We'll be getting together at Bahooka on Sat. Dec. 4th to celebrate the holiday season. We will also be heading to Cal Poly Pomona for a Polynesian style performance of "The Nut Cracker" performed by the "Polynesian Paradise Dancers"

We will be meeting at Bahooka @ 5:30 for dinner then heading over for the show at 7:30. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15 adult and $12 child. The 20 min. drive looks like a straight shot on the 10 frwy.

I've never seen this show but am very excited about it.

Since it looks like a very small group. I haven't made reservations as of today. We could fit into a big booth right now, but if I get a few last minute joiners. I'm sure Bahooka can accomodate us.

If you need to map out anything;
Bahooka
4501 Rosemead Blvd. Rosemead, CA
Cal Poly Pomona
3801 W. Temple Ave.
She said the theatre is near Kellog/S. University Dr. and to Park in lot D
here's the # for info on the show (562)945-2599
I'm still bringin my gift even if it is just Trader Pup and me swaping.

There will also be a prize for best decorated gift.

I'd like EVERYONE who is comming to participate in the gift swap. Hopefully this will become a fun yearly tradition!
I'm setting the limit at $15-$20 value. With tiki or Hawaiian themed gifts preferred. I'm also a sucker for funny white elephants, (maybe that's just me) so if you find a good one wrap it up! I'd love to see home made gifts too! If you are really stumped for a gift, e-mail me. I have a few ideas.

again, here's the rules for the gift swap

Everyone brings a wrapped gift of a set value.
Everyone in the gift exchange draws a number.
Number 1 chooses a gift, opens it and shows it to everyone.
Number 2 can either steal the opened gift from #1, or choose a wrapped gift and open it.
If #2 steals, #1 chooses another package and opens it.
Number 3 can steal any opened gift, or open a package.

Basic rules:
Once a gift has been stolen 3 times, it's dead and can't be stolen again.
You can't take something right back from the person who stole it from you

I can't wait to see everyone at Bahooka! Any questions, please e-mail me. Thanks, Laney

well, I just found out they scheduled my Mom's surgery for Dec. 3rd. I was expecting they'd wait until after the holidays. They are expecting a 3+ day stay in the hospital. I'm ususally the one who stays at the hospital during surgery and talks to the doctor after. I also help care for my Dad while my Mom is unable to. So if all goes well I'll be super ready to take a break from the hospital and get to Bahooka for dinner. I hate to plan for the worst but if something goes wrong, I may not make it.

But....since I'm the ONLY one who said I'd be there...bah humbug. seriously please respond ASAP.

I am still working on my gift for the swap and some decorations/prizes you won't find anywhere else!

Damn! - I know I'm late in RSVP-ing, but I was finally able to get out of my staff X-Mas party (kinda tough when you are the one putting it on, lemme tell ya...) and was all excited about going to Bahooka & doing the gift exchange. But now I see the change of plans and the new early dinner time, and unfortunately, there's no way DolphinTiki & I will be able to make it. (She works Saturdays until 5:30) "The Nutcracker" sounds great, but an evening at Bahooka was what I was lookin' forward to. <sigh> Ah, well, maybe next year...

Would you believe I already had my ticket for "The Aumakua" and the times just weren't working out. Now that you have combined both events I will be able to make it to both. Its great that both events are near eachother, now let's see about the gift. Its hard enough to buy an elephant, let alone a white one!

"The Coconutcracker"? I have been unable to find a website that gives a peek into what they have planned. Sounds like a cool way to freshen up that old story.

Count me in! I do have a question though -- when are we going to do the gift exchange? Dinner at 5:30 and then off to a show at 7:30 doesn't sound like there will be lots of time to do the exchange at Bahooka.

Also, regarding travel time, I think 20 minutes to get from Bahooka to Cal Poly Pomona is bit optimistic. There's usually a little congestion around the 10/605 no matter what day/time it is so I'd suggest alotting at least 30 mins + time for parking, etc...

Sounds like a fun time -- see you all on Saturday!
