Mitsuwa meetup in January 2009!


So...
t3h_janitor_jim and I would like to start off the new year with making a  meetup in Mitsuwa (Edgewater,nj). Its up to everyone if they like to do more than going to Mitsuwa. Nearby, there's a Movie theater, golf center and shopping plazas (Target, Old navy, TJ Maxx, etc.)  This meetup is ONLY for lolitas and NOT casual clothes, visual kei's and other type of fashion. If you are not sure what type of clothes to wear, or if you are  bringing a friend, your friend must follow the lolita guidelines. We have choosen the date  to have this meetup on Saturday, January 10, 2009. As for the time, We like to start the meetup At 12Noon. Please gather inside to the side door entrance of the food court. click here for visual aid.  For those who are coming from NYC, there is a mitsuwa shuttle bus from NY ports authority and it comes every 45minute to an hour. for more info on transportation, please take a look at mitsuwa website. Also, if  you are going to be late, please let me know ahead of time or call/text my cell (PM me for my #).  I will make a final post for reminder and what other stuff we can do after mitsuwa.  :)

update!: Since not everyone replied on what to do after mitsuwa, we will keep it just Mitsuwa hangout then.:) As for the time, anyone is allowed to leave at any time. I believe Ericka, myself and few others will stay until 5pm? See you there!

Finalize Mitsuwa Meetup for Saturday 9/20!


This meetup is open for Anyone who dresses the lolita style, related, or not, as long you respect everyone and do not cause any problems throughout the hangout. RAIN or SHINE event, so please be aware.

Please try to be at  inside the front entrance of NYC Ports Authority(625 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10018, also located between 42nd st and 8th ave.) at 4pm and then latest 4:20pm. Also, do not block the entrance, try to stay in the side and visible so i can spot you. Then we will take NJ transit Bus# 158 to Fort Lee, the bus departure is located in Gate 202 (door 1), I hope we can make it to the 4:30pm bus, if not the next one is at 5:10pm. If you prefer to take a bus earlier than 5:10 then there is a shuttle that goes straight to mitsuwa and the bus departs at 4:45pm, however its not free, for one way its $3.(i'll discuss this when we meet at ny ports auth.) Once we get in the bus we should arrive mitsuwa like 5pm.  From there we could go as a group and go together around (btw the plaza is pretty small so its not really easy to get lost) or flee and go wherever you like. what i mean by this is because some might be hungry and they would like to go to the foodcourt first, and the others might not be hungry and prefer to go to the stores first. We can also discuss this once we arrive at mitsuwa.:) Anyone is welcome to leave anytime they like, i know a few of you have to leave early, and i can give you options on what bus to take to ge to manhattan. just be aware that the buses doesn't run every 15-30mins. Most likely it runs 40mins to an hour. Also mitsuwa store and foodcourt closes at 9pm!

Okay now for the money part..
if we take the nj transit bus to mitsuwa and back its FREE! as long you have your highschool ID or college id and there is no expiration date visible AND this coupon: http://www.njtransit.com/images/student_coupon.jpg
if you prefer to take the shuttle bus straight to mitsuwa its $3 one way.( the shuttle bus cuts half the nj transit bus time)
for the food, if you like a meal in the foodcourt (like a small appetizer and entree and maybe a light dessert), the cheapest is i believe $7.50

I highly suggest to exchange phone numbers with me, just in case if you are running late and/or if you can't find me in Mitsuwa.

For those who will be in the Photoshoot that day including myself, please let me know. This maybe be a problem, so the time i choosen and explained in this post is NOT 100%accurate.

If you have any other questions, please respond ASAP! this event is in 3 days! or Instant message me on my AOL/AIM account: reggiealways ( my account is always online)

Mitsuwa Meetup updated: 9/16/08

I will post more details on this meetup but right now i can give you a general idea.

for college and high school students and alumni's, if you still have your college or highschool id and doesn't have an expired date or not visible in the front of the card, you guys can ride NJ transite Train and bus for FREE! its only between these dates you are allowed to ride for free and Unlimited, Monday 9/15- Sunday 9/21.
Therefore the bus to mitsuwa from Nj or NYC port authority is FREE. :)  BTW you need to bring this coupon http://www.njtransit.com/images/student_coupon.jpg  and your college or high school  id to ride free any nj transit bus or train.

Since a couple of people already responded and might be a problem to put a certain date, therefore i like to make a poll to see which date and time is best for you. Please respond No later than 9/15
:::: VOTING is CLOSED:::
here are the date and time option:
A. Friday(9/19) between 1pm-6pm
B  Saturday(9/20) between 11am-4pm

C Saturday(9/20) Between 4pm-8pm
D, Sunday (9/21) Between 1pm-7pm
-Oh and the time i choose in all the days doesn't mean it has to start and end, its just a time i'm free and we can arrange a time between those options.

THE FINAL DATE WILL BE SATURDAY(9/20) AFTER 4PM!


I was thinking of meeting everyone in NYC port authority inside near the Main entrance  and leave from there to mitsuwa about half and hour after the settle meet and greet. The bus ride from NY ports authority to mitsuwa is about 30mins and since the plaza is small i think 3 hours is good enough chat,eat,shop and look around? yes? so the total amount of hours we need for the whole trip is  4 hours or possibly less. Afterwards we can hang around the city or do something adventerous in NJ?
Is anyone up for this meetup??

Please keep a lookout on the final plan, which i will def. post no later than Thursday.(9/18) .

THANK YOU FOR ALL WHO RESPONDED.:)
