NYC ONTD Avengers assemble (part deux)  


OK kiddies, going by the first round, it looks like we've basically decided on 2D, between 12:00-5:00PM, somewhere in midtown, and yes of course shawarma/other nerdy things after [optional, obvs]. BUT we still need a date! So plz vote (if you just found out about this/didn't vote the first, feel free to join in!):

June 16 is a Saturday; once again I cannot type. *facepalm*

If it's still pretty split, should we just do two separate meetups on the two highest-voted dates?

No, that's crazypants; just do one and people can deal

Yes, it's not like we have anything in our lives besides Avengers right now
12 (63.2%)


(Incidentally, are there any dudes in this group at all? I just tend to assume that ONTD is all ladies. All are welcome, of course! I'm just curious. ;) Going to the Marvel Marathon kinda made me go "...oh, right, sometimes boys like comics too." Tumblr has warped my sense of reality in so many ways.)

EDIT: OK, so the plan is SATURDAY, 16 JUNE at 2:40 PM at AMC Empire 25 (off Times Square). Here is the Fandango link [if it says "no longer available," just select 2:40 again]; shawarma location TBD. Come & join the madness! \o/

Honest Opinion
Is it totally weird that I'm contemplating taking the Amtrak from Boston for a day trip to hang out at the meetup? I've been to NYC several times though never on my own to just meet up with people for a movie (sounds like the beginning of a CSI episode). Just wanted to see if its totally crazy or maybe its just me...

Re: Honest Opinion
I've always been paranoid about randomly meeting strangers but it's not like we're going to sharing a hotel room or going off to some where secluded. So I think it'll be alright :P

Any Saturday is the best day for myself. Time and location work superbly well for myself, so woohoo!

Other than that, we're getting this train rolling, woohoo!!
rosadinarosadina on May 28th, 2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
So... we've never talked before and I only lurk on ONTD but meeting up with people who like the movie as much as I do sounds fun! Will there be other people who are lurkers there or will everyone know each other? If the former, is it ok if I join? Thanks!
Jamiejamamamie on May 28th, 2012 11:58 pm (UTC)
I only know a few people from recognizing their usernames in the party posts so you wont be all alone in not knowing anyone!

Perhaps we can have the most voted date be the first choice and the second most popular as a backup in case the weather is horrible?

BBbostongirl2003 on May 29th, 2012 12:33 am (UTC)
Sorry if you get notices about changes to the poll-I realized that I don't have class on June 16 so I switched my best day to that one.
foreverrhapsodyforeverrhapsody on May 29th, 2012 12:36 am (UTC)
I said June 16th just because I'd like to go as soon as possible, but I'm honestly open to any date.

We should make ONTD/Avengers themed name tags to wear so we recognize each other. Maybe have Avengers-themed jackals? That's the official ONTD mascot, right?
BBbostongirl2003 on May 29th, 2012 12:48 am (UTC)
Rose?
June 16 is listed as a Saturday and a Sunday, bb.

I picked June 16th because it's the earliest and I can't wait. `

I can't actually be 100% sure--I have two bridal showers coming up (for myself--spoiled girl!) in June/July, and one is a surprise, and the other hasn't been nailed down. Whatever date/s we choose, I'll make it work!

Your icon is a thing of beauty. I need me one that has a quote about the monkeys.

I chose June 16th since it's the earliest. We have to meetup before the fangirling simmers down!
Alyshamoonbunnii on June 3rd, 2012 12:11 pm (UTC)
My sister (a fellow ONTDer) and I will be in NYC on holiday for the June 30 and July 7 weekends, so we'll definitely be there if it turns out to be one of those dates!

Yay! So excited! I need an Avengers icon now...or just shop Thor's head over Shatner or something.

I've got rehearsal for a bunch of the suggested dates (all the July saturdays), but i"ll try to make whatever I can - rehearsals only go 4-5 hours so they might not even conflict depending on the showing we go to, or I'll come geek out afterwards or something.

YAY!
extraordinary machine.la_petite_singe on June 7th, 2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
I think you have a privacy thingy on your messages, so I'll just tell ya here--I think we've landed on June 16th, but I am totally down for doing a second one on July 7th if people are into that. More info, including showtimes, coming soon. Let me know if you're in! :)

BBbostongirl2003 on June 6th, 2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
bb, when can we say June 16th definitively (no I am absolutely not pushing for it because it's the only Saturday I can do :p)?
extraordinary machine.la_petite_singe on June 6th, 2012 11:10 pm (UTC)
I was gonna send out a message tonight or tomorrow--not everyone who voted the first time voted in this one, but maybe they dropped out, IDK. The 16th seems like the clear winner, but should we do another on July 7th...? I'll ask what people think, I guess.
hesreallydivine: pic#117550449hesreallydivine on June 12th, 2012 01:13 pm (UTC)
Has there been final plans made yet? My inbox is totally erased and I don't remember whether there was a message about it or not : /.
Either way, I'm getting super excited for this!
extraordinary machine.la_petite_singe on June 12th, 2012 01:22 pm (UTC)
We're still on for the 16th, this Saturday (and possibly another on the 7th if people want it...?) I'll send out a message late tonight/early tomorrow morning with the showtime--the internet only posts weekend showtimes on the preceding Wednesday, which is very annoying. :P But I will check the second they're up & send out info, Fandango links, etc. :)

The "no longer available" link really freaked me out.
