Whether you’re in the mood for a party, a par-tay, an affair, a ball, a bash, a blowout, a to-do, a function, a gala, or a cannibalistic blood orgy, Con on the Cob has you covered. Here’s a sampling of what’s in store:
The Welcome to Robots vs Giant Monsters and also Everything is Made Out of Pretzels Get-To-Know-Everyone Party (All Ages)
Join our staff, guests, and other fancy peeps in a toast to whatever it is you want to toast (maybe toast itself). Munch some gourmet vittles and shmooze with the crust. Dress in your shabbiest finery and enjoy the faux-chic ambiance. It’s to die for (not literally).
Features of this shindig include a welcoming speech by Con on the Cob founder Andy Hopp (that’s me), a tour of the digs, and all sorts of fun jazz.
