PAX South 2016 Fancy Dinner Thread is Fashionably Late - Location & Menu Added

Hello y'all!

Better late than never, this is the official signup thread for the PAX South 2016 Fancy dinner. But what is it, you ask?

The Fancy Dinner Tradition
PAX East D&D has, for as long as I've been a forum member, brought folks together one night during PAX to class up the joint: a semi-formal prix fixe dinner with drinks where you can get your evening wear out or put on a coat and tie (full windsor you heathen) and talk about Important Things like Adults Do. A gathering where we can put faces to names and be people sharing food and conversation, rather than forum handles talking past each other. It's been a fantastic time every chance I've gotten to go, so when South opened up in 2015 we had the inaugural dinner at Guadalajara right next to the convention center.

It's like the PAX East dinner, but... a little more southern. In other words, you can wear your fancy boots, but spurs are déclassé and remember - take your hat off at the table, fella-identifiers.


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, but I think you will be be pleasantly surprised.


When does it happen?
This year's dinner will happen on Friday, Jan 29th at 8:00PM. Dinner served at 8:30.


How do I get there?
Guadalajara Grill is walking distance from the Convention Center. The address is:

    In like flynn.

    I agree that a private room is nicer than a public room at a nicer restaurant.

    <3 spool thanks for putting this together again

    I'm in a similar position to FCC and I'll be at PAX South but blew pretty much every cent of disposable income on just being able to go. There's no way a fancy dinner fits into the budget. Sorry. :(

    I don't have a problem with the concept.

    I have a problem with you misspelling "prix fixe" while pretending like you know what's up.

    Please add a +1 for me, and fix my name ffs!

    Just so it's said -
    As already demonstrated by our predecessor, PAX East Fancy Dinner, attending PAX is not a requirement for attending Fancy Dinner. There's plenty of other stuff to do in San Antonio, and there will be a constant stream of forum folk to hang with at all hours.

    I'm in the same boat as you.

    Hey folks, we are at that time where if you want to send me money rather than pay in cash, you need to PM me so you can get my email address for the Google Wallet transaction. Remember I also have Venmo, but I do not accept Paypal.

    Just to avoid awkwardness, if you're going to bring bills, please come on in and get a drink and then come find me asap. I don't want to leave the check until after we're served - I'm going to get it paid as soon as I have the full balance in hand.

    Thanks! I'm super excited to see you all! :):)
