If you’re attending ConFusion Convention during Janurary 19-22, then join us Saturday, January 21 at 9:00pm in our Penguicon Things room party located on the second floor of the Sheraton, in the party hall. (Room to be announced.) 
The Penguicon ConCom will be serving up fun, games, alcohol, and an epic waffle bites buffet during our party. We’ll also have accessible seating, an Assistive Listening Device on hand at the party for anyone in need, and service animals are welcome!

At the party, you can register for Penguicon 2017, use our laptop to suggest panel ideas, and/or just hang out! We Hate Bards will be hosting D&D games during the party, plus we’ll have other things to do.

Please remember, if you wish to imbibe some of our alcohol, you must bring your current, valid, government ID. And if Alcohol is not your thing, no worries, we will be providing other beverages!

Even if you can’t join us at Penguicon 2017, please come and join us in the Penguicon Things room party at Friendship is ConFusion! If you’re interested, or want further updates, please visit our Penguicon Things Event Page on facebook or email events@penguicon.org
