Q2 GameHaus meetup
posted March 10, 2017 6:25 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat April 22 at 2:00 PM, GameHaus
1800 S Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Time for another GameHaus meetup! No tabletop gaming experience necessary! GameHaus is a laughter-filled place in Glendale that has over 1000 games, from strategic board games to party games like Pictionary. We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time.
UPDATE: zengargoyle has generously offered to put the RSVP on their card for us. Thank you!

I set the time at 2pm but there was a request for an earlier start. I'm good for 11am on.

There is a flat cover charge which gives you unlimited time to play unlimited games. Once we pick a date we will definitely need to make a reservation a week or so out. Cover charge for an RSVP is a non-refundable $10.

I am happy to coordinate this but I will be unable to cover the up-front cost of making the RSVP this time, so hopefully someone will be able to float the $ until the meetup. (Last meetup I think it was $90.)

We usually spend about four hours there, so like last time I've set up a poll for four or five weekends with a choice of afternoon hours or evening hours. (We can narrow down exact times once we pick a date.)

There is no alcohol and no outside food permitted, but they have a small cafe with prepared food and desserts.

The second weekend of the month is bad for me.

Would anyone else be interested in meeting at 11, when it first opens, or noon, on a Saturday? I have tinnitus, and the noise level in the late afternoon and evening is hard on my poor ringing ears.😕

As a morning person, I'd be up for 11 or 12.

I am open to an earlier start as well.

Also open to earlier but depends on the day. Thanks for organizing, Room!

Room 641-A, is it possible to modify your poll to include 11a.m. - 3 p.m. as an option?

Yeah, sorry, I lost most of a week due to illness. Good idea. I'll update the poll and post the popular votes. After coffee and breakfast :)

The poll is updated! If you responded already please update your vote if you want an early start.

I'm in pretty much whenever it lands. (yes, my life is that rich and exciting.)

Yay, I wanted to make the last one but couldn't make it. Hopefully this time. I'm in Glendale so it would be a total shame to miss it again.

Update: the most popular 11am slots are Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 30 (3 RSVPs each) and the most popular overall is Saturday, April 22 at 2pm (4 RSVPs.)

Should I go ahead and confirm this for 4/22 and figure out details there, or do people want more time to pick a date?
posted by Room 641-A at 5:33 AM on March 25, 2017

I will cover the RSVP so we're all set there. Come one, come all.

April 22 works for spammusubi and me. Thanks!

I am finally feeling better, sorry for leaving this hanging. I'm going to confirm this for 4/22 during the day, and we can figure out how early people want to start.

I can make it if it's at 2, but I might be a little late.

Let's keep it at 2 so betweenthebars can make it.
posted by LeftMyHeartInSanFrancisco at 11:25 AM on April 10, 2017

We should make the reservation in the next day or two, so if people can confirm their RSVP that would be great, thanks.

And done. We have a reservation under 'Metafilter' for 7 people on Saturday the 22nd at 2pm. The Attending list at the time of reservation:

Attending (7)

They said the table would be setup beforehand if anybody shows up a bit early.

I'm going to the Science March, wearing a beautiful pussy hat made by @quietgal (to whom I owe a very big THANK YOU), so I'm​ a bit iffy for the Meet-up. It depends on how the march goes, and whether I stay for all the speeches.
posted by LeftMyHeartInSanFrancisco at 11:10 PM on April 19, 2017

Thank you! Since I have to go through dtla anyway I will probably get an early start and wander around the March for a bit.

I'll take care of it today, ApathyGirl, and we can settle next time I see you. Sorry you can't make it.
