Meet up with us in LA at E3 2008

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jul 11, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

So, apparently E3 is no longer a circus. No booth babes, no craziness. It’s for VIPs, not gamers. Media and industry types only, thankyouverymuch.

Forget all that.

King Taco

PlayStation.Blog is hosting a meet-up for all of our readers, fanboys (and Fanboys), fellow bloggers, and anyone else interested in PlayStation at the King Taco on Pico, down the street from the LA Convention Center, where all the E3 action happens. Bring your PSP.

Want to talk about that morning’s PlayStation Press Conference? Want to slam some free aguas frescas? Want to see if you’re taller than me? (hint: you’re not)

Then, we’d love to see you. Don’t forget to bring your PSP. If you’re in the area and can make it here are the details:

When: July 15, 5-7:30pm PST
Where: King Taco
Address: 2020 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca 90006

For more info and to RSVP, just visit our Facebook page, or send a note to playstationblog.comments@gmail.com. Space is limited, so RSVP’ing is strongly encouraged. I’d rather not irk Chief Freeman.

Looking forward to seeing you all there, and digging in to some tasty al pastor tacos.

Oh, and have I mentioned, you should bring your PSP!

I live in L.A. but I won’t go to this huge nerd orgy. The people you’ll see here are the same people I saw when I attended the E for All show last October, those being the most antisocial video game males.

I’ll not be there, too far away.

Belfast is quite a bit away from LA, so everyone play Wipeout Ad-Hoc and kick back.

Order many tacos.

That’s pretty cool. I like these events, too bad that I live on the other side of the ocean LOL.
By the way if this event is on the 17th it’s two days after the Sony press conference, so you guys are pretty confident that people will be happy about what you’re showing there :D, think you did such an event after you announced the PS3 launch price two years ago :P
