As far as I know, AE is planning on an event 2013 which makes sense - no way they could do anything this year.

This is my biggest doubt with AR. I have very faith in these complete unknowns actually being able to pull off an event this scale... definitely not enough to give them money before I see the con actually happening. Not only do they have a very ambitious place to hold the con, but they also have a very challenging event schedule that they're promising... But we'll see.

I'm definitely going to the Zombie walk on Saturday, we've been going for several years running now. Not taking a day off work for AR on Friday, though I'll most likely check it out on Sunday.
