View Full Version : San Diego Valentine's Gathering

After the success of our little Christmas and New Year's gatherings, love is in the air. As such, it seems only appropriate that our next event is Valentine's Day. Not to mention it is a great excuse to eat more chocolate:)

WHERE: We will meet in the open courtyard area next to the O-nami restaraunt in Mission Valley Mall. Here is the address for mapquesting
[Onami Restaurant: 619-295-9774
1640 Camino Del Rio N # 341 San Diego, CA 92108 ]

WHEN: Valentine's Day; Saturday February 14th at 12 noon. I will wait at the meeting spot until 1:00pm before going to the arcade and other attractions at the mall. Anybody coming after this time just wander around the mall looking for the best dressed people there, that will be us:) You will most likely find us in the vacinity of the arcade or Rising Sun Creations.

WHAT: Arcade games, shopping, and hanging around in costume. If you don't want to wear a costume, I'm cool with that too. O-nami opens for dinner at 5:00pm, which is when we will go there and enjoy the delights of japanese buffet.

Hope to see you all there:)

sounds like fun!

Not sure i can make it to san diego though...hmm

it also depends on what my 'boyfriend'(I use the tern losely becouse we havn't actually started dating yet) wants to do

He's still sort of afread of my cosplaying hobby and it might be better if he stayed away from other cosplayers..lest tell I can get him more used to it

Plus who knows..maybe he will actually take me out!

sounds like I'll try and make it, provided I have money and a job hopefully by then! i'm thinking of turning my xmas gothic lolita into a valentines one by getting some heart ribbon to lace up the front and sleeves, then making a headpiece with heart ribbons and if I can find some heart toe socks that'd be awesome XD

Ms. Integra, I don't make decisions *snicker*

Anyway, now to contradict the previous statement. I was thinking perhaps we could have a really cool dinner at the Olive Garden if anybody wants to go there. They serve a fine variety of Italian cuisine at a decent price. Not to mention thet have the best dessert ever, chocolate lasagna. Here are 4 decent locations:
11555 CARMEL MOUNTAIN RD - SAN DIEGO CA , 92124 USA
9800 MISSION GORGE RD - SANTEE CA , 92071 USA
5500 GROSSMONT CENTER DRIVE - LA MESA CA , 91942 USA
3215 SPORTS ARENA BLVD - SAN DIEGO CA , 92110 USA
I'm partial to the Carmel Mountain location, since it is closest to me, but the others are more centrally located, and I believe at least one of them is really close to a mall. That would provide shopping opportunities as well as lots of muggles:)

Let me know what you all think.

Miaka No Baka
01-13-2004, 02:09 AM
for those coming from up north, (l.a. area) the carmel mountain road one and the sports arean blvd are the closest. They're maybe 115 miles away from la area instead of 130+ for the other two ^_^; Whatever sounds good for everyone, I really hope I can make this! People are cosplaying right?

hmm the one at grossmont center is good. so let's go there.

Suzushichan
01-13-2004, 05:42 PM
I agree, that's probably the only one I could go to unless I got a ride...^^'

Oh, and Yunierei; that special someone was my BF...:)

and everyone else; YES! this IS a COSPLAY event!!! ^O^

LordofWickd4est
01-13-2004, 06:05 PM
The Grossmont one looks to be about 15-20 min from Mission Valley mall, and I don't know which malls are closer. But Mission Valley has Rising Sun Creations, which is a neat little all things J shop that everybody would like. Also, if people are more interested in the mall, Mission Valley has an O-nami, which is a sushi buffet. $23 bucks per person, but it is all you can eat. They have unlimited green tea ice cream also. Olive Gardens average entree wil be between $10-$15. So now there are even more choices to work with. Discuss.

So far, it looks like it is between the Carmel Mountain and Grossmont locations for Olive Garden.

I'll take Mission Vally! DEFENELY! PLEASEEEEEEE!!!! XD XD XD

Suzushichan

I think that Onami would be best. ^_^ ........but what costume should I wear? I have too many to choose from...^^' anybody have any requests?

Rising Sun Creations :love: i get ALL MY ANIME THERE it is a GREAT store...i think i'll go there tomarow :bigtu:

LordofWickd4est
01-14-2004, 11:50 PM
It looks as if Mission Valley is going to be the location. Rising Sun Creations and O-nami both seem quite popular with the people I have talked to, not to mention there is an arcade there too. DDR, because even though I can only play acceptably well on light mode, I am the Vanity Angel.

