Anime Boston
April 22-24, 2011
Hynes Convention Center - Boston, MA

"The convention center? Take a right after the cell phone kiosk; it's right across from Au Bon Pain."

Anime Boston— one of the largest cons in the U.S., with over 17,000 attendees last year —takes place at the Hynes Convention Center, which is attached to a shopping mall. It's a little surreal sometimes: you might see Princess Zelda eyeing handbags in front of the Coach store, a gothic lolita in line at the Dunkin' Donuts, or families posing with an anime character as though they're at Disneyland. It's chaotic, but convenient: hotels, restaurants of all shapes/sizes/prices, and emergency cosplay supplies without even having to leave the great indoors? Perfect for a weekend of rain (Saturday) and wind (Sunday).
