F@CK YEAH!

Nah. I am just kidding.

Have fun storming the castle.
 
2012-08-15 02:56:05 PM
I'll be there. Probably. Maybe. Not really sure. Call it 50/50.

Here's that pick of you last year laying down suppressive fire while we raided the Wayfarer's treasure horde of sweatpants.

I've been working on my costume all year. No more lunch trays and duct tape.

I love the D*C ones. If I'm sober enough to remember to go, I'll attend.
 
2012-08-15 03:32:12 PM
So for those of us that reside above ground, where exactly is Dragon Con?
 
2012-08-15 03:38:26 PM
SO and I are flying in to Atlanta on Thursday (afternoon I think).

It's his first dragoncon (my 2.5th, yes that's a half), so this will either result in him having a great time at D*C or having a great time at the bar (despite being a geek, he can get weirded out by fellow geeks). Win win either way, since for the 10 days after DC we'll be visiting my parents and trying to ignore the election crap fest. Preparing the liver will be useful.

looking forward to the new video game track.

I really can't decide if I should go to this or not.

A major, at least the largest regionally in the southeast if not the largest period, fantasy/sci-fi/whathaveyou fan run convention, held in several downtown hotels in Atlanta every labor day weekend.

I'll probably be there, as I'll be there and hanging out with some other TFers most of the weekend already.
 
2012-08-15 03:44:06 PM
Fark Party? Ok.
This is the first Labor Day weekend in along time where a home football game will not take precedence over D*C.

Also, DriveInvasion is on Sunday.

It will be a good weekend.
 
2012-08-15 03:47:00 PM
I'm there.
 
2012-08-15 03:48:37 PM
Hilton Bar, its away from the big events in the Hyatt and Mariott hotels that have a shiaton of people in the Hyatt and Mariott most of the night.
 
2012-08-15 03:49:11 PM
I'm hoping to be there
 
2012-08-15 03:53:30 PM
Sadly I'm not going to make it this year. :p
 
2012-08-15 03:54:16 PM
Man, this sucks. First time in six years I'm gonna miss. Ya'll have fun!

*dances around happily*

Has anyone submitted something to Dragoncon to get it in their app? or is this just an informal thing?

Sorry losers, I'm going to be too busy playing Dungeons & Dragons online, and watching marathon LoTR movies to be able attend some DragonCon geekfest on the date TBD.
 
2012-08-15 04:03:02 PM
I'm just going to pop my head in here and brag about the fact that I've been attending D*C since 1991 and have yet to make it to a single Fark party.

Well, I did lurk around a few times and stare at you all from a distance, but that's it.
 
2012-08-15 04:03:15 PM
I'm going to the aquarium event on Saturday night! I love those whale sharks. Not going to the rest of the con. Too fat this year and the SO is a mundane. I thought he might be able to handle the aquarium, though.

You're going to be missed, man.

That might be fun.

I'll see if I can drop by somehow. ;)

No he won't :p

huh...

I live in Indy but I have been considering attending DC for some time now. Any recommended lodgings and/or pointers from regular attendees?
 
2012-08-15 05:02:02 PM
See, I'd kinda like to go to the Fark party, but I wouldn't want to get anywhere near DragonCon.

Only piece of information I can give you is you're way too late to be looking for somewhere to stay that's in walking distance and reasonably (for a major convention) priced.
 
2012-08-15 05:12:54 PM
I'll be there in Atlanta that weekend! Can't wait for it!
 
2012-08-15 05:14:09 PM
I won't be attending the con but I live in Altanta and have never made a fark party. I even missed the one AT THE BAR I WORKED AT (Manuel's) thanks to an ex.

Let me know where and when and work schedule permitting I'll be there.

As of last month - you're stuck with Midtown or Buckhead hotels.

On the plus side, Con is very train-able. On the minus side, that means you have to actually *leave* before midnight and come back in the morning unless you want to take a taxi at 0-dark-30. Or get cadged out of your sleeping corner in the meeting rooms by security.

shall be fun!
 
2012-08-15 06:42:29 PM
Now there's a thought. Suppose you were to wear a security guard costume...?
 
2012-08-15 07:17:02 PM
I'm going for DragonCon. Been going for 6 years, never had a bad time. I missed out on the Fark party a few years ago to my regret. I've been wanting to meet some of you people for a long time due to my lurking and lack of having something useful or humorous to say.

The big host hotels (and everything close by) is probably full up at the moment. Still worth it to get a room outside the immediate area and "commute," tho - this thing is super awesome. The best description I've heard is "Geek Mardi Gras" - awesome/sexy costumes, really cool celebs, and a TON of drinking/partying. Two years ago, me and some friends got to drink with Adam Savage. It was pretty biatchin'.
 
2012-08-15 07:48:43 PM
Will it be held at Con or somewhere nearby?

I didn't buy my passes early enough and I certainly don't want to drop $50 to crash a couple of parties Saturday night (isn't that why everyone goes?)

That blows, man. We'll pour one out for you.
 
2012-08-15 08:21:41 PM
Well, I can't go either. Too bad, been wanting to do one for a while. But as for a place, is Sweetwater Brewery too far from downtown? They have some great beers there, and brewery tours, and sometimes live music. On Fridays I think. Google it.

It is a strange system though, now that I think about it. They don't "sell" beer. For a flat fee, you get a souvenir glass and tickets for x numbers of beer.

No Heineken, although I don't really see that as a negative.....

It's a deal for $8 and you get to keep your glass. 6 drink tickets for 3/4 beers and all the sorority girls (or frat boys) you can handle.

The whole thing is a 4-day party. I fail to see the point!
How about the SEAR bar (the sailboat) at 11pm Saturday night.
 
2012-08-15 09:22:09 PM
I'm there if it's at a time I can attend... Me and the Rat Husband to Be are getting married at (sort of) Dragoncon this year! So Friday is OUT, cause we will be taking a trolley to the Earl Smith Strand Theater in Marietta and getting hitched in a Doctor Who wedding. Yes, we are that nerdy. But Saturday night or Sunday, if it isn't during the masquerade, then yeah!

P.S. if you see the parade or the masquerade, we will be the ones in the red and gold Time Lord Robes. White gowns and black tuxes are so boring!

Dude, that's right down the road from where I grew up. Weddings in the Square are usually overdone, but that sounds badass. Congratulations!

We do a party every Sunday night during the masquerade. We also do a guerilla party on Saturday nights somewhere in the 3 main hotels (used to be 10th floor Marriott until the 501st dorks took it over, last year we ended up at 12th floor Hilton). Keep me in the loop and I might swing by.
 
2012-08-16 03:53:30 AM
I'm on the fence whether to go to the Con. No Wil Wheaton, no Patrick Stewart, only John Barrowman and Sylvester McCoy (my least favorite Doctor) from Doctor Who. This might be one to miss. There are enough secondary nerdgasm types to still tempt me, so it's still up in the air.

I'd probably go to a Fark party, though.
 
2012-08-16 08:22:07 AM
DAMMIT! Went for the first time last year. Had fun, but I was by myself for work, wished the whole time that I had someone with me to turn to and say "did you see that?".

CSB: The media pass is like *magic*, front of the line and through the doors before everyone else, just needed a mic and a camera
