Powerhouse Takes Manhattan

The Powerhouse sales triumvirate recently returned from a trip to NYC where they spent several days meeting with various ad agencies and game studios-- evangelizing the good word of capitalistic American animation and mesmerizing the city folk with their Texan charm.

While in town we also had a chance to check out some sites, including the massive Toys R Us in Times Square (which is totally a reasonable place for adults to go, I might add).

We also had a chance to take a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge.

 And, as always, there was beer and french fries.

We had a great time and met lots of amazingly creative people, but we're glad to be back home! Thanks to the big apple for having us!
