What comprises the after party? More PS? Comparing silent auction winnings? Actually seeing what fellow WWers look like?

I'll definitely be at D & D, had a great time last year.



A little of everything. People (loweeel and sparky mostly) have been generous with their bottles, and by now most of us are friends so a chance to hang out and chat. Definitely come meet people though!

They go up later. And you don't have to go in early on the PSgrouPieS tickets.


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

Usually we supply some nice PS, because they need to decant, and can safely do so while we are at D&D.

I liked getting to go in early. This time around I don't think the tour is worth the time. I would rather get to more tables before the place fills up.

And get a good look at the auction stuff... Watch out sparky....

Not to worry. I won't hand out the tickets until I've been inside first!

Will do.

Check out the start of this thread and the D&D Weekend thread on hotel info. I will try to update them with new info when needed.

So, are you volunteering to coordinate a group rate?

Not yet. Sent an email off to her about it.


Anyone else need early entry tickets?


Edit: Or just regular entry tickets?

Unfortunately I have regular entry tickets but not gonna complain since they were free. I did hear they might be stingier with the early entry tickets this year.

I suppose you could, except with the PS we drink at the after-party, it may be better not to have to walk that far!

It probably will be okay. But we usually go to Midnight.
