For the first time, Anime Boston is excited to announce the opening of our very own Maid Cafe!

Join us for a leisurely experience inspired by the Japanese maid cafes that originated in Akihabara and have become popular in many cities worldwide. Come in for a sweet treat and be greeted by our adorable staff of maids and butlers who will accompany you for your stay. When you are finished with your snack, you can take pictures and play games with us or just sit back and relax.

We are delighted to serve the esteemed ladies and gentlemen of Anime Boston!

Will attending the cafe (not including food/drinks) cost money?
I believe if time passes, everything turns into beauty. If the rains stop, tears clean the scars of memory away. Everything starts wearing fresh colors. Every sound begins playing a heartful melody. Jealousy embellishes a page of the epic. Desire is embraced in a dream. But my mind is still in chaos and..

I am surprised they are able to do this, what with how the vendors in the Dealer's Room cannot sell food, and how the Artist's in Artist's Alley cannot even give candy away.

While all Anime Boston staff work this convention on a volunteer basis, staffing is different than volunteering.

When we refer to staff, we're talking people actually being part of the convention in certain positions with specific duties.

Volunteers have a different set of rules and are not considered staff and help out where needed.

...Good points and clearly a deal was made. My guess is assets from the Hynes Cafeteria will be used for the food and beverages served.

There seems to be a lot of buzz with this since it was announced. Will we run into long line and crowd issues?
