bon odori and alice's soude chocolat extravaganza

          Okay, I've been thinking about my proposed plans for a birthday-thingie and the Bon Odori festival at Mitsuwa. I think it might be neat to have a whole weekend of lolita-ness activities--because it's fun that way. n_n

          There won't be any kind of formal sign-up for these events, but I'd loooove to know who's coming~ If anyone doesn't have my cell-phone number, in the event they need to contact me, email me at sweetiesugar (at) gmail (dot) com.

          BON ODORI FESTIVAL
DATE: Saturday, August 4th
LOCATION: Mitsuwa Marketplace
TIME: 12:00pm - 8:00pm

          This is a LOT of fun~! I've attended for a few years, and there is lots of inexpensive food, cute little fair games, usually some cultural presentations like taiko drumming and karate presentations. There's also a ramune drinking contest--anyone think they could win?

          WARNING: PARKING IS TERRIBLE!! Just keep this in mind~! If anyone wanted to ride Metra on the Northwest Union Pacific line, I could pick them up at the Mount Prospect station. Due to the parking situation, I plan to either arrive early or persuade a family member to drop me off.

          We don't really have to have a formal meet-up time for this, I think~ People can trickle in as they see fit--but if you show up too late, you'll miss some fun things~! It really is worth staying for the whole thing, though, because watching the traditional dancing at the end is REALLY neat. (I'd love to participate, but this is the closely-coordinated dancing-stuff, and I am too afraid to go to the practices they have during July.)

          Here is the official press release.

          ALICE'S CHOCOLATE SODA EXTRAVAGANZA
DATE: Sunday, August 5th
LOCATION: Ghiradelli's Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop, at the Water Tower
TIME: 1:30pm

          A belated birthday celebration for me~ Hooray~! n_n We will meet at the Ghiradelli's on Michigan Avenue, just behind the Water Tower. After ice cream and general happy deliciousness, we can have a fairly un-structured wandering of the Michigan Avenue area~ n_n Maybe some shopping-ness? Confuse the clerks~!

          If you are a person who needs to have real food before you eat desserts, please eat lunch beforehand~! There is no lunch-eating planned into this excursion.

          Please be prompt, as ice cream cannot really wait for people to arrive, and you cannot really just lounge in the ice cream shop without ordering something. If you show up early, I will be waiting in the little park around the Water Tower~! ...Probably chasing some pigeons.

          PLEASE NOTE: This is not a "OMG BRING ME PRESENTZ!!111!" party. e_e;; I don't really deserve presents and shopping for me can be really awkward.
