Off to DragonCon for the weekend. For those not in the science fiction/fantasy loop, DragonCon is the largest science fiction and fantasy convention in the USA. It’s held every Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, and is a circus.
I work security for the Art Show, which is an experience in and of itself.
If you’ve ever really enjoyed people-watching, this is the place to be. The convention literally takes over the entire hotel district in Atlanta; by Sunday afternoon all (yes ALL) the ATMs within walking distance are out of cash; the parade holds up traffic all morning Saturday; and, best of all, you can wear interesting costumes on MARTA (our area transit system) without anyone raising an eyebrow.
