The Basics: After missing last year due to unexpected circumstances, I'm greatly looking forward to returning to ReaperCon. I'm also looking forward to the tradition sushi night gathering! So, here's the details, for those interested in going: What - Sushi dinner (yes, the restaurant has non-fish items for those that still want to come but don't care for sushi) When - 7:00pm 5:30pm, Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 Where - Masu Sushi & Saki, 721 Hebron Pkwy, #103, Lewisville, TX 75057 I've said this in the past, and I'll say it again here to make it perfectly clear: this is *not* an official ReaperCon event. You will get no Reaperbucks for it, there is no badge ribbon, no guests of honor, etc. It's just a bunch of regular attendees who share a common bond and like to do a little more socializing away from the convention one night of the event over some really good food. Yes, this conflicts with the banquet on Saturday night. If that doesn't work for you, sorry, but it is our traditional night because it is what works for the core group of attendees. If you love sushi, but can't make this night: I highly recommend Masu. For those that came in prior years, it is in the same location as Bonsai was, and still carries largely the same menu - including the beloved Heart Attack. The reviews for Masu are just as stellar as Bonsai's were, so I have no doubt you will enjoy a good meal there. If you are looking for someone to grab lunch with at Masu one day during the con, hit me up. I'll gladly have sushi more than once during the con. ;) Reservations: In the past, I've coordinated the group reservation, which was a big challenging to do while at the con, especially to get a final headcount to make sure they had enough table space for us together. So, I'm trying something a little different this year: I've made a reservation for the people that I can guarantee are coming, and that's it. Anyone that wants to join us will need to call the restaurant on their own at (972) 956-9009, and make their own reservation. However, when you call, please reference my name (Vincent Hendricks) and the "ReaperCon" reservation. This will let them know that you are part of the greater group, so that they can combine the headcount of all our reservations together to set up the proper amount of space for us. Getting there: So while the restaurant is not far from the hotels/convention site, we encourage ride sharing. I encourage you to use this thread to arrange rides prior to the con; once on-site, if you want to go but need a ride, or have a car and can give others a ride, please seek me out so that I can help connect the drivers and riders together as needed. We don't want anyone to miss out because they were left waiting for a ride at the convention site. Waste not, want not: A final thought; if you purchased a VIP ticket, please consider finding someone to give your meal ticket away to for that night. I'm sure there are probably some people that would love to go, but couldn't justify the extra cost. Be a mensch, and let someone else enjoy that meal that has already been bought and paid for. :) See you for sushi! ~v
