View Full Version : what day for singles lunch at otakon?
05-14-2003, 04:33 PM
ok...anyone wishing to attend the "looking for <3 at otakon" singles lunch pick the day of the con that's best for you!
05-14-2003, 04:46 PM
Saturday is when most people ar ethere though we will prolly ahve to work around cosplay.com, cosplaylab, acp and any other photo shoots
05-14-2003, 04:48 PM
you're not single! you can't vote! :-p jk of course mako.
05-14-2003, 05:00 PM
doenst it have to be for singles....? ::gives sad pupp... kitty eyes::
05-14-2003, 05:02 PM
I'd love to do it Friday (less cosplay group madness lol) but everyone's bound to be arriving at all different times, so it's practically impossible for everyone to be able to get together for lunch at 1 if some people aren't getting there till 4, ya know?
Saturday would rock as well, but good luck trying to work through the myriad of group(s!) everyone is in.. but I'm the wrong person in that department.
Sunday could work, perfect time to relax and unwind, but with the whole room checking out deal it could get complicated. Plus if people are relying on mass transit *coughMYSELFcough* or other people for rides, more craziness.
Each day has it's good points and bad, so I say whenever! we can make it work no matter what, just how much work will it take is the big question..
05-14-2003, 05:10 PM
exactly my thoughts, silent duelist. hence the poll :) since everyone has problems with every day i say just tally up the votes when it's closer to the can and pick the day that way and then maybe put up a poll with times.
and yes, we'll make it work regardless!
::goes into sailormoon ultra shoujo mode::
Cosplay power....make up! (or for die-hard fans: kasupure pawaa...meeku apu!)
::comes out of ultra shoujo mode and slinks off into a corner somewhere feeling embarrassed::
edit: and mako, i declare an exception to the singles rule for you and jon ^_^ (and anyone else who wants to come lol)
05-14-2003, 06:53 PM
I'm not single. Can I still come? I hope so, everyone seems really nice and fun and I'd like to meet you all. If you do wind up doing it on Sunday and people have problems because they have to check out and have no place to put their stuff or whatever, I will offer up my large amount of extra trunk space.
05-14-2003, 11:22 PM
of course you can go! i was only kidding about not letting people in ^_^ i'm sure everyone would agree that anyone who wants to join is welcome :)
05-15-2003, 12:49 AM
i'd say saturday just because I'll probably be taking off early Sunday w/ the whole check out and then I'll probably be arriving Friday morning, so my vote goes to Sat :)
and that's my two cents :P
05-15-2003, 02:21 AM
Um Im confused.. is this just for all the folks in the jersey area?
05-15-2003, 09:24 AM
I'm not single, but I'll chill w/ you all. LET'S DO HOOTERS!!! :D
05-15-2003, 11:41 AM
I vote friday because of all the photo stuff on sat.
05-15-2003, 01:06 PM
ok.. so um is this picnic going to be at the convention? cuz If so then I'm in! I vote Friday or even Sunday.. Theres too much stuff going on Saturday.
05-15-2003, 05:41 PM
hmm maybe we should just have a lunch along with the cosplay.com photoshoot and do it like that instead and have evryone whos goin to the shoot bring food. Have like an orgy of foodness ::drools::
05-15-2003, 06:03 PM
Hmm. Good idea. But then I think everyone would want in, which would be a problem if we bring food for a certain amount of people. Do you mean wait til the photoshoot's over?
05-15-2003, 07:22 PM
yeah wait toill its done. I mean at the cosplay east coast picnic we had soo much leftover food, so if evryone brings something i think well be good ^^
05-15-2003, 07:42 PM
I really like your idea, and since Saturday seems to be in the lead, it'll probably work. We've just got to see when/where the photoshoot is and if there are any major events close in time to it.
