Who is looking forward to going to MB Park next year for ACen 2013? For those who don't know what it is check the link at the bottom of my post. It's something that just opened this year and its like a entertainment area by Muvico. To me it seems like a good place to go on Thursday night before the convention and maybe during to get a couple drinks and hang out. I'll definitely check it out next year.

I will be there. Bowling alley wasn't open during ACen this year so I plan on spending some time there.

We went there last year for dinner on Thursday night. It is a bit of a walk from the convention(you go through the parking garage to get there), but worth it. We went to the Five Roses Pub. Prices were what you'd expect for that area, and the food and service was excellent.

Looking at Five Roses the beer list is really sad, and the menu is not even remotely Irish. I might have to stop at Park Tavern which has a good beer list other then having a light beer on tap.

I'm looking forward to this place. I hear they've got the classic beer hall setup (picnic bench style like in Harry Potter movies). If that's true, then this Hofbrau could be sweet. I picture myself as one of the rowdy hooligans clashing beer steins whilst singing tavern songs.

That was pretty much the way it was when I went to the Cincinnati area one a month ago. Some ladies standing on the benches, some dancing, having a good ole time.

For me its all about the 64 ounce Margarita at Adobe Gilas. If you finish it you get to keep the mug! They stay open until 4:00 am. And here's a tip. They have happy hour there mondays-fridays from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm they have tacos for $1.50. No matter what place you choose, all these businesses are gonna get big $$$ from us on thursday-sunday!

I really wanted to go Thursday, but I have to work Friday and won't be able to come to the con until evening. Can't afford to be hung over for work on Friday.
But I really want to go Friday night. Is anybody going Friday night to party/get together?
