SaikouCon’s Secret Collaboration w/ The Holiday Inn and Sam Adams pub Revealed!

Ready for the reveal of the secret 21+ collaboration with the Holiday Inn Conference Center Lehigh Valley? Here it is! Starting September 26 at 9 pm in the Sam Adams Brew Pub within the Holiday Inn! If enough people come out for this first one, the Holiday Inn and Sam Adams Pub will let us do another one on Halloween night. For now we’re playing November and December by ear to how the first one, and hopefully second, go as well as the holidays. Who else is excited? If the 21+ Saikou Cosplay Nights get popular enough we may set up an all ager Cosplay event in the same vein in Stroudsburg, PA with SaikouCon 2014 Featured Guests The Gamers Edge Comics and Games.
