Here's what I am doing: Geek geek revolution Once upon a timeLost girl Agents of SHILEDDracula Walking deadTattoos

Jotunheim raid in Harlem! Will be splitting to head to the Korra panel, while the others will be milling about on the show floor.
To all you luck Geeks that got/are going Today or Tomorrow, hope you had a great time!
For the rest of us going on Saturday, you will notice a very tall Gambit, a Rogue, a 7 of 9, and "Whatever Taran decides to be," as well as some Muggles from Boston. The Jotunheim Raid leaves Mt. Vernon at 9:00 to get to Javit's at 9:45-ish. Gambit is heading to the Legend of Korra Panel ASAP to secure his place.
1 · October 11, 2013
I'll be there again today (Fri) and tomorrow. Cell communication may be very spotty, so arrange meeting places and times with your group. See you there! :)

You won't be able to find Taran cause he'll be the tenth doctor like everyone else at the con. :-)
gotta divvy up the fangirls between as many dozens of us as possible
The Hapil-ry (Harley Quinn, Sherlock, Watson, Female Doctor, and Steampunk Mead Wench) shall be joining the Jotenheim raid's commute! We'll either meet you on the train or be at your place by 8/830ish.
I have told the lot of you about this. I'm on the Comic Con crew as Spareboard the next 3 days. That means I will be moved around throughout the day depending on where they need help. So, look for a guy in an orange shirt, yellow ears and yellow wings. That will be me. See you there.

Sunday:11:00 - Defiance2:45 Big Finish

Wait, the Thrilling Adventure Hour panel got changed to 2:45. In that case, I may hit up the Beyond the Webcomic panel at 12:30.
ALL RIGHT GEEKS. These are all the panels I'm going to by day. If you want meet, I will be dressed up as one of these girls: http://x.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/mg/7/a0/4e9b1d972988e/detail.jpg.

0 · October 7, 2013
see u friday at 4:15 ^_^
On saturday I may be going to these panels:
50 years of Dr. Who11:15-12:15am Room 1A23
Punkin Chunkin Mythbusters12:15-1:15pm Room 1A22
Either John Barroman Q&A or Dracula Screening
and possibly Ink Fusion6:45-7:45pm Room 1A03
I'll be wandering aboot in my red dalek dress though, so say herro if you want to.
I'm only going Friday so if anyone like Annie or Abby can meet up Friday at a panel or know what the schedule is for Friday let me know.
There's an app with the schedule. It's way better than using the site :) I'm foing to post all my panels in a moment actually
Another Announcement! Let's post the panels we are definitely going to, so that we can meet up with other Geeks at these panels and not have to sit alone like that time I went to the Mouse Guard panel and was very sad and lonely...
11:00 - The Legend of Korra
1:30 - ABC's Once Upon a Time
5:00 - Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
Those are all on Saturday. There are some others that I'm thinking about, like the 12:15 Mythbusters Punkin Chunkin, the 2:45 Graphic Novel talk, and the 6:30 Vertigo display, but I'm not hell bent on those.
OK, all! Decision made! We are going to join up with the NY Sci-Fi/Fantasy group at Quinn's, 356 W. 44th St.
This way, we can meet up with other geeks, spread our joy, and have a fully geeky time. Also, this place has drink specials! And Food!
Later on, if we want to head out on our own as Westchesterites, we can do so. This Ohioan is still not used to 4:00 bar closing times, and I still get excited about it!
Here's the info site: http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/Whats-Happening/Events-I-Q/NY-Sci-FiFantasy-NYCC-After-Party/
Yay for no cover charge!
Who's going on Thursday? It'll be a much smaller crowd so maybe a few of us can meet up? Or maybe grab dinner somewhere?
Additionally I think it'd be nice if people wanted to share the panels they are DEFINITELY going to so people can potentially group up for those, especially those who may be new to the group or are going solo to the con. Shared interests and all that :)
Otherwise I'm all for Michael's suggestions about the afyer parties. We'll be out of Javits and can use our phones again!
0 · October 2, 2013
I'll be there Thursday!
0 · October 3, 2013
Hi! Hope you don't might i join the thread. I might be able to go Thursday if anything depending on what the plan is. I only saw mostly autograph sessions and a couple of panels for Thursday. And I only saw tickets online for Thursday events only.
I'm planning on going Fri and Sat. May do the Thursday night concert too.

