Every once in a while, an event pops up around the country, one that you really want to experience. It is almost always, unfortunately, in a place that is nowhere near your place. What would you do in this situation? Most people would pass it up due to the usual factors- work, overly attached girlfriend, or laziness. I’ve found, however, that with catalysts such as an enthused friend and a free weekend, one might decide to make the trip.
Now if all I talked about was how I “almost” went to “The Art of Video Games” exhibit, this would be as disappointing to write as it would be to read. Good thing I went! I left Buffalo, NY with a friend of mine on a Friday night, and we drove 7 hours straight to D.C. all to see the museums and TAVG. Was it worth it? Oh heck yes.
