This is something that always seems to be weird about Anime USA at the Wardman: we always have to share the space with other events. You know, the kind of events that would NORMALLY be in a swanky hotel on the expensive side of our nation's capitol. Bankers and businessmen and government organizations and stuff like that. Granted, AUSA isn't the only time I've EVER seen a con doublebooked (I remind you that Katsucon 2013 was a thing that happened) but never so consistently, or so obviously above our own financial status.
...and if anything, I DOWNPLAYED the number of golf bags here. I swear these guys just about filled up that entire rotunda in front of the elevators with these things.
