The BIG PAX East 2015 Party List: Your guide to events, parties, and more!

pax-east-2015-party-listWooooo baby! It’s that time of year again when we hike up our britches and head on over to Boston for some fine, fine PAX time with our friends! Though there are a bajillion conferences now, we still love getting together as often as possible. You should know the drill by now: we post a list, you go to the events. Simple! Done! Bingo!

We’ve done a little housekeeping this year, cleaning up the Facebook Group (JOIN!) and tidying up some of the posts.

We’re JUST getting rolling, but we’ll be updating this list fast and furious, so keep checking back OFTEN! If you know of a party or event the post it in the comments below, contact us, post in the Facebook group or tweet us at @SideQuesting or me directly @DaliDimovski. As usual, the wonderful Bryanna will be coordinating the list on the Facebook page (follow her on Twitter @glittervelocity!) and this year we have the amazing Becky helping out as well! Find her awesomeness on Twitter @omglazerkittens. In fact, Becky already has the amazing list up in the Facebook group. So quick!

Anyhoo, while we get this page going we’re list out the events below as quick as we can and update them with flyers, maps, etc. Is there anything you’d like to see us do differently this year? Feel free to let us know! We’re always looking to get this into your eyeballs as easy as possible!

Party on, Wayne!
