PAX East IRC Meetup 2011

So the its official. I was delegated and have setup the meet up for East for those IRC folks that wish to meet up and get some food stuff. Below you can find the all the information you will need to get yourself there and what will be awaiting you to consume to help with the inevitable hangover from last nights drinking and or what not.


IRC Meet up -

Where -
Lucky's Lounge
355 Congress Street, Boston, MA
Google Map

It looks to be about a 10 to 15min walk from the convention center.


When -
Saturday the 12th at 10am


What -
A meet and greet of the IRC people that wish to partake in some food after a long night of possible heavy drinking and or other such fun. Or just to meet up with some of those people you have been talking with on IRC to see who's who.


Food -
Right now with the confirmed number under 20 the menu for the group will just be Lucky's normal Brunch. Check out the PDF below for a full listing of food and beverages that will be offered.

http://www.luckyslounge.com/BRUNCHFINAL2009.pdf

Cost -
As it is a normal brunch menu it will come down to each person. I have set it up so everyone will be on there own tab. If you wish to group up with a friend and combine bills go for it!



Any questions please feel free to contact me!
Keeping this here just in case there's more people who want to join in.

The manager is working with me to set it up and I need an apx. number of people who will be attending. As for food right now there are two ways it can go depending on people attending and price range. One is a Brunch Buffet (list below) for 18$ and the other would be a menu with an acceptable price range for those attending.


Brunch Buffet
  • Buffet-style breakfast
  • Egg station (cooked to order)
  • Toast (Wheat, Sourdough, Marble Rye)
  • Home fries
  • Bacon and Sausage
  • Fruit, yogurt, granola
  • Coffee, juice, soda included
The room also has a bar for those morning hangover cure drinks some might need.


For an idea what the other food option might include check out Lucky's normal menu of items.

    Same here, I mostly turn it on and lurk, or get busy doing something else. But it would be cool to meet everyone in person.

    may I suggest brunch at Lucky's, 10am on Saturday. It's close to BCEC, we can get food, we can get breakfast drinks.

    Yeah I'm going with my buddy who doesn't idle, as well as arriving the morning of the event. If there were to be a meetup I recommend it being at the convention itsself.

    Opening morning I want to be in line, not at an external venue.

    No offense, but I'm not sure a non-regular IRCer really gets to have much say in where and when the meetup will be. :P

    I'm down for 10am on either Fri or Sat as long as the place has coffee so I can nurse my probable hangover. Lucky's might be very good and I recommend contacting them asap, I'm working with their event planner for the girls meetup and they are being AMAZING.

    You don't want to cater your plans to someone that most of the attendees wouldn't know? Why not? :p

    I didn't realize you had chosen Lucky's until Worm or someone brought it up in chat. Glad to know that they are It seems like the only decent venue that's open at 10. I would have otherwise said Whiskey Priest, but they don't open until 11:30 :|

    I would likely be interested if this were on Saturday. Would be nice to put some faces to names since I'm fairly new to IRC but like to think I'm a small part of the crowd.

    If its on Saturday I might actually be able to show up for a little bit.

    If its on opening day then I'm out (and likely others since they want keynote and such)

    Just putting in my 2 cents, people can either use it or not.Not sure why that comment is neccesary, but then again...

    It probably looks like I won't be attending either way, so I hope whoever does show up has a good time.

    Looking at that menu, it might be better Friday morn since that is some good hangover food. Though that implies there won't be epic parties Friday night, which I don't think is the case.

    Which ever way you slice it, I'm in.

    FWIW, the menu price range is pretty darn acceptable, if that's the way it ends up going.

    Also, if we do the buffet option, can you sweet-talk them into hooking us up with some hollandaise sauce? :D

    Just so you know, if the group is large enough it wouldn't be the full menu, just a limited one that Snipe would have to negotiate ahead of time.

    I have updated the original post with the details of the meet up. Right now the number of people coming might change the menu. I am going to contact Lucky's to see what the other food options will be if the numbers doesn't hit where I had guessed it might hit.

    I have updated the info for the meet up as well as linked the menu.

    I don't think Lucky's will kick you out because you changed nicknames but you never know.



    I was wanting some input from those who are going to be showing up. I was thinking about making a quick cardboard/bum like sign to put on the table for the meet up, so everyone knows what table/area to wander too. Do it? better ideas on signs/fun quirky things to do to signify the group?
