Many members haven't had a Thanksgiving dinner, and here's a chance to get together for one of the oldest of American holidays. Celebration Time!!
We will meet at FM Karaoke, and we will bring in our own eats: turkey, tofu, chicken, side dishes, etc.
So we can be social and get to know each other, we will not have Karaoke the entire time. We have the room for 3 hours for $90 (total cost) due to the organizer working out a deal (see below). Additional hours are $60 per hour or maybe a little less.
what you need to do:
- Bring Something: write a comment of what you will bring. If you bring something, it is $7 to cover the room costs & shared materials (cups, plates, some main & side dishes, etc.). If you don't bring something, it is $200 at the door. Or something like that. Bring something, bake something, make something, or get a friend to help you find something! . You can even order a dish from the FM Karaoke menu (pdf) as your contribution. The original Thanksgiving was about sharting something to celebrate with a group.
- Visit their Facebook page and if you like, the "like" it.
- Volunteers to help set up are welcome to come at 5:30pm. (Please write in comments if you are coming early so we have an idea of how many).
- Singers should practice their sippal bun - favorite song to sing.
We estimate 25-35 people at this point. (Worried the room is not large enough? It can fit over 30, and they have more rooms available.)
The location is across the street from Shilla Bakery (Rockville)... which has stuff you can bring (hint hint)... and also there is a Safeway across the street, and an asian market (which seems to focus on Thai/Vietnamese/Southeast asian food).
More details will be added - if you want to help organize this event, or cook, or can help set up starting around 5:30pm, please add it to your RSVP.
Drinks: the location has a full menu of drinks, including a lot of Korean options (soju, etc.)
Location: FM Karaoke in Rockville, Maryland.
Metro: Rockville, MD - too far to walk, so we will arrange to pick up people who need rides. It's only 5 minutes to drive, so we can make multiple trips (we've done this before) starting around 5:30pm. You will want to walk to the east side exit (to the right after coming down from the tracks) and go to the kiss-n-ride pickup area. If you want to volunteer to pick people up from the metro, please post a comment.
