  1. I'll probably make it to worldcon. Will bring the family, and my wife keeps linking me stuff about Iceland on Facebook, so probably will stop off there on route. Maybe even bring the MiL to watch the kids (although she usually out drinks me, so not sure if that will work out the way I intend). There's even a nonstop from LAX to Dub!
  2. Yeah they just added that. I might stay at the fairmont at that rate, but don't really want to shlep back and forth from the convention center. If a bunch of people want to book rooms at fairmont, I'd be game to stay there. I always like meeting up with people in the lobby, so am a fan of designating a hotel for the BwB! Note: If you have SPG Gold (IE from AMEX Platinum) you can get Marriott gold, and land free breakfast in the lounge at the Marriott.
  3. I'll be there for sure. Debating on which hotel to book. Probably the Marriott, since I've stayed there a bunch of times, and it is closer walking distance to the Fairmont. Fairmont looks like a kick ass party location. We better score one of the poolside suites! It'll be just like LA. I'd consider staying there, but it will suck to keep walking back and forth, plus the rate will probably be crazy. I'll probably be driving up from LA on Wednesday. If anyone ends up needing a lift (either if it is cheaper to fly into LAX or you are from LA), we can coordinate closer to the date. Will give us a big car to drive around town if need be.
  4. At the bar outside (they have heaters), dinner is inside downstairs if you don't see us or coming late. Supposed to start raining any second.
  5. Reminder, dinner tomorrow if you are around. Happy to add people last minute, but may need to divide to 2 tables. Place is near the main esplanade or what not in city center (or magnum store if you've be there), at 7 pm.
  6. Minor trip update - Rode the train in, seemless customs/immigration, smooth check in and hopped on the train to pasila. 10 min door to door. Bumped into pod within 30 seconds of registering. Went to a panel on space, 50000000 people in line, was like a George panel. Went to ran and lindas panel, which was interesting as a member of the community. Would have been good if we could have asked some tough questions. Met up with some bwb. Went to trivia which was fun, ended up grouping with some random super fun team and had an epic fail on trivia. I literally couldn't remember stuff I read last week. Then headed to eat/drink...
  7. For fortress tour - Meeting at 10 in front of central station, will take tram from there. There s an English language tour starting at 11 we will try to join.
  8. My wife and I will do dinner sat! We are planning to do a tour to the castle in the morning if anyone is interested. Probably best day weather wise, so figured we do that while we can.
  9. I take Uber everywhere in the world (well Lyft actually). Usually fast, cheap, and talk to interesting locals. Assume it works in helsinki?
  10. Yeach it was a shocker to see the weather... Had to dig out a jacket and umbrella. Since nothing is specifically organized, anyone interested in meeting up in a bat near central thursday? Will call around and see potentially places if si.
  11. Also, I arrive Thursday via train @3 pm and leave Monday via plane @ 6am. Staying at solos torni. If nothing is happening Thursday evening, Happy to try and organize a meet up at a pub. There is o'shaes and solos sky terrace at my hotel., or can figure out something else.
  12. (Repost from facebook) Normally I let Lee do all the food organizing, but I decided to set up dinner (at a gastropub, so reasonably priced) for Sunday August 13th (shooting for 7 PM). Location is Bryggeri Helsinki a Finnish gastropub, afew blocks from the central station: http://bryggeri.fi/en/ Was shooting for 10 people, have 10, but can up the reservation if anyone else wants in.
  13. Sounds good! This book is single handedly making me go from no checked luggage to checked luggage, so wanted to make sure! Getting George's autograph is easy, Ran's? Not so much...
  14. I'm in of course. PM me or send me a note on Facebook and will give you my phone number if interested. I get in Thursday though and am at sokos torni. Ran - how do we get your autograph on our world of ice and fire book? You have a signing time or should I just ambush you and Linda?
  15. Nice!
