“Break the Ice” Dinner the Night Before Pemmi-Con

There will be a Pemmi-Con “Break the Ice” dinner, Wednesday, July 19th, 2023, 7 PM – 9 PM CDT. This is the night before the convention.

No, there isn’t ice in Winnipeg in July, except in drinks. This is a social ice-breaker. Join your fellow fans (and maybe even some of our guests!) for a hearty meal and great company at The Old Spaghetti Factory, located in a historic building in the scenic Forks District.

The dinner is a set price of CAD $26.25 per person (including taxes and gratuity). The main course is a choice of:

  • Spaghetti with choice of Marinara Sauce, or Rich Meat Sauce, or Spicy Meat Sauce, or Browned Butter & Mizithra Cheese Sauce
  • Spaghetti with Meatballs
  • Lasagna
  • Tortellini Pomodoro
  • Manicotti
  • Basil Cream Penne

Dinner includes fresh-baked white bread and garlic butter, a green salad with house dressing, spumoni ice cream, and tea, coffee, or soft drink. Gluten-free and dairy-free options are available, please communicate with your server when ordering.

The Old Spaghetti Factory is a five minute drive, or twenty minute walk, from the Delta Winnipeg Hotel. If you can, come early to walk around the Forks and relax by the plaza.

The event host is Laurie E. Smith.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

At Pemmi-Con you’ll meet guests so cool, other fans are willing to sponsor them to bring them to our event! The Canadian Unity Fan Fund will present a guest from elsewhere in Canada, while the Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund will bring us a fannish celebrity from the far side of the Atlantic Ocean!
