Dallas Serenity Meet - September 30th - October 2nd

NOTE FROM SEPTEMBER 3rd

We now have an official T-Shirt designed for the Serenity Shindig! You can get yours at Cafepress, via this link. A couple of dollars from each shirt go to cover the Saturday night potluck costs. Don't be left out!

==========================
==========================

OK, Serenity is coming out on September 30th. And I think I may have mentioned casually that I have a passing interest in the movie, and the TV show it's based on.



So, it seems only proper to have a Dallas meet celebrating Serenity's release. I know for a fact that we've got quite a few folks here that are interested in Firefly, and the movie's forthcoming release. Even the folks that have already seen the movie are interested in seeing it again.

And really, this is DALLAS.. we use any excuse to throw a meet. We're good like that.

Therefore, I'm officially announcing a Serenity Meet for the weekend of September 30th. We can go see the movie at a local theater (hopefully in DLP... or better, IMAX!), plan some various enjoyable activites. I'm thinking a combination potluck / board game day is WAY overdue, and will give a chance for 'smeek to let folks try his balls again. If anyone wants to get here that Thursday, I'm sure Bryan would be glad to introduce any/everyone to Buffalo. And you KNOW I'm good for a Brisket Taco run

Come one, come all. Out of towners, we can find hotel arrangements for you and I personally volunteer to run taxi service whenever I can. Intowners, make sure you clear your calendars now. This is, honestly, one of the biggest days of the year for me. Bigger than the release of Episode III, almost as big as the 'Con, and certainly bigger than Joe Piscopo's birthday.

Holler if you're in. Throw out ideas. Just don't miss it.

NOTE!: Our unofficial group hotel for this event is the Richardson Hotel. You can find cheap deals on room rates via Hotels.com (averaging $80 a night for a room), or even cheaper deals by booking through Travelocity and getting an airfare/hotel package. Those of you needing a cheaper room, please let me know and I can make some recommendations for you.

ALSO NOTE! You can find room rates at the Richardson for $54 a night as part of the "Family" package, if you can find someone to take the second room. More details are here.

Skittles, maybe you can have a Serenity marathon; work a deal with a local theater chain, too... See how many people you can get to watch the movie repeatedly for every consecutive showing. It'd probably garner some local press, and maybe you could work a way it could raise some money for a local charity.

Hrmmm, interesting idea. I'll have to look into that.

I think he and his wifey prefer playing something other than taxi.

Thats it as much as I would love to just commit now.

I have St Louis and Kc this month and a week in the rockies in early Sept. I'll have to play it by ear and keep an eye on the bank balance.

A little thing called money (read: airfare). Granted, she owes me a big time favor but I kinda wanna watch Serenity with her. What makes it worse is that my best friend from college lives in Flower Mound.

Money is irrelevant next to the power of Serenity, though.

(Seriously, would suck if you guys couldn't come. )

Anytime before 10:30. That'll give you time to get over to Plano for Buffalo Burgers.

IF one were to start pricing this out, are there any hotel recommendations or areas to concentrate a search?

Richardson and North Dallas are both very good areas to look at. The closest hotel to me that I can recommend is the Richardson Hotel... about a mile and a half away, it's in a good area, it's a nice hotel that was recently renovated, and has decent rates (about $80 a night if you book through hotels.com).

There are other places around that are cheaper, so if the price point isn't in your range, just holler.

Edited to add: Here's a link with more information (and pics) of the Richardson Hotel.
