Hey Guys I've gone to PAX twice, 09 will be my third year. I'm sure we could find some cool restaraunt to meet up at and have something to eat. Anyone else think this is a good idea?
Let's organize a RT lunch or something

This will be our third time to attend and I'm just a lil' Southward...in Tacoma, WA! I hope to actually get INTO the Rooster Teeth Forum this year, never been able to get in *sigh*...may be out again this year, too, since I'll be 8+ months preggers at that time! *shaking fist at fate* ONE YEAR, doggone it.
But, yeah, would be totally up for getting together at some point!
Hugs, gotta go chase my firstborn, and the sun's ACTUALLY OUT TODAY *weird up here* so gonna get her out of the house!

Okies, so...hmmm...all the restaurants I've been to around the Seattle area have been a tight squeeze, depending on what time of day you decide to eat in. Any locals know of a big enough place to take all of us, forseeing it maybe being a party of say 10+...may need a whole room to ourselves, but what a tip for whatever waitstaff that night! Alcohol on premises is a necessary (I'll be the one with plain water and lemon, hehe). GUINNESS IS A WIN in this family! We also have a toddler that tags along with us, not sure if others will have their little ones with them or not.
So: Good size Accomadations
Alcohol (Guinness would be so verra niiiiice)
Kid-Friendly? (i.e. bathroom changing station, high chair)
I'm down here in Tacoma, but guess I could scour the local dining sites to see what restaurants are near our venue!

TOUCHE, SIR! You make a very valid point....AS LONG AS THEY HAVE SOME GOOD PORTERS AND STOUTS.
Haven't read up on those...lemme go see...is Dick's that one place where they ACT LIKE DICKS? Oooo, Dick's Last Resort? hehe, that would be a good time
Taphouse, haven't been, YET. hehe
Hugs...I'ma go check these out.

Ok, I looked for a Dicks and only found drive-ins, which aren't a go because some or most coming to this luncheon or dinner will be on foot from the Expo. And Alehouse, there are several, but I didn't find one within walking distance of the Expo.
I'm looking at Restaurant near (within at least 2 blocks) distance from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. Any more ideas?
NIBBLING ON RABBIT FOOD, hehe

You can walk up to Dick's and order actually. There's one probably < 1 mile from the convention center, so we can just walk up and order and either eat on the way back or hang out at the ghetto table they have there.
Apart from the Taphouse there's the Fox Sports Bar and Grill, but fuck that the Taphouse is like infinity times better. The only other restaurants I know around downtown are way to classy of a joint for a group like us.

Ugh, looked for nearby restaurants. There IS a brewery nearby, within 2-3 blocks Rockbottom Brewery Seattle. Also, right across the street from the Trade Center is The Cheesecake Factory. There's Bambuza nearby on the other side. Gameworks is near there, too, it seems!
So, anybody else got some ideas? I've got to go put a Nyssa~kitten to bed, her "Chaos Spree" is finally winding down and she's yawning and starting to turn back into lil' angel *phew*.

This will also be my third PAX. W00T for 07ers!
Anyway, this lunch idea sounds great.
There's always Shorty's for great hot dog choices and beer. Also quite cheap.
Its like an eight block walk from the convention center, but they have old school pinball machines up the whazoo.
Shit, I can't believe I just said up the whazoo. lol.
we still got quite awhile.
So, this lunch; happen it will!
Also, PAXpeople should add me.
Because, you know, PAXpeople fucking rock.

Okies, the Taphouse wasn't showing up in my searches before (prob, cuz I was typing in Alehouse like a scatterbrain, my toddler was probably tearing through our movies at that time).
I found it, though, and YEAH, ITS RIGHT NEAR THE CONVENTION CENTER. Way more do-able for peeps, depending on who we have wanting to come, we should keep it as close and accessible, as possible.
That one's a definite possibility, as well, lemme link it for others, one sec.
There we go: Taphouse, Seattle Downtown
Hugs, hope this helps, NICE SUGGESTION, Tb0ne!

Yup, I go to school about half a mile from the Taphouse so I know it well. Their happy hour deals are pretty killer too. 2 bucks for a sushi roll and half price appetizers. They also do create your own sampler so you can get four small beers at a go to try more than one.

*rubbing hands together in evil contemplation*
Our plan seems to be coming together so well! Mwahaha!
The Taphouse sounds like a sweet place to host a little get-together, will still have to feel it out with the others and see what everyone else thinks about having it there, or elsewhere.
AT LEAST WE'RE NOT PROCRASTINATING, WHAT! WHAT!
Hugs to Laird, Ilikeme, Tb0ne, and Rocketsauce(I love yoooouuuu!!!)!

Oh, well, nevermind, that's a no-go for us, then. We have an 18 month old that goes everywhere with us. She'll be attending PAX, as she did last year, and she'll have on her PAX stuff, as well.
So *le sigh* grrrrrr, man, that place sounded pretty good, too. There's no place nearby that serves beer and drinks and allows all ages? I know that some of the PAX attendees who may want to come along to lunch/dinner...may be under 21.
GOTTA BE SOMETHING, I KNOW IT!
