I had an morning short shift and by the time I was off, I had already missed the only thing that I had planned up to that point: the World Cosplay Federation, which both G and Kevin teased me for missing later on.
As I arrived back at the Sacramento Convention Center at the same parking garage, I was very lucky to catch a parking all the way at the 10th floor with one of the few spaces that were remaining.
Since I haven't done a convention walkthrough since the Raddison/Woodlake Hotel era, I pulled out my camcorder and started filming.

As with last year's SacAnime Summer, you had free admission to the Greek Festival which I can guess 90% of us went just for the food. And by food, I mean Gyros and Saganaki.

I wanted to get Subway for dinner but the line was packed for the evening, so instead I went a block over to Tony's Deli for a Ceasar salad. Unfortunately chicken was sold out and I wish I had more salad dressing, but it was nice to not eat junk food from 7-Eleven.

The gaming room had a special setup that was converted from pre-registration for the entire MK8 tournament as well as the finalies of KI, Marvel, and Street Fighter. This was a good option for those who were into the FGC and want a taste of being in a "major" as well as those who usually don't attend the Masquerade or the "Dance."
I started off good as Toad but quickly choked my lead away and before I knew it, I was in a race-off to see who would advance. To be fair, I should of advanced because I won a race but it was more fun to give the crowd what they want although in the end I lost and quickly found my night ending early here.

The night after this point seemed like a repeat of last night except for some minor details. But still, it's nice to hang out with people that you know and just met especially as a majority of people see this convention as the end of the summer convention season; soon, most will be going back to work grinding out for next year or going back to school.
