Oh, it's in 'Sliberty' around from the Whole Foods. I have a friend that lives near there. Not a lot of on-street parking, I'm afraid.

I think they have a couple nearby lots you can park in?   I'll see what I can find out.

Pittsburgh isn't that far away, maybe I should make the drive... Is it a pretty good show?

You definitely should, because it looks like I will be attending!

We'll have to see now. I went to feel it out with the wife and it turns out that it is "Maple Weekend" up here. Whatever that means...

Hey guys! I'm involved with the convention, so I thought I could step in and give you a little info on the parking situation.

There are two lots available for free parking. The library lot next door, and the Beatty lot behind the back of the building.

Street parking is available throughout the area, paid and unpaid. For the paid parking, you can use the Go Mobile PGH app and receive notifications directly to your phone when parking has expired and you need to renew, with one click parking renewal. A link to the app can be found here: http://www.gomobilepittsburgh.com... if you have any other questions about it!

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

If I can find my Captain Morgan shirt I'll wear it; I'll be the table with a shitload of Disney Infinity figures.

On google maps, it looks like there are 2 parking lots behind the building on Beatty St., where it meets Mignonette.

If I attend I'll be wearing a black KHAN Games tee. I can't find anyone to go with though!
