Dude. Get the heck out of Seattle. The convention center is not only too small to handle PAX (with large events spread over multiple cramped rooms) but it's pretty lousy.
Did anyone else get tired of waiting in line for a toilet in a crowded, filthy bathroom only to find no toilet paper in the stall? And regardless of your reason for visiting the restroom, you always end up waiting in line to dry your hands. Five sinks and only two hand dryers (no paper towels) means a long wait and undoubtedly there were a lot germs passed around last weekend because just didn't bother.
But if you didn't mind the bathrooms, surely you did mind the dearth of places to eat. As I recall, our choices were:
1. Wait in a 1/2 hour line for crepes
2. Wait in a 1/2 hour line for subway
3. Wait in a 1 hour line for tacos
4. Wait in a 45 minute line for pizza.
Gee, how about none of the above?
So, as long as I'm starving I might as well not drink water either since the water coolers ran out of the life-giving liquid at around 10:15am and were rarely refilled.
Fortunately, as I stumbled back to my hotel (exhausted, starving and severely dehydrated) there were lots of friendly, scary alcoholic panhandlers willing to help me find my way back.
In short, the center was too small, poorly maintained and in a bad location. Dud.
Don't get me wrong, I had a good time at PAX this year but the venue left a bad taste in my mouth.
