This month’s brunch was Sci-Fi themed. And, we revisited a location we really enjoyed a lot last year – Burgers2Beer. Once again, the food was excellent, and they made a drink just for us – The Pan Galactic Garble Blaster. Those of us that tried it, really enjoyed it!
Instead of coasters for swag this time, each attendee received a space themed pencil, a mini flashlight that had a star at the end, and their choice of 3 different space ships. In addition, thanks to Allied Cleveland, we were also able to give each attendee an item from A Wrinkle in Time. They sent them to us after the free screening they had earlier this month. Our members had a choice of either a draw string bag or a red ball. There was enough swag donated to this brunch, that every attendee was able to get something via a raffle.
In addition to our brunch, the other major event during March was Wizard World Cleveland. We had a booth and a panel there. By the end of the convention, we had close to 60 new members added to our Facebook Page. For pictures from our weekend at Wizard World Cleveland, click on this link.
