It was obvious from their sweet little Twitter announcement that they didn’t know what anime gold they had on their hands. By the weekend, they were only allowing 200 guests per day into the cafe, and they announced tickets were to be handed out at starting 9:30AM. I woke up early on Saturday and was in line by 9AM, but I was in the back. Dozens of other women were lined up ahead of me. Yuri on Ice is new, but already beloved! I managed to get two tickets for myself, and my friends who showed up a little later got one each.
My first afternoon go at the cafe I ordered the Victor pancake plate and the Yurio pierogis with a Yuri iced cocoa for me and a Victor cafe latte for my friend. The pierogis tasted a bit like nikuman. The pancake had a ton of whip cream. Underneath, too! We posed with the standees and the golden statue of Yuzuru Hanyu at the entrance. It was an early morning, but a great way to spend the afternoon.
