[personal profile] reginagiraffe posting in [community profile] con_txt
Want to pimp out your new fandom by plopping folks on the couch to watch a few episodes? Maybe you want to pre-game for Disco Duck or the Vid Show, or keep the party going after con space closes? Have a room party!

(Our new hotel has kitchenettes in every room and allows you to hook a laptop up to the TV using an HDMI cable!)

Once again we'll have a paper message wall in the con space where you can announce your room party (don't forget to include the day, time, and your room number). But this year we're also giving you a way to announce and organize ahead of time: this post! If you're considering or planning to host a room party, here's the place to announce and discuss it.

We want you to have a fantastic time at room parties! Please keep in mind, though, that room parties are not officially part of CON.TXT, and the concom doesn't assume any responsibility for them (and all hotel rules and policies still apply). And please remember to be courteous to your fellow con-goers and considerate of other hotel guests.

Have an (unofficial) good time!

I'm up for hosting a dSC6D room party! LMK who is interested and what due South or Canadian Six Degrees you'd like to watch. "To the best of my ability" I will bring what's requested.

You were the first to respond, so you are the first to be asked what's a good time for you to do this: Friday night after vid show? Saturday night after Disco Duck? Sunday afternoon as an after-con room party?

I think I'm going to skip it - my dinner plans firmed up and I don't think I can make any of the 7 PM ones, and I don't really want to be out late enough for the others. (Or see it in 3D.) Thanks, though! I hope you all enjoy it!

Harry Potter Release Party

Also not a room party, but there's a Cursed Child/Harry Potter-themed release party on Saturday night from 8-midnight at the Barnes & Noble at the end of the blue line (Franconia-Springfield Metro). My local Harry Potter group is helping organize/host some of the activities and games at the event (including one that's always a hit with our group members: Potter Charades). It's been so long since the last HP book release party--who knows if we'll ever get another!

If you'd like to attend and want a ride from Metro to the bookstore and back, let me know. There's a cheap shuttle that goes from Metro to mall and back, but I don't know how late it runs. It's walkable, but you'd be doing it in the dark and I want you all to be SAFE, so I wouldn't recommend walking. Email me at katemmcdevitt@gmail.com if you're in need of a ride. If you've already got a car, parking is free.
