Pittsburgh's Steel City Con
returns to the Monroeville Convention Center (minutes from downtown Pittsburgh) this December 2nd - 4th!
The Star Wars guests include Bonnie Piesse (Young Aunt Beru) and Mark Dodson (Salacious Crumb) this time around, but also "The Fonz" Henry Winkler will be there, as well as Margot Kidder and others, so make your plans to attend!
The Hotel Room Block at the Doubletree is expiring this week so act soon to get the discounted rate. It's a pretty nice hotel near the convention center, and puts you right in the heart of the area's dining and other features.
Also, Zombie fans, this will be one of the last times the Monroeville Mall will be laid out fairly similar to how it was in the original Dawn of the Dead... Just thought I'd mention this since I know some folks like to stop by to check that out. J.C. Penney where a lot of the action took place in the film, is being moved to a larger portion of the mall and things, so it won't look much like it used to before long. (not a convention thing I know, but it sort of draws folks in I've noticed, haha)
I'll be there, as well as PSWCS and 501st Legion's Garrison Carida. The PSWCS and Garrison Carida are doing their Toys For Tots toy drive they do every year in December, and will need help making kids happy this holiday season with unopened toys (preferably Star Wars ones, but I think almost any unopened toy would be accepted).
I'll be wandering around some Friday and possibly other days, so I look forward to seeing any/all who attend. Contact me privately here if you want to meet up and say hello, or possibly grab dinner after the show Friday!
Take care and see you there! The December show is always the best!
