Hoping to hang out with locals.

Hey Freddie, sqlrob, Constance Reader, Elerena, and VikingATX!

Come up to the Hyatt Regency in Austin!  Room 631.  Party tonight.

Failing that, you guys wanna grab a drink tomorrow?

    Considering I just saw this probably have to do something tomorrow unless you are pulling an all nighter, but after hearing some of your tales from other conventions, you may still be up :)

    You gonna stay over in Dallas on your way back at all? I’m in the Plano area if you want to stop for dinner or something, though the bars are in Dallas proper. Plano is boring :/.

    • Glodson

      It isn’t that bad in Plano.

      Sure, it is no Deep Ellum, but…. well… at least it is better than Frisco.

      • http://gamesgirlsgods.blogspot.com/ M

        That is true. It is better than Frisco.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Sadly, no. :(

      • Glodson

        Ah, well.

        Maybe the next time you are in this neck of the backwoods of Texas. And maybe I won’t be strapped for cash and time as well.

  • Muadib

    Ya I didn’t see this till after I got home from the convention. However I am excited about the pub crawl tomorrow!

  • Elerena

    When and where for the saturday drinks?

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      You guys are the locals, you decide. :P

      There’s a pub crawl tonight.

      • sqlrob

        Any discussions of locations yet, or how to keep track of where to meet? After the lack of progress I’ve made on code today, I really need some relaxation.

  • AmyC

    :-( Had to stay home this weekend. I hope you guys have fun! :-D

  • Fenicks

    Would love to kick it with you, JT. I’m local as well. :)

    As to the pub crawl, I thought that was Friday night, but if you wanna go somewhere close to the convention, hit up rainy st. Definitely unique to Austin, I promise you will not be disappointed, and it’s within walking distance from the Hyatt.

    Also, if you get a break from the convention, you must check out another section of Austin that truly exemplifies the “Keep Austin Weird” theme. That is South Congress – pretty much the entire street. A little further walking than Rainy, but tons of very unique shops and food stands that really represent the diversity of Austin. Also, this is where Joe’s Coffee is, though the iconic “I love you so much” graffiti that’s been in several movies was defaced and painted over earlier this year. :(

    Anyway, any of you guys in town shoot me an email at fenicks.firetamer@gmail.com and we can go from there. Hope to see you all today! :)

  • Fenicks

    Also, if you’re looking for a good lunch recommendation, hit up Green Mesquite on Barton Springs. Not quite within walking distance, but not too far either. Was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” with Guy Fieri.

  • Constance Reader

    Hey JT – what time is the party and pub crawl, and I’m assuming you are referring to the Hyatt Regency downtown, on the river?

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Yup. :) Not sure on the time…

      • Constance Reader

        OK, just keep us updated? So I don’t show up at the Hyatt, hanging in the lobby like a private eye or a stalker.

  • Dream

    Is this a con goers only thing because as a student I lack both the time and the money for the convention proper, but I’d love to get a few hours hanging out.

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Nope! Come on down! :D

  • sqlrob

    Unfortunately I’m swamped with work. I’m not sure if I can make it or not. :-/

  • VikingATX

    Hey JT, thanks for the invite! I didn’t see it until late last night. It was WoW raid night, you know how that goes, I’m sure ;)

    Tonight is also pretty iffy, since I’m not sure if I could get a sitter on short notice, but if so I’ll check back here or twitter to find out where. I’d love to be able to make it out to meet everyone!

  • Muadib

    Kinda sad I missed the pub crawl, but hanging out with JT and David Smalley was a lot of fun.

  • MathMike

    This must have been some party. I haven’t seen you go days without a post since your Vegas trip. ;-)

    JT – lemme know next time you’re in DC. (Just do recall I’m trans, so)
