  • Small Press Expo – A Comics and Graphic Arts Festival

    Marriott Bethesda North Hotel & Conference Center

    The annual SPX comics and graphic arts festival presents the best and brightest established creators in independent comics. In addition to the opportunity for public exposure and potential revenue the festival provides to attending artists, the event also allows less established to network with publishers and prominent creators, providing unique opportunities for the comic artist/writer that is just starting out. SPX prides itself on maintaining an open (rather than curated) registration policy and open access between attendees, exhibitors and volunteers. SPX is unique amongst the various comic book exhibitions, as it does not allow retailers to have a formal presence at the festival. Only creators and publishers are allowed to exhibit. The festival includes: • A public exhibition where artists, creators and publishers and the public interact in an informal setting. Graphic novels, comics and related merchandise are for sale and SPX attendees can interact with the attending creators/publishers. • A series of symposium held during the festival, where creators of comics engage in formal panel discussions and/or interviews open to SPX attendees. • SPX often sponsors off-site events the week of the convention, including academic seminars, book signings and school outreach programs. ADMISSION: $15 Saturday $10 Sunday $20 Weekend Pass HOURS: Saturday: 11AM-7PM Sunday: Noon to 6PM Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.

  • Puzzled Pint DC/Arlington and Puzzle Extravaganza!

    Solve the Puzzle to Find out!

    Event Location: Someplace in DC/Arlington – solve the puzzle to find out! SPECIAL EVENT: This month is Puzzled Pint DC/Arlington's fifth anniversary and so they are planning a puzzle extravaganza to celebrate! Be prepared for a puzzle cornucopia!! What can be a more geeky night out than spending an evening solving puzzles in a pub? We'll join this month's Puzzled Pint event -- see www.puzzledpint.com This free event works like this: Every second Tuesday of the month, people get will get together in a pub and solve puzzles! The previous Friday, a puzzle will be posted at www.puzzledpint.com. Solve this puzzle, and you'll be given the location where we'll meet the following Tuesday. On that day, we'll form into groups and spend the evening solving even more puzzles! Some notes: -- These are "puzzle hunt" style puzzles, which have an interesting style of their own. If you are new to this kind of puzzle, DON'T PANIC when you first see the location puzzle, and don't hesitate to get hints. After all, the point is to have fun, not be frustrated! -- Also, for new people, a basic guide is available here: http://www.puzzledpint.com/files/3513/8254/7894/2013_10_22_Puzzling_Basics_Infographic.pdf -- Note that this event isn’t hosted by GNO, but by Puzzled Pint. Feel free to post here to form groups etc, but don’t expect the kind Puzzled Pint Organizers to have read any messages here. -- If people come late, they can either form their own group, or join a pre-existing group. However, since the event is designed for groups of 3 or 4 people, forming a new group will probably work out better. The 7:00 time is just when they start handing out the puzzles -- if your group wants to start later, that'll be fine. There is also a Puzzled Pint somewhere in in Fairfax County on the same night, if that's more convenient for you.
