Blizzcon is almost upon us, and I'll be attending for the first time this year. One of my Raid Leaders has a place out in Santa Monica, so this will also serve as a sort of meet-up for us, and rumor has it we'll be going to disneyland the monday after blizzcon.
Of course, one of this biggest perks of the weekend will be the Hunter Party happening on Saturday night. It sounds like there are going to be a lot of hunters coming, including some really big names, who I'm getting a little bit fanboy-ish about (don't worry, I'll try to play it cool), as well as a lot of hunters with whom I've worked on the Hunter Party Podcast (we're discussing having a live from Blizzcon Hunting Party Podcast that weekend, though I'm not sure when we'll fit that in), and the Warcraft Hunters Union, and several folks that I've gotten to know a bit through the Forums.
Other than that, I don't really have my weekend planned out that much. Anyone have suggestions? Guides for Blizzcon noobs? Anything I just can't miss?
Outside of the actual con, it looks like there is tons of stuff going on. Hestiah the Druid posted this handy guide to parties happening at Blizzcon. I'm looking forward to some of those. Bendak from Eyes of the Beast, and Wow Insider, got VIP tickets for Solar and me to go to the Wow Insider / Wowhead party, so I'm definitely looking forward to that. There's also the World of Podcasts party, which, as a newer member of the WoW podcasting community, I thought might be fun. And of course the CTR party sounds like a good time.
Most importantly, I have no idea what this beer swap is or who hosts it, but I really need to find a way to get to that. As much as I'm excited to try beers from other places, I'm even more excited to let people see how amazing Chicago beer is these days. We may have been late on the craft beer scene, but we've really come into our own in the last five years or so.
Anyhow, any of you who have been going to blizzcon for years, I'd love some ideas for how to spend my time.
