Songfight Live PDX -- Extracurriculars

Post by anti-m » Wed Aug 12, 2015 1:30 pm

Hey all!

I want to be a good host, and set up some times for people to interact and hangout outside of the official shows, but I'm having a tough time gauging interest in the various items on offer. I'm going to start a running sign up for "various stuff wot we can do" outside of the shows. If you and your entourage want to be included in any of the proposed activities, LMK.

Also, by far the easiest way for me to communicate with you all would be through teh Googs. So, again, pm me your gmail if you want to be added to the hangout. I'll try to keep this front page up-to-date.

FUN STUFF:
  • Anyone interested in a pre-show Thursday meetup? Happy hour sort of thing?
    EDIT: Let's call it Gigantic Brewing at 8:00pm. They don't have food, but you can order pizza or byof there. We can discuss Oaks park!

If it actually rains, I have half a mind to organize an early chanterelle hunt, but that might be a little too obscure a pursuit for this crowd.

I'm up for everything but I already have plans for Sunday afternoon so I can't make it to karaoke at that time. Hopefully some other karaoke will happen though coz I love me some karaoke. :)

I'm up for meeting up on Thursday. I can't do Sunday karaoke :( as my job is going to be flying me out of Portland on Sunday to go play teacher all next week.

Oh hey, Oaks Park is running, isn't it? Maybe I can coax Kimi into visiting the Wurli with y'all on Thursday (though not skating, alas). Hard maybe.

I'm interested in Sunday karaoke. And I might bring a few friends.

Django and I want to do Ground Kontrol on Sunday. We need to get the games in before 500pm, because Django is not quite 8 yet, and it's 21 and over after 500pm.

Is the karaoke still planned for 2, or was it going to happen some other time? My existing plans are at 2 PM but I'd love to do more stuff after that. Also I'm hearing rumors of there being a live-band karaoke thing tomorrow night.
