I'm going to TARcon next Tuesday!
I've been avidly watching the Amazing Race since season 5, and have followed the Television Without Pity boards and forums without ever posting (sort of like Live Journal).
Every season, TWOP holds "TARcon" right here in Manhattan, where a few hundred people watch the season finale at a restaurant/bar at Madison Square Garden. Racers from current and past seasons show up at the party after their CBS function. Though it sounds a little drunken for my tastes (open bar), I thought it would be neat to be there.
Someone posted that he/she had an extra VIP ticket (for dinner, which got sold out a few weeks ago), and after having a DREAM that I went to the party, I decided to E-mail and see if it was still available. It is, and we're making the arrangements now!
Other than Sars (Passerina's daughter, who was a college student when I met her at the 1993 con), I probably won't know a soul, but people on the boards say that doesn't matter.
