BootyCon 2007 Was Last Weekend, And It Was Amazing

One of the questions we've always heard at OtakuBooty is, "When are you throwing a convention? You're big enough now!"

We certainly are. But running a convention was never my goal. BootyCon ThePirateCon 2K7, which took place on May 18th, 19th, and 20th, was the weekend our community stepped up and made this amazing event happen. I helped out but I mostly stayed out of the way as MVPs like Professor Bullgod, trabus, sparkledonkey, mommyskullfish, Dia, and Team Banzai made this happen.

The result was the most amazing weekend most of us have ever seen. Three days of fun on a hotel in Virginia Beach, with hotel rooms that opened up right onto the beach, and the best people I've ever met. We had good drinks, good food, a panel, music, a beard contest, an Ultimate Frisbee game, an Assassins game, a beard contest, a Saturday night luau, and even a friendly (hostile?) takeover mid-con by ThePirate.

This is what OtakuBooty is about! You probably didn't hear about this convention because it was a members-only affair. If you've ever thought about joining OtakuBooty, well, this is what we do. You're not joining a huge faceless corporate site like eHarmony or LavaLife; you're joining a close-knit community run by friends, for friends. I love it with all of my heart. Maybe OtakuBooty is for you, too.
