A Yuricon Outing in NYC

January 16th, 2010

No news today, because we’re going to be out having some fun – and you’re welcome to join us!

I plan on dragging my suburban ass into to New York City for a day of otaku-ing hardcore. Anyone who wants to join me is welcome to do so.

12PM – Meet Kinokuniya on 6th Ave/Bryant Park. We’ll be shopping *without* squeeing with our outside voices.

After that, we’ll wander over to Book-off, for our used manga, j-pop and other random media fix.

Then we’re going to ride the subway downtown to 9th street where depending on the size of the crowd, we’ll find a nice Japanese restaurant or a dive, if you all embarrass me. :-)

And for the piece de resistance, we’re going to show up at Drom, 85 Avenue A Between 5 & 6th at 4:30PM for a performance of Promise, a home-grown J-pop idol group that is composed of Friend of Yuri Leanne F. and her sisters. (You may remember them as the excruciatingly adorable Maria-sama ga Miteru cosplayers from Otakon a few years ago.) They’ve launched themselves as a j-pop idol group “Promise” and have been performing as the opening act for Akihabara moe idol Reni, who is working NYC these days. Reni will also be performing, but I don’t care. I’ll be there for Promise. This show has a $10 cover charge.

There’s no RSVP necessary, just nab my attention at Kino at noon. If you don’t know me, look for Sean – he’s the tall guy in the hat. Trust me, you’ll find us no problem. We’ll be hovering in the vicinity of the cafe.

If you do come, try and bring a sign that says “I heart Promise!!!!!!!” or something equally girly, so we’re all on board with the uber-cute ness there. :-)

I hope to see you there, and we’ll be back with the news next week!
