Buffy Summers’ 30th Birthday Bash!
Our favorite Vampire Slayer, Buffy Summers, is turning the big 3-0 on January 19th, 2011 and GeekGirlCon wants to celebrate!
Buffy’s birthdays always fall prey to disaster: be it boyfriends who turn evil, inexplicable loss of powers, little sisters who get into trouble – and little sisters who get into trouble again. Whatever it is, something always goes horribly, terribly, awry. So we plan on making this a great one for the woman who fights the forces of evil and saves the world! A lot!
Here in Seattle, where GeekGirlCon is based, we are pleased to co-host an event with the fabulous, female-friendly Comics Dungeon in Wallingford. They will be providing discounts of up to 25% on Whedon titles! We will bring cake! There may be singing!
As this occasion also marks the release of the finale of the ground-breaking comic book series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Dark Horse is helping comic book stores around the country celebrate with games, prizes, and giveaways. (See their Facebook Page for events in other cities including Missoula, MT; New York, NY; Atlanta, GA; Hurst, TX; Plano, TX; and Portland, OR.)
GeekGirlCon’s celebration at Comics Dungeon, 250 Northeast 45th Street, Seattle, WA 98105, will take place from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Wednesday, January 19, 2011.
Our GeekGirlCon friends in Los Angeles will be celebrating with Meltdown Comics, located at 7522 Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90046 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and those of us in San Francisco will be at Isotope Comics at 326 Fell Street San Francisco, CA 94102 from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm.
We hope our GeekGirlCon peeps, allies, and Scoobies will be enjoying similar parties all over the world.
Send photos of your event to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on our Facebook and Flickr pages!
