Located at a beautiful outdoor shopping mall in my hometown of Perrysburg, a suburb of Toledo. This is where Mandy and myself will be dinning out Saturday evening with some other friend who will be running the various events this weekend.
Good luck to everyone on Sunday and I hope to see you all at the expo! I will be working the info booth located just outside the entrance of the expo from 12:30-4pm so stop by and say hello!
