Well, I guess you’d better check out the housing/rideshare post. Just add a comment and see if anyone can help you out…or maybe help someone else out. (Posts must be approved, so there can be up to a 24-hour lag time for comments to be posted.)
Well, if it’s about this year’s zine fest, odds are the answer can be found on our updated info page. We have the skinny on parking, driving, and basically any transportation option to each of this year’s events. We didn’t include anything about private jets, but we figured if you were that rich, you probably have someone to figure this sort of thing out for you.
It’s a CZF tradition to meet up a few weeks before the zine fest to make some informational / directional posters to hang at the fest. Want to help us make some signs? There’s no artistic requirements! We’ll supply the materials — all you have to do is show up! Join us on Sunday, February 24th from 2-4pm at Read/Write Library (914 N. California). Facebook event here!
