PAX GROUP CHAT!!

Here is the GroupMe link!

It's the same one as last year so you can just unmute it if you still have it saved. If you're not familiar with GroupMe, it's a group messaging service that is very handy at PAX. If you don't have the app itself, I believe it can also be set up for SMS use.

PAX PRE-PARTY 2016 INFORMATION!

Who: You?! I mean, as long as you're a somewhat responsible adult who is above the age of 21.
What: A little harmless get together where we just hang out and stuff before some convention or something.
Why: Because shut up, you're not my real dad!
Where: Roanoke Park Place 2409 10th Ave E Seattle, WA (adoy) 98102
When: Thursday, September 1st. Starts around 7 p.m. and ends whenever the employees get tired of our shenanigans. So probably 8 o'clock (not really, I mean, I sure fucking hope not).
How: I know how I'm doing this thing, it's up to you to figure out your own path.

Past years have seen some good times, and seen some itty-bitty hiccups here and there, but overall have been a blast and I have been pleased to host all you fine people at the place of my work. HOWEVER! There are a couple of rules/guidelines that should be, uh. . . outlined.

-I'm sorry if you were born too late to attend, but yes, this is 21+ only. Maybe next year!

-Please don't pressure people in to doing more than they are comfortable with. Also, please don't try to impress anyone, we're just trying to have a good time.

-Since there is usually quite a large group of us, and we tend to congregate out on the wonderful back deck,but I must warn beforehand that we may have to close down the deck at 10 p.m.. We are located in a neighborhood and 10 is when the noise ordinance kicks in. Stupid weekday.

- @Rankenphile declared at the very first event that failing to tip the staff is a ban-able offense. He may correct me if I am incorrect, but I think we see eye to eye on this. Along these lines, be aware that we only have so much staff at our disposal and no waitstaff.

If there are any questions, go ahead and ask me. I dare you.

Uh, yeah! I can't wait!

KARAOKE!

I have created a Facebook event for Karaoke Night at PAX.

I have already invited local SE++ folks and other people I know off the top of my head who are going to be in town.

If I missed you, please send me a Facebook message. If I don't have you on Facebook, find my page via the forum profile page here, friend me, and ask me to send you an invite.

If you don't use Facebook, PM me here and I'll give you the deets.

    I am still sitting in the queue, and I clicked the link almost immediately.

    I am beginning to become nervous.

    I got my hotels (partially) sorted at least.

    Waited through the hotel queue only to get to "you're next!" And then the page cut to "you have left the line!"

    Thanks queue.

    Queue just updated with "We are already VERY low in badge quantities."

    Fuck.

    Fuck, fuck, fuck.

    EDIT: PAX site says that just Friday and Saturday that are low, apparently Sunday and Monday are fine. Ish.

    On the bright side, PAX South still has all badges available. Which might not be a bright side if they decide to do away with South because it's not selling well enough.

    South is selling plenty. It just has tons of capacity in comparison to demand

    I managed to get a full set, though in the height of my paranoia, I decided to get in queue on both my desktop and my phone.

    If I get in again, I will do my best to secure additional badges for you fine people.

    Has anyone who got in the queue after 1:10 gotten tickets yet? Starting to think my page is glitched.

    Glad my interview is tomorrow instead of today so I didn't miss this. In related news, because I am indeed trying to get a new job when this one ends at the end of the month, I couldn't justify dropping even more money up front or else I would have snagged some for other people too.

    But anyway, the streak continues into year 13!

    Aaaaand the hotel thing just did exactly the same thing to me again.

    I guess I'll just try again at home later and get whatever hotel scraps are available, or hope the site works for my friend.

    Acq Inc has moved around some. It's been on each of Friday and Saturday in Seattle, and was on Sunday at East this year.

    I had the PAX twitter set up for text alerts and somehow I managed to get the tweet about tickets being low before the tweet about tickets being available.

    Could be SMS network issues with your carrier.

    May end up hoping to buy an extra set off of somebody. Still nothing.

    Saturdays are now showing sold out in showclix. May be due to badges in carts, hard to tell.
