Mefites at Vidcon/Downtown Disney

Sun June 29 at 8:00 PM, Voodoo Lounge, House of Blues
1530 Disneyland Drive, Anne Geddes Downtown Disney, Anaheim, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I've just registered for VidCon, a convention for online video/Youtube creators and enthusiasts taking place in Anaheim CA from June 26 to 28, and will be there an extra day. It's my first time and I'm wondering if there are any other Mefites going. After some discussion I think the best place will the evening of June 29 at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney, which is accessible free of charge. That said, if you are going to Vidcon, let me know!

I have not been to a meet up for about 10 years, and I live a drive away, so if there will be at least a few confirmations, I'll be there.

I am not going to VidCon, but if there's a meetup happening and divabat's going to be there, I'll drive down to Anaheim. It's only about 25 minutes without traffic.

The Vidcon agenda hasn't been fully settled yet so I don't know what the schedule is, but I will be there an extra day for Disney Day and could probably meet in the evening then (I don't know Anaheim very well).

I am ALL about Downtown Disney. MeFi meetup at Downtown Disney would be awesome (just FYI, downtown Disney doesn't cost anything to wander in - but there are many fun things to acquire if you happen to be spending your dollars).

ooo that could be fun. Any recs for places? Voodoo Lounge, Jazz Kitchen, and Crossroads all sound good.

House of Blues has consistently good food/drinks AFAIC from previous visits. I'm not at all familiar with the Jazz Kitchen, but I'm up for either one.

I'm not going to VidCon, but would be in for a Downtown Disney meetup anyways!

Oof. I may have finally hit the limit of my Carless in LA experiment but if I can figure out a way down to the OC I'll come!

(I no longer live in OC, so I won't be coming, but I stepped in here to see why "Anaheim" got listed as a meet-up place. Thought I'd mention that the Jazz Kitchen has really good food, and an amazing Bloody Mary menu: alcoholic or non-alcoholic, with design-your-own from a list of 20+ ingredients, or pick from a list of already designed mixes. There's also the lobby of the Grand Californian hotel, a re-creation of the lobby of a Yosemite-style grand hotel that you should check out - it's gorgeous. Have fun!)

Room 641-A - where are you?? Perhaps we can arrange carpool.

There is no reason we should not go to Trader Sam's. TIKI BAR, YO.

Sophie1, I'm in Santa Monica. I can get to the Expo line in Culver City, which means I can probably meet you almost anywhere to go down there. Options for getting all the way home late in the evening are more limited so I'll check back once the plans are solidified. Gas or drinks on me!

Cool. If we're doing this thing I'll pick you up Room 641-A.

ApathyGirl - YES to any tiki bar!

So divabat, when are we doing this? I am previously committed on Thursday night the 26th, but any other night is open.

June 29th somewhere in Downtown Disney works best (since I'm already going to be in the vicinity). Jazz Kitchen sounds doable!
posted by divabat at 9:10 AM on May 22, 2014

changed it from Jazz Kitchen to House of Blues since a Yelp review mentioned that trying to get a big bunch of people in the Jazz Kitchen at night would be tricky!
posted by divabat at 9:16 AM on May 22, 2014

Woo freaking hoo. Room 641-A I'm up for coming to Santa Monica on my way down - we'll figure things out closer to the date. Also, I don't drink so I'm perfectly fine with being designated driver.

There's a chance I will be in the area -- hopefully I can make it!
posted by spiderskull at 6:12 PM on May 23, 2014

I might be traveling then, though I really hope not. If I'm around, I'd be game to head down for a meetup. Marking it as a maybe for now.

I'm in Disneyland!

I'm going to get a 945pm fastpass for World of Color, fyi
posted by divabat at 11:01 AM on June 29, 2014

Are we still on for today?
posted by divabat at 5:31 PM on June 29, 2014

Ok, I haven't heard anything from anyone all day, so I'll probably skip out. Sorry! Also my phone battery is dying.
