PAX is Finally here

Le_GoatLe_Goat Frechified Goat PersonBostonRegistered User regular
I got off the T this morning at South Station for work, as I do every weekday. Usually, there's some hipster duo playing violins in an "ironic" fashion or a solo guy jamming reggae, both obviously playing for tips. Occassionally, you get the drunk crazy guy who argues with his shadow in the corner; don't tip him, though. But not today, my friends. Today, I got off the T and saw a kid playing the ocarina for cash. Yup, PAX is finally here

While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    I feel like the only person who isn't leaving til tomorrow! For PAX Prime I'll get there Thursday and leave Monday, but for East I just show up Friday and leave Sunday. Upset I'm missing a few cool panels though, maybe I'll change my plans next year. Either way, almost there!

    Same here. I'm giddy. I usually drive in, but I'm staying at the Westin for the first time, so I get to have paxmas eve for the first time.

    Although I'm leaving tonight, from Los Angeles, I won't get into Boston until 7:30 am.

    Money, work and school prevented my group from arriving today. Instead we'll be hopping on a bus at 5am tomorrow to make the trip.

    I am so sad that we can't be there today/tonight! :( We've vowed next year to find some way to stay at the Westin Thursday-Sunday.

    I'm about to walk over to Lucky's for lunch...just because I'm ready to be near the BCEC. PAX is here.

    I am literally only registered on this forum for the PAX East PokeCrawl; Red Gold four years running. Feel free to ask questions regarding Boston Area bars, restaurants, attractions, etc around PAX East.

    Does the front of the BCEC already say "welcome home" on it? Last year I almost cried when I saw that.

    Anyone know what 'teh' event to go to tonight is? I know a lot of them are currently sold out but since I am a late bloomer due to other commitments, I'd love to hear some suggestions. I live in the area, so I have room if a couple of people need a ride to a suggested event. Please let me know or email me: l4zzaro@gmail.com

    Jeez, I can never find those "red eye" flights. Would've preferred that.

    Maybe, to me PAX doesn't start until the BCEC opens its doors, everything before and after is unofficial and doesn't count.
