Came across this on a quick search - seems it might be just for exhibitors or game devs, but what do I know?
PAX East 'Made in MA' Party 2013
March 21, 2013, 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Microsoft NERD Center, Cambridge, MA
That's for exhibitors and game developers only
If I come across anything on the webs, i'll post here! Party on, friends
PAX East 2014 Checklist:
[X] - Pre-registered | [ ] - Train tickets | [ ] - Time Off
Looking at it again, I think it's intended for that audience, but tickets are purchasable for $55.. they're just free if you have a coupon code from a member. So technically, you could go.

Tickets are purchasable for $55.00 or if you have a TLC membership, which can cost $1,000. It's honestly not really a party rather than a press conference for networking. I'd hardly compare it to a Curse or Rockband party, not worth the money unless you work in the gaming industry or go to school for gaming.
It's probably early to see anything. Looking back we did usually have a few things posted by now though. Surprised about harmonix though, they usually post about that pretty early. After what happened last year I wonder if Gamers Gone Wild will be returning.
Made in MA Party - This draws about 1,000 people on Thursday night, it's supposed to be industry-only with MA game devs and PAX exhibitors.
Riot Party - They usually have a LoL-themed party with fans on Saturday.
Pokecrawl - Thursday night before the show. Last year we had 400 people split into eight teams (two teams for each starting color).
Wargaming.net (World of Tanks) party - As other people have said, these Russians know how to crush parties. Last year we had Pete Tong play at a club downtown, they had Diplo at their party for GDC last year, it was pretty nuts.
I hope that Gamers Gone Wild does happen this year. I couldn't believe all the trouble they had with Felt.
Since it's so far away, I don't think I'm going to list it. But thanks for the info!
Yeah, since it's for exhibitors and game devs, I'm going to leave this out. But it's good for those who are in the industry!
It's because it's fan-based! Haha! I'm trying to keep this thread about parties hosted by gaming companies, or parties that have a host, not just a get-together.
I agree with that sentiment.

I love the San Fran WoT (Wargaming.net America) crew though, so I can't really blame them. It was their birthday party after all!
unfortunately most of the parties are open bar, but there are quite a few in clubs and things that are 18+. I guarantee you'll find at least a couple that you can party at!
PAX East 2019!
