    In 5 years I never had a bad experience at Dick's. But thanks for shitting on our parade.

    I mentioned the place to my wife when I was buying my ticket and she said a friend of hers who lives in Boston loves the place. I know the atmosphere might bother some - but I'm sure they tone it down if they have someone that isn't comfortable with it - they are a business afterall...

    I went last year after PAX was over (sadface haha), and it's really not that bad. I was actually telling the waiter that we had that he wasn't being enough of an asshole. I dunno, I find their antics pretty funny. Just be light-hearted, know that they are gonna heckle you somewhat, and just joke back with them and you'll have a good time :)

    I disagree with the assessment that Dick's food is horrible.

    It's not.

    The servers being assholes is also not that big of a deal. 3/4 of the time, they put forth enough effort to make a stupid joke and ask questions like "You done with that yet? No? Can you move your ass, I'd like to bring something else to the table if that's ok with you?" rather than being complete and total 'assholes'.

    However, as Kirking Around mentioned, they're *much* more fun wen you give them shit back.


    I think VisionsOfClarity made a good choice in venue and were it possible, I'd be in attendance.

    To anyone who is sad about not going to Bell in Hand - don't be, the food isn't good :)

    Dick's isn't amazing or anything, but it's decent. I'd much rather eat there than Bell.

    Would it be possible to order a separate meal? I have dietary restrictions and anything fried or with milk in it is bad for me. I haven't called and asked about the meat options (ribs and chicken might be cooked with butter), yet, but am planning to.

    If this is possible, great! If not, then I might come and not eat. What do you think?

    I called the restaurant. I found out I could eat the bbq ribs with a salad or veggies (specify with no butter) instead of fries or cole slaw. Would that be okay?

    Hey Vision, this is Ophelya's husband. I was just wondering how we ordered our tickets, since you mentioned making her a special one... I can go ahead and order mine, but I wanted to make sure we got her's too. Just let me know what I need to do :-)

    Please excuse me if this has already been covered because I haven't read the whole thread. How do we go about ordering tickets? I really am looking forward to attending since I wasn't able to attend last year. Plus, Dicks Last Reseort is awesome. You have to love a place that lets you treat them like crap, even though it's all in good fun. If you could email me at [email protected], I would appreciate it.

    At which point I'd stand up, shake my ass, sit down, and finish eating.

    I think I'll do fine.

    Yeah, the menu at Dick's doesn't really appeal to me and the atmosphere sounds like it just wouldn't be my bag. Hope to meet some of you at the con, but I think I'll be giving this event a miss. Sorry to hear Bell in Hand wouldn't accommodate the under-21 crowd.

    I agree with Themiscyra about how I feel about the atmosphere, but I'm not going to let that hold me back from meeting as many people as I can. This is our convention and a chance to meet more people like us.

    Nope. In fact they're in perfect harmony.

    Dinner ends at 730 and crawl starts at 730. Both places are in the faneuil hall. Probably want to leave the dinner around 7 or 715 though. But since the dinner starts at 530 we'll have plenty of time at the dinner.

    Yea, starting bars are at most a 2-3 minute walk from Dick's.

    Last year they overlapped by about 30 minutes and people still made it to their bars alright. You could see the colour lines pretty clearly at dinner.

    Though Lewie P's Mum took the cake.

    One of the only accents I've ever had trouble with was a heavy Scottish one. I thought my friends name was Russ for about 3 weeks until I saw him with a name tag and realized it was Ross.

    It seems like I might have to skip the dinner this year. My schedule has suddenly taken a turn for the downright bizarre: will be in Austin for work, and my flight will be returning to Boston at 4pm on Thursday. I'll have to check into the hotel, coordinate with roommates, and all that. Doesn't look like I'll make it.

    Will buy ticket it plans change, though!
