AnimeUSA runs this weekend of November 9th-11th at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC. This is always a nice, fun con, with a lot of cosplay. It's particularly good for teens. Things appear to start at noon on Friday.
Here's their first AnimeUSA podcast which features staff members Theo Bugtong (Director of Marketing), Tom Stidman (Director of Guests), and Mark Pope (Vice Chair of Programming).
