August LA Guild Gathering
Posted 04 August 2004 - 01:14 PM
There is a place in the Universal City Walk called Jillian's. They have Food, beverages and Bowling. I'm not much of a bowling fan but my wife's co-workers decided to get together there last night and I went along. I actually had fun. (I haven't been bowling in.. well, a long time)
If I make a reservation of a party of 10 or more we can get the "VIP Party"
The VIP party consists of:
2 hours of Free Bowling
A starter tray of Chips and Salsa
A tray of Vegetables and Dill Dip
and a starter tray of Jillian's Two Alarm Wings.
Parking is $8
Alcohol, Beverages, tax and gratuities are NOT included.
(The VIP party value is approximately $350)
The downside is that these VIP parties are from Sunday through Wednesday only.
I have the Gathering listed for Saturday August 21 on the Guild web site but If we want the VIP party, it would have to be between the 22nd and the 25th.
Of course I have to see if there is room for us there on whatever day we choose.
How does Sunday the 22nd work for you all?
It could be in the afternoon or evening.
Cast your vote here on the forum for the date AND time and I'll see about making a reservation

Bowling is a good idea, look forward to seeing it come together.

I totally understand how you feel. I hate paying for parking too! (That's why I love burbank... free parking) I said that to my wife that night but she said, well, we are getting 2 hours of free bowling/shoes and free chips/salsa/vege platter and wings. The free bowling makes up for the cost of parking.
We went on a Tuesday and it wasn't that crowded. The bowling is off to the right from the entrance from the parking ramp. So it's close. Now, I don't know what a Sunday would be like. I'm assuming that it's slow for them since they are offering free food and free bowling.
There is also a bowling alley in Burbank near Glendale. It's close to the park. It looked like a big place with lots of free parking and no tourists. I've never been there. As a matter of fact Tuesday was the first time I've bowled since I moved here 4 years ago.
If you guys want to go to a different place that's ok with me too. I'm easy.

Should we make it for Saturday the 21st then? What time?
We can see what kind of turn out we have, then if we want we can try one of the other places the next time around?

There is a bowling alley in Burbank called Pickwick.
I'm fairly certain that the parking is Free. (It is Burbank afterall)
So if no one has any objections lets plan on meeting at Pickwick at say, 6:30 or 7pm this Saturday, August 21

In the interest of disclosure, I was just at a bowling party at Lucky Strikes, and they validate for the Hollywood & Highland parking garage: $2 for 4 hours. However, the bowling rates are pretty high (it's the babe-factor surcharge, I think!)

Is this just for sled owners or can one who admires sleds come out to play?
I live in Burbank.

Now that's an understatment... Ted would not be happy...
It is a sad, sad day in the proud history of the camera department when free parking wins out over babes.
