It'll be fun. We're going to have a bunch of cool art and signed merch and other cool stuff available via a silent auction.
Also, if you're coming into town a bit early our event at the Highball is going to be rocking. Last year that seemed to be where people had the most fun, and we're trying to take it to another level this year!
And rightfully so, I'm not. But just to clarify, SideQuest is a creation of Count3D that I co-organize and co-host. It is not run by RT staff at all. They just did us a huge favor by posting about it on the front page and mentioning it in the podcast.
We have reserved space at all of our events for the RT staff and they have been formally invited. However, they're going to be extremely busy with RTX that weekend and so they can't promise that they'll make it. We have been told by several staff members that if they can, they will be there.
Just to be sure everyone knows, fancy dress isn't required. We call it "cocktail casual" meaning anything from "cocktail attire" to your usual casual (jeans+nice shirt) is preferred. Of course, this is entirely optional, but we figured some people might like an excuse to look nice during RTX!
Congrats on the baby, dad. If I were old enough, I would def buy you a drink. Unfortunately, I must content myself with a lack luster life of laser tag and general tomfoolery. It sucks to be young and free.
I hope you do! We only have a handful (13) of cocktail party tickets left, but plenty of Highball and Salt Lick to go around. We also should be releasing more BarLympics tickets in the near-future, but I'm waiting on confirmation from our venue.
