Awesome Con Washington DC APRIL 26 - 28, 2019

Post by LadySekhmet » Fri Apr 19, 2019 6:25 am

Hi,

Last night, the Washington DC Awesome Con popped up on one of my feeds. It has a photo of Lucius Malfoy amongst its guest photos. They have confirmed via their FB page that Himself will be there (or maybe, it's really Lucius Malfoy, who has been relegated to attending cons with Muggles to prop up the Malfoy fortune? just kidding!!) It looks like they also have some NASA guy.

So the Washington DC Awesome Con is APRIL 26 - 28, 2019. The photo and autograph ops prices seem reasonable.
Here is the website: http://awesome-con.com

Here is their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/AwesomeConDC/

So Jason has inched slightly closer to being within Lady Sekhmet striking distance, but alas!- as always - I have something to do in Philly that weekend, so there is little to no chance that I will be able to attend. Plus, I was literally just down there last weekend. Timing is everything...

But I will be at the Philadelphia Wizard World CC in June if Jason is so inclined...

Lady Sekhmet, have you saved a Google search? (I feel so old typing that--I'm sure it's been superseded by something else twice as effective...)

On another note, WHAAAAAAT

because by bizarre coincidence, I AM in Washington, D.C. this weekend. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Oh no! I totally missed your post about being in DC! Yes, I was in Alexandria the weekend before Easter for a conference! I was presenting on pottery...because that's how I roll. lol And then I got sick with the Conference Crud and was down for the count for like 2.5 weeks.

But I'll be back in DC on June 8 to see a museum exhibit.

No, I haven't saved a google search... well... Have I? No, I don't think I have. Why do you ask?

Alexandria--one of my favorite old stomping grounds! So sorry you missed it, LadySekhmet--it would have been great to meet you.
We'll try again!

Some day!! :cherub

I was back for the day on June 8, but I was with folks and we went to see the Queens Of Egypt exhibit at the Nat Geo Museum. We didn't see much else, although we did go to a very nice Peruvian restaurant afterwards and had some really excellent drinks and appetizers before catching the train back.

Thanks, Helen. I spent a lot of time coughing. I sounded like a wounded goose. Thankfully, I'm all better now.
