  • Disco Ball

    Will be there again this year! Hopefully someone doesn’t break a light this time!

  • Disco Ball

    Actually never mind, I wont be there this year, the meetup takes place at the same time as the keynote and opening of PAX! :(

  • dsgrce

    Is there some kind of Sign-up for this, or do you just show up and hope to get in?

  • Destrin

    I’d love to come but having this over the opening of PAX East (10AM) does seem a little silly :(

  • AriesDog

    Torn between going to this or the opening ceremonies.

  • Halfazedninja

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that remembers the lamp incident. I’m guessing that’s why it’s not being held a MIT again, we broke Microsoft lol

  • chiruno99

    When I first read this I thought it said “pizzas to giveaway.” and then full scale jealousy would have kicked in. That would have been a hell of a prize to get for sure.

    As usual though, I’m in UK, we get nothing like this.

  • Major Nelson

    I just spoke to the folks at PA, and they did indeed confirm a 10:30a keynote. Sooo…we’re going to bump this back to a 9am start to give folks time to say hello the jet over to the Keynote. Cool?

  • Disco Ball

    Well thats a little better, though I still won’t be able to make it that close Friday morning, Setting up my PC for the BYOC is probably starting at 8am or 9am. Then I need to be back since I was chosen as an Omeganaut this year. Bummer, hopefully next year its Thursday night or Friday night or something. Though everyone going enjoy the tweetup!

  • Quixter

    Will be my first PAX and wouldn’t want to miss this. I’ll be there bright and early.

  • Stephan1237

    When are you going to a Europe Country?

  • Jay ITFC

    Sorry but I’m washing my hair.

  • Boe2

    @Stephan1237: We got nothing like PAX in Europe (both the gamer-centric approach and the size) so we don’t get any interesting panels.

    But who knows…Penny-Arcade IS quite popular here as well, maybe (just wishful thinking here) we’ll ever see a PAX-Europe event :)

  • IronFist73

    Sweet! I didn’t even know Lucky’s was open that early in the morning! :)

    I didn’t go to PAX East last year, and I’m still bitter about missing out on the exclusive Avatar item. Anything like that this year, Maj?

  • aka Scratch

    I will be there. Sounds cool.

  • chiruno99

    When any of you get your free pizzas, feel free to send them to me!

  • SG dannysal

    Can’t wait for Pax East. See y’all at Lucky’s (great bar, by the way).

    Holy crap, yeah that light-breaking incident was crazy. I though someone had busted one of those giant glass windows at the time it was so loud!!

    Even if we start at 9:00am for a Tweetup, I’m still worried about making it to the keynote at 10:30am…last year, we were about 20 people back when they locked the keynote because the theater was FULL! SO disappointing…anyone know if there will be more space for the keynote this year? I’ve read Jane’s book & would like to hear her speak…
