Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

  • Surviving PAX East on a GF diet?

    The Cookie Brigade generally has a pretty healthy supply of GF cookies, we have a couple brigadiers who can't have gluten. We had 800 GF cookies last year, 8 different kinds.

    I also know the Westin has a few items on their menu that are GF, though its expensive, and you can also check with @aerynkelly‌ she might have some great recommendations for East as well as she's GF and might have some great restaurant/food recommendations.

    Definitely bring your own/buy stuff at the grocery store. In the convention center itself you won't find anything gluten free (except some of the gf cookies Ransim mentioned.) If you are just gluten intolerant you can get away with getting a burger, without the bun, but if you're Celiac it's not really worth the risk. I was never even able to find a salad in the convention center that was safe to eat.

    As far as restaurants nearby - none have a gluten free menu (or didn't the last time I was there) but can usually accommodate. The hardest thing about restaurants around the convention center is they fill up quickly during PAX, so either make reservations, or go further into the city. If you're going to be driving in Boston (which personally I don't recommend) or feel like traveling away from the convention center, there are restaurants like PF Changs that do have good gluten free menus and practices. Eating at restaurants are always a risk, even when they offer gluten free.

    You're welcome to PM me to talk about living gluten free in general if you like. It can be overwhelming when you first start out, and having people to talk to helps.

    If I post my schedule of events and panels I plan on going to here can you just follow me around with gluten-free cookies?

    Kidding. Kinda of.......

    I usually try to keep gluten free cookies on me, and I check/post on Twitter when I can, so you can sort of follow the gluten free cookie trail that way ;)

    Also, what can we do to make Aeryn a physical copy of that certificate that can be framed?

    I assumed it was a physical cert, since it's signed by a guy from Childs Play?

    It's digital, but all I have to do is print it. @HiT BiT made sure it was large enough. I have to really thank him for that cert, he did an awesome job!
