The Official Xena Convention
Xena and Gabrielle in person Sunday
February 7-9
Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport
 2500 N. Hollywood Way
Burbank, California 91505
Parking is pricey, $14 and up, it's near an airport so a big scam

Because the unofficial Xena convention is just no good. Celebrate the series and ask the question if Xena will play Wonder Woman's mom in the new live Justice League action film series. 

*If you're going, tell the Marriot to get some new carpet, it's the ugliest carpet ever in the convention Hall. Staff is fine, but it's one of the most ugly hotels you'll ever go into. I don't mean dirty I mean ugly.
What kind of pattern is this?
