Pre-Wizarding Fried Food Extravaganza! (#PWFFE)

edited September 2010 in PAX Archive
We're currently at the upper end of the reasonable size for attendees, and cannot take extras. Please do not just show up, as it will really destroy the capacity of the places we'll be at!


For those of us who are going on the Tri-Wizarding Bar Crawl, but aren't going to the Pre-PAX dinner, we're going to meet up for some delicious fried food at the Pike Street Fish Fry. We'll meet there at 6:30 PM, and aim to be done by 7:30, so that we have some buffer time, and can make it to the bar crawl on time.

We will pick up our food at the Pike Street Fish Fry, and then wander the streets bringing mayhem and chaos to all who cross our paths :)

Pike's Street Fish Fry
925 East Pike Street
Seattle, WA

Costumes are welcome! But please, don't expecto your patronus in front of minors.
For those of us not going to the Pre-PAX dinner (due to a combination of restraining orders, an inability to behave in polite company, and late flights), we're going to meet up for fried goodness, sammiches and such at Pike's Street Fish Fry.

All are invited, though obviously Hufflepuffians are the coolest :)

They have lots of choice of fish, meat and veggie, food is $5-10. Non-carbon-based life forms are not served at this establishment.

Menu here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_g_2heoQoMxw/SswJg4LEaaI/AAAAAAAAAF8/LgG3aKJ_CkM/s1600-h/FIsh+Fry+TOGO+Menu.jpg

If you can join the Facebook group that would be great. Either let me know there or here how many of you are planning to come, and if you sign up on the Facebook page, what your forum name is.

WE WILL BE AT MOE BAR


We have booths reserved at Moe bar nextdoor. They will be handling all the food orders and pass them through to the Fish Fry. They are a chilled place, and sound perfect for what we want. Please go to Moe bar, and place your orders there. DO NOT ORDER AT THE FISH FRY, as that will mess up the system and upset all the great people who are helping make this happen.

    I will be attending this +1. I'm sure my bro won't mind. I was just planning on grabbing random bits of food before hand, but this sounds like a better idea. We are showing up in full wizard gear, right? Ought to confuse the heck out of people.

    Definitely :) Will be brilliant! How often do you see wizards eating steak and fried oyster sandwiches? (that's what I'll be having, btw)

    I just want to take a moment to reflect on how amazing PAX is. This is going to be my first year, I'm a true PAX Virgin (and I have a t-shirt to prove it). I'd never been on these boards before May. And yet, somehow, I'm already organising a PAX spin-off event (the London PAX pre-party) and a PAX spin-off spin-off event (the pre-wizarding food here). And people are signing up!

    Truly, 70,000 friends I never knew I had. Can I live in the world of PAX year-round?

    There is a reason for the post-PAX blues, to be sure. I nearly cried after '07 when I came home, opened pictochat, and no one joined :(

    For content: me+1 are maybes, and how can a "field roast sausage sandwich" be vegan? How can you un-meat a sausage?

    Awesome, list updated :)

    I'm talking to the folks over at the Fish Fry to coordinate with them for maximum awesomeness. Given that numbers are continuing to increase, I wanted to give them a little bit of warning that more than two dozen witches and wizards would be storming their establishment!

    You're still more than welcome to come to the food :) You are encouraged to wear silly clothes! And perhaps we can convince you to join us for one or two rounds of spellcasting?

    Well, it looks like pretty much everybody who's attending has reserved some coins. That's good, so I can go ahead and knock most of them out before I get too drunk. :)

    I am tentatively in barring Enforcer shenaniganz (read: shifts)! I've yet to visit this place as I'm not huge into fried food, but reading the menu definitely piqued interest. And I'm a worldly foodie, so I can't say no!

    Also YES. My fellow Seattleites and I are definitely in PAX spirits full-time. We've at times compared social gatherings to "mini-PAXes", hehe. It makes me happy to know other PAXer communities are sprouting up across the pond, and I'm sure beyond. :)

    I lived in Everett for four years and I barely ever went venturing much into Seattle. And when I went to my last PAX in '06, I didn't really immerse myself in the community. Now, I figure I'd knock them both out and once and just throw myself out there. This, the crawl, post-PAX dinners, buttons, challenge coins. Should all be lots of fun that I can wait. Two weeks before I can start my vacation and it can't come fast enough.
