Rum Party!!!

Okay, mates, this is unfortunately going to be watered down. Many of you may know what the Rum Party is, many of you don't, we mostly hold 'em in SoCal cons.

Anyways, here's the rundown.

We serve free iced tea (a.k.a. rum)
We dress up as pirates
We have some gambling games with gold coins
We have a jolly ol' time

Usually I run this with a crew of over 20. This time I can count the crew on one hand, so this will be small. Rum Party's are typically big and have lots of events, but this will be a fun little throwback to the very first Rum Party.

You can find out more about our going-ons on our forums, link in my sig.

What I want from you guys is an idea on the best time to hold this thing!

Perhaps a Pre-Rum party before the con to get things going.

Sounds fun, the only thing is that the Washington Trade Center prohibits outside food and drink...

They do? I brought a lunch to last year's and they didn't get on me about it. True I didn't eat anywhere near the main con places but still.

Perhaps there's a place inside where the crew and I can purchase the iced tea so they don't get on us about it. We'll see what we can do!

There's two restaurants on the bottom floor that sell drinks, so you can inquire there if they have Iced Tea. Not sure the prices though.

I'd be cheaper and possibly cooler to throw it outback in the pack behind reg. No limits on outside food or drink and plenty of room. Just an idea. =3

Do you mean that small courtyard area located outside? Cuz that's where I'd like to host it if they allow outside drinks there.

The park is actually bigger than it looks but yeah. From what I have come to understand is that outside food is permitted in public areas, the park and half the convention center are open to the public. So I don;t think you have any trouble running it in the park.

So what would happen if a Ninja were to make an appearance at a Rum Party?

So that's what a rum party is? Oh that sounds fun! Someone should tell the east coast because the locals here...They're idiots and have apparently been doing it wrong.
I'm not sure if I'll be bringing my pirate gear or not, and if I do, if I'll be willing to lace up my corset, but I like pirate games so I might try to come.

People have been doing wannabe Rum Party's on the East Coast? Fools!

LOL, me and my crew founded the Rum Party, so if we aren't hosting it, you can bet it's bootleg.

@Evil One: Actually, at the very first Rum Party (Anime Expo 2005) we were attacked by a ninja clan that - quite literally - came out of the trees, and claimed that they were taking control of the Rum Party.

They were greeted with the *clicks* of about 30 flintlock pistols before I stepped up and cut a deal with the ninja emissary, offering to join into one awesome brotherhood. They accepted, and we had drinks all around!

And thus ended the Ninja Pirate War.

You mean the pirate ninja war ended in 2005? Wow...The more you know, huh?
And yes, there have been wannabe parties over here...Only they instead of tea to symbolise rum, they use beer. After the first round or two, they stop playing games and everyone drops their pirate accents.
I don't drink, nor do I approve of it, so I always thought Rum Parties were disgusting excuses for people to get drunk at cons. Now that I know that what's been going really is just an excuse to get drunk and is in no way a real Rum Party...

By "We dress up as pirates" do you mean the people throwing the party, or everyone at the party. It sounds like a good time, but I don't have a pirate costume.
