Hey if you are not going to the concert Friday night because of a late flight etc etc Then how about we all meet up for a mixer of sorts at one of the hotels?

I'm not going to the concert because it is coming to Cincinnati in December.

anyone?

I'll be arriving late Friday - but I may be up for a meet up that night. I will consult with my travel bud......


Whereabouts are most staying? The official FD hotel?

I think we're all close to each other in the group of hotels within that area.

I think Eric Geller will be with me, you have been warned :p

Thank you guys! This will be my second Star Wars convention (CIV was my first) and I hope we all have a GREAT time.

Do you have an idea where this little reunion may be? We're going to stay at the official SWFD3 hotel (Hampton Inn Richardson) and we'll rent a car, so anywhere near that would be okay.

Just 16 more days to get the party started!

Ill be at the concert Friday night, but if anyone else has ambitions of a get together Saturday night as well (after we appease our loved ones with a really nice dinner for coming with us to this con) I would be up for that. And I would love to have the chance to rub elbows with a fellow SW fan from Chile.

I can't affor to go to the concert and will be at the Plano Center setting up until they close. LMK where you guys plan to meet and I'll swing by.

Dustin, will you be at the Plano Center Fri evening too? If so, do you need a ride back to the hotel?

I'm interested! We will be driving into town on Friday from Denver, so it may be a bit late when we arrive.

The concert is coming to Denver, so I am down with pre-con festivities.

I'm at the Hampton Inn too and would love to meet up. I think I get in at 10:30 but am trying to get out of work early and catch the flight that gets in at 8:30.

Hey guys! Just a little under two weeks to meet you all and have a great time. Can't wait!

Meanwhile, does anybody have an idea where we can get together on Friday night? I don't know the area or the hotels, but maybe there's some local folks who can throw an opinion here.

I know a couple of people outside of the forums that would be very happy to attend this meeting and it'd be great if we can let them know in advance where we'll be on the 23rd. We can even invite the people who'll attend the concert to meet us afterwards! I know the breakfast is very early, but come on, how many opportunities do we have to have this kind of fun, Star Wars style!

See ya in 10 days!

We'll most likely be at the Hampton since that is where everyone is staying it seems :)

Just look for a bunch of guys wearing Star Wars shirts :)

There is no " meet me at the water tower at 6:00pm" plan going on really. Find us or we'll find you either way there should be a good handful of fans mulling around. Come out of your rooms and check the lobby etc etc, you never know who you might meet or who I might find to drag along . . . .

Sounds great! Count me in! We caught the 10/10 SW concert in Sacramento so we won't be going in Dallas.

Our flight arrives around 1pm.. So we'll definately be around! Hampton Inn for us.


See you there!!

I have been trying to find out how early to show up to the concert to try and get everything in. How long does it take to get through the prop room they have set up and is there anything else to do before the concert?

You posted this in the wrong thread. This is for folks NOT attending the concert.

I hope they have a bar at this hotel. Last time there was no bar, so I bought a 6 pack of Corona and sat in my room watching a Batman cartoon . . . I got CRAZy that night!!!

The Hampton inn website lists several restaurants nearby including a Humperdinks within walking distance. I've never heard of this place but it appears to be a restaurant/brewery chain.

So if we go there I'm sure Eric could join us!

"within walking distance" = across the street
(according to Google Street view which I've used to plan my entire trip. LOL)

On the Humperdinks website the food looked appetizing & most importantly they have beer!

Hi everyone!

We've already check in at the Hampton Inn @ Richardson. Just came back from Humperdink's bar (and brewery). Very nice, tried the "Texas Blonde" beer. I think it'll be great for our meeting tomorrow evening.

See you all guys real soon!

Quick sign up for Humperdink's e-mail list. They'll send you a buy-one-get-one coupon so you can save some cash for autographs and whatnot.

Saw a few photos on Twitter - hope to see more when you get back. Always good to see some fellow Scummers meeting up - plus you guys combined my two favorite things (Star Wars and quality Microbrews)
