Salty Cupcakes: SG Thursdays in LA

Do you like Skullgirls? DO YOU LIKE CUPCAKES?
Well then...

Introducing Salty Cupcakes, an event that combines Skullgirls, cupcakes, boba, and not-being-held-at-my-apartment into one big desserty night.

When: Thursdays 7pm-??, beginning next week, September 13th.
Where: Frootsii, a 24-hr casual boba/snack/dessert hangout located at 14318 Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks. There's a big comfy couch, many types of delicious drinks and food to order, and parking underground. Also tables, chairs, a floor, lights, and lots and lots of breathable air.

Stream: http://www.twitch.tv/eightysixed (when the event is going on, of course)

I will be bringing two PS3 setups (and possibly a 360), all patched. Bring sticks, and if you have a lagless monitor it would be much appreciated. If bloodlust dictates, I will run a tournament starting at 9:30 or so.

This is a weekly event, so get off your duff and show up.

    Not from me, although if anyone from around here is interested in streaming it I'd love to have them do so. There is internet...

    This is making me want to hop on a plane.

    And have disposable income to pay for said plane trip. Sadness. :(

    Most SG action I'll get is Anime Weekend Atlanta at the end of the month.
    Ms. Fortune is great. Everybody likes a little head action every now and then.

    So googlemaps is telling me this would be an hour long drive from Orange County. This is very innaccurate, isn't it? I'd be taking the 405 all the way there.

    I haven't lived in Orange County for almost 2 bloody years now, and even I know it should only take you 45 minutes in good traffic and up to 2 hours in awful traffic.

    But does that f*cking matter? GO THERE IRREGARDLESS!

    Well if no one's going to stream can someone at least film it? Or make some photos or something?
    It will be done as it was foretold for we are servants of the Skully Ones and we will consume tuna with bacon and we will party for days and nights without rest and we no need other fate despite this one! For we are what we are and we will kneel before no one >=[

    up to 2 hours in awful traffic.
    That's all I was looking for. I've only driven to LA once and that was to LAX (I hate LA : \ ). It was not a pleasant drive. Just need to know what to expect. I get home from work around 6:30, eat, and take off. Worst case scenario I get there at like 9:30! Although I don't know if I'll be able to make it to this week's anyways ><. I'm always a bit cautious driving out this far since I have take someone else's car to do it.

    The desire to eat will make you want those salty cupcakes all the more.

    Given that I'm probably going to get kicked out of my house soon, yeah... I can probably move to LA for this. I'll sit on a street corner with an arcade stick and a sign that says "Will play Skullgirls for cupcakes"
