It’s almost that time again. comedy4cast is headed back to Atlanta for Dragon*Con. This convention bills itself as is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention in the universe, focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film.
With so much going on, how can you find us? It’s easy. Here’s a list.

2:30pm #PizzaFriday lunch at the Mellow Mushroom
We can’t let a Friday go by without enjoying a slice or two (or three). Meet on the sidewalk outside the Peachtree Street entrance to the Hyatt Regency (the doors just past the hotel’s “Sway” restaurant) at 2:30pm for a short walk over to the Mellow Mushroom, 400 West Peachtree Street. Be sure to follow comedy4cast on Twitter for updates.
7:00pm comedy4cast and friends LIVE!
THE BIG ONE! This is comedy4cast’s only live show of the year and we want to see YOU there. This year the Podcasting track will be in Room 203 of the Hilton (second floor, right near the escalators). And be sure to stick around after our show for Technorama Live at 8:30pm.

10am 12th Annual Dragon*Con Parade
If you’ve never seen the parade, you’ve missing out. It’s huge! Several blocks of downtown Atlanta are blocked off just for Dragon^Con. You’ll spot Star Wars Stormtroopers, Star Trek Redshirts, Wizards, Zombies, Superheros and more. Clinton be marching with the Men in Black group organized by Chuck and Kreg from Technorama. This year Clinton will don yet another too-hot-for-the-weather costume and be an alien from the MIB universe!
Sunday, September 1
5:30pm 2013 Parsec Awards
comedy4cast is honored to be a finalist for the Best Speculative Fiction Comedy/Parody Podcast award. Come and cheer us on (and all the other great podcasts). It’s always a fun time. The event will be held in the Regency V Ballroom at the Hyatt.
7:00pm Guiness Book of World Records Attempt
Dragon*Con will be attempting to break the world record for most people in “Star Trek” costumes in one place at one time. If the Parsec ceremony is over in time, Clinton will be rushing over to the Attrium Ballroom at the Marriott to help out with the attempt. Even if you can’t attend the Parsecs, Clinton asks you to grab your best Trek costume and help make history at this event!
If more gets added to the schedule, we’ll try to add it here. But Twitter is really the best place for up-to-the-minute details.
