We were able to make it to the Peter David gathering. I knew about the change of venue because I'd been following nottenst's updates both here and on Facebook, but someone helpfully slipped a note under our door to inform us. (My wife stuck a weeping angel and a yellow smile token as a beacon)
The gathering was quite nice. Peter David was an enthralling raconteur, as one might expect, and very warm and accessible. He had a bunch of interesting stories about his comics days. If you didn't know who he was, you would very much think he was a fan who just wanted to watch Black Panther and hang out with other fans.
That has less information than other articles I've seen about it, but I guess no one really knows what happened and I'm not going to repeat the multiple rumors I've heard. I'm finding myself glad that I couldn't figure out a way to go and thus didn't buy a ticket to the event. I've heard a lot of people have had trouble getting their money back, most seem to have resorted to trying to get their bank credit card payments reversed.
