Wrath of MidOhio Con October 8, 2008

Posted by vorpalkeith in Life The Universe and Everything.

Last weekened I attended MidOhio Con ’08 in Columbus Ohio.  At a con there’s way too much to try to sum up in words, so I thought I’d do a series of bullet points to try to explain the weekend.

– Cleveland Greyhound depot is filled with colorful characters

– Stayed in the same hotel as David Beckham and the LA Galaxy.  Beckham walked three feet behind me when Eric and I were checking in.

– People I talked to at length were Sean McKeever, Mike Grell, David Mack, Chris Eliopolous, and Art Baltazar. All awesome guys

– Barley’s Brewery across from the convention center makes good peroghis and chili cheese fries.  After this and Heroes Con must make point to eat at brewery every convention.