05-15-2003, 08:05 PM
yeah ^_^ then we can make a Big magical post prolly on Otakon as well as general. If we wanna we can ask someone to make an official post or whatnot
05-18-2003, 09:13 PM
I'm in for Saturday!!! ^_^....is it ok i bring my best friend with me??? she's not cosplaying though...(wish she would)..can i??
05-18-2003, 09:14 PM
Sure you can. ^-^
So, i'm guessing it's going to be Saturday then.
05-18-2003, 09:24 PM
Yay!!!...yes it seems Saturday is the day ppl are going for. ^_^
05-20-2003, 02:30 AM
Saturday...do we know what time?
Theres so much going on that day.. I hope I can make it
06-14-2003, 02:49 AM
heh This is also Not a Test!! XD
Um so do we know what time? I REALLY want to go to this one!
06-14-2003, 04:10 AM
wow, i complelty forgot about this thread...so many different dinner and fun stuff groups have been popping up I forgot about this meeting. It sounds like a lot of fun, hopefully it won't conflict with anything.
06-14-2003, 04:34 AM
06-14-2003, 11:16 AM
yay for bumpage!! i couldn't even find this thread any more lol... hm times...i think we were waiting to find out when the cosplay.com photoshoot is happening and work from that.
06-14-2003, 05:09 PM
Wait wait wait, if this is singles group and there are going to be people who aren't single doesn't that defeat the purpose? I don't wanna get beat up cause i hit on some girls guy ^_^
06-14-2003, 05:46 PM
I'm not looking for love or anything, but I'd like to join you guys ^_^ I put my vote in for Sunday because I'm one of those people who likes to stay for the entire con, and there is usually NOTHING to do on Sunday, so a fun meal with lots of people is probably good for getting rid of the effects of too much Saturday nite XD
06-15-2003, 12:12 AM
radical urd: yeah, i don't know. i think we were planning a singles thing but a lot of people want in anyways, and it's mean to exclude them...how about we just make the announcement that anyone is fair game, and not to take offense if someone hits on you? lol i don't know what else to do.
06-15-2003, 12:18 AM
Yea dammit! If you come to it knowing what it was you are fair game! XD Okay good
PS: Is it safe to say WhiteNinja is cute?
06-15-2003, 12:33 AM
haha i think saying anyone's cute is safe ;) Who would mind a compliment?
06-15-2003, 12:46 AM
*shakes head and blushes* I have a crush on a guy I haven't even talked to lol. Anywho I'm looking forward to this meeting. Is it Saturday?
06-15-2003, 12:54 AM
lol god only knows at this point...but yes i believe Saturday is what we're planning. We're just waiting on times for the photoshoot and stuff to work around
06-15-2003, 02:23 PM
ooh one important thing! WHERE/WHEN are we going to meet up on saturday?
Weren't a bunch of us meeting on friday down by the flag area...(near the OLD dealer's room?) I think that might be another meeting... oops
06-16-2003, 06:44 PM
How about Saturday afternoon around 4?
06-16-2003, 06:52 PM
sounds good to me! I know I'll be eating dinner WAY later like 9 ish
06-16-2003, 09:39 PM
yeah, i think i'd be able to make it for that time if that's what gets decided upon.
06-16-2003, 10:24 PM
Earlier? perhaps? can't go too late, the Masquerade you know, plus I have a meeting at like 1 sooo....
06-16-2003, 10:25 PM
yea i wa sthinking teh picni should be like 1 or 2 or so
06-16-2003, 10:33 PM
wem do still have a month and a half but still....a time would be good....
06-16-2003, 10:33 PM
*cringe* why do you write like that????? <-is anally retentive about spelling
Anywho! Um I dunno..... 1 or 2 should be fine. Why is something happening around that time
06-17-2003, 02:29 AM
i think saturday at 2 sounds good! so er where are we meeting up? I'm still not clear >_< hehe
06-17-2003, 10:27 AM
woot times are being picked!!! yay!!! saturday any time is good for me...4 does sound kinda late for lunch, but 2 sounds good :) and maybe anyone who's going to help with buying/setting up food can meet at like 1?
