    The concerts are over by 10, 10:30, and the bars close at 2. Plenty of time! besides, benaroya (or where ever it will be) holds, what, 3000 people? That's a meager 5% of the 60,000 + ppl who are coming. The remainder may want to do something outside the convention center. May.

    They are not over by then.

    that 60,000+ figure is turnstile counting. 3day Pass = 3 people

    <MoeFwacky> besides, BigRed-Worky is right

    The concerts end around 2-3am (depending on the number of encores) and Seattle bars have last call at 1-1:30am. They close at 2, sure, but if you try to order a drink at 1:40 you probably won't get one.

    heh.

    I must be misremebering that very badly then. I wasn't very impressed with the saturday concert last year, seemed like a lot of inside jokes I missing out on. I KNOW we were out in time to wander down to the clubs for street vendor food and to watch the Pacific coast guidos and guidettes do their thing, and we were eating by midnight.

    Still, even with turnstyle counting, we're looking at ~23,000 attendees (assuming all got 3 day passes, which is the least amount of people going), that's still only 20% of PAX maximum. Which means 18,000 people need something to do. Especially in light of this new "pay to get a guaranteed seat" thing, I'd rather spend my benjamins on tasty tasty booze. I'm sure there are others who, even if they're excited about JoCo and Paul and Storm, don't want to squeeze into the show and/or pay extra to be sure to get in.

    Right?

    All of this is probably academic tho, because I'm not local and am ill suited to organize, I'm just expressing interest. If there's anyone else out there?

    Maybe you only stayed for the first act of the concert?

    Regardless, there are tons of groups out drinking and attending other parties during the concerts. I think it's probably a little too late to plan and organize a GoT barcrawl for Prime this year, but probably next year we'll have something going on some night.


    What's the deal with paying to guarantee concert seating? I haven't heard anything bout this.

    I remember seeing someone mention it in a suggestion thread after last year...but I haven't seen anything to suggest that it's actually happening.

    Nope, but it is happening at The Protomen's concert going on on Friday night. It's free to get in if you have a PAX badge, but buying a ticket guarantees entry.

    I know I didn't hesitate to buy a ticket. :D

    I kinda prefer knowing I have a guaranteed spot and would honestly be kinda in favor of that sort of system at the actual PAX concerts.

    Hey guys,

    I'm a new comer and will be attending PAX for the first time. I heard there was going to be a Game of Thrones pub crawl--is that still on? Will there be other people participating? Me and a group of my buddies (8 in all) definitely want to be a part of it. Can anyone give me more information about this?

    There was a suggestion to hold a Game of Thrones barcrawl (this thread), but that idea did not come to fruition as far as I know for this year.

    Oh alright, thanks Zerzhul! Does anyone know if there is any chance anyone would be organizing a parallel event along with the TWDT crawl? It would be pretty awesome, I think and it would be cool to be part of a smaller group too. If so, I have 8 people ready and raring to go :)

    there is a parallel barcrawl thread here: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/143815/fear-and-loathing-on-the-bar-crawl-2011

    however I'm not sure if it's actually happening or not.

    The Protomen concert is happening in parallel with PAX, but it is not officially affiliated. The 'free for PAX badges' deal was actually an agreement struck between the performers and the venue for our benefit.
