Sun April 30 at 1:00 PM, The Westin Southfield Detroit, in Southfield, MI
1500 Town Center, Southfield, MI, USA (Map & Directions)
Penguicon is a combination scifi convention and open source conference that's been running annually for 15 years. I'm a guest of honor at Penguicon 2017 (my schedule), as is MeFi's own Cory Doctorow (schedule) and Ada Palmer (schedule) whose work's been discussed on MetaFilter several times. Other speakers include MeFi's own John Scalzi.
I'd love to meet MeFites for a beverage sometime during the con -- midday Sunday looks pretty free for me, but we could change that. Even if you're not coming to the convention, maybe this can be a Detroit area thing.

ETA: OK, Sunday 1pm it is! Let's meet for a drink or snack at the hotel bar on the first floor. I'm an Indian-American woman with fairly short hair.

I won't be at the con, but I'd be interested in an excuse for a Detroit-area thing!

This is brainwane's spouse. She's out with the con crud and unfortunately won't be able to make this meetup. My apologies for the late notice -- this just happened.

I'd been a definite Maybe. Wasnt certain I'd get there anyway. But hope I can attend a IRL sometime. The only ones in SE MI seem to be in A2. Oakland Co *would* be great for me.

Hope brainwane feels better.
