What is the Pre-PAX Dinner?
The PPD is a catered dinner that traditionally happens the Thursday before PAX and goes from 6PM to 8PM. It's an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow PAXers and if you are going to the yearly bar crawl it's also a great place to get some food before you go get shitfaced! Just like last year this is a buffet spread so go fucking nuts and eat all the things!

Where is the Pre-PAX Dinner?
Barca! http://www.barcaseattle.com/ http://www.schmap.me/barca.seattle/

Who's feeding our faces!?
The fantastic crew from Seasoned in Seattle! http://www.seasonedinseattle.com/
They catered the dinner last year and did a fantastic job. I'm really glad to have them back on board for this year's Dinner!

The Menu!
Everything is gluten free

Fragrant Basmati Rice
Passion Fruit Fusion - Field & spinach greens with Maracuja vinaigrett topped with seasonal berries, mandarin orange, shallots, walnuts and feta
Broccoli & Cauliflower Mornay - Steamed broccoli and cauliflower florets served with a savory Gruyere & Gouda Mornay sauce
Tofu Curry - Seared tofu and sauteed onions and red peppers in a velvety smooth green curry & coconut sauce
Florentina - Chicken Florentine, seared boneless breasts, tender spinach, rich Fume Blanc sauce with hints of cayenne and nutmeg
Fusion BBQ Ribs - Boneless ribs, smoked and braised in a sweet ginger BBQ sauce
Watermelon & Shaved Fennel - Sweet & seedless watermelon with shaved fennel, fresh herbs and a zingy Zinfandel vinaigrette <-- YES, IT'S BACK

Tickets this year are $29.48!

FAQ
Q: Do I need to purchase each ticket under a different name for each guest or will one name for all tickets work?
A: Either way works for me! Just so long as the amount of friends you show up with matches up with the number of tickets you purchased.

Q: Are you making any money off of this?
A: Nope! This is entirely non-profit. If anyone is still not convinced I'll be glad to post my invoices and what not.

Q: When is the last day to get a ticket?
A: As long as sales are good I'll let the ticket sales run till the start of the event. If not, I'll have to cut them off about two weeks early so that I can coordinate a smaller event with the caterer.

Q: Can I wear my bar crawl costume to this?
A: Yep!

Q: What's the dress code?
A: Street clothes are fine after all, you're gonna be dining with people in post-apoc costumes.

    the menu needs more watermelon ;)
    That watermelon dish is going to be the death of me.
    <3 you all.
    nice.. when is the last day to get this ticket?
    Assuming sales are solid they'll be available till the day of the dinner. If I fall short I'll have to cut them off about two weeks prior to the event. Question added to the FAQ.

    Remember folks, this is right before the Mad PAX bar crawl and is a great place to get some food before getting hammered!

    this is also just round the corner (ok and two block's up) from where the tinybuild party is for anyone going to that rather than the bar crawl

    Tickets bought! I shall be there with the Forum Badges so if you attend this event you will pick them up from there and not have to answer any questions if you collected them from the BYOC desk! This is what we call a good thing.

    Yo, I've never gotten to go to one of these because I'm usually getting into Seattle just in time to make it to the bar crawl, but this year my fight gets in at noon. Bought a ticket but I have a question. What's the dress code? Because I have to lead the Bullet Club right after this.

    I'm buying a ticket too, for you I'd probably say a coat with LED lights on it.

    Feel feel to wear your bar crawl gear! Traditionally the dinner has been half full of people in wizard robes and this year I expect it to be half full of post-apoc warriors.

    General dress code is "whatever, just don't show up naked or some shit like that."

    You can change everything you want on that menu if you want @TOGSolid, but people will riot with torches and pitchforks if you touch that Watermelon & Fennel dish.

    also, got my ticket.

    Due to a need to reschedule my bus, I may not have enough time to stop by the hostel before heading to the dinner. Would it be okay to bring my luggage along to the dinner??
