5th Annual After Holidays White Hippogriff Gift Exchange and Potluck

  • Jan 5, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey LADA Members,

We will be having the 5th annual after holiday's White Hippogriff (just like White Elephant) gift exchange and potluck sure to be tons of magical fun.

Each year, we all receive one gift that has you asking yourself "what was he/she thinking giving me this" or "I cannot believe someone spent their hard earned money for this". Well...here is your chance to exchange it for something that could possibly be even more ridiculous/outrageous! Remember, we are looking for funny gifts!

Please bring your gift (valued at $10) wrapped up for what will be one a most unique gift exchange!

Things to do/bring:

- Bring a White Hippogriff gift valued around $10. Remember, the funnier the better!

- Bring a Harry Potter themed savory main dish to share (no desserts). We will already have HP desserts

- Bring an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink to share with the group

- Come dressed in your Harry Potter pajamas!

- 2013 Jan-Jun dues are “due”. Please bring $5 with you to this event (no exceptions)

Have a Wonderful New Year!

    You folks are cool as hell. Never, in one night, have I had conversations about all of the following: Snowman Rape, Hitler, Return To Oz, Flight of The Navigator, and bathtub crayons. I don't know a lot, but I know that's the mark of a weird good time.

      Yes we are a pretty awesome group. Glad you came. I have never met someone as passionate about Return to Oz.... ;)

    hey All,

    I have a ton of hard liquor left from NYE so if you drink that stuff, just bring your favorite mixer. If you like beer, you are SOL since I dont have that.

    January 3, 2013

  • Christina G.

    Sadly I had a little accident at work and can no longer go. I got one email that said my status was changed to going so I guess I got bumped up from the wait list maybe? If it's not too late please give my spot to someone else. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

  • Sara

    Is there any way that someone could give me a ride? It would save me having to ask my dad for gas money...
