MileHiCon Meet, Munch & Mingle
On Friday night at 8pm the MileHiCon Mix, Munch, and Mingle, or "MMMM" for short, will take place.  The "MMMM" is a great way to meet our Guests of Honor, as well as other authors, artists, and fans attending the convention. Various munchies and hors d'oeuvres prepared by the Hyatt's gourmet chefs will be served. A very modest fee of only $6 will be charged for the Food. You can purchase your "MMMM" ticket at the MileHiCon registration desk. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages can be purchased at Garrity's Bar.
