Things are going great! There is a great vibe coming from everyone here, the vendors, the people, the perfomers, everyone. I had azuki mochi with some friends of mine, we met lots of great people, saw the oni-chasing ceremony, and quite a bit more. Most memorably I saw a few bands perform, and spent the whole day in the company of friends.

I met some people I had only known until recently online, and we all had a grand adventure throughout Phoenix.

Later on, we went to Venezia’s Pizza to attempt the 24″ 2-man challenge. Oisihii.
