The Balticon 50 committee is bringing back as many former Balticon pro GoHs as possible. One way they’re paying for the party is by attracting donations from fans who want to attend the Ice and Fire Dinner, also known as An Evening With George R.R. Martin.
There will be seating for 36 Dinner Companions (minimum donation $1,000) on the main dining floor and 8 Ultimate Dinner Companions (minimum donation $1,500) at the head table. Each table on the main dining floor will have one seat reserved for George R. R. Martin. He will be moving to a different table for each course, and taking the main course at the head table.
The menu for the evening encompasses offerings from the 7 Kingdoms of Westeros and includes selections for those desiring vegetarian and/or gluten-free options.
Ice and Fire Dinner Companion Membership includes full 4-day Balticon membership, all of the Cool Stuff Ice and Fire Swag Bag Members get, plus:
- A matted color print of the Balticon 50 logo
- A goblet etched or engraved with the Balticon 50 logo
- A seat at The Feast of Ice and Fire.
- A handmade textile dragon, available only to Dinner Companions!
The event has proven to be popular. Already reserved are places for 20 of the 36 Companions, and 2 of the 9 Ultimate Dinner Companions.
