Alayna's Prohibition Party!!

  • Jun 13, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • Alayna's Apartment

Hey everyone!!:)

During my period of illness, I've been hosting small get-togethers for friends, but I miss being able to see the Meetup crew! Therefore, I'd like to try to invite the group to the next shindig, and see what happens!:)

Here are some rules, however:

1) If you want to attend, you must have attended 2 Meetups or know William or myself personally. Unfortunately, in the past, parties with lots of strangers have led to theft, destruction, and even someone getting arrested. We're not into that sort of thing here.

2)If you don't know us, but really want to attend, e-mail me to introduce yourself and assure me that you're a cool person, and just want to show up for harmless fun!:)

3) These are potluck/BYO-Stuff-For-The-Bar parties, and there is always a theme, so please read all the details.

4) I'd love to have everyone show  up, but unfortunately, I live in a 2-bedroom apartment. So, you know, space issues!! My apartment is located in a gated community (where the gate is often broken) in Sandy Springs (yes, I'm OTP!) with plenty of parking (YAY!). I also have a dog, so if you are deathly allergic or hate dogs, please just skip this one. The dog owns the place; I am just allowed to live here. :P

That being said, if you'd like to come to the party, read on. PLEASE READ COMPLETELY! (thanks. )

***********************

You know I love my 1920's parties, celebrating a time when nobody had any money and there were far too many rules, but people threw the best parties! *laughs*

We won't have bathtub gin, but 1920's type attire of any kind is encouraged (but totally optional)! (for those who attended my murder mystery, or Oni's 1920's party last year, you probably already have something floating around.)

To keep things more interesting, the party will have a twist: Because liquor was a high-priced commodity during the 1920's, each guest will be given a certain about of fake money upon entry. This money can be used to buy drinks or other goodies from the bar area. If you run out of "money", additional funds may be acquired by completing a task, playing "Truth Or Dare", or whatever you happen to pull out of the bowl. (don't worry, all tasks will be PG-13, unless you guys start making them up yourselves.) It's kind of like living Monopoly! *laughs* Sound fun? Of course it does!

As always, this is a BYOB/potluck-type party. We will provide some things, as always, but admission to the party will require you to bring a bottle for the bar: whiskey, scotch, vodka, tequila, champagne, some weird liqueur you found at the liquor store that's good for shots. It doesn't have to be expensive, just be creative! If you want to bring food, that's cool, and if you don't, that's equally fine. :)

Also, keep in mind that it might get hot, because it's June and the AC can only do so much...so dress accordingly!:)

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

If you're planning on bringing a significant other, please remember to add them.

    Hey everyone!! Just a reminder that this event is going on...we'd love to have everyone drop by, but it is important to read and follow all the rules. I know the description is long, but the info. is important! Excited for a lovely party!!:) *hugs*

    Well, I guess some people took that personally. :( I didn't intend for it to be personal or unkind...I've just explained in the content of this event that it's not for newbies. You must have attended 2 events prior to this one, because it's at my place. :)

      It says upfront as rule #1 that they must have attended at least 2 meetups, so not sure why anyone would get upset.

      May 28, 2014

    • Alayna-Renee

      I agree....but I had 2 people leave the group when I pointed out Rule #1. :(

      May 28, 2014

  • Alayna-Renee

    Guys, please READ. I would love to have everyone over, but this event is ONLY for people I know personally. If I haven't met you at an event, I'm going to have to remove your RSVP. It is really important to read event descriptions..some events are not open to all members! *hugs*
