Does anybody have any further info on the "Monte Carlo" gaming room?  Will this be open for the entire night?  What sort of consoles/games will be available?  Are consoles needed (e.g. should I bring some games??)?

Also, what sort of concessions will be available? 

I'm just curious as this sounds like a great mini event, but I'm not sure about dancing the entire night.  Thanks!   ;D

Yeah, not the same place. This one's closer to the con hotel. >.< hopefully, everyone wont freeze to death since this one is in the summer.

I wish I could go, but I just started a new job and I have no way of getting out there. Have fun everyone.

It is downtown, but not at PSU.. it's the other side of the river.  Actually, it's only a few block south (and across the freeway) of this year's convention hotel.

Whoo! :3 I'm definitely heading to it. ^^ I'm bringing a friend along, too! I was contemplating wearing my maid dress from last kumoricon, but.. XD I'm not sure if it would work for something like this. So I'll just be dressed up in a skirt and corset top instead. :'3

P.S. Reno, beware. XD I plan on finding you for a hug sometime tonight, then.

OMG, that was awesome!! XDD I got glomped like, forty times. You guys are all so cool. ^^ Man, it was so much better than the Masquerade Ball (not that that wasn't fun too, I had a blast!); just the music was a lot more fun, and the glomp circle... and the gaming room was a great idea!! Not that I played any, but watching was fun. ^^ Especially with the Scandinavian Urahara dealing Blackjack. That was epic. ^^

I was really really late - I came at about 9:30, and there was a huge glomp circle. I was kinda weirded out because I'm not all that into glomp circles, and I was going for the swing dancing. But after the awards people were dancing again (mostly) and all was good. I got to meet some new people. ^__^

All in all, I had a good time.  :D

Ahaha, the look on your face was pretty funny, now that I think about it. You definitely looked like you'd been caught doing something you weren't suppose to.
Your dad didn't look too happy, either.
The nice thing about my mother, is that she would NEVER drive into Portland to pick me up from anything, she hasn't been to Portland in years. She'd tell me to find a ride home, or I wasn't going.
But that's before I one day suddenly became 'responsible'.

LoL, he wasn't too unhappy with me cuz it wasn't my fault that I was taking so long to get out there, the printer wasn't working for the picture I bought TT_TT she said she would e-mail it to me though.  But he was tired and on the way home he was a bit cranky because he was tired... lol I was just scared I was in trouble, and embarrassed that my dad was here and made me look like such a kid aaaagh

The only person I'm scared of really, is my Aunt.
I obey her, because she holds more authority then my mother does over me, regardless of my age.
Thankfully, I only see her twice a year. XD

-grins and puts a hand on her hip- Now we all had a blast, we have to have a repeat of that night. -grins and smirks- ... In fact we should even get together sometime in August before Con and have some fun as well. -winks- You all agree right?

We all agree that last night was a freaking blast. Anyone get any pictures of me?
