I take back what I said about 15+ being the norm now. I underestimated how much the movies mattered to the attendance rate, since I myself do this for the social aspect of the meetup.
Regardless, eight people (one person didn’t want to be photographed) is a little easier to manage, especially when plans go awry. I’d initially planned on going to Pokéworks or Izakaya Mew, but the former was closed, and the latter had a long wait. We ended up going to Woorijip instead.
$7.50 for a tiny water bottle, sushi, and fried chicken isn’t too bad. Definitely not a top-choice place for food, but not a bad backup plan for when things are closed and you’re on a budget. I’ll probably try another place if I’m down in the area again though.
No midnight crowd tonight–I’m a bit busier these days. We stayed out until around 11:30 PM or so.
Overall, the night was fun! I thought the movie was alright, and several members really enjoyed it!
