    Omegacon

    The Lodge at Crooked Lake
    Siren, WI

    http://www.omegacon.org/

    This "relaxacon" is an excellent gathering place for nerds who want to relax. Games and food abound, and lounging in comfy clothes is encouraged. I will be there, likely drinking and/or challenging someone to a random board game. You should do the same!
