We are back with another installment of Tuesday Tidbits, where I try to track down events that I think would be of interest to you, my fellow Geeks here in Indiana! Plus, pictures of the Geek Pets!
November is halfway over, which means it’s time to start looking ahead to 2020! Normally, there’s not much going on, with the exception of some book signings, but this year, it looks like Indianapolis is getting yet another gaming convention, the last weekend of January. This is reminding me that I REALLY need to get to work on the 2020 Convention Calendar, since we essentially only have a handful of weeks left in 2019!
However, that’s in the future. For now?
On with the countdown!
What’s happening for Hoosier Geeks?
November is halfway over!
- November 21st: Dice & Decks: Game Night at the Athenaeum! It’s an evening of card, tabletop, and dice games for the whole family! Tables and chairs will be set up in the lobby areas of the Athenaeum for people to bring their own games, or to play some of the games they have available.
- November 28th – December 1st: Starbase Indy! Celebrate Thanksgiving Weekend with your Geeky chosen family at this long-running Star Trek/STEM convention at the Wyndham West in Indianapolis!
And now, December, wrapping up 2019!
- December 7th: Voice Over Workshop! The Bloomington Academy of Film & Theater let me know about this upcoming workshop, focusing on voice over work for anime, audiobook, and commercials! Featuring voice actor Leraldo Anzaldua (IMDB), the class will look at equipment, software, how to do a demo reel, and more information on techniques and what you need to know! Visit the link for more information!
- December 13th: Cafe Macabre Live Reading! This new horror anthology, put out by an all-female crew, will be featured in a live-reading by Leah Lederman at the Scarlet Lane Brewing Company in McCordsville! Fittingly, it’s on Friday the 13th!

- December 21st: Zinester Solstice! Hosted by Gluestick Indy and Irvington Vinyl & Books, this is a get-together of zine makers, surrounded by vinyl records, light snacks, and good vibes. A great break from the holiday hustle and bustle!
Let’s jump ahead to 2020, and January!
- January 18th: Cafe Macabre Live Reading! It’s another chance to meet the women behind Cafe Macabre, the horror anthology created by an all-female crew! Mark your calendars, and keep your eye on this space for more information!
- January 31st – February 2nd: IndyStorm Gaming Con! It’s a new gaming convention, at the Wyndham West. Check out their site for more information.
Now, what’s happening with the blog, the blogger, and friends of the blog?
- Today’s Picture: The Geek Pup is very concerned with the Geek Dog’s situation.
- 2020 Convention & Event Listings. I’m working on updating my spreadsheet, and writing the blog page, for the 2020 conventions. Sure, a lot of the later-in-the-year ones don’t have dates announced yet, but there are a lot already that do, including a couple of new conventions. Please, if you run a show, make sure you have an updated Facebook page, or website, or even reach out to me directly via email, not Facebook Messenger.
- Extra Life! It was a long weekend, streaming for fifteen and a half hours on Friday night/Saturday morning, then streaming for another thirteen hours on Saturday night/Sunday morning, but I’ve made it through my first weekend! I can still raise money through the end of 2019, so feel free to keep hitting the link, and keep tossing money at Riley Children’s Hospital!
- Do you like how the blog looks? Then check out Studio 27 Indy and TikiKitchen Incorporated. I just write this stuff. They’re the ones that make me look good. Also, check out the art page on TikiKitchen Incorporated! There’s some great stuff on there! It’s TikiBitchin!
Am I missing anything? Use one of those contact links to give me a shout! Have a great week, and I’ll see you later!
