Sabaku Meet-Up, Summer Kick-Off

May 6, 2016 at 2:36 pm

When: Saturday, May 7 | 4pm~6pm

Where: Sabaku Con (Marriott Pyramid North, Main Lobby)

It’s rare that an anime convention in Albuquerque dovetails with the last weeks of the semester. But that’s how it worked out this time around. Our last gathering before we take a break from anime club for the summer will be at Sabaku Con tomorrow. Same Anime Club time, but different Anime Club channel.

We’ll be meeting outside the convention badge zone in the hotel lobby, so if you don’t want to shell out for a badge, you can still hang out and people-watch with your fellow clubbers for a little… But we recommend paying the admission and supporting anime in Albuquerque!

DagashiKashiLogoWhen: Saturday, March 26th | 4:00p – 7:00p

Dagashi: free (for members)

Here’s hoping everyone had a good break! We’re kicking off the second half of the semester with a snacks-flavored meeting!

We’ll be watching Dagashi Kashi, famous for its thirsty main characters (I think), and sampling some of the dagashi featured in the show! So if you ever saw an anime character’s reaction to food and thought, ‘I’d like to try some of that’ then you should come by… ‘cuz we ordered these non-perishable goodies straight from Japan! We’ll be snacking and sharing until we run out of snacks; speaking of, you guys are welcome to bring some of your own to pass around!

We’ve also got a few conventions coming up that we’re looking to participate in: Timber-Con and Sabaku-Con. So during this Saturday’s meeting we’ll be brainstorming ideas and recruiting volunteers to help. All are welcome to join!
