I will be in the same boat next year. This is my official announcement I will be at Anthrocon next year. So why not this year, a couple of reasons.
Well anyway I know from personal experience heading to a new con can be a bit overwhelming for some. I can’t tell you the number I have helped at MFF over the years. But strangely enough when I asked for info about Anthrocon. Except for the most basic information I have gotten almost nothing useful…. Until I checked out their site everything that you need to know. A Map of nearby restaurants, even a guide how far they are from the convention center.
On A Personal Note: I rather go to the actual restaurant rather than use an app. I don’t know how many of you know this but apps up the price of food. I know because I once worked at a restaurant and began checking all the apps. Some items were as much as $3 above menu listed prices. Contacting the restaurant directly is also a good option for delivery… but be sure you tip the driver. Despite what some say, they may not get a tip via online or app,
Did you know Anthrocon hired Shuttle Buses to and from various hotels. Running from 8AM to 3AM the following day. Check there site to see if your hotel is listed.
The one I was thinking about staying was in fact listed
All I can add is enjoy the con, just relax and have fun. The one thing I can say is you will never know what you might run into at a con. That can be pure fun.
