Minicon 47 Locations & Hours

[Info snagged from the pocket program with details on locations of Consuite & Bar based on my own observation.]

Registration is located on the first floor in the north/short tower atrium area. Not sure where that is? Follow hotel signs to the coffee shop and you should be able to see a bunch of big tables from there. That's also where you should go to Volunteer or ask questions. Registration will be open 10am - 10pm on Friday, 9:30am - 8pm on Saturday, 9:30am - 4pm on Sunday.

The consuite is located on the 8th floor in the North/short tower (accessible from the elevators near the coffee shop, not the ones near the front desk & hotel bar). When you emerge from those elevators on the 8th floor, you'll want to head down the long corridor on the right side of the atrium, all the way down the hall to what is essentially room 882 (a.k.a. Manager's Apartment). The consuite opens at 4pm on Friday and will remain open for the rest of the con.

The Bar (a.k.a. The Singularity) is located on the 7th floor of the north/short tower. As you get off the elevator on the 7th floor, it is located immediately to your right. The Bar will open at 5pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and stay open "until we drop."

The Art Show is located in Atrium 4. Hours are: 3-7pm Friday; with a Reception and "How to Draw a Dragon" from 5:30-6:30pm. 10am - 6pm on Saturday with Live Model Drawing from 1-2pm. Art Show pickup is from 11am-4pm on Sunday.

The Dealers' & Science Room is in Plaza 5 & 6. Hours are 3-7pm on Friday, 10am-6pm on Saturday, 11am-4pm on Sunday.

The first panels listed on the programming grid are at 4pm. Opening Ceremonies at 7pm in the Edina Room. Closing Ceremony 4pm on Sunday in Edina Room.

First Kid-Friendly programming item starts at 1pm on Friday. You'll find children's programming in Plaza 3.

Film Room is in Plaza 4, first films scheduled to start on Friday at 6pm, Saturday at 10:30am, Sunday at 10pm.

Music Stage is in Plaza 2 with performances starting at 8pm on Friday, 2pm on Saturday. Late night music circles in Atrium 8 starting at 8pm on Friday, 9pm on Saturday (or whenever people show up).

There's space for gaming in an open area between Atrium 4 & Atrium 5; there's also a gaming room in Plaza 1 with scheduled games.

Everything is subject to change, of course, and the most current schedule (and map) can be found posted at the con. With changes listed in the con newsletter and posted at the con.

We'll be holding a Seder in Atrium 6, starting at 8:30 and going to finish (probably less than an hour). This is not in the Program Book or Pocket Program because, despite 4,000 years of lead time, it came together at the last minute.
