As per Con tradition, we slept in on Sunday. Not because of wild parties on Saturday night, but because we were a bit tired, and we could, and there wasn’t anything scheduled on our agenda.Today’s surprise on the Press Room menu was a nice TexMex chili. We haven’t noticed many Mexican or Latino restaurants in the city (although paprika is a common spice in the local cuisine), so we’re formulating a business plan. Me, I suggested we get the Taco Bell and Chipolte franchises for the common market, and then create nicer restaurants for the connoisseurs. I think the casual dining market is also underserved. Perhaps the locals prefer the independent restaurants which cost about the same.
Today was spent with more wandering around, and making sure I didn’t overlook anything. Our “Jamie Olsen” will have more and better photos soon. Until then, enjoy my cellphone photos. (Just pretend you’re reading these on Facebook…)
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
