DragonCon 2019 Pseudo-Meetup

Labor Day Weekend is fast approaching in Atlanta which means time again for Nerdi Gras, or as it's more properly known, DragonCon! A general "everything" fandom convention run mainly on volunteer labor, in contrast to conventions that are driven by the marketing departments of major mass media outlets, it's 5 days of fun spread across several city-block sized convention hotels. Going by past year's IRL posts, there's usually roughly a dozen or so MeFites on average who on any given year. That's out of a crowd of 80,000+ attendees, so chances are we'll never run into each other. But the central host hotel also was once The Capitol District's Tribute Training Center a few years ago, so May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor. [more inside]

DragonCon 2018 theoretical meetup

DragonCon 2018 is nigh and the schedule app update is out. Past years have proven that an actual designated time & place for a mefi meetup is logistically unlikely, but, just wanted to open a thread for roll call/friend code exchange/panel postmortems, etc. [more inside]

DragonCon 2015 Missed Connections Thread / Meetup Coordination

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center.

Shatterdome Atlanta, a Pacific Rim Convention

There's a significant number of MeFites who love Guillermo del Toro's robots-punchan-monsters film, Pacific Rim. Shatterdome Atlanta is in its second year and is expanding to 2 days -- June 13 and 14. It's a fun little niche con (I'm on staff). We've got some cool prizes and guests, but above all else, we just want to geek out together about this awesome movie. [more inside]

DragonCon 2014

Several years previously, I've tried to hold meetups at DragonCon, and I practically never find anyone. There is really no reason to believe it'll be any different this time, but I'm posting this anyway, as a place for everyone to say if they're going and make plans, whether they will be thwarted or not. At the very least there is the awesome BOARD GAMING ROOM, a huge packed room containing a table heaped with hundreds of board games to check out, sufficient reason to attend the convention all by itself. Note, the time and place given is the registration line, this isn't a "normal" meetup. [more inside]

Dragoncon 2013 roll call

Dragoncon is nearly here again, who else is going? Judging by previous years, it's unlikely that we can coordinate an actual meet-up once the con gets rolling, but I wanted to open a thread so we can at least say hello to each other in MeFiIRL if not in actual RL. And the new schedule app is out, if anyone wants to exchange friend codes.

End of TropMed meeting in Atlanta

Any MeFites at the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in Atlanta this year? It's coming to an end, but there might be time to grab a drink and meet your fellow parasitology/ epidemiology/ microbiology/ health policy wonks. Tonight is the last evening, but it's possible to have a post-meeting lunch tomorrow afternoon. Meet at the Marquis Marriott, then select a second location for drinks and/or lunch?

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?

Savannah on a weeknight?

Hey, moonbird and I are coming to Savannah for a couple of days. Granted, those days are a Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (we're leaving Wednesday) but we'd still love to get together for drinks or dinner or something along those lines! We're staying downtown at the delightfully named Thunderbird Inn & planning on mostly walking. Anywhere y'all recommend is great; we're easy to please and don't know the city at all.
