And some unofficial, fun activities at MLA:

#mlanet14bingo – for the card game being organized by @mascher to help us meet new people at MLA. Tweet a pic of your completed BINGO card with the hashtag #mlanet14bingo to win. “Complete” in this case means your full card is completed, not just one line.

#drinkingsig – “unofficial and completely unsanctioned,” the rules are that “any time two or more MLA members are together and drinking (even water), it constitutes a #drinkingsig meet up.” When you purchase a $5 #drinkingsig button from @LaMedBoheme73, proceeds go to the MLA Scholarship Fund.
