edited January 2015 in Debate and/or Discourse
Hello! It is only 23 days to PAX South 2015, happening in San Antonio, Texas on January 23rd-25th. That means it's high time we get a thread going to find a place where we can put on our tallest cowboy hats, shiniest boots, and largest silver-adorned belt buckles to dine and drink in Texas style.

If you're in the area and not sure whether you want to come, tickets for PAX on Friday and Sunday are still available!

More importantly, if you're not sure whether you want to come, what is wrong with you. Come join us for dinner and drinks! Everyone's welcome! It'll be a hoot 'n a holler.



The Date: Saturday, Jan 24th @8PM
The Venue:

Guadalajara Grill
http://www.guadalajaragrill.us/home
Slide-show.jpg
Guadalajara hits all the marks for great quality Mexican - it's local, it's authentic, and it's made with fresh ingredients. It's practically across the street from the Convention Center, in a historic building. The food will be a combination of traditional tex-mex and Mexican interior... rest assured, there will be guacamole. Private dining will be available on the 2nd floor. Fajitas and enchiladas might seem a little too casual for those of you not used to eating Mexican food in a fine-dining environment, but I think you will be be pleasantly surprised.

The Menu
Appetizers
Guacamole – freshly prepared
and
Individual Assorted Nachos


Main Course
Fajitas - Comes on sizzling platter, served with rice, beans, tortillas,guacamole, sour cream & pico de gallo. Choice of Chicken, Veggie, Beef, Combo (chicken/beef).
or
Tilapia Guadalajara – Grilled with lemon & pepper, served with rice and avocado salad.
or
Chili Rellenos (cheese) - sides pending


Dessert
Caramel Flan
or
Sopapillas with Vanilla Ice Cream

Iced Tea, Soft Drinks, Coffee

The Price
$55/person incl. tax and tip

Price Does Not Include Alcohol

We are confirmed for 17 ppl but there is room for a few more, if we have late additions. Please let me know ASAP!

Take a couple of days to think over the menu choices and I'll let everyone know how we need that info collected.

See you in a few days!

    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb

    I'm going to be at PAX, but I am not yet sure if I'll be able to commit to this dinner. I made promises regarding the first ever SE++ PAX South group photo.

    You wouldn't want me there anyway, I'm a friggin' lefty and I would just bump elbows with you when you're trying to engorge your maws on fancy foodstuffs.

And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    @Dolarrah‌ Hey... I don't want to sound like a silly goose here but these gatherings have traditionally been an opportunity for forumers and their close friends or partners to gather and catch up over drinks and an upscale meal. We'd love to have you and your +1 or even +2 join, but I'm afraid that an additional six people who don't participate in the forum community, especially when there are only 12 confirmed forumers, isn't really in the spirit of the gathering.

    I hope you don't take it as any sort of an insult - I'd love to meet you and your wife, and I'm sure everyone else feels the same, but I've got to ask you to limit yourself to +1 or 2 folks who aren't forum members.
