LonestaRG: Playtime!

Show off your big brain as Lone Star Mensa hosts this regional gathering with events all weekend long. Sure, it's four days of games, lectures, projects, intellectual, and not-so-intellectual activities, with a "Geek Market" to pick up some synapse striking gear. But what has us intrigued is the over-18 panel "Pony Play With Nicole Tarbuck." $90 for 4 days (day passes $25-48).
