In all seriousness, that was the most fun Iíve had since Zapcon.  A very, very undeserved warm welcome from Phoenix collectors and I hope to see everyone again in April 2020.  Starfighter is an incredible arcade.

Those guys in AZ are the real deal.

I am heading west in December to wreck Arroyo's birthday.

I am extending my trip so I can spend one night in Phoenix to hang out with Yots, TTC, and company.

Make sure you bring the hand lotion. The circle can get kind of intense!!

PBJ needs to lose some weight.

Also, plan is to hit up Cobra Bar at 4ish this afternoon.

And now Iím safely back in Houston after one hell of a trip to Phoenix.

A few highlghts....



Outdoor arcade games at Cobra Bar.



Member Jawyn



Never say no to bar tamales.  Ever.  At the Film Bar.



Custom side art at Cobra.



The three Elviraís at Starfighter. 



The Witching Hour at Crescent Ballroom.  Actually a good turnout and I think I finally got enough dark wave in one evening.



Met a wizard on the train to the airport, he told me heís the last member of the kingdom of Israel.  So heís got that going for him, which is nice.

Thanks, Phoenix, it was fun.

What a trip!! Pbj was giving me the play-by-play, probably to make me jealous. Which he succeeded! I really wish I could have made it out to AZ and join in on this.
Nice trip, pbj!  :cheers:

This is what the hobby is supposed to be about. People getting out and living life. You goblins huddled around your soldering irons and PC screens need to get your ass to Zapcon, or the MGC, or my place. I hear Opt will let anyone crash at his place uninvited as long as you bring your zipper mask.
