Burbank Marriott Convention Center
2500 Hollywood WayBurbank, CA 91505

The Marriot isn't the best choice for a meeting place. I feel it's kind of run down and looks ugly on the inside. It looked very dismal when I went to Weekend Of Horrors. I know Burbank is heavily saturated in the cartoon industry, but at least a better location could have been picked. Parking also sucks at the Marriot.

The Invention of Dr. Nakamats (Dr. Nakamats in person!
 If you've ever watched a special on tv with a strange country like guy in Japn you've probably seen Dr. Nakamats. This crazy inventor has come up with thousands of strange devices that seem more likely to exist in a Dr. Seuss book than in reality.

11/18 @ 8:00pm
 Tickets - $12
