Guest List of Awesome

We're a little more than two weeks away from this year's RT Philly, where we Aspire to Endeavor, so I figured it be a good time to formally announce all of our guests and presenters.

HOSTS

Our wonderful host, Roadblock

This year none other than Jon “Roadblock” Serna will host RT Philly. Roadblock was a huge help during RT26, and part of the Latenight JengaJam Team. We're happy that he is leaving the Land of Tornadoes for a weekend and joining us in the City of Brotherly Love. It's his job to keep you entertained between presenters, so if you're not entertained, blame him, not us.

Jengaship, Roadblock's ever-faithful sidekick

Now we realize that the hosting gig is a big undertaking, and that it helps to have a local on the team, so this year Jack "Jengaship" Edathil will be assisting Roadblock. Don't let that fool you; Roadblock is the star, no matter what Jack says. Jack is Philly born and bred and your go to guy for any Philly related questions. Except for "Where should I get a cheesesteak from?" Jack will answer "Steve's." But we all know he is wrong and that the true answer is Tony Luke's.

 

 

 

SPECIAL GUESTS

Barbara's plan is to break your legs, then run away as the Zombies go all Om Nom on your brains.

We're pleased to announce that we have three special guests this year. First up we have Ms. Barbara Dunkensnacks Dunkelman. Barb used to be like us, fan, attendee, community event organizer, but now she has ascended to RT Community Manager. You may think, "Wow, that's awesome, she's amazing!" While that is true, deep down she just like us so don't let her title go to your head.

Don't be fooled, that's not beer in his glass. That's the blood of a dead achievement.

Next up we have Jack Pattillo from Achievement Hunter. Jack equals one half of the adults who are a part of Achievement Hunter team. When he's not babysitting the rest of the crew he likes to go on safari where he tracks down and kills big game achievements. He is the reason why achievements are on the endangered species list. Pretty soon it will be a crime to hunt them. Also, BEARD.

Jesse, and his number one fan, inflatable monkey.

 

Lastly, and certainly not least, we have Jesse "Jeskid" Cowell. Jesse is a filmmaker known for Shades of Grey, Drawn By Pain, and most recently Status Kill. On top of all that he works for MyDamn Channel, producing some of the funniest videos on the interbutts intertubes interweb internet. Unbeknownst to some, Jesse is an accomplished martial artist, and he likes to kick people in the head. So you've been warned.

Flying into PHL

So if you're flying into PHL, theres a quick and easy way to get downtown from the airport and that my friends is by train. A cab could cost about $30-40, but the train will only cost you about $10 per person. Here what you do, take the airport line heading towards center city. Get off at Suburban station, and the hotel is about 7 blocks away. You can either hoof it (about 13min) or catch a cab if you have a lot of luggage (which will be a lot cheaper then from the airport)
