  1. Do you really think anyone is going to come around and police if you’re wearing a mask in your hotel room? Being in a hotel room really is not considered being in public so no, nobody is going to enforce you wearing a mask in a hotel room.

  3. Alright! This is the last Where to Eat for Otakon for 2021! Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to make it even for one day, but I hope the rest of you have a GREAT time!

  4. As someone who has stayed at the MM every year, I'll add to the chorus of "no microwave". But you could do a lot worse than greek yogurt and granola (which is what I am likely to do). A little cup of Chobani is 110 calories, but has 12 grams of protein (25% of your daily requirement). I live on that stuff in hotels.

  5. I don't know how you feel about plain coffee, but they do have a coffeemaker in the room, along with a couple of teabags (English Breakfast and... Chamomile?). You can always hit the Safeway and grab some bagels there. I usually end up bringing a box of cereal and getting the milk at the store. (Though yogurt and granola for breakfast does sound good. 🙂 ) Speaking of Safeway, as of 2019 if you entered the phone number 202-867-5309 (yes, the number from the song Jenny) at the register you should be able to get the club card discount. (I read an article years ago about that, and entering t

  6. I was lucky enough to get the MM twice in DC, but they didn't have a microwave in the room in either year. (The Hampton Inn did in 2018, IIRC.) You can always ask if they can supply one, though I don't know where they would put it if I'm remembering the room configuration correctly.

  8. I’ve been parking at Shady Grove and riding in on the metro for years. No driving in the city and no obnoxious parking fees. I travel alone and don’t have cosplays so I can make that happen.

  10. To get inexpensive food and drinks from a place that's open 24/7, a 7-Eleven opened in 2020 that's a very short walking distance from the convention center, I created a thread about it: 7-Eleven has opened what seems to be the future of US 7-Eleven stores in Washington D.C. that's open 24/7 and is within close walking distance from the Mount Vernon Place entrance of the convention center.

  11. My group is still going. We're young and healthy and statistically the least at risk. If we have to deal with wearing stupid masks for the weekend then so be it. Otakon is trying to find a happy medium and I can understand why since they're the first big con to get back up and running again. I just hope enough attendees come to keep Otakon in the black for years to come.

  12. My go to (Vapiano's) is gone T_T so that's gonna sting a bit. But let me recommend Arepa Zone. Its incredibly good and about a 10 minute walk from the con.

  13. From a merchandising standpoint, I'd buy an Otakon-branded facemask/neck gaiter in a heartbeat.
