Sci Fi Coffee House

"There once was a trekkie named Doug,
who was lonely and wanted a hug.
He approached a Klingon female,
told her his sad tale,
to which she pinned him with great passion to the rug."

OK, yeah, that was a silly limerick, just to get your attention. This is a proposed event for saturday evening in the restaurant, around 7pm or 8pm, around coffee time. Feel free to bring your best limericks, poems, or prose, that have a sci fi / fantasy / fandom theme.
First come first served, there will be a sign up sheet for this.
Also feel free to wear your best beatnick outfit, retro, modern, or post modern, bring your wrap around shades, and prepare to snap your fingers ;) Also, as an alternate, SCI-FI bad jokes from memory! who can reel off a bunch of bad sci-fi/fantasy/horror jokes in a short time from memory? 'a couple of aliens went into a bar...'

SWAG - SWAG - SWAG!

Again this year we are looking at having a good bunch of motion picture promotional items for give away during and/or at the end of the con!

Also, there again will be many freebie tables for groups, companies, etc, to put out literature and even more swag! Those freebies of course can only be legal, no higher than PG-13 in nature (before 9pm), and non-political in nature. Feel free to put out stuff about your groups or companies, or both, on these tables.
