Thanks for input regarding this show... I looked into venues close to the hotels in Vancouver... including the Atrium near downtown, and they were smallish. The most logical was the Red Lion stage itself, but of course they are setting up Saturday's Opening all day and night Friday, so that stage is not available for a show.
I also learned that many of you are in Portland as it is, so I checked in with some Downtown PDX venues that made sense. I wanted something convenient to the many people in Portland. It turned The Someday Lounge was really interested. For those of you who haven't been there, the Someday Lounge is a great venue, my favorite in town for great music. They have a large screen for projections, and room to dance!
Long story short, I booked it there. So that's the exciting news, and not meant to discourage those of you in Vancouver who want to attend. If a few of you express interest, I'd be happy to help organize a ride share situation.
Here's the info, which I'll also put in a separate post:
Kumoricon Pre-Party, 2011

Please see my other post (soon) for more details.
* I know, this sucks. I wanted all ages but them's the rules. There's good news here as well though! Disko Warp, who hosted this party last year, is having one again party at Pop Culture, which Washougal_Otaku recommended. As far as I know it's all ages. So there's something for everyone this year!
