Hey, PAX Prime is around the corner and once again we’re going to be hosting a bit of a fancy to-do at a venue near the convention center in Seattle. Break out your top hats and finest champagne on Thursday evening, August 27th, and join us for a rollicking evening at Giant Bomb: Live, In Person, & Fully Clothed. Yes, that is technically the day before PAX actually begins, so plan accordingly!

party time excellent
party time excellent

This year, though, we’re going all-out: rather than settle for a small venue that can only fit a hundred people in it, we’ve reserved a much larger space at The Parlor in downtown Seattle, mere minutes from the Washington State Convention Center that PAX is held in. We’re still nailing down exactly what’s going to be transpiring, but you can expect the usual mix of Giant Bomb weirdness. Special guests? Seems pretty likely. Want to get stuff signed? Bring it along! Will we be debuting new merch that you’ll be the first to see? You bet! Spontaneity is the name of the game! (The game is also called “anything can happen.”)

If you’re a premium member, you’re going to want to be keeping an eye out, as we’re going to be opening up an RSVP list in a couple of weeks for a pre-show event that will be free and exclusively available to existing premium members. You’ll get in the door around 8 o’clock and get some time to have a drink, meet the staff, have a drink, get a seat up front for the show, have a drink, and maybe have a chance at a merch giveaway or two. We’ll have more details about that in late July. We’ll announce when the RSVPs for that event will open up ahead of time, so keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for more details.

If you don’t get on that list, don’t worry! We’ll start letting everyone else into the venue around 8:45. The show will go on around 9 PM, with the possibility of a bit of that Giant Bomb fashionable lateness, so you should have plenty of time to have a drink, find a comfortable chair, check out the newest merchandise, have a drink, have a drink, and have a drink before the show goes on.

Note that this is a 21+ venue, and also note that you don’t need a PAX badge to get in. This is a separate venue from PAX, so if you live in the Seattle-Tacoma area but weren’t planning on attending PAX, feel free to show up anyway! We’ll love you just the same.

Some of these details may change, but if they do we'll be sure to update this post. Hope you can join us!

Yep, the event space will include a full bar and food, too, I think!

This will be a great way to kick-off my first PAX Prime in my new city! I have not seen the GB crew in person since PAX East 2012 and I can't wait to meet all the newer members.

It sucks that both PAX Prime and PAX East fall during the my semester at school, so I can never attend. Oh well, hope you duders that can go enjoy.

It'll be cash, alas. We have room for hundreds of people and there's no way we could afford an open bar.

Most likely around 11:30 or 12, but we're still working it all out. Feel free to come by!

I am all over this this. I'm gonna give @austin_walker the biggest hug.

Are we going to be able to bring a +1 to the premium event if we RSVP? A guest, that is, not a longsword.

Awesome! Now I can apply the lesson I learned from last time: don't drink too much before approaching any of the crew. And write shorter questions. :P

We are going to try and make that possible, but I need to confirm it before we make it official.

We are going to have plenty of space, so I wouldn't worry about being able to make it inside.

Looking forward to checking this out this year. Also, depending on what happens with some friends I may have an extra ticket or two for PAX for anyone who missed out.
