OMG they don't allow the sale of pocky? Are these people on CRACK?! GEez the ACEN masquerade seemed to have a theme = advertise pocky. @_@ Why would they not let Katsucon sell it? Thats dumb. I say you guys go on strike outside the convention center. LOL!!

Jibrille

well, it seems to be the rumor as to where they are going to have it...so i am going to pray it doesnt happen.
considering they got KICKED OUT PERMANENTLY from the hotel they are in.(there was graffiti or something and they hate us now)
and like OTAKON, if its in the Convention Center, there wont be any pocky. my two biggest cons... if neither of them have pocky i might die...

Yes, yes... The reason they could not sell Pocky...
The Baltimore Convention Center has an exclusive contract with Aramark, that only they may sell food. So, unless Aramark decides to sell Pocky, nobody can sell Pocky... ^_^;
At least they have sushi... though... $8... not worth it -_-

I wonder if it's illegal to bring large amounts of Pocky and sell it OUTSIDE the convention center . . . *evil grin* hmm, well, I'll remember to pack plenty of Pocky, anyway.

Isn't Katsucon going to be held in Arlington VA this year? (next year? you know.. the next Katsu) Or am I just making it all up? ^^;

I was EXTREMELY cranky that there was no Pocky to be had anywhere. ~>( I had to run off that overpriced Starbucks stuff. Although it did kick in nicely later in the evening.. mwehehe..

::nods:: Don't worry I was just temporarily retarded, but I'm fine now. Anyway, yeah.... but the people in Baltimore were real @*&%&#@)%#*&%(#^(*#^!##%$! Ohya... and they sucked too.

Security guards all like DON'T STAND THERE, OR THERE, OR ANYWHERE IN THIS BUILDING 'CUZ IT'S A FIRE HAZARD!

actually to think back, I wasent' yelled at this year at all besides the hotel, but thats a totaly different thread all together. Guess I was being good this year. But yeah they were a little more strick with there rules.

ME-MANIA-Sama
08-06-2002, 03:22 PM
LOL, well it's the truth, they sucked at that hotel, and yeah... there was that wedding at the hyatt this year at otakon, now THAT was fun, people staring at me odd 'cuz I'm half naked and have a bright green wig on!

Oshi
08-06-2002, 06:54 PM
Oh... so it's not gonna be in Baltimore... hm, now I'm having second thoughts about going... it's another hour drive or so to Arlington, I think... oh well, I got plenty of time to decide.

Jibrille
08-06-2002, 07:25 PM
yes, its nice that its not in the stinky baltmore hotel anymore, but more driving sucks...
geez... all cons anymore are in virginia.... my next 3 cons are all down there... ><

As awful as Baltimore is, moving Katsucon back to Virginia might make it impossible for me to go. And I had sooo much fun last year... what a shame. Bah to the organizers for moving it further from PA. :P

Am I the only one who is happy about the move? They are making Katsucon ultra-local again! (Well, for ME)

Three years ago, I actually commuted to Katsucon via the metro in my Zoisite costume. That was fun and CHEAP. ^___^ Although most of the costumes I wear /now/ would probably scare commuters...

Neon Genocide
08-07-2002, 08:33 AM
its more fun that way to scare people. I like the looks from the people outside of the anime convention. Its kinda cool to see them make a double take.

ME-MANIA-Sama
08-07-2002, 11:23 AM
I bared my Gau fangs at people who looked at me strangely in that shopping center foody court by the convention center. I was just like BAH ::fangs lil children:: hehehe... I kept flashing my fangs at this little girl that kept starring at me, and when her parrents stared my mouth was shut, it was so much fun!

So I guess that answers your question, Yes I am that Gau! ::says like Vash dub "Yes I am that Man!"::

08-07-2002, 05:04 PM
Okay....on the Katsu site it said it would be held in Arlington, VA, yet it says the hotel is Hyatt (or whatever chain) Crystal City. Is this the same place? ::is from way up north::

Ayaka
08-07-2002, 06:16 PM
Yeah, I'm kinda confused about the location as well . . . I don't know where either place is. oO I DO know where VA is, lol . . .

ME-MANIA-Sama
08-07-2002, 06:19 PM
LMAO, well... who knows.... I'm just going to Katsucon no matter what... I'll cross all over VA... 'cuz it's a LOT more organized and easy to find people and still have fun even if it is in a small lil hotel area.

