Here’s a couple of places that I’m going to be hitting up this weekend and I thought you might be interested as well. These are great whether it rains or not. Sometimes the best memories are made when we go out and get wet and not worry about it.
XCON WORLD Comic Convention Show @ Myrtle Beach Convention Center
All sorts of stuff going on for everyone…..single, married, family, kids, zombies, nerds….
Kids 12 and under get in FREE ! free is good.
Check out the website for a full listing of celebrity appearances, prices, including a 3-day admission deal and your admission to the show secures you a discount for the Zombie Walk on Saturday night and you can check out the details for that here.
I also took notice of a Cosplay-Mageddon Costume Contest with over $10,000 in prizes. You can check out those details here and it looks like you can win for group participation as well.
Sounds like oodles of fun and I have to add this….even if you aren’t a nerd and you don’t understand any of this or the terminology, etc……then maybe you are someone who just wants to experience something different. Step away from the mundane rituals of your life and experience something new. Who knows, next year you may come dressed as a character???? maybe?
Have you been to the Nerd Bar yet? 807 Main St, Myrtle Beach // 843-839-4820
The good folks at the Nerd Bar are the creators of the XCON World Comic Convention. Seems like a cool place to hang out and they have an Open Mic on Saturday nights and other cool stuff. Not sure if they will be open this weekend with the Convention going on, but you can
Comedy Cabana, Comedy Club
(heading North on Bypass….stay in right lane as you pass Pirate’s Voyage. As you come up over the bridge, the Club will be on our right) (you’re welcome)
Check out their website for a listing of comedians. There are usually 2 professional and one or two amateur comedians on the weekend and it’s always cool to support those just getting into the craft and to support Live Comedy!!!
Find a babysitter and call the Club and make a reservation. You will have to hold a reservation with a card, but you don’t have to pay with a card when you get there.
Be it known unto thee….that as with all comedy venues, there is a 2-item minimum purchase in the club….this DOES NOT include the bar and grill area. Keep that in mind. But also keep in mind that you can order something as simple as 2 sodas.
Keep in mind as well…….this is not gourmet fare by any means. This is food to munch on….nachos and the like. I usually stick with a beer from a bottle.
I would love to hear about your experience if you make it to any or all of these events. Thanks!
