For those on the email list, it looks like they're doing their one-day sale again on Monday. Given my last couple experiences at this show, I'm really undecided about going back ... but I may grab the ticket deal anyway, just in case. If I decide not to go, I'm sure someone will take them at a reduced price.

The Buy One Get One is a good deal for this show. I am also undecided about this show.

Back to traditional dates with a terrific theme.
