juggling
* Slightly Drunk Magic
* Really bad jokes, mind-numbing puns,
& generally sad humor all around, not to mention dark & twisted wit
* Pink Elephants on Parade
* LOTS & LOTS
(I mean, GOBS--LOADS--HEAPS of SHAMELESS flirting)
...perhaps OTHER inane antics.......??? Ya just never know!!!
(And, oh, btw... Watch out for the Manic Vampyre....
...yes, he DOES Bite!)

And, of course,
Extra points to you if you can provide any of the following:
* Belly dancing (Keeping fingers crossed...
...power of positive thinking!!!)
* Drum jam & dijeridu, acoustic guitar & tambourines,
Music Jamboree Galore! (Hopefully this works out better this time... ...last year we had TWELVE drummers, and only ONE drum!)
* Plenty of stuff to intoxi-*hic!, inebri-*hic!, oh, you know... imbibe


Okay, so, here's the Low-Down:

Kid Free:
This is not a singles only event, but, due to mucho alcohol,
ALL ATTENDEES MUST be of LEGAL AGE.

Fresh Air Atmosphere:
If you smoke, we prefer it kept outside, though, please...
NO ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES.

Furred & Feathered Friends:
Additionally, if you happen to have allergies or phobias, please be aware that there are two large dogs who will be coming & going in & out, and there are cats who live with us, though they will remain indoors. We also have large tropical birds. They are friendly with people, but will be rather over-stimulated with all the coming & going, so it would be better for them not to be held by anyone who doesn't know them.

What to bring:
As we're both born & raised in the South, we can relate to the social conditioning that you can't enter a home empty-handed, so, feel free to bring something to share. (Items listed are some suggestions if you need help coming up with ideas, but certainly not requirements.)
* Any specialty alcohol you can't live without
(His preference is Killian's, mine is Mike's Hard Berry or
Mike's Hard Apple/Lime... ya know, girlie fruity stuff)
* Meat & Veggies of your choice to grill
* Chips & Salsa
* Fruits & Cream Cheese Dip
* Veggies & Dressing
* Cheese & Sausage & Crackers
* Something to Sit on
* ICE
* Examples of your talent -
--Fire Poi, Musical Instruments- Guitar/Dijeridu/Drum, etc.


Thanks again, and, look forward to seeing you there!
--Mick (aka KarmaSoup) & Gypsy
