Looking for people to meet up!

Okay this might be a little sad to ask but... Here's a quick story.

Around Summer 2014 I had a group of friends that I played League of Legends everyday with. I currently live in Michigan and my friends all knew each other in real life and lived around Texas, some in San Antonio, some in Oklahoma etc etc.

During this time, my friend Pete heard that PAX south was coming to San Antonio in Jan 2015 and passed a joke that we should all meet up and attend it. As time passed, we began to grow more and more interested in actually attending, maybe renting a hotel for the weekend and just hanging out for the first time.
As I had recently moved from Northern Ireland to Michigan, I don't have a lot of real life friends in my area so I was all for going and getting to know these people whom I played hours of League with everyday on Skype/Curse Voice etc. We all decided after a while to just say "screw it, lets just buy the tickets before they all sell out" as the all day passes had already been bought up and only the single day ones remained - of which I bought a Saturday pass.

However, such as life is, one by one we all kinda drifted apart. One friend moved back home to Arizona, another I haven't heard from in about 5 months so sadly enough, no one is actually going to the Pax event anymore. :(

But this is where you can help! I've always wanted to attend a Convention of this size as there were rarely ones of interest back home in Northern Ireland. It'd be amazing if there were people going to Pax South and wouldn't mind meeting up with me and letting me tagging along! I just don't want to attend alone and spend the whole weekend by myself when I should have been going with 3-4 other guys. Thank you so much in advance!

tl;dr - I would love to meet up with people going to Pax South as I've already bought my ticket but plans have fallen through with friends.

Thank you

    You're sure to find plenty of other solo attendees if you look around. Remember that a lot of us are introverts however so you may have to make the first move.

    Awesome! Maybe we can set up a meet point for people who are attending alone such as myself. I'm driving 25 hours just to get to this event so I'd like to have *someone* to keep me company. xD

    It's easy to meet people at a PAX event. Just say Hi. You'll find most people will be more then willing to talk about our favorite hobby (Gaming). You'll meet a TON of new friends. This will be my fifth PAX convention and I can't count the amount of amazing people I've met.
    Check out some of the pre-Pax events, like the Magical Mystery Tour and the Pre-Pax board game nights. There are always great people there. Above all, have fun and enjoy!

    Sounds good then Khaytor! Hopefully its as easy as you say! Sadly, I'll not be in town for the pre-Pax stuff. I'll probably be arriving on Friday evening/night after the drive and wanna hit the hay asap for Saturday's events.

    are you coming in on Thursday? Come to the PRE-PAX game night at the Hilton. Look for me or tweet me/find me on guidebook or message me here and I'll get you in some games or hang with my crew. :)

    I'm coming up Thursday evening and I'll be flying solo till Friday afternoon. If anyone's down for drinks and games or something I'd definitely be up for it. I hear there's a thing going on at the Hilton too, might be a good spot.

    He's also a pretty good support as well if you build him tanky. Kinda acts like a mix of Alistar and Leona. But yeah for sure. I'm super excited to meet everyone!

    On Thursday I would suggest you all Uber to "Brass Monkey" It's about 5 minutes from downtown. The DJ they have is from austin and plays a lot of great dance music. His name is Glitoris. He is voted top dance night every years in Austin and does an amazing job here as well. Btw, it's 75 cent wells all night...can't beat that.

    There are about 4 other bars on the street you could go to as well. All pretty cheap
