So there's this little get together up in the northeast that comes around in 2 months. Perhaps you've heard of it? I haven't seen a thread pop up for it yet so I figured I would make one.

Anyway, PAX East. What's so special about that? Its got a LAN room

An exhibition floor

Concert hall

And a myriad of other excellent and awesome things to do.

Last year was my first PAX and it did not disappoint. I met a bunch of great people had a ton of great times and perfected the art of the first time PAX experience (paraphrasing DrZ)

This year, I would like to get to the things I missed out on. In particular: hanging out with you nerds.

So, my question is, who will be going to PAX East? Is it you? Let me know and I will make some sort of list

    This would cost me £500 in flights alone, plus hotels and what not.

    Maybe next year!

    If I get this promotion I might go. The event itself is only vaguely interesting, but it would be cool to hang out with SE people and I always enjoy a road trip. (not sarcasm)

    I really have no excuse to not go, considering it's in Boston right? Like a half hour bus ride from my college. I'll probably find one though.

    (assuming I can suck enough dick to get into a car from NYC)

    Travel options:

    Amtrak round trip Thursday-Sunday: $98 (from Penn Station to Boston Back Bay)
    Greyhound round trip Thursday-Monday: $36 (from Port Authority Terminal to Boston)
    Peter Pan Bus (Greyhound company) round trip Thursday-Monday: $28 (from Port Authority Terminal to Boston)
    Bolt Bus (Greyhound company) round trip Thursday-Monday: $11-$30 (from Manhattan to Boston)

    Those are all things I just looked up now. Bolt has a $1 one way to Boston if you book now for the 7:00 AM bus on Thursday.

    I might just save up and go to PAX Prime since I don't think I'll be able to get to this.

    It's been too long since I've been on a good vacation anyway.
