Messing with salsa is a capital offense in Texas.

But, seriously, bro.  Youíre making the out of towners nervous.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

ZapCon VII Roll Call - May 4-5, 2019
« Reply #488 on: April 30, 2019, 11:15:27 pm »
OK peeps, here is the official BYOAC itinerary for this upcoming weekend:

Thursday Night:

5:30ish - Dinner at the Monastery, followed by Mike Aís Arizona ZapCon Rockiní Eve Bash at StarFighters. Meet at the Convention Center at 5-ish, we can depart from there. Weíll need drivers, if you have a car.

Friday Night:
6:00 - Dinner at Pizza Mart (Pizza, beer, and bideo gamez) followed by Contributor Night at ZapCon. The evening is specifically set aside for people who were in games, but Iíve got special permission by the ZapCon organizers to let you in as my guest so you do have to be sporting the Adventure Dragon medallion to get in. If you donít have it, you will be asked to leave. Iím distributing pictures of Jim specifically so they know who to ask.  Contributor night ends at 11.

Saturday:
Group photo at 2 oíclock. Around six-ish, there may or may not be a trip to get some tacos. Look for the people wearing the ZapCon Siete shirt for more info.

Sunday:
Youíre still here? GTFO.

If anybody wants to help unload games, youíre more than welcome to come see Casa de Yotsuya. You can earn a special badge that way.

Aww man, Iím sad Iím going to miss Mike Aís Rockiní Bash! I donít get into Phoenix till later, and probably be in Mesa by the time you all are done at Starfighters. Love that place. Maybe this year theyíll have their Lunar Lander working...

Sorry to miss the Monestary/Starfighters outing, but I'll be there in plenty of time for Friday's Pizza joint jaunt. Much better than ballsa!

Notes for ZapCon Virgins:

1. Wear comfortable shoes. Youíll be standing a lot.
2. Get your shirt early, that way you can guarantee your size.
3. If you want a cool souvenir, check out Moroís Glass booth. He does custom etched pint glasses for the show. Tell him Yotsuya sent you. His website is http://motosglass.com. Get those early, too, as some of his designs sell out early.
4. Best times to play stuff is to get there early or stay late. Donít be a dick and add 4 credits to a pinball machine when someone is waiting.
5. The food trucks are great, but if you get hungry, there is a bar across the street on the right side of the hall. It gets busy, but the food is decent and itís a good place to unwind.
6. Be there prompt for the photo. We donít want anyone to get left out.
7. Make sure you meet TacoTownCharlie. Heís a first ballot BYOAC Hall of Famer, for sure.
8. Wear cargo shorts. Yeah, theyíre old fat dude/WNBA fan uniform at this point, but theyíre handy for swag and loot.
9. Make sure you wear your Adventure Dragon throughout the weekend so people can identify you as a BYOACer.
10. No facepunching.
11. Take and post photos in this thread. Still trying to get DaOldMan, Lew, WP34, Jennifer, and Howard out here one day and want them to see the fun.

Looking forward to tomorrow!

I'll have the Trans Am for rides.  Keep in mind, the back seat is smaller then you remember.  Also, I need suggestions for the red courtesy cooler.  In this year of our Lord 2019 it seems like Budweiser is a radical choice.

If anyone needs a ride to/from the airport I'm available.  Just reply here or by PM.  I'm off work Thursday through next Monday so I can manage any flight time.

That would be awesome.  Mike A lands at 9.30,  so I guess around 10?  Best ZaPCon Eva.  Thanks TTC.

Keep sending suggestions, I need to build my ZapCon playlist.  BTW, I saw a Zune at Bookman's the other day; I may have to go back and see what size it is.  They had it marked at $70.

I've been told to check out Four Peaks.  How's that cider collaboration?  Uber's like $20 to haul me from the airport to the dork den, so I'll probably do that.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Don't stop beleeeeeving.   Did you know Ond can sing?  Fact.
You know that every time someone sings that at karaoke, a puppy dies? But if you do it half as well as everything else, I've still gotta hear it!
