Gamicon 2011

Over the weekend, Britt and I visited friends in Iowa City and attended Gamicon, a local gaming convention. The convention was sort of incidental as we mostly went to visit with our friends. I like to think that a fun time was had by all.

It was actually kind of weird being back in Iowa City again. Britt and I both went to the University of Iowa and that is actually where we first met. We didn’t really get to tour the city but just from our brief forays out for food, the place seemed both changed and the same.

The students, of course, were much the same: indifferent to the weather, traffic, or anything else that anyone else might consider harmful to them.

There seemed to be a lot more upscale and weird businesses than I remember from our time there. For example, we went to a restaurant that served only crepes. They were quite tasty crepes but it still seemed to be an odd business model. The restaurant seemed to be doing okay, so I suppose it was working for them.

As I said, though, these are really only superficial observations. We didn’t get to see too much of the place.
