Hey, we're going to be doing a meetup/event thingamabob on Friday, August 29th, at a restaurant/bar a block or two from the Seattle Convention Center, probably around 8 PM. Giant Bomb staff will be in attendance, we'll talk a bit, have a few drinks; we'll probably have some stuff to give away to people who manage to make it out, as well. Technology allowing, we're going to try and stream something from the event as well.
Attendance for the event is limited by the restaurant's max capacity, but we are hoping to get around 100 people to join us inside. There are a few qualifications, though: you must be 21 or over and a current Premium subscriber to get on the list to attend. There won't be any +1's for this, so if you want a friend to come along, they will likewise have to be a current Premium subscriber and RSVP separately. You will also have to have your real first and last name saved in your profile as we'll be checking both usernames and real names at the door to confirm RSVPs. (That means that you'll have to have a valid ID with your real name on it, as well; if you can't get into a bar, you can't get into this event.) You can add that to your profile via the Settings menu if you hover over your avatar up top. You'll also need to have a valid email address tied to your account, as we'll be sending out RSVPs via email.
As I want to give a bit of time for everyone to read this before the signup time comes, I'm going to open up signups in a post in this here General Discussion forum on Thursday the 14th at twelve noon Pacific Time. We'll accept 120 signups before I lock the thread; 100 people will be on the list, and the last 20 will be in reserve in case we get cancellations from people in the first 100. So, if you're going to PAX Prime and want to attend this event, be here on the forums on Thursday at noon. Do not sign up in this thread; only sign up in the thread I will post on Thursday. If you sign up here, it won't count and you'll be sad. Feel free to ask any questions in this thread and I'll try to answer them.
