  • Sushicon 4.0

    Information regarding Sushicon 4.0 will be posted roughly three weeks before the event occurs. From past experience, I have found that this format works well (ie. restaurant tends not to "lose the reservation", closer contact with restaurant managers about doing seperate checks, etc.)

    As of now the only information to report is the date -- Wednesday, August 1st at the Sushi Factory on Tropicana.

    Slainte,

    I regret that I will be unable to join you this year. My schedule prevents me from arriving in LV until Thursday.

          OK, ok I'll give - not the best all u can eat sushi in Vegas, but tolerable. My attendance depends on the Black Hat party, sorry.

            Since this is quickly turning into a signup thread, I'll offer up that I plan on making an appearance this year.

                I'm in... Though, do we HAVE to go back to the sushi factory?

                  I got a few peeps interested in coming along this year, how much does it usually run (cost) for per participant?

                    i would say figure on $40 to $50 per person, unless you drink a lot at mealtime... those Sapporos and Kirins and sakes can rack up fast if you're not paying attention.

DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                      Agreed. IIRC, $25 for all u can eat sushi plus what beer you drink.

                        Re: Sushicon 4.0

                        Yeah, but do we HAVE to have it at Sushi Factory?
                        1.) Every year, they freak out when we all show up
                        2.) Every year service is slow
                        3.) Every year orders get screwed up
                        4.) Every year they freak out when it's time for the bill (though, last year I just paid and had everyone settle up with me later to make it easier, NOT that I plan to do that again this year )

                          I think they did a fine job last year. I called multiple times that day in advance, and they had the tables all set up and the first round of sushi shortly followed. Two years ago splitting of checks was an issue, but last I had called numerous times, they agreed -- then when they said they couldn't I talked to the manager who verified who I was and there were no problems after that.

                          I'm not against having the event at a different location, so if you know of a different place that will be able to accommodate us let me know ASAP so I can begin changing the event logistics.

                              I plan on attending as well as one other person.
                              What time are we looking at?
