    Hiya! This thread is information about the dinner part of the Awards Banquet. At the Banquet will be much food, door prizes and entertainment (The first two are being organized by the Pgh FanForce. The third, which includes the awards show itself, are being run by the lovely Strawbary)

    PLEASE pay for your ticket in advance. Very soon a link to take you to a paypal account will appear in this space. We need to know how many people are coming so that the hotel will know how much food to make. Advance purchases of tickets are $25 per person. At the door (and there are a limited number of these) will be $30.

    Here's what you get for your money:

    Location: Radisson Hotel in Monroeville (attached to the ExpoMart, the location of Pgh ComiCon)

    Time: Saturday, April 22. Doors open at 6PM, dinner is served from 6:30 - 8PM

    Doorprizes: Everyone gets a ticket as part of the dinner package. Lots of neat SW stuff to be given away.

    Buffet:
    Tossed Garden Salad
    Vegetable Medley Aioli
    Southern Fried Chicken
    Roast Top Round of Beef Jardiniere
    Pasta in Marinara sauce
    Chef's choice of starch
    Chef's choice of vegetables
    Rolls and Butter
    Assorted Cakes and Pies
    Coffee, Decaf coffee, and iced tea



    Entertainment: Fun filled and amusing awards show.

    I have some people asking and told them I would check and get back to them.

    Some members are asking abou the dinner and are reading the following statement:

    Food is on a first come first serve basis

    Will the food be replenished or only available starting at 6. Some people are worried that some food will not be available and only go to a small number of people in line.

    The food will be replenished, fear not. I warned the hotel catering folks that we were geeks at a convention and they are preparing. However, the buffet is being cleared away at 8PM, so its suggested that if you want to get a good selection and an opportunity at seconds (or thirds or whatever) then arriving earlier is better.
