Like others were asking, is there any advice anyone would like to give a first-time attendee?
1) Actually look at the programming. There's a ton of cool stuff that goes down at PAX East, and it's best to keep tabs on what the haps are.
2) Go to the concerts at least 1 night. Friday is usually the better night, as the Protomen play. And if you're not down with them, I don't want to know you.
3) Remember that this is nothing like an anime convention. It's an older crowd, so we're way more laid back and here to enjoy ourselves without dry humping each other.
4) Expect lines. For real.
5) Learn the Iron Guard position. This is not a joke.
Stalk me on twitter! @theanarchris, THEN IMMEDIATELY REGRET YOUR DECISION!
