PAX East Fancy Dinner 2018 (!)

Listen:

100% of the time I've been to any PAX, anywhere, I've attended the PAX East Fancy Dinner in 2017. Because no one else is man enough to do it I'm going to make sure it happens again in 2018. This is a thread for making that happen and it will be updated and modified as needed.

FAQ!

When is it?

It's going to be Friday, April 6th at something PM.

Where is it?

We don't know yet. Some place in or around Boston that serves food and drink and caters to the fanciest of lads and lasses.

How much will it cost?


TBD, but likely $60-$80 or so. You'll need to get that to me at some point before PAX. Venmo will work, as will other things.

What do I, as a fancy fellow, need to do right now?

Tell me if you're coming. The crone who's guiding me in this told me I need to get a headcount soon. Tell me if you have a +1.

Is there more to come?

You bet your bottom dollar.

Attendees

    I AM COMING TO THIS THING SIX AND I WILL POTENTIALLY HUG BOTH YOU AND YOUR WIFE IF NOT THEN A HEARTY HANDSHAKE

    I will not have a +1 because I am cold and alone....so very alone

    Can I pay you with something that isn't Venmo?

    I mean I'd like to come, but I am also a man of principle and integrity and I swore a blood oath regarding Paypal many years ago.

    I'm also interested in attending and unlikely to pay with Venmo

    Yeah, no problem

    I don't care about Venmo. @Hakkekage said I needed Venmo so that's what I put here. I don't really care how you pay as long as you pay beforehand.

    I said you needed Venmo because I made a Venmo account last year specifically for Fancy Dinner in order to centralize payments in one easily trackable spot. I conformed my damn self to YOU motherfuckers

    I remember vaguely setting the drop-dead pay date for two days prior to the event and being VERY forceful about hunting people down and compelling timely payment. With a 100% success rate.

    So I probably can't commit to this. I'll probably still be at the con with IRL friends, but how late do you guys usually go with this? Do you guys ever end up in a more crashable state after the food has been consumed?

    Usually after dinner we wander to a nearby bar - last time we also went for ice cream

    Also ppups, pinecone and I have rented a whole house for this and while it's a little bit of a journey out it'll be good for post dinner boardgames or w/e

    It's about 20min from the convention by car; if we're eating in Cambridge again it'll be closer. It's in Somerville

    I'm ok with receiving checks! I just snap a photo with my phone and rip them up on the spot. Easy.

    It's when I'm asked to WRITE a check. jfc it's 2018.

    I 100% can't attend PAX this year, which sucks on its own, but hopefully someone is still interested in helping get this going. Please PM me - Spool's offered to help out, but we need someone local.

    Hello friends, it is two weeks away and we do not have a venue picked + only 7 (!!!) signups. Please ping your interest here if you plan to attend, and somebody please let me know what the name of last year's venue was! I'm reaching out to them and one other location to get pricing and availability so we can hopefully still make this happen... but honestly with less than 10 attendees it doesn't look likely. We really need another 5-7 ppl to sign up pretty much immediately, so if you're going to PAX East and want to continue this venerable tradition, now is the time to speak up!!
