Join Twin Cities Geek at CONvergence 2017!

CONvergence is upon us, and of course, Twin Cities Geek is there! We have more going on than ever before—here’s where you can find us this year.

Badge Backers

Twin Cities Geek and Fearless Comedy Productions have teamed up again to bring you these nifty badge backers—the perfect thing to hang your ribbons from! Get yours at registration or stop by the Twin Cities Geek fan table outside Mainstage on Thursday or Friday (more on that below) or the Fearless Comedy party room (room 230).

TCG Hydration Challenge

Look for us roaming CONvergence between 8:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights to offer you the Twin Cities Geek Hydration Challenge! Spend at least one minute drinking a full 16-ounce glass of water to earn yourself one of three unique badge ribbons, up to one ribbon per day. Post a selfie of the hydration challenge and tag #TCGh2o and #CVG2017! Staying hydrated and adding to your ribbon collection—it’s a win-win.

Twin Cities Geek Roundtable

What do you want in your local geek culture magazine? Join Twin Cities Geek on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to noon in the Sheraton Whalon room for a roundtable discussion and listening session. Tell us what you think a Minnesota geek culture magazine should be, what you want to see more of, or whatever else is on your mind! Editor-in-chief Hal Bichel, senior editor Madeleine Vasaly, and editors and contributors Garrick Dietze, Mariah Kaercher, Rae Black, Sherry Anisi, and Tom “Takeo” Moen will be on the panel (with other contributors in attendance).

Read all about her awesomeness in her interview with us here—and then be sure to catch her at the opening and closing ceremonies, throwing down at the CONvergence Poetry Slam, and speaking on the following panels:
