02:49 pm - on new years parties... (or not new years parties)...

EDIT:looking to find out the best time for a party. If nothing else, make sure you read the last paragraph of this post and comment.

since I once again skipped having a Halloween Jam this year, a few people have asked me about doing a New Years party. I realize a couple other people are throwing parties too, but I'm feeling like I'm going to. Mostly because I really like throwing parties.

Anyway, as everyone knows, my parties generally have prizes. Usually costume party prizes. But for Last Minute Jam I did things differently alst year. I just gave the prizes to whoever I saw fit. I've kinda been thinking about doing something a little different this year though. I was thinking, just to make things interesting, what if there were some measure of skill to winning prizes. You know, other than the usual skill of just looking hot standing around in a costume that was more or less your underwear (not that I have a problem with that).

So I was thinking. What if I set up a New Years Monte Carlo casino in my house. There would be a prize, or a couple prizes, as there always are. Guests would receive some number of chips upon arrival, there'd maybe be some casino games set up that you could win more with. Maybe I'd even add a couple secret ways to win more. People could make side bets to earn more chips, trade them for sexual favors, hold each other up at gun point in a dark alley. Whatever. And at some key point (maybe an hour or two after midnight or whatever) there'd be exciting and valuable prizes for the chip leaders.

And just in the interest of fun, people would be encouraged to dress up all nice and monte carloish. Tuxes, sparkly evening gowns, whatever. I could maybe use a couple volunteers to be dealers and cocktail waitresses. Really, I just want to see cute girls wearing the tiny gold outfits.

Anyway, do people think that would be cool. Or would everyone just rather we have a theme of "everybody get shitfaced drunk?"

Anyway, who would be in for that idea? Anyone have any suggestions for games that should be there. Or other ways to win chips? Anyone think I should just scrap the whole idea and has a better idea for a party, or should I just junk the idea and go to someone else's party? So much to consider.

EDIT: Ok, so since other people are planning on going to other New Years parties, and since I really like the idea of Monte Carlo Jam, I could be tempted to throw it on another night (say a couple weeks before New Years (Dec 17ish) or a couple weeks after (Jan 14ish). So open ended question. When do people want me to have a party? 12/17, 12/31 or 1/14?

I'm also liking the idea of a Monte Carlo night. I vote mid-December.

would you wear a sparkly evening dress and get like a long cigarette holder and stuff? Or alternatively, I still need cocktail waitresses... in cute tiny little outfits.

12/17!

looking like a more and more popular date... do me a favor and float it with DPB and such... have people come here to vote if they would (i know they'd all be voting not 12/31, but the other two dates are doable). I'd like to have all the responses in one place.

hmmm... now I need to come up with cool prizes and stuff... and get people to volunteer to run the games.

Dude, will you have blackjack? I love blackjack!

there could be blackjack... its an idea...

so if not NYE, which of the other two dates do you vote for?

In my not all that vast experience, the male portion of the Jammy Jam competition does tend to be more about showmanship than anything else.

I think there is some pretty blatent sexism involved here (not that I am really complaining all that much).
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 26th, 2005 - 01:52 am (Link)
there is nothing wrong with good old fashioned sexism. That's how god wanted it. Its in the bible and everything.

I'm assuming you're out for all of the aforementioned dates?

I guess my vote would be for January. Be a nice post-holiday pick-me-up. There are already enough party opportunities in December.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 26th, 2005 - 02:32 am (Link)
max1975 kind of made that point. The biggest thing making me pull for December is I know I'm not busy with wrestling that weekend. But also it seems like a weekend when people will be around. I kinda want to do SOMETHING before/around the holidays. Of course there's also the murder mystery party thing that Steph wants to throw. We'd probably do that on the other weekend or something. Its up in the air. But that would be a smaller thing, by its very nature.

I'd be happy to help out as a dealer. I have a lot of experience at that type of thing.

Oh... you mean...

Forget I said anything.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 26th, 2005 - 08:18 pm (Link)
which date would be best for you though?

Either mid-December or mid-January would work for me. No real preference between the two.

Sounds pretty awesome. I rage at being out of town. See, I'd vote for 12/30, since that isn't NYE, but I would still be in town for it.

I don't throw Friday parties anymore. Too mcuh work.

I just friended you (hope you don't mind) so that I can post and say I have (by majority vote) the hottest costume ever lined up for this party. Now alls I need is a schweet fedora and I'm golden.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: December 7th, 2005 - 07:56 pm (Link)
cool... looking forward to it... though prizes aren't going to be given for costumes at this party in the traditional sense that they have been at other Maverick Jams. I've got like this whole thing planned. But do dress up, you never know what that might get you.
