I can has Halloween Party, Plz?
Hi, everyone.

After seeing the display of Halloween candy already out (and purchasing more sour straws than I can eat in four years)  I wanted to have a party. So you are all invited to my LJ  Monster Mash from noon Oct.31 to noon on Nov.1.

Costumes are not require, but are encouraged. I think I'll be dusting off the old fairy wings.

See ya there,
maenaine

"It's the end of the world as we know it!"
Hey, Mods!

I propose an 'End of the World' party for the Friday before the release of Deathly Hallows. One last chance to get our suspicion and theory-filled geek on!

Sound like a plan to anyone else?

Gatheration spirit
Hello! (^_^)

just wanted to invite everyone to my LJ Holday party...the theme is a secret...you'll have to swing by and say hello and have a few sweeties and spirits. We've got all the Holiday tunes playing. Drop a dime in the jukebox and pick your favorite tune to play.

PARTY!
Hey, everyone. It's greenfireangel. Join me today on my personal journal to celebrate the holidays.

Come on over and help yourself to some snacks and a drink. Frank, the bartender, can make any drink you'd like. There are bon-bons and other assorted candies on the chocolate butler on display near the tree. Enjoy!

Party!
maenaine mentioned something while we were motoring down the highway about wishing she could have an online Christmas party and I was all, "Dude, you should totally use my community!" Well, mine and Vesica's. Anyway, the point is: There's a party this Friday, December 22. Short notice, I know, but it'll still be fun. Especially since maenaine is hosting, so it won't be left up to my shoddy memory to get things going.

Yay, party!

And...Scene!
Thus ends our last party for this year! Hope everyone had a good time and made some new friends!

Right now, our next party is scheduled to be sometime in March, but Myn and I may get antsy and move that up. Also, I would love to write up a little "About LJ Cocktail Parties" blurb suitable for reposting and see if we can't get some more friends of friends to join and host parties. It's nice to be able to participate some rounds as a party-goer only.

Fare thee well all and see you in 2007!!

LJ Cocktail Party for October
So mynuet and I keep doing polls and it takes forever to plan a party...and yeah.

After the last poll, we totally forgot we were even doing a party.

SO...our second (and possibly last) party of 2006 will run from Noon on Sunday October 29th until Noon on Tuesday October 31st. As you might guess, they will probably be Halloween parties.

For 2007, I propose right now that we do a party in March, June, September, and early December.

I will be back later to remind you all about our impending party and post the "Let's Get These Parties Started" post.

Next party
Poll #810449 Tiebreaker

So which is it?

Sep 1
4(40.0%)
Sep 22
6(60.0%)



On the one hand, the 22 gives us more time to plan, on the other hand, the 1st is now and it's Immie's birthday.

The Next LJ Cocktail Party
The people have spoken!

And they asked for the next LJ Cocktail Party to be Noon on Friday May 26th - Noon Sunday May 28th. (I am really really sorry txteva, but the numbers have spoken.)

So...

* This time around parties will be 48 hours. To make things a little easier, one of the Mods will post a "Party Start" post at Noon on both Friday and Saturday, allowing people to link active parties in the comments. If you want to run a party during the full 48 hours, comment both times.

* Check out past parties for theme ideas or ways to get people talking.

* If you like, pimp this community and the whole party idea. Parties are fun!!

Anything I am forgetting?

If not, see you all next Friday!

One Last Poll...
First, we had quite a few requests to have parties run for 48 hours, rather than 24, for those that work over the weekends. Obviously, no one is expected be around for the whole time. I assume we can just include when we will be around in our party posts.

Second, we are evenly split between the two weekends in May that got the most votes. Which one works best?

Poll #730390 Choosing a May Date

What weekend works best for you?

Friday May 19th - Sunday May 21st
4(28.6%)
Friday May 27 - Sunday May 28th
10(71.4%)


Side note: I am an idiot. That second choice should read 'Friday May 26th - Sunday May 28th'. *sigh*

Third, there was some mention of pimping - the parties, this community. I say, have at it! It's been a while since we have done one of these and we are not terribly picky about members. If you have friends to recommend and can vouch that they are nice people and not spammers or trolls, why not?

Welcome to 2006!
Here we are in May and we haven't had a single party yet this year!

Many thanks to txteva who poked me and asked, "Yo, we partyin' at all anymore?"*.

* Please note, she did not actually say this. I am paraphrasing.

So...Poll Time! Do we party? When do we party? And who is bringing the chips and dip this time, because gosh darn it, I have brought them the last 3 times. :P

Party Time!
It's Party Day!

Online parties will, as usual, run from Noon today until Noon tomorrow unless you as host decide otherwise. Pick a theme, a discussion topic or just invite people in for some chat.

If you are hosting a party - please link your party post in the comments.

Let's get this party started!
