SPACE Weekend Events

The fifteenth annual Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo, a.k.a. SPACE, takes place this weekend.  In addition to the main event, there are the traditional pre- and post- show parties tonight and tomorrow. 
The weekend kicks off this evening at 7:30 with a gathering at The Laughing Ogre comics shop at 4258 N. High Street in Clintonville.   There'll be free food and drink and many of the SPACE exhibitors will be there, giving you an opportunity to meet and get to know them without them trying to sell you something.
Saturday night, the action moves South down High Street to Kafe Kerouac at 2250 N. High for the After SPACE Comics Reading and Karoake Party, which, we can assume, is exactly what it says on the tin.  We're to be treated to some of the cartoonists exhibiting at the show reading from their work and then perhaps going on to publicly embarass themselves with their drunken rendition of "MacArthur Park." 
The show itself runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center located at 4900 Sinclair Road.  Admission is $5.00 for one day and 8 bucks for the whole weekend.
