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.
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.
