    Man I have been out of touch. All I do is go away for 2 weeks to show off Dragon Age: Origins to Gen-Con and Games Convention Leipzig (Germany) and I fall all out of touch. When I get back to the office I learn of this extremely cool dinner and that we could be a part of it (as "Mr. Minion" VThornheart recommends).

    So I can now confirm that the BioWare PAX team will be coming for dinner too. Yep, we love a mess o' Italian cookin' and a chance to meet up with a bunch of fellow PAX attendees. So if you were on the fence about coming, maybe your chance to meet up with some BioWare folk might finally encourage you to come. So remember:
    - delicious food
    - fun times
    - fellow PAX geeks
    - benefits the very fine Child's Play charity
    - meet up with BioWare

    We hope to see you there. :)

    Also another late addition, there will be Bawls, even though Costco doesn't carry them anymore. Astayonix works miracles.

    Have I mentioned that I love you and Astayonix?

    Also, Bioware will be in the house as well, that gets a big WOOT from me.

    then it'll just turn into a game itself... you gotta finish each plate in the time before the whistle blows lol

    Change places!

    I will definitely be looking for a good opportunity to yell that at the event.

    I still regret not starting the "One of us" chant at the end of last year's keynote. :(

    Seriously... I'm having trouble thinking what would make the Dinner more awesome that it already is right now...

    I guess if 200 people registered.

    Current Headcount: 180 pre-registrants! We're so close I can taste it! :P For those of you zero-hour procrastinators, THIS IS IT. Pre-registration closes today at 3:00pm PST, so if you've been waiting for the very last second, now is the time.

    A few additions: We've got BAWLS! Kim Swift is a confirmed guest! 8-)

    Starting this afternoon, I will be getting progressively deeper and deeper into the dinner's logistical set-up, so if you have any changes to your registration, please let me know ASAP so I can get that taken care of.

    This is going to be the BEST Pre-PAX Dinner EVER! Buy your tickets today! ;-):^:

    So what's the parking like at the venue? I know its an official Seattle Park since its on the website, but not much is listed about a parking lot, if there is one. It just says "turn into the park."

    http://www.seattle.gov/parks/parkspaces/LakeUnionPark/directions.htm

    Any info? Anyone want to carpool? I'm in north Seattle.

    There is parking, but it's neither reservable nor guaranteed. However that lot should be mostly empty at that hour of the evening.
