Clarification.  We meet at the food court inside Oakridge Mall.  The food court is located at the entrance to the movie theatres.

I summarized the activities everyone suggested.  I copied the list on the second post.  We meet at the food court and choose what we do in the afternoon and evening.

  • Bowling.  Bowling alley across the street.
  • Tabletop Gaming
  • SVGL (aka Sunnyvale Golfland)
  • Ice Skating
  • Bread and Kinokuniya and maybe Ice Cream
  • Ballroom Dancing
  • Ice Skating
  • In-N-Out
  • Sushi Factory
  • An Awesome Last Minute Idea
I just realized we're missing an option: Jerry's place Unless that is off the table?

@Makaki: Do come... it is an open event.
There will be other new faces as well so don't worry about being a stranger.
Sounds like we might live pretty close to each other. I'm also 5-10 min. away.

Oh, thanks guys :) I did misunderstand, I saw the words, 'close' and 'friends' and I was like, Oh no  :-X! It'd be nice to see some new people from Fanime. Considering that I've been going to Fanime for a while and only made like a couple of friends, haha. Do people really dress up in cosplay a lot at these gatherings? Gawd, I have to speed up my cosplay costume progress  :o Lol

@Sunara: Omg a local local, hehe. Excited. You don't have to answer, but do you go to a high school or college? :)

Not a whole lot. You can if you want to cosplay.
I personally won't cosplay as my new ones aren't done yet.

Actually... I already graduated college. Sadly I'm now a NEET as I don't have a job yet. T.T Though technically I'm not truly because I'm looking? Eh.

Yes! I miss these kinds of gatherings. Just like old times, huh? Count me in (work pending).

I have this fear as well. Job market is so bad :( But hopefully, you can find something in San Jose...aka Silicon Valley woot.

K guys, couple more options:

There is a carnival at Oakridge right now. If it is still there next week, it means two things:
1) It is yet another option in the "what to do" category. Even though most of the rides are probably kiddy rides, there is at least one that isn't.
2) It very likely will mean that parking will be a pain. I hope it isn't but I want people to be prepared.

In addition to food places, I want to through out other options around Oakridge; near the grocery store. There is a japanese fast food place called Wasabi (I'm been meaning to try it so I don't know how good it is but the prices aren't bad.), Johnny Rockets, and a Pizza My Heart. Whether or not they can take such a crowd, like us, is another matter.

As far as the "Awesome Last Minute Idea", a few suggestions:

-'Gourmet Race' eating challenge: SmokeEaters HellFire Challenge (a.k.a. 911 Challenge, as seen on Man V. Food)
-'Gourmet Race' eating challenge: In-n-Out Burger X by X Challenge (roll a d10 or d20 to get the number of meat patties and slices of cheese)
-another form of eating challenge (you can tell I'm hungry right now)
-Iguanas for the Burritozilla and roam around Downtown SJ
-Roller skating at Cal-Skate in Milpitas
-Ice skating at Sharks Ice (already suggested)
-Driving range at a golf course (... maybe it's only me who likes this?)

There's a SmokeEaters in Downtown SJ and near Santa Clara University. I've always wanted to hang out with people wanting to do the Hellfire challenge (and I want to do it too!).

For those who says they can't skate, you can try Cal-Skate because it's roller skating, rather than roller blading, and a little easier.

I could provide rides to and from places, too.


This reminds me of the old 'Fanimapril Fools Day' gatherings we used to have.

There is also San Jose Skate, which is down Blossom Hill Rd. (not too far from Oakridge, iirc)
Just throwing it out there.

I keep the activities discussion open and unrestricted.  There are many fun activities and many combinations.  We begin discussing our activities at 1pm.  I have finals this week.  I update the post Thur night.

Tsubasa is correct past Fanime gatherings we were together.  I want to try something different.  If we have several preferences, then we can split into groups.  If we stay together, we stay together.  If we separate, we separate.  The gathering is to have fun, meet new people, catch up, and, yes, have fun.

@mDuo13, I added the movie option to the list of activities on the second post.

Here’s my choice:  movie, eat a quick meal, ice skating, and dinner.  SVGL is a bonus where we can play video games, play golf, or socialize at the benches.

Okay, so I'm a maybe now...


If we/y'all go to SVGL, another idea is to bring board games/people's DS's (Though I'm sure most people generally do anyway). Plus since there's all the RA RA RA RA AAHHHH ASDFGHJKL; with HeartGold & SoulSilver... yeah.

Well I sorta desperately need the hours, and I know they don't have anyone else to cover for me (6 person crew ftw).

It's okay, there's always next time.

I just moved and I am still trying to catch up with all my bills.
