Well, I dunno if you noticed, i'm not that interesting of a chap, but I like learning about people that I don't know...find out some of them actually like that too. So i'm sitting here, midnight, thinking, if I used my room to open up a bit of a "freebie" tea...bar. Would anyone actually stop by, relax, have a chat? I used to do this at my old school, and I got some pretty good reaction.

So, should I open up a free tea bar (donations and tips welcome!) Who knows, I could bring my cot and throw in massages.


Reason is, I like meeting new people, ACEN is a bit of a hectic, do everything at the same time, kinda place, so I figured a break would be nice.


What do you people think? ANy comments? Any...suggestions? Any flavors?

Reason why I'm doing this, besides talking. I'm only a little bit of an anime nerd. More a video game nerd, but I don't think I qualify as fanboy...except for no more heroes. Last year, I barely did anything, just walked around for hours on end. I was gonna gofer for a bit this year, but I'd rather learn about people.
Hello. Pleased to meet you. That's it.

Good luck, the key is gonna be making sure people know where it is. Because if you just open your door at the Hyatt and put a sign outside I think people may be hesitant to come in and you may waste away your con inside waiting for people.

hehe, thanks for filling me up with confidence!

Nah, I don't think i'll waste it. time is actually very hard to waste by good friend. As long as you enjoy a single atom of a time, it is not wasted. I suppose I'll do the tea thing an hour or two a day. Close up shop, check out the con.

Plus, it seems a couple people show interest in it. I gotta admit, it's for those people I'm doin it for, and you people know who you are, you lovable scamps you!

I think you misunderstand. I think its a good idea, my point was that you need to advertise it around the con or no one is gonna randomly find it and walk in.

I don't really like tea all that much, but I'd so go for a freee massage! I'd even tip you like a dollar! *oohhhs and ahhhs* Although as of now, I'm not sure if I'll be at Acen or not.

hehe, my apologies then! My mistake

Oh i dunno, I think i'll just place some posts all around the forums. I don't think I can put up signs at the hyatt because of a rule. But i'll think of something hopefully! I guess you guys could help and spread the word!


Any suggestions for tea flavors?

Aww, this is a nice idea. You're right - ACen is a run around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to do everything at once convention. Unfortunately for me, I HAVE to be busy (running a panel, photoshooting, meeting up with friends I promised to make time for, etc.), but this will be nice for people that don't have a schedule. ^_^ If I go to a small convention where not much is going on, I'd think about setting up something like this. I do love tea!

I like tea! Are you bring a hotwater thingaroo? You know what I mean doncha?!

Also, ummm... yeah fining the room would be kind of a problem. For some reason talking about going to some random persons room in the forums sounds safe and fun, but when people randomly invite us to room parties at the con we are always frightened and cynical.

Hmm, sounds interesting.
I don't think tea bar = tea party, but the mental imagery of various cosplayers in a single room drinking tea makes me giggle.
As long as you have good green tea, I'm there.

And it's an electric water kettle Kaz - boils water in about a minute.
It's sooo nice to have.
