Happy Tuesday, my friends! We are back with another edition of Tuesday Tidbits! This week, rolling into the weekend, we have a couple of really cool things happening! First off, starting TOMORROW, we have a great, long gaming convention! No, not that one in the summer! This one is up in Fort Wayne! Winter Fantasy is happening! Also, on Saturday the 10th, Games Paradise will be hosting Knitting lessons! AND Ed and Lee will be at Hero House Comics with Little Guardians! Then, we have so much more great stuff coming up, like a new Shake Ups album, more conventions, book signings, and a free gaming convention!
And we’re not even out of the first quarter of 2018, yet! So, let’s buckle down, and see what we’ve got!
