It is upon us.. Excitable?, twitching?, dreading queues?

What you need to know::

Who: If you read this you are invited.
Where: Transport hotel at Federation Square
When: Thursday 10th, tomorrow, or perhaps today.

Twitter: #paxbeer so you can find us as the night progresses.
Map: Heres a map

What
Traditionally this has been a very safe and friendly meet up of a bunch of like minded peeps.
Gamers of all walks of life having a brewski or two and just hanging out.
Come on down and meet some people if you're on your own at Pax this year!
Its super weird when you see them wandering round looking lost a day or two later.
Just look for the nerdy T-shirts. badges, handheld games and beards.
Lanyards, and last years badges are a dead giveaway.

Itinerary:
7:00 - 8:30 - Transport (Fed Square) as its nice and central to public transport.
8:30 - An unnamed drinking establishment, let the peeps decide.
9:30 - Bartronica !!! it is awesome you will love it.

All welcome, post here and let us know if you are coming.

I've organised this for the last few years, but I cant attend Pax this year, however I'll do my best to come for a drink.

Cheers, Feral.

(We did this last year, the year before and the year before and the year before, and the year before, AND the year before...)

    Absolutely no pressure to have a drink, OJ is acceptable. It's more about the socialising, talking about games, and meeting some people if you are going to be by yourself at Pax. :biggrin:

    We went in 2013 and drank far too much. Pity there's no pics of that year. @itchbay and myself will be representing the North America team!

    Obligatory "Here is Transport Bar" picture from pretty much every other year lol!

    I will be there :) it's really nice meeting new people, everyone is pretty friendly. Last year the backpack with the screen I was wearing seemed a hit.
    If for some reason Beta bar (now closed) were to do a local cbd event we should so do that, but it's more keeping an ear out for what local things are happening.

    I think GGEZ (Streaming/Gaming Bar) and Gameslab (Boardgame/Tabletop store and Bar) tend to do PAXAus event nights during PAX. You could hit up their social sites to see ^_^

    (nooo we love having you in here @feralmaster!)
    Are you in Melbourne?
    I'm in by lunchtime, and I think I'll see Joker to pass some time

    I'm packing at the moment, feeling a bit unprepared.

    Don't feel scared or obligated to have alcohol either - there's some light food and soft drinks afaik from at least transport.

    It's looking to be OK weather, with low to no chance of rain from 7pm. It will be 13 degrees and dropping though so prepare for that. Having said that the places indoors are nice and warm (even transport at the outdoors part has nice toasty gas heaters), it's just when are inbetween places so should be fine!

    Will I bring my LED backpack again?
    Will anyone top the wine guys story?
    Will we have thoughts on cool places to check out?

    I've been informed that enforcers have a meeting at 7pm, if that is you feel free to join us after that! The Twitter for #paxbeers will be a good way to see what's going on.
