FREE Union Jack's Halloween Party. :) PETER H. is hosting in place of me now.

(Note: Peter H. is now hosting this event, as I don't feel well)

Hi guys,

This looks fun!! On the Union Jack's website it says: "Union Jack's throws the largest and most extravagant Halloween costume party every year.  It is so big that we need 2 nights - Thurs., Oct. 31 AND Fri., Nov. 1st!!  Our massive costume contest includes over $1,000 in cash and prizes, including a Grand prize of a Free Caribbean Vacation (flight & hotel)!  Prizes for 'Most Original', 'Funniest' and 'Sexiest' costumes!" Now how cool is that??

They don't know for sure if it will be packed on Friday, but they expect it to be. It's the 1st time they've extended this to two nights. . It's good to wear a costume, but you won't be turned away if you don't. :) You can even just draw something on your face. :) Entrance is FREE!

They say WE should go AS EARLY as we can, in case  IT WILL BE PACKED (it can get very loud, and with so many people by 9:30, SO, Peter  will be there already at 6:00 so that you can hang out, talk, and maybe eat something first (If you come later, you can text Peter and let him know)!! You will meet there, but if people want me to meet Peter at the metro and walk together, let us know so that we can arrange that.

WALKING directions from the Bethesda Metro (red line):

After exiting the metro with your farecard, go up the 2 sets of escalators. The 1st escalator is really long, the 2nd one is short and you are then outside. :) After exiting to the outside from the escalators, There is a water fountain on your left.

Walk straight in front of you towards the street, and to the Bethesda sign that is in front of you on the right. Cross this street (Old Georgetown road) at the pedestrian crossing there. After crossing it just take a left on the side walk. You will be walking left on this street, Old Georgetown (187 N). The REASON I have you crossing the street before taking the left is because eventually you will be taking a right on St. Elmo Ave., and this way you are standing where you will need to be to make the right. It's just easier to cross it already.

You will pass 2 traffic lights before you need to turn right at the St. Elmo Ave. traffic light. The 1st traffic light you will pass it at Commerce Lane/Edgemoor Lane  (it is Commerce on the right, and Edgemoor on the left of that same street), and THEN you cross the traffic light Woodmont Avenue, and then a small road called Fairmont, before finally turning right onto St. Elmo. Ave. There will be a Jewelery Exchange Store and an Old Georgetown Grille restaurant on your right, right before making that right turn.

Keep walking straight on St. Elmo Ave., and Union Jack's will be soon on your left, next to Franz Sebastian Salon to its left, and Rock Bottom to its right. Union Jack's is not far from the intersection with Norfolk, which will be not far in front of you, passed where you are...

LOCATIONS & COSTS OF the TWO MAIN PARKING GARAGES:

1) There's a garage with meters located on St. Elmo Ave., not far from Union Jack’s. It is on Cordell Ave. on the other side of it, and it is called the Cordell-St. Elmo Garage. It costs 80 cents per hour & you don't have to pay past 10 PM. It says it takes nickels/dimes/quarters, but I'd bring lots of quarters, just in case.

2) There's a ticketed garage on Old Georgetown Ave. on one side of it, and Woodmont Avenue on the other side of it. I am pretty sure it's called the Montgomery County Woodmont Corner Garage. If you are on the Old Georgetown Road side, it is across from a Shell Station. I was told it costs 80 cents per hour, till 11 PM, and that if you leave after 12 am then you pay nothing for the whole time (as the bar that goes down will be up)!!

    Thank you to Peter, for verifying the attendance for me, so that I could put it up correctly. :) I needed the help. Thanks again also for hosting so that this meetup could still take place. :)

    It was nice to meet you guys yesterday. We had a lot of fun. And Peter was amazing as the host.... Hope you will feel better soon Noonie.

      Thank you, Assetou. I'm so glad you had fun. Yes, I wanted to make it easy for Peter so that's why I set it all up by writing all the directions, etc. I'm so glad that the bar wasn't so busy, so that you could all talk and stay together easily as well. I'm glad Peter did a good job and we can meet at another meetup. See you later and have a good weekend, Noonie

    I think I edited the attendance wrong. sorry! feel free to tell me if I took anyone off who was there..thanks...My fever is keeping me awake but I should go back to sleep. You know how it is when you're sick and can't always sleep...I'm so glad the meetup worked out. I was concerned I was having you meet up too early, but I heard that on Halloween it was so, so noisy and packed that people couldn't hear each other...So, I wanted to make sure you could chill and hear each other. :) I'm glad you had fun and thanks again Peter for hosting...

