    The 2018 Washington Area Travelers Advisory Thread

    One more thing, The BLUE ORANGE SILVER line will be CLOSED between Farragut West & Metro Center on Aug 11 & 12, and Aug 25 & 26 for important track work there to address that sharp turn. There will be single tracking between the McPherson Square & Smithsonian stations weekdays from Aug 13-24.

    Here's an important advice concerning Metro. The Rhode Island Ave & Brookland stations on the RED line will be closed thru Labor Day for major track work! There will be FREE shuttle buses between Fort Totten and Galludet, but do expect delays on the RED line if you're coming to/from Silver Spring or Gaithersburg. The GREEN & YELLOW section of the Fort Totten station is not affected. MORE INFORMATION
  3. They should be back again for 2018. Hopefully something will go up in the coming days on the website or in the Video Gaming subforum of this BBS.

    The 2018 Otakon Goer Roll-Call Thread

    As we near the 25th Otakon, it's only appropriate I check in as well. NAME: Dorie HOMETOWN: Glen Burnie, MD # OF OTAKONS ATTENDED: fifteen in succession, this will be sixteen. BONUS: Many great moments over the years, but two dub premieres stick out, which kinda connects guest-wise to this Otakon. The first is the Sgt. Frog DUB premiere in that awesome 16th Otakon (2009). That made me love Todd Haberkorn, even before he became better known as Fairy Tail's Natsu. The other was a three Otakons later, with the Madoka Magica DUB premiere. I didn't get to watch the last episodes they ran for that due to an Industry panel overlapping near the end of the screening, but it blew my mind & redefined what I thought about my favored magical girl genre (for the better, yes.).

    Look out Otakon goers (well, anyone in general), It's going to cost you more $ to use the likes of Uber, Lyft, etc., as the DC Coouncil passes a 6% tax on ridesharing services. Report from NEWS4

    The 2018 Washington Area Travelers Advisory Thread

    Ey! Let's really get back on topic! Those commuting from the Baltimore area now have another way to track their buses & trains with the Transit app. In addition to the improved "text [bus stop ID] to MTAMD", The MTA partnered with the app to help commuters not miss their connections. >DETAILS< There's also another round of bus changes, some of which do affect some key lines. >LIST OF CHANGES< Speaking of connections, some important changes to the buses in Western Anne Arundel County. The route of the Metrobus B30 (BWI Marshall Airport/Greenbelt Sta.) has been amended, and now serves Arundel Mills! Note this this bus still operates on weekdays ONLY, and costs $7.50 a trip. Metro have also made changes to several of its bus routes. >THEIR BUS CHANGES< The RTA meanwhile is reducing service, ceding operations of the 202/K (Odenton MARC/Arundel Mills) to the county, who will operate it as the AA-202. Times and route may be different if you use that one. Also, the 501/Silver (Columbia/BWI Marshall Airport) will be shortened to Columbia/Arundel Mills, because the county has a brand new bus called the County Connector. This FREE shuttle bus connects the airport & MARC/Amtrak station with Arundel Mills. >ROUTE & SCHEDULE< And as always, be aware of weekend track work on the Metro trains in & around the DMV. More updates on this thread as the convention nears. Oooooop, I apperantly missed one more thing. Those riding the MARC train will notice some NEW ticket machines at most locations. These machines are capable of accepting alternative pay options. Here are >MORE INFORMATION< about what these are all about.

    'White Civil Rights Rally' application approved for DC

    The same report says they don't have a permit yet, and I hope they don't either. That said, the park is on the north side of the White House, and it could lead to disruptions yes. I don't think they're going to allow it though.

    Back again with another report, which could affect driving prospects for 2019. Plans are to raise the TOLLS on the 267 (The Dulles TOLL Road), which would help pay for the metro SILVER line! Report from WTOP Radio

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    That was a massive guest announce yesterday, and interesting that Cherami Leigh is being brought over courtesy Aniplex and not Funimation. Wonder what that entails regarding the former's Otakon plans. Now if you hons can finally get Colleen Clickenbeard over, that would ice the cake.

    Any lolita panels or events planned for 2018?

    This is a rosy thing to hear. I look forward to see what you hons have in the garden for 2018!
  12. Welcome hons to the Roll-Call Thread! It's a tradition of mine to offer this for all the Otakon goers that will grace the convention floor. This being the 25th Otakon, I thought something fine was needed. So with that, here are this year's parameters: NAME: HOMETOWN: # of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): I think that's fine enough. Be good until then, and we'll meet again in August.

    Here is an important notice for you commuters. MdTA will soon begin the transition to all-electronic TOLL collection (ETC) at its facilities. These should be operational come summer of next year. ARTICLE

    Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I dont think I had the chance to say "wow" yet, so "woooowwwwww!" I agree that not everyone likes the concerts they are offering for 2018, but it's still a major deal and I actually have some interest in learning more about these guys (I listen to classical & orchestral music on occasion). Meanwhile, I'm hoping these new VISA requirements isn't going to mean less foreign guests. I like it when there's a good balance between foreign & domestic, though it seems like one of my requests won't be fulfilled in 2018 (not complaining too much). All that said, I'm going to file a late guest request: If you can track down any former Industry heads from this side of the Pacific, I feel that could give Otakon goers a great perspective of just how far the business of anime has changed over just 25 years.
  15. Oooo, that May 1 date is also good to know, just in case. Thanks.
