    Wow! They sure moved it up early in the year. We'll have to start planning now, although we will probably go down for just Saturday.

    Thanks for the heads-up, TJ!!! :*

    It is a fun event, especially if you have never been. There are lots of other costumes than star wars there. I have fun just going to look. Earl likes to visit the vendors for collectibles.

    It is about the same time as the last few years. In fact it was a week earlier 2 years ago.

    You guys are welcome to put your fliers at our table. We've requested to be next to the Rebel Legion table (the first time since 2003). :D

    I'm planning to go this year. I've been out of a big con since World Con in Anaheim two summers ago! However, I'm not sure if I'll go for the whole thing or just for one or two days.

    The roommate and I, plus an Indie-Comic friend are considering going to WC 2008 together... less costume, but super awesome vacation time... hmm. Yeah, that'll do pig, that'll do.

    It's never too early to start planning...

    The Marriot is the "official" hotel and it's $190 a night for a quad. If enough people want to go down and make a full trip of it that's not too terrible to stay in a great San Fran hotel for the night.

    *edit* Parking looks to be $50 though -- at the hotel. That hurts...

    OR, if everyone wants to carpool, splitting gas and parking for the day would be way cheap.

    It would be fun for us to do this as a group. How nice for us to go enjoy a Con and not be working it!!!

    The Powell Hotel is nearby and charges ~115 night. Sounds like they either give complimentary BART tickets or free Parking. The roommate and I plan to stay there the entire weekend, Thur night-Sun.

    Does "The roomate" have a name or is "The roomate" the long and the short of it? ;)

    I shall ask the roommate how I should refer to him... he might prefer a l33t handle or other operator tag as opposed to compromising his identity to imperial pigs... no, Seth really doesn't care.

    Somehow every thread ends up being about you...

    I agree, this dicussion needs to be had at the party. It sounds like there are plenty enough of us that want to go to warrant making this an official trip.

    Yeah, I think it's called the JD AND Marric thread... hmm... [face_thinking]

    Maybe they should rename it the TROUBLE MAKER thread... -snickers-

    Of course, then I should probably be posting there the most then!
