Curt Con 2013

Postby Tsunami3k » Thu Jan 24, 2013 4:38 pm

Just got wind of a new incoming shipment of goodies from Japan. This is a pretty slow time of the year for Curt so, if we're able to get something going on fairly short notice, he's available for most weekends in February save the weekend of the 16th. So who all's up for a road trip!?

Getting our hands on the swag before Naka, eh?

I nominate the 23rd or 24th for a practical reason - slightly better chance of dodging bad weather - and a selfish one - that's after my February pay day. Plus that gives Scott and Ben an entire month's warning to tell their families and employers to take a hike.

The 23rd is pretty optimal since it gives us a little bit more time to organize, all of his shipments should be in and, like Matt mentioned, February weather is volatile and our odds of smooth sailing are better towards the end of the month. It's my birthday weekend so leaving the 24th open would be the most ideal. The following weekend begins his con season so it'll start getting picked over from then on.

So far it looks like Wei, Matt and me and I highly suspect (once he becomes aware of the event) Bri will round out the first car. So do we make this a caravan?!

Totally in. 23rd sounds good.

It'll be nice to get that one CCS poster that I... uh... Curt is holding for me.

If my count is correct then we have 6 people which puts us at a mini-caravan of 2 cars. Being a wizard of math (if not speed and time), I estimate a total passenger/driver capacity of 8 people. By the pigeonhole principle, that leaves room for at least 2 more people. So come on everyone! Hang with the cool kids! If you've not experienced Curt's store then you're in for a real treat. I couldn't wish for more otaku-bliss on anyone. (Yes, I consider Asylum Anime the crown jewel of Kansas...don't judge!) Please come so, at the very least, you can gift me with the [probably delusional] notion that I am a well-rounded individual because there are more than a few people who are comparatively zealous anime fans.

Yeah, it really is a great place. I think the last time I went it was like offseason so there wasn't as much new stuff, but he has some classic stuff. I found a Nuku Nuku figure there :lol:

True that. Or a nice long period of time for me to break away from work to get time to look at the message board. I'm in for the 23rd, sounds like a blast!

Glad you could make it Ben! You're kind of a traditional fixture on these expeditions anyway.

So, just a reminder to everyone, it's T-8 days. It's not too late for people to join in. Otaku bliss is at your fingertips. Just sayin'!

Allright peeps. I say we gather at 9:30 on Saturday and take off by 10. We can tweak the schedule a bit of anyone wants to get together for breakfast which I'm more than open to. If my mental tally is right we'll be taking two cars leaving on last free spot left so it's not too late for someone to hop onto the caravan and partake in the sweet, sweet Asylum Anime goodness!

Sounds like a plan! As we spoke about last time, it might be a good idea to change eating locations. Here's a list of a few I see on the main drag, in addition to most all fast-food chains. We can probably decide once we meet in the morning, though.

Lotus - Chinese
El Charo - Mexican
Chili's
Applebee's
Kyoto - Chinese restaurant turned Japanese, apparently
Jim's Steak House
Bob's Grill
Various cafes and grills past where you turn to the warehouse, one of which has a review of "Lazy service and stupidity amongst management staff are sure to please all"

If we are eating after we go to Curt's it may be McDonalds value menu

:oops:

I suppose technically we will have "dodged" the worst of it, but be reminded, that warehouse is apt to be cold.

Well, the snowpocolypse is here. Which is more fitting driving music in this weather?
