  1. Damn one of the times I regret moving from NY. Hope everyone has fun!

    Plus points for who ever dresses up as Benjaario Greyharis (Benjen/Euron/Daario).

    Also bring back sexy GRRM!

    Lol! xD

    Also, yeah, this announcement comes way too late.. Three days prior? How am I going to get a ticket to New York, get guys for me to swap in for work and work on my costume? Impossible I tell thee!

  3. Nice! I’m a hop skip and a jump away from NYC! I’ll bring the molly! And that picture in the post is fantastic, about to use it as my lockscreen

  4. BAHHHHHHHHH this sounds so fun! I’ll have my own Rave in my living room in Phoenix. *kicks dirt*

    Whomsoever may be going, document and report back here!

  5. Ser Oromis Locke,

    There have been lots of mention of the event- including a poster on the sidebar for a couple weeks. 🙂 This is just a big reminder post.

    Kilgore Tully,

    See this is weird to me- I used to live in NYC, and there were events in Times Square stores and venues etc that I went to all the time. Maybe the fact that I worked a couple blocks from Times Square affected that.

  6. Kristian is gonna be at my college on the 8th. Should be fun.

    NYCC will be even better though. I hope you guys have a great time!!

  7. have a great time everyone who is going and whoever from WOTW is there I think you should gate crash the podcast.

  8. Sue the Fury,

    Yeah, probably because you were already right there. The whole area is just such a hassle; everyone I know goes out of their way to avoid it. And when you have no choice you’d better be prepared to keep those elbows up and do a lot of side-stepping. Throw in that every storefront is either a franchise, a souvenir shop, or a weird independent electronics store, add in a rainbow of bewildered families from around the world and a dash of ominous security, and it’s basically like visiting the airport without the payoff of immediately getting as far away as possible.

    And, I mean, there are plenty of things that necessitate a visit: theater tickets, a buddy’s film screening, those guests from out of town who can’t get from 48th and 6th to 52nd and 7th without help (really), and so on. And we deal with it. And it’s iconic and I can’t blame anyone for wanting to experience it for themselves. So please don’t take this as me dissuading anyone; just add ten minutes to your travel time, enjoy the party, and prepare to feel ambivalent about the nudistas.

    I’d probably be going on Friday if I didn’t have a date. But I’d downright ask the date if she wanted to go if it were, say, at the Bowery Ballroom.
