my Dragon Con 2021 schedule

Dragon Con is back this year, in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend (starting the night of the 2nd of September and going to Labor Day itself, Monday the 6th), and despite Georgia turning into a COVID hotspot, Wrenn and I plan to attend. We’ll be masked the entire time, which is a requirement of the convention. In addition, and the con is requiring that all attendees either be vaccinated or have proof of a recent negative COVID test, so that’s good.

As usual for me at DC, my schedule is batshit crazy.