The date will be Saturday, February 14. The time will be coming soon, but probably starting around noon. Once all details are finalized, I will edit them into the first post of the thread.

woo just finished my headpiece for the EGL costume, it's valentines based since I figure I could get away with hearts more often than xmas type stuffs ^_^; Whatcha think? I'm not sure if I should add some pink bows to the sides of it, i'm thinking of wearing this costume or either waitress ichigo, or mew mew battle ichigo ^_^; I dunno which yet ;_; I attached a picture of the headpiece, also should I add some white hearts to the jacket part of the costume too? I was thinking two giant hearts but have them be pockets.

This may sound like a silly question, but for the V-Day gathering, is cosplaying optional?

LordofWickd4est
01-21-2004, 01:48 AM
Yes, it is optional. I'm more interested in friends coming and hanging out than feeling they can't go because they don't have or don't want to cosplay at the time.

Reno_kun

Congrats on job Miaka. I'm still struggling with trying to find one. I'm terribly shy and nervous so I do horrible in interviews andcan't do any "sales" type jobs, blarr!

I've only met five of the people who might be going. Meeting new people is the whole idea. I really don't care if you have a costume or not. At a small gathering like this, I'm far more interested in the people as opposed to what they are wearing. There is plenty of time to only look at costumes when you are at a convention.This is about making friends and having fun. I wasn't even planning on wearing a costume originally, but I remembered I had a bunch of old goth gear, so I said: "Woohoo, J rock time". :)

Seriously though, I think that anybody who wants to come should do so. I just want to have a good headcount by the beginning of that week so I can make some reservations at O-nami.

Sexy(Leopard)- you still wanting to drive down together? (I know you mentioned to
me that you'd be more inclined to go if you weren't driving alone)

What do I wear? The only red thing I have is a red shirt (you'll like that one :P) Not sure what I'd wear on the bottom... maybe this time around I'll just get lil devil horns, not a full on costume, just something "cute".

SL- We can loook through my closet to decide what I wear on bottom :P

besides, if you go as Tifa, plenty of guys will be lookin' anyways! :) take your pic, and you've got a date! (and i don't think that it's gonna' be mostly couples anyways...i think that MOST (not all) the people that are bringing other people are just friends...) .......um......*thinks of something alse to say*.......Join us dammit!!! ><'

Damn, mainly couples? See.... I could probably get a date for normal Vday if I didn't go, so I can totally understand how SL feels about the whole driving 2 hours to go hang around a bunch of couples and eat overpriced food (she and I could do that only 10 mins away from us but for cheaper :P technically)
Hmmmm :\ (But I don't -want- to go on a date with my ex who's trying to get me back, but I don't want to watch a bunch of couples cause I'll feel lonely....)

That said, I would like to have as close to a final headcount as possible by next Sunday night(before midnight), so that I can make reservations with O-nami on Monday morning. If you are on the following list, you don't need tell me anything else, unless it is to update guests or to cancel. If you aren't on the list, and want to be, then put up a post declaring yourself plus any guests.

I took care of reservations with O-nami today. Everything is set there. I even let them know that it is largely a costume party, and they are cool with that:) They can accommodate for a increase of decrease in number of people in attendance as well.

Dinner reservations are for 5pm. Initial meetup is at 12pm. People who show up between those times will likely find us in the arcade. As I mentioned in a previous post, I will wait at the meeting point until 1pm or so. O-nami opens for dinner at 5pm, so we have instant pick at the good stuff. It costs $23.95 per person, plus drinks. Everybody be sure to bring around $27.00 to cover you food and drinks. If you are drinking sake, brink more. They total everything up on one check so money will be pooled and collected to pay for the meal.

Katchoo: If you want to bring an extra guest, go for it.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there.

I am busy on Saturday, March 13, but free for both of the Saturdays after that... unless the community-service club is doing something... :woah: Yeah. I'll stay in touch with you all. I would love to come to a gathering if I had the time. :)

What's White Day?
So long as it gives another chance for us to meet, I'll try to make it.

Again, I had a fun time, and the next time we meet I'll bring my camera. I also had no idea buffets can be so fun and loud (though I heard that that's normal at the Vegas ones)!
I also learned that food CAN bite back;)
Let's do that again, time, funds, and weather permitting!

I had a great time at this one. Those random pre-teens were so cute, and god were they funny. "What's going on? Why are you guys dressed up?" XD I wanna go again and see them be all like "WTF?" :rolleyes: And it was so cool to finally meet all of you. You're all so kick ass. ;_; I wish me + Spooky could've stayed and chit-chatted with you guys more at O-nami. We probably won't be at the picnic, but if there's another cosplay gathering HERE in San Diego, we'll be there. ^^
