East Coast PAX will be in Boston

Via 1UP.
Quote:
The official opening of Penny Arcade Expo 2008 is still a few hours away, but we were able to sit down with Penny Arcade creators Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik to discuss various and sundry PA-related things. Notably, they dropped the news that their next big project -- a second yearly Penny Arcade Expo set on the East Coast -- is slated to debut in Boston in 2010. The new PAX, which will complement rather than replace the existing Seattle event, is still in the planning stages, but the duo has been determined to return to the city since delivering a presentation at MIT a few years ago.
I'll be there like shareware.

As a NYC resident, getting to Boston is cake. Sweet. Just let me know the dates and I'll buy a 2010 calendar now and mark them.

That's great news for anyone on that side of the country. As for me and my fellow Central Time Zoners, let's just keep our fingers crossed for Paxallas 2012!

Fantastic! I wanted to go to PAX this year but I just couldn't justify airfare to get to the West coast. I've even got friends in Boston that I could stay with. Bonus!

Hmm... I think I might be able to make it to this. Boston's a bit of a hike but not nearly the hike that it is to Seattle.

At this point we may be able to rent an entire car (or 2) on an Amtrak just for the EvAv people in the North East Corridor.

I'll be there. I'm only in NJ (I can take a 5min trip to the bay and see Long Island/NYC/etc). Probably just take the train up there.

Some rough estimates using Google Maps:

Seattle: 1600 miles
Boston: 1800 miles
Dallas: 1200 miles

Yeah, I'm not close to anything. (Not that I think they'll be adding a another new PAX in the next few years anyway...)

Only a $22 train ride from Albany (at today's prices), so I should be able to go.
