@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

They apparently did it for "shock value", despite it not being particularly shocking or having value.

Wow, way to spoil it for people.

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

I figured this could be of some help to a lot people. This year, the convention center the con is in is right next store to a giant, seven story mall. This gives people a lot of food options.

First up, is the Food Court, located on level 3.
Ben & Jerry's
Cathay Cathay
Dale & Thomas Popcorn
Gourmet India
Japan Cafe
Johnny Rockets
Le Petit Bistro
Pizzeria Regina
Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits
Subway
Surf & Turf
Taco Bell

If sit down eating is more your style, there are options there as well.
Cafe Nordstrom
Chatters
Dave & Buster's
Fire + Ice
Joe's American Bar & Grill
Johnny Rockets
Napa Valley Grille
Nordstrom EBar
The Cheesecake Factory
Uno Chicago Grill


The mall it self is huge, and you can find out information on it from their own web site and via wikipedia.

http://www.providenc...tml/index10.asp

http://en.wikipedia....ence_Place_Mall

The nice thing about this is convience, though if you want to eat at a local place, you can probally manage that a few blocks from the area too.

Yeah, I definitely need to make a date with some fresh seafood while we're in RI. Maybe a softshell crab sandwich would be nice. icon-arcee.gif

It'll be good to have a lot of places to eat close by, too. When there wasn't anywhere to eat in 2004, I just went most of the weekend without eating. 2006 wasn't too bad, since the convention center had a decent food court and some local places in easy walking distance.

Incidentally, I just noticed the other night that "Cheapside", the bar and grill where a big group of us ate in Lexington in 2006, is featured in a commercial about advertising for small businesses. Anyone else see that?

There are lots of places in Providence to eat, heck, there are a ton in the mall's general area.
I plan on scoping out the best locations before I go. I have to head to Mike's Junk Yard Dogs at least once!
