The Minneapolis one is at the event center. Is this brand new? Clearly it's not what we did last year.

They handed out a flyer about it at I-con.

Added the Walker Stalker Con in Chicago. The Atlanta one was super successful so they are doing one in Chicago. Same weekend as Kansas City con though...

And the St. Louis one has a bunch of cool people like Adam West, Sean Astin, Ralph Macchio, The Green Ranger, and lesser known Norman Reedus...

I know pretty much all TWD people went to the Walker Stalker Con in Georgia, but they also film there so that makes sense. Not sure if they would go to Chicago, but Glenn is from there so I would assume he would be there.

I for sure want to go to an event over that weekend. I'm leaning towards Kansas City though.

Just out of curiousity I checked prices for Planet Con in Kansas City. $55 for the 3 day pass and if we are willing to stay just outside of Kansas City we can get rooms for like $50/night. Staying downtown (where the convention and Power and Light District is) will be $100+ a night.

Just something to think about, it would be a fun mini-vacation.

"The 2014 show falls on the same weekend as the Big 12 basketball tournament, so demand for rooms downtown will be high and we recommend making your reservations early."

If Iowa State is playing maybe we can go to that too!
