Hey guys! It's getting to be that time again so we wanted to let you all know the details for this years Meet and Greet!

We will be once again having it at Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken!
The date and time are Thursday 8/31 from 4pm-7pm

We are moving it up 30 minutes to accommodate more people and to minimize schedule conflicts.

We will have raffle prizes again this year however the games may change :)

We hope to see you there!

I didn't make the meet-and-greet last year because my flight came in too late, but this year my flight is earlier and I'm going to make sure I'm there this time. Can't wait to meet you guys and get my DragonCon rolling in full effect. Even though my DragonCon virginity is gone, this will only be my second year attending DragonCon. I learned a lot from the first year but I'm pretty sure I can still pick up some pointers from you vets. Because I'm always a sponge and I'm willing to learn.

I always thought the allergen was in the protein and not in highly refined peanut oil. But I guess I learned something new. But that really sucks, no Gus's, no Five Guys, no Chick-fil-a, how do you do it?
