    I recently found out that I may be a little late to this, how late could I theoretically show up before it's a pain in the butt for people?

    (I need to pick something fairly important up at 5 at the grand hyatt)

    It won't be a pain in the butt at any point. :) Food may be a little cold depending how late you really are, but if your name isn't crossed off on the list, you'll get your food pass. :)

    Yeah, I may not have access to my hotel room to shave and change before 4:00pm, so I anticipate not rolling in till 5:30 or later.

    I just hope they're still be some of Coldbrew's Brawndo left. It's got electrolytes.

    Considering the dinner doesn't start until 5:00pm, you should be fine. :)

    Ah, for some reason (probably the fact I just got up 15 minutes ago) I was thinking 4.

    Carry on then. :D

    I'll try and be there around 5 too, as I'm hungry too, and the jetlag doesn't help. D;

    And dammit, forgot to tell I bought on August 23rd, hours before ending. So...I'll be with my brother. Mai gode. 8D;;

    Thank you so much to the organizers of the dinner! It was great fun, with some yummy lasagna!

    Long Live the Pre-Pax Dinner!

    Indeed, my thanks to beta_angel and the other organizers, you guys did an awesome job.

    While I didn't have much time at the dinner (due to Slytherins preparing to move out), the lasagna was damn tasty, and worked as a good cushion for much alcohol on the TWDT afterwords.

    Thank you guys for making it out. I'm really glad everything seemed to go smoothly and I didn't hear any complaints (but if there are some, please PM me so I can try to fix them up for next year).

    I really appreciate each and every one of you who made it out and allowed this tradition to continue.

    I promise that next year will be even better, as I learned a TON about how to properly set this up.

    Honestly, I was totally thrilled with how everything went off, it was great to meet all of you and I hope to see you more!!


    Remember, this dinner doesn't happen with you and this community really is a one of a kind. I will do my very best to keep this tradition going for PAX Prime and I would love to help out with PAX East. For as long as this community wants this tradition, I will push to keep it going, just like the originators did with this dinner.


    Thanks again,

    Pre-PAX Dinner Crew


    P.S. ACC3SS? Those wings were great, even re-heated and yeah, they were hot but *delicious*. I zipped right through them and loved every burning second. The timbits were bitchin' too. Thanks so much.

    Not trying to be spammy, but I need to find someone that can get me the foodie buttons and also swap for the "warrior needs food badly" button. I will be dressed as a little sister in a BioShock cosplay group, please find me if you can! Anyone that wants to trade but cannot find me can PM me for my cell number

    @Ga1Friday is the twitter account I use to talk about everyday things. Sometimes work things. Lots of work things.

    Yeah, you're not kidding. That was a total fuckup on my part, and I really do apologize. It will *not* happen again.


    GalFriday - I kept my eyes out for you all day today, asked 3 different Little Sisters if they were you, but they weren't. I'll be at BYOC tomorrow around 11:00am and will gladly trade you buttons then.

    The Pre-PAX Dinner was incredible this year. Very very well run. Great food. Fun venue. Good music. It was amazing to arrive, get food immediately and have a lot of time to chillax with peeps and get some serious button trading in.

    A round of applause to all the organizers!! Huzzah!

    See you next year.

    It was a great dinner this year. I'm glad things worked out so well. I even managed to run into Red Halo on my way there. Though the large Slytherin banner didn't hurt there :)
