    Question: I noticed that hotel rates are really high in that area of the city. Does this have something to do with the Steelers game happening that Sunday?

    I mean, I can't find a hotel for less than $300 a night there now. And most of them are booked solid at this point.

    Why didn't this get a response? Seems like there's gotta be a reason...

    The convention center made some changes that made it too expensive.

    Thanks Zach - looking forward to it!

    Question: do you expect a lot of vendors will be set up on Thursday? I need to find myself a Mox Pearl before Vintage . . .

    Hard to say for sure, but I would imagine most would be.

    Pittsburgh in general is a really expensive hotel city. Even booking early and shopping around it was 200 thurs, 170 friday, and 370!! for Saturday. It was like this for GP Pitt last time I went as well, I think it's just the city all the time.

    I found it more cost efficient to find a hotel about 25 minutes away from the convention center. To me, the 25 minutes isn't a big deal at all, and the difference between $75 a night and $200 a night is massive. $225 vs $600 is/was totally worth it, IMO.

    I liked it so much better when it was in Philly and I could just drive in each day from where I live (an hour away from Philadelphia).

    :-/

    And when it was in Philly we had the Reading Terminal Market! I doubt there's anything that good food-wise in Pittsburgh...

    Pittsburgh is like NYC if you removed all the trash, people, and soul.

    The Strip District is just a few steps away from the convention center, though whether or not you'd consider that to be better than the Reading Market is up in the air. There's certainly less "pick up and run" food there. Unfortunately, most of our great restaurants are going to be an Uber away rather than a walk away.

    Patience, Vintage is already there.

    Btw. Vintage seems in a really bad position, with 5x Ravager Shops and 3x Oath in the Top 8.

    Edit: Seems like Top 8 starts at 9 AM EDT (3 PM in Europe) on Sunday.
