Awesome Con, the Washington D.C. comic book and pop-culture convention, is this weekend. Like last year’s inaugural event, it’s being held in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Unlike last year’s inaugural event, the price of admission is $30 a day.
Last year it was only $15 a day.
I was thinking about going this year, but not if it means paying twice as much as last year. That just seems wrong. Parking is around $25 near the convention center. That means it would cost Sheri and I $85 just to walk in the door and that doesn’t include overpriced food and drink. That also doesn’t include anything purchased in the dealer room.
It doesn’t seem like it would be worth it.
