Thank you Jrose for bumping this thread. It is, to me, anyway, very important and I would have missed it.

Please fill me in too! My power was out from Thursday until Saturday, so I had to deal with that on Saturday, and after a few hours of frustration in that department I decided against hopping on a bus and heading into the city. I wish I could have made it!

I popped in, so can't give a full report. There were tables. There were people behind the tables. There were books, magazines, zines, buttons, and various curious / lovely objects on the tables.

I didn't recognize many people. In many ways, I see this as a very good sign.

There were readings. There were people listening to the readings.

Seemed to be a full showing, though not chokingly crowded. I prefer events that aren't chokingly crowded. And not too hot.

The security guards, I could have lived without. But that's life at an event at the JCC.
