Now these guys know how to party! I first met the Con*tourage Crue back in March at the Infestation Atlanta event where my company provided media coverage . Con*tourage puts tremendous effort into each party to promote music, artists, pancake chow downs, and more. Their tag line says it all!
“It’s about the CON parties…the CON costumes…the CON atmosphere…and THE CON PEOPLE. Whatever the reason, CON*tourage is there! Band together with us. UNITE! www.CON-tourage.com
And their professionalism is second to none! If you haven’t experienced a Con*tourage party then you need to! Follow the link for more details and come meet the Con”tourage crue at Dragon Con.http://www.facebook.com/pages/CON-touragecom/222461113229

New to Atlanta? If your here for Dragon Con then you need to pay a visit to The Diesel filling Station club ! The diesel is the #1 spot for The Walking Dead viewing parties in Atlanta. They recently hosted a zombie pub crawl, and have some great food plus plenty of things to quench your thirst! Just a short trip away from the Con hotels, it’s well worth a visit! In addition, they’re also a diamond sponsor for this year’s Con*tourage parties, so they get an “A ” in my book! http://www.facebook.com/DieselFillingStation
Want some really cool art? Then this is the man to see at Dragon con! Back in March at Infestation Atlanta, I bought a couple of sketches from this talented artist. One of which, a Walking Dead portrait went straight to TX. to the Bram Stoker award winning novelist Joe McKinney. And yes, he was VERY impressed with Billy’s work. Anyway, follow this link to his site. His table at the con is exhibitor booth TBL79 . When you meet him, tell him John from deadburiedandback sent you!
