    Last year I went with about 7 other guys and we were pretty much a mobile party haha. I just got back on the forum so I'm not sure what's out there but will you post information on the pub crawls here?

    Not your average snowman.

    The only pub crawl I know of is the triwizard drinking tournament. Anyone know of any other ones?

    There was a "fear and loathing" crawl too, but the guy who ran that last year is doing the TWDT this year.

    Wasn't there a Riot pub crawl at East? Since there is a League of Legends tourney at Prime, might there be a Riot pub crawl here?

    I don't recall one being posted on the forums, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen ;) You could contact Riot and find out maybe.

    Thanks for bringing that one up. I will try and scour around to confirm if that is true for Prime this year.

    Riot Rara pokes around the forums here, maybe she would know. Could shoot her a PM (I don't remember her forum name though...)

    You will probably find one or two of the larger parties that have open bars. They usually get announced in the next couple weeks here.

    You guys have to tell me how awesome Avicii is at PAX. He'll be rocking my hometown in September and I need to know if he's worth seeing!

    they probably will, considering sega owns gameworks. i'm pretty sure they've been there every year i've been at pax. never been to their party though.

    I'll be willing to tolerate Minecraft if it means getting to see an Avicii gig.

  • Katie85Katie85 Registered User regular
    Okay, correction- so I heard the "Riot Pub Crawl" at East was actually unplanned hangouts by Riot people that would fill a bar, spill into the next bar, and so on, thus forming an impromptu pub crawl. Maybe lightning can strike twice. :)

  • TraitoriousTraitorious Registered User regular
    Oh god Avicii. I need in to this Notch party like NOW.

  • FenrisfangFenrisfang Registered User regular
    The debate now is do I go to the Notch party or JoCo? *sigh*

  • shadowscoutshadowscout Registered User regular

    apparently Arenanet will be having a party on the saturday night - no actual details yet tho

    I hope they have some way to control the capacity of that Minecraft party. Every random person in the city will try to attend because of "Levels".

    Last years GW party sucked. Not enough food (they ran out about halfway through the line) and bad entertainment. The year before rocked. Hopefully this year they get it right again.

    I know this conflicts with other pre-PAX events, but you're invited all the same! So if you're looking for something to do before filling the queue room Friday morning, or have friends in town who are planning to cosplay? (Or are you cosplaying?)

    Come down to Contour on Thursday August 30th: 10pm until close.

    Cosplay encouraged! Show your favorite outfits off on the dance floor with Contour's resident DJs pumping out great bass-heavy dance tracks on the best sound system in the downtown core.

    Drink specials all night long, and in celebration of the upcoming AWESOME weekend, no cover charge!

    $4 wells
    $1 specialty shots
    $3.50 drafts

    You can check out a little more information at the Facebook event page.
