Plan: 21+ Meet & Greet
« on: February 05, 2013, 06:51:21 AM »

Hello everyone.
A couple of friends of mine where thinking of taking AX's 21+ m&g idea to Fanime.
So far its just in the brain storming part, although we did thought about it last year but never got around to it.

So what is a 21+ m&g you ask?
It's simple really those who are of the legal drinking age would head over to near by bar and enjoy the company of fellow Fanime attendees while having an alcoholic drink.

So how about it? Anyone interested? Or have some ideas as well?

====================================================================
Alright here is the update as of 3/19:
These are the possible bars we can go to. (in no particular order) We will do a recon first to kind of check the place out.
If there is any more bars you can suggest or would like to vote for a bar you like please do so.
We would then vote on which bar to go to.


Bars:
1. Dive Bar
2. Tanq in Marriott
3. San Jose Bar & Grill
4. South First Billiards
5. 4th St Pizza
6. Gordon Biersch
7. Flames Eatery & Bar
8. Los Gatos Brewing Co.
9. Lounge in The Fairmont

Time:
Saturday night, time:TBA
(keep bugging Fanime staff to relase the schedule early)

Attendees:
YaoiCat (+3)
AuroraDreamer (+2)
princesskitty18(+1)

Rum party huh? Tell me more.

The next time I'm in San Jose I'll make sure to do some scouting.
The only places I been too was the bar next door, and one of the local breweries right up the street. But their beers where kind of bad, the kind only a frat kid would drink. The bar next door was typical high price hotel bar price.

yeah... that was kinda pointless post...

Anywho- back to the rum party- i will dig up the schedules from previous years n post here the previous details. But I recall it being in one of the Hilton floor lounge rooms.

We could always have someone with a suite host a party with byob or something...

Not awkward!  Just saying that, "yes I have been to some of the bars/clubs near the convention" and they are nothing to write home about.  But, I suppose with enough booze anything can be fun.

Not pointless.  San Jose is meh.  It could be great but it just doesn't want to be.  Besides, not many people are posting in these forums... why would you say that was pointless.  Ugh!  Don't bother answering. 

On with the posts...

Ok....thanks for your informative posts
Back on topic,

I see, so the rum party is more of a byob room party. Seems like a good idea. I did thought of hosting a room party but I wasn't in charge of the room last year.
Although that could change this time, I'll have to play it by ear.

There always the pros and cons for a room party and a bar/club.

No, the byob is an idea I just came up with right now. The rum party was(dunno if it'll be there his year-....yet) an actual event.

There always the pros and cons for a room party and a bar/club.
A room party would be too cramped and a bar isn't as comfortable as a lounge room.. at least the last time I went to such a thing.


I've so far found a copy of the 2011 Swap Meet form, but I'm still looking for some of the schedule booklets I kept...

so i do remember the rum party. it was an actual event hosted by fanime but it didn't have alcohol. since it was a fanime-run event, they kept it PG, so they had like soda or soemthign instead of the alcohol

a room party sounds awesome (ive been to a couple in the past couple of years) and byob is DEFINITELY enforced there
so if someone coudl put together a room party, that would be cool

im still down to ask some of my friends who live in san jose where some chill ass bars are

Hmmm... that's wierd because I remember seeing it one year and passing by the room and there were definitely people drinking...

maybe they had two rum parties? but i know that one of them was definitely PG/no alcohol
iono about the other one
i think its still really early in regards to finding parties
theres always parties and watnot being put up like the week or two before fanime happens

in the meantime, lets just keep brainstorming for places like echo said

A meetup in a bar would be fun, aren't there bars inside the Hilton and Marriott?

Are they?  I haven't been to the bars at Fanime's hotels, but I went to the bar at Sac-Anime's hotel last year and it seemed normal priced to me.  Although, I suppose that could be because I spend a lot of time in San Francisco where all the bars are pretty pricey, lol.  I just figured going to one of the bars connected to the convention center would be most convenient for everyone.

Maybe "a" beer would be fine... but yeah, it's expensive. Maybe theyll have a deal this year?
