    Should we organize groups to walk there with if we want to walk? Or is it not that rough?

    I was gonna suggest the Streetcar, but I just found out that it stops running at 7pm on Sundays. Hmph.

    So, here's the best bus route if people aren't interested in walking more after 3 days of conventioning:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Convention+Center,+Convention+Place,+Seattle,+WA&daddr=Jillian's,+Westlake+Avenue+North,+Seattle,+WA&hl=en&ll=47.62167,-122.335596&spn=0.030488,0.063601&sll=47.618603,-122.33757&sspn=0.03049,0.063601&geocode=Fa5-1gIdFl61-CFpvCYhdizTOA;FQe41gId6T-1-Cnb8YZuORWQVDHlKixy73Pu9Q&mra=ls&dirflg=r&ttype=arr&date=08/28/11&time=8:20pm&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&vpsrc=6&t=h&z=14&start=0

    For some reason, I could not figure out how to get the url tag working with this new format.

    Oh dang, I had planned to take the slut. Did not know that it stopped running so early. I'll probably end up walking then.

    If we go as a group we'll be fine.

    Just so you guys know, the neighborhood's pretty tame until the sun goes down. Getting there won't really be dangerous as it's still in the evening. Going back to the hotels in groups is definitely wise.

    Since PAX closes down at 7, how about we give ourselves 30 minutes to take various items back to our hotel rooms if we need to, and meet at the doors at 7th and Pike at 7:30? Google says it should take about 20 minutes. We should get there just before 8, just in time for the PARTY!

    we could take 7th -> Olive -> 8th -> Westlake all the way to Jillians.

    please correct me Seattleites if I'm wrong. Or, if anyone else has a better way.

    Just touching base with everyone since I was gone for a bit. I basically lived at my office for a straight week. Work got insane.

    Everything is looking great for the party. Confirmed with our coordinator that we're all set. I love that you guys are organizing groups and stuff. That makes me happy. I leave for PAX on Tuesday (also going to PAX-Dev) and I'll be checking in on Jillian's sometime during the week, just to get an idea for space, flow, etc. I'll update accordingly.

    Meeting up at 7:30 sounds like a plan, just because then we have company and (hopefully) less getting lost.

    Man it would suck if I had to look up directions!

    It's pretty easy to find from the WSCC.

    You are standing at the main entrance to PAX.

    Now, now Liger, that's being kinda mean to the non-locals.
    Our downtown is on a very strange grid, so the correct directions are:

    Stand at main PAX entrance
    Walk North on 8th til you get to Westlake.
    Walk North on Westlake.

    Hey all, some last minute news:

    The venue under-estimated how epic we're going to be and we've been relocated to the second floor. I went and toured Jillian's this morning, and it's awesome. The second floor is really cool.

    The Megas (http://www.themegas.com/about.html) have also hopped on board, and will be playing sometime during the night. Not quite sure how the music situation is going to play out, but expect to hear it pretty much the entire night.

    We have some AMAZING swag to give out, both bought and donated, that I think you guys are going to really like.

    IF YOU HAVE EXPRESSED INTEREST IN VOLUNTEERING, I PROBABLY NEED YOU! Between checking people in at the door and helping the band, I actually do have need for a handful of volunteers this year. Please text me at seven seven five, three four two, three five six four or just show up around 7:00 at Jillian's to help out.

    Thanks! See you all in a few hours!

    I'm rolling out to Jillian's right now with the swag. If you happen to get there before me, just kick around. If anyone asks, you're with Jace Proctor (me) and the Post-PAX Party. I believe the manager's name is Tom. If you run into The Protomen or any of the other bands, tell them I'll be there soon.

    I have to say, I was pretty surprised (in the good way) by how good this party is. I only knew Arco previously as a hard-working Enforcer colleague who's possibly the biggest PAX fanboy, if you will, in the Enforcers. ;-) Now, I know him as someone who puts on a good party! Thanks, mate, I don't regret turning up even though I could only rock up at 10:15pm.

    First off, what a GREAT way to end PAX. Big thanks to you guys for putting this together. The venue was perfect and our group had a blast.

    Also, my SINCERE apologies for subjecting y'all to my drunk ass playing Rock Band. I've never played, and I am tone deaf, but the wine told me to do it. :)
