As a native yinzer (yinz = y'all / yinzer = pittsburgher), I'm obligated to be a good neighbor.

Whoa!  What the??  I had no idea about any of that, that's really neat.  TIL.  :)

I'm definitely in for Pittsburgh. Is there a carpool thread that usually gets started for these?

I'm in the Maryland/DC/Baltimore area, and I'm down for driving a carpool if we can get a group of people together.

We've had successful carpools happen for previous events. I'd suggest showing some interest in here as things progress to see if anybody would be interested in joining. There are plenty of people from that area, so I bet you can harangue some into a road trip!

Agreed! Just thinking for a successful separate topic to occasionally check in with the main thread to keep newcomers aware of it. :)

This is so true! ;) Awhile back I had a traveling job & people were always asking me where I was from because of my accent, my Pittsburghese isn't even that heavy too! The funniest is when I was down south & asked someone for a pop or milkshake, they had no ideal what I was talking about! :))

Honestly, the week of is fine. But the sooner the better so we have an idea if we're approaching the max attendance at the venue. I'm pretty confident we'll be more than fine though.

I'm new to KeyCon this year - is there any fee to get in? I live a few hours away and it seems like a fun thing to do.

It looked a little expensive when I saw the rates but I'm still trying to stay there. The hotel looks really cool

Making this keycon a whole weekend trip with me and my sisters! They can know more about the hobby I've spent so much money and time on for the last 3-4 years! RSVP'ed just now! Definitely will try to see about staying at the Ace Hotel as well but may have to go the airbnb route or something depending on how much it ends up costing. I'm sure it'll work out lol
