The meetup will begin at 5:30 PM on Saturday, February 15th. Ending time is set for 9:30 PM, but if past experience is anything to go by, folks may be around until 11 PM+.
You do not have to attend PantheaCon to come to this meetup. It will be held in Arethinn and Celebron's hotel room, so no badge is required to enter. An RSVP is appreciated, but not required. However, if you are planning to drive to the con just for this meetup, see the note on parking at the end of this announcement. (PantheaCon website, Hotel website)
Be aware that there may be unaccompanied minors present. The meetup will be advertised via flyers and the majority of attendees will come from the general con population, which includes minors. This is not an "adult" topic, so there will be no attempt to "bounce" those who are under 18. Plan for yourself accordingly.
Some snacks and drinks will be provided, including some alcoholic beverages (cider, wine) only for those 21+ with valid photo ID. Please bring your own cup or glass if you can! Feel free to bring food or drink to share, though there is not a lot of table space. If you choose to bring something, please be prepared to take it away again if it's not consumed.
Donations of a few dollars towards the cost of food, drink, and supplies will be greatly appreciated! :)
Note on parking: If you are not a guest of the DoubleTree, the hotel charges $19 for self-parking ($24+tip for valet). To avoid this you can try to park in the overflow lot, which is the parking lot of the neighboring office buildings further down Gateway Place. You might also be able to get away with parking at the restaurants or offices across Airport Parkway on Technology Drive, and walking across the street. I take no responsibility if your car is towed, however!
