Saturday, September 10, we went to the post office to mail my passport renewal application, the library to pick up The Colour of Magic, and Spoons for the bacon pancakes with Nutella. We went to Canton Games for what was advertised as a "show up, get a free pack of Magic cards, minimaster, win a free pack" (i.e., we assumed that we could just play each other, then collect our won pack), but turned out to be a real, full-blown tournament. We didn't show up until the third round, but really, that was just fine, because we were there for about two hours as it was, and I think I would have gone absolutely insane if I had had to be there for six.
After the tournament, we went to Patterson Park to walk around, only to discover that the Ukrainian Festival was happening. There were lots of pierogies, beer, sauerkraut, sausage, and potato pancakes. I got a very generous and delicious sampler from Ze Mean Bean Cafe. There was also an awesome giant shark slide.
