If you love comics or have an interest in learning more about the numerous comic book movies and television shows that are around, this is a a great opportunity. The special guests of this event encompass the industry’s heaviest hitters.

Feed Your Fandom, Feed Your Belly

Either before or after you embark on your WonderCon 2019 journey you should grab some tasty food. I found a nice spot called The Scratch Room that is located right by the convention center.

Make a day out of your Anaheim excursion. Hit up The Scratch Room and try some of their award-winning breakfast items or tasty burgers. They have a diverse menu that will whet your appetite. So, be it at WonderCon or The Scratch Room, you’ll be in for a satisfying weekend.

The Annual Convention Returns

The Comic-Con super-fandom returns to Orange County this upcoming weekend, March 23rd – 25th. Featuring comics (of course), anime, gaming, movies and television, your inner geek should be excited. The Anaheim Convention Center will house three days jam=packed with sneak peeks, Q&As, premiere screenings, and special guests.

Whether you’ve been a comic book fan since the origins of Batman and Superman, or just recently converted because of the popularity of The Avengers, you’ll find something to enjoy at WonderCon. WonderCon isn’t quite as large as Comic-Con, but it does give visitors more intimacy with the comic creators themselves.

The event will include autograph sessions, a blood drive in order to give back to the local community, a Children’s Film Festival, and Tournaments & Demos of some of the most popular board and card games. You can certainly expect to see numerous celebrities as well. And with them, inevitably, the excited mobs of fandom that follow them around. If you’ve just watched the popular new film, Black Panther, consider this event an opportunity to meet with its comic book creators and a chance to say “Wakanda Forever” with like-minded individuals. While Saturday tickets for this three-day event have been sold out, there is still an opportunity to attend. Details for ticket purchases can be found on the event website right here.

LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show

Another day another con to tell you about. This time we’re talking about the LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show, now in its second year.

In a bit of a last minute post, this event actually starts later today! However, tickets are still available and even if you catch the tail end of today’s festivities you still have all of tomorrow to consume your sweet treats. Yes, this event will provide you with numerous free samples of tasty cookies and sweets for you to indulge in. Although apparently last year’s event was a bit of a chaotic affair, the LA Cookie Con organizers have learned from last year’s tribulations. The event is now two days instead of one, and also occupies a much bigger venue.

Honestly, have you ever seen something more aesthetically pleasing than these cookies? I don’t know if i’d want to bite into them or just admire them as works of art. LA Cookie Con also features many celebrity chefs and social media influencers. So, chances are if you’ve seen some Instagrammable cookies recently, their purveyors will be in attendance. Tickets for LA Cookie Con can be found right here

One day tickets will run you about $25 for adults and $12 for the kiddies. I hope you packed your sweet tooth! See you there!

Wake Up at CoffeeCon LA

Whether you are a drinker or a brewer, this weekend’s CoffeeCon has something for everyone. The Reef will be hosting this dynamic coffee-fueled event, located in the heart of Downtown LA. The doors open at 9 on Saturday and Sunday, so you might need to grab some other coffee before you make the drive down. There will be plenty of coffee samples and products for you to sample if you’re in attendance as you’d expect.The event will have presentations and classes about coffee-related things like single origin drip, and latte art. So, some of these things might sound like a foreign language to the uninitiated. However, if that’s the case, then this sounds like a great opportunity to learn some new, interesting coffee-things. I myself have become increasingly interested and immersed into the world of coffee. I’m looking forward to being able to bring some new latte/cappuccino knowledge home.

Over 50 exhibitors will be in attendance, so you’ll be able to sample some coffee goodies from local businesses and from around the country. CoffeeCon LA tickets can be found right here and i’d encourage jumping on those tickets ASAP. Tickets will run you anywhere from $20-$50 depending on how much access to particular coffee seminars and classes you desire.
