Maintankadin Blizzcon Meetup NOW WITH PICTURES OMG

Postby Invisusira » Mon Jun 27, 2011 6:50 am

OFFICIAL MAINTANKADIN MEET-UP

Where: Clancy's Clubhouse
About a 10-15 minute walk from the Convention Center.
2191 South Harbor Blvd, 714-750-7500

When: Thursday, October 20th. 9:00 PM.

I'd forgotten that there aren't really "pubs" in the States; they're called "sports bars" and are pretty much all football-themed. Oh well. I've had them put aside a couple tables for us, enough room for 15-20 people.

-----

Alright, looks like there will be a decent number of Maintankadin-ers attending Blizzcon this year. There's been some talk of a meet-up, but nothing really solid. I figure Thursday night would be the night to do it, so this thread is to gauge interest. If we have a handful of people, we can meet up at a pub somewhere; if we have a larger group perhaps we can look into renting a hotel party room or something like that. We'll try to find somewhere near the convention once we see how many are interested.

Also, if you've already booked a hotel, feel free to post where!

I wouldn't have know what to vote for if this option hadn't existed!

I will stop by, but only if I can come up with some way of making Theck break out the math-fu. I would be extremely disappointed if there were no pounding headaches in person.

Thursday night is likely to work for me. I'll probably be staying at my cousin's place in Irvine, and driving over to Anaheim, but I might also be staying in Huntington Beach too.

And because we're creepers, we've also booked there.

We did look into booking the Hilton for at least the Friday night but it seems those rooms are lonnnnng gone now. Ah well.

At this point, it's looking like the only real viable day for meeting up is on Thursday, before the con. We're going to be a bit strapped for time between getting in from the airport (LAX) to Anaheim and then checking in and THEN getting out badges and whatnot. (Exactly how LONG does that line take? If it's more than two hours that's really going to suck.) But we could do some kind of pub around 7 or 8 at night maybe?

It depends on what time you get there, last year we arrived around on Thursday about 4pm at the hotel and by the time we'd checked in and got everyone settled it was was 5pm before we got into the line, took us until 7:30pm ish to get done, pretty insane.

That said, we met a lot of really cool people in the lines and chatted with a ton of them as we passed back and forth. Hell, we spent almost an hour playing "Guess their main's class" with random people after someone started it (High point being a 6'5" guy built like a linebacker & even wearing a Cowboys football shirt, everyone guessing warrior and such, when he revealed it with a shit eating grin it was "Female dwarf priest :D")
