As labor day weekend as come, Dragon Con came with it, no different than prior years members of our community traveled to Atlanta to enjoy the con. If you are not familiar with Dragon Con, Dragon Con is a federated convention. There are many concurrent conventions or "tracks" running at the same time ensuring there is something there for every one. Dragon Con is also a huge destination for cosplay every year. Our group showed up throughout Thursday jet lagged from travel and got ourselves checked into the convention hotel. This was the first year our group had won the hotel hunger games and got a con hotel room. After unpacking we made our way to the registration line that had wrapped half way around the Sheraton outside and weaved endlessly through the hotel basement. Even though the line was thousands of people long we where registered, passes in had within 30 minutes. With the required legwork complete we set out for food.
The Metro is an excellent place to get food, its in the middle of the convention area, open 24/7, has amazing food and a great atmosphere. The only problem is during dragon con it can take a while to get a seat. After getting some food we relaxed for a bit and then set out to explore the convention grounds and show the first timers around downtown Atlanta.
We decided to call it an early night and skipped all of the parties. The next morning we where up bright and early and hit the EFF track for our first panel.
