[personal profile] reginagiraffe posting in [community profile] con_txt
Want to pimp out your new fandom by plopping folks on the couch to watch a few episodes? Maybe you want to pre-game for Disco Duck or the Vid Show, or keep the party going after con space closes? Have a room party!

(Our new hotel has kitchenettes in every room and allows you to hook a laptop up to the TV using an HDMI cable!)

Once again we'll have a paper message wall in the con space where you can announce your room party (don't forget to include the day, time, and your room number). But this year we're also giving you a way to announce and organize ahead of time: this post! If you're considering or planning to host a room party, here's the place to announce and discuss it.

We want you to have a fantastic time at room parties! Please keep in mind, though, that room parties are not officially part of CON.TXT, and the concom doesn't assume any responsibility for them (and all hotel rules and policies still apply). And please remember to be courteous to your fellow con-goers and considerate of other hotel guests.

Have an (unofficial) good time!

If there are people up for ride sharing or a transit option - yes! Haven't seen it yet & want to :)

I'm interested, and I'll be there by early afternoon. Might have dinner plans that could conflict, though. Not sure yet.

I think I'm going to skip it - my dinner plans firmed up and I don't think I can make any of the 7 PM ones, and I don't really want to be out late enough for the others. (Or see it in 3D.) Thanks, though! I hope you all enjoy it!

Alas, I won't arrive until noon Friday, so I'll have to pass.
