Meet & Greet Meetup... Friday, June 19th @ FunkyTown

Photobucket


It's time to get funky once again so we are going to head back out to FunkyTown for another great POF meet & greet event! So make plans now to come out and join us and make some new friends, meet some familiar faces and help celebrate the June birthdays. These events are a great way to celebrate your birthday and you know POFer's are always looking for something to celebrate. Anyone and everyone are always welcome to come out and join in on the fun.

FunkyTown is the best mix in town! You can party with old/young, fat/thin, guys/girls, every combo possible. Fun to go alone or bring a group. The zoo is where you go to watch the animals... FunkyTown is where you go to watch the people. This place is the bomb! Especially, if you like the retro type music of the 70's and 80's. They serve appetizer type food, and it's pretty damn good. The drinks are reasonably priced, and they are not skimpy on the alcohol. You get your monies worth. They have a "Stairway to Heaven" area which is balcony area that over looks the dance floor. The dance floor is huge and has two go-go style cages for you dancers to strut your stuff in. Two bars... lots of bartenders and waitresses. Everyone fits in at FunkyTown. It's a really great place to party. Therefore, start making your plans to come out and join us. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come out and join us to have a few drinks, dance their asses off and partake in lots of laughing. So grab your friends and head on out and join us for some fun. Relax, mingle and make some new friends. No pressure, no expectations.

View Larger Map
You'll end up turning onto Blue Pkwy Drive off of E. 63rd St. and then follow it around to the Funky Town entrance. Use Google Maps to map directions!


Seating: We have 75 seats reserved under the Plenty Of Fish name and our tables will be marked with a sign that says either POF or Plenty Of Fish! The reserved seats are only held until 9pm at which time the signs are picked and anyone can grab them. So come early and help save tables/seats. FunkyTown can only hold 600 people maximum so get there early! Bring cameras if you have them and take lots of pictures, so we can post them and show everyone all the fun, they are missing!

Cost: $6.00 cover charge! Tell the cashier you're with POF and receive $1 of your cover charge. This is a cash only club, no credit cards and no tabs. There is an ATM machine on site if you need cash once inside! FunkyTown cards everyone so don’t forget to bring that ID with you!

Dress Code: No hats except cowboy hats, no jeans with holes in them... you know, the ones with big holes in the knees or on the ass that the women like to wear, you can wear sports shirts/garments as long as there are "no" number's on them, all men's shirts must have sleeves and no gang related attire allowed.

NOTE A: FunkyTown is now a non-smoking club. To accommodate the smokers, FunkyTown has a smoking area. They are opening up the patio doors back by the pool tables to allow the smokers the ability to go outside and smoke as needed.

NOTE B: The doors open at 8pm and the music starts around 9:15pm. The 8pm to 9:15pm time frame is the perfect time for you to meet new people, make new friends and dancing buddies, before it gets wild and crazy.

NOTE C: The ultimate goal here is to meet and make some new friends and to just have fun. Keep an open mind; first impressions are not always correct. Be prepared to approach the group. We are generally very friendly to new people, but we can't always tell who is there to meet/join the group. (Sometimes it is easier to come with a member who has been to an event before, or if you are uncomfortable approaching the group, approach an individual who will help introduce you to the group.) You can always approach the event organizer "Host" and ask them for help. We usually have people that will introduce you around if you want or need that. These events are for the enjoyment of all POF members and their guests. This is not intended to be a hook up meet even though that could happen for some. And again you must remember, these meet and greet events are what "YOU" make them. "YOU" have to take some initiative and say hi and make yourself known to people. So when you come, look for tables marked Plenty of Fish, say hi and grab a seat. Be yourself and have tons of fun, that is all we ask. You don't even have to be a member of POF to join us... ever. So grab a friend or two and come on out.

NOTE D: EVENT SIGN-UP IS NOT MANDATORY, HENCE POF MEMBERS AND/OR ALL THEIR GUESTS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US. IF YOU WANT TO COME OUT BUT DON'T WANT TO SIGN UP THEN DO IT. EVERYONE AND ANYONE IS WELCOME, SIGNED UP OR NOT, MEMBER OR NOT! The sign up thing is just to help us get an approximate number of how many might come and how many seats to reserve or try to save.

