PaizoCon 2014!

Meet and Eat 2009


PaizoCon

1 to 50 of 127 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | next > last >>
Taldor PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

OK, folks! This is the thread for our pre-PaizoCon Meet and Eat event.

The proposed restaurant to eat at this year: The Crab Pot.

The specialty here is the Seafeast. Essentially, the Seafeasts are a big bowl of select clams, mussels, shrimp, crab, with potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, and sausage. They put butcher paper down on the table, and dump the bowl out on it. You get a cracker, mallet, and cutting board and go to it!

If seafood isn't your thing, they do have burgers and salads.

Happy Hour runs from 4pm to 7pm. We could do dinner at 6pm, or we could decide to sit down at 7pm, after happy hour subsides.

Now, to see what the interest is, and to plan for it, I'd like a show of virtual hands here....who's in?

*sniff, sniff* My flight does not get in until 9pm ... no pummeling tasty seafood with mallets for me. :(

But would be up for drinks after 10pm, hotel bar or otherwise.

Andoran Contributor, RPG Superstar 2012

My flight gets in at 8PM, so I'll probably join you for drinks. Oh well, no chicken at the certainly excellent seafood restaurant for me.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2008 Top 6, Contributor

I'll do my best to be there.

Taldor

Depends on how early I can talk my husband into leaving on Thursday to drive over from the east side. Since it's the week after my birthday, chances are fairly decent. ;-)

So make that a tentative 3-person reservation, since we'll be driving over with another friend.


I will try to make it inside this time.

My flight should get there with enough time to get there. I just need to be able to get there.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16, 2012 Top 32

I'm just a short drive away so:

Count me in, whatever the time.

Qadira

I will be there. Yes to Happy Hour

Kosovo0140 and I will be there, if we can find a way to get there from the hotel.

EDIT: I just google mapped it. Its only half a mile from the hotel. I think we can make that. However, if anyone wanted to stop by and pick us up....

Taldor PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

So, by my count, we have 9-10 people attending so far?

Anyone else? I'd like to get the reservations in soon!

Hey Tim! Count me in! The meet and greet was really fun last year. And then when you go to the con, you feel as if you already know a lot of people.

BTW, how spendy is this place?

Check the link at the top...Seafeasts can be pricey ($15-$30), but the rest is OK. Really your call on what is pricey or not. When I moved out to Seattle from the midwest, I thought EVERYTHING was expensive.

I also can recommend a fun Korean Grill place down in the Factoria/I-90 area. It's got the hibachi grill in the table and everything!

Actually, there are 2 Korean places in Bellevue....South Gate Garden and Blue Ginger. Both are good, but I was referring to South Gate.

Not sure about the "honest-to-god" qualifier, but they do serve it, along with many other little pickled and salted sidedishes (banchan).

Hey, my girlfriend and I are getting in around noon Thursday and would love to join in and meet some people for the con. Count two of us in!

Cheliax

You guys are making me hungry. I couldn't even convince my wife to let me go to the Con. Someone order the Crab and crab and crab and let me know how it is. If possible, also get me the recipe for the crab salad.

My flight arrives too late, and I don't eat seafood (sorry!). Sounds like you'll have fun though!

Qadira

Have we set a time for this Crab Meet yet?

Taldor PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

Zuxius wrote:

I'd say that we could meet up there at 5:30-6PM, partake of happy hour, and then when we have assembled enough people, get our tables at 7 PM.

I count about 14 people now. Anyone else??

Shadow Lodge Contributor, RPG Superstar 2010 Top 8

This would be on the 11th? Cause I'd be down for some D-Licious seafoods.

Taldor PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

DOH!

Yes, this Meet and Eat at the Crab Pot is on Thursday, June 11th, 2009.

We will start meeting at 5:30-6:00 for the Happy Hour stuff, and move to our tables by 7PM. At least, I think that'll be the plan.

15 people now. Anyone else?