    It was fun.

    Glad you guys had fun and I thank Peter for hosting. I'm glad that metro people were able to walk with him from the metro. I know that most organizers just have you meet at the bar, which is a good idea. But I had Peter meet members also at the metro, BECAUSE I know it can be hard to walk somewhere yourself for the first time (especially with it being an international group. :))

      Thanks, Blondine. yeah, I feel really sick. :( I hope you have fun. John is there already. I hope to hang out with you another time...

    Peter's phone is working now again. He isn't at the bar yet, as Oscar hasn't seen him yet...You can still text/call him when you can. Thanks

    November 1, 2013

    • Assetou

      Ok I will. Thanks Noonie. Hope we meet next time :-)

      November 1, 2013

    • Noonie

      Sounds great, Assetou. Let me know how it is. I think Oscar was finally able to find Peter. So you can just text him when you arrive. If you aren't able to find him, you can text me and let me know:[masked] 5875. I'll see if I can help from home...:)

      November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi Assetou! Sure you can still go! That's so nice of you to still check to make sure! :) Peter's number is:[masked] 9092. He is hosting in place of me, since I'm sick.

    November 1, 2013

  • Assetou

    Hello, I will be joining to join around 8:30. Was not sure I could that s why did not rsvp earlier. Noonie let me know if I can still meet the group. Thanks

    I'll finish to work after 9.00... meh... so I'll try to make it!

    November 1, 2013

    • Noonie

      Wow Daniela, you will be working very late tonight...After 9/930 it will likely be very packed (full of people). It might be harder to find the group that late. If you see that you can make it, I would text Peter before you go, to see if you can arrange meeting him and the others that late. Thank you for your update. We appreciate it. If you can't make it due to work, we can always meet up another time to go dancing and celebrate another time, etc.

      Hey I also plan on being there arouns that time! (:

      November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thank U Oscar & Naveen for your updates. I'll text Peter what you said. He's at the metro now. He arrived on time. :)

    November 1, 2013

  • oscar

    Hi there... Im gonna try to came in there (the bar) at 6 pm. So Im gonna text you or Peter until then...

    1 · November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    The update about meeting is that Jenna and her friend will arrive at 8 PM to the bar (she said she will definitely wear a costume). :) MH (who also told me that he'll have a costume) will meet Peter at the metro and so will Cassandra. They will leave the Bethesda metro (by the place I told you, by the waterfalls after you exit the metro from the 2 escalators). And they will leave no later than 5:45 (Peter will wait from 5:20-545). And they will walk to the place together. Daniela might not come as she works till 9, but she will definitely try to make it. If anyone else has an update about when they will arrive, or if they will be at the metro, please share. Thanks. :) I'm so jealous since I can't go. :(

  • Noonie

    Peter won't have access to the computer after the meetup begins. So if you post a comment here after the meetup starts, he won't be able to see it. Therefore, the best way to reach him after 6 is by texting. If you have any trouble you can always text me to see where he is, but I would FIRST try him as I might be sleeping when you try me (as I am sick. If I am awake when you text me then I would love to help you out.). My number is:[masked]-5875. Peter's again is:[masked] 9092. Contact him first though. As he's the host. Have a great time!

    November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    They will have "MASSIVE costume contests"! At least I know they did that last night! It's the first time they are having this for two nights, but I'm assuming that for tonight they will also have the costume contests...You guys are meeting at 6 PM, SO that it won't be AS FULL at that time, and you can have conversations...IF it will be as full as it was last night, then at like 9:30 it will already start to get packed, with a A LOT of people....They say that the costume prizes are for 1,000 in cash and prizes, and the GRAND prize is a FREE vacation!!..
    If you want to wear a costume but don't have time to go to Party City, or any of the other costume places, maybe you can just wear a funny hat, or funny glasses, or put some makeup on?? IF you don't have a costume, you can still go!! :) Entrance is FREE. :) If you are hungry when you meet at 6, then you can also order food, along with your drinks..

    November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    (He'll wait from 5:20-545). :)

    November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi guys! So far, MH and Cassandra said that they can meet Peter at the metro (so that they can walk together with him). So that is THREE people there so far...If you will also be meeting Peter, please let us know..Peter will leave NO LATER than 5:45 PM. He'll be standing by the waterfalls that you see AFTER you go up the TWO sets of escalators upon exiting Bethesda Metro. Please take the walking directions with you, just in case...It's easy to follow them for if you walk by yourself...As for people meeting at the bar, everyone has Peter's number by now. He also posted it in the comment section. It's:[masked]

    change of plans.. I'm going away for the weekend to Asheville NC for some hiking zip lining and cozy cabin time. I'm gonna have to miss this one but I go to Union Jacks on Mondays for karaoke, they always have a fun crowd :) You guys have fun!

