    I'm pretty bummed about not being able to go to many of the after parties so I've considered doing this as well. I live not even 10 minutes from the convention center and would love to hang out with some cool people and maybe even show them around Seattle.

    Hungry for Gamer food? Want some classy drinks with your fellow nerds? Well check out this year's PAX menu that I've negotiated specially with Tom Douglas' newest restaurant, the Carlisle Room! A special menu of themed food and drinks will be available only if you show your PAX badge. This place is terrific, and the drinks aren't just another goddamn screwdriver renamed "mana potion". This place is top notch. Stop By during PAX!!

    Is this through out the weekend or on a specific night?

    Is this event available to those without PAX badges? Being in the Sheraton later on makes me think it will require one, but I'm still unsure.

    It's not within PAX hours or on a PAX day, so I would expect it should not require a PAX badge.

    Piggybacking off Zerzhul, from Nintendo's official blog post they said "Fans attending PAX Prime or who live in the Seattle area are invited.." so I'd also wager badges are not necessary.

    More info on the Giant Bomb event on Thursday, now with Harmonix/Rock Band! Unfortunately, it appears that the Premium exclusive pre-party is already wait-listed.

    https://www.facebook.com/events/815525681900149/
    TL;DR:

    *Come see the staff do something stupid before PAX officially kicks off!
    *Event space is 21+, so bring I.D.
    *RSVPs here are not required! This is more of a save-the-date thing for your convenience. Note also that an RSVP DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY. If we fill up, we fill up!
    *There'll be free food and drinks for everyone who attends.
    *The Giant Bomb staff will be talking roughly until 10:30, after which Harmonix will be showing up to show off some of their new Rock Band game! We'll be in the venue until at least 1 AM, so get some sleep the night before!

    Hey, we’re having a party the night before PAX starts, and everyone’s invited! Join us in Seattle for a night of food, fun, drinks, and entertaining shenanigans. And best of all: it’s free!

    Last year we had a small get-together at PAX, but we felt bad that not everyone could get in, so this year we decided to up the ante a bit and rent a much larger spot at The Parlor Live, an event space in downtown Seattle. There’s room for a few hundred of people to join us as we do something...something wonderful.

    Seriously, we don’t have all the details worked out yet, but we can guarantee you a goodly amount of time to ask the staff questions, shake a hand or two, get something signed, and have a drink or five. We’ll hand out drink tickets on the way in, there’ll be plenty of snacks around, and there’ll be plenty of merch if you’re in the mood to buy something (including some stuff you’ve never seen before!).

    This is a 21+ venue, so bring an ID with you! Feel free to bring a guest, too: it’s free to come, and you don’t even need to be a Giant Bomb member. Heck, you don’t even need a PAX badge! Even if you’re not going to PAX at all, feel free to come by; the more the merrier.

    (Note that we are having a smaller get-together before this show exclusively for Premium members. More details about that are over here: http://giantbombliveinperson.splashthat.com/ )

    The show starts around 9, so swing on by around 8:45 to get inside and get a good seat. If you wind up getting to Seattle later that night, feel free to come by anyway! We’ll probably be hanging around until at least midnight, and you’ll be able to come in and have a drink until we shut the venue down.

    If you can’t make it out to this show, keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details about other events that are going on this weekend, both in the Parlor and at PAX. Hope to see you there!

    After the staff do their thing, we're going to be joined by Harmonix and Rock Band! Bring a few friends, form a band, and compete against other teams for a chance to win dumb stuff!

    Here's a list of Indie MEGABOOTH games that will be set up for you to play during any downtime:

    Barkley 2
    Gang Beasts
    Mini Metro
    Rising Thunder/Stonehearth
    Sometimes Always Monsters
    Through the Woods
    Viking Squad
    Tabletop - Paperback
    Captain Forever Remix
    Armello
    FutureGrind
    Distance
    La-Mulana 2

    Galak-Z
    Tabletop - Skiptrace

    The Nkidu and Friends party seems to have some kind of relationship with Indie Need Booze, but I thought the Indie Need Booze party this year is the Party Hard Launch Party??

    Thursday is shaping up to be pretty jammed packed, but Friday is looking very lackluster right now...
