    Hey @TogSolid - thanks for doing such a great job with this event every year! It takes a lot of planning and coordination time before hand to pull it off, and everyone always has a great time.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    Get him a ticket and a fake moustache, obviously.

    Better that than the other way around I would think

    Doofenshmirtz: Wow, if I had a nickel for every time I was doomed by a puppet, I'd have two nickels, which isn't a lot, but it's weird that it happened twice, right?

    If it's a suitably dapper moustache I might let the fake ticket slide.

    And this is why I want to be you if I ever grow up. :)

    Well for the first time in PAX Prime history I shall be attending the Pre-PAX dinner. This means that I shall be handing out the forum badges at this event as well as the Pre-PAX board game night at the Sheraton. Note that you will not have an answer any questions if you pick up a badge from either of these events :)

    Aw crap. I may have to go now even if I don't eat. @TOGSolid‌ can I show up if I promise not to eat anything and only socialize? ;) (I don't eat sugar.) Anyway, I think I know the "don't be a dick" answer to this and that is to buy a ticket anyway, just for inhabiting the space.

    If you're not eating then no big deal. If you think you might grab some salad or something to nom on then get a ticket. I like to keep things simple. :smiley:

    Send the spawn to game at the Sheraton and catch them later. I will be there if youngest spawn wants to help :)

    You guys can show up in street clothes or the finest dinner attire ever. Hell, show up in a costume if you want. I'll be in my bar crawl attire (as seen in my avatar here) and there will probably be a few people running around in wizard robes and what not also for the crawl so feel free to have fun with it!

    I'll put a note in the OP about it.

    Heck, showing up dressed down as far as Carl is cool! (From one who knows.) PS: Sorry TOG, I can't get away from work early enough to get to the dinner this year.

    No ticket, no snazzy green wrist band at the door. No snazzy green wrist band at the door, no food!

    Unless you work at Barca's in which case I always give them all free food every year.

    Just got tickets for the dinner. Looking forward to meeting some people pre-PAX!

    TOGSolid, thanks for doing so much planning for this. How many people typically attend the dinner?

    The past two years I've been maxed out. Usually I'm sold out by now, actually. This year is a weird outlier but ticket sales have picked up a bit.

    Thanks for responding, but how many people equals max capacity/approx attendance for this? (First year, so I have no reference point)
    Glad ticket sales have been picking up!

    Last year it was capped at 120. So I'm guessing 120.

    Just a suggestion - it sounds like tickets are still available, but when I read the thread title I thought that was saying it was sold out. Also I was sure I'd seen that "one week left until ticket sales end" a lot longer than a week ago, so I haven't even been bothering to read the thread, figuring I had missed out.

    The thread title says "One week until ticket sales end 60% sold out"

    doesn't that mean 40% are still left?

    Roughly, since that title was put up a few days ago.

    Yup!

    If I sell out it's going to say in big bold letters that the event is sold out.

    EDIT: I went ahead and redid the thread title anyway.

    Ticket sales are finished! There was a pretty awesome last minute rush and while the PPD didn't sell out, we did way better than I was expecting with 92 out of 119 tickets sold (the 120th ticket is me :D) See everyone at the dinner!
