Even if you don't know anyone going, Pi-Con has a relaxed atmosphere that makes it a great place to get to know new people. I've even heard that past attendees think it's the nicest convention in the Northeast!
Membership rates go up July 15th, and the convention hotel discount rates(starting at $85 a night) go away after July 22nd, so head on over to the Pi-Con website to register and get more information today!
