Greetings!  Well, FANFEST was last weekend and, to be honest, it wasn’t as well attended as we would have liked.  But everybody that was there, attended it very well!  Attendees had a wonderful, up-close experience and we saw a lot of new faces.  It was a great show, at a great venue!  The staff of FANFEST and the Saint Paul RiverCentre were accommodating, and ran a professional show!  There was a great mix of artist and vendors!  If you didn’t make it this year, that’s sad.  But don’t be too sad, because FANFEST will be back next year!  We are going to be there next year and we hope that you will be too!  We will keep you posted.  What else is going on?  Oh yeah, the Minnesota State Fair is starting soon!  If you get to the fair, make sure that stop by the 1919 Root Beer stand, and buy a delicious frosty root beer.  And don’t worry!  The Source will be open during the State Fair, and we have cool air conditioning and cool stuff going on all the time.  Thanks!
Wolverine is still dead.

Shieldmaiden Sunday

We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.

Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.

Tim
