The party is less than 24 hours away! The address is posted above. Big props to all the folks who worked to get the space ready, it is going to be KILLER!

Miscellaneous items:
*If you have a favorite drink mixer, please bring; we'll have a few basic things.
*The owner of the venue would like us to remind you that there is no smoking inside the building and no drinking outside the building. Thank you for complying.
*We're still accepting donations to cover the costs of drinks and getting the space ready. Your lovely door people will be happy to accept them as you come in.

Sigh. Part of me really wants to come, since it's not likely I'll be doing anything else tomorrow night; the other part of me is mortified at the idea of going to a place I've never been with a bunch of people I've never met.

Nothing against any of you guys/gals, of course.

We'll only be strangers for the first 5 seconds :D

I'm going to Costco tomorrow for cups and other such things. Does anyone have any special requests about designs they want on their dixie cups? Barbies? Tonka Trucks?

Oo oo oo! My Little Pony!

I'll be part of Team Costco as well, though I'll be showing up later at the meetup. I propose Dora the Explorer. I don't know why, but anytime party themes are involved I want to say go with Dora. We can get Diego for the dudes too.

Oh, wait, vrakatar already got cups. We'll have to think of something else.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 9:23 PM on July 17, 2009

Get a few more, our count keeps going up. Get some small paper plates and napkins as well, unless we talked about that already. I just got in from working on the space and i am a bit punchy.

There will be cupcakes but not red velvet.

Unfortunately, it turns out that my wife is on call all night and I have to watch our 2 year old, so I probably won't be able to make it tonight. Have fun everyone!

gonadostat and I will be there at some point this evening, thus moving from the "maybe" list to the "yes" list. Will try to find some appropriate party favors along the way.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but how will y'all know us, and that we're, y'know, Official MeFites™? Or does it matter?

Is there an apartment number we should know about?

hoping that the party will still be going into the night - I will be working until midnight, then i'll be heading in to join you. Will come with ice and some beers for the late night folks. And some disco on a jumpdrive (sorry I couldn't offer my dj services earlier). Excited to party with you all!

Secret Handshake. :-)

(Yeah, I don't know it either.)

I'll bring some bags of ice and some booze or other as well. See you there.

Whoooo-Ow that hurt-ooo!

also another formal apology for not being free when I said I was. Perils of freelance.

I'll be heading over after an opening for a show I'm in at Giant Robot. What's good to bring around 9:00-ish? Ice?
posted by stagewhisper at 11:55 AM on July 18, 2009

Ice. Bring ice.

No apartment number needed- you'll see where to go for the party from the front door.

erin_trying and I will be bringing some napkins, tumblers, some bottles of wine, but no cookies thanks to broken stove. The goods are leftovers from our recent nuptials.

Hmmmmmmm...I will bring ice just in case.
posted by unknowncommand at 4:17 PM on July 18, 2009

Ice! Lots of ice! There's lot of booze.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 5:41 PM on July 18, 2009

More ice on the way.

we need skype handles for other meetups, durnit
posted by Busithoth at 7:27 PM on July 18, 2009

And while the ice situation has been handled we desperately need more hard liquor. You pansies...

(Hugs and drugs. Find me.)
