So that was my first time relying on Hotelpocalypse ... whew.

I set up two PCs with two browsers each, another PC with one browser, two iPhones and an iPad. The PC with one browser was the only one I actually clicked on the email to reach the waiting room, and it got in first ... almost instantly. One of the iPhones was second at about 2 minutes and the rest started going off after 6 minutes. I used my info for the first one and registered friends with two others.

Now I have to wait until Monday to see where I wind up. The six hotels I picked were all the big ones right next to the convention center so we will see. I'm seriously sweating this in case I did something wrong.

Same question. Also, someone score me some passes. If you also let my wife and son come along I'm sure I can talk her in to cooking some biscuits and gravy for breakfast...

If anyone has an unused pass, I am looking for one for my wife. I think I am going to try to throw her into the deep end this year.

Also, I managed to snag a random room at the Hyatt that was thrown back into the pool today. Finally, a good turn of events in this hotel madness!

Any word on that Heroes Brew Fest thing? I haven't heard a peep.

I haven't heard anything either. Their website still has info from 2017. Hopefully it happens, and hopefully the Valiant Panel isn't directly after it!

Starting to get a little excited for this ...

Wondering about the Valiant presence, though.

They wrote me back and said they are off for this year but will be back next year.

I was able to get badges for the first time this year but only for Thursday and Friday. I’ll be in town all week though.

Wonder if I should plan this trip out or just pack everything at the last minute?
