So excited that I will be making the 996.4 mile trek to attend this year's Portland Retro Gaming Expo. I have never been to this event and I'm so excited that I'll be there this year! I can't wait to go!

Who else is going?

Cool.  You're going to love it.  I want for the first time two years ago and now I make the effort to go every year.  Having said that, I will be there this year.  :)

I live in Portland -- let me know if you have any questions about the area or the show.

I know for sure we'll be going to this place where they serve these amazing looking biscuits. It looks so good I want to try them!

Pine State Biscuits, I assume. Very good choice.

The missus and I will also be attending PRGE for the first time. I've attended CGE in the past and of course until 2 years ago had been hosting my own much smaller con here in Oklahoma for 12 years.

 

We will be arriving on Thursday and staying through the weekend. I believe we are in a hotel just a block from the event so we aren't planning to get a rental car or anything. Hopefully we don't have a real need for one.

You definitely do not need a car.  The light rail will take you from the airport to your hotel.  And that same light rail will take you over the river into downtown Portland if you want to explore that.  I think that's plenty...but if you end up wanting to see more, uber and lyft are both prevalent here.  In the area of your hotel, I highly recommend "Little Big Burger", "Frank's Noodle House", and "Cafe Yumm".  Great food that isn't too spendy. 

With all of us Atari.io folks coming, we should try to get together at least on the show floor or something.  Get a good group photo and say hello.

The light rail works perfectly.  You can make it to the airport and the convention center area easily and then walk to the hotel.  It's cheap also! 

 

We should try getting together!  I agree.  :)

Justin, do you have any advertising swag for Atari.IO that we could give out at PRGE and HAAG that weekend to help promote the site????

I don't right now. Maybe after the site upgrade when it will be easier for people to join.

Cool.  Let's shoot for Friday afternoon if possible.  I'll take a look at the schedule to see what's going on.  For now, I plan on taking the day off of work on Friday.

I land around 2 pm, if there are no delays.  I'll grab the train to downtown.