There's been lots of talk about meeting up at Comic Con on here, but from my experience trying to gather a lot of people at the convention only leads to not having any fun. There is very little (well, not really any at all...) cell service, and I didn't have much luck with the Internet either.
SO! I've been trying to figure out a good place to go for an after-party. There are a few places that NYCC "sanctions," but I figured those wouldn't be exactly what we are looking for.
There are two options that I've come across that seem like possible contenders:
One is a party that is being hosted by the NY SciFi and fantasy group. They are having it at Harley's Smokeshack and Barbecue.
The other option that I thought of was for us to have our own after party. There is a place called the "Tempest Bar" that seems like a good prospect. They had a Comic Con event the last couple of years, but one doesn't seem to be going on this year. Why not host our own for the Westchester Geeks?
My space ran out... That happens a lot with me...
Anyway, I figure to give a few days to get your input, then I'll make some calls to try and set something up. We'll have to do so quickly, since the Con is fast approaching.
One last thing, both these places seem to be on the average-price range. They are both close to the Javits.
Here's links to the NY SciFi information, and the site for the Tempest. you have 36 ish hours to discuss. ;-P
Eff, sorry to blow up all your's emails...

There is a bar at 40th and 8th called Beer Authority that will be serving a special Brooklyn Super Hero Beer.
1 · October 2, 2013
The Brewery has other like events going on, but this spot is literally across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and walking distance from Penn/Grand Central and various subway lines.
I'm down! I think we should make our own event. I've been in the group a while and I've never been able to make it to a meetup so this would be fun! I think we have enough people on friday that would could have a good size group. Steve, I am a hophead too so beet authority is right up my alley
Beer* not beet... only dwight woild want to go to the beet authority
Theres a official after party https://www.facebook.c...
Not sure about dropping 20 bucks for a packed after party after being in a packed place.
This sounds like a great idea Michael! I'll be hosting almost half a dozen people that weekend so I wouldn't be able to really meet up with the group. These sorts of things are best done in small groups anyway. I've been trying to look out for all the after parties as well so I'll post them as I see them and hopefully we can all see each other!
I guess I also forgot to say that I'm probably not going to be there myself Friday (grumble work grumble) but will be there Saturday and Sunday. Sunday I may have to head back to Westchester after the Con ends since I have friends from Boston leaving that day, but we'll see.
I'll be going on Saturday only, but would love to meet some of you awesome folks! :)
I'll be there Saturday along with Thursday and Friday.

Anyone going on Sunday? It'll be my son & mine 1st time. Any suggestions so as not to get overwhelmed by the crowds & all the choices?
0 · September 26, 2013
I'll have my niece with me on Sunday.
I'm going Sunday :-)
Alright! I can't wait! Are we meeting up?
0 · September 20, 2013
I have the 4 day pass. I can meet anyone on any of the days :)
0 · September 15, 2013
I want to go but I heard tickets were sold out already....
Hi I joined the group a while back but I can never really make it to Westerner (I live about 1hr away). However I'm going to nycc on sat is the group meeting at all at nycc? if so where and when?
0 · September 5, 2013
Yes there will definitely be a meeting place/time posted! Glad you will be joining us!
I'm thinking it's best to wait until the panal schedule is up before we set times for any meetups at Javits, so as to try and figure out if meeting for an event is good or just for some lunch or something.
Also, I'm working on some ideas for after-party fun, especially on Sunday since that Monday is Columbus day and I/others have off.
We do have to set times to meet, though, since cell service at Javits is notoriously bad.
Oh, working for TheBatmanUniverse.net

Hey al! Quick reminder to get you tickets if you haven't yet. If you order before Sept. 6th, they mail them to you and you get to walk in easy. If not, then you have a loooooong line to wait in in the morning.

Just so you all know, Saturday tickets have run out, and Sunday is close, so if you haven't gotten them yet, TICKETS NAOW! unless you want to try your hand at Craigslist or the comic shops in the city...
0 · August 14, 2013
I'll most likely be working the event again so I'll post where I'll be posted so you can stop by and say hi, if you're not too busy.
