I have some chinese lanterns somewhere, I'll see what else I can find.
And "what the hell" on the liquor? Why would the con sign an agreement that allowed that?

Subject: [firefly-39] Inara's Shuttle is gearing up!
Date: Fri, 30 Jan[masked]:28:06 -0500
Hey kids -
I've got a lot more overall party details at the last Concom meeting, so let's use that, have an AWESOME shindig, and win some awards!
First - Them that runs the hotel knows we are throwing parties and that parties have liquor, however there is some strange rule up there that any alcohol seen coming *into* the hotel will be confiscated until Sunday afternoon. Once it's in, it's in, but make sure that libations are in bags, boxes, totes, your belly, or wherever else they can slide by unseen on the main floor. Beam it in Scotty! Oh, yeah, wrong 'verse!
The parties will be on the 15th & 16th floors of the hotel. I don't have our suite number or floor plan yet, but I'm supposed to be getting it. Hopefully in time for the planning meeting/Chinese New Year shindig on Sunday!
Decorating - Inara's shuttle should be pretty easy to decorate for. Anybody have any of those huge floor pillows that were big in the early 80's, or a good cheap source for them? Fancy looking material that isn't pricey, etc. I probably have the 'mood lighting' more than covered, but if you have anything you want to add, or things with a Chinese theme and are willing to lend or donate it would be much appreciated!
Somebody should have some good stuff stashed from our previous parties. I know there are Chinese lanterns, some string lights and various Chinese themed items. Does anyone know who has them?
Awards - All but one of the awards are won by votes cast in the Ballot Box. We are eligible for three awards this year since the other two are for Best Thurs. and Best Fri. parties.
Best Overall Party - The group that wins the Best Overall Party award gets a free suite for next Cap, which definitely allows for a bigger decorating and liquor budget - so let's go for it!
Most Creative use of Bug Juice - Um, like 8 years of bar-tending and I got nuthin' on this! I'll check with my cohorts and see what they come up with, but we are WIDE open for suggestions!
This year Cap is bringing back their Party Staff Personal Choice Award - This one doesn't get voted on by badge holders. It's at the total discretion of this year's Cap Party Staff. It will be given to the party who they think threw the best party & was easiest to work with.
The Ballot Box will be on the 15th floor near the elevators each night during the parties & in Ops.(Operations) during the day. You need to have a badge to vote and you can only vote once per badge number, so make it count! And don't forget to get your friends to vote!
