Considering public health concerns and government advisories, we will postpone our planned event (Is the Next Unicorn Edible?), scheduled originally for 13 February 2020, to a later date. Refunds will be provided to those who have purchased tickets, and we will keep everyone updated once the new date of the event has been confirmed. We appreciate your understanding and continued support.
