Get your excuses cranked up now!

Origins 2017 is in June, and in case you missed how much fun we had this past year, let's just say you won't want to miss it next year.

Where do you guys normally stay for this? A lot of the (close) hotels are already full and the few that aren't want full payment up front with no chance of refund if you need to cancel!  :o

Stay somewhere up High St closer to the Ohio St campus.  School is out then, and the hotels will have space.  You can hop the #2 bus down High St and there's like 3-4 stops along the side of the convention center you can use.  The #2 bus runs every 10-12 minutes or so, and is a well-used and well-traveled line.  It's about a 10-minute ride (maybe) from campus to the convention center on that bus.

Maybe I'll just spend the entire time drinking at whatever hotel I end up at.
