No wild turkey for me though, I've completely burned myself on brown liquor. Scotch, bourbon, whiskey, Shit-in-a-bottle (er) Jack Daniels, it makes me do the psychadelic yawn. My stomach just convulses, as if to say "Oh no, you ain't doing this shit to me AGAIN" when it hits my mouth.

I know, it's a terrible thing, I used to be a huge fan of Bushmill's.

I am totally NOT going to GenCon this year. Getting fired has disadvantages.

I am definitely not going this year. Next year is still open up to the posibility of me going. With count and fbmf going next year I have a good reason to go as well.

You think? Darn, I was hoping to have my first real edited copy of my 2009 Script Frenzy Play ... "The Sexy Sushi Party." It's all about the SUSHI!

Or religion. We better not discuss that either.

I do need a refresher course on "The Nacho Incident." The game is so much easier to play when the wild turkey is flowing and others are explaining it. I got it at home and couldn't explain it to others.

I've never had good sushi before. I've had lots of really bad sushi though. I do like crab and barbecued eel though.

Maybe we can play Ninja Burger or Chez Geek or whatnot. And get a growler or two. That sounds like good times.

We could always go to the Mikado again. There are a number of great places for raw oysters (for a place so far from the ocean the raw oysters are great there or they were the last time I was there). On the other side of the spectrum, I love the Steak Ďn Shake.

Steak and shake is exceptional for fried foods. I also like to hit a White Castle on the way there.

There's a little place near the Omni called the Red Eye Cafe. You can get beer at any time of day or night, they serve breakfast foods 24/7, and they have a pretty good chili burger too. Nothing like starting your day with a tall New Moon and some waffles before a day of gaming and debauchery.

Was Red Eye typically crowded? I may have to look for it...

They were slightly crowded during breakfast, but typically I wasn't there on peak hours. I never had to wait for a table. Unusual for such a small place. However, the food is excellent.

I'm thinking if you left the lobby door of the Omni it was around a corner, like within 5 minutes walking distance or so. I can't quite remember though.

I'll second the recommendation for the Red Eye. It's got great pies.

Also, I'm abgout 85% sure that two years ago, one of the waitresses there was trying to sex me. I was just really not in a good mental place two years ago and I didn't pick up on her signals. (I was told by my brother that a woman telling you she really wanted a warm body beside her in bed was very likely being very blatant that she wanted me. Unfortunately, the divorce was still too fresh and I wasted most of Gencon having panic attacks.)

So, I reckon this is the stickied thread...is there an official meeting place/time?

This thread is even quieter than it was last year. I'm guessing a whole lot of non-attendees?

My wife's family vacation was falling on the exact same days, but since she is gonna be in her 3rd trimester by that date it appears that we probably won't want to be leaving the state. So it seems like I may be able to attend afterall. I already scheduled the vacation time off, but I have yet to buy any tickets.

Does anyone have any statistics or official announcements of the GenCon people having to put the 4E tables into the same room as the other D&D tables?

Because that'd put a fire in my loins.

My wife and I are attending but we were too slow to register to hit up any games, other than a d6 Star Wars and Shadowrun game. We're checking out the seminars.

My Google-fu is apparently weak this morning...

How do I tell who the GENCON featured guest that everyone will be lining up for autographs for will be this year?

I know, for example, that Weis and Hickman show every year, but I'm talking about the cult geek movie/television icon a la Wil Wheaton last year.

I can find reference to authors and artists, but no movie/television personality.

It's possible they haven't announced it yet - I don't see it anywhere on their site yet.

So, I just bought my tickets to pax-east. I know I missed some of the people who went last year.

So is anyone else thinking of going to PAX-east? There was a great bar just outside the venue, last time I was there.
