PAX East 2013 IRC Channel Meet Up?
So I managed to track down and meet a few IRC folk at Prime but I was thinking we could have an official get together at East.
I was thinking say lunch or dinner on the Saturday, anyone keen? If so tips on local eateries/places we could meet would be muchly appreciated
We did this at Lucky's Lounge in 2011 on Saturday for brunch, and there were no issues with carding or whatnot.
Other options worth considering:
Chinatown - Either a generic spot or dim sum
Downtown Bar/Restaurant - Might be nice to get away from PAXLand and see more of the city
I'll think on it for a bit ...

I never got a PM on irc (or forums) about getting added to the access list...
Recently there was a fuckup with slashnet services. They lost a server that ran the services and happened to also lose the backups, lol.
They had to roll back services to Jan of 2011.
Here's a sign-up form: bit.ly/IRCMeetupE13 - (Any personal information [phone number/email address] entered into this form WILL be kept private.)
I'll also make a G+ circle for IRC meetup folks I already have on that service, just to keep updates pushed out. I'll keep them to a minimum.
It sounds like Lucky's is our venue. If you hate(d) Lucky's and want to try somewhere else the sign-up form above is your chance to vote for something else!
I'm calling them today to ensure we can actually get in. Just want to get that squared away.
As an alternative there is the Tamriel Beer Garden run by Bethesda from 6:00 - 11:00 on Saturday. Maybe we should try our chances there instead?
EDIT: I'm guessing the Bethesda thing will be difficult to get into. And with the NCAA stuff going on, so will bars. The first year we all met at a Dunkin Donuts. Or, more specifically, multiple Dunkin Donuts because the person that organized wasn't from around here and didn't know there is a DnD on every corner. So maybe a coffee meetup?
Yeah, so the majority of respondents indicated Saturday evening would work best for them so that's what I went with. The majority know about Lucky's so I say we try our luck (EDIT: har har) there. If we get there and it's a CF then we can always hightail it to a Dunkin or something like that. I'd be down for a coffee meetup as a fallback.
