D*C Stuff and Karaoke.
« on: July 18, 2018, 12:57:51 PM »
Hai all!

I have a feeling that this year will be my last for a long while for D*C.  It makes me very sad but coming in from Canada it is getting to be way too expensive for me.

Anyhoo....

My friend at Sho'Nuff Karaoke will let me know shortly about what is going to happen this year.  Being upstairs at the Hilton really kinda sucked, but they didn't have a choice.  I am not sure where it will be this time but I will keep you posted if you are interested.

I'm sorry to hear that Canuckianchick.

I think a lot of us are feeling like this recently.  The cost of DragonCon in general has been exploding in recent years.   Primarilty hotel costs. Even those off site.
As recently as 2012, I remember when you could score the Westin on hotwire for $65.
I once thought I was an immortal Goa'uld, but as it turned out I'm just a confused mortal.

Hopefully *fingers crossed* that I can attend in the future.  I miss those days when we were at par with the US $.  Those were good days ;)

I should have info soon on Karaoke soon, I texted them today about it.

Karaoke will be held at Nikolai's Roof Restaurant - the same as last year.
Friday-Sunday nights

The reason why it was switched to the restaurant was because Sho"nuff isn't a DragonCon event, they are an independent event and therefore were moved there as to not take away from D*C events that are planned.  From what I was told, they are going to try and do something with the elevator to ease the flow for people to get there.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will pass it on to them.

That great and terrible news!  Excited it's back, but that restaurant was not as cool as the old venue!

What is everyone going to sing when there!?
