FoCC Sunday Dinner Signups - July 24, 2022
« on: May 24, 2022, 01:41:51 PM »
UPDATE 7/6/22 - I'll be making the final order on Friday afternoon. If you would like to attend this event, please sign up by Friday!


This year we will once again be hosting the FoCC Sunday Dinner & SWAG Trade at SDCC, on Sunday, July 24 at 6 pm. Unfortunately, our previous location for this event, the Harbor House, was a victim of the pandemic and is now closed. As such, we were forced to find a new location for this year's dinner.

We will be having our Sunday dinner at Basic Pizza, at 410 10th Avenue in the Gaslamp. This is located a block north of PetCo Park. Basic Pizza can be reached by walking down J St., or (from the Hilton Bayfront/Hall H area) walking over the pedestrian bridge over Harbor and heading north. You can see the location at the red pin on the map below.



Unfortunately, this new location is requiring that we order (and pay for) all food in advance. We will not be allowed to show up with a big group and order the day of the event. I will be coordinating the pre-order (and pre-payment), based on the food preferences of people attending the event (everyone will have the chance to express their food preferences when they RSVP).

Please note that while there will be vegetarian options, there will be no vegan options.

Given the pre-ordering format, there will be a per-person charge of $25, which includes a buffet of salad and pizza, as well as tax and gratuity. Drinks will be purchased separately by individual people from a cash bar on the day of the event. There will be alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available at the cash bar.

All monies collected will be held in a separate Paypal account used only for this event. In the case of event cancellation, all payments will be refunded.

To attend the dinner, you must fill out the following form. After filling out the form, you must Paypal $25 per person in your group to [email protected] to reserve your spot.

I am happy to answer any questions people have about the changes this year, and I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Thank you! I've signed up for my partner and I and we look forward to attending!

The name seemed familiar and I looked it up: I had a post-panel party at Basic Pizza in 2016 and I remember it being a good time. Wasn't buffet style at the time which should be even better this year ;D

Do you want the PayPal sent as friends and family or goods and services?

Question about the per-person amount. Does this include children? My daughter is 5 and eats like a bird. I usually just shared a little of my pasta with her when we ate at the other restaurant. She's usually one of the only children though so not sure if others have the same question this year.

Aw man, I want pizza! But my flight leaves at 8pm, which means I have to leave downtown for the airport by 6:30pm or so.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  Don't worry about your daughter. Just pay for the adults. ;)

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  You can use whichever method you prefer, but if you use goods and services, make sure to include the fee (so that FoCC receives $25).

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  The restaurant is not buffet-style, but because of the group order, our event will be buffet-style. Essentially, they will bring out massive bowls of salad and large pizzas and everyone will serve themselves. I will make sure to order plenty of food!

Thanks for organizing this. I sent funds for myself (MickeyJack) +2 (Chris & Joel).  It's always a perfect way to end the Con and is never taken for granted.

I don't have one right now. This place is a little more flexible with numbers. If it looks like I may have to close it down, I will post a warning here in advance.
