CANCELED UPDATE- *Event canceled as the minimum 50 attendees was not reached. I'm sorry for those who purchased tickets already or if your are now trying to buy a ticket. If you have purchased tickets they should be refunded and should at least see an email about the refund soon. Sorry that this event couldn't work but lets try to make the East Post-PAX Party a success next year!

I will most likely still show up at Jillian's on Sunday anyways. I will let Jillian's know that a group of PAX-ers may show up. ~LULK *



old update-
Spoiler:

(sorry about the last post folks, had to use my old forum name)
(Planning this party is late, like really late. BUT WHY NOT?! )

Welcome to the East Post-PAX Party! I don't know if this is a 1st annual EAST party, but the event is in line with the Prime Post-PAX party hosted by ARCO (who has done great work for PPP).

"The Post-PAX Party is a last-ditch, hail-mary, all-for-one effort to have the most fun possible after the doors close on PAX EAST. We're going to hook up consoles to TVs, play pool, foosball, bowl, and ping pong, eat, drink, and party our asses off all night long before we all go back to our regular lives. It's an afterparty, a farewell, and a celebration, all rolled into one. If you don't have anywhere to be Sunday night, you should join us. Ask around: it's really fun."

I'm pleased to announce, we're rolling out to Jillian's Boston!

http://jilliansboston.com/

Sunday, April 8th
8:00pm - 11:00pm+
18+ Event

BUY TICKETS HERE

Highlights of the evening include:

-Polo and VIP Rooms all for ourselves (may have to leave room after 11pm)
-Appetizer Buffet fully stocked for 2 hours which includes: Mac and Cheese Bites, Coconut Shrimp, Chips & Salsa, Veggie Egg Rolls, Buffalo Chicken Bites
-Private Cash bar for our group
-4 private lanes of bowling (shoes included!) (max 10 per lane so there will be a signup sheet to ensure everyone gets a chance to bowl who wants too)
-1 wii station with monitor, 1 xbox station with monitor that could be connected with other gaming systems (there are other TVs in the room and I need to ask if we can use them)
-11 pool tables
-1 ping pong table
-coin operated foosball table
-tables for tabletop gaming


We're also doing a raffle, just like Prime PPP. There will be a separate ticket that is by donation. All donations will do directly to purchasing raffle items. One raffle ticket is included in the price of admission.

Tickets are $40 and they will be on sale HERE. We're renting out most of the 3rd floor- LARGE Polo and VIP rooms of this place, so max number of ticket sales is 200 people! NEED to have 50 people to book by Thursday April 4th otherwise will have to cancel event. I'm counting on you guys to spread the word and sell at least 50 tickets (perfer to sell this thing out), because as always, no one fronts the bill for this thing. Everyone pays an equal share and we have to sell all the tickets to pay for the event. QUICKLY!

What's that? You still aren't convinced and you want pictures? Okay!

Not good enough? Still have questions? Perhaps I can assist you in the form of a spoilerized F.A.Q.
Spoiler:


Actions-
-Need to get video games to play! Anyone willing to bring rockband / projectors / systems to play?
-Confirm how many screens that can be used for video games.


So subscribe to the thread for updates, tell your friends, buy your tickets, donate to the raffle, and I'll see you all at the Post-PAX Party!

    Awesome! The PPP last Prime at Jillians in Seattle was an incredible end to the weekend. Now all you need to do is call The Protomen! xD

    I'll mention this to my team and see if they'd be interested in going, because I certainly am. Especially for the bowling!

    This looks like fun, but I am not able to get tickets at the moment. Is there any chance of a walkin?

    Well the topic and OP say need to get your ticket by 4/5, so I'm going to guess no.

    By the way, might want to make the ticket link a little more prominent (like the jlilian's link). It's kinda buried in there at the moment.

    I've got my ticket. Is the place so large it can accommodate up to 200 persons easily? (Having never been to this venue before I feel I must poke and prod until answers appear ^_^)

    ·
  • XRXR [E] LULK WARegistered User regular
    I've been told that the venue max is 200, although it would be busy. The way its looking right now I don't think we will get 50. I only have I think 8 paid.

    Valiant effort to get something going this late in the game, but I think the reality is that it just lost its steam since there was no action for so long. Next year! ;)

    According to Eventbrite, there are 12 paid tickets. If there are not 50 paid tickets by Thursday, the event will be canceled. I think this is a valiant effort by @XR, but was a tad too late since the original plan sort of fizzled out. If @XR is willing, he can likely have a rockin event planned for PAX East 2013 early enough so that cancellation won't be an issue.

  • Captain Spaulding IICaptain Spaulding II [E] Marlborough, MARegistered User regular
    Well, in the event that this does get officially cancelled, we could always just all 12 of us show up and grab a table at Jillians sans the buffet.

    Next year, I'll start clambering for this sooner and hopefully we can get more people to factor it into their travel plans and such. I never know what to do with myself after closing ceremonies on Sunday, it'd be nice to have an venue to decompress with fellow attendees.

    I think it was less not starting early enough and more that nobody stepped up with an actual planned event until pretty late. There was a lot of /interest/ without a lot of /action/. It happens when trying to get an event off the ground like this.

  • XRXR [E] LULK WARegistered User regular
    Yep, I was gonna leave the tickets open till Wednesday. If I don't get 50 by then, then I'll call Jillians and tell them that we couldn't get 50 but to expect a large group to arrive.

  • septagonseptagon Registered User regular
    You could try adding this to the list on the PAX Parties thread for increased visibility.

  • XRXR [E] LULK WARegistered User regular
    I've been told that I have to let Jillian's know by Wednesday morning, so please get your tickets by then.

    Bought a ticket. Arco's Post-PAX parties in Seattle were always tons of fun. Last year's was completely epic. Here's to continuing the tradition on the east coast!

    There are men who shoot, and then there is Shoot-Man!

    Truly a valiant attempt, XR.
    It woulda been awesome, and thanks again for picking up the ball!!

    So far the only Sunday event I'm aware of is the Barcraft where a bunch will be watching the IPL4 Starcraft 2 tournament being held in Vegas.

    Details can be found in the PAX Parties thread's OP.

    Not really a post-PAX party, per say, but there it is.
    Maybe it can be turned into one. ^_^'
