WhedonCon 2018

I attended my first sci-fi convention this month: WhedonCon. A Whedonverse convention by fans, for fans, while raising money for charity.

The event takes place at the Hyatt Regency literally attached to the DFW Airport in Dallas, Texas. So that made it easy, especially if you fly American. You just walk through the tunnel in the parking garage and VOILA you are there! And since we were staying at the same hotel as the convention that best thing...
