Okay, this is for everybody who will be in Bellevue by Thursday August 24th.
There has already been expressed interest in a dying poll (go vote if you can find the poll, it was still on the first page as of this post) about what the Pre-PAX movie should be. There has also been the Pre-PAX dinner which I have not attended before. I am proposing that we find a restaurant near the hotels/PAX area and reserve the whole damned thing. A little while ago, I called Azteca to see if we could reserve for an insane number of people which I assumed would come to dinner if there was in fact a semi-official dinner. They spoke of essential closing the restaurant to everybody but the PAX eaters. There were several methods of food service they mentioned, including serving everybody from a small selection of the meno or having a buffet of some kind. Personally, I'm in favor of the buffet, with some kind of pay as you enter setup. Unfortunately, I live far away from the west coast, which makes it difficult when it comes to finding nice dining for the Pre-PAXness. Is there a Seattle local willing to take on the challenge of setting up restaurant goodness for the satisfied stomaches of all?
