    I think it's pretty clear everyone who's anyone will come. After all, we can get first dibs on everyone's buttons before we all run out!

    Heh, try third dibs! :D Well, for me anyways. I've got the dinner and MMTour, they get first/second dibs, respectively :P

    I get to start trading when I get to my room, how do you like them apples.

    Actually, I have VThornheart's buttons, so I've technically already started.

    Well, you cheat, thats all I have to say! Also, if I decide to go to the lunch on friday, I could start trading there :D

    hate to break it to you, but i doubt anyone else has buttons. but good luck with that.
    If I can convince my friend to drive me I'll bring my buttons at least

    I'm so in. Though, my first pick is gonna be the crumpets place as well, and it looks like I'm not alone :-)

    If it looks like a majority of us are headed to crumpets, then we should stagger the waves so we don't overwhelm the staff. Or at least call them a week or two ahead of time so they're properly staffed for hungry gamers :-)

    well, apperently they handle the early morning rush just fine every day. and also, as much as i would like to enjoy a crumpet, i may opt for humbao. so i don't think it'll be a huge issue.

    I find the Mee Sum Bakery to be substandard to others in the ID proper, with the exception of their crab rangoon-type things which kick ass. However I'm thinking of organizing a dim sum group to go to Honey Court, China Gate, or House of Hong for some real baozi.

    I don't even know what you are talking about.

    That probably means I should go with you.

    It depends on how non-adjusted I am to the time zone. I have this tendency to wake up uber-early for at least the first day of PAX.

    I'd be up for it... as long as I'm awake at 7am which is questionable when I'm until 4 or 5am

    To my knowledge, yes, it's still on at 9am. however, if people do want to go at 7, be my guest. i just won't be there before 9, due to getting into my costume :/

    Just to warn you guys, defecting is a serious offense. Execution is allowed, but I think the standard punishment is "no buttons for you!"

    Dude, it's a 3 hour difference. Meaning when it's noon EDT, it's 9am PDT. So if anything, you'll be more awake in the mornings than you are normally.

    What, like Australia? That's about where you'd have to be for 7 am PST to feel like 11 am.

    No, 11am was only mentioned because that's when I usually force myself out of bed, and I don't want to sleep that late during PAX. If I had a time change like Moe it would be helpful, but I don't.

    *Finishes wrestling an alligator*

    Sorry for the long absence, folks. I've had a broken computer and a vacation. One of these experiences was quite nice. I'll let you guys decide which! :P
    Honestly I think it should be pretty informal, a lot of us aren't morning people so I'm not sure depending on people's punctuality will contribute to the success of this. Pretty much if you miss the group then just walk down to Pike Place Market, I'm sure we'll be easy enough to find.

    True dat. I'm not in the mood to baby-sit so be on time or meet us down there. I won't be doing a headcount because many people's plans change and I don't want to hold up the group.

    For those going early, hopefully we'll meet up with you down there. We chose 9AM to be early but not too early. Plus many of the restaurants aren't open until 9AM. Now don't ask me why a restaurant serving breakfast would open at a leisurely 9AM. :x For some 9AM seemed early but I know you overacheivers/insomniacs will want to go earlier, so hopefully you're still hanging around when we all get there. We should be pretty easy to spot bedecked, as we will be, in forum buttons! 8-)

    Welcome back Mr. T! I must say, in the photos, you kinda look like a white Mr. T. Its very weird.

    and also, for the name thing, those of us that have met up IRL at the Pre-PAX seattlite luncheon have found that in the end its just easier to remember someone's forumer name then to go "okay, so he's John, she's Sue, and wait, we had three Steves?"

    I just realized something... but, PAX on Friday doesn't start until 2:00PM. I don't want to wait in a line for 4 hours, even if I want to go bug the Roosterteeth guys first.

    Maybe we should wait until later, and make it a brunch.

    Its breakfast, because the REST of us want to wait in line. Thats half the fun of the first day!

    Now if you want to brunch, thats cool! There are probably others willing to do so.

    But I really vote for the main event to be breakfast, and NO later than 9.
