Happy last second to last day of January, my friends, and welcome to Tuesday Tidbits! I hope we’re all having a fantastic week, or at least a week that isn’t totally sucking! I’ve been working ahead on blog material, starting to look at packing needs for a cruise, and working in the Murder Basement on my first project of 2018, which I will discuss on Friday. In the meantime, we’ve got a lot of great stuff happening, as winter continues to be a thing here in Indiana, despite the occasional warm weather trying to lull us into a sense of complacency. February kicks off at the end of the week, and we’ve got a lot going on, with conventions, local Geeky events, and more!
Let’s look at February!
- February 7th – 11th: Winter Fantasy! Dust off your dice, and head up to Fort Wayne for some gaming!
- February 10th: Knitting for Nerds! Hosted by Games Paradise, $20 will get you knitting needles, yarn, and plans to make an ear warmer/headband, plus people to show you how to do it! Starts at 2PM!
- February 24th: Filk Concert Series – The Shake Ups in Ponyville! The Shake Ups have a new My Little Pony album coming out! This event at Games Paradise will not only be a great show by this local band, but it will also be the premier of their newest album!
- February 24th: NWI Comic Con! Returning to Schererville, this is a great little one day show featuring artists, costumers, and dealers!
- February 25th: Ash Comic & Toy Show! Returning to the Rodeway Inn on the east side, Indy’s longest running toy and comic show is back for 2018!
Now, let’s look ahead to March!
- March 2nd – 4th: Anime Crossroads! Held here in Indianapolis, this is a fun little anime show that features a lot of cosplay and local artists!
- March 23rd – 25th: EvilleCon! This is another anime convention, this time down in Evansville!
- March 30th – April 1st: Who’s Yer Con! This is a free (unless you want to pay, which I’ve been known to do!) gaming convention here in Indianapolis! Games, a dealer room, panels, hosted by a great local group.
- March 30th – April 1st: Indiana Comic Con.
Now, what’s happening with the blog, the blogger, and friends of the blog?
- This Week’s Photo: Rats! I have become “Treat Giver” in the eyes of Casey and April. This is how they now greet me when I walk near their cage.
- Support Geeking in Indiana: If you look to the right hand side, there is a support link for the blog. In this link, you’ll find information on the following shops. This is how I can afford to order new merchandise, improve equipment, and cover convention fees! Help a Geek out, will ya?
- MyMerch Shop! Where you can buy Geeking in Indiana t-shirts, hats, mugs, and more! Added bonus: MyMerch is a Hoosier company! #SupportLocal
- Geeking Shop! This is where you find the merchandise I keep in stock at the Geek Cave. Pins, magnets, patches, and fidget spinners, while supplies last!
