Ladies and Gents! It's the weekend you have all been waiting for, well... its the weekend I have been waiting for, and if you are of the nerdy ilk like I am you should be very, very excited!
Its WonderCon weekend!
It is a weekend full of gaming, comic books, and general nerdery. (And yes, I will be trying to create as many mutations of the word nerd as I can.)
WonderCon is the second largest comic book convention in the states and it happens right here in San Francisco. It's smaller than the behemoth that is San Diego ComicCon which just means that its a more intimate experience. Its held at the Moscone Center which is super easy to get to from the Tortoise, which means that if are of the nerdist persuasion you have no reason not to go
This year is gonna be jam packed with meet ups and panels of epic proportion. Jon Favreau will be there presenting footage from the upcoming scifi thriller Cowboys & Aliens. Ryan Reynolds will be there talking about his upcoming Green Lantern flick. And the GREAT Neil Gaiman will be there discussing his writing gig on Doctor Who panel. What more could you want in a weekend?
The three day pass is $50 the one day on Sat/Sun is $25 and the Sunday pass is $15. Even if you don't go to too many panels there will be a ton of exhibitors selling there wears. Plus a Browncoat meet up and a Slave Leia dress up table.
So if you're gonna be in SF for this most epic of weekends spend your days at the con and spend your nights partying it up in the Ballroom at the Tortoise.
