The annual convention of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society
that takes place over the Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 26-28) features writers panels, workshops, all-day anime screenings, a costume contest, dealers' room, and a dance on Friday & Saturday night, among other activities. A highlight is a big Saturday night party that takes over two floors of the LAX Marriot Hotel. I've attended LOSCON the past two years, and it's always a blast; my sister, who has published a fantasy trilogy, is a panelist. Tickets - called a "membership" - are $45 for all three days.
Purchase tickets on the LOSCON37 website. The price stays $45 through Nov. 14. I don't think there are day passes. There are restaurants in and around the hotel. If you wish to rent a hotel room, there is a special group rate available, information on the LOSCON37 website, http://www.loscon37.org/
. Parking is available on the hotel lot for $11/day, although you might be able to find cheaper street parking. For a more detailed description of what LOSCON offers, go to this link for last year's event, http://www.loscon37.org/36/html/mainmenu.html
I'm planning on attending all 3 days. When you RSVP, write what day(s) you are coming on your RSVP, so I know who to expect on what days. If you'd like to attend the Saturday party, and/or the Fri./Sat. dances, you can indicate that on your RSVP. Since the schedule is not up on the website yet, our meeting time may change. If necessary, I will e-mail further details to those of you who RSVP.
I'm planning this Meetup as a joint event with the I'm a Cool Nerd Meetup.
Hope to see you there, Smart Singles!
