I'm going to make this annoucment short and sweet
Ladies and gentlemen, we have finally launched. Documents have been signed, checks have been written, and it's time for this train to leave the station. So, here are the final dinner details:Pre-PAX 2008 Dinner
WHERE: Naval Reserve Building - Great Hall
860 Terry Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
WHEN: August 28, 2008 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
WHAT: Meet and greet your fellow attendees over a tasty Italian buffet (see below for specifics). Extras planned but not guaranteed: Random multimedia, a short keynote by Chris Taylor, Kim Swift hanging out with some other people from Valve, and if attendance exceeds 200 people (and we don't have unforseen cost overruns), any excess money will be donated to Childs' Play! So, bring as many friends as you can, it's for the children. (That's supposed to be sarcastic, not a guilt trip.)
ADMISSION: $30/person. All money goes directly to costs. Any money in excess of costs will be donated to the Childs' Play Charity.
This is the final countdown, so don't miss our third and greatest year. No waves! No haggling over bills and tax rates! w00t!

An added plus this year is that the Pre-PAX 2008 Dinner will be featured in the PAX08 DVD. Porkfry and a film crew will be there at the beginning of the dinner to record (and probably interview a few folks). This is the first time pre-PAX events will be featured on the official DVD. Come and be a part of PAX history! Food Allergy Alert: The mix used to make the strawberry shortcake dessert may be made with nuts. Assume all other food will be made in an environment where nuts, wheat, soy, shellfish, and other allergens are (or may be) present.
SEE YOU GUYS THERE!
