If you're new to the city or taking the T in from out of town, this is where you can get advice from people living in The Hub. Please keep discussion limited to things in and around Boston.

Bernie Sanders CONFIRMED to be at the Hilton

Post by Aurabolt » Thu Mar 30, 2017 11:44 pm

Just wanna pass this along for those who either haven't left for Boston yet, are at their hotel or otherwise have access to the forums.

Several congoers have confirmed to have run into Vermont Senator and former Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders earlier this evening. Apparently, he will be staying at the Hilton for 3 events in Boston unrelated to Anime Boston. Anyone who's met him knows if you run into him somewhere and he's not in a hurry, he will stop and chat with you for a few minutes.

Weather you like him or not and weather you care about politics or not, I figure I pass this along for anyone who may be interested in seeing him in the area.

The Bernie cosplayer last year sure did a good job acting like Bernie as well.

Also, wouldn't it be great if the real Bernie Sanders and the cosplayer met and took a picture together?!

There was a Trump and Hillary cosplayer last year as well if I remember right. Heard they all got together and had an impromptu debate too. LOL.

Spotted Bernie at the Marriot this morning as I was cutting through their lobby. Looked like he was getting a boarding pass and was inquiring hotel staff about breakfast.
