I mentioned before that I was trying to put together a small event in the evening right after Cranky Dorkfest on September 7. I’m pleased to report that it has come together quite nicely.
Ten of you will join me behind security on a progressive dinner through LAX starting in Terminal 7 and ending in the Bradley Terminal. United and American have planned some special surprises along the way. To make it even better, half of all net proceeds will be donated to the Flight Path Museum at LAX.
If you’ve read all the details below and are ready to bid, you can do it below or click here. Otherwise, read on below the form for details…
Here’s the current plan which is subject to change if required:
Terminal 7 – Arrive by 4:15pm for a visit to United’s LAX operations center followed by a drink in the United Polaris Lounge (courtesy of United)
Terminal 6 – An appetizer at a restaurant or lounge to be determined
Terminal 5 – Main course and one drink at a restaurant to be determined
Terminal 4 – Tour of American’s Admirals Club, Flagship Lounge, and Flagship Dining Room followed by dessert in the American Flagship Lounge conference room overlooking the ramp (courtesy of American)
Bradley Terminal (TBIT) – After-dinner drink at a bar to be determined
We’ll spent 1 to 1.5 hours at each stop, so it will wrap up between 10 and 11. We will all walk together to make sure we keep everything running on time. Oh, and everything mentioned above is included in your bid. What’s not included? If you want more drinks or more food, that’s on you. If you drive, parking is extra at the regular LAX rates.
Since there are so few spots, I’m running this as an auction with half of the net proceeds going to the Flight Path Museum at LAX. Bids are open now and they start at $150, though I’m hopeful it will go up quickly from there so I can write the Flight Path a nice check.
Bidding will remain open until Wednesday, August 21 at 5pm PT. The 10 highest bids will be chosen, and at that point, a link will be sent to each winner to request payment. Payment has to be received by Monday, August 26 or the spot will be given to the next person on the list.
If you’d like to follow along and see how things stand, you can do it here. Or the current top ten is embedded below. Keep refreshing the page to see the updated list.
If you bid and see that you’ve been bumped off, you can either go back to your existing bid and revise it or you can just submit a new bid with the same email address. You can bid as many times as you’d like, but each bidder can only win one spot. No guests are allowed, so if you’re a couple, bid separately.
This is going to be one fun event. I’m looking forward to finding out who will be joining me and to seeing how much we can raise for the Flight Path. Get your bids in before 5pm PT on August 21 for your chance to join the party.
