Anime USA taking place on September 13 - 15 is a long running convention in our area and one of the few that is situated right in the heart of Washington DC at the Wardman Park Marriott. This convention is a lot of fun and is completely contained within the hotel. Right outside the hotel are many restaurants and fast food places and your only a few blocks from Adams Morgan. Registration for the convention is $50 and can be completed on their website http://animeusa.org/. Anime USA has also negotiated a room rate for the hotel at $159 for attendees of Anime USA and can be reserved through the anime USA site as well.
