If you went to Wizard World this past weekend, hope you had a great time! Personally, it's too soon after Comic Con and too close to before New York Comic Con (which I'll be attending again this year) and I don't want to get Con'd out. And it's always the same weekend as Market Days. So for you gay geeks out there who didn't get your geeky fix this month, join us for the next Geeks OUT event at Spin on August 17 ? Flame On! will be an end of summer BBQ on the patio of Spin from 4p-8p. It's gonna be awesome!
