Kurokiiro Festival--What's Nearby?

Okay, we know you're not going to spend ALL your time at Kurokiiro Festival, hanging out with Carrie Savage, playing video games, and buying things from the dealers' room.  You need to eat things besides the snacks we'll be selling.  So, the question is, Where do you go?

Never fear!  Cid, Leafy-chan and I, your fearless con chair, took an epic journey to find out the answer!

For our own sanity, I have to add--Kurokiiro Festival, Tekkoshocon INC, Cid, Leafy, and myself are not responsible for you or anything you do once you leave the convention premises.  However, since you're associated with us, being in the same fandom, we do ask that you obey the cardinal rule of Tekkoshocon and don't be stupid.  Thanks. :)


BLUE = Money  GREEN = Photospot  RED = Food  PURPLE = Other

First things first!  What can you get to using just your own two feet?
Let's go on an adventure!Collapse )

Still a little confused?

Well, Google Maps has an option to type in what you're looking for!  Just click here and you can find what you're looking for.  I warn you, it may be outdated--hence the field trip.

I hope this was helpful to all of you.  Now, we'll see you at Kurokiiro, right? XD

If you were waiting to get a room for Kurokiiro Festival...
Wait no longer!  There are only a few rooms left at the Kurokiiro rate of $119 a night!  To get this most delicious rate, you must call the Best Western off the Parkway directly at 412-922-7070 and you MUST mention Kurokiiro to get a room reserved.

Do not use the website, it is full of lies and will tell you there is delicious cake, but they are completely booked unless you stay two nights. (we're not forcing you to stay two nights, that's silly.) So call the Best Western off the Parkway now at 412-922-7070 to get the discounted rate of $119 a night for Kurokiiro attendees only!

We are pleased to present... Battlecake!
CMU's popular video game music cover band is happy to return to the Best Western!

Battlecake is a video game cover band originating from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. Since their debut, Battlecake has grown into a locally recognized band. Their past shows include Tekkoshocon 1/2, Tekkoshocon VII (opening for Eyeshine, Johnny Yong Bosch's band) and RocktakuFest, a joint concert with anime cover band, Antimotion, that netted over 200 attendees. Their energetic, shred-heavy, and fast-paced arrangements have come from a variety of games such as Megaman 2, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy games, Metal Gear Solid, Starcraft, Castlevania, Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon, and, of course, Portal. Their newest material is making its first debut this month, featuring songs from Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda, and more!

Be sure to check out videos of the band's performances on Youtube!
