You can count me in as well. But can we go to a place OTHER than red lobster?

I'm in! As for food places, Yelp/Google searches lead me to believe one of these may be good:

- Tiger Fork (#6 on https://dc.eater.com/maps/restaurants-n ... -center-dc)
- Farmers and Distillers (https://www.yelp.com/biz/farmers-and-di ... ion+Center) -> I'm a big fan of this chain. Always super good.
- Busboys & Poets (https://www.yelp.com/biz/busboys-and-po ... ion+Center), or
- City Tap House (https://www.yelp.com/biz/city-tap-house ... ion+Center)

Thoughts? Asian BBQ at Tiger Fork sounds good to me

Now that our video is officially loaded, I can confirm that I'll be coming to this dinner as well.

If you need help looking for restaurants, Otakon has recently posted a map of places near the convention center:

If it were any other year, I'd try to get a group to get dim sum on Sunday morning at that one place on the map... but this year we have to really hoof it back to New Jersey on Sunday. We may not even get to stop at the Double T Diner like we always do. :cry:

If it's around 7:30 I think I can make it. Might be a little late. I'm from DC but I don't really hang around the convention area much so I don't have a lot of recommendations, but our Chinatown is a 10 minute walk (straight shot) from the convention center (or one metro stop) and there are a ton of good restaurants. I would recommend Clyde's if we end up in that area there.

There are also:
http://clydes.com/gallery-place - as I mentioned but here is their site
http://www.daikaya.com/ - Ramen spot. Never been here and not sure of how big it is, but it's highly rated
http://www.matchboxrestaurants.com/ - Pizza place
https://pingpongdimsum.us/ - Dim sum place which is okay but I've had better. Might get complicated splitting a large check.
http://us.vapiano.com/en/magazine/ - ordered from here for work once and we got pizzas. Was pretty good.

I've never been to the other places mentioned aside from Busboys and Poets (which I did like). Either way, a lot of options.
