AWA 12 AMV Dinner

Post by SQ » Mon Jul 24, 2006 8:04 pm

Last Year's thread for more information and such.

Well. Yeah.
Um.

Basically, as per every other year, we'll be eating at Carrabba's. It's a little walk across the bridge of death(that got a fence, so now it's just the bridge of doom) and it serves italian food.

I'm in Florida now, But I will be at AWA by Thursday(september 21), plans permitting.
I Cannot walk anyone to the dinner, however, because I don't know where Carrabba's is. Again. So if somebody can volunteer like they did last year, that'd be great.

Uh... This is kind of in a hurry, so as per tradition, you're allowed yourself and one non-AMVer friend/guest if you need it. But try not to bring any non-AMV people. I may bring my boyfriend if he can make it. But that's just me.

So anyway, state if you're in or not, and if you're bringing a guest. This way I can see how many people will be coming, and can make a reservation.


Additionally, if anyone can expound on this topic(like menus and location and such) please do, because my life is pretty hectic right now. I just want ot make sure we don't miss out on this wonderful tradition that is usually my highlight of going to AWA!

Added 9/14/06 - Meet at the ice sculpture inside the Rennassiance Waverly Hotel at 8pm EST. We will be leaving to walk to Carabba's at 8:30pm EST. If you're late you have to walk alone. Map on page 11.

Added 9/12/06 - The map is on page 11! It's going to be a long walk this year. =(

Added 8/24/06 - Pilk says: People we will need to leave no later than 8:45 from the hotel. There is a new bridge which requires us to cross the road at Cumberland Pkwy. But trust me this is a much safer route. Meet at the hotel ice scuplture, behind the lobby elevators no later than 8:30.

Added 8/01/06 - I kind of forgot to mention it, but we will be meeting at 8pm in the Rennaisance(sp) Waverly Hotel. Below the stairs, next to the big ice sculpture(which is behind the elevator tunnel thing). This will give us all a chance to group together, before we leave at roughly 8:50pm to go to Carrabba's. While you wait, you can meet other editors before the dinner, as well as go upstairs and get your con badge, which is usually open by this time (If it's not somebody let me know, please.)

So sometimes there's a split meeting of AMVers who are waiting in line getting their badges, as well as those downstairs. In 2001 I actually met ErMaC waiting in line for my badge, and then he mysteriously disappeared for the rest of the con. >_>



Below is the list of people expecting to make it to the dinner:

I'll be there. I'll also have a rental car and can give a lift to those who fear the bridge of death.

Well, that was posted with a dash of sarcasm. If I remember right, some of the guys arrived too late for the dinner. Which might be my case this year. I still haven't made flight & room reservations.

I still don't have a room. And while that normally wouldn't be a problem since I live right there, I'm not staying with my parents this time.

So I'll have a longer drive there and back. So if anyone has a room they wouldn't mind sharing with me... >_>

I can also pay a slice of the rent, too.

Still have to book my flight to AWA but I am registered and have a hotel room so with all likelyhood I'll be able to make it to the dinner. So go ahead and put me down.

woot, can't wait to see you again. XD

Also, the weirdest thing just happened to me. I'm in the library at out school, and some girl came up to me and she's like "You go to anime conventions, right?"
And I was "Um.. Yeah."
And she says "I know you."
"0_o"
"You know dannywilson, right? I know you through him."

And I was all. "What, are you like his girlfriend or something?"
And she said no, jsut friends. Anyway, we got into a conversation abotu AMVs, Dannywilson, her, and how freaky the conventions in Alaska are.

It was... Freaky. 0_o

Turns out she saw some of the pictures of Dannywilson at AWA that had me in them and she was all "I know that girl!" and approached me at school about it. 0_o;;

She's never been to AWA, she just recognized me as being her friend's roommate. >_>
