Kim and I wanted to get up some additional details here in a public setting to let everyone planning to attend know how we hope to run this very special event. Because of it’s informal nature, we have no sort of press line or red carpet planned, though press will be in attendance.
The response has been so overwhelmingly positive and we are incredibly excited but do have to make it clear that seating in the actual theater itself is limited (it’s a 99 seat comedy theater), so hopefully no one minds that we hope to seat attendees in the following manner:
–2010 Streamy Winners and their guests
–Press and 2010 Streamy nominees
–Additional guests on a first come/first served basis
When you arrive, please check in at the ACME box office where we will have a sign in sheet for additional guests as well as name tags which we encourage you to wear!
In addition to the theater itself, the lobby is equipped with monitors, so an extra 40 people will be able to watch from there (though it will literally be standing room only). The ceremony itself should last no more than an hour and the most important part of the evening is the opportunity to mingle and enjoy time with each other before and after the event. Amalfi Restaurant next door (the two are connected) should be able to accommodate everyone for this purpose.
And again, for those who can’t be there in person, we will be streaming the event live at http://www.acmecomedy.com/livebroadcast.shtml as well as posting the livestream (as well as some other goodies) at Blip.tv, who has kindly offered to co-sponsor the event. If you are Tweeting during or about the event, please use the hashtag #celebratetheweb.
If you have questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and we will address them! We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night and we thank you in advance for your understanding.
Jenni and Kim
