Minneapolis Indie Xpo
The first ever Minneapolis Indie Xpo is coming up on August 21 at the Soap Factory, "celebrating independent comics and Midwest cartoonists." The programming schedule has been set and it looks like a fun day. Also, admission is FREE. Many many many thanks to Sarah Morean and Andy Krueger for organizing this.
High Seas Adventure!
October 1-3 is High Seas Adventure weekend at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, promising pirate games and contests in addition to their usual shows and shenanigans. And BBQ. There's also a BBQ competition going on that weekend.
