January meetup

For the January meetup, A Cup of Tea will have their Christmas decorations up through all of January, so what weekend works best for you?

So far, it looks like January 6th is the preferred date.

October meetup

Location: Nocturna Lounge, Waterfront Plaza, 500 Ala Moana Blvd, Ste 5D, Honolulu, HI 96813
Date: Sunday, Oct 28, 2012
Time: 7:00 - 10:00 PM

Theme is Alice and the Pirates.

We're allowed to bring in food, so we'll be doing potluck.

We have a choice between 2 rooms.

Suite #3 is our medium-sized room (15-18 capacity) and is our designated "Rock Band Room" with over 1500 songs available to play from.

Suite #4 is our largest room (20-24 capacity) and would be best for Karaoke and Kinect games like Dance Central. Rock Band is also available in Suite #4, but with only around 500 of the more popular songs.

October meetup

Last October, a few of us won a Rock Band tournament at Art After Dark and the prize was a Nocturna Lounge party...honestly, I'm not sure what that means. xD I assume a free room rental? I'll call to find out more details, but I'd like to get a date worked out first.

I know Oct 20-21 is out. I'm shooting for the last weekend in Oct 27-28 or if need be the first weekend in Nov 3-4. Oct 13-14 is an option, but it's kind of short notice.

Theme is Alice and the Pirates, because our band name was Alice and the Pirates. :) It doesn't mean you need to wear the brand. You can go with an Alice theme or a pirates theme if you prefer.

Q-Pot Meet and Greet

Designer Wakamatsu Tadaaki will be coming to Hawaii! Come down to the Ala Moana Q-pot. store for an opportunity that is too sweet to miss!! Date: Sunday, July 29, 2012. Time: 1:30~3:00pm. Location: Q-Pot store Ala Moan Center

August meetup

For the August meetup, we're going to Aulani, the Disney resort at Ko Olina. What dates work or don't work for you?

Because it's summer, it's probably better if we go in the morning (10ish) or late afternoon (4ish). My vote is for the morning since traffic should be lighter. Because it's a pretty far drive for many of us, we'll definitely try to carpool.

Food is a little pricey there, so it's bring your own food/drinks or if you don't mind paying Disney prices, there are some quick service options. There's also a few places nearby that a short walk away off property.

Let's give the tropical theme a try. As always, interpret as you wish. :)

July meetup update

Date: Saturday, July 28, 2012
Time: 4:00 - 7:00 PM

Location: Karaoke at GS Studio (Waikiki)

If you can, the theme will be "winter" and feel free to interpret it as you wish. I'd also like to try the gift exchange again this year if everyone is willing. The limit would be $5. Home made is okay and edibles are okay, but if you do the latter, please don't cover up your gift. Stick a bow on the packaging instead. :)

Facebook community

I created a Facebook community a long time ago to mirror this one, but people weren't really active on fb at the time. But now it seems like it's the other way around and everyone is on fb rather than lj. ^^;

I'm not saying to move the comm from lj to fb, but that I'll be crossposting meetup info on both, for the sake of those that don't really log into lj anymore. I don't want to be presumptuous and just add people to the group without your okay, so here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/groups/25171856678/

The group is currently set to open, but I can make it private if it's preferred.
