Open Parties at Renovation

While it's not unusual for there to be any number of private parties that occur at a Worldcon, there are usually a number, as well, that are open to all. Renovation doesn't sponsor these, but as a courtesy to our members, here's a list of the ones that the hosts have asked us to tell you about. We also do not, at this time, have a list of rooms but at least now you know to look for them!
