This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Default ConBravo 2012

http://conbravo.com/

Being a native Michigander within walking distance of Canada, I'm not sure how this con has eluded my attention for two years. This cross-the-border convention in Ontario will be the weekend of July 27-29th.

Pre-registration is $25 and is open until July 1st.

My brother and I are possibly going but nothing is set in stone at the moment. If it's just the two of us, we'll probably stay in some shitty backwater motel and get our sustenance by sucking the moisture out of the drywall (how ironic) but if we can get another couple of people together, we'll probably shell out the extra cash to stay in the main hotel.

Forgot to mention that with the new border restrictions, it is absolutely REQUIRED for American attendees to have a passport. If you don't already have one, you need to apply for one NOW just to have it in time for the con.

I live in Canada so fuck passports lol
I will be staying at one of the nicer hotels in the city because I have a job...though I might cheap out for a motel...since hotels often don't have kitchens of any kind in there 1-2 bed rooms
so really, what am I paying for? (at anime north I guess it was location)
i just found out about this today, making me want to keep my job and having something for me to reach for, savings wise

Yes if you're into gaming in particular they got guests coming from Spoony to the Angry Video Game Nerd. The weekend event mixes cosplay with gaming from board and cards games to video games and even larping and outdoor games. There are unique shows from the Live Mario Party to comedy acts. It's in the hotel and the GO train/bus station is not far from it. Hope to see many there!

My brother and I are confirmed for ConBravo. If you are interested in sharing a room, let me know. Ideally, we can fit in two more people. I do not yet have an estimate on how much it will cost as I am still shopping around for better hotel rates and who knows what gas will cost in a month and a half.

We have a hotel room at the nearby Comfort Inn a mile down the road of the convention center. We have decided on the shitty inn option for the sake of $$$ over the convenience and comfort (how ironic) of the convention center hotel. Since we are driving, the trip to and from the convention center will be quite painless and, given the option, WALKING. Woot! No bullshit parking shenanigans!

Again, if anyone wants to chip in on our hotel room, we can offer it for a MUCH lower price than the main hotel.... though you might have to sleep on the floor. Sorry.