    1 · October 31, 2013

    • Noonie

      Yeah, I saw that they have Karaoke there, and was planning on posting that for another meetup down the line. Wow, you are going to have so much fun zip lining, etc. You always do fun things!

      November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi Cassandra and everyone...I am even sicker today, so I really can't go. :( I'm so glad that you are still going! About meeting, yes the meeting time is for 6 PM, right outside the bar. I sent out walking directions from the metro, as well as Parking info. It is also posted on the write-up for this meetup. Peter can meet people at the metro beforehand (like he can wait from 5:20 till 5:45, and walk with people, IF people say that they want to meet at the metro and walk with him. So far, no one said that they want to do so.). I'll send out an email to make sure no one wants to..Thanks, and Happy Halloween!!

    November 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Is there anyone who wants to meet the others at the metro, so that you can have someone to walk with there? Please let us know (by posting a comment), so that Peter can know to wait for you there. If no one says that they will be at the metro (between 5:20 and 5:45ish), then Peter would just assume to meet you at the bar...Today I feel even sicker, so I definitely am not going, but we are lucky that Peter will take over to host this in place of me.

    DON'T forget a VALID ID (one that says that you are 21 or older, and preferrably a driver's license). If you don't have a Driver's License, then a passport or another valid ID that has worked for you for bars is good.

    It's ok HeyJi, I understand. I am still feeling sick too. :( I hope you feel better soon! Peter H. is hosting this event (even though I did all the planning, I can't go if I'm feeling sick). I'm glad someone volunteered to host...

    sorry guys, I have to enjoy later. I really want to go there but I got a flu...ㅜㅜ Noonie, I hope so see you soon

    1 · October 30, 2013

  • Noonie

    Actually, I just sent out the walking directions to all active members, in case more will sign up later...Soon, I will also send out the email about parking...

    1 · October 30, 2013

  • Noonie

    Ok guys! I went there today and I will be emailing those listed going walking directions from the metro, as well as parking info. :) I still have my headache, but I have found a host who has also been there with us, so he knows where it is and it will be fun.

    October 30, 2013

  • Noonie

    Update: I think we found a host!! This means that this meetup can still go on, even if I don't feel well by Friday! I can still visit the place and post up some details after visiting it tonight...That way,I can make it easier for the host...Thanks

    October 30, 2013

  • Noonie

    Oscar, I was planning to go visit the place after work today to get all the details. The group knows that I make sure to be very thorough and also email out all details. So, I will do that soon (by tonight), after I visit the place. However, since I am not feeling well there is a slight possibility that I won't be able to host this event. Therefore, I am looking for someone else to host it in place of me! This means that I would no longer be in charge of it. If I still don't feel well by Friday and we still don't have a host, then I can possibly still have the meetup up without it being led by a host (it would be "member-led"), and members would still be going. They could even contact each other about joining up by writing each other greetings, etc. I will let you guys know by tonight if I can go or not. I just have had a cluster of really bad headaches...I will do my best to stay the host of this event...I'll get back to you tonight. Thank you!

    October 30, 2013

  • oscar

    Hi there... I´m very interested and I´d like to go to this event but I want to know about parking availability and how to meet you all up? I mean, the entire dynamic and schedule... if possible.

    1 · October 29, 2013

  • Noonie

    Prutha, what's so interesting? That I feel sick. Oh, ok. I am more looking to see if someone wants to host in case I don't feel better by Friday. I'll do what I can to feel better though by then. I should be ok by then. Thanks guys.

    October 29, 2013

  • Mr. P

    Interesting... :)

    October 29, 2013

  • Noonie

    Weird Question!! I've had a headache since Sunday. I am not sure why it hasn't gone away. I should be fine by Friday. If I feel better already by tomorrow, then for sure all is good and I will host this event as scheduled. However, is there anyone ELSE who wants to host this event, just in case I still feel sick by tomorrow? Tomorrow I will see how I feel. If I feel better, then I will keep me as host...I will let you guys know by tomorrow night. It's likely that I will feel fine and be able to host...Just giving you the heads up...Let me know if anyone wants to host it just in case..Thanks!
