Ok people the Official 2016 Meet and Greet Info is here So just soak it in.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the Meet and Greet.  Plus don't Forget about the free Light Saber give away. 

Here are the Details.

What:  Meet and Greet. We want to see all your pretty faces and talk about con and give away a light saber for free. Plus eat some damn good fried chicken and maybe a beer or too.

We would like to know how many people are planning on come. Also if are you going to bring a friend.  Please let us know. This will help us get a little bit better pricing on the Food.

I'm RSVP'ing 2-4 people.
Not sure if the other roommates are coming.

We haven't been able to make it the last couple years, because of the distance away from the host hotels.

I added the menu to Jojo's original post.  I will put in orders for people ahead of time. 
My recommendation is to go family style.  The slaw and beans are great, and generally speaking I estimate that people will eat 2.5 pieces apiece. 
If you want me to put in an order for you guys ahead of time (and the kitchen will appreciate this), give me:
1.  A name for the order
2.  What you want
You can still pay at the end. 

They do have some basic wines and a selection of beer. 

Please be there at start time so we have time for the trivia/ games!
