Dragon*Con 2012 missed connections thread

Dragon*Con is nearly upon us again, who's going this year? It would be fruitless to attempt a scheduled Mefi meetup since everyone will no doubt have completely conflicting schedules, but maybe some of us will manage to cross paths at some point during the festivities, or just post in this thread after the fact lamenting our near misses?

First Ever Humboldt County Meetup!

I bought himself a house earlier this year in Eureka, and it's meetup time! There's a MeFite who just touched down in Arcata last month, so let's give him a hearty welcome to our wonderful area. Meet your MeFi neighbors and my kitteh posse. On the menu: BBQ, homemade pizza. Leaning towards September 21 (as it's my 41st birthday!) but I've got plenty of flexibility; most Fridays/Saturdays in Sept are open. Event flyer. Feel free to bring grillables, appetizers, etc. BYOB -- but there'll be a 12-pack on hand.
