Boing Boing’s Weekend of Wonder sounds pretty great
Comic Book Resources gives our new “extravaganza” a thumbs-up. Come join us for the fun Sep. 18-20, at Southern California's historic Mission Inn Hotel and Spa.
Boing Boing knows how to craft a difficult-to-resist pitch for its “three-day extravaganza of hands-on wonder”: Start with a name like “Weekend of Wonder,” add guests like Disney veteran John Edgar Park, puzzle designer Michael Borys, hot-rod artist Coop, and top it off with a musical performance by Adventure Time's Hunson Abadeer the Lord of Evil and Marceline the Vampire Queen (okay, Martin Olson and Olivia Olson, who play those characters).
The “extravaganza” takes place Sep. 18-20 at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Southern California, and it sounds perfect for fans of DIY culture, art, puzzles, and of course Boing Boing itself. Co-organized with Baby Tattoo, the gathering includes workshops, demonstrations, exhibits and an alternate-reality adventure. Oh, and food.
Details can be found on the Weekend of Wonder website.
