I posted on the event wall, but for those that may or may not read it, and read this more often...


Please be careful on the night of. The area around the Convention Center as well as Staples' Center is always LITTERED with police. There will likely be checkpoints as well as increased CHP patrols on freeways pulling people over merely on suspicion of speeding. If you're not within walking distance of the bar, then try to arrange cabs or a DD.

No one wants their fun spoiled by the LAPD/California State Highway Patrol.

Hmm...I just left the Ubisoft party 30 minutes ago and didn't see any LAPD anywhere. Streets were barren.

Gonna put a YMMV on this one. =) Though admittedly, a little after midnight is fairly early.

Of course being responsible is a solid idea no matter what. Always good to be aware and prepare (damn, that's a terrible rhyme).

This totally feels like the star wars lineup in anticipation of episode I. I will be happily chatting and waiting in line to get in. Be on the lookout for cancermatt :)

I got a message on Facebook about the capacity. I guess this means no +1?

Coming from out of town though.

What are the closest/cheapest parking spots?

honestly, i say metro centers or anywhere else that's not parking around the lacc, it's way too messy; and it runs most of the night, and will be cheaper that parking... go look it up on www.metro.net/ and show that you are truly a cag... you'd avoid the fuzz running wild on you, and if you refuse to pay that extra 3 dollars to get that game on a gamefly sale, but have no qualms about paying 10 for a hole in the wall parking spot 3 streets away from the lacc, then you, my fellow cag, are doing it wrong...

I'd agree, but this is Downtown LA we're talking about. So safety > $ in this instance my friend.

See you guys there!

I made plans to go with a friend, but he says he doesn't want to get there early. I'm really worried how bad the line is going to be.

I believe the line will be super bad. I'm out. I'm going to one where I know I can get in without waiting over an hour just to do so.

you guys are thinking of skid row... and that's on the other side of town, by 2nd and 3rd... though the reviews of the place lead you to believe that there are classier joints around; i personally found last years' spot, the golden gopher, rather quaint and worthy of the l.a. noire authenticity award, had a strong speakeasy vibe to it...
anywho, i'm otw there, so see ya' crazy kids down there!

First in line. There's a bunch of cops investigating a trash can explosion up the street.

yeah, my buddy just told me about that, it was on 4th and broadway so i'm almost expecting delays around the area...

Sad I didn't make it - called onto a rush project and was up producing until...oh, about NOW. Didn't even get to E3 on Wednesday, so I made them pay for it.

GRR! No one had better call me for work today.

It was a really nice party. Thanks for throwing it, Cheapy! I think I saw Shipwreck there, not sure. You both were involved in a conversation so I did not want to bother you.

After the party, I somehow wound up at the World of Tanks party because my friend had some business to do there. What a strange night.

First in the door, first on the floor.

Great meeting Cheapy, CancerMatt, those two guys from Pennsylvania and one from Jersey, that random group of Asian guys (and 1 girl) I helped grab drinks for (and ordered a Vodka/redbull instead of a Vodka/tonic- my bad), and everyone else who accepted my GamerBlockParty.com (GamerEventsLA.com) business cards.

Infinitely better than the Kotaku party at the same place last year. CAG really is a great community.


Ah, you were the one handing out those cards. I was sitting with some friends at a booth right by the DJ. I think I had a bit too much to drink at that point to really know what the card was all about! lol.

Was a good time! I had a hangover at E3... but it was nice having a drunk convo w/ Shipwreck.

I've given him a lot of shit in the past - but he's a nice guy. Much respect gained!

Thanks again for the party, only had a few beers because I had to drive back home to Santa Monica, but definitely had fun. I went solo, but ended up meeting quite a few interesting people including a guy that tried to set me up with a lesbian. It didn't work out so well since she is a lesbian and I'm married. Saw a few people get carried out of the place, also at some point during the night the painting at the entrance to the men's bathroom disappeared.

I got a chance to briefly thank you guys for the party near the end of the night when the place emptied out. I was the guy in the blue shirt that asked Shipwreck what his game of show was on my way out, but I'm sure you guys had a lot of people coming up to you that night.

Thanks for helping us order those drinks! A couple people from the group got pretty faded by the end of the night.

If the guy who spilled the beer outside and then exclaimed "I'm fat" is in here, I just want to let you know that that comment made my night. It was totally one of those "had to be there" moments, but it was just insanely funny.

Great party, I had more fun than at the Frag Dolls one :)
