This is the second reason I’m bringing lots of snacks to Otakon this year. First reason is that when it’s late and you’re inside the convention center you need to surrender an arm and/or a leg to get a snack. They must get their supplies from a store that already marks their stuff up a lot.

I don’t remember if in previous years I ever found any places open that late in Baltimore. I’m pretty certain there wasn’t anything open to even get a bottle of water. Maybe I’ll discover one this year. Pretty much being in any other city makes you appreciate the things you take for granted living in New York.
