    Personally I don't really want to wear a costume to this. Don't get me wrong - I usually look for any excuse to throw on one of my costumes, but my Aurra Sing body paint is a bit too messy for gameworks I think.

    I'm dressing pretty casual to this thing, SC. Jeans, sweatshirt, baseball hat....u know the drill! I'd like to keep this as loose and informal as possible.

    Maybe I'll come... Great Lakes Crossing is kinda far away, though.

    So we'll see. ;) I've never been there anyway.

    Costume? Nah...not for me.

    Personally, I think I would look pretty stupid dressed as an Ewok. ;)

    Just realized this thing is on a Saturday, but the 9th and 10th isn't my weekend off, not off until the following weekend. Even though, I don't even know if I could stake claim to membership of a group in Detroit, since I'm 90 miles away, not exactly a resident of those parts, heh. :) Anyhow, have fun you guys..hope you all have a good time :)

    I just found out that my pagan group is having the Candlemas celebration that night... Already promised to go to that. :(

    Oh well. I'm sure if this goes well there'll be a second meeting. :)

    Update time:

    I went to Gameworks today and learned a few things you all should know:

    No reservations are accepted for the restaurant area.

    Restaurant part is open until 11, but I assume the bar and arcade areas are open later than that on Saturday nights.

    We can reserve space in the restaurant under a party package they offer. One includes the following: $24.95 gets you 3 slices of pizza, a beverage, a tossed salad, and a one-hour game card. That is only for parties of 10 or more.

    Here are my thoughts: I am leaning away from the party package, since the cost might be kinda steep for some of us, especially the younger crowd. I thought having the freedom for people to choose what they want to do might be better (just my opinion). If people want to play games, they can purchase a game card of almost any value. They wouldn't pay for something they won't use. Plus we'd have the freedom to get whatever food we want, but to be honest, the food off the menu is below average. And of course there's the bar :)

    What thoughts do you guys have? Would you be interested in getting that party pack? Again, we'd need a minimum of 10 attendees for that. The best way we can reserve enough space for seating in the restaurant is for a couple of us to get there early and save whatever space the servers can manage for us. JMT and I will prolly get ther early and take care of that. Hope this info is useful, and feel free to discuss what wishes you guys have for this. I don't want to decide anything for anyone without input. Thanks and be good ;)

    I used to go there every payday Friday w/ some people from work. There was usually 12-17 of us. There is enough room for us, especially if we get there B4 8pm....

    I'm not teally interested in the party package,either.I'd probably never even use the game card.I like the idea of everyone just being able to order/do what they want,it sounds like it would be more convenient for everybody.

    Also,if you guys need someone else to get there earlier than 8,I can do that.My e-mail address is in my profile,just let me know.

    Where is everyone?? Our poor little forum gets so little traffic.

    Anyway, I'd be glad to show up early to help save seats. What time, do you think? And, I'm out on the party package, as well.

    Regards,
    M.

    Man, my February weekends are booked.:(
    This would have been a great way to meet other Star Wars nuts from our little corner of the galaxy. I'll keep a lookout for any future get-togethers at Gameworks (or similarly close places)! You guys have a blast!

    Same here, sword! :)

    I will be getting there at 7:30 to make sure we have table space reserved. If anyone's looking for me, I'll be wearing a green sweatshirt and black jeans.

    Hope to see everyone there!

    Have fun! I almost got to come because my dad cancelled his trip, but then I got sick. The same thing happened when we were supposed to go to a U2 concert in Chicago. I have the worst luck. Will someone please post as soon as possible with what you all talked about? Also, if anyone happens to take a pic with a digital camera a post or e-mail would be nice for those of us who couldn't make it ;)

    Man, I knew I should check in here more often! I'm in Clarkston (29F)...and I could've made it to Gameworks with no problem.

    Could someone e-mail me (the_huntress_diana@yahoo.com) when things start to pick up again? I'd really appreciate it. :)
