Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

Spring is the season where new life blossoms into the year. Con season really picks up. Warm weather kicks in and everyone is happy to be rid of the cold weather. How did the months of March through early May go? Let’s find out.

Penguicon 2015

Penguicon 2015
April 24th-26th

This excerpt is directly from the website:

Penguicon is a three-day event where we all learn from each other (as well as from our Guests of Honor) about hacking, building sci-fi universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music, incredible costumes, and more.

It is an event for mainly sci-fi and OpenSource. However, this is a big hang out for ALL areas of the geek/nerd community. What better way to meet people who wave the geek/nerd flag? It is a convention tailored mainly for adults even though kids are welcome. Please keep that in mind. Mark it on your calendar.
