BIFF (Burrard Inlet Fan Fellowship, a weekly meet-up of science fiction & fantasy fans) is having a "show and tell" night this Friday.
If you like, bring along something fannish to talk about. Maybe it's the first book you bought by your favourite author, or maybe it's a little figurine of a character from your favourite move, show, or comic. Maybe you're the one who bought that universal remote control in the shape of a light sabre which was being sold in the Dealers' Room at VCON the year before last.
Alternatively, there's a creativity challenge. To take part, bring an original story of 500 words or less, which contains the words "frog for rent". If you're too shy to read it out, somebody will do the honours for you.
Neither of these are mandatory if you want to come; they're just themes, fun things to do, for the evening. It's still mainly an informal get-together for science fiction & fantasy fans.
COST: Free to attend (though BIFF has an informal agreement with the restaurant that everyone who attends will order something)
RSVP: Not necessary; just show up. This is a regular Friday gathering. BIFF is the group in the section to the right of the front door after you enter.
