Title: Other events in San Jose during Fanime weekend
Post by: otakuya on May 05, 2013, 09:42:44 PM
I was looking at Discover Silicon Valley and I found other things to do in San Jose during Fanime/Memorial Day weekend. I'm not saying you should go to these rather than Fanime, but just giving an option to travelers and first timers to the area. Plus, Fanime is 5 days long, rather than a one day event.


Sake San Jose Festival on May 23rd at San Jose Japantown

[Note: it's on Day 0 of Fanime]


San Jose Taco Festival on May 25th at San Jose Historical Park
www.sjtaco.com
[Note: it's on Fanime Saturday]

I think checking out other things in the city is a great part of it all if you have the means to do so. My group usually stick to different eateries that we don't have at home but that festival that was going on last year with all the food trucks was a great short break from the busy con center. This year on thursday we're taking the bart up to san fran to show our friend from Missouri around. Its his first time in CA how could we not?

It's sad! Just imagine the cosplay turnout for a Rocky Horror show, so epic!
