Amber Conrad (@superduperyay) has stepped in as leading lady, so please give her a big welcome. Guys, I am so excited for Sidequest. If you are unfamiliar with these community driven events, they coincide with RTX's schedule, so if you would like a chance to meet community members outside of the convention, this is your go-to event.

Here's the breakdown:

Thursday, June 30: The charity auction! Easily a favorite event among the community. Dress up, look fancy, bid an auction items (pieces that are made BY the community) and help out charity. It truly is a wonderful experience and it is a great way to kick off RTX.

Where: Radisson Hotel & Suites Austin Downtown (Ballroom)

111 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78701

When: 8pm CST - midnight CST

SPECIAL NOTE: All ages welcome

Saturday, July 2: Barlympics! Hang out, play pool, throw darts, etc... unwind after the biggest day of the convention. And drinks. Drink are definitely a thing. (Speaking of.. drink responsibly).

Where: Buffalo Billiands

201 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701

When: 10pm CST - 2am CST

SPECIAL NOTE: Event is 18+ older

Sunday, July 3: Sidequest Lounge! The convention has come to a close, so take the opportunity to decompress and talk about your favorite moments of RTX. Sidequest has reserved Buffalo Billiards for this event, so take a load off and relax!

Where: 201 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701

When: 9pm CST - midnight CST

SPECIAL NOTE: Event is 18+ older

Those of us who are used to attending the goodbye luncheon will notice that Salt Lick was not listed. Unfortunately, because of the timing of 4th of July this year, Salt Lick will be closed that Monday. =[ I don't even like BBQ and I'm sad about that! But Amber has worked hard to get the Sunday evening plans in order to make up for the goodbye luncheon and that in turn decreases the overall ticket price for Sidequest.

I will be attending this year. I hope to see you!
