T-Shirt Party In Vegas November 3rd – RSVP In Comments

UPDATE: Hey everyone, i’ve had a lot of interest and a lot of comments from folks about the Vegas party, and even some offers of sponsorship from a few companies including Seibei, Design By Humans, 2Smart Monkeys, t-shirt forums, and Gunslinger design plus a couple of others via email. Well I think i’ve got to scale back my ambitions a little bit as work is totally overwhelming me right now (yes I have a full time job), and i think a month was too short a time to try and organize this in a remote city. That being said i am planning on being in Vegas on November 3rd, and plan on being at the Mix Lounge in the Mandalay Bay between 8 and 10 on saturday night so if you swing by and introduce your self I will certainly buy you a couple of drinks, hows that sound :-) Lets call it a t-shirt happy hour (although Mix says no “sleeveless shirts” so no wife beaters).

NOTE: to RSVP leave a comment and include your real name if you want the threadless certificate, they will be handed out at the door, and if you’re really into it Digg the story.
UPDATE: Moved the date to November 3rd due to Halloween conflicts

Offers of sponsorship so far: Seibei, Design By Humans, 2Smart Monkeys

So here’s the idea guys, i’m planning a trip to vegas to celebrate my birthday on Saturday November 3rd October 27th and it struck me that I might be able to organize a bigger party in Vegas related to T-shirts.

Here’s what I will throw into the pot i’ll put $1200 from tcritics ad revenue that I will contribute to the bar of where ever we end up going. I will also give a threadless gift certificate to at least the first 40 RSVP’s buy the first 100 people to RSVP their choice of threadless t-shirt with my streetteam points (gift cert will be between $25 and $50). What i’m looking for is a few companies to sponsor the party and help me organize it in return they will get some exclusive advertising on my site, and will of course be heavily featured in the various blogging about how this event develops. I’m thinking the party could include a t-shirt fashion show, some give aways, some competitions etc.

Here’s my target market for this party:

I was thinking about staying in the Luxor as it seems to have some great rates that weekend, and it’s a pretty cool place. As for where the party should actually be, open to suggestions.

So what can you do? If you’re free that weekend and you want to hobnob in Vegas with people obsessed with t-shirts just RSVP by leaving a comment (make sure you fill in the email address field with a real email so I can keep you updated and add you to the evite and you’re real name which willl be on the list), and let me know what threadless shirt you would like and what size (i’ve got to buy them all in one go so pick one that will be in stock, otherwise i’ll get the size in another shirt). I plan to hand them out at the party.

What do you guys think, leave a comment if you think this is too crazy to work, or just crazy enough it might work. Obviously leave a comment if you want to talk about sponsorship as well, cheers.

Vegas baby :-)

  9. karl says:

    Awesome, i’ll keep everyone updated as plans evolve, i’m waiting for a few more comments here an then i’m going to email a bunch of t-shirt companies and see if they want to help out. I think a t-shirt fashion show would be cool, maybe some areas where some companies can sell shirts as well.

    There will be lots of photos and news about this, I promise that :-)

  13. Sav says:

    umm.. Karl. is this going to be “THE” party we have been thinking about? Are we going to go crazy all the way in Vegas?

  14. David says:

    I don’t know if I could make it (based on the last time I went, I might have a terrible gambling addiction), but I’d be interested in sponsoring, if you’ll have me.

  15. karl says:

    Woohoo, I lurve Seibei, i’ll email you David and we’ll talk about potential arrangements.

  16. Josh says:

    I may actually be in Vegas that weekend. I’ll keep you posted.

  17. Joe says:

    Damn… I would be there with t-shirts if it were a single week earlier (and I would have turned 21 two days ago), because it would have been the last weekend of my fall break. I think this sounds like a great idea, though! And a lot of fun.

  18. russell says:

    let’s make it rain. i think i might be there for daft punk regardless.

  19. Steve says:

    Karl, 2smartmonkeys would love to be involved, even if it’s just giving some tees and enjoying the massive tee party itself. We’ll definitely be there.

  20. Jamey says:

    DBH could help! We would love to get involved with the fashion show!

  21. ollirudi says:

    just remember to use up all your threadless street team points at once, or you’ll lose what you don’t spend. i recommend buying a megashitload of gift certificates

  22. Machaqueo says:

    November 3rd Sounds better. I’ve just started printing my own shirts, and my enthusiasm is snowballing!

    My Threadless pick is: Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

  23. Matthew says:

    That sounds like a great event. Please let me know when you want to do this in Detroit. I know some people. :)

  24. Edgar B says:

    Oh snap! That sounds like white chunk awesome in light oil. I would love to make a t-shirt related pilgrimage.

    1) Anyone interested in carpooling from MS or en route from MS?

    2) Cost?

  25. [...] Party Update: I’ve realized I can convert my threadless points to gift certificates, i’m thinking a $50 gift certificate for the first 40 RSVPs, still looking for bars/venues that can host 50+ people for a little open bar action in Vegas, [...]

  26. Amanda says:

    Wow, I would LOVE to go to this party! I’m not sure if I’d be able to get away from work in NYC to go, but if there’s any way that REVERIE could be involved, please let me know!

    Hey,

    I own 2 party companies called CrawlSF (www.crawlsf.com) and Redline (www.redlinesf.com) and I may be interested in being involved. CrawlSF is on the beer-drinking/bars/pub crawls side of things and Redline does club promotions.

  29. Rodney says:

    Hey Karl,

    Sounds like a cool idea. I think T-ShirtForums may be up for a sponsorship. Send me some details.

    I haven’t been to Vegas in awhile…if the stars align, I think I’d like to attend as well.

  30. Gunslinger says:

    Same here, Karl …

    Drop me an e-mail with any sponsorship details. I rarely get out of my self-imposed cage, but my wife “might” want to attend. I’ll ask her …

  31. Liondel says:

    it’s a good idea!
    Did you try to print a tee shirt on http://www.wordans.com. I think it’s quite new. few weeks or less.
    I visit the site and it’s quite good, and the flash app is very cool.
    Try it and who knows you will print some tshirt
