Convention Announcement: Mechacon

In a couple days, Heidi Black and myself will be boarding a plane to return to my hometown of New Orleans.  Although we plan on doing a little site-seeing while there, our main objective is:

In years past, I've been to Mechacon several times (mostly to cosplay), but this was when it was at the Hilton in Lafayette, La.  Those of you familiar with Louisiana know there isn't much to do in Laffy.  This year, it's being held in New Orleans proper (not Kenner "New Orleans" or Metairie "New Orleans") down on Poydras St, which the website claims is within walking distance of the French Quarter.  While technically true, my mother didn't raise a fool.  Ladies don't walk around New Orleans unescorted (or without their mace) at night.

Heidi and I will be leaving early so that we can enjoy the city of my youth without trying to juggle the hassles of Artist Alley tables, but by Thursday, we'll be all business.  If you're in the area, you should drop by and visit us.

So here's the details:

Hilton New Orleans Riverside
Two Poydras Street
New Orleans, LA 70130