Nyoko
08-08-2002, 12:22 AM
Ditto.... its also closer for me that way.... and maby there be pocky.... beacuse there was at katsu 7... well anyway ME-MANIA-Sama if you go next katsu look for me! k? I am going as Kenshin.... I just came to a relisation, I cosplay as guys ALOT......

Neon Genocide
08-08-2002, 07:04 AM
yeah pocky would be nice, now I just need to talk my roommates into driving me down to it. They usualy go to otakon with me but I don't know if they want to go to anymore conventions.

08-08-2002, 01:55 PM
Well, Katsucon -is- being held in VA (as I'm told it should be), which means that there may be Pocky to be had. However, if there is not, myself and a few other members of the Shensin Gumi (death by silly string since 2002) shall be selling pocky ourselves to attempt to relieve some of the potential drought. Attendees who are part of the LARP will assuredly run into us, as we are running the affair this (next, whatever) year (although no LARP information is available at this time).

Hai, usually with Katsu being held in Arlington, it means loads of pocky. Baltimore is retarded for such dumb rules. Trust me, I've lived in Baltimore for 19 years. ^^; They'll come up with all sorts of stupid things to keep money rolling in. As for Katsucon last year, I didn't get to go, but from what I kept hearing, I'm glad. Is it true that were times where there was absolutely nothing happening? And I heard the security guards were little snots too. The sad part about it is that people thing otakus are going to blow the place up or something when in all reality, the people I meet at anime conventions are nicer than the people I've known for years. So yeah, just random babbling while I get ready to leave from work. :D Yatta for Katsu being in Arlington! @_@ ::goes to make reservations::

Dulles Internation Aiport or the Ronald Regan/National Aiport at the two closest airports.

If you want the address to Dulles, you might be able to find it here (http://www.metwashairports.com/Dulles/). As for the other one, I'm not sure. ^^; I looked on google (http://www.google.com) for the other one.

Hope those help and good luck!

THERE WAS POCKY AT OTAKON BECAUSE I GOT A BOX!!! ::suddenly goes silent:: I appologize... that was completely random.

::ahem:: pardon me for the shouting. I am dead serious I got a hold of Pocky, but it was in the most unusual place. A friend and I dropped her little sisters off at Ota-chan, which is a place to drop off annoying chibis instead of dropping them off at the gate of Hell for Satan to deal with.

Anyways, I noticed that there were a couple of boxes of pocky sitting on a table, so I asked one of the people working at the station to hand me a box of Pocky... and they did! It was good... but it wasn't made in Japan.

Hmmm... looks like a lot of people are crazed about it. Maybe I should buy a couple of boxes at the Asian Markets in Rockville (the nearest one is a half an hour away from my house anyway) and hand some off to random people at Katsucon. ... or sell them. That sounds good... and I wish I got my paycheck today to buy more...:drink:

Pocky was available at the mall food court right across from Otakon at the sushi place. Still, it's not the same! Ooh, Katsucon, wasn't Yu Watase there last year?

Nyoko
08-14-2002, 03:15 PM
I wish I had known this at that time!!!! AHHH I NEED POCKY....Well I can go for a 1/2 hour drive to Globle Food and get a few boxes....And bring a few to Katsu...

Treacherous_B
08-14-2002, 07:50 PM
Hmm...other people bringing Pocky is bad for business.

I regret to inform you that you must all be silenced. I am hiring Ninja to take care of this immediately...

My friend said there was a guy at Otakon dressed as a box of Pocky, with a big stick of it (fake I guess? He didn't say) to beat people off when they started drooling and coming closer . . . wonder if they peace tied his giant stick of Pocky . . .

Chocolate mushrooms and other assorted goods being sold, eh? Hmm...

Well, I'm sure we'll have our fair share of Pocky business. And, even is we make less than desired at Katsucon, there's always Otakon, where money for Pocky will flow like water.

Heh...

So Pocky is included in the bribe now... (makes not to work overtime in the food securing department)
So that's fudge, a large quantity of Pocky, two gallons of chicken and rice, two boxes of granola bars, thirty bottles of water, two cases of soda, and a few packages of Yan Yan. O.o Well, I'm taking requests, and my prices are very reasonable (how much better can you get than a full meal for a Chibi pin?)... so start making requests *cracks knuckles*

I've been reading a bit of this thread, and thought...

You guys do know that it'd be almost definitely illegal to sell pocky in ANY manner without a vendor's license (inside, outside, anywhere).
