Welcoming 2013 - A casual night of games, snacks and cheer

  • Dec 31, 2012 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Registration for this meetup is now closed and all attendees have received the address.

If you're like me, your favourite thing to do on New Year's is a casual get-together with good friends, good snacks and a couple of good games. I thought I'd see if anyone's interested in bringing in 2013 in a similar fashion (and to continue the fun that you had at Amy's the night before).

Come after dinner - anytime after 730pm - bring a midnight snack and something to drink - and a favourite game! I'll send the address to the YES rsvps a few days beforehand.

(If turnout is low, we'll cancel and find another reason to celebrate later in 2013)

Join or login to comment.

    3. Plastic covered basket


    If these are yours, let me know and we can arrange a time for you to come get them.

    Thank you Marcia & Catherine for a fun night, and hosting the event.
    It was a pleasure to meet each and everyone of you, eat great food, and play fun games (Michele, I'm hooked on Taboo! Must have a Taboo party soon). Happy New Year 2013!! Here's to new friends!!

    Hi Marcia, Since there is a pot of rice being served with Al's prawns, I can make butter chicken for those who prefer chicken over prawns, and we have some protein. I can also bring guacamole & Chips. I have that at home and don't have to run out to be brie that I offered to bring. Will that work?

    • Marcia S.

      That would be great

      After Amy's post about sticking to appies, instead of main dishes, I went back to a cheese plate, with grapes, baguette, guacamole & chips. Too late to cook up butter chicken. See you all soon :)

    hello, nice to meet you.
    i will join party tonight,
    im afraid i could not reach there. can i know more detail about adress?

    Hi all! Just a quick reminder about Marcia's for those who have not been there before- we meet in her common room area which is on the ground floor- and is the big glass room behind the reflecting pool (to the left of the front door)- so once Marcia has come to the common room area she will NOT be able to hear her buzzer- so please knock on the door or wave to us in the common room to get our attention! We had lots of questions about this at the October meet up! Also, I don't think we need lots of main dishes since people will have eaten dinner and I have leftovers from last night's meet up that people have left for me to bring for tonight- I have a meat/cheese platter and crackers- and some other cheeses with crackers!

    December 31, 2012

  • Marcia S.

    I'll have it made, Al

    December 31, 2012

  • Al

    If i May suggest....? Perhaps we could all bring a nice potluck dish, even though this is after dinner, we are going to go from about 7pm from our homes to 11pm or even midnight... Which is about 4 to 5 hours without much nutritious food maybe... Perhaps? ~~~ I'll probably cook some Thai prawns with lots of sauce... Can someone volunteer to bring plain rice please....? ~~~ Thank you ~~~ And thanks again Catherine for organizing and Marcia for opening up your place. =(:>~<

    Hi all,
    I've emailed the address to most of you tonight, however I will have to wait until tomorrow to email it to Neli, Lisa Marie, and "T" due to restrictions on this site from permitting me to send many individual emails in one day. Rest assured to those three - you'll be receiving an email from me tomorrow once the restrictions are lifted.

      Hi Catherine, I signed up to group last night. Looking for something fun to do NY's eve. Can anyone drop by? Being NY's don't want to be the only one who doesn't know anyone, but it does sound like fun to meet new people.

      December 28, 2012

    • Cat

      Hi Neli! Meetups are perfect places to show up as a stranger and leave with new friends! There are people coming whom I've never met and am looking forward to meeting them - and you! :)
