As if being over near Cape Canaveral where rockets frequently blast off into space (how cool is it to know that still happens regularly?) wasn’t cool enough, where miles of Atlantic beaches await the sunworshippers, the area is going to have a geek convention this weekend…and YOU should be there.
Space Coast Nerd Fest in in Melbourne, Florida and is happening tomorrow and Sunday (that’s May 23 and 24, for those of you who are checking in late on this blog). The website tells me that tickets are $10 for one day and $15 for both days. That’s a steal! And I gotta tell you, in my experience, shows that charge less at the door are generally going to offer you more of a personal experience inside.
If you’re coming out to see me—and I hope you do!—I’m only able to be there on Sunday (12-5). But there will be some pretty cool guests there, including Michael Winslow, the guy who makes all those cool/whacky/funny sounds in the movies. Michael Koske, from The Walking Dead will be there. Met him up at the Geek Gathering in Alabama and he’s one heck of a nice guy. So if you’re a WD fan, go meet him and get his autograph. Tell him I sent you and to leave your brains intact!
I’m supposed to be participating in a panel on Sunday, but I’m not sure what time that takes place. A full report will be coming next week—maybe I’ll have a new tan, too, you never know! Meanwhile, head on over to their facebook page and give them some Rolo-love and “like” them. See you there!
