    Phew, okay, I'm back on the interwebs. Bombarded by draconian firewall restrictions, but I am on the interwebs just the same. =)

    That_Guy, I totally understand the situation you're in. Let us know how the situation goes, I hope that we can see you there if possible. =)

    That's completely up to them and whoever they want to give their tickets to.

    I have recently come into a minor windfall of money.

    I would be happy to donate to a 'bottled Water for pre Pax Dinner" fund. I know QFC has the palettes of like 12 bottles for like $5-$8, so if we got like... 20 of those... i mean, I'm sure not everyone will want water...

    I would offer to buy and bring a few, but I will be late to the dinner (work til 7 that night). So I will help fund it with like.. some money.

    If anyone wants to organize the "Bring Water to the prePAX dinner", PM me and I'll work out some monies for you.

    We planned to have water there anyway, but if you want to donate $$ towards that, ElectricTurtle and I would be happy to take your donation. Only the menu items listed on the OP are covered by the caterer. They wanted way too much for cutlery, plates, cups, napkins, beverages (water, Bawls, Coke products), table coverings, etc. So, we opted to get those things at our local Costco to keep the cost/person lower. So, to that end, those items are donations from ElectricTurtle and me and aren't factored into the price of tickets. We had always planned on providing them for the community, but if there are those who want to donate, you won't be turned away :)

    I bet that there are no nuts. I can't think of any Italian dinner food that has nuts in it. Of course you should get official
    word from the organizers.

    It is easy for me to see,
    That this thread is too important to be,
    On forum page 2, or even 3.
    That is why it is decidedly,
    Prudent for me to take the jump,
    And give this thread a bump!

    I forgot that this year I am arriving on Wednesday afternoon and not Thursday. So I will be in Seattle without
    a purpose (Agent Smith sayz, "It is purpose that drives us, purpose that binds us, upholds us, it is purpose that
    defines us...") all Wednesday afternoon and all Thursday morning and afternoon.

    So if you need any help doing stuff on Wednesday and Thursday give me a jingle. I think you have my cell #.

    i drove way more than the other two in my car so i didn't get as much of a chance to sleep... and who can sleep when they're on they're to PAX for the first time? and generally on road trips i'm the one driving because i'm the only one of my friends that trusts thier driving abilities >.>
