Focus: Sunday Brunch

October 19, 2014 in News, Programming by JennAK

Food, glorious food! Hot sausage and mustard….

(Sorry. We forgot that we’re not an Oliver! Convention for a moment.)

Sunday morning brunch… your chance to have a delightful buffet-style meal while getting to chat amiably with your fellow attendees and many of the convention guests. A separate-admission event (that requires convention membership to attend), the brunch runs from 10 a.m. – noon Sunday in the Lilac Room. Tickets are still available, but are going fast—just $55. Don’t miss out!

Year of first appearance: 2000
