    Pre/Post San Japan dance at The Bonham/Bottom?

    I love to go clubbing, and seeing as how we aren't far from the venue of choice, I figured I'd ask if anyone might wish to go. As to when? I'm not totally sure, because while I don't want to miss out on the dances that SJ will have Friday and Saturday, SJ dances are not the same as going clubbing (and don't offer drinks).

    So, if anybody is 18+ and interested, figured I'd post this now.

    Before San Japan:

    Friday of San Japan:

    Saturday of San Japan:

    Sunday of San Japan:

    Sexy time clubs, it seems. I'd be up for it, I love clubbing.

    It is just 1 one club. The Bonham Exchange is its official name, but many people call it by its slang name: "The Bottom"

    Um...well, The Bonham is what is commonly called a "gay club", which, to me, is definitely better than a "straight club" just because all the people there are, typically, more friendly and more willing to dance. Just personal observation.

    But, if you've ever been to a club of any sort, you'll find it familiar territory. It has 3 floors; the main floor which plays a lot of popular radio dance songs, the top floor which plays mostly rap and hip hop, and the bottom floor which plays mostly retro, techno, 80s/90s dance hits, etc.

    So, yeah, it's a place to dance, drink, maybe meet people, and overall have fun. It's extremely large, which is nice; plenty of leg room, not too much "I'm cramped in between people", unless it's a good night of course

    teru no hime - well, sexy time clubs could be a different kind of club too lol, but yes you could call it that. Sounds good, I haven't been clubbing in soooooo long, so I'm definitely looking forward to actually dancing WITH people, as opposed to dancing "beside" people, which is typically how techno dances are.

    mr12345 - Well hopefully this thread will aid in that pursuit. I'm pretty good at picking up women, but I don't think this is necessarily a case of X = Y. What I do know is that it is definitely easier to dance with a girl at a gay club than a straight one, hence the advantage for us straight males.

    If this winds being a thing I will let my gang know. I don't have a whole lot of friends to be perfectly frank, but of my friends, there are quite a number of females.

    Patches - You and me both, good sir/mam.

    Dezzy - ...*shrug* I find you either are or are not. It's like...if you've ever been to a (gay) club, know how to "dance" at a (gay) club, then you know what to expect from The Bonham. If that isn't your thing, I sincerely doubt going would change your opinion.

    Obviously I'm in no way trying to detract from SJ's Fri or Sat dance, but I know that Bonham is dead on Thursdays, and while I haven't been there on a Sunday, I'm assuming it'd be best that we go Fri or Sat. That, and I mean, we could always do, for example, Friday at Bonham and Saturday at SJ.

    I think it would be a great idea. I have friends that go to the Bonham. I think a pre con would be great. After the con a lot of my artist alley friends would have to pack up and haul their stuff home after the con. That might mean they would miss out. Maybe a weekend/ a day before, everyone can show up in cosplay and show off for the crowds there? I don't know, maybe get a few last minute attendees. But aside from promoting the con, just several friends hanging out getting ready for an awesome weekend would be a blast.

    Hmm...that's always an option too. I guess, when the time comes and we have a group, we can determine whether or not to have it before or during the con. But yeah, good suggestion.

    There is going to be plenty of raves and night time activities during the con. I think sticking to before or after. I would hope before because after, a lot of people will be exhausted and will have to pack up, go home, get ready for work, etc. But I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. I don't know for sure.

    Teru no hime - So was I, but I just remember the last time I went there on a Thursday...deeeeeeeaaaadddddd.... :/

    Chris - I'm still of the thought of doing this Friday, during San Japan, but given that I want to be involved in Yaoi Fest, I might take up the suggestion of doing this a week earlier, as like a pre-SJ social or what have you.

    A dead club? Sounds like what I'm used to up here :C Thursday would be the only day prior to the con that I could do it, since I don't live in San Antonio.... yet.

    Well, you could always try talking to one of the people going if they had available crash space.

    *sad face* Well, I really want there to be an option that suits every body, but Thursdays...like I said, not sure if that's a safe venture given how little people are likely to be there. But, I mean, I could be totally wrong and it might be poppin' due to the summer crowds.

    Sorry to hear you're used to dead clubs. I haven't even been to a club since I moved, and haven't been to a club in general since Mizuumi Con of last year :O

    I would, but then I don't have any way down there. My parents pay the insurance on my car and thus I can't take it out of town on threat of losing it.

    My parents are... an interesting kind of strict. I wouldn't be opposed to going DURING the con, but I'd have to see the schedule first.

    There is a way to make polls on these forums. It might be a good idea to go ahead and take a poll. Then it would be easier to get a track of how many people would be interested in what options. I think that could be easier then keeping track of all the posts.
