Saint Patrick's House Party

  • Mar 16, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Near Stuart's Place Actual Address revealed later

I am hosting a Saint Patrick's House Party with another meetup group and was not getting enough responses through them so I am opening up 13 spots through this group.

I will prepare appetizers plenty of corned beef, cabbage and potatoes as well as a desert and a couple of soda options, some green beers and wines and coffee (Irish) and tea. There will be a charge of something between $5 - $10 which will be determined after I calculate the actual cost and number of guests.

There will be some options about what to do activity wise that can include American idol karaoke, rock band, board games and poker (if you have a great Wii game for groups let me know). We will have to kind of make a group decision at the time.

The location will be shared with attendees but is in santa clara. If you RSVP yes remember that I will be buying food based on your RSVP so please show up and do not cancel last minute. Times for RSVP ends 2 days before event.

    Stuart, Although I was not able to make it to this event, I wanted to say THANK YOU for making this event happen and to everyone who supported Stuart w/ the payments - well done!

    For those who canceled their reservations at the very last moment, the no shows, and to those who attended and did not pay -- I hope you can reflect on your actions, put yourself in Stuart's shoes and try to understand his unfortunate experience. It would be appreciated if you can reach out to me or directly to Stuart this week to pay for your portion of the RSVP.

    Thanks!

    I found a pair of White Foster Grant sunglasses. They as well as Howards glasses are hanging on my mailbox. Let me know if you will swing by to pick them up.

    Great dinner. Thanks for your generous hospitality.
    Someday I'll overcome my fear of karaoke.

    I forgot to thank Howard for all his help as well as the others when we first started with moving furniture around and packing coolers etc. Thanks so much.

    Kudos to you Stuart for an awesome party. I had a great time and the food was excellent. Kudos also to the people who came and did pay their share. For the ones who pitched in a little extra you guys are so Kewl.

  • Stuart B.

    Other than getting stuck with over $100 excess cost to me since at least 10 people that RSVP'd did not show up it was a pretty good time. The people that did show were allot of fun.

    I think I am going to have to figure out how to make those that did not come pay for missing since I bought food and beverages for you which I explained several times very clearly in the comments on this event. If you won't pay I will ask the main organizers of this group to either have you ejected from the group or something else I suppose.

    • Katherine

      Thank you for hosting. Weird thing was that I noticed quite a few people who showed up and didn't pay.

      I did mention it to my fellow Main Organizers. Thanks for setting-up this Awesome Saint Patrick's Party AND for welcoming all of us into your nice home!!! We shall take care of this matter. There will definitely be A LOT of changes. Word gets around so Be Nice. Flaking, lying AND not taking your RSVP seriously, turns off people AND they will definitely avoid hanging-out with you.

    Stuart, thanks for the great time and great food you bought and prepared yourself!!! and sorry that you had to pay all the cash out of your pocket for the food and drinks for those that didn't show up... Louie

  • Stuart B.

    I only got a few responses regarding your beverages of choice.
    Please let me know if you did not receive the address information email that I sent directly to everyone a couple days ago with the request for what type of beverages you wanted.
    Regarding entertainment, we will have Poker going on in one room, Rock Band which will have to satisfy the people that are looking for Karaoke as there is singing in Rock Band as well only your limited to Rock choices. I will also have a tale setup in the same room as rock band with a few board games (including trivial pursuit}. I'm looking forward to it. Eating will likely start between 6:30 and 7. Please bring small change ie, a 10 a 5 and a few ones so I won't have to make too much change. Remember, poker is a $10 initial buy in.
    I won't have the per person price until Sunday. It should definitely be between $5 and $10 including all food and beverages. Let me know your beverages by responding to that email.

    I decided to add in an additional activity. I will setup a blackjack table with 50 cent max bets. So we will have a Poker table with $20 buy in, Blackjack 50 cent max, Rock Band and a table or we could break it into 2 tables for board games.

    Hi Stuart and Phoenix, so I just learned we made it from the waiting list (we = a couple recently relocated to the Bay Area from Seattle area; I was the one who signed up as '+1' as a member of Phoenix's foodie meetup). Two quick requests:

    1) Can you please email me the exact address?

    2) Drinks-wise, can you have cider (as in, Apple Orchard or similar)? As for me, any strong bear (IPA, other types of ales, and/or porters, stouts) will do. And yes, I will have my woman do the driving, so I likely will have >3 beers :-)

    As for food, we'll be fine w/ whatever you prepare/other people prefer :-)

    We will have cash ready for whatever it turns out to be per-person, per Stuart's earlier information.

    The forecast for next weekend is almost 80 degrees and sunny. The temperature does drop fairly quick though once the sun is gone. If some don't mind hanging outside, I could open up the RSVP's to more people. Thoughts? Particularly those of you on the waitlist.

    March 9, 2014

    • Stuart B.

      I did open for these members and not the other group.

      Just Don't "Set your controls for the heart of the Sun". It might get quite warm.

  • Stuart B.

    It looks like we are getting about 50/50 on poker and either karaoke or rock band. Rock band can work for you Karaokeans. We will setup a group of people playing poker and another playing Rock Band. Also I have a hot tub so if you want to bring a suit and jump in, you are welcome to. I may go ahead and open up a few more spots to accommodate the waitlist, but I need some chairs. If someone that is coming has maybe 4 - 6 folding chairs, I have another table I could setup for eating. Contact me directly if you have chairs.
