I’m just bustin’ to tell you all about the fun and excitement of the coolest comic book convention of them all. Fallcon 21 was held in mirthful Minneapolis this weekend and a blast was had by all.
After the show that day, the wife and I, whom I’ll affectionately refer to as “CARA”, went out to eat. Now, usually when I travel, I like to go to a place we don’t have at home. So when we venture forth into the Minnesota Wild, (and trust me…that’ll be the last sports reference you’ll get from me here.) I decided to find a nice “different” restaurant. First we passed by an Indian place that really looked good, but Cara wasn’t interested. Then we saw a Greek place by the name of “DINO’S”. Looked promising, but we decided to go deeper into the city. Soon we came across a great pizza joint called “OLD CHICAGO”. Sounded fantastic. This was our place. We go in and immediately we’re told there’s a 30 minute wait. ARRGH…I was hungry….I couldn’t wait an eternity to chow down! As we sadly walked outside, we smelled the most wonderful of all culinary scents…BBQ!! I’m a big fan of the BBQ so we went across the highway following our noses. When we got there and got in, only then did we realize we were in a “Famous Dave’s” restaurant. Now, anyone who lives in this general area knows, Famous Dave’s is about as common as baby bunny rabbits on Easter weekend!
Sigh…we were hungry, so we said “screw it”, and went inside and gorged ourselves!
Sunday was rolling along as planned at least! We showed up and met with Rascally Rene Castellano at the Instant Press table. And, on the table, were multitudes of copies of my comic “Starbomb”!
I had fun; Cara had fun…we all had a blast! I’m not sure which show I’ll be at next, but I do want to thank all of you that came and visited the table…it was good meeting everyone!
And for the record, I wound up buying over 400 comics that weekend! I told you I overspent!
