Any Bricksetters going to Bricks by the Bay?

MeganLMeganL California, USAMember Posts: 73
Following SprinkleOtter's lead (but with a different event), I'm attending Bricks by the Bay next week for the first time as a registered attendee.  I'll be there Thursday, Friday and likely some of Saturday.  I'd love to meet other Bricksetters if any of you are attending!

    You'll enjoy it. Good times. Bring money for the loose Lego and hope you can stay late!

    I liked the exhibit hall.  I remember one exhibitor had a star trek transporter effect going on in his display...pretty cool how he made the mini figures "energize".   But if I remember right, the voting boxes were not out early so you couldn't  place your vote for best exhibit early on.

    A funny story, I do some close up magic ...so when I went in as an vip, the girl gave me my 1-sided printed brick, but I showed her it was totally unprinted, she gave me another...and again, I showed her an unprinted brick on both sides.  The girl was looking at it, and looking at it, then finally gave me a third one.  I then showed her that that one now had printing on both sides, so I gave it back to her...she was still looking at it as I walked in...even the security guard at the front was trying to figure out what just happened.

    @Russell844 - excellent, I will see you there!  I'm guessing I'll be the only MeganL there with a Brickset brick. :-)
