I was thinking of going down to Katsucon this weekend, but then I was informed that they had moved back to Arlington & the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. My con ran exactly one year in that Hyatt Regency, and it was cramped & crowded at 2500 people. Katsucon allegedly runs about 3000-3500 these days, which will make the hotel a veritable Black Hole of Calcutta, unless they've significantly expanded the hotel in some fashion which I suspect is physically impossible. Add on top of that the area's dearth of cheapass hotels and Crystal City's status as a Logans-Run-esque modernist nightmare, and suddenly I'm not not too enthusiastic about the whole idea.

Eh, it's not as if my pocketbook couldn't stand a quiet weekend doing nothing at home...
