I spent the weekend at the Ohio Anime & Gaming Convention in Cincinnati. It was, indeed, a rich kaleidoscope of the nerdly, disturbed and socially awkward. My kids had a blast. This was Kreidler's first con.
We get in free to these things because I provide AV equipment.
This was also our first con where we stayed in a hotel. We mostly go to ones in Akron and Cleveland. The kids finally got to stay up late, doing god-knows-what.
