Well, this is not a bash post. I am legitimately curious as to why people think the Ice Cream Social may have gone bad. I personally did not attend Friday. So I could not be witness to its goodness or badness. I've heard rumors that it was bad, and was wondering what kind of funky chit went down in the city!
Never been a fan of the ice cream social. It's costly to the con, costly to the attendees, and no one gets the flavor/amount of ice cream they want.
FWA had a really, REALLY good idea for a similar gathering. They had two chocolate fountains set up and a variety of fruits and crackers to dip into the chocolate. It was deliciously messy and FUN. ^_^
When I worked at Linens N' Things a long arse time ago, chocolate fountains ran around $50 a piece. Might be a good alternative investment.
It doesn't matter how cheap we can get these things. This is a catered event because we are REQUIRED to do catered events. So even if a chocolate fountain is cheap outside the con, the hotel will most likely rape us on price.
