(Pre)Con-Man: Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo 2014
But Calgary is coming on strong with the announcement that Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver, would attend this little shindig along with Biehn, Henriksen, Rolston and Goldstein IN ADDITION to convention newbies Bill Paxton, Paul Reiser and Carrie Henn. Now that's some fucking organizational skillz. EXPOsed is being held outside the actual convention and requires a separate, not cheap ticket. But hey, this is basically the entire main cast of one of my favorite movies we're talking about here and they're treating it right, using a local stadium to house the event. So how did I spend my Saturday morning? By getting tickets to EXPOsed, then moving right into securing passes to Calgary Expo (Friday and Sunday still available!), booking flights and checking out all of the beautifully swanky downtown hotels the Expo has teamed up with provide discounts for show goers.
Next up, finding Calgary's tastiest chow down spots via lots and lots of Food Network and Travel Channel programs. See ya up north!
It was either a tourism pitch or a Bon Iver song...