06-17-2003, 12:23 PM
I'm fine with two...unless my Chobits photo thingy get sin the way then i can't make it....but So far i can make this so far ^_^
06-17-2003, 08:29 PM
Then two it is!
06-18-2003, 12:43 AM
woo hooo! saturday at 2 sounds good
now where are we meeting? XD
06-18-2003, 12:47 AM
Wow O.o 2 o' clock...
Yeah figuring out a place to meet would be great...IMO, lets not eat at Burger King...that place is already packed non-stop during the con weekend ^^;
06-18-2003, 12:50 AM
now is this going to be the same as the picnic moonclarinet? XD I guess ill talk with you about it late ne?
06-18-2003, 12:55 AM
I say we meet down by the area where the old dealers room used to be... in that main lobby area with all those flags... at the base of the escalators i think near that fountain thingy...
06-18-2003, 12:56 AM
not familiar with the area so I can't give any recommendations, but 2 on saturday sounds good!
06-18-2003, 12:57 AM
^ dont worry Eric we shall guide you! XD
06-18-2003, 01:03 AM
flag area? *blink blink*
¿si o no?
06-18-2003, 01:05 AM
sound slike agood meetin place
06-18-2003, 01:08 AM
woo hoo its offical then?
06-18-2003, 01:18 AM
gonn a talk to moon first
06-18-2003, 01:46 AM
hehe, its good to see things start to shape up though and thanks for being my guide mako :P don't worry, i'll do the same in boston ^_^
06-18-2003, 01:48 AM
YAY!! ::hugs:: thanks! How magical of you! ^_^
06-18-2003, 01:53 AM
lol, no prob, (magical, eh? not to be confused with smelly, i take it :P see, i'm learning the phrases )
06-18-2003, 05:28 PM
haha you better guide in boston eric, it's your job!! and mako lessee what do you need to talk to me for? just so i can say uh huh sounds good? woohoo i can do that :) 2 sounds great, meeting downstairs by the flags and such sounds like a good idea, except we can't eat there, and like i said some people are oging to be needed to set up picnic stuff...yes i think this is the same picnic as the other thread mako...blah i don't even know anymore :-p but this is the only gathering i'm involved in setting up, so i say yes, this is the same picnic. grrr where to eat is a good question..if i could get down to baltimore before the con and look around that would be great but i don't think it'll happen lol. mako weren't we talking about the harbor at some point? like isn't there places to sit on that walkway thingy? honestly i think if we have any setup volunteers meet at 1, we can find a good place to set up and then like come back and lead people there at 2 lol....not the best plan i know but i'm not sure how else to work it w/o a nice detailed map of the convention area.
actually now that i think about it i might end up able to be in the area before hand...i'm most likely driving down to VA a few weeks before the con, maybe i can stop by in MD?
06-18-2003, 07:18 PM
oo goo dplan! yea i thought there was some god spots by the harbor.. can also always check on friday ^^
06-18-2003, 08:05 PM
woo hoo its offical!
so people attending the picnic (not setting up) meet down by the flag area (just ask where the old dealer's room was and you can't miss it) and we can go to wherever the picnic site is from there
So urm I'll bring stuff..and money ^_^
06-18-2003, 09:16 PM
Can we meet in the food court of the inner harbor? or is this like a real picinic basket kinda lunch?
06-18-2003, 09:37 PM
You mean the food court at the Gallery, or the food court at Harbourplace? One's right on the water, the other is in a mall kind of thing, but they're both kinda right next to each other. Well, to be a bit more easy for the non-locals (Yeah, I've lived in this area all my life.. pity me!), there's a food court on the side of Pratt Street on the water, then there's one on the other side of Pratt Street (and, therefore, not on the water).
Oh, by the way... hi everyone! I'm Loki!

