PAX East 2014: Pre-PAX Charity Bar Crawl

Do you like fun, games and drinking? The Thread Podcast is once again hosting a bar crawl for PAX East’ers. This year’s Crawl will held on Thursday, April 10th.  We’re bringing the party closer to the convention center and hitting Boston’s Seaport area.

Last year we gave away video game downloads, collectibles, and one lucky attendee walked away with a BioShock Infinite Skyhook Replica before the game was even released.

The only way to find out what we’re giving away this year is to attend.

The Schedule

The Charity

The guys from The Thread will be collecting donations that night for Childs Play charity! Be sure to bring your generosity along with your Crawling shoes!
