My Friday morning's gonna be hectic, with possible hotel reservation issues, needing to pick up my badge, and rushing for merchandise.
I don't see any info on these in this thread yet, so here's some things going on Friday night:
At 9:30pm, the people who brought us Hello! Party are throwing another gathering called Hello! Disco
several blocks away at the House of Dereon Media Center (2204 Crawford Street):https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hello-disco-tickets-20834916797
$12.27 online, $15 at the door