06-19-2003, 01:10 AM

06-19-2003, 01:55 AM
Well hopefully we can eat outside SOMEHWERE but to keep things simple we're meeting at the bottom level down by where all the flags are.. We can decide where to go from there..
06-19-2003, 02:04 AM
I don't know what you'll need to do for setting up but considering I'll be following you guys around to figure out where to go, I'll be there to help you set up anything you need, ^_^
06-19-2003, 02:13 AM
yaaay!!! ::hugs:: thanks fo rhelpin yeah i dont think anything needs to be set up but we need a big strong man to carry subs lol.. hmm but what kind of subs does evryone like...? lol I like turkey
06-19-2003, 02:23 AM
i don't eat subs (so any kind is fine by me:P ), but I'll find something to snack on and drink. Just going to for fun and to socialize :)
06-19-2003, 02:29 AM
It looks like I am gonna have opertunity to meat even more new peole than I met at Katsucon 9, which was my first con. I wasn't dressed up. theonly way you would know who I am is If you saw the guy in the Nightmare before Christmas clubshirt. I hope I get to see a bunch of you down there.

06-19-2003, 04:35 AM
ooh speaking of the cosplay.com photoshoot.. does aonyone here know when/where thats taking place??
06-19-2003, 10:53 AM
I'm confused! Is this the singles lunch or the after photoshoot picnic, or have they both been combined? I don't pay enough attention I think......
06-19-2003, 01:46 PM
lol They have been combined into one magical feast!! lol
06-19-2003, 02:26 PM
Thank you! I am significantly less confused now. Will we be eating magical sandwiches and casting Ice2 on the drinks? :D
06-19-2003, 02:47 PM
lol mmm icey Ice2 drinks sound good lol ^_^ I sure hop they give us the magically sandwiches.. last time i forgot to specify magical when i ordered a sub and it was totally not as good.
06-19-2003, 03:15 PM
uh oh, last time i ate something that was "magical" i woke up in a jail cell three states over soooo nothing from subway for me.
06-19-2003, 06:56 PM
Yes, let's keep the consumption of "magical" items to those of a legal variety... just in case anyone is looking... *Shifty eyes*
Then again, being the good little doofus I am, the only illegal acts I do involve speeding (the speed limit is too friggin' low)!

NO DRUGS CHILDREN!!!! ::shakes finger:: drugs are bad.. and if you have them at the picnic I'll kick you and throw them in the bay!!!
06-19-2003, 07:24 PM
As against drugs as I really am, that doesn't sound a harsh enough punishment. OOH! New topic for me on the rant board! *Rushes off to rant*

06-20-2003, 08:35 PM
hmm that is a goo didea but alot people will be leaving.. what do you all think?
06-20-2003, 09:56 PM
ya true lots will be leaving... but considering the photo shoots and all the stuff going on... it would be the most relaxed and what not...
06-24-2003, 03:07 AM
I opted for friday or sundayu.. I think itd be best..
06-24-2003, 03:09 AM
but If im not mistaken.. Saturday is the definate day right? saturday at 2pm.. by the flag area...
oops doublepost oh well
06-26-2003, 01:38 PM

07-05-2003, 06:58 PM
Wait!!!! The Cosplay.com Shoot is at 2!! Right??? @_@ And so is the Singles lunch!!! That doesn't work!! Someone fix this....
07-05-2003, 07:03 PM
-_-.......... Any lunch that wa sgoing on was going to be going on AFTER the COSPLAY.COM photoshoot, so no fretting ^_^ Besides arent we meeting fo rthe shoot in by the flags?
07-05-2003, 07:06 PM
For Cosplay.com yes
07-05-2003, 07:08 PM
and we were meeting there fo rthe lunch anyway ^_^ and so it all fits together magically as i thought a lunch would hehe even though the lunches became smushed...
07-07-2003, 04:24 AM
"...and the peasants rejoiced." "Yay..."
07-15-2003, 12:49 AM
so anyway i guess i should revive this so I can ask you people that plan on being there to consume food what th epoop ya'll wanna do. Now are we eating outside? and if you are "picnicing" with us could you please PM me and tell me if your bringing friends so Moonclarinet andI know how many people nee dto be fed and we can figure how much moneys per person for subs and what not. Oh and do tell if you plan on bringing anything and what sub youd like. ^_^ I guess thats it. Oh and it sisnt really much of a "singles" lunch anymore so whoever wants to go can go
07-15-2003, 02:23 AM

