Dim Sum Run!


PaizoCon General Discussion

Sovereign Court Wayfinder, PaizoCon Founder

So, dim sum. I had planned on having a Sunday "brunch" of sorts by leading a pack of you to a nearby dim sum restaurant.

Looking at the PaizoCon schedule for Sunday, there will be a lot of games running from 8 to noon. A 10:30 dim sum run would prevent playing in that morning session. Unfortunately, going for dim sum after 12 would result in a seriously long wait, and probably would limit the selection once (if) we were seated.

Does that make a difference for anyone?

Alternatively, someone asked if dim sum could be done before the Con starts on Friday. Answer: Yes...sort of. Top Gun opens on Friday at 11 AM. PaizoCon events start on Friday at noon-sharp. Which then poses the question: Can a group of 10+ people eat dim sum in under 1 hr? Answer: Probably not. It'd be cutting it awfully close, especially if you want to sit down at your game promptly at noon.

So...who's still interested? Sunday? Friday?


I'm scheduled to run a session Sunday morning. Not sure how many sessions are running concurrently...maybe four or five? So that probably excludes 20-25 people. A pretty small fraction of those attending to be sure...but some of those players/dms will likely be sad to miss out on your event. :(

I only REALLY like those little steamed BBQ pork buns (yum!) so dim sum is usually wasted on me (too fishy) anyway :)

Count me interested. I'd be willing for either time frame and plan accordingly when bidding for spots. There is always the open gaming area if worse comes to worse.

So, a LINKY for Top Gun Seafood.

The Dim Sum Run is turning out to be tricky. No matter what, it will interfere with gaming sessions that start or run during lunchtime.

Friday, the restaurant opens at 11 AM, giving us less than an hour to eat and get back to the hotel before PaizoCon starts at noon. Not an issue with folks that aren't gaming until 1 or 2 PM.

Saturday, the restaurant opens for dim sum at 10 AM. But this is a busy day of gaming at PaizoCon....personally, I am aiming to eat at 3 Pigs BBQ!

Sunday, the restaurant opens for dim sum at 10 AM. Sunday is a VERY popular day to go have dim sum, and by 10:30 there will be a waiting list starting. So, if we go on Sunday, we go EARLY.

Man, that looks real good. Since I am not going to be RPGing so much at this PaizoCon, I may hit all these restaurants in the interim.

Hey ALL,

I have been hitting this Con pretty hard, so my posting on the boards here has been curtailed the entire time....

Nevertheless, we ARE doing DIM SUM today...meeting at the reg desk area at 10:15 or so, to migrate to Top Gun for "brunch".

Sorry I missed it Tim, but I was going through Decline of Glory ... unconscious through a chunk of it ... that -4 Con curse for the duration of the Con and the Fortune's Void curse kicked my butt.

Thanks for the Dim Sum, Tim. Was worth being crammed into the back of the car.

Next year, I'll advertise it better. Dim sum is better with lots of people.

As it was, the timing as near perfect. We left the hotel at 10:30, got to the restaurant at 10:45, and were immediately seated. By 11:30, the place was packed and there was a line of people waiting.

Hugo and I got lucky to go along with this. We were both scheduled to run a Tide of Morning game, but as it was there were only 11-12 people so only two tables were needed. Both of us decided to wander around, and ran into Tim.

Long story short, we both lost our Dim Sum virginity that day (neither myself or Hugo had really had it before). It was delicious.

And Tim isn't exaggerating, the place was PACKED. We got there with no line, but within 10 minutes there was a line all the way out to the back. You had to fight to get to the restroom.
