    Opened the pdf and all I saw was Cheers.

    I'm so in.

    I put myself down for a maybe. Think I'll be arriving into Boston quite early on Thursday morning, and am stlll in negotiations with regards to how to approach a day of sightseeing. The mention of Cheers has put considerable weight behind this idea, however.

    I write about games on a few websites.

    I should likely be able to attend. I'm a little dubious on the whole "Plenty of Space" comment though. I work right by Fan Hall and it tends to be slammed around lunch.

    You're right that we won't get one single spot to ourselves. It'll be a question of creating ad hoc geekclusters, sprouting forth from the ground like hardy fruit.

    I think i will be attending this!

    I'm arriving from London the day before, so will probably be just about done with catching up on sleep and such prepax in time for this :)

    I'll definitely show up for the lunch. Mainly because I have prior plans that interfere with the dinner and crawl.

    Also, a reminder, this is a really good place to meet up with people who are on the Magical Mystery Tour, as they will be there at the same time. It'll be GEEKTASTIC!

    mm if this is at quincy market there are a bunch of discounts offered if you have a charlie card (might as well get one if you're taking the T in Boston, just find a card around the machine and refill it)

    some places are food in the food hall thing and some aren't:

    pg. 48-49 for faneuil hall

    You all will definitely be a boost to the local economy. ^_^

    Wish I could join you there, but will be in transit between home and where I'm staying in Boston for PAX East during that time.

    So a question, the best way I see of getting to Quincy market from around the BCEC, is as follows:

    Silver Line SL2: WTC - Southstation
    Red Line: Southstation - Downtown crossings
    Orange Line: Downtown crossings - Haymarket

    Is this the best way or am I missing something?

    Looking forward to seeing you all there on Thursday!!!

    The Orange Line's State St station is closer (and one stop sooner).

    According to the MBTA trip planner... wait, what the...
    ok, that's odd. It says take Silver line to South, Red from South to Downtown, then a bus from Downtown to just past Faneuil Hall. And if I tell it rail only, it says walk to South, take Red to Downtown, and then walk from Downtown. Is something going to be wrong with the Orange line this weekend?

    If I were you, I would just park outside of Boston at like Riverside in Newton and pay for the overnight parking and take the train into the city. Riverside is a green line and will take you right to Fanueil Hall. I have always parked at Riverside and never had a problem there with any of the cars I had :)

    I'm assuming that it would just be easier to park my car at my hotel (in Bedford) and take the T in and traverse around the city by foot/public transportation. But since I drove around the city last year and that combination of words is a joke where I come from, I'll need a little help with that. And I heard paying for parking can get a little expensive if you're doing it all three days of the actual convention.

    If you can take public transportation it's a better thing to do. Parking in Boston is expensive for the con days or any days for that matter. You are a brave soul to attempt driving in Boston. :)

    I did it last year and wanted to rip my hair out. XD Mostly I wanted to rip other peoples' hair out. >.>; I suppose I should buy a pass, then. Can I do that at any station? Better yet, is there a website so I don't have to ask so many questions? :P
