    I hear some really good buzz about the influence of ColumbUS200 on this years event. I have some big ideas that I hope to execute this year. Stoked top watch it all develop!!

    Hooray, Highball news! Any word on the costume themes yet? My group and I are anxiously awaiting the categories.

    Will be much easier to find parking and I really like that it is on a Saturday. Sunday was a bad evening to have it.

    Highball has always fallen on a Friday or Saturday.

    I hope they announce the theme and costume contests soon. So many people start working on their costumes in September and earlier! :)

    Whoa, I was just checking out the location on Google maps and I’m pretty bummed out. One of the things I love to do at the Highball is go in and out of bars to warm up. There is almost nothing along this stretch of Convention Center. Seriously, guys, this is the best event Columbus has all year. Why try and kill it? The VERY few bars along this stretch are going to be capacity-packed all night and I don’t see people staying with the event all night.

    The Arena District and stand up places like Barley’s are a stones throw.

    Yeah, I don’t see much of a problem in that location. Previously locations have always had 3-5 bars located “inside” the Highball area and a dozen more within a block or two outside it.

    That seems to be the same for this year’s location as well.

    Why on Earth would you want to go into a bar during Highball?
    Spiked hot cider, y’all!

    Hilton website says they are taking reservations for Nov. 17th and beyond. I think they have too much to do for an Oct. 17th opening. Either way….Highball is going to be cool down that way.

    It’s definitely mid-October. They’re starting strong with group business.

    Because I have absolutely no tolerance for cold and my costume is never practical. Someday I’ll decide to be something round and furry. Yeah, I love the spiked cider, but it’s not warm enough.

    That just means you need more cider

    My favorite Highball memory thus far is sitting in a bar by the window, sipping a cocktail and watching the madness pass by.

    The Hilton Hotel will be open as well, so anyone who wants to party and crash in a hotel room won’t have far to stumble. ;)

    Are you sure about this? I tried to get a room and was told that
    This hotel is presently accepting reservations for arrival October 28, 2012 and beyond. Which is the day after Highball :(
