Haru Aki Cafe!

UCon at Uconn is teaming up with the new Haru Aki Cafe. Haru Aki Cafe is a Japanese style cafe located in the Storrs Center right next to the UConn campus. The best part of this is that if you attend the convention and then head over to the cafe you will be able to get a 10% discount with your badge. Who doesn't love Japanese foods and discounts? So when you have some time for food head on over to the Haru Aki Cafe, and click there for their webpage!
