Nothing in between

Mario mania isn't just taking in New York, as Nintendo has revealed San Diego California can expect a Mushroom Kingdom-themed party next week to celebrate the launch of Super Mario 3D Land.

This Friday, "sometime between 12pm - 1:30pm" according to Nintendo, dozens of Marios in Tanooki ears and tails will race through the Westfield Horton Plaza in what the press release calls a "surprise performance". We're hoping for the Macarena, but that's just us.

No love for people living in LA. No, I'm not referring to Los Angeles, but the state next to Texas! The Deep South never gets doodily.

Went to this! It was cool. It's raining today, a rare occurence in SD, but they put on a good show regardless! They danced a Mariotastic jig in front of the mall and invited people to come join, and I did. YAY
