The Empire gathers in Seattle NEXT MONTH for a huge party and Geek Girl Con #Site News#Seattle September 8 | Cat Rocketship Photo by Allen Chatto. Used under Creative Commons license. You guys, Geek Girl Con is just a month away and I am stoked. Most of the Offbeat Empire staff will convene in Seattle, WA, meaning — I'll get to meet my cohorts and even better, we'll get to meet readers! If you're even considering coming out, read all the details on Ariel's big bad Con post. We'll have a panel on Sunday at the Con AND — and I'm a little frightened for this — a mad party that Friday night featuring nerdy burlesque, cupcakes, and some crazy karaoke. Please note: I do a mean karaoke interpretive backup dance. Read up and make plans. I can't wait! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.
