So about a week ago I posted about the possibility of a meetup at a Karaoke Bar. http://www.karaokemelody.com/index.html And I got some positive responses. So I am now turning that idea into an action.
Now I am still deciding on a date. I really want to hold it Sept. 8, 2007 which is the Saturday after labor day (mostly because I can't tend the meet-up at DragonCon) but alot more of the lolita's seemed to think it would be better to have it for AWA. Which I have no problem with its just that space will be limited, and while yes it will be a bigger meetup as more lolita's will be in town, the biggest room only holds like 20 people max. So there would have to be an attendance cap on the meetup. ALSO I would need to know before I reserve the room how many people are positive they want to attend as I would not like to reserve the biggest room and have only 10 people show up.
Now on to pricing. The place is open on Saturdays from 5pm to 4am. It is $8 per person per hour I was thinking maybe hold the room for 3 or 4 hours so the meetup would be from 7pm-11pm. So if its 3 hrs the total per person would be $24 or if 4 it would be $32 plus whatever else you spend on food and drink. Is that too expensive?
Now incase you couldn't tell this is my first time trying to coordinate a meet up, so please any suggestions would be great. I mostly want to hold this as I am new to Atlanta and would like to meet some new people and possible new friends.
Also I understand that the location of the meet up might be far for some So I would offer my services to pick up any lolita who lives in the Smyrna/Marrietta area.
EDIT: Even though it doesn't say so on the website the karaoke bar is Japanese Owned and does carry songs in Japanese, Korean, Spanish and 4 other languages.