It's at 1 ^^ So everything will fall in fine...I hope...
07-15-2003, 01:52 PM
hehe hey Noir! nice new avatar! hehe ok i didnt realize the photo was at 1 now... ::marks schedule::
yeah its just right after that pretty much :D yay
07-16-2003, 08:36 PM
AH! WAIT! Its saturday at 1? Isnt that when the cosplay.com photoshoot is?? and 2 PM is when the Big FF8 Photoshoot is, cant you make it like 3?
07-17-2003, 12:52 AM
No one gets what im saying! :(
This stupid smelly picnic thing is gonna be after the photoshoot at 1...
and thats that
I dont mean to sound mean but.... gah...
anyway no one has pm-ed me about this... and if no one does within the next 5 days then, its all outta my hands
07-18-2003, 12:07 AM
if i went, i wouldn't eat anything anyway, and i'd get my own drink, so you wouldn't have to worry about me, but like you said, if noone's interested or responds, then it probably isn't worth the stress of trying to organize it.
07-18-2003, 09:10 AM
I think there are a lot of people interested, but arent stepping forward and saying anything about it, i think it should go on as planned, and watch how many people show up, you all might be surprised
07-19-2003, 02:08 AM
We will still be around after the FF photoshoot if you want, jsut come on out and find us
I'd like to keep it after the Cosplay.Com photoshoot because thats what we originally planned on and hell it was even the same place we decided even before they announced the photoshoot. I may be a few mins late, though. I was asked to be part of a Trigun photoshoot RIGHT after the Cosplay.Com one I shouldn't be long... I am still coming, never fear!
Grave isn't part of the Trigun world so much as he is part of the overall Yasuhiro Nightow universe...
07-19-2003, 04:00 PM
yeah i stil havent gotten any pms so i think i may leave it up to someone else to be in charge of it... ::pokes DC::
07-19-2003, 05:21 PM
I would like to show up for this. I probably wouldnt eat anything and if i did, I would bring my own. Don't mind me though. I will probably be the quiet shy one walking around you guys. o.o;;
07-19-2003, 11:20 PM
Uhhhhhh Mishima your hot, so you wouldn't be too quiet with me around hun ^_~ I likes em shy!!!! XDDDD Sorry peps I'm in a good mood. Plus i was president of the legion of Trunks fangirls back in the day.... hmmm double whammy......
07-20-2003, 01:03 PM
- rubs the back of his head all Goku like- Heh, well thanks for the comment. I should be running around there somewhere that day. Duno if any of the rest of my friends are gonna cosplay with me though. I might stand out in my group. o.o;;
07-20-2003, 03:29 PM
sorry if i repeated something already said in here...but what day IS the lunch gonna be held?
07-23-2003, 04:24 AM
Saturday after the Cosplay.Com Photoshoot. It looks like I'm left incharge thanks to my lovely friend Makonurikoryoko (Hi!!!*glomp*) I hope she can still make it, seeing as my Master won't be able to *sigh*
Ok people here's the story. I need to know weather or not you are interested in getting together to eat or not. If so please reply to this message or AIM me, along with what you are contributing, if anything at all. my screen name is BLUBOY71781.
Contributions are not nessisary (sp?) but greatly appreciated!
Im bringing chips, nachos/dip, a 2 litre of Sprite Remix and cups.
We need napkins and, extra cups, utensils and other foods that dont need to be cooked. Unless someone plans on bringing a grill with them too....
07-24-2003, 02:25 AM
07-24-2003, 03:37 AM
I live like 5 miles from where otakon is... So if I can come up with some cash for a small grill I'll bring one. XD
Besides that I can come with obvious things... Condoments... Hotdogs... Cheese... Single guy type foods. But I dont have anything fancy like chips. Thats a lil out of my league. I have all the ramen you could ever ask for, though.
Get back to me on AIM. Kazou KiriyamaX for pics or BS. I'm -ALWAYS- on.
07-24-2003, 12:16 PM
whoa a grill would rock! I was just joking with that but if we can seriously get a grill goin that would seriously be awesome!
07-24-2003, 05:53 PM
Oi! DC! I've tried to AIM you like three times and you never respond! Whats the deal?? @_@ I'll bring cookies! And Tosssstitos!
07-29-2003, 09:09 PM
ooh try my email luv Im sorry I might have just been away from my PC, working on my costumes.. I am known to do that...
hmm I hope we get more people onboard.. if we dont I may have to abort this mission....
ki kuru kitty
07-30-2003, 09:51 AM
I will gladly join in on the meeting.
07-30-2003, 11:03 AM
well Im thinking about just doing a spur of the moment kinda thing.. sorta... after the photoshoot I'll ask if anyone wants to go have lunch together and see how big of a crowd we can get...
BUT here is a list of people I know that are going to be there..
ChichiriFreak and friend
Also please note you dont HAVE to be single to attend. We're jsut out to meet and chat while taking a rest from the con
07-30-2003, 11:50 AM
I'll Come!! ^_^...may i bring my best friend with me?? it'll be her 16th b-day on saturday! ^_^
07-30-2003, 01:14 PM
all are welcome!
07-31-2003, 02:13 PM
i'll try to make it, not too sure, but hopefully I'll at least stop by
ki kuru kitty
08-01-2003, 04:54 PM
^_^ I think we should have people that are good at spotting out people. To jump anyone who looks suspicious enough to be going to the singles picnic. Also maybe we should mention what we're wearing that day to be reconized, I'm trying to schedule all the gathers I'm attending to meet lots of people. See you all there, Love Kuru Kitty

I -MAY- take off the wig if its too hot. I dunno. So look for the otherwise sharply dressed light-brown man.

Sweet I'll make a note of bringing more food. I wont have the food with me due to the fact taht my Gungrave outfit is a bit akward, but I will meet up with everyone following the TriGungrave PhotoShoot which is RIGHT after the Cosplay.Com PhotoShoot and then prolly go back to my room to get the grub.
