Specifically, the con tonight hosted a dinner, The Feast of Ice and Fire, in honor of its main guest, author George R.R. Martin.

I was lucky enough to attend, thanks to the con.
In addition to the five courses on the menu, the meal also came with its own souvenir: a special Balticon 50 glass.
Martin ate each course at a different table and was a very genial and entertaining host.
Tomorrow, the con begins in earnest, and I fulfill my first duty as Toastmaster by hosting the opening ceremonies. I'm quite looking forward to it!
