Novilhos Brazilian Steak House

To purchase the reservation for this event, visit the web site at: https://www.tiesandtails.club/upcoming-events/ties-and-tails-club-presents-trick-or-meat-2019-at-novilhos-65070797507/ ----- Ties and Tails cordially invites you to our second annual Trick or Meat event! This year, dinner is at Novilhos, in Bellevue, on October 19th, 2019, at 6pm. Novilhos is an all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue restaurant serving fine cuts of meat as well as a diverse fresh market bar featuring both hot and cold side dishes. Novilhos has three dining options, Rodizio Dinner with Market Bar ($59), Market Bar Only ($33), and Kids Dinner ($29). There is a mandatory 20% tip and 10% tax. Drinks, appetizers, and desserts are extra. Diners are responsible for their own bills. Novilhos requests a deposit for large groups, so we are asking for a $10 reservation fee. Novilhos has assured us that they can credit that to each diner’s final bill. This fee is refundable until September 18th. Art: Once again, we will be offering double-sided art laminates from Obelys Art with name badges! This year we’re trying something different and separating the art from the event. You can order art as a package with with your dinner reservation, or as a stand-alone item. Art must be ordered before September 15th. Parking/Transportation: Novilhos is located in the Factoria Mall. There is plenty of free parking and busses. Dress Code and Suiting: Masks and tails and costumes are apropriate, but probably not full fursuits. Use common sense. This is a family-friendly fine dining restaurant and you’re going to want to enjoy your dinner. Keep any gear PG and please wear business casual clothing (button-downs, slacks, dresses, pantsuits, and the like).

Ties & Tails: Weekly Wing Dome Meetup (18+)

The Wing Dome

Presenting the Kirkland Furry Meetup! We're an 18+ weekly gathering of furries in downtown Kirkland. Our home base is Wing Dome, on Tuesdays, with occasional excursions to other dining establishments. Everyfur is responsible for their own bill. Attendees must be at least 18, or accompanied by a parent or guardian. Contact: If you need to contact the host, please do so on Telegram, as Meetup messages take upwards of a day to hit our inboxes. Twitter - @TiesAndTails Telegram - https://t.me/TiesAndTails (Note: This is a Telegram waiting room. We've had a lot of replicants trying to sneak in, spam, and steal data. See the pinned message in that Telegram group for directions on how to enter the main chat.) Parking/Transportation: Wing Dome has a limited number of parking spots, but the transportation center is across the street and the library has tons of free parking. Suiting/Masks/Tails: While Wing Dome doesn't mind, we encourage you to use common sense. This is a family-friendly public sports bar - with lots of messy, sticky sauces. So keep the gear PG and barbecue sauce safe.

When Furballs Strike 36 - Mario & Zelda Universe!

