On Sunday, June 19th, my travels took me to North Carolina to the Charlotte Convention Center and the final day of the 2016 HeroesCon, which is always a blast for a huge comic nerd like me. As always, I look forward to these annual events and meeting interesting folks with similar interests in everything from classic monsters, science fiction, comics, cartoons, and cult classic films.

  1. I was at this place last week. This is such a joy as a place for food! I had a beautiful time here. It reminded me of another center in Texas. A beautiful, wonderful venue Houston TX that had excellent atmosphere.

    1. It is a pretty amazing place. I didn't really get to try the food there cause of the loooong lines (LOL!) but I totally enjoy the way they have the place laid out. The atmosphere there is just marvelous. Glad you liked it.
