PAX Prime Girls' Meetup 2014 - SEND ME YOUR FEEDBACK!!

edited September 2014 in PAX West
Here we go again, ladies!

** IMPORTANT **
Replying to the thread or RSVPing in the FB/G+ event does not guarantee entry. You MUST purchase a ticket in order to attend.

Refunds are no longer offered. You are able to transfer your ticket to another person, but will have to work out payment between you and whoever is buying your spot and then contact me with their information.

What: Welcome ladies to the fifth annual PAX Prime Girls' Meetup. What is the girls' meetup? You might ask. Well, it is a fantastic event where the ladies of PAX get together for brunch, morning cocktails and nerdy chatter Sunday morning at 10am.

Where: This year it will once again be held at the Diller Room (directions), located mere blocks from the convention center. Rob, the owner is a fantastic host and the ladies who attended last year can confirm that the food and drinks were fantastic.

When: Sunday morning at 10:00am

Who: The girls of PAX. This is a very inclusive meetup and is open to all ages and chromosome arrangement. Are you a girl who attends PAX? You are invited.

Why: Because this is an awesome way to expand your social network and meet some amazing like-minded women who are into the same nerderies as you, eat some good foodz, and drink some fantastic cocktails (as long as you are over 21).

How much: $18. The cost includes a buffet of tasty foods, and coffee, tea and juice. Drinks of the alcoholic variety will be extra and will be up to you to pay for. Wow Covet, you might say, that is rather pricy. Yes, this is more than you would pay for a cheap breakfast at IHop. However, we are getting the entire Diller Room to ourselves and there will be a nice buffet of very good food.

Eep's poem to all of the boys who will see this thread and feel the need to respond.
Dear boys,

We know you think it's witty and arty
To say that you will crash our party.
However, of our patience this is a misuse
and just makes you look like a flaming asshole *coughs* I mean, silly goose.

We have considered our motives and have decided
that girl time should be encouraged and not derided.
It's not that we don't love you bunches
but we don't need testosterone with all of our lunches.

And yes, you are free to have a boys only mob
Just start your own thread, planning one isn't my job.
Ladies, I'm excited to meet you all, oh very
So let's have this party, be girly and make merry!

FAQ
Can I come if I am under 21?
Yes! This is an all ages event, despite us being a bunch of lushes. However, you will not be allowed to drink. Do not even try as we want to stay on good terms with the Diller Room.

Can I bring my child?
Yes? However, there is not a children's ticket price nor is it an environment that I would call kid friendly in the least. It is definitely something I do not recommend for young children.

What happens if I can't come at the last minute?
When tickets go on sale there will be information about the final date you can request refunds or transfers. I make that date as close to the start of PAX as humanly possible, but after that point you are just out of luck as I will not be checking my email and monitoring that kind of thing once PAX starts.

Can I interview people for my website/blog/media outlet?
No. The purpose of the event is for the girls to get together, hang out, chat, have some “girl time” of our own. You are welcome to come to the event as an attendee, but please leave the interviews at the door.

Can I promote my <super awesome thing>?
While I’m sure that lots of girls would love your <super awesome thing>, the PAX Prime Girls’ Meetup is not an appropriate place for promotion. Do not pass out flyers, business cards, promotional buttons (Buttoneering is ok!), etc. unless someone explicitly asks you for it.

    Once all the deets get ironed out, tickets will be posted. July would probably be the earliest. :)

    Edit: So everyone can get an idea for cost, tickets last year were $17.

    I had a fantastic time the two years I went, last year included. I am looking forward to this this year. And I agree, I am usually a similar wall flower and don't do much outside of my little circle of friends. But I loved this event everytime I get the opportunity to go. Please join us!!!

    The dreaded "soon" >.<
    I shall continue monitoring this thread for my wife for the time being, but if this becomes a Blizzard Entertainment "soon", I shall frown at this thread thusly.

    Pins for trade!
