Should we arrange some kind of meet up?

#1 Edited by big_jon (5725 posts) -

I was thinking it would be cool if those of us that are going to PAX prime this year posted their names along side their user names, it would also be cool to arrange a meet up perhaps at a bar or something?

If we could get the GB crew out for an after party at a bar one night that would be awesome too!

So I know I am going, along with two other friends, are any of ya'll?

I know it is early, but I think the earlier the pans the best, right?

how about a pre pax late night meet up im thinking the hurricane cafe (its like half a mile away from the convention center) its open 24 hours has a bar and has good cheap food plus breakfast 24 hours and unlimited hash browns

So the official meetup is here, we could all sign up to go and meet each other there, or we could try and do our own thing.

So when are people getting in? I'm set to be in by 10.00 but realistically I'll say 12.00 and set up in hotel by 13.00.

This'll be my first PAX. My badge arrived last week, but I expected a bit more in terms of a schedule of panels and/or literature on the weekend happenings.

Do they usually send out more info, or will it all be available when you check in? I know the GB panel is happening some time that Friday evening, but beyond that I'm kinda clueless.

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere; the PAX forums and FAQ don't seem to be of much help, either.

You won't be receiving anything else in the mail. Everything is online. I guess you missed it on the PAX site.

Maps won't be released for probably a couple weeks.

Hey, thanks for the info.

Yep, I caught the schedule on the PAX site over the weekend, so I'm all up to speed now.

I'm not going to the show, but I will be in Seattle. We should start getting something set up!

Don't the bomb guys go to a bar the night after the panel anyway?

I suckered my wife into going to pax this year so we are having a vacation in Seattle. She and I will be around town (unless she gets bored and jets off to do something else).
