    Not sure yet - we'll need to wait for Supanova to announce the schedule - but generally where Supanova is concerned Saturday is the bigger/better of the two.

    I went to the talk with Rosie Borella on Sunday, Min but not Romancing the Stars. Just wondering as a Supanova newbie, if I wanted to come along for one day to see Isobelle, which day would be best? I was going to buy a one day pass but I noticed that you have to specify which day you are attending...

    I'm heading to Romancing the Stars this Thursday night - any other Bris Obernetters be going?
