I was there last year – there’s an annual conference – but I never get to explore too much because it’s a short conference and it’s pretty packed. I did get out more this year though, because I wasn’t quite so sick this year…
You’re in Ann Arbor right now? I went to grad school there! Man, I miss that place. If you have a chance, go downtown. There’s a great comic shop there as well as like 5 or different used bookstores. Zingermann’s Deli is great as well.

I did get to Dawn Treader Books, which was fun, and I went into the Arcade and looked at the antique shop and such. And we got ice cream!
Okau! So, awesome comic shop: Vault of Midnight. If you like bubble tea, Bubble Island. There’s a pretty awesome metaphysical shop/tea room called Crazy Wisdom….most of downtown is awesome actually.

I was going to go to Vault of Midnight, but it was too far to walk in the time I had (it wasn’t too far in general, I just could look at a lot more stuff if I stayed closer to campus).
