    by the sounds of it, you have the makings of your own event even if the "official" one sort-of does not happen. all it takes is a post in Community Talk from you saying "hey, who still wants to fill themselves with fish?" and you'd have your own little following that you could direct anywhere.

    heh, you'd be like Bender in The Birdbot of IceCatraz

    what little insider info i have on this dictates that yes, it is still happening... so i wouldn't move it to "canceled" at this time, for what my word is worth.

    we've seen a slow but steady march in recent years towards GM1 diminishing the lead time on the SushiCon announcement, in order to make some attempt at ensuring that it's more of just the "core" forum community that knows about it and attends, as opposed to casual one-time forum browsers who poke around here just because DEFCON has been appearing in the news.

    i would suspect that some word will come down soon, so folk should keep fingers crossed just a little longer. if there was a room for it at the Riv, then i'd totally be all about the take-out idea like we did at ShmooCon. sadly, since it's soooo pre-DEFCON at that time, most spots would not be available to us and half the people are still likely to be at the Caesar's on Wed. night.

    i'll be attending, but as always i won't make a really late night of it since i have to get up wicked early for the Shoot the following morning. sereyna, if there's a spot or two in your car... i might ask if i can stake a claim there.

    EDIT: heh, HighWiz and i had post-collision. his idea isn't a bad one, either... maybe just a temporary move there, hah.

    I'll sen GM1 a PM with the same question.
    The reason it's not discussed much before Con and GM1 usually only posts a week or so before for crowd control and to keep down the number of people who show up. So it may not be a horrible idea for you to say it's "canceled".

    Shmooshicon is ShmooCon specific.. SushiCon is what they are looking for, and that's still on.

    Contact GM1 (GodMinusOne) for details.

    I'm game, as is my sister. We'll both be in on Wednesday, and I'll definitely have a car this time. The take-out thing didn't work too badly at Shmoocon, though.

    Re: Sushicon

    As for Sushicon @ Defcon, last year I did wait repeatedly as my order somehow was bumped down the list. and then after 20 minutes when it did arrive it was delivered to someone else. I didnt get as much sushi as I had planned because of the long waits.

    I had no problems the previous year, and I think the other 2-3 people with me the last 2 years have been pretty happy with how things went. The bill at the end is always a massive mess though. I never order, beers, sake, ect.. so my bill is usually just the buffet only & a drink. So its easy to get a total..

    I think the mass confusion in paying the bill comes from the beers and stuff that are per item charges. Not sure how that could be fixed.

    The drive over to the location is always a small issue, but we have managed to Taxi it 2 years, and Taxi back 1 year, hitch a ride the other..

    Seeing as where you're posting (defcon forums), wouldn't that be more along the lines of 'Revenge of the Nerds' in the moon room? ;)

    I would say get ready and have diner early because plans are in the works for something interesting to happen on the Friday night. Look for updates from ShmooCon Central and HacDC.org
