  1. Well, PAX East was on the first week of June (like AnimeNEXT was on the second week of June), so I'm surprised that it took this long to announce it's cancellation of their live con.

Otakon announced their 2020 cancellation somewhere on the last week of April last year, so I'm kind of hoping it will happen. I already made a train reservation for the date (Amtrak had a great deal that just expired last Friday), so here's hoping.

Have "Arcade-style" controllers in the Video Game room that can be wiped down with disinfectant after every use.

  5. I'm hoping that America gets better at vaccinating more people per day so that it's safe to go to Otakon in August. I wonder if they could push it back to Sept or Oct?
