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!
The month is drawing to a close, and by the time we all come together again for another Tuesday Tidbits, we’ll be in the final month of 2019. As you know from last week, we’ve started looking ahead to 2020 here in these posts, and last Thursday, I published the 2020 convention and show calendar, which at the time of this writing has had four new events added. Look down in the blog news for links to that. In addition, we have the final episodes of 2019 recorded for both YGLToN and Social Sci-Fi, and I’ll be working on the final episode of Indiana Geeking this week. So, it’s a really busy time here at the Geek Cave!
On with the countdown!
