    I'm glad that everyone likes the buttons and scorecards but you should be thanking @gal_friday. Not only does she handle the button and scorecard designs but on top of that she has to put up with me on a daily basis.
    Also, I'd like to point out that I'll be at the Sheraton Pre-PAX Board game meetup well before the Pre-PAX Dinner and TWDT start, if anyone wants to pick up their beer steins beforehand. You know.. so you can have them filled up on the way...

    Only question I have is if bars will fill your own glasses. Will it be a waste to take these on the crawl?

    I don't know how many bars would actually let you use your own glass but it could be useful for the Harry Potter and Three Wizards, One Goblet challenge.

    Being House Elf is the BEST! You get to hang with the awesome peeps and remember all the drunken shenanigans! My favorite from last year is hanging outside Linda's with Juju, looking like a bumble bee, climb up on the smoker's tree bench and give a 5 minute exultation on why Hufflepuff is the best. I might be the only one who remembers that, cause it was at the second to last bar.
    Plus, toward the end of the night, people are begging to buy you a drink, so you can always have 1 or 2 at the Final House Celebration.

    Over the last four years we at the Clever Dunnes Irish House (http://goo.gl/maps/E3F3U) have had the pleasure of hosting many of the wizarding persuasion. (Your own event included) Of course, for most of the year our clientele tends to be... how shall we say... slightly more muggle based. And while we've already begun preparing for your arrival, we would enjoy if you'd be so kind as to get in contact with us with the plan.

    We want to make sure you all have the best time we can provide. We are, of course, planning drink specials for the night, and there's some discussion on a special menu all weekend, food and drink, for Wizards and Muggles attending PAX.

    Thank you! And hopefully we'll be seeing all four houses this year!
    ( We don't appear on Google maps at the moment for some odd reason... perhaps a Fidelius charm? I can assure you with all certainty that we remain open for business!)

    My House Elf, Gambit, was awesome last year. He had 2 or 3 beers over the course of the night and did a FINE job. It's all about knowing your limits. :P

    I remember this just barely! Only because there was a lot of things going on. Was this before or after I stopped to get cheesypoofs? :P

    Looking at last year's challenges I am wondering, does "one beer" mean one beer or can it mean ales, ciders and whatnot (I.e. no hard liquor)?

    I only say this because I don't like the taste of beer... *awaits the argument that will ensue*

    Lindeman's Framboise lambic is technically "beer" even though it tastes like raspberry soda, looks like pink champagne, and smells like heaven.

    http://www.lindemans.be/start/framboise/en/

    Lindeman's Framboise Lambic tastes godly mixed with Young's Double Chocolate Stout... and a shot of Cake Vodka.

    Anyone at my birthday party this year (Atlus included) would've seen me downing those puppies like no tomorrow :D

    Oh. My. God.

    I think I'm in love.

    Juju IS pretty awesome....

    If you're late you should still check in with your HoH and see if you can make up any challenges. Shindig usually ends around 1, but definitely by last call.

    I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this really sweet app. Tabbed out allows you to pay your tab through your phone. You add your cc to the app then go to the bar and show them your code and your tab will pop up on their register. Its really great and you can pay and close out your tab (including your tip) from your table. Most of the bars in capitol hill are supporting this now (I used it at the Unicorn Saturday). I HIGHLY recommend using this as it cuts down on time waiting at the bar and makes our friendly bar tenders job a little easier.

    Yeah but I think a bunch of bars use it. Even if you use it at just one bar it's worth it, IMHO.

    So I have two tickets for Hufflepuff, one of which I won't need. Is there a way to downgrade to one through eventbrite? I've been clicking around trying to figure out a way to do it through eventbrite but I'm getting tired of trying to figure out how to do this.

    All the House Elves from each Sector of each House shall be lugging around one of these pretty things to auction off...

    Do not worry, my dear Slytherins. You will have even more special stuff than just a silly bottle to have as an auction item. Also! There will be awesome stuff for my fellow House Elves!

    SHAMELESS PLUG!
    And I believe the House Elves for Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw Death-Eater Sectors are still available! Go ask Atlus about it! You know someone wants to be sober and point and laugh on the inside while herding students from one dueling location to the next.

    We are now 2 weeks away from the drunkenest, Harry Potterest bar crawl on the westest coast. You should be excited by now. If not, you might be a Squib.

    As always there are still some details for me to hammer out (Bar routes, challenges) but everything will be in place in time.

    If you're on the waitlist do check your email on a daily basis. There haven't been many but a few tickets have been returned to the pool and are released asap.
