    It's not dirt cheap, but I don't think it's ridiculously expensive, either. That's probably not a helpful answer.

    30 tickets sold, people. 1/4 the way there in under 24 hours. Tickets are going faaaaaaaaast.

    I think it's possible for you guys to go into your orders and change your info. I'm pretty sure Hypatia did it. Hypatia, can you confirm/deny?

    Yup, you can go in and change it yourself, in your confirmation e-mail there's a "Manage" link, from there click "Manage Your Order" under the The 2nd Annual Post-PAX Party at the Taphouse! listing, it's the second button from the right.

    From there, click on "Update Attendee Information", you either have to sign up for an eventbrite account or ask them to send you a new password if you can't remember it. From there it will open the screen with all of your info and you can edit it as needed.

    Hypatia, coming through huge.

    Also, $85 for the raffle so far. Very exciting. At the current donation rate, we'll have $368 to work with for the raffle. That's some serious prizes.

    Re: alcohol expenses.

    I guess the most important question is: How much for a pitcher of beer that doesn't suck?

    From that, I'm sure we can extrapolate other costs.

    Also, it looks like a classy place. Do they have reasonable scotch? Or is it all Johnny Walker Red and such?

    Just called them.

    No pitchers of beer, and when I asked them for a few examples of good scotch that they have Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, and other good stuff. I don't know anything about scotch, so I don't know if that's good or not.

    They're good. They're "garden-variety" good, but they're good.

    Common, but excellent, I guess. I'm just spoiled by The Highlander here in Ottawa, which has like 150 different varieties and tasting classes and all kinds of good shit.

    Not that you'd want to host a party like this there. It's strictly a pub/restaurant.

    Goddamn I am so hyped for this, Arco, seriously, thank-you.

    EDIT: Also, Arco? If you pay for so much as one drink at this thing, we're doing it wrong. Come see me for minimum one free beer.

    What he said. You need to remind me to remind you, which will fail a redundancy check. I was truly just curious. I greatly appreciate the gesture though.

    It's not actually your job title. It's your handle. EventBrite won't let me add custom fields, but I don't want to publicize people's real names. So I had to pick a field for populating the attendees list at the bottom of the page, and that one was the least inappropriate.

    Not a perfect solution, I know.

    So, umm... I would be Unemployed then.

    People screwed this up last year, too. It's not intuitive in the slightest, so I don't blame anyone. EventBrite really should let you add your own fields. They let you add your own questions, they just haven't carried that over to fields that you can choose from to populate the attendees list, and that's awful. Not everyone wants their real name publicized, and there's no fields like "Nickname," or "Surname," or anything else that's more appropriate.

    So, yeah. Blame EventBrite.

    For sure. I believe there was a link in the confirmation e-mail you received that will allow you to manage your info with EventBrite. It requires registering with them.

    That is like saying a restaurant that serves Pepsi products has Mountain Dew.

    Maybe you should highlight the fact that the whole occupation area is actually your forum name. Some where in the OP. Not in the FAQ area, because I don't think anyone reads the damn FAQ.

    Eh, helpful enough, I live in a place where most things are on the expensive end of the spectrum. So long as the various ciders don't run more than $6 a pint I think I'm alright. That said, registered!

    I'm going to spend so much at PAX just on alcohol, I think. Pre-PAX dinner, Triwizard Drinking Tournament (if the houses ever open up again), Post-PAX dinner - just these alone!

    I'm not even a heavy drinker, but I'm seeing bar bills in front of my eyes...

    Man, girlie drinks are awesome, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    Yeah, I talk big about Scotch up in here, but I'm also just as likely to be swigging a delicious Daiquiri or a Grasshopper (oh god grasshopper I should go make one now).

    "Girlie drink" is just code for "OH GOD DELICIOUS."
