The Whiskey Priest (changed from Atlantic Beer Garden)
150 Northern Avenue
Boston, MA 02210 Do I have to be 21 to enter?
No, the venue is for all ages before 8 p.m. Do I have to have tickets to PAX East in order to attend?
No, we are having the meet-up at a venue near PAX East, but separate from the convention. The location is conveniently a 10 minute walk from PAX East.Is there a cover charge?
Nope. But since I'm now paying $300 for this out of pocket, it would be a huge help if each person gave me at least $5 to cover the cost of their own food. Payment is optional, but food on the platters will be free for you and paid by me.What is there to eat?
I'm picking the platters tonight. TBD.What is there to drink (alcoholic)?

COUNT: 81 peopleOnce I get there, how will I know how to meet with the rest of the group?
Our group will be reserved under "Extra Credits", if not ask for "Jaclyn" (that's me!) I'll be wearing a grey Extra Credits shirt (the one that people got for donating to help Allison), so you should at least be able to spot me. And you should recognize James : )Other info
- I made nametags! You guys can wear them or not, they're totally optional. But they are a good way for people to remember your names, at least at first.
- I'm bringing a camera! I encourage you to bring yours too. I also encourage you to share pictures you take from this meet-up with us here in this thread, I know I'll be posting my pictures here as well.
If you have any other questions please feel free to comment, PM me, or email me and I’ll answer or clarify ASAP.
I’m very excited about this! I hope you all are too.
