Please join us for the Second Annual
Sip 'n' Nibble Around the World.
October 19th, 2008 • Epcot World Showcase
Last year's event was so much fun, we'll do it all again during MiceChat Invasion3.
UPDATE: SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST
TO SEE ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON THIS EVENT!
Last year, a group of MiceChatters got together and took a leisurely stroll around World Showcase, sampling the food and wine offerings along the way. Each of us had a lanyard with a marker attached so we could record our progress. Many of us also sported a small glass on a lanyard to conveniently share the adult beverages that were offered in each country. (It had been previously determined that a full portion of adult beverage in each country would probably doom the effort to certain failure.) Amazingly, most of the group recorded a "sip" and a "nibble" at all 26 official stops!
This event will again be an informal gathering, allowing participants to come and go as they please. We'll all meet up at a location and time to be determined where we will distribute the lanyards and cups. Rixter and MickeyMaxx will again provide these items at no charge to our MiceChat friends. The purchase of food and wine samples will be the responsibility of each individual with cooperation among all participants encouraged. The prize will be the same as last year: everyone who participates will be rewarded with the the opportunity to spend some quality time with other members of the best online Disney community on Earth!
Here is what the lanyards looked like last year:

We'll try to meet inside in the round room that overlooks the fountain - but if the inside is locked we'll be on the covered patio outside. If for some reason you cannot meet us at 10:30 a.m., call the Event Hotline to determine the group's whereabouts. You are welcome to join us at any time during the day.
