Trust me, you really don't want to live in Chicago. It's too boring here, well I meam the north side that is..

Anyway, I might go this Saturday just to learn how to get there by CTA, and PACE...

05-28-2003, 10:54 PM
So far, all I know that according to the CTA/RTA/WHATEVER, it said that you need to take PACE BUS # 606 from the ROSEMONT CTA BUS TERMINAL A.K.A. the Rosemont CTA Train Stop.

Here's a pic to understand my point...

05-29-2003, 12:46 AM
Um the Sunday's are out for me cuz those are the days I for sure work. Probably a Friday, but I will check and get back to you for a definite vote tomorrow.
And I'm sure Chicago's less boring than ~Geneva~

05-29-2003, 09:31 AM
woah dude. june 14 is out for me because it's Pimp Ash's 21st birthday...

05-29-2003, 09:33 AM
Lemme put it this way.I could go to the moon and find more life there on a saturday night than I could here.It's so bad.....it's not even funny! >.<

05-29-2003, 10:24 AM
NOT JUNE 14th!!!!! Thats my best friends graduation party...and I won't be able to hang out with him for much longer ;_; ::sob:: How does like....June 25th sound??? I'll be back from chicago...loaded with b-day cash...and be all happy ;_; PLEASE!

05-29-2003, 10:28 AM
i wanna live in Cali - Chicago has sucky weather

05-29-2003, 11:38 AM
If June 14th isn't going to work for you, vote for a different date, if you haven't already! I'm not picking which date, that's what the poll is for (err, unless we wind up with a tie).

The 25th is a Wednesday, the hope was to try to make it so that people who work will be able to attend. I think Friday evening might be easier to manage than a Wednesday.

05-29-2003, 12:05 PM
Yah I voted for friday Late afternoon/evening on Friday....cuz I can book straight to Mitsuwa after getting back from class after 5.


05-30-2003, 03:54 PM
From the Members currently shown on the C^3 website, apparently 12 out of 14 have voted. And June 14 and June 20 span a difference of one vote.

When do you want to close the polls? I'd like to start planning ahead if at all possible....

It's a medical fact that scientists cause cancer in Laboratory animals.

That's not an official member list, more of a test version.

Nevertheless, I'm going to close the poll this Monday night. So anyone who hasn't voted yet, get those votes in! And don't worry, if a few of you can't make the date that gets chosen, I'm sure that there will be repeat trips. ^^

I'm just wondering, how many people actually went to Mitsuwa before? Cause I never been there, until later today. I'm going to attempt to go there by PACE bus with my friend, just hope we don't get lost...

05-31-2003, 05:19 PM
Wait. . .I'm lost, there is a con or something?
Where is it? And when is it?

(I've read all the posts and I'm still lost)

05-31-2003, 05:51 PM
I just got back from Mitsuwa, and I have to say OMFG! In a good way, and a bad way. The good way is seeing how many japapese products are in the store (that I couldn't get in the North Side), and seeing some familiar faces (like the ACen staff, and cosplayers?...). The bad way is that how I have to get there. It took me TWO HOURS just to get from my home to Mitsuwa by CTA, and PACE. When I got inside, almost everything is in japapese and speaking japanese, including the prices are in yen (wel some) and I couldn't understand it. And I couldn't find the freaking PACE bus sign, that I have to walk like 0.5 miles to find one! In my opinion, I need some who knows the area too damn well, cause I literally got lost in Arlington Hts......

Note: is just me, or was in this forums or in the ACen forums that someone works in Mitsuwa. It's cause it's this blonde girl who saw working as a bagger, and looks like she's a cosplayer....

06-01-2003, 06:29 PM
Since the poll is almost over. How will everybody get there?

Note: If you're going to get there by PACE/CTA, and it's your first time going there. GOOD LUCK, and you need all of it!!! Cause I have to do it, the hard way...

06-01-2003, 10:33 PM
Well we can see if we can't arrange some carpools or something as well . . . I can't help out with that, unfortunately, as I don't have a car.

SoulCrash - It's not hard to do a yen to dollars rough price conversion, and in the bookstore and such they have signs posted about CD prices. But to go from yen to dollars, move the decimal point two places and then it'll actually be a bit less than that. (So 3000 = somewhere around $26.00)

Nerve - Sorry, we were discussing this in another thread. This is for a trip to Mitsuwa, a Japanese grocery store (with bookstore, food court, and small anime shop) in Schaumburg, IL. (Well it may technically be Arlington Heights or something, but it's not far from Woodfield Mall.) It's not in costume, it's just to hang out, have some food, and shop a bit.

