Spring Nights at Sam’s 2 Brings Great Surprises!

IMG_0692On April 27th, we spent a fantastic Southern California evening under the tiki torches of Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel, and it was a blast! More than 75 TPAers from far and near converged on Anaheim for several hours of networking fun and delicious Polynesian cocktails; it truly was a wonderful time spent with some of the greatest folks anywhere.

The Spring Nights 2 crowd was an awesome mix of old and new friends coming from all over California – from San Diego, to San Francisco; it’s always mind-blowing to see how far TPAers will come each month to mingle! There were also some new faces, which we get really excited about – we love seeing the Theme Park Adventure community grow. Extra props to fans that come by themselves; that’s never an easy first step to take in any social situation.

Winter Nights at Sam’s 3 Brings Another Season of TPA Gatherings to an End

Winter_Nights_3_2014 256On Sunday, March 16th, Theme Park Adventure held its final Winter Nights gathering at Trader Sam’s in Anaheim. Approximately 80 TPAers showed up for the final mixer of the season – a respectable-sized crowd that mingled under the tiki torches for several hours at the popular Disneyland Resort bar/restaurant!

In attendance were theme park fans, themed entertainment industry professionals, and of course – oodles of haunters and haunt fans representing some of the best haunted attractions in the world! It was also fantastic to see many new faces – first-timers that came alone or with friends to join the TPA family; we love that, and always encourage it – it’s naturally a bit awkward at first to jump into a large group that seems to know each other well. However, as we say time and again, newcomers instantly are made to feel welcome, and find themselves conversing with like-minded individuals over delicious tiki drinks until late in the evening!
