    Oh dear lord I can hardly deal right now. So excited to meet everyone tonight

    The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

    I know this is impossibly late, but is there a way to still sign me and a buddy up for the bar crawl? Feel free to think of me as Walder Frey, amirite?!

    But seriously, we didn't know if we could actually make it to PAX South until last minute, we can, and we're both huge fans of the show. Is there a way to unofficially play/attach ourselves as a lesser house?!

    @YoungFrey posted this in another thread (travel/transport) and it is super duper relevant to our group:

    "Also, San Antonio seems very keen on policing public intoxication (50 in the last 2 weeks and this doesn't count New Year's). And the fine for that is "up to $500". So maybe try not to get hammered out on the streets."

    In Toronto, I once walked back to my hostel doing pseudo-karate and singing Go Go Power Rangers derrrrrrrrr derrr derrr derderrrrrrrr over and over. I feel like that won't go over well here. I saw a bike rack on the back of a police car and joked "Maybe that's for when they pick up drunk cyclists, ha" but maybe I was right. Anyway, when you're walking back to the hotel, play it cool... or at least walk with people drunker than you so you can sacrifice as needed (it is GoT afterall).

    Sadly, of our Stark group the only one dressing up is likely my husband - who's rocking a more historical look.

    Nonetheless, the whole thing should be gloriously fun. And several bars are right by our hotel. Even better!

    Also, if there's no way for me to sign up, is there anything that prevents me from coming to the same bar and just meeting / drinking with everyone? Or is it really like a closed event?

    It's not a private event, there are locals who might be in the bar. It's just that, there's gonna be 100 people + locals and we only have an hour or less to do the challenge. You might think 'Oh, I'll tag along, one more person won't hurt,' but if 20 other people think that, it slows down the people who are there to drink competitively (even though it's not a competition). Keep an eye on the eventbrite page for a drop or try the Star Wars crawl?

  • Chubby BunnyChubby Bunny Regal Pocket Monster Boston, MARegistered User regular
    I'll do both, thanks! If I do show up, I won't attach myself to the challenge. Was just wondering if it was a good way to meet PAXers before tomorrow or not, given that I didn't sign up.

    To clear up any confusion, bar crawlers need to be at their houses first bar at 7:15. There you will check in with your house lead and get your buttons. Bar schedules are in the original post under each house.

    for wildlings-lannister, instead of leaping lizard go to buckhorn.

    Lizard looked small. It's been a great crawl so far!! I wonder who is leading. :) get shot glasses!

    We had an awesome time running with The Night's Watch - thank you for organizing! If you found a vinyl Jon Snow at the Davenport please give him a good home for I believe I accidentally left him there.

    ...it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.

    Did anyone happen to find a multicoloured beanie at some point? I think it fell out of my bag :(

    Wildlings represented themselves well -- couldn't be happier with the conduct of our group. Way to be excellent, everybody. Loved leading you into glorious battle! Voice definitely took a beating, but had an amazing experience. We were worried about leading a house without having PAX crawl experience, but we've had enough positive feedback that I think we served you well. Thank you guys for making our first PAX extra special.

    Having fun running into you guys at PAX and hearing about the things that excite you. I am not always the most outgoing, but PLEASE don't be shy -- say hello!

    I'm excited to learn the final numbers. I suspect the Targaryens slaughtered us with those shot glasses, but I think we held our own.

    We're already taking to Swae about next year! ;)

    IF YOU NEED COMPLETION PINS:

    @devierue or @Archarzel‌

    Still new to the tweets, but will have it on and Facebook throughout the day. We'll have completion pins and I think a couple of each house in case you have lost or broken one (I was nearly squished by a bus when saving one of mine from certain death)

    No beanie that I'm aware of. If someone does find it and can't get ahold of her, get in touch with me and I'll help as best as I can.

    The lovely housekeeper at our hotel found it! We searched high and low, I'm so shocked (but happy) she found it. Whew!

    This was probably the best night I've had in a year and a half. For some reason names fell through my brain like water through a sieve but I retained places of origin, so thanks to Canada, the Vegas girls, Los Angeles, Houston, Austin, Corpus, Mr. and Mrs. Dallas, Maryland (we'll chug that beer next time), New Jersey, Arizona and Pennsylvania. Hopefully you all know who you are. See you in a year.

    I got wasted and lost my Wildling pin and the pin from the last bar. Any lovely person have extra of those they could mail me(I'll gladly pay you for the cost of shipping)? Also thanks to everyone involved in the event from planning to helping run it, I had a blast even though I don't remember most of it x.x I will definitely be coming back for next years bar crawl!

    I went on a Game of Thrones bar crawl and all I got was this lousy nickname.



    Had a blast. If I ever come back to South, I'll see you all there. Maybe in full Carl/Rick get up. Haha.

    I actually have the Stark and completion buttons. If anyone from the crawl needs one or both of those you can also PM me your address and I'll try to get them off to you.

    Actually nevermind don't do that, send requests to @Etaoin.
