FINAL UPDATE 4/5/2012: NOMS HAVE BEEN HAD AND THE DINNER WAS A SUCCESS! I want to thank all that attended the dinner and the staff there were very pleased with how everything went as well. All that I ask is that you rate them on Yelp with the following link. Again, thank you for all showing up and for those reading this during the weekend, ENJOY PAX!!!
UPDATE 3/20/2012: ALL ORDERS ARE IN!!! All I ask is that all freestyle order attendees should bring cash so that the restaurant doesn't have to deal with a bunch of different credit cards. Here is a map of the ATMs in the area of Faneuil Hall, so you can grab cash on the way there.
PLEASE bring your ticket to the dinner for admittance. You can either download the Eventbrite app for the iPhone or Droid or print the ticket out. If you don't have a smart phone and didn't print the ticket out before getting to Boston, go to your hotel's business center and print it out there.
UPDATE 3/16/2012: ALL BUT 13 ORDERS IN. I got an extension to get the orders in by Monday, the 19th, Do if you're one of the 13, GET YOUR ORDER IN NOW!
I called my contact at the restaurant to make sure things are still good for the dinner and the way they want to handle the ordering for people who have pre-paid meals (non-free style tickets) and those ordering off the full menu (free style tickets) is to have the pre-paid people seated on one side and the free style ticket holders seated on the other side. If you want to change your ticket to accommodate your group, NOW is the time!
ATTENTION FREE STYLE TICKET HOLDERS: If you haven’t already, you NEED to message me THROUGH THE FORUMS with what you intend to order from their full menu. The Restaurant requires ALL food orders be turned in by Friday, so I need them for THURSDAY (3/15/2012). This is YOUR FINAL NOTICE…If you want food, tell me NOW.
Please finalize your plans for the dinner (make sure you're coming and don't have to cancel your ticket). The Restaurant REQUIRES the final food order by this coming Friday (3/16/2012). If it’s not in, you’re not eating.
PAX is coming. With it's impending arrival, everyone plans more for the event to come. For the past two years, we have had a Pre PAX dinner in downtown Boston, which was arranged by VisionOfClarity. This year, I am organizing it and I have booked at Durgin-Park for April 5th for 5pm to 7pm and have set a FINAL CAPACITY of 100. To compensate for the Magical Mystery Tour, I am going to let the 5pm start time be a rolling start; if you can get here at 5pm, good, but that doesn't mean I'm expecting everyone at 5pm. I will, however, stop checking tickets at 6pm, so please be at the restaurant by then.Durgin Park

ALL TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT!!! As for those who want to be put on a waiting list, send me a private message and I will go by first come, first serve.
IMPORTANT: The room I got us is on the second floor of the building and there is no elevator access to it. Unfortunately, I did not think of this until earlier today AFTER I booked it the day before. In short, I cannot accommodate the handicapped and I apologize for the lack of foresight in that.
Ticket sales have closed, so please pay attention to the following:
For those who got a free ticket, please send me a private message as to what you will be getting as I will be calling the restaurant 2 weeks before the event so I can give them a more prepared count of who will be buying what. And again, if you got a free ticket, anything you get, you will pay on your own and I assume no cost incurred by you.
For a preview of the room I got us, to to their web site and click on the top picture of the column on the right.
I have received a copy of a group menu that best suits the price of $25.20 per person (tax & gratuity included) and here it is:
All dinners are started with a House Salad
Choices of the following:
Grilled Chicken Breast
Fish & Chips
Vegetarian: Pasta Primavera
Gluten-free: Any meat option without any bread
All entrees are served with Corn Bread & French Fries
Includes Soft Drink (Soda/Coffee/Tea) & Ice Cream
Cash bar available
Per request, I created a ticket that acts as solely an invite and costs nothing. This ticket only confirms you have signed up for the dinner and you will order off the restaurant's full menu
ALL TICKETS will be checked before being seated.
Also, any other questions, please feel free to post.
