Set Your Alarm: PAX PlayStation.Blog Meet-up Details

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Aug 26, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

In just 3 days, the gaming hordes will descend upon Seattle for the 5th annual Penny Arcade Expo. This year’s event, like every PAX to date, will be larger than the one before it. So to survive among your 40,000+ fellow attendees during the 17-hour Saturday, you’re going to need… caffeine and sugar.

Top Pot Doughnuts

That’s where we come in, dear PlayStation.Blog reader. From 8:30-10:30am on Saturday, August 30th, we’ll be camped out at the nearby Top Pot Doughnuts (5th Ave location). We’ve got the 2nd floor of this Seattle standard locked down for PlayStation fans, and the coffee and donuts will be flowing freely. That’s meant both figuratively and literally – we’re picking up the tab. As those who attended our last meet-up can attest, there’ll be more than just free food; we’ll be handing out swag and running another competition – so make sure to charge up your PSP.

We’d love to meet you, and we’ll still get you out the door and on your way for a full day of PAXness (the doors open at 10am). If you’d like to attend, please RSVP on our Facebook event page or, if you don’t have Facebook (for shame!), please feel free to drop us a line here.

And when you get to the Convention Center, make sure to drop by our booth, where you’ll be able to go hands-on with LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, SOCOM Confrontation, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, Resistance Retribution, SingStar, Buzz Quiz TV and more. Stay tuned, we’ll share our full schedule of events tomorrow on the Blog.

off-topic: omg !! your from Argentina ! Wow, I really LOVE Argentina in soccer, and I was a big fan of Claudio Lopez if you know him he was a really good soccer player, and ofcourse I dont have to mention the great Messi and the best Tevez and not to forget Crespo and Batistuta, Batistuta had some wonderful days !
have you ever watched a match for Argentina in a stadium?

Hay Jeff, is Sony every going to hold an Event in NYC? Digital Life is cancel this year, and it was the only way I use too get a chance to play some of the upcoming games. :(
Or better yet, can you guys put some of those demo on the PSN store?

I know PAX isn’t you guys event, but it would really be nice if you guys don’t hold all your Sony Events on the West cost. The people on the East cost need some love too you know

Amazing ,the Playstation Blog is a good way to know people :D

Batistuta is one of my favourite players, here is one of the most beloved ones, here really represent us , and Messi is the best player on the world.

Here Jeff is a soccer player too :D

I honestly can say I’ve never seen a more delicious picture of doughnuts than that one. It almost looks rendered with that brown background.

Jeff, I live in DC, please send me a doughnut hole.

*CORRECTION: I honestly can say I’ve never seen a picture of more delicious donuts than that one.

The picture itself is not delicious.

Tragic news my young disciples, tragic news indeed:

Your beloved Uncle Ed has herniated a disc in his back and won’t be able to make the drive down to the gathering.

I beseech at least one of you to take up the helm though. Bring along your Good Book, and bellow out at least one Psalm an hour. Continue this until security personnel provide you with further instructions.

And know that Touchy Ed is thinking about you, not matter how bad things get for you.
