    Alright so let’s make this happen. Let’s meet each other at our own mixer! To make things simple, how’s June 26th? We all have different schedules but would the evening work? Location is always kinda hassle to pin down but if you guys have suggestions, I’m all ears.

    Anyhow, let’s make something happen.

    I’m completely down for this. My son has a water polo tournament during the day so the evening is great:) Thank you Melissa for starting this:)

    Sadly this is a little too short notice for me :-/ I have plans next weekend. I was going to try to aim something for the weekend of July 9th-10th. Buuuuut I am only one person so we can always do both, and I hope you all have a wonderful time without me.

    @endlesspictures not a bad idea, it just depends on whose in for sure. Plus getting an escape room for next weekend may be hard to pull off but it’s not impossible.

    @irishalliwell120, yes we can absolutely do something in July as well! I just personally went for June 26th because I know @111error will be in town and I wanted some opportunity to get Tension people together in case the June 25th OOA Orientation is a bust due to the calendar being ignored. But ya if you want to plan the July date let us know, I’m partially free that weekend. :)

    Here’s a thought, we could reserve a party room at like a pizza place or a bowling alley, decorate it for a kid’s party and just all show up in black and stand around quietly being creepy.

    Just a thought, but does anyone have a house or property where we can BBQ and have our own dinner? I would love to cook for you all, I’m quite handy in the kitchen 😜

    I like all the ideas! How about this:

    June 26–somewhere public because a mixer at someone’s house may be too short of time to get that organized.

    July date–maybe mixer at someone’s house or apartment/condo rec room area?? I’d personally say Mac and cheese gathering :)

    Yay @mkarrett that’s great news! Except the part about @111error being in town on what is clearly the wrong weekend as I will not be there to meet his awesome self. I guess we will both have to return to the city of angels to make that happen.
    @kingkill33 I think that’s an amazing idea and would gladly offer my house, but everyone and their mother would have to come all the way down to San Diego to do so. But I love food, so we’ll have to figure out a way that you can make some. Perhaps barbeque at a park or beach? Do people still do this? What kind of food do you cook?
    @endlesspictures I’d do an escape room with you any day. Sounds like fun :-)

    @irishalliwell120 My specialties are Italian, American BBQ, and Mexican, but give me a recipe and I’ll nail it. I definitely have enough tricks up my sleeve to cook for us.
    @mkarrett I have outdoor grills and a pool/spa. Maybe we can plan for that down the line. I’d have to clear it with the apartments, which has been done before, but it would require some planning.

    I make a killer vanilla bean cheesecake with homemade whipped cream and a chocolate wafer crust.

    I’m in for both dates as well. I may be a little late to the July gathering but I’ll make it work.

    So I would like to put it forward that we should follow the advice of 4 and make the events a “family affair”.
    I was wondering how literal this was meant to be.
    When I arrive in LA in July I will be accompanied by my family. My misses has given me the go ahead to abandon them for a day or two for events while we are there. If there were to be a community gathering I would like all of your blessings for them to attend as well. She Is starting to become quite interested herself.
    If not I understand. It seems to me that any good community has families within them… I dunno. lol.

    For June 26th gathering I was thinking EightyTwo or XLanes in little Tokyo.

    However, I’m holding off on solidifying the meet up place until I figure out where VesCorp is doing their event that evening.

      “plumbus
      First they take the dinglebop, and they smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then repurposed for later batches. They take the dinglebop and push it through the krumbo, where the fleeb is rubbed against it. It’s important that the fleeb is rubbed, because the fleeb has all of the fleeb juice. Then a schlomi shows up, and rubs it, and spits on it. They cut the fleeb. There are several hizzards in the way. The blamphs rub against the trumbles, and the plubus and grumbo are shaved away. That leaves you with a regular old plumbus.
      Everyone has a plumbus in their home.”

    Hope everyone is having fun!
    I was looking forward to meeting everyone, but I wont be able to make it out this time.
    Here’s hoping something unexpected brings a little tension for all.

    Cheers!

    It is absolutely imperative that someone post any occurrences exactly at 8 your time.
