Room reserved, no table this year though. But I will bring the wife, so there's that. :wink:

She tolerates Sci-Fi, and isn't interested in models really. But she wants to see what it's like at WonderFest when I go each year, and if she gets bored there's always Facebook, reading a book, or whatever. Figured since I don't have a table it would be a good year to bring her so we can look around together.

The one with all the turrets. And the plastic in every direction. No, not the local nudie bar. The hobby store. What were YOU thinking I meant? :P

Room is booked. :8) After several years, I finally got a person who actually spoke English.

FAIR WARNING!!! She did tell me that the hotel is now charging $20 a night for a refrigerator, and $20 a night for a rollaway bed. This is the first time I have ever heard of this, so it might be new.
I got a sweater for Christmas last year. hope I get a screamer this year...

They've always charged for rollaway beds.

With my AAA discount, I got in at HoJo's for about $90 per night. What's the Crowne running this year?

In the 12 or so years I have attended they have only screwed up my reservation once.