NOTE E: Seating update.... We had 100 but now we only have 75. There was some confusion which caused over booking and we had to give up a few seats. There will be some other big groups out here this night. Parents without partners will out this night and I think they said two high schools having their 35th reunion will be here this night. So this should be a nice busy Friday night at FunkyTown...

People are welcome to discuss this event and post any relevant comments/suggestions and or ideas they may have. Constructive comments are welcome. Bashing, insulting, or slamming the event or other posters will not be tolerated and those posts will be deleted ASAP. Thank you.

I'm Baaaaack ! On May 29th I get my Saturday and Sunday's off again and I'm finished with my hiatus from the world of POF, so I have the next two FunkyTown meetups posted. Start getting the word out and let's pack this place! Anyone go to the May meetup, get a head count from FunkyTown? Just curious what kind of turn out we had...

Wow this is my birthday. A friend of mine is taking me canoeing or else I probably be there and we would have one gigantic party. If things change there for sure I will be there but be prepared to party hardy. I enjoy meeting up at this location and last time the waitress came to our table more then the last time which was never. They got better at serving us and I appreciate that.

I don't know the exact head count but not too many people were there. I think it was due to the weather and/or Royals playing that night even though they had rain delayed for awhile but they got a very very late start.

It was a very small turn out at the last meet up. They only gave about 50 discounts at the door, but there was probably close to 75 pof people there. That means there was probably about 25 people that did not tell them they were with pof at the door to get their discount. A lot of people had graduation parties this week is the response I was getting on the emails. The weather did not help either. Looking for a huge turnout now that we have the Gummi attraction factor working again. Home all is well with ya Gummi ?

All is well here... no worries . Plus the Royals were in town and had a 2 hour delay. That weekend turned out to be a bad weekend for an event. Hopefully we'll do better this time around...

How do we find the POF group?


We have 100 seats reserved under the Plenty Of Fish name and our tables will be marked with a sign that says either POF or Plenty Of Fish! The reserved seats are only held until 9pm at which time the signs are picked and anyone can grab them. So come early and help save tables/seats.

Slowly but surly the sign ups are climbing. It's still a ways out but it will be here before we know it. Keep spreading the word and inviting anyone and everyone you know to come out and join us. Hit up the new members area and invite the newbies... the more the merrier .

PLEASE READ NOTE E IN THE MAIN POSTING!

Here is a major update for this night... Do to some confusion, 3 groups got booked this night and they over booked. So we had to give up 25 of our seats which isn't a big deal, but...... Parents without partners will be out here this night and there is also going to be two 35 year class reunion's here this night. So this should be a nice busy night with lots of single people. The main thing is to get there early! The doors open at 8pm and I recommend getting there by 7:30 to 7:40 so you can get in line and not have to wait to long to get in. And remember, the reserved seating is only held until like 9pm at which time it is first come first serve. So get there early and help us hold our tables.

This is going to be a really busy and fun night at FunkyTown. With the two 35 year class reunions going on and with them having reserved 150 seats, I am expecting a little old crowd so it should be a really good time... Keep spreading the word and inviting people on the new member list. It's a good way to make them aware and to get them out and active early .

This is the perfect event for our members in the 45 +/- to 55+/- age range. With the two high schools having their 35th year reunions there, there will be a lot of people around the age of 53 there. Add our group and the parents with out partners and this is looking to be one fun and crazy night...

Here is another idea and a new one. The site has added a new feature called date night, check it out... The idea is to email everyone that posts they want a date next Friday, the link and an invite to join us if they don't end up with a date and want to get out of the house...

It's not to late to make plans to join us. I highly recommend that anyone that will be attending an event for the first time or have never been to FunkyTown before, that they get there as early as possible, like 8pm when the doors open. This is the perfect time to get in, find our tables and meet some of us before the music starts. Once that music starts around 9:15pm, everyone will be moving around mingling and dancing and it gets tougher to figure out where we are. If you get there and can't find us. Find Gary, who works for FunkyTown or ask the cashier for help pointing us out and they'll help you find us.

Looks like after the Royals game if I can get in the door without a long wait... I may just be there.. I have taken a bit of a break from going out lately and feel like I need to get my groove on.. :D

Sounds like with all the groups there this friday might be the night not to miss.. Sure hope the line isnt crazy when I get there..

oh and LET's GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!

Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good today. High of around 92 and an over night low around 71 with a chance of some showers here and there. Get out and have some fun before it gets so hot that you don't want to leave the house .
