Beverage Changes Coming to ConSuite
Starting in 2017, neither Pepsi nor Coke are continuing to distribute pre-mix, the delivery method CONvergence ConSuite has always used to bring you thirst-quenching sugary fuel for your convention weekend. Sadly, this means ConSuite and Cinema Rex will no longer be able to provide Pepsi or Coke soda products.
But fret not, for all hope is not lost in the galaxy of beverage choices! For CONvergence 2017, ConSuite is working with a local soda shop that does bottling on-site. As a result, everyone visiting ConSuite or Cinema Rex for refreshments during the convention this year will have a whole new variety of sodas at their fingertips, with several interesting and exciting flavor choices that weren’t an option before.
ConSuite is also adding more water dispensers for 2017, so staying hydrated during mission briefings, space battles, and epic quests at CONvergence will be easier than ever!
Vogon poetry. Bilbo’s Walking Song. Nevermore. Nerds have words, and coming to CONvergence 2017 is the official CONvergence Poetry Slam! Join your fellow spoken word fans on Friday evening in Harmonic CONvergence to celebrate those words and those nerds in an exciting competitive format!
