The San Diego ComicCon International is a fan Mecca, drawing more than one hundred-thousand people to the sunny SoCal city every July for an orgy of geekery. Amongst them are bound to be innumerable slashers - no, not the horror-movie variety, but rather those interested in homoerotic fanfiction and associated fanworks. We thought, "hey, wouldn't it be nice to get together with some of them?" and lo, the Slashers Dinner was born.
This year we're back at the Panda Inn, which has been our home for the past three years. We will have a section of the restaurant to ourselves with a number of large round tables so folks can meet and mingle. As it does every year, the event will feature a tasty dinner reception, personalized badges, and a Swap Table.
Who: This event is hosted for slashers, by slashers! All slashers and slash-friendly folks are welcome - any fandom, pairing, etc. Concerned you won't know anyone there? Don't worry - you're not alone! We're a friendly group and the whole point is to meet new people and have fun. Many friendships have been forged in the past from this event, and we have no doubt the trend will continue. Oh, and to state the ovbious, we are not associated with the convention whatsoever.
Location: The dinner will be hosted at the Gaslamp's Panda Inn, just a short walk from the convention center in the Westfield Horton Plaza Shopping Center.
Menu: Family-style Mandarin cuisine -
While the menu is subject to some change, we will do our best to make sure there will be vegetarian and other dietary options available. If you have any food concerns, please let us know! We do our best to make the dinner open to everyone.
Registration: Registration for the dinner is $25. This covers a full family-style meal at Panda Inn, including tons of food and a customized badge. Sponsor memberships are available for $30, and Sponsors will recieve special Sponsor swag and get the first pick of the Swap Table.
Swap Table: Keeping up the successful tradition, the Swap Table is back for another year! Bring all your neat fan-finds that you just don't have room for, or perhaps schwag for fandoms you're just not into these days, and let other fans take them home to love. Don't forget to have a look to see what others have brought that just might tickle your fancy in return. Zines, action figures, books, art, con-schwag, buttons, DVDs -the Swap Table welcomes it all!
Charity: We're operating on a hair-thin margin of cost, but any penny above our expenses will be donated to the AIDS Research Alliance.
Come and join us for an evening of fun and friendly company!
