A Guide to the National Puzzlers' League 2013 Convention in Austin!
Hosted by: Expelliarmus, Bonus, & Teki | Thursday, July 11 - Sunday, July 14, 2013
Welcome to ConTex!
The 2013 National Puzzlers' League convention will be held in Austin, Texas, July 11th to 14th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on the shores of Lady Bird Lake in the heart of the city. The hotel location is at the nexus of some of Austin's coolest offerings. The Hyatt is on the banks of Auditorium Shores, a huge park with miles of trails that will lead you around the river that runs through the city and into the greenbelt. Just a few blocks south are South First and South Congress streets, both of which boast tons of exceptionally good independently-owned restaurants, food trucks, and shops. Or walk or ride ten blocks north to the gorgeous Capitol building, which marks the center of town. On the way you'll pass dozens more outstanding eateries, bars, and live music venues. And the hotel is around the corner from the Congress Avenue Bridge, which serves as shelter for a colony of 1.5 million bats who fly out each evening at dusk to feed. It's rad!
Yeah, it's going to be hot (the average high temperature in July is 96 degrees). But it's also going to be awesome. We're going to cram as much of Austin's good music, good food, and general whiz-bang-ness as possible into ConTex. We sure hope to see you there! Erm, y'all!