06-01-2003, 10:40 PM
Is it just me, or half to 3/4 of the club don't have a car, or drive a car. Anyway, taking the PACE bus isn't that bad onless you know how the PACE system works. So I can get there on my own, onless some will give me a ride.... uh huh, like that will happen.....

I drive my 92 Thunderbird, Berry Pimp-mobile


06-02-2003, 07:39 PM
looks like its gonna be the 20th

06-02-2003, 08:42 PM
Ayaka- Thanks, it's near woodfield mall, i don't live to far from their, i might be able to come! ^^

06-03-2003, 08:13 AM
Well we've got a date and a place. Now all that is needed is a time frame and we're good to go!!

06-03-2003, 11:57 AM
how late is Mitsuwa open? I'm pretty sure I could get there 5 - 5:30 ish. It would be nice to have a good bowl of ramen for dinner...or sushi.


06-03-2003, 12:31 PM
Mitsuwa closes at 8pm everyday. So yeah, possibly 5 o'clock? Even earlier is fine with me. I have to be somewhere at 6:30 :(

06-03-2003, 12:35 PM
Gah I can't close the darn poll . . . >< Well, err, nobody vote anymore, lol. The date is Friday the 20th. If we get there around 5, that gives us three hours. Does anyone feel that they need more time? How many people could get there earlier (and would like to) besides Mara?

06-03-2003, 04:01 PM
Is it ok if i come? It feels like i'm inviting myself. . . :thumbsup:

06-03-2003, 05:20 PM
The more the merrier!


06-03-2003, 05:47 PM
I'll be there.

06-03-2003, 05:50 PM
If this wasn't an open for anyone type thing, do you think we'd be discussing it on the board? :3 You're welcome to come. ^^

06-03-2003, 06:26 PM
When I meet you guys at Mitsuwa on the 20th of June. How should I call you guys? By your cosplay.com screen name? Or by your real name?

For me, I like to call you by your real names, cause it feels weird for me calling you by your cosplay.com name.... You can just call me by my cosplay.com. But I might not reconize it for some reason, cause not MANY peeps call me by that name. I prefer you call me Ron or Ronald.

Also, I'll probably be there EARLY as ****, cause I don't want to get lost in the area....

06-05-2003, 02:11 PM
Er...i dunno - i kinda like the cosplay.com names cuz thats how i know you already and it'll be like learning 3 different names at once and ya know you wont remember everyone's name...

I dunno, that may just be me.

So we're looking at 5? I want to say i can go, so its all good ^_^

Hehe, anyone want to head to Woodfield and get Starbucks afterwards?! ^_^ I luv starbucks - hehe

Is it just me, or is there a freaking Starbuck in every corner I looked at??...

Remember that one Simpsons episode where every store in the mall turned into a StarBucks....

06-07-2003, 06:09 AM
lol!! Yes! (on the Simpson starbucks ep) Good times ^_^

06-07-2003, 12:12 PM
I can go but I would like to bring a friend who isn't on cosplay.com. Is that OK?

06-07-2003, 12:31 PM
Cute But Deadly - Yes, that's fine. I'm going to do some kind of headcount beforehand, I want to know everyone who's coming, so just remember to tell me about them again then.

When does Woodfield even close? lol. Guess I'm never there at night.

06-07-2003, 12:50 PM
If I remember right. Isn't there a Gameworks right next to Woodfield?

06-07-2003, 01:42 PM
Yeah at Streets of Woodfield, right across the street from Woodfield . . . o.O Err, appropriately, I guess. ^^; But yes, there is a Gameworks.

06-07-2003, 08:09 PM
yes there is, i went there after acen, in my cosplay, and a person glared at me but i glared back

06-08-2003, 02:49 AM

we could theoretically rent a room at GW, and play free DDR (like with a time card :) )

06-08-2003, 10:18 AM

06-08-2003, 10:37 AM

06-08-2003, 09:10 PM
I hope I can make it if I don't have work. Oh what the hell, I'll trade hours with someone. What time exactly are we weeting on Fri the 20th?

06-08-2003, 09:17 PM
the other pika ho lives in Philidelphia (yes it sucks and it's inconvenient when i'm making her costumes).

06-08-2003, 09:39 PM
I'll be there at 4:30. The main conversation and information is in the club forum (down at the bottom of the main forums page, that's us).