Kenmore Lanes

Our Fall furbowl WFS 36 has been booked for Saturday, October 26! And since many of you have been asking for it... the theme will be "Mario & Zelda Universe!" For the last 30+ years the Mario and Zelda franchises have been one of the most recognizable and popular, spanning across generations of gamers! Let's celebrate the legacy of these classic Nintendo icons and have fun dressing up and accessorize as your favorite character from the world of Mario and Legend of Zelda! There will be A LOT of Mario-themed prizes in the prize raffle including a giant framed SMB3 Raccoon Mario poster and many plushes! Supersponsor gift this time is a "Bob-omb" plush! They measure 10" from the base to the tip of the fuse. These will be available for the first 25 Pre-reg'd Supersponsors. We will also have Furlife rectangular buttons and the WFS/FurLife magnets available as an alternate gift, or if we run out of Bob-ombs. If you pre-reg, there will be a separate, much faster-moving line for pre-reg where you check in and pick up your raffle tickets. You may buy extra tickets at that time as well. Pre-Reg closes at NOON on October 25th (day before WFS). IMPORTANT: If you would like to bowl in a group, please make sure ALL members pre-reg, or have someone pay for all the spots so they are saved. This prevents confusion and rearranging bowlers later on! NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS We will be trying something new at WFS 36, we will be doing the group photo AT THE BEGINNING before the lanes turn on for bowling, around 2pm! This way the bowling isn't interrupted and our fursuiters don't have to stay in suit for a long time waiting for the photo. I think this will be a positive change and if people like it, we will keep it that way! I am happy to announce we will have official badged volunteer/staff at WFS. If anyone has an issue at the meet please find any of our staff members wandering the lanes during bowling and they will help you, or find someone that can. You can always talk to the friendly and helpful Kenmore Lanes staff as well. PRICING Each registration comes with 2 games of bowling and shoe rental plus raffle tickets. If you would like to pre-reg (highly recommended), send your payment via Paypal to: [masked] (easy link: http://paypal.me/kijani) using the "family/friends" option, and please include your FurLife username or what name you would like to appear on the screen while bowling. $10 - Bowling, shoe rental, 1 raffle ticket $13 Special - Bowling, shoe rental, 5 raffle tickets, 1 FurLife sticker decal $20 "SuperSponsor" - Bowling, shoe rental, 15 raffle tickets, 1 FurLife sticker decal, extra raffle ticket to win special prizes. All pre-registered SuperSponsors get a Bob-omb plush OR FurLife logo item as described above. Extra raffle tickets can be purchased during registration for $1 each, or 5 for $4. For on-site registration, Cash is preferred, but we are now able to take cards through a secure payment system (.50 fee per reg) at the reg desk! Yaay! SCHEDULE OF EVENTS The party room should be open by 11:30, we will start on-site registration around 12:30. I (Kijani) will be there handling check-in with Hubcap (Pre-reg). When you pay your bowling fee I will give you a lane assignment – if you want to be on a lane with somebody please check in together, as we cannot save lane spots that are unpaid. We will be doing 5 bowlers per lane. If you need bowling shoes go to the front desk and tell the attendant you're with the FurLife group. The Fursuit Group Photo will begin staging at 2pm. If you wish to be in the photo. you must be in your costume at that time, we cannot hold up the photo for latecomers! Please remember to spread out side-to-side as much as possible, since the photo is a panoramic there is no limit to how wide it can be. Bowling will begin as soon as the photo is over, after everyone has checked in and the names are put into the computer screens. Bowling ends at 4:15pm, then we will gather in the party room for the prize raffle, do a "last call" for raffle ticket sales and then give lots of awesome stuff away! Many of our attendees also go to the group dinner, which is now at the Super China Buffet in Shoreline. We have reserved tables in the party room (on the left side of the restaurant up a small ramp) and the dinner is scheduled for 5:45pm (more details below). And did you know When Furballs Strike has a home on the web including updates, a history of the meet and lots of fun photos? Check it out at http://www.whenfurballsstrike.net ! PRIZE RAFFLE As always there will be a TON of amazing prizes for attendees to take home in our prize raffle which takes place after bowling ends (around 4:30). Mostly animal or furry-related, as well as some collectibles, nice things for your home and some Mario-themed items. Our main raffle is full, but we could always use "last chance" raffle prizes that anyone would enjoy like plushes, gift cards, etc. If you donate you'll get 3 free tickets per item (please clear the prize with me before bringing it). For those new to the prize raffle, each ticket comes in a pair, simply separate each ticket and drop ONE of the two matching numbered tickets into the bag labeled with the prize you want to win. It's that easy! FOOD Kenmore Lanes has a full restaurant and bar for us to order from at our leisure. Please do not bring in any outside food or drink as this is against Kenmore's house policies. Things like bottled water/sport drinks kept in the party room for our fursuiters is fine and encouraged. DJ DRUZY TO RETURN DJ Druzy and Kitt Fox will be returning to spin at WFS 36 with some Mario/Zelda themed tracks to play in their set! AFTERWARDS Just like previous WFS meets, I will be giving out fun awards for high game in “classic” and “fursuit” divisions. We will also be running our prize raffle again with lots of fantastic gifts to give away for bowling with us at WFS! Additional tickets will be sold just prior to the raffle. We should be finishing up around 5:30pm. Kenmore has been a great host for us in the past and was very kind in giving us this great deal, so please help clean up after yourselves. Let's try leave the place looking cleaner than when we came in! Please RSVP as soon as you are reasonably sure you can attend so I can get a more accurate number of bowlers reported to Kenmore Lanes management. Thanks so much and see everyone at WFS 36!
