at least the main stairwell is usually unlocked top to bottom during the weekend--elevator to the top floor of the lodging rooms then walk up to the restaurant?

/sigh,

In my opinion this just seems incredibly out of the way.
(also..., I had no idea there was a restaurant at the top of the Hilton)

I think I may just keep my eyes open for pop-up Karaoke events and check those out.

i'm not sure you missed much; i think the restaurant has been open exactly once in all the times i've gone to DC.

I know that Sho'Nuff isn't particularly too cheery about it either.  They are not considered part of DragonCon and they are not paid by the Hilton, they have sponsors.  They are staying optimistic though.  Try and get the word out and hopefully it will work out.

No matter what, I'll be there, working on a couple of new songs now. Hope they have them.

That's awesome!  Thank you!  I really hope that people go regardless of where it is being set up.  It really is a lot of fun :)

Last year people were really partying it up and everyone was very supportive of all who went up.

I had no idea there was a restaurant up there either. But I LOVE French food.. will have to try it.

Also it is listed as upscale. Karaoke doesn't really lend to upscale IMO but... oh well.

Everything kinda changes for Dragoncon though.