Me flight doesn't arrive until 5:30pm in Seattle on Thursday... Alas. :(

Otherwise, I would be game.


Is this a family friendly event or were you thinking adults only? We are flying in with our 3 teen girls, youngest is 11.

Totally family friendly as far as I'm concerned. Bringing the kids to happy hour wouldn't probably be doable, I'm sure, but you can certainly bring everyone to dinner! Kids have to enjoy wackin' their food!!

Sounds good but I'm still working on finalizing our plans for that day. We are planning on doing some sightseeing but it would be fun to meet some people before the con on Friday. I'll talk to hubby! :)

Dinner at 7 PM. The drinks will be out, but at least you have the dinner.

Dangit! I love that restaurant.

Thank you for your sacrifice Paris!

I will be making some videos for PaizoCon '09, if it will help any.

Wow. Thanks, Zuxius. That would be very nice of you. Let me know after the con and I'll pass you my contact info. (I'll pay for shipping, too.)

And you're welcome, too. I may gripe about it a little, but I've got a pretty good life and I'm proud of what I do. I'll get to a PaizoCon one day (which, of course, means that you Paizonians need to keep doing this ;-) ). And I did write one of the stories in the fanzine Lilith and Hugo have been working so hard on, so I'm participating in my own way.

I hope you guys have a great meal. Crack open a beer and a dungeness crab for me!

Cheers!
Paris

PS - Hey! I just learned this when I had to check my spelling...Did you know that the scientific name of the dungeness crab is cancer magister? Anyway, I found that interesting.

"Cancer magister"? That rules.

I may try to come by to socialize, but alas the Crab Pot is not in my budget for actually having dinner.

Seriously, I tried to pick somewhere this year that wasn't TOO pricey. There are inexpensive options here!

We are doing the happy hour thing until 7 pm. If you eat from the bar, they have a decent selection of food (burgers, fried seafood, etc). That selection is available until 9 pm on Thursday.

Also, their beginner seafeast is only $14.95 per person, which will be plenty of food, believe me.

I may be confusing it with the Fisherman over on the Seattle waterfront, which is a similar style of place but about double the price (maybe double the food too for all I know - never been).

I might be able to squeeze out for that. I have to see about some time off from work - I actually just recently started working Thursday nights (good timing, eh?).

Cool, it won't be hard to send. However, I will be posting all of them on UTube for your viewing pleasure abroad.

Andoran

Well, if you'll be posting them, then there's no need to send anything. I'll have to wait until I'm able to get to a non-government internet access area, since YouTube is verboten. But I don't mind the wait. Thanks, again!

Is it a sign of paranoia that when I first saw the title "Meet and Eat 2009" I thought "cannibal convention"?

I blame the "cereal convention" from Sandman.

5:30 - 6:00pm Happy Hour!

7:00pm Dinner!

Zux has given the approx. meeting times....not durations, silly.

Happy Hour at the Crab Pot runs from 4-7 PM.

I am suggesting folks meet up for Happy Hour between 5:30 and 6 PM. We can go to dinner at any time, really, but I suggested 7PM, so that some of the late arrivals could have dinner with everyone.

Sounds good. Not as good as the following, but good:

5:30pm Steal Underpants
6:00pm ?
7:00pm PROFIT!


Myself and my wife will be there


I will be there (after a Paizo cookie delivery, of course).

Taldor PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

I have 24 people for the head count right now. That includes everyone who posted YES here, plus Hugo (who's with me), Wyvern and his wife, and assumes Benchak is dragging N'wah along (for the happy hour of course).

So, 24 and counting......

24 always has a countdown. It's part of the gimmick of the show, silly... :)

I'm curious about this Meet-and-Eat thing. One, I love food. Two, I've never been to Seattle and I'm interested in the food there. But three, I have no transportation to easily get around and experience any of it. I'm taking the shuttle from the airport to the hotel and won't have a rental car...or know my way around.

If there's a means to somehow get to this Meet-and-Eat event, I wouldn't mind participating.
