Therefore, you'll literally see way more people in the greater Philly area declare they are going and then don't make it for a number of (valid) reasons. I'm sure that happened this year too.
We had our first club meeting last night since Philly 2013 was introduced and it's obvious that the whole club is giddy excited about it. We pub-crawl Philly quite a bit so it would be really odd to not see at least half of them there. Of course, the full conference pass is probably twice as much as what you'd spend on a crawl. Add in a weekend of hotel and food and it's still an expensive weekend for most. So far, airfare has been 30% or less of the whole NHC cost.

We'll be tossing the bars on the trailers and going down in a caravan (long line of trucks, not the minivan).

Should be interesting even though it is a long way off.

I'm thinking there may be something pig related coming out of the SSBC booth. (South Shore Brew Club)

then you'd need the

"I got Sopered" Shirts

"Sopered In Seattle" -- "I'll have what he's having shirts."

"A wild Soper appears" "uses beer" " Is super-effective" meme based shirts.

I'll donate my share of profits to charity of course...

I've gone to 2008, 2010, and I'll go 2012. It'd be nice if it would be closer to me, like in Chicago, sometime. An expensive plane ticket along with the hotel, and of course the cost of the conference itself has been prohibitive for me. It's about a $1200 weekend, and I go alone. That's tough.
Love to see you in Seattle Yoop. You've got a year to scare up a fellow female brew partner to share a room with. That should cut down on the cost a bit. I'd offer up our spare bedroom, but we live like 20 miles away and with all the alcohol that just isn't going to be practical. We've already decided we're staying at the convention center.

By the way all, the actual location is in Bellevue WA, which is a high tech/financial based city just across the lake from Seattle.

pub crawling will be tough, unless there is an organized bus or a Designated Driver to haul the soon-to-be-sopered HBT members around.

I know that an HBT party at Naked City is Imperative.

Absolutely. Maybe Don will make up something special for the occasion...

Heh, I think I only drank about 2 pints/day of beer but that's because I drank about 3 pints/day of mead.
