It's my birthday.
In celebration of 34 years and not dead yet, I am making my husband take me downtown where I can go to a bar where Top Gun was filmed. No, I'm not fucking joking.
Happy birthday, Suu!
By the way, Tucson Comic Con offered me a hotel room. It looks shady as fuck, and I can't wait. I'm copping out of Long Beach, because they want me to buy a $400 insurance policy a month out from the con, and I'm calling shenanigans. I'll eat the $300 table fee, because no fucking con is worth a $700 investment when I know I'm not making the return. Even San Diego doesn't charge that much. Fuck, neither does New York. I'm totally cool with insurance, but that seems a wee fucking ridiculous.
You'll see us at the Tucson one. What hotel? If it's one of the bad ones, you can bunk with us.
Arizona Riverpark Inn. It's like it wants to be a resort, but isn't. But the reviews don't suck.
It's on the wrong side of the highway and there is no pedestrian traffic allowed on Cushing Street (ie, you will need a vehicle).
...there's sidewalks on both sides of the street and it's not a busy street? Plus every con at TCC sees that road gets inundated with pedestrian traffic?
I was curious about the location so I looked it up. As you said, it looks very walkable according to Google Maps, street view shows a clear sidewalk under the freeway, and the walk is only 4 minutes. As shitty as Tucson is for pedestrians, they clearly deliberately made an easy path between the hotel and the convention center, which actually makes sense for a change.
