New Member Meet & Greet

Are you new to the Real Time Lords? Have you been “lurking” for a while, but have been too nervous or busy to attend our events?

The New Member Meet & Greet is for you!

We’re now hosting regular ‘Meet and Greet’ events to give new(er) members or those who haven’t been to many of our events the opportunity to get your feet wet, without the fear of noisy bars or long waitlists. :-)

At these events, you’ll learn more about other members, their fandom and our group as a whole over a quiet, casual dinner in a low-key environment.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

For the Meet & Greet events, we ask that:

• All new and infrequent members try to attend at least one Meet & Greet after joining the group. (It’s not mandatory, but it will be a really good way to break the ice and learn more about the Real Time Lords and our members!)

• Core/Active members give new and newish members first dibs on RSVPs

• Core/Active members can attend, but only if the event is less than 50% full one week from the event date. I will send out an email a week prior to the event encouraging RSVPs.

• Due to the size of our group, individual checks at dinner may not be an option. PLEASE BRING CASH TO PAY FOR YOUR PART OF THE MEAL!

For questions, call Amanda at 949-466-8470, or contact me through Meetup.

We’ll see you there!

Garyoke! (and dinner)

Dinner starts at 8:00 pm and karaoke begins at 10:00 pm.  After 11 PM, the karaoke is only 21 and over.  Please bring cash to split the check as all orders at the table will be placed on one group bill.

If you plan to have alcoholic beverages, we ask that you ONLY order drinks at the bar and not on the group check. There is a full bar at the restaurant, so you can always use your own card to open a tab.

Please be aware that seating at the group table is reserved for those who RSVP.  Anyone without an RSVP is welcome to join us at this public event, but they will need to find their own table.
