    "By saying a LAN party I was expecting to see some kind of gaming meeting. I did not expect to see a full of nerds gathering but it seems it is the largest computer party. The English part of the website is somehow not informative though."

    "This might look a little pricey, but it's totally worth it. You haven't played games until you've been to a huge LAN like this, and doing things online is never the same afterwards. Plus, PDXLAN manages to inject just enough of that "keep Portland weird" charm that makes Portland such a cool place. "

    "I met my soulmate at the TLP Innova event last year. Even though it wasn't a cosplay event, she was dressed as BB-8 from Star Wars, which suited her 300lbs of luscious flesh well. We bounded over a massive tray of cheesy nachos, and the rest, as they say, is history. Well, until she died of a heart attack 3 months later, which is why I can't wait to see who I'll meet at Tenerife this year!"
